Appearance seems not to be accepted
Xiaomi Redmi 3 change more significantly in appearance than the previous generation models , from 4.7-inch screen sizes up to 5 inches. Xiaomi Redmi 3 has 139.3*69.6*8.5mm dimension and weigh 143.5g, compared to red mi2 with 134*67.2*9.4mm size and weight of 133g, Redmi 3 screen size not only affects the grip, but also successfully "lose weight", thickness of the fuselage has been noticeably reduced.
Front ID doesn't change much in its style
It's a little regretful that three keys haven't backlight.
Redmi 3 uses a 5-inch IPS screen, using the OGS technology, resolution 1280* 720P, to tell the truth , this screen appears quite satisfactory as a whole, but it supports the Sun screens, luminous screen, eye pattern, etc of course, have brought the much improvement of users' experience. according to the xiaomi popularized version;
5 inch screen size means better gripping.
On the back of the mobile phone, Redmi 3 should be the most controversial, which called "exposure" techniques,Xiaomi said this kind of tech has been applied into apple logo of the back and 'iphone' in iPhone 5, which is characterized by the pattern without stamping, etching of the fault. So do you like this pattern?
A big change in camera position
Speakers are still in the bottom
Redmi 3 is used metal material in the middle of back cover, hand feeling is good to the touch, in order to ensure the signal, on the top and bottom uses plastic material, but seam technology is good, and it does not give the feeling of assassination.
Camera always is designed on the middle back on the previous Redmi series, but this Redmi 3 has been put on the top left of the back with narrow size, and the speaker has not change at the bottom.
Top of the fuselage with an infra-red transmitter
The interface in the bottom is in the middle of the fuselage
There is the other an infra-red transmitter on the top of Redmi 3 in addition to the headphone jack and outside noise-reducing microphone, and the system has also been installed the remote control, this point will not increase costs, but it does allow users to get a lot of benefits. At the bottom is a microUSB interface and microphone , volume key and power key at the right side of the fuselage, because of the sleek fuselages, so is the card slot on the left side of the fuselage.

And Redmi 3 card slot use a combination of micro SIM card +Nano SIM card, nanoSIM card slot also supports microSD expansion. As for battery capacity, it's the biggest highlight, this handset uses a piece of the battery capacity reaching 4100mAh, considering the hardware performance and screen size and other factors, so that capacity for most people for 2 days of regular use will be no problem, overusing-users can also use a day. Compared with Redmi 2, redmi 3 has only added to the weight of the 10G, body thickness reduced to the 8.5mm, the gripping has not been affected because of increased battery capacity.
MIUI 7.1 for new version
Last week, Xiaomi will almost update its products to MUI 7.1 version, and xiaomi redmi 3 also used MIUI 7.1, in fact, xiaomi will not take this way to name, because updating too fast will not let the user defect, they just update some important function integrated into a small version to update, in order to let the users know the main features.
