Xiaomi Mi3 Description

Overview

Xiaomi had stayed away from India, waiting for the time when it could stand to gain in the Indian market. When the time was right, it announced the arrival of Mi3, which is its flagship device. The specs that can rival the fabled Google Nexus 5 and the price which is close to that of a Moto G handed Xiaomi its immediate success in the Indian smartphone market.

Performance

Xiaomi knew that just anything won't do for a flagship device and gave the Mi3 a 2.3GHz quad-core processor with 2GB RAM. The phone runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat but Xiaomi has skinned it with the latest version, v5, of its MIUI user interface. There is 16GB internal storage available but no room for expansion has been given. There is a 5-inch touchscreen on the Mi3 which has display resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. A 13 MP camera can be found on the back and a 2-megapixel camera can be found on the front on the smartphone. Finally, a 3050mAh battery has been put in place for all the power needs of the phone, but no ratings are available.

Verdict

Xiaomi made its intentions clear even before entering the Indian smartphone market. It is looking to dominate the smartphone scene here in India. The Mi3 smartphone is a clear effort in that direction and also makes it clear that Xiaomi is serious about its business and will not be in two minds about it. The Mi3 is a way Xiaomi is telling its competitors to take it seriously too.
