This is an awesome phone. I would recommend this to people who are looking for nexus like phones. Please don't be backed since this is a Chinese company. I loved the MIUI interface and the way it looks. It is fast and smooth. Does not lag a bit and played FIFA and Asphalt 8. Camera works good in both low light and normal light. Battery stays for more than two days for normal use and stays one and half days if heavy usage The only thing I would like them to add was HDR like in Sony I would give it a four and a half star

Great Product Exceptional Pricing
By Sudhindra Sen | 22 Aug 2014 | 22 Aug 2014
Mi3 is quite a superb product and I am using this phone from last 15 days. Initially if you look at the phone looks like a premium product ,if you don't know about this brand you may think that this is a product of top companies like sony, lg, or htc. The back of the phone has some Chinese logo and rear camera and the front has small logo of mi. The phone looks stunning and you may be confused that it is made up of metal. Now we come on performance of this phone 1)Camera Quality- The camera quality on default settings is not upto the level of 13mp phones of brands like sony and htc but after some adjustment in camera settings I have seen a impressive improvement in the quality of the pictures clicked, therefore my suggestion is to change the settings of camera before using it. 2)Multi Functioning-There is never a lag on using multiple apps at a time. All the apps played by me worked smooth as ever. 3)High Quality Videos Playback- This is era in which nobody want to have low quality videos in their storage. High Quality videos played on phone looks superb on its great screen.(441 ppi) 4)User Interface- Somebody who has not used i phone may find it different or sometimes annoying until you have habit but i like it because of its simplicity. 5)Gaming- High Quality Games like Asphalt 8,etc played by me without any frame drops. 6)Battery Life- Last but not least in importance , battery life of this phone is quite good. I play lots and lots of heavy games daily even after that it has something left at the end of the day so it is quite useful to have the phone which has this quality of battery life. The most important problem with this phone is its availability that too irritated me, It is available on Flipkart only after that you have to wait for one week after registering then if you are lucky on sale day then you may be able to purchase it. Overall this is a superb phone at this price and if you are looking for phone around Rs. 15k and you have a great luck then you must buy it. Thank You
