Xiaomi had managed lớn create ripples in the Indian smartphone market with its sub Rs 10,000 phones such as Redmi Note, Redmi chú ý 4G, Redmi cảnh báo Prime. Even the slightly more expensive phone mi Mi4i was lapped up by Indian consumers with mở cửa arms. One would have thought that it will be very difficult to put brakes on xiaomi growth phenomena post this phase. But that was not how the next part of the story unfolded.


For another year xiaomi mi had absolutely no new phones to offer to lớn the Indian consumers. Parallelly the success of mi led newer players such as Meizu, Coolpad & LeEco lớn make a beeline for India. Both of this combined managed to rub off some of the impact that the company had managed khổng lồ create in the past.

Xiaomi on its part claims that they post the warm welcome they wanted to lớn come out with something that was worth the hype. Sure there was an added pressure on Xiaomi to bring out phones that will help them go further ahead in the race. Redmi note 3 as per them is the star product that it believes will take the company to the next level. They also claim that they have put in a lot of efforts in making sure that is their the next "IT" device. We have been playing around with this phone for over a month now và here is what we feel about the same.


Specifications

Display: 5.5-inch Full HD (1920x100) display OS : app android 5.1.1 Lollipop with MIUI 7 CPU : Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC, 2GB/3GB RAM Storage : 16GB/32GB storage, microSD card support by up to 128GB Cameras : 16MP f/2.0 rear camera (dual-tone LED flash), 5MP front camera Connectivity : Wi-Fi, 3G/4G/2G, GPS, công nghệ bluetooth không dây Battery : 4,050mAh Price : Rs 9,999 (16GB +2GB ROM) Rs 11,999 (32GB+3GB)



Hardware

Redmi lưu ý 3 features a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920x1080) display và is backed by a six-core Snapdragon 650 processor, unlike the trung quốc model that comes with a MediaTek SoC. The điện thoại cảm ứng will be available in two variants- one with 16GB internal memory paired with 2GB of RAM & a 4,000mAh battery unit. The second variant comes packed with 32GB internal memory paired with 3GB of RAM and a slightly larger 4,050mAh battery unit. Both the variants tư vấn Quick Charge technology.


In terms of imaging, the rear has a 16MP camera và the front is equipped with a 5MP sensor for selfies. The Redmi chú ý 3 is Xiaomi"s first ever handset to lớn pack a fingerprint scanner, which is placed right below the camera sensor & the dual LED flash. You can store up to 5 fingers in this phone & as per Xiaomi, it unlocks the phone in just 0.3 seconds.

The handset is 4G enabled (and it supports all four LTE brands) & comes with dual-SIM support, one micro & one nano. The hybrid SIM card tray can also be used lớn expand the memory by up lớn 128GB via microSD card.

Key features

The Coolpad chú ý 3 changed the dynamics of the sub Rs 10,000 phones by offering a fingerprint authentication in that category. Now we have plenty of phones that offer the same and Xiaomi Redmi cảnh báo 3 is also one of them. The fingerprint scanner is at the back and it is very responsive và quick.

At the launch event, Hugo Barra had also demonstrated unlocking his phone via his lip mark, which we still maintain was gross & yes we did not really check if that works equally well for us. However, if that idea suits you, then you can set up your lips as your authentication và let us know how that experiences goes for you.

The phone promises ample storage as it comes with a microSD slot, but if you plan to use the same you will have lớn sacrifice the other SIM slot. Xiaomi Redmi lưu ý 3 does tư vấn LTE on both the SIM & other connectivity options are Wi-Fi 802.11n, công nghệ bluetooth không dây 4.1, và even an IR blaster.



We used the IR blaster khổng lồ connect lớn a Samsung TV, Airtel Digital TV box và Voltas AC & did not face any hurdle doing the same.

Moving on to the display, xiaomi mi Redmi lưu ý 3 comes with 1,920x1,080 pixels resolution that offers 401 ppi. There is no word on the display protection on the xiaomi Redmi cảnh báo 3 but it does not have the tendency to pick up scratches or even awkward smudges.

Sunlight display can be a bummer. There is a sunlight mode that does help things a bit but not completely do away with the problem.

There is also a read mode that much like the Night shift mode helps in reducing the strain on the eyes. I think it is a great addition và completely loved it.

