Redmi Note 3 : Available In All Color Only In Xiaomi Redmi Authorised Dealer Idris Electronics Raipur
The phone’s full-metal exterior lends it a solid feel, and it looks expensive too. The curved edges are really useful in making this big phone easy to hold and use. The bezels to the right and left of the screen are very minimal as well, which keeps the size in check. At 164 g and 8.7 mm, the Redmi Note 3 is lighter and sleeker than many rivals.
Flip it over, and there is a finger-print scanner at the back. We found it to be very accurate and responsive, when it comes to unlocking the phone instantly. It can also be used as a shutter button for clicking pictures and in this mode, it would work with all fingers and not just the one that its been configured with for security.
The 5.5-inch full HD (1920x1080p) display is rather good-looking and reproduces bright colours. Xiaomi is using what it calls the Sunlit Display, which auto-adjusts contrast levels in each pixel in the display so that the fluctuations in ambient light, especially when you are moving from an indoor to outdoors, are handled quicker and without any jarring brightness level changes. The other benefit of this is that by tweaking the lighting of individual pixels, there is less battery consumption, which should benefit just about everyone. The other interesting feature in the display is the reading mode which changes the tint of the screen so the blue light, which is high in low light, won’t hurt your eyes.
The Redmi Note 3 is the first phone in India to run Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 650 hexa-core processor, and has paired that with 3GB of RAM and the Adreno 510 graphics. The powerful troika is not found in any other budget smartphones in the market at present. Multi-tasking, which is not always the strong point of affordable Xiaomi smartphones because of the resource intensive MIUI, works very smoothly in the Redmi Note 3. We did not notice any sluggishness or heating up on the back during FIFA 16 and Need For Speed: No Limits gameplay. All in all, this phone does well under fairly heavy usage, and will not struggle even if you open and leave 7-8 apps running in the background.
Powered by a 4,000mAH battery, the Redmi Note 3 easily lasts over a day and half on a single charge. This is genuinely impressive, and significantly better than any of the big screen budget smartphones as yet.
