As we all know, Xiaomi continues to release budget-friendly phones that technically, looks like not budget-friendly at all, if you’re going to look at their designs and materials. Their newest product, the Redmi 3, isn’t an exception due to its more ‘iPhone look’ compared to their recent product releases.
A remarkably significant upgrade compared to Redmi 2, this metal-reinforced phablet features a 5-inch, 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, 294ppi multi-touch screen with light and proximity sensor features. Insides feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 8939v2 chipset, a higher level compared to Redmi 2’s Snapdragon 410 CPU. Further specifications include an Adreno 405 GPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage capacity which also contains a microSD card slot that can be expanded up to 128GB. This one has a 5MP front-facing shooter and a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash, along with Face Detection, Self-timer, AutoFocus and Geo Tagging features. It is also noticeable that it’s Dual-SIM capable, one of the slots being a hybrid, meaning that you can just use the slot if you don’t want to use it as a microSD card slot to expand your storage.
The most remarkable feature, however, is the battery itself. Being a budget phone, it is very surprising
to know that this one has a 4100mAh one installed compared to Redmi 2’s 2200mAh cell, which clearly states that it’s going to have at least 80 percent more battery juice than the previous one.
