Series redmi always bread and butter Xiaomi. Combining good design, features, and reasonable performance at a very attractive price, redmi series has been redefined for a lot of what a good budget smartphone should be like.
The latest in this series is redmi Note 3. This phone is the successor redmi Note 2 last year and increase to some aspects such as the metal body, a fingerprint sensor, a brand new chipset, and a bigger battery. This is especially increased since redmi origin Note Prime, which will be a big problem for people in India who never got redmi Note 2.
Today, the company will launch redmi Note 3 in India. And even though we already have a smartphone to be revised, it is based on MediaTek chipset. The new release comes with a Snapdragon 650 and because we have the opportunity to play with him for the last days, we will be happy to share our responses.

The redmi Note 3 is the first mobile phone with metal body redmi. Most bodies are made of aluminum, with plastic on the top and bottom and the glass on the front. This gives the phone a real taste of the premium, which is rather remarkable because this is still the redmi.
The following redmi Note 3 Xiaomi minimalist design language. The front is dominated by a screen with somewhat narrow bezels that does not occupy too much space your visual.
Above the display is the earpiece, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, front facing camera, and a notification LED that can only be seen when illuminated. Below the display is a backlit navigation controls. Considering how many phones these days dropping backlighting today, it is good to see Xiaomi did not subject him stupid charge.
This front is framed by an excess of a thin chrome finish is painted in the same shade as the rest of the phone. From there, the sides curve inward, giving a sense of mobile phones are becoming thinner than that.
On the right is the power button and volume buttons with chamfered edges polished, everything is fine and works well, too.
On the other side is a tray that holds whether the two SIM cards (mini + nano) or the SIM card and the microSD card. tray sits perfectly flush with the body and for a color that corresponds to the entire phone, something that some companies really struggled with. At the top is the headphone jack, microphone middle, and an infrared sensor. At the bottom is a microUSB port and the main microphone.
On the back, we see 16-megapixel camera lens with LED flash so that on a dual two-tone below. Below that is a fingerprint sensor. The cutout for the camera and the fingerprint sensor is exactly the same size and have a shiny, excess oblique. Below is a speaker with a small lip that raises the bottom so that the speaker is not blocked completely. Although he was better from behind a really average, the speaker does not lose some of the benefits when the phone was kept behind. Not to mention the fact that the back is probably the worst place to put speakers.
Physically, the phone is great, considering it has a screen of 5.5 inches. Having said that, he is not very big, and they form good at making it feel smaller than it. Build quality, fit and finish is top-notch, however, and it is very easy to forget this is not a luxury smartphone. We appreciate the way the metal and plastic parts are worth, and all-around fine detailing. You can tell some effort goes into the design of mobile phones, despite the low price point.
The redmi Note 3 has a 1920 x 1080 resolution 5.5-inch LCD. The display has several modes you can set it to. There's Standards mode, then Improved contrast, which improves the color and adjust the contrast of the screen based on the content displayed, and auto contrast, which adjusts the dynamic range of the display based on ambient light, making parts darker the picture brighter under bright light to make them more visible without increasing backlight. You can also adjust the color temperature to set it up to standard, heat, or cold.
When set to white balance and contrast Standard mode, the screen in Note 3 redmi not good. The colors are a bit muted and white balance a little cold but other than that he is a good screen to look at, with good sharpness, brightness, contrast, viewing angle, and the sight of sunlight. The screen can also get really dim, to the point where you have to save a little above minimum brightness even in a dark room. Overall, redmi Note 3 has a view that is quite good, and easily one of the best you can get in this price range.
The redmi Note 3 is the first phone to launch with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC. It also packs in 2GB or 3GB of RAM, depending on whether you go for the 16GB or 32GB models. We received a model of 3GB / 32GB.
There is a microSD slot, as mentioned earlier, you should need more storage, but then you would release one SIM slot.
This phone has LTE support on both SIM slot (band 3, 5, 40, 41 + Volte), together with Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.1, and also the IR blaster to control home appliances. No NFC, however, and the phone still uses a microUSB connector (not that we protested).
The redmi Note 3 Xiaomi phone is also the first with a fingerprint sensor. The company claims it can unlock your phone in 0.3 seconds, which checks out but only if the screen again turned on. If you wake up the phone, and it takes twice the time, which is still pretty good but not as blazing fast as some other phones on the market (which is on the Lenovo Vibe P1, for example, is crazy fast).
In software, running on MIUI phone 7 on top of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. This software will be commonplace to anyone who has used a previous MIUI. For those who do not have, he is a little tangle between Android and iOS design. The result is an attractive UI, which, for the most part, is user friendly, has more than enough features, and function properly.
Among the features are good including theme support, manager of the truth, the ability to paralyze autostart for select applications, built in the black list for calls and messages, the application of smart messages that automatically groups of SMS notification together and highlight the OTP code, the ability to use the fingerprint sensor finger to key applications, child mode, hidden folders, one-handed mode, the ability to move and uninstall in the group, and much more.
Things are not so interesting about MIUI including less than ideal system of notification, border square ugly about the application icon instead of square, use the menu key is obsolete in some applications default, can not quickly adjust the media or the number of alarms without digging into the settings and search options to the Settings app. UI also shows a direct disregard Google Material Design, and prefer to do things its own way.
To be honest, no criticism is very bad and mostly pale in the face of all the things he got right. We just want Xiaomi faster to update the base version of Android, because that is one area where the company has traditionally lagged in doom.
