Xiaomi Mi 3 review

 

Chinese cult smash is well worth a risky import buy

Superb power for the price ; Impressive camera ; Good battery life

Only available via import ; Base speaker easily muffled ; Some Chinese text

Ratings in-depth Xiaomi (pronounced "Shiao Me") has been mentioned a few times before on TechRadar, regularly picked out as "one to watch" for the future as the emerging smartphone brand becomes more widely known.

Обзор смартфона Xiaomi Mi 3

 

Смартфон первой волны устройств на базе Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, а также первый и пока единственный флагман с MIUI – насколько хорош китайский Xiaomi Mi 3 в реальности?

За месяц использования Xiaomi Mi 3 в качестве основного смартфона у меня не было проблем с качеством приема сигнала сети, а единственный досадный минус устройства, на который я считаю необходимым обратить внимание – нестабильность MIUI в некоторых...

Xiaomi Mi 3 vs Xiaomi Mi 4: Winners and sinners

 

The Xiaomi Mi 3, one of the most popular smartphones in China, is up against its own successor, the Mi 4. Two generations ready to clash: boxes opened, benchmarks loaded, audio on, cameras rolling, batteries charged.

For the record, these two phones are, officially, only available in China and the Asia Pacific. They can be purchased online and shipped to Europe hassle-free though and we think the build and features for the price will get enough people interested.
