Finally, we’ve got to play with Xiaomi Mi3, the phone we’ve been hearing about so much in the past few months.
As you may know, Xiaomi has been growing like crazy, doubling its sales from year to year. Moreover, it has managed to attract Google’s very own Hugo Barra, who will undoubtedly help the firm expand to markets all around the world.
First thing we should say is that Mi3 is an awesome product by any stretch of imagination. Heck, this is arguably one of the BEST LOOKING phones I’ve ever used. You got that right – the Mi3 is that great!
It comes with top-notch specs that include a fast quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 5-inch full HD screen, 13-megapixel camera with Sony-made sensor, 16 or 64 GB of internal storage, and so on and on. The model we’ve got for review gets its power from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 rather than NVIDIA Tegra 4, which is used in the TD-SCDMA variant offered by China Mobile. It lacks 4G LTE connectivity support but that should come in an updated model released later in the year. If you can live with HSPA+ speeds, you can already grab this unit from Xiaomi World which was kind enough to give us the unit we’re reviewing here. Otherwise, you can wait for another month or so.
Let’s proceed with our review, shall we?
UPDATE: Xiaomi World now offers 64GB Snapdragon 800 Mi3!
