Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime Dhanteras Offer Today In Xiaomi Authorised Dealer Idris Electronics Raipur
Not long ago, Xiaomi sized-up the Redmi Note 3 to make the gigantic Mi Max. Now, it just shrunk the Redmi Note 3 down to make the Redmi 3S Prime. The Redmi 3S Prime is simply the Redmi Note 3, only scaled down to fit the Redmi 2 Prime’s cute and comfy form factor. 5-inch phones are hard to come by these days. The Redmi 3S Prime belongs to that rare category of smartphones. And to me, that’s a huge thing. You see, I just love 4.7-5-inch phones. They just have the right size. The Redmi 3S Prime, as expected, feels right in the hands. It’s not as small as last year’s Redmi 2 Prime (which was 4.7-inch) and yet not as phablet-sized as the Redmi Note 3 (which is 5.5-inch).
Size is not the only “big” highlight of Xiaomi’s new ultra-budget smartphone. The Redmi 3S Prime boasts of a full-metal body: a first for any smartphone in and around this product category. The top and bottom ends are of course plastic with brushed metal finish and have a slightly different hue as compared to the rest of the body, but given its low price, I think you should give it the benefit of doubt. An all-metal smartphone at just under Rs 9,000 was a sight for soar eyes, until now.
The Redmi 3S Prime weighs in at just over 140 grams, which isn’t quite that much when you consider the fact that it’s housing a 4,100mAh battery inside. What is remarkable here is that even though it crams in such a ridiculously huge battery inside, the phone feels practically the same no matter how you hold it. An even distribution of weight throughout its body, coupled with a 5-inch form factor ensures the Redmi 3S Prime isn’t as slippery as some of the other metal-clad smartphones in the market, including the Redmi Note 3. But it is a metal smartphone, after all. Things are bound to get a little slippery every now and then.
On the front, a chrome strip helps a great deal in balancing the equation, enhancing grip. So much so that the Redmi 3S Prime is easily the most ergonomic all-metal smartphones at its price point right now. The power button and the volume rocker are on the right, while the dualSIM hybrid card slot lies on the left. The phone’s speaker vent is located on the rear lower end.
The Redmi 3S Prime comes with a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display with a 720×1280 pixels resolution which roughly translates to 294ppi pixel density. Brightness levels are just about adequate and adaptive brightness works as it should.
The Redmi 3S Prime is powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processer coupled with Adreno 505 GPU and 3GB of RAM. It comes with 32GB of internal memory which is further expandable by up to 128GB via a microSD hybrid card slot. The dualSIM phone supports 4G LTE (VoLTE-ready) and USB OTG. There’s no NFC though.
The Redmi 3S Prime sports a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, Phase-Detect Autofocus along with an LED flash. On the front you get a 5-megapixel snapper. Honestly, none of the new-age Xiaomi phones — Mi 5, Redmi Note 3 — have really impressed as far as camera performance is concerned. They’ve been just about average.
