Xiaomi Mi3

 

Is China's Android warrior worth getting excited about?

Smart, unusual design, Good value, Bright, colourful and sharp screen

Hard to fully westernise, Iffy custom interface, No 4G, Inconsistent screen backlight

Xiaomi Mi 3 review

 

Chinese cult smash is well worth a risky import buy

Superb power for the price ; Impressive camera ; Good battery life

Only available via import ; Base speaker easily muffled ; Some Chinese text

A unique design and brilliant performance, made all the better by the polished and comprehensive MIUI interface. A budget winner, if you can find one outside of China.

Xiaomi Mi 3 review: A psuedo aluminum-clad 5-inch Android for just $270

 

Xiaomi's flagship Android phone proves it's possible to get high-quality hardware -- including a full-HD screen and quad-core processor -- for a low, low price.

Xiaomi's flagship phone has a beautiful aluminum-magnesium chassis, solid build quality, powerful performance, and a great UI for a relatively low price.

The smartphone lacks LTE connectivity, and a microSD card slot means you'll only ever have 16GB of onboard storage.

Xiaomi's Mi 3 is a showcase of how Chinese phonemakers can create quality hardware without breaking the bank. If you don't need 4G LTE, and you can get hold of it, this is one of the best smartphones you can buy in its price range.

Xiaomi Mi 3 vs Xiaomi Mi 4: Winners and sinners

 

The Xiaomi Mi 3, one of the most popular smartphones in China, is up against its own successor, the Mi 4. Two generations ready to clash: boxes opened, benchmarks loaded, audio on, cameras rolling, batteries charged.

For the record, these two phones are, officially, only available in China and the Asia Pacific. They can be purchased online and shipped to Europe hassle-free though and we think the build and features for the price will get enough people interested.

Xiaomi Mi 3 review: Rebuilding the image of Chinese smartphones

 

The Xiaomu Mi 3 signals the company's intent as far as India goes. Is it a good start?
