Check out our hands-on images and little snippets of our opinions on the handset from the short time we had with it.







The Xiaomi Mi 3 is eons ahead of every other phone in its price range in terms of specs. But, that doesn’t mean that the company has just loaded it with amazing hardware and forgotten all about the design. It looks elegant and sits pretty cool. You will be excited to take it out, anywhere you want. I was amazed at the full HD display and found the handset a pleasure to hold.


The only doubt that I have about it though is that the back of the handset might be a little scratchy.

The Xiaomi Mi 3 looks and feels amazing, If you are sceptic about the Xiaomi MiUi ROM, don’t be. It works smoothly and has a lot to offer. The ROM functioned well on the Xiaomi Mi 3.


The Xiaomi Mi 3 is going to give every other phone priced till 25K a run for its money. It is going to be a welcome surprise in every regard for the people lucky enough to own it.


The Xiaomi Mi 3 comes with a 13-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash. In the short time I had with it, I was totally impressed with what it offered.