Note: we have run a research unit building MIUI 2.6.18 Beta 7. All of the views that were created after the collection is based on this and several things that can be changed by building stable at the retail unit.
As the first 650 Snapdragon devices in the market, we wonder about the performance in Note 3 redmi will be like. Fortunately, he was simply superb.
Snapdragon 650 chip offers hexa-core processor with Cortex-A72 at 2x and 4x 1.8GHz Cortex-A53 at 1.4GHz. The MediaTek Helio X10 has 8x Cortex-A53 at 2.0GHz. Indeed, the performance of multi-core six-core CPU, although two of them (Cortex-A72) is somewhat capable, behind the raw power eight-core processor.
Fortunately, the single core performance was doubled, which is really important for the OS smoothly and easy task switching. In fact, core Cortex-A72 is twice as capable as the Cortex-A53 main solution.
In terms of common usage, the phone performed admirably. Opening and closing applications quickly, smoothly scrolling, animation is fluid, and everything just seems to work as it should. CPU at 650 seems to be good so that the task of daily use and the OS seems to be optimized for it.
We decided to try a variety of our usual game on the line. Again, Adreno 510 GPU is very well done with a resolution of 1080p phone, and all of the games we tried to run properly.
The Adreno 510 turned out, in fact, two times better than the PowerVR G6200 models that MediaTek. Here are the benchmark results to prove it.
Fortunately, while the Adreno 510 maybe sooner, you do not need to worry - no one of redmi Note 3 models can not control well in real life.
AnTuTu test compound and BaseMark OS II 2.0 also puts redmi Note 3 powered by Snapdragon 650 before you MediaTek, but also ahead of all competitors.

Overall, we found the performance Snapdragon 650 to be much higher than the ubiquitous Snapdragon 600 chipset series and is actually rather close to the Snapdragon 808.
For thermal performance, both Qualcomm and Xiaomi have run a good job to keep the temperature in the revision. Often used at all there is no significant difference in the temperature of the phone. Although when gambling, the rear gets a bit hot, but it was never intrusive. It is possible to get warm so the phone if you crank the screen brightness all the way so that when playing 3D games weight, but it is a rather unlikely scenario, and in the use of public telephone and game experience that never gets quite warm.
Transition teeth, call quality and network performance is also quite good, with a cell phone to an LTE network even in places where other phones that would normally be surrendered. The transition from 3G to 4G is also fast after the call ends, which is important in markets like India that no longer has Volte. One thing to note, however, is that the ears are a bit cramped, and if it is not right position in front of the ear sound falls drastically.
Multimedia performance was also honored. This phone supports a variety of formats out of the box, including AC3 audio codec for video. The phone has an internal video player but must be achieved either through the hall or the file manager.
The headphone output is strong and clear but the loudspeaker is not and position to the back also makes it sound worse.
The redmi Note 3 has a 16 megapixel camera on the back with the phase detection autofocus, aperture F2.0, two-tone dual LED flash and 1080p video. Inside is a 5 megapixel sensor with F2.0 aperture.
Rear camera image quality is rather underwhelming. Image has a fair bit of noise in them, which is coupled with over-sharpening making them unpleasant to see when zoomed right in.
the dynamic range of the camera often too humid and the final blow. Built-in HDR mode only help improve the shadows but did nothing for the main event, so you just end up with a brighter image overall. There was also a significant purple periphery around high contrast areas. The colors are good, however, and the overall detail, while not particularly need to be addressed, fine. Focusing is fast but rather often tend to miss the mark, which is usually hard to tell on the screen when you shoot but something you see later when discovered on the cover image up.
Video is not great either. This phone seems to video upscaling lower resolution, which can be seen clearly when recording still subjects, as you can see the jagged edges of low resolution files are played at a higher resolution. Colors also look flat in video and dynamic range is more severe than in the photos.
Thus, the overall quality of the camera on redmi Note 3 is not great and probably the weakest aspect of the phone.
The redmi Note 3 has 4,050mAh battery. The battery is not removable, but we did not think that would be a major issue with this phone. The redmi Note 3 consistently returned excellent battery figures in our tests, with time on the screen 6-7 hours every day. This phone has a mode battery saver sorts that is enabled by default, which is cutting back its location and access network applications background, but we did not see any adverse effects, such as the application does not update in the background, and others when using the phone, so we decided to leave.
Please note that our test is with a single SIM card, as the research unit we have a problem that prevents using two SIM cards with him.
The redmi Note 3 has the first generation that supports Quick Cost so 5V 2A charger. This phone takes one hour to reach 50% battery than 1% and about two and a half hours to reach 100% of the 1%. We want Xiaomi has included Quick Cost 2.0 or any other form of charging as fast as the cost price for a rather slow.
Snapdragon variant redmi Note 3 is being launched at a price point at $ 148 USD (INR 9999) for the 16GB model and $ 178 (INR 11.999) for the 32GB model, in India.
At that price, the phone represents exceptional value for money. Although you leave the price aside for a second, redmi Note 3 has a great combination of design and build quality, a good display, great performance, fingerprint sensors, and batteries are brilliant. Add to that the incredible price, and it makes it easier to overlook some flaws, such as less than brilliant camera, obsolete version of Android, and the lack of proper fast charging, which are deal breakers to start. At this price, it is easily the best phone in its price range.
