Its been a long time on MS, glad that this product is forcing me to write a review on Mouthshut.

Before writing this review let me speak some words, I have come across so many people complaining about their mobiles hanging, restarting, heating, no call quality etc etc. my question is that when you buy a mobile y do you blindly follow others? "usne liya tho maine bhi liya"

There are so many factors to consider while buying a mobile. most of us go with a mid range mobile(15, 000 or 20, 000) rupees. trust me guys top brand samsung provide sh*t to consumers at this price.(Grand, Quattro, Mega). Apple doesnt provide anything at this price. may be iPhone 4 but not worth in this genX.

People usually choose Brand coz of Warranty, they provide 1 year of warranty in which 90% of consumers wont face any problems in that 1 year. in my opinion choosing a top brand is not a wise option. Wise option would be doing a better research which processor, which ram, which gpu, what screen is being used in the mobile that im going to buy.

all brands do assemble the internal parts of mobile, so no brand is different when you think from Hardware point of view. so the question is regarding software! let me explain this too.

the stock android provided by Google are optimised and customised by all Vendors. touchwiz for samsung, LG gui for LG, HTC Sense for HTC. some vendors like micromax & karbonn use the same google stock operating system. to know which vendor is providing the best user interface, TEST TEST TEST that device until you satisfy. ask all your friends who uses other brands whether it hangs after installing more than 40/50 apps or heats up when you play HD games.

all in all finally its your preference, and I say xiaomi mi3 is best device as per today standards. I will list out the reasons y.

  1. 2013 flagship processor(Snapdragon 800) Quad Core 2.3ghz  -(same as Nexus 5 & LG G2)

  2. 2 GB RAM

  3. 5" IPS LCD(not TFT)

  4. 1080 p Resolution(Full HD)

  5. 16 GB for all data( not like other vendors to restrict you at 4/8 gb)

  6. 13 Mega Pixel Stunning Camera( Better than Nexus 5)

  7. Adreno 330 GPU Graphics

  8. Latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat(Buttery Smooth)

Compare to this Mobile Samsung Galaxy S4 & HTC One M7 are Outdated which are priced 29 & 32 respectively.

Compare to this Mobile LG Nexus 5 & LG G2 share same specs which are priced at 28 & 31 respectively.

Xiaomi Mi 3 is Priced at 13, 999 Rupees. This hardware can run all apps and games for the next two years too. the customized software was much better than some vendors. beautiful, elegant UI and was smooth too.

You may doubt that why they are giving at a cheap price, there may be many reasons but I can guess that the real reason is that to establish Xiaomi Brand in India. in my guess this is a steal deal for all mobile lovers.

some may worry about the service centers, flipkart has listed all the service centers in India. this is a very good product at this price range, but still wait guys let me list out its Cons.

Very Very Slippery,

Heated up a bit when I played Asphalt 8

but when we compare the pros with the cons at this price this Gadget is a steal:)
