Finally, the much anticipated smartphone Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is launched in India, which happens to be the first handset to be manufactured by the brand in India. Moreover, it also happens to be the first ever all metal smartphone from the Chinese brand that comes with a fingerprint scanner. While it is true that the device is one of the most impressive new mobile to come out from the house of Xiaomi, there are several other handsets that offer same or better specifications. So the question arises why should you buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, here are top reasons to consider buying the new handset.
Because lets admit it, we are only interested in a smartphone that offers premium features without burning a hole in our pockets. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is one such smartphone that comes with an aggressively competitive price tag despite offering some of the serious specifications. The brand has priced the handset at INR 9,999 for 16 GB model and INR 11,999 for 32 GB variant. We can safely assume that it is as best as it gets in this price range and makes it one of the most sought after handset in Indian smartphone market.
This all metal smartphone from China's Apple comes with a powerful 1.8 GHz Hexa-core processor that has been coupled with 2 or 3 GB of RAM depending upon the variant. Moreover, the handset is the first to feature latest Snapdragon 650 processor, which has been designed to perform at blinking fast speed. Moreover, it also comes with Xiaomi's own MIUI 7 user interface based on the last generation Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is the first budget smartphone to feature a 16 Megapixel primary snapper on the rear that was only found on Samsung flagship devices till last year. If you take the 16 GB variant of the handset under consideration, Redmi Note 3 has the best ever camera under INR 10,000, which should make it a hot favourite of Indian buyers by default. Moreover, the camera is accompanied with top notch features like Phase Detection Auto Focus that can focus in 0.1 second and dual tone LED flash. The front panel of the device on the other hand offers 5 Megapixels snapper for selfie lovers.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 comes with the same 5.5-inch display as found on its predecessor, which is not a big deal. However, it also happens to be the one of only few to feature full HD resolution viz 1920 x 1080 pixels at this price. The size of the display and resolution result in a pixel density of 403 ppi, which makes it one of the most beautiful display in this segment.
One of the major complain from Indian smartphone users happen to be the poor battery backup of Android smartphones. It makes sense for manufacturers to either plant a larger battery or equip the handset with quick charging feature. Xiaomi has went a step ahead and equipped the newest handset with both quick charging and massive battery. This handset comes equipped with a 4050 mAh battery that only takes 3 hours to charge to 100%. Moreover, the handset maker claims that the handset can easily last 2 days even on heavy usage, which would definitely appeal to Indian users.
If these reasons are not good enough to help you make up your mind regarding Redmi Note 3, nothing else can help you. Xiaomi claims that the more than 8.5 Lakh registrations came through for the first flash sale of the handset and it is a record. If you are still in two minds over the new handset, find someone who has bought it and get the feel for yourself.
