Xiaomi's Redmi Note 3 hits the right notes (review)


Xiaomi continues its run of fantastic phones with a great budget Android you'll pine for.

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.

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


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 Redmi Note 3 review: the best budget phablet in SA?


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is only R800 more expensive than the Note 2, but you get a better processor and a fast fingerprint scanner for the price.

At R3799, the Redmi Note 3 represents excellent value for money, owing to a fast processor, solid display and long battery life in general. Unfortunately, compromises will always be made at this point, namely in the form of a good but not great main...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 review: The real flagship killer?


Xiaomi's new Redmi Note 3 shares many of the specs and features of premium flagship smartphones: 5.5-inch Full HD display, lightning fast fingerprint scanner, full-metal build, 3GB RAM, and a huge 4,000mAh battery. All this for just S$299? Sounds too...

Great design and handling ; Fast fingerprint sensor ; Smooth performance ; Long battery life

Camera performance could have been better ; Expandable by only 32GB ; MIUI 7 can be a resource hogger

Excellent design and build quality ; Impressive battery life ; Very good performance ; Great software experience ; Fast and accurate fingerprint reader ; Includes an IR blaster for controlling household appliances ; Great sunlight readability ;...

No U.S. availability ; Camera is still about average for the price ; Display is lacking a bit in contrast and saturation

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 review: midrange goes premium


The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is a significant evolution for one of Xiaomi's most important devices. It's much more elegant than previous generations of the phone, with a smooth aluminum finish, and a design philosophy that's sure to appeal to customers who...

Design ; Fingerprint sensor ; Battery ; Screen ; Sound

Camera ; Slightly outdated software ; Lacks 4G LTE 800 MHz

This new generation of Redmi Note loses the microSD card and the removable battery, but greatly improves on design and generously increases battery size, compared with the Note 2. It’s a nicely balanced device that makes a few sacrifices in exchange...

Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 review: Performs in every department, except with low light photography - Tech2


Xiaomi has started 2016 with the release of its Redmi Note 3, a phone that was launched in China last year. The major difference being that the Redmi Note 3 in India will be housing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chipset whereas the one in China was...

Xiaomi has clearly delivered enough goods with the Redmi Note 3 for us to recommend it. While it comes in two variants – Rs 9,999 (for 2GB RAM/16GB ROM) and Rs 11,999 (for 3GB RAM/32GB ROM) – we would recommend the latter as it gives you more room to...
