Hands on Review

>>Redmi 3 has a new packaging box just like Redmi Note 3. The new design looks clean, classy and you can even use it as a gift

>>Redmi 3 has a 5 inch full metal body and the resolution of the screen is 720p. Although many Mi Fans prefer 1080p than 720p but in Redmi 3 the visual difference is minimal. It has a thickness of 8.5mm and 1mm thinner than Redmi 2. Everyone is concern about the weight of the phone as the battery capacity is doubled compared to Redmi 2. Don’t worry guys Redmi 3 just weight 144g thus it would not be a burden in your pocket

>>Design-wise, the device comes with a full metal body and “an all-new lattice design, made up of 4166 stars woven together to reflect a gorgeous arrangement of diamonds,” the company said in the press release.

>>Redmi 3 has an infrared and guess what? You may use it as a remote control for electrical appliances. You may control Air conditioners, Tvs, Fans just using your smart phone

>>Redmi 3’s camera is greatly improved to 13MP and supports 0.1s ultra-fast PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) , 5 MP front camera




Redmi 3 packed with 4100 mAh battery and work greatly together with MIUI 7. Basically you only need to charge the phone 2 days once for daily usage.

>>Redmi 3 comes with MIUI 7 based on Android 5.1.1, the performance of the Redmi 3 is really good and we will have another thread focusing on user’s experience, stay tuned with us
