Unboxing & Hands On Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 India | MiExplorer India

First I would like to thank Xiaomi & Hugo Barra (Vice President of International for Xiaomi) for giving the opportunity to explore the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 even before it’s release. I’m one of 100 lucky Indian who got this device as part of Mission “MiExplorer”.

Xiaomi the Chinese technology company is about to release Redmi Note 3 in India, Redmi Note 3 release date in India isn’t confirmed yet but chances are company will make some official announcement on 24th February. Xiaomi has been known for making well designed, well build devices with smoother performance than the other devices in respective price slot. Since I have just unboxed the device, it will be too soon to say anything about performance. But the design of and build looks impressive at first sight.

Read review about Redmi Note 3 audio & sound quality

First let’s have a quick view of its specification.

  • 5.74 Inch display with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels & 403 PPI.
  • 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 650 6-core processor, ARM Cortex A72 and Adreno 510 GPU.
  • 2GB/3GB DDR3 RAM with 16GB/32GB internal storage.
  • Dual SIM dual standby with 4G-LTE support. SIM2 slot also supports MicroSD card upto 128GB
  • 16 MegaPixel primary rear camera with phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash.
  • 5 MegaPixel front-facing selfies shooter.
  • Dimension: 150.00 x 76.00 x 8.65 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 164.00 grams.
  • Fingerprint scanner.
  • 4000 mAh lithium polymer battery.
  • MIUI 7 based on Android 5.1.1

The news is Xiaomi  will release Note 3 device in three color variant white, silver and gold. I have received the gold one, which has 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The phone may feel bit heavy but its obvious for devices with full metal body. Fingerprint scanner is placed on the rear side, just below the flash. As I’ve experienced till now, fingerprint is working pretty well.

    • Hi Shubham,
      You should consider your requirement before buying any phone. If some smartphone is performing well in 2GB RAM and fulfilling your need that’s enough.
      But if there are some device which has a better specification and better performance in the same price range you should definitely consider that also. Whatever you buying, it should be the best possible deal in that price range.
      So forget the specification, think about your requirement >> set an approx budget >> shortlist the device >> Compare user reviews >> buy it.

  9. Is this phone screen size 5.74 inch? and 4k video recording on main camera?
    GSMARENA and other sites shown the screen size is 5.5 inch and 1080p recording on main camera.Please clarify.

    • No in default/main camera app there is only three option for video Full HD, HD, and SD. And I have tested with CPU-Z about screen size and its showing 5.74
      and its screen seems a bit larger than OnePlus 2 which has 5.5 but device size is similar/smaller than OnePlus 2.

  10. First of all thanks a lot for your valuable review, does the phone have features like double tap to wake the screen and how about finger print sensor is it can be used for toggling notifications and camera as well.

      • Yup will be following you in facebook as well quite impressed with your reviews and response, waiting for you to upload a full review video in YouTube. Can you please post some of the sample images taken from rear as well as front cameras. Do the phone has manual mode camera option.

  13. Sir, is it worthy to wait for this or i can go for some other already available one? As my primary concern is the heating after playing games and video and lastly long hours of talk…..plz help me in this regards that is it have over-heating i.e heats more than 40 degree. Please mail me at [email protected]. Egarly waiting for your reply.
    Thanking you….

  14. Bro Iam waiting nearly two months pls tel me the correct relese date because frns sajjus for les co tv mobile brand…..but Iam not interest …… I want redme note3…..

  15. Does the included charger in box support Qualcomm quick charge(2.0 and 3.0). How long does it take to charge 0 to 100%.

    Just another quick question does the HEVC videos run on HW+ on MX Player or SW decoder? And if HW+
    1.) Was the video in 1080p with high video bitrate(1500 to 2500 kbps)
    2.) was there any significant heating of the phone
    3.) Was there any rapid loss of battery charge(1% or more battery charge for every 2 or 3 mins of HEVC video)
    Changing the battery graph to numerical from phone settings can help in testing the last one.

    • मोबाईल का परफार्मेस कैसा है भाई जी क़पया बताये कैमरा कवालिटी कैसी है बैटरी बैक र्कैसा है प्रोसेसर तेज है कि नही लूुक कैसा है क़पया मुझे बताये मेरा इमेल आइडी [email protected]

  17. Recharge hone keliye kitna time lagta hai fast charge support hai kya or dual sim active plus micro SD card support karta hai kya…?

  18. As far as I know it could be launched around 10k or slightly more but it certainly not gonna be launched over 10k price tag (as Gionee iz well known for offering feature loaded fones at very affordable prices).

  19. I have 3 questions.

    1. Which is the most attractive colour varient..??

    2. How its camera in all aspect.. i.e. In low light, indoor, night, and outdoor, without flash… ETc. Can i get a camera comparison from Mi4i.???

    3. How is its performance in multi-tasking..?? When u play heavy game besides some background applications.. Does it lag..?? Hey does it heat..??

    Uff!! So many questions.. Hope u give all answers..
    THANK U…!!

    • 1. Its depend upon your choices and preference, I have got the gold color and it seems very premium & I’m liking it.
      2. Need few more time to explore camera in all aspects.
      3. Performance is buttery smooth, no any lagging issues till now and yeah its heating, not too much but still I can feel it while playing long videos like continuous 15-20 minutes video playback. The positive side is its calling back very fast.

    • I have downloaded and played the video it worked fine with the default video player but in MX video was running fine but there wasn’t any sound so I’ve installed on code which can be downloaded from here. Now its working perfectly fine without any lags..

      Thanks

  20. Awaiting your candid review nishant…pl check multitasking capability,heat while gaming and regular usage,ram loading,camera performance etc.,

  21. The processor should be clocked at 1.8ghz, and screen size is 5.5inches, use any other app and re confirm, also upload benchmark scores, and most importantly what is internal memory and ram??

  22. I want to buy a Redmi phone..& my budget is 10K & i needed a good gaming & also good camera quality ..which phone u suggested for me?

  23. Thank you Nishant …..
    And Lenovo K4 Note Or Xiaomi Redmi note 3 Mai se Kosa Phone Lu Yaar plzzz Inform …
    And Apko External SD option Mila ….And camera Qualti kesi hai ……
    Mai Konsa mobile Lu …plzzz Answer My Questions ….bhai Nishant .. and Cong. Bhai

    • feature and look wise Redmi Note 3 will be the better option but it will depend on the price tag. my suggestion is to wait for the until the release of Redmi Note 3, If it will come in your budget you can buy this one.

      For better battery, camera, design and yeah the best part MiUI.

    • Just tested and yeah it is heating. I have felt too much heat at the rear side near fingerprint scanner. But the good part is after 2-3 minutes it is again normal now. Currently, it has only Xiaomi’s default apps + 4-5 extra apps. I”ll check again after installing all apps.

        • And one more is that many sites say that phone is clocked at 1.4GHz X 4 A53 cores and 1.8Ghz X 2 A72 cores so what it is actually I am bit confused!!!!

          • In about phone it saying CPU: Hexa-core max 1.8GHz and I have shared the CPU-Z screenshot so can’t tell the actual story behind this until Xiaomi will release technical details official.

  24. can you play x265 codec videos on HW+ settings on MX Player? Do it for both 720p and 1080p to see if their is any slow down of video playback or cpu over heating.

  25. you r great… baki explorer sob fal2 jin jin ko mobile mila..they r not sharing anything. jaise they hv gotten the whole mi india shares…. keep us updating … lol. god bless u for ur mission…

  26. have u posted video on YouTube…….if u haven’t plzz do it….and one more thing ….plzzz do a video on cpu-z ……plzzzz……
