Xiaomi Redmi Note 3: Best Budget Phone Right Now!

There is no word whether the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 from April 27 onwards will be available in open sale only or will go up for sale via flash sales thereafter.

Both versions of the Redmi Note 3 will be available: the version with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB ROM for Rs 9,999 or the 3 GB/32 GB version for Rs 11,999.

Will you be picking up a Redmi Note 3 or Mi 5? The device also supports 5v/2A Qualcomm technology, charging up to 50% in a time period of an hour and for a complete battery charge, it takes a time period of three hours.

Xiaomi's phone comes with a rear camera of 16 megapixels, front camera of 5 megapixels and a 1080p video resolution, which for a smartphone is a lot, while the Lenovo K5 Note comes with a 15 megapixel rear camera, 8 megapixel front camera and 1080p video resolution. It also ships in with a new Sony IMX298 sensor, which is actually the first camera to feature Deep Trench Isolation (DTI), which is a pixel to pixel isolation technology for a clearer colour separation. While the Mi 5 128GB 4GB RAM version has been announced, it is yet to be released in China, and probably the rest of the world.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 comes with an all-metal unibody design and sports a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080p) IPS display on the front. Under the hood it's rocking a Snapdragon 820 chipset, paired with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 530 GPU.

For optics, the device features a 16MP sensor for the primary camera and a 5MP selfie camera. The rear camera is also equipped with an active optical image stabilizer for better, shake-free photos and videos. 2 (LE), GLONASS, A-GPS, BDS, NFC, IR and a USB Type-C port on the connectivity front. All that said, the entire hardware is packaged within a 129g body which is 7.3mm thick. When tested by trusted gizmo abuser JerryRigEverything on YouTube, the Gorilla Glass 4 material on the Mi 5 holds up well against scratches, but snaps like a thin biscuit when bent.
