Another budget smartphone from xiaomi
By Randall McClum | 2 Aug 2016 | 2 Aug 2016
A perfect budget beast from Xiaomi. Octacore 1.1GHz processor gives you good performance. Camera with flash is mediocre under indoor lighting, however it records good photos outside in natural sunlight. 5 inch screen makes the mobile small and gives you a good grip, while the 3gb ram is more than enough for normal multitasking. Metal body looks good, however you would need a case to prevent scratches. The display is good, though is 720p (not Full HD like Redmi Note 3) and has got good viewing angles. I would prefer Redmi note 3 or redmi 3s, depending on your budget or if you dont need a large display. Officially Available on sale here - https://goo.gl/2vm6RP