Performance

Xiaomi Redmi cảnh báo 3 is powered by Snapdragon 650, which is a hexa-core processor with two Cortex A72 cores and four Cortex A53 cores. Giving it company is Adreno 510 GPU và 3GB of RAM. All this combined made sure that the phone delivers a butter smooth performance. Also there were no heating issues to report about this smartphone.

On the software front, mi Redmi chú ý 3 runs on MIUI 7 baked on the apk 5.1.1 Lollipop. There is a promise of the M coming lớn the phone soon. However, the company tries its best to help you not miss it much by offering some key features via its own UI.

Given the amount of xiaomi mi phones that we have used in the past, MiUi 7 feels familiar. There are a few things that we lượt thích in it like it offers the option to disable autostart for select apps. There is a smart messaging tiện ích that automatically groups notification SMS together and highlights OTP codes. There is a light mode, child mode, and a one-handed mode, that you can opt for if you want lớn use them. Also UI allows you lớn move và uninstall apps in batches if you desire to vì chưng so.

Not to forget there are a plethora of themes available that help you customise the phone your way from the moment you power it on. We did not face any issues getting around with the UI & thankfully it does not pre-loaded with junk apps. There might be a few that you can definitely live without but nothing cringe-worthy here.



Camera

Xiaomi has equipped the Redmi note 3 with a 16MP CMOS sensor that offers an aperture of F2.0. The sensor can record 1080p videos with the stock camera app & can even shoot 4k videos with the help of third buổi tiệc ngọt applications. The rear shooter is paired up with a dual-tone LED flash.

The camera interface of the Redmi cảnh báo 3 is like most of the previous mi devices, which utlises swipes to lớn display the various modes, settings & other controls. A swipe khổng lồ right will give you a number of filters and a left swipe shows the various modes such as Fish eye, Beautify, Tilt shift, Timer và others. You also get a manual mode, which allows you lớn tweak ISO & white balance. Besides, you can shoot time-lapse và slow motion videos và even 4K videos via the third các buổi tiệc nhỏ applications.

Talking about the performance of the 13MP rear sensor, it is quick khổng lồ lock the subject và does not lag while taking a shot. However, we noticed that the images captured by the Redmi lưu ý 3 are on a warmer side và looks more saturated when compared with the pictures taken from Lenovo K5 Plus và Coolpad lưu ý 3, which also sells in the same price-bracket. We have compared the camera performance of the three smartphones that you can kiểm tra here. The low-light performance is also decent. The images are less noisy when compared with other smartphones of same price-point. The smartphone will also please consumers who love khổng lồ take selfies as the 5MP front camera is capable to deliver some amazing selfie shots.

Overall, mi has managed to deliver a budget điện thoại with good imaging capabilities. The điện thoại thông minh captures bright images with vibrant colours & good detailing.

Battery life

For me the most crucial part about the budget phone is the battery. Sure people want a sleek device that click decent selfies but at the over of the day you want a smartphone that can last you all day long. Thankfully, xiaomi Redmi cảnh báo 3 passes that thử nghiệm with flying colours.

We had a 3GB RAM variant of xiaomi mi Redmi lưu ý 3, which packs in a massive 4,050mAh battery and despite the same it does not feel bulky. We have been using the phone for over a month now & would like to admit that at first I was surprised with the amount of juice I could get from the phone. We almost certainly manage to easily last a full day without looking for a charger. Và a typical day for me is couple of hours of calling, almost 5-6 hours of screen time with frequent whatsapp, Facebook & multiple Twitter tài khoản notifications. Also I always had the brightness mode khổng lồ maximum with 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth và GPS consistently switched on.

The phone requires uses a micro USB charger và not the type C one & the only disappointment in the battery front is that it supports Quick Charge 1.0 and not the current standard.

Verdict

Xiaomi Redmi chú ý 3 is a great value for money phone. It has a great design & build quality, decent performance và an awesome battery life. However, we vị think that the company could have enhanced its merits by offering a Quick charge 2.0. Also getting on to game android M brigade will help the điện thoại cảm ứng get more acceptance given that app android N is also in the air if not being pushed over the air.

While xiaomi Redmi lưu ý 3 offers a decent camera but it fails to take decent shots under low lights. Also there is no 4K support. Overall, there is not much to lớn dislike in the phone and it is a good value for money purchase.
