Xiaomi Redmi 3S Review

 

Low-cost Chinese smartphone vendor Xiaomi is at it again, presenting the latest addition to its Redmi line-up of affordable devices, the Redmi 3S. Priced somewhere between $100 – $160 in China (the price ending up a bit higher for global consumers),...

Good quality build ; Decent camera ; Long battery life

No worldwide network support ; Little storage space in the base model ; Performance is middling

The base model Redmi 3S certainly packs a lot of punch for such a cheap device, but it's a smartphone made primarily for Chinese customers. While the absence of world network support can be corrected with the required changes and certifications, the...

Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime Review

 

Good design ; Easy to operate with one hand ; Impressive battery life ; Quick fingerprint recognition

Hybrid SIM slot ; Gets a bit warm with camera use

At Rs. 8,999, the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime no doubt brings a lot to the table. The metal body feels premium, while the 4100mAh battery offers the user enough power to last more than a day. The 3GB of RAM makes sure that the user doesn't face any lags.

Good Phone, BAD Aftersales service

Best mobile phone I have ever owned

 

games it would probably last even longer. I am very impressed with this phone, and highly recommend it to anyone looking at buying one of the more expensive phones. This one does it all and even the camera takes better pictures than my Canon 16 MP...
