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









If the Xiaomi Mi 3 has some Snapdragon 800 awesomeness and a full HD display on board, the Xiaomi Redmi Note isn’t any less when it comes to value for money. It too, creates a new space in the smartphone market for itself and offers some pretty cool specs for its price tag.


I was impressed to look at it. It worked pretty smooth. The MiUi ROM was not laggy at all, even in a budget phone such as this, for which all credit goes to Xiaomi.


The Xiaomi Redmi Note has an octa-core processor onboard, somthing that is a rarity in the budget range. But real delight is using the MiUi ROM on a 5.5-inch display.

Its plastic and glossy form factor is something that might irk you but you will forget all about when you think about the price  tag.
