Adding some points to what’s already said about the phone. I am talking about the 32gb version with 3gb ram.

1. VoLTE – Instant connect as said on stage by Hugo Barra. I am having a Reliance JIO sim and so does my friend so when I called her up there wasn’t any beep sounds before connecting, it just started ringing right away!

2. Camera – sorry to say this but the camera is a big lol in indoor and low light situations. My cousin’s Moto G3 performed better indoors.

3. Heating – the phone at most goes a bit warm but not beyond that. When I used the LETV Le 1S it was heating up lot more than this, I can confidently say that this phone handles processes quite well and doesn’t heat up awkwardly. Very usable.

4. Form – surprisingly compact and usable. Even typing isn’t that inconvenient, in fact one hand typing is a big more comfortable on Redmi Note 3 than on my iPhone 6S Plus.

5. Antutu – Test 1: 73234 | Test 2: 72087

6. Build – perfect! Having used the LETV Le 1S as well before I can vouch for Note 3 to have a better build for sure. Some minor polished finishes that matter. But the phone feels quite slipper in hand. Used a few all metal body phones before as well but never felt a phone to be this slippery.

7. Usability – feels really smooth so far and no lags as of now. Anyways, too early to comment as I hardly have any apps installed on it.

8. Fingerprint scanner – it’s the first time ever that I am using a phone with fingerprint scanner on the back. When I heard about the very concept of having a fingerprint scanner on the back long long ago I felt it was a very bad option but boy it’s naturally convenient. Coming to the one on Note 3 it’s super quick and quite accurate. No, I can’t really compare it down to milli seconds and rate it against other phones but it’s quite enough for comfort so nothing to crib about.

Bug 1: Fingerprint scanner. There seems to be a minor bug.
If I try to unlock the phone by placing an unregistered finger on fingerprint scanner for more than 5 times and then use the registered finger it fails to read the registered finger too later. I have to manually key in the passcode to unlock the phone. Tried replicating the problem and could successfully do it every time.

Bug 2: The inbuilt Mi Remote app seems to fail miserably in detecting my Samsung LED TV and my LG AC too. Got to give this app a detailed try today.

So basically if a wrong finger is used for more than 5 times the phone doesn’t detect the right finger too after that.

A close friend works for Reliance so he got me a sim. Valid till mid april (that’s when a public launch will happen I guess). The sim is preloaded with 75gb of 4g data and 4500 minutes of talk time,

Got the sim for free. Reliance isn’t selling them yet, it is only for employees. Reception is quite decent as of now and is better than Airtel where I stay.

Here you go with the speed test.

Update:

I got the first Redmi Note 3 in the very first sale just to test the phone and gave it away to a friend the very next day. I got another Redmi Note 3 in April 6th sale and this time it’s for myself.

So a small update on the battery life – using this phone feels like it’s using some alien technology, the battery life is too damn amazing!

In the afternoon when I checked the phone reached exact 50% battery, usage of around 14 hours and screen on time of around 02 hours and 40 minutes. My usage is as below

WiFi on all the time
Using 2 sims, one on 4G and one on 3G.
Data always on
Bluetooth always on and syncing with Mi Band and my car bluetooth system when in car
2 email accounts, 1 facebook account, 1 twitter, 1 instagram, 1 facebook messenger and 1 whatsapp account used.
Played 3 games of 8 ball pool
Streamed music to chromecast audio via wynk app for around 45 minutes
Then just messing around with the phone randomly to see all the features.
