After the success of Xiaomi Mi 4i last year, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is now in the limelight. The device was recently launched in India and will soon go on sale on March 9. The company is betting a lot on the device, and claims that it is one of the best in the price segment. This article focuses upon the design, hardware and software of the device and how it performs.
Design and Display
Redmi Note 3 is touted as the first all-metal device in the Xiaomi’s Note series. Although, it does not look so sleek, it is light compared to its thickness. As for the edges, they look curvy adding soft features. The volume and power buttons are positioned on the right side of the device, while there is a SIM slot placed on the left side.
The device features a 5.5-inch full HD display with 1080×1920 pixels resolution. The screen is integrated with reading mode that puts lesser strains on the eyes even in low-light conditions. It is great watching movies and playing video games on the phone’s screen that offers wide viewing angles with greater sharpness in display quality.
The Xioami Redmi Note 3 is available in two variants- 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage and 2GB RAM/16GB internal storage. It is fuelled by a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor.
Running on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, the Redmi Note 3 has a MI UI 7 build. There is an in-built antivirus support to help keep your data secure. Meanwhile, all apps on the phone are positioned on the homescreen.
While the phone’s rear shooter is a 16MP camera sensor, the front shooter is 5MP. You won’t find any problem clicking bright images during day time, but during night, it is difficult to capture good shots owing to lack of features, reports Times of India.
The Indian Express notes that the Redmi Note 3 has a massive 4000mAH battery, which can keep the phone up for several hours without any disruption. As for the price, the 16GB variants is priced at Rs9,999 (approx. US$149) and the 32GB variants is priced at Rs. 11,999 (approx. US$178).
It can be concluded that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is a decently priced model that offers good value for money. It has a very big battery, the most vivid display and one of the best MIUI interfaces.
