Xiaomi Redmi 3A is brand's reply to Moto E3

Xiaomi has always been known for manufacturing smartphones that offer specs in a price range that is unheard of. The brand did it with Xiaomi MI3 and ever since then has been doing the same thing for a while now. It is now all set to launch the Xiaomi Redmi 3A, which would be an entry level handset with a spec sheet that is not usually found in this price range. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are looking for a decent entry level handset.

Why Should You buy?

Snapdragon Octa-core processor: To be priced below INR 6,000 and come with one of the better processor in the market is just pure bliss. It features an Octa-core Snapdragon 435 chipset with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz and with 2 GB of RAM, performance of the handset should be at par with budget handsets.

Fingerprint Scanner: This handset would be one of the first branded device to come with a 360 degree fingerprint scanner. It means that the device can recognise a fingerprint, whichever way it is placed on the scanner.

VoLTE: Xiaomi Redmi 3A is also one of the very few handsets that come with the VoLTE connectivity out of the box. This feature gives users access to HD call quality as well as instant connectivity if using VoLTE to VoLTE.

Any Alternative?

Motorola Moto G4 Play: While there is nothing that should deter the user from buying Redmi 3A, there are some users who prefer to opt for brands. For those users, recently launched Moto G4 Play is the best bet. It comes with identical specifications and quick charging as well. Moreover, it is already available in India, whereas it is not sure if Xiaomi Redmi 3A will come to India or not.

HD capable means it is volte
prabhu Newbie | 11 Points | 2 Months ago

I brought a " Lenovo Vibe K5 (Gold, Snapdragon 616, VoLTE update)" nomal smart phone and i have 2 days replacement time period. I have doubt some features of this mobile and i am cofuseing for return this mobile or not. problems: VOLTE: -it showing "HD capable" on top of the mobile means it comes after "HD LTE mode" setting,and it also being call from jio sim .OK. -But i want voLTE mode, after "system update " also not coming voLTE . BATTERY: The phone's battery is of 2750 mAh capacity and when i showing Continuous YouTube and Gaming drains the battery very fast. I am new smart phone user and my range is under rs/8000 . If these reasons not so much problem for a smart phone then it's ok. Otherwise tell me which is the better mobile under 8000. so,plz tell how can i resolve from this problem immeidiatly because i have replacement time period only 2 days .

Abhiman Rockstar | 1990 Points | Delhi | 1 Month ago

Hi,

HD calls are what VoLTE is supposed to do so it is perfectly ok. Coming to the battery, a small battery like that is expected to drain fast if you are continuously streaming videos and playing games. If you want a bigger battery, you might have to raise your budget a little and opt for a device that comes with 4000 mAh battery or more.You will find a list of the same here:

booking date
rsn171157 Newbie | 6 Points | 2 Months ago

Is it with FM radio?  When can I make booking?

Abhiman Rockstar | 1990 Points | Delhi | 2 Months ago

Hi,

We cannot anticipate when the handset will be released and only it can be only speculated at this point. For exact price and launch date, we will have to wait for the official announcement from the brand.
We suggest you to take a look at Redmi 3S, which is not only available at same price but is better.

Also, there is no FM radio in this one as known to us so far.
