Xiaomi makes a grand entry in entry-level handset segment

The Chinese handset maker, Xiaomi launched the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 in Indian handset market and blew away the competition. Recently, the brand launched a new device called Redmi 3 in China, which it has denied that will not be launched in India. However, now the handset maker is bringing the next generation of Xiaomi Redmi 3S to the country. This device is scheduled to be launched in India soon and cannot see the logic to launch it when there already is Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. However, here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are looking for it.

Why Should You buy?

Magnesium alloy unibody: This is the first handset from the Chinese brand that comes with the metal body under INR 8,000. Xiaomi has launched the handset with the Magnesium alloy metal body, which feels quite good in one's hand.

Fingerprint scanner: This is also one of the fewer handsets in this price category that comes with the fingerprint scanner on the rear panel. The presence of this scanner makes it a must have device as it is a futureproof handset.

Why Should You Not buy?

Almost identical to Redmi Note 3: This handset is almost identical to the Redmi Note 3, which is available for a slight stretch in the budget. If you can increase your budget abit, it would get you a 16 Megapixels camera, bigger battery as well as display.

Any Alternative?

Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus: When it comes to the alternatives of this device, Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus is the first device that comes to the mind. This handset matches Redmi 3S spec by spec except for the faster processor. A must have alternative if somehow you find yourself not liking the device.

HANGS
bo62x Newbie | 6 Points | 4 Months ago

DOES HANGS & HEATS

Aman Rockstar | 5147 Points | Delhi | 4 Months ago

Xiaomi Redmi 3s comes with a good set of specifications in Rs 6999.

Usually, smartphones do hang on excessive usage and not updating apps and not clearing cache memory.

If you use your mobile moderately, then you won't face any hang issue.

Heating issue will occur while charging, playing heavy games, using camera for 10-15 min
