Xiaomi"s Redmày series has been wildly popular over the past few years & for good reason.

After pushing powerful components & cutting prices, manufacturers have started focusing on premium aesthetics and build quality, which appeal even more khổng lồ customers. We"ve sầu seen a lot of metal being being used by companies rather than plastic, such as with the recently released Honor 5 X (Review) và Le Eco Le 1s (Review). In terms of specifications, 3GB of RAM is not something khổng lồ boast about anymore, và Coolpad has proven to everyone with the Coolpad chú ý 3 (Review) that even fingerprint sensors are not restricted khổng lồ premium phones.


In light of all this, the Redmi 2 series feels a bit dated, và so Xiaomi is right on time with the new Redngươi cảnh báo 3. We had a first look at the device baông chồng in December, although that was the original version running on a MediaTek processor. The one launched in India sports a more potent Qualcomm chip which should make it more competitive sầu. Just lượt thích the Xiaomày Redmày 2 Prime, the Redmày Note 3 will also be made in India.

The two biggest competitors for the Redmi Note 3 that immediately spring khổng lồ mind are the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note và LeEco"s Le 1s. Can Xiaomi"s latest offering become the undisputed winner in the sub-Rs.15,000 segment? Let"s find out.

Look and feelThe moment you take it out of the box, the Redngươi Note 3 looks and feels incredibly premium, especially in gold. The full-metal body toàn thân gets a smooth matte finish that doesn"t attract fingerprints. It"s easy lớn keep clean too, as dust & grime come off with a simple wipe.

In the front, we have the 5.5-inch full-HD IPS display with very narrow side bezels. There"s a glossy rim running along the edge of the front facia, which is elevated above sầu the rest of the display khổng lồ protect it from scratches when the phone is placed face-down. It"s a nice kiến thiết touch but it"s also a bit of an annoyance on the ear when you"re making calls. The display has a scratch resistant layer, although Xiaomày hasn"t explicitly stated this anywhere.

*

There"s a 5-megapixel camera on the top along with a notification LED for alerts. Mercifully, the capacitive buttons at the bottom are backlit. The volume rocker và power button are quite ergonomically placed on the right, while the left side houses the hybrid Dual-SIM tray. In addition to the headphones socket on the top, we also have sầu an infrared (IR) emitter. The phone uses a standard Micro-USB connector for charging and data transfers.

*

Around the baông chồng, we have a 16-megapixel camera, a dual-tone dual-LED flash, the fingerprint sensor, và a speaker grille at the bottom. The Redngươi Note 3 ships with a 10W charger, data cable, SIM ejector tool, và instruction leaflets. The unique of the accessories seems good, và they should last.

*

We feel that Xiaomày has done a terrific job with the design and aesthetics of the Redngươi cảnh báo 3. The finish of the phone is excellent và the display is crisp and vibrant. The IPS panel has very good colour reproduction và features Xiaomi"s Sunlight Display hardware feature which indeed makes it decently legible even under direct sunlight.

We also like how comfortable the phone feels in the hvà. It"s a bit tricky khổng lồ use one-handed, but is fairly slyên ổn at 8.7mm with good weight distribution.

SpecificationsThe Xiaomày Redmày chú ý 3 might be a budget smartphone but there"s certainly nothing low-over about the hardware it packs. This is the first phone to roll out with Qualcomm"s Snaprồng 650 SoC, which is a pretty big deal given its near-flagship màn chơi performance in some benchmarks. It"s a hexa-core SoC, much lượt thích the SnapLong 808 found in the Mokhổng lồ X Style, but instead of the Cortex-A57 cores, we have sầu two of ARM"s more powerful Cortex-A72 cores running at 1.8GHz. The other four cores are Cortex-A53s which chug along at 1.4GHz. This SoC still uses the 28nm fabrication process but the GPU is a newer Adreno 510, which is one notch lower than what"s present in the flagship SnapLong 820 chip.

