Xiaomi Mi 3 Review

Xiaomi Mi3 is a well designed and looks somewhat similar to nokia lumia phones. Mi3 has got 5 inch IPS display with nice viewing angle. Mi3 at first glance come across nice phone which is well built and as usual, is loaded with features.

With the advent of apps, most of the phones are capable of getting most of the features as most of the features available through apps in google market place or itunes in case of apple.

Xiaomi Mi3 is no exception, buts its built & inbuilt features separate it from the herd and the phone is significantly better than others in its class.

Mi 3’s 8.1mm body uses a magnesium alloy frame which is coated in three layers of thermal graphite film which is usually not seen with other handset in this segment.

Xiaomi uses MIUI V5 which is its own customization of android to offer better feature and performance.

Xiaomi offer cloud services to its cell phone users therefore it is fairly easy for its users to store their messages, photots, music, videos etc on xiaomi’s cloud. In fact, you can also use this service to locate it when lost.

13 megapixel rear cameras deliver optimum result for its class. Although overall phone looks good and deliver good performance vis-à-vis it’s pricing but as the brand itself is new to India, it is not yet sure how it will fair in Indian market.

Xiaomi Mi3 is being exlusively available on Flipkart at Rs.13,999. As far as pricing goes, its fits the bill and you get more than you pay for. As mentioned earlier in this review, Mi3 is a good phone with good design, camera and builts.
