We all know that Xiaomi is very famous for selling large number of smart phones on the release date. This is the third flagship smart phone that Xiaomi is releasing which is named as MI 3. The MI 3 is a beast if we look at the specs (hoofffff) and that too for such a price tag. Are they joking??? No they are not, given the price MI3 gives back too much for the user to play with. And keeping Indian customer in mind, i believe this is a game changer.

Now coming to its features, plus points (i know price is a plus) and draw backs. We have a dragon here for sure. Just kidding.

Performance:
We have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 8274AB 2.3GHz processor, Adreno 330 450MHz GPU, 2GB LPDDR3 RAM, and eMMC 4.5 flash memory. This means we have a very fast processor running in Mi3 so all our favourite games and apps will run at blazing speeds. Also LPDDR3 is 50 percent faster than its predecessor and consumes 20 percent less power. Thus adding to speed of the device and more lag free operations

Display:
The display comes with 5-inch IPS display which is Full HD at 16:9. Thus it would give crisp details in 1080p HD video or rich textures in 3D game environments. Your photos look more vibrant in your hands now. The screen also comes with anti-glare coating giving you high screen readability.

The IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology delivers stunning colour consistency around different viewing angles.



Camera:
Mi3 comes with 13MP camera at the back and 2MP camera at the front. The built-in Phillips dual-LED flash quickly adds the perfect lighting to make your subjects beautiful. Never miss another photo opportunity again. Mi3 will produce amazing photos in low light with a super-large Exmor sensor and an f/2.2 aperture by allowing 30% more light into the sensor.

Battery:
It is said the specification by Xiaomi that Mi3 would last for 500 hours of standby time, 50 hours of music playback, 25 hours of talk time, 21 hours of 3G Internet use. Mi3 has a 3050mAh lithium-ion battery.

Connectivity:
Mi3 comes with a Dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz/5Ghz) gives you the room to go wireless and still enjoy high speed Internet access. Supports 3G(WCDMA) and 2G(GSM) networks. NFC (Near Field Communication) gives you the contact less freedom to augment your digital lifestyle.

Mi 3 is 8.1mm thin, 145 grams light, and houses an aluminum-magnesium alloy frame, coated with 3 layers of thermal graphite.

Conclusion:
Mi3 is a nice look phone which is slim and has a 5" display. Given the price of 13999 and specification of the mobile phone, i would prefer to buy this phone and enjoy its fluid performance. Not to forgot the features that we get in this phone for Rs. 13999 is equivalent flagship phones manufactured by Sony, Google, Samsung. Note Moto G which cost around the same price is no way near the specs of this phone.

But only problem which i see is with the availability of service centers in your home town. There may be service centers in big cities but small town customers have to travel to cities if they have any issues. So if this is not a concern for you , then just click the buy link and order your Mi3 today....