*

In benchmarks, we witnessed some pretty impressive sầu numbers especially considering the price of the device. We got an average of 74,303 in AnTuTu, which is higher than what we got from many high-end phones based on the Snapdragon 810. GPU performance is equally impressive sầu, & we recorded 31fps in the T-Rex kiểm tra in GFXbench, which once again is competitive sầu to lớn scores posted by Snaprồng 810 devices.

The Xiaongươi Redmày lưu ý 3 will come in two variants. What we have today is the one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, but you can opt for the other Mã Sản Phẩm with 2GB of RAM & 16GB storage if your budget is tight. Officially, storage can be expanded by up to 32GB by using a microSD thẻ instead of a second SIM in the hybrid slot, though unofficially you can put cards of bigger storage capađô thị as well.

Thanks to lớn the Qualcomm chip, the phone features Category 7 LTE for B& 3, 5, 40 và 41 along with VoLTE support. You also get dual-bvà Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, Bluetooh 4.1, USB OTG, FM radio, Miracast, GLONASS, and BeiDou. NFC is one feature that"s missing.

SoftwareThe phone ships with an Android Lollipop fork called MIUI 7, which is has been reworked from the ground up. Compared khổng lồ earlier versions of MIUI, version 7 is certainly more likable & better polished. It"s still a single-layered interface, but it does let users customise the look & feel with transition effects và themes. The Theme Store app has a pretty good selection of không tính tiền themes, và we particularly liked the Marshmallow one.

*

The lock screen gets a feature called Wallpaper Carousel, which displays random wallpapers from a user-selected collection which is updated daily. The notification shade has separate tabs for incoming alerts & toggle switches, khổng lồ avoid clutter. There"s also a lite mode for those looking for a simplified interface, & a child mode that lets you restrict which apps your children have access to when you let them play with your phone. The Settings phầm mềm is where you"ll find the most interesting changes.

Reading mode, which is essentially a bluelight filter, can be toggled from the notification shade. The strength of the filter can be adjusted in the Display sub-menu. The fingerprint sensor can recognise up to lớn five sầu fingerprints. Xiaomi Vice President Hugo Barra stated during the phone"s launch that it"s possible lớn record your lip pattern too, though it failed khổng lồ unlock the phone when we tried it.

Signing up for a Mi account gives you 5GB of cloud storage for backing up your contacts, messages, photos, etc. You also have the option to lớn password protect specific apps to keep nosy people out of your private chats, for example. You can hide files with fingerprint authentication using the Explorer tiện ích.

Xiaongươi has incorporated a one-handed mode, which you can enter or exit by simply swiping right from the capacitive Home button. You can even choose the kích cỡ to which you want the display khổng lồ shrink. The phone comes with a preloaded app called Mi Mover which lets you move sầu apps và data to or from any other Android device. MIUI 7 supports up lớn 13 indic languages. Apart from the standard Google keyboard and SwiftKey, our chạy thử unit also had a keyboard called Fleksy, which turned out to lớn be much better than we had expected.

In terms of preloaded apps, you get basic productivity tools along with some additional ones such as Mi Remote. This lets you phối up the IR emitter for various infrared-capable devices, including DSLR cameras. The Mi Store ứng dụng is a marketplace for all Xiaomày products sold in India. The Security ứng dụng lets you monitor data usage và run basic maintenance tasks. You also get Facebook, WPS Office, and the usual Google apps.

PerformanceXiaongươi Redmi lưu ý 3"s hardware & software come together nicely khổng lồ deliver a very pleasing Android experience. The interface is fluid with barely any noticeable stutter when multitasking. điện thoại tư vấn unique is good and the phone had no trouble latching on khổng lồ multiple carriers" LTE networks in Mumbai.

Our Đánh Giá unit was fairly stable apart from a few reboots which occurred when the phone got warm when running benchmark tests with it plugged in. Speaking of heat, the metal body does get warm during continuous video playback và when recording videos, but it doesn"t get too uncomfortable.

*

One niggling issue we did encounter was the long time it took to get both SIMs working. This wasn"t a problem if there was only a single SIM in the phone, but when we inserted a second one, it would take a really long time for the phone to lớn detect it. We were stuck with a "No Service" message for more than 10 minutes on one such occasion. Rebooting the phone didn"t help. This could be a pain if you swap SIMs often, but otherwise it"s not that big a deal. We"re happy lớn report that the fingerprint sensor works well và is quite fast at unlocking the phone.

