Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

 

The Redmi Note 3 is the latest large-screen, low-cost phone from Chinese handset maker Xiaomi – the company often referred to as "The Apple of the East", thanks to its dominant position in that particular part of the world.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 review

 

Xiaomi's phones aren't officially sold in the UK, but while the brand may not be well known to us Brits it's bigger than Apple and Samsung in China - and tomorrow the Note 3 will go on open sale in India. Redmi is the company's budget smartphone...

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 may not be best suited to UK users out of the box, but with some simple setup tweaks it is an excellent budget Android phone with a fantastic design and performance for the price.

Обзор смартфона Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

 

Redmi Note 3 – смартфон третьего поколения Redmi, недорогих устройств с хорошими характеристиками и привлекательной ценой. Что изменилось, улучшилось по сравнению с Redmi Note 2 и насколько в целом интересен новый Redmi Note?

К качеству приема сигнала сети в Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 за время использования аппарата у меня не возникло никаких претензий. Вибрация при звонке в меру сильная, она хорошо ощутима даже во время ходьбы, когда аппарат лежит в кармане джинсов.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G review: Great value for money at Rs 8,999, but Android 4.2 OS is a letdown - Tech2

 

We review the Redmi Note to see if Xiaomi have another winner on their hands

Xiaomi looks like it has another winner on its hands with the Redmi Note. For those of you who were waiting for a phablet with good specs at an affordable price point, it does not get more economical than t. Sure, there are some drawbacks on the Redmi...

The Meizu M3 Note vs. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Review: Comparing Notes

 

As new technology finds its way into flagship phones, previously cutting-edge features trickle down to mid-range and eventually low-end devices. As an economic policy the efficacy of this approach is debatable; however, it works well enough when...

While the pace of innovation at the high-end naturally slows, the mid-range and low-end phones start looking more attractive. Flagship features and hardware continue to trickle down to lower price points, producing more-capable phones with better user...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 review:

 

I've always been a big fan of Xiaomi's phones and the Redmi Note 3 is no exception, but also may now be my new favourite. That's partly because of the phone's classy metal body (upgraded from plastic on previous models) and partly because of its low...

The Redmi Note 3 features a premium metal body, fingerprint scanner and a brilliant 5.5-inch display all at a low, low, price.

The camera, while adequate for a budget phone, tends to overexpose shots and it's a shame the phone drops the removable battery feature found on the previous model.

With its comfortable design and low price, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is a top choice for phone-buyers on a budget.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Review

 

This review is based on a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 with Snapdragon 650 SoC and 3GB of RAM, running a global software ROM with Google services pre-installed.

Large, high-resolution display ; Fast and reliable fingerprint scanner ; Good sound quality during phone calls ; Good battery life for the price ; Dual-SIM phone

Mediocre photo quality ; Software can be frustrating to deal with ; Buying one outside of Asia takes time and may be costly

There's no denying that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is a great deal in its homeland. For a phone costing the equivalent of $150 to $180, it delivers plenty of value for its money. Importing one to Europe or the U.S. makes less sense, however, and this is...

Xiaomi is back with a vengeance. The company wants to earn back the goodwill of the market and no better device than the Redmi Note 3 to do that. At the launch the company promised timely updates and the Mi 5 launch in April, making the Mi fans jump up...
