The phone that has everyone talking and scrambling about to try and get their hands on one Quick look at Specs and Initial Impressions Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 8274AB 2.3GHz processor Adreno 330 450MHz GPU 2GB LPDDR3 RAM 5 inch 1080P Screen 13 MP Front camera Memory Slot :None Variants :16/64gb Sensors :Accelerometer, proximity, compass, barometer Battery :3050 mAH Headphones :No Headphones provided Indian version comes with Andriod 4.4.3 NO LTE i.e 4G Un-boxing Video with pictures of what comes in the box Design : Design does seems to be pretty similar to Nokia Lumia Series .In fact, I felt phone is pretty huge in comparison to other phones ,which utilizes 5inch screen. Edges are not curved/round, so it is slightly uncomfortable in hand, but one can get use to it over a period of time. Back is smooth ,and made of magnesium (Though feels like high end plastic though). Its pretty thin i.e only 8.1 mm Software, User Interface and Screen shots: This is one of the main reasons why Xiaomi is touted as Apple of China .Mi3 runs on MIUI 5 based on Andriod 4.4.3. Gives user a feeling of cross between Andriod and ios (Icons are very similar to Apple iOS, so people who don't like the interface of iPhone won't like MIUI much either. Overall, during my initial testing, I felt MIUI eats up a lot of RAM on its own that comes to about 700 to 800 MB. Though the phone still feels pretty smooth, and you never feel short of RAM in daily usage. Theme Based on India Yep, you see the Taj and it's India. Screen/Display: One of the stand out features of MI3 is its screen. It uses a Sharp IPS display that is 1080p (441 ppi) 5 inch display, which is bright, vibrant and crisp. Only downside is you will find it hard to view in bright sunlight even with brightness level set to maximum. Camera and pictures: Mi3 uses a 13.1 MP sony sensor. The in-built camera software layout is pretty simple (One can access advanced options like ISO, Shutter speed by switching off simple mode setting). Autofocus is sluggish in my opinion. Picture quality is decent (Contrast out of the camera) HDR mode is okay. In fact it adds a lot of saturation than dynamic range to the picture. Overall, picture quality is pretty decent for a phone priced in this range. Front uses 2MP camera ,which is pretty poor. Sample Images:Panorama HDR mode Normal Mode /Auto mode Black and White Effect one can get in pictures using the built in filter Check the higher resolution images here - Xiaomi MI3 images - an album on Flickr Call Quality: The voice quality is good, but for some reason I still like my Motorola Defy XT voice quality over this phone. This does not mean it is bad, but maybe I need some time to get used to this phone a bit more. Antutu Score Mi3 gets an impressive 43025 score And to sum it up - Pro's Sleek AWESOME IPS HD screen Unbeatable price Decent Camera MIUI with decent amount of themes . Rooting kit /developer version available via Xiaomi forums / website (no warranty is void for rooting your device) Cons Slightly bigger in comparison to other 5inch sized phones . Availability MIUI eats up lot of ram and Phone is not for those who like stock android experience Being a new brand in India, Service is yet to be tested. After sales service or A.S.S will determine how value for money Xiaomi devices are for cellphone users.