The Redngươi chú ý 3 is great for multitruyền thông, especially thanks to lớn its crisp display. The phone can handle 4K Clip playbachồng. The speaker is fairly loud for alerts và truyền thông although we missed the stereo effect. The music player is functional và you can switch between different audio profiles mix for different types of earphones. You can quickly nội dung truyền thông media files with other Xiaongươi devices using Mi Drop. We didn"t have sầu issues with audio unique with our own earphones. In the 32GB version, you get about 26.2GB of accessible storage space. On average, you have about 1GB of không tính tiền RAM available if you only have a single tiện ích running.

CameraThe rear camera has a 16-megapixel sensor và a wide f/2.0 aperture. Both landscapes and macro shots captured in daylight have good detail. Colour reproduction is good too. However, objects in focus lachồng a bit of definition & aren"t very sharp, but this is only visible once you zoom in. Images look good on the phone"s display though, & as long as you don"t need lớn crop the picture at full form size, you should be good.

The camera also struggles a bit with sharpness và depth under artificial lighting. Low-light images are not too shabby, as there"s barely any visible noise in the dark areas. The dual-tone flash is decent for nearby objects but don"t expect too much from it. 1080p video recording is good but very shaky due khổng lồ laông xã of any software stabilisation. Also, 720p đoạn Clip quality is not great so we recommend shooting in full-HD all the time. The front camera captures good selfies in daylight thanks to the same wide f/2.0 aperture.

The camera tiện ích is simple to lớn use & has plenty of shooting modes. We liked the handy HDR toggle switch next to the shutter button, which makes life a lot simpler. You swipe down or left for filters, and the other way for shooting modes, depending on whether you"re holding the phone in landscape or portrait. The Panorama mode does an okay job of stitching photos together. The Manual mode lets you play with White balance and ISO settings but there aren"t any options for aperture or shutter speed.

The focusing tốc độ is good, even in low light. You can capture an image with the secondary shutter button placed in the centre of the focus ring. Burst mode also works well. Other modes includes Gradient, which helps màn chơi out shots even if you tilt the phone; Fish eye, which adds a fun effect; and Beautify which lets you smoothen out skin blemishes.

Battery lifeThe non-removable 4050mAh battery managed khổng lồ get us through 12 hours và 21 minutes of continuous Clip playbaông xã, which is quite good. During actual usage, we easily managed lớn go more than a day, và this was without resorting khổng lồ the battery saving modes. The phone supports Qualcomm"s Quiông chồng Charge feature, and we managed to lớn charge the Redmày lưu ý 3 up to lớn trăng tròn percent in half an hour. We wouldn"t Hotline this super quiông chồng but it"s better than nothing.

VerdictThe Xiaomi Redmi cảnh báo 3 is priced at Rs. 9,999 for 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, và Rs.11,999 for 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which is very aggressive sầu when you consider the overall package.

It"s hard to lớn find fault with the Redmày cảnh báo 3 as it ticks all the right boxes, và in some ways, rivals phones that cost a lot more. The metal toàn thân & fingerprint sensor are welcome additions to lớn the Redngươi series, và make the cảnh báo 3 feel relevant in năm nhâm thìn. You also get a great display, very good battery life, và a powerful SoC. The camera isn"t too bad, although we could have done with sharper stills and better unique HD videos. MIUI 7 is improved compared lớn previous versions, and is quite likable. We bởi vì wish storage expansion beyond 32GB was officially supported, and it woudn"t have hurt lớn throw in NFC just khổng lồ complete the package.

A few kinks aside, we believe sầu that the Xiaongươi Redmi Note 3 is easily one of the best smartphones available for under Rs.15,000 today, và has the potential to get better with future software updates. If you are confused between this, the Lenovo Vibe K4 cảnh báo (Review) and the Le 1s (Review), we can confidently give the Xiaomi Redmày lưu ý 3 our vote.
