About Redmi 3S Prime (Dark Grey, 32 GB)(3 GB RAM) Dark Grey

If you see the sub ₹10000 price segment in India, you would get a sense that here is where there is all the action and competition among smartphone manufacturers. And Xiaomi has been leading this competition offering a wide choice of handsets to price sensitive customers. After the success of Redmi Note 3 and Redmi 3 it has come up with the Redmi 3s Prime. Here is our take on this phone and what’s in store for the customers.



On the design front the phone looks a near replica of the Redmi Note 3 and this is quite understandable as the design was well appreciated by the audience. Like the Note 3, the 3s Prime, too features a metal body, has an elegant matte finish at the back, and with the standard curve body it creates quite a polished look.  Given the price range the phone sits in; its design surely is over the top. The power button and the volume rocker sit adjacent which makes it a comfortable phone for one hand use. It runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with the MIUI 8 skin bringing some much needed upgrades compared to Redmi Note 3.             

Moving on to the camera, the Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime features a 13 MP f/2.0 rear camera that comes with Phase Detection Autofocus and LED Flash much like most others in this price range. It isn’t extraordinary but does the basics quite well. Daylight images are near perfect with colours being vibrant but there is the noise issue in images shot at night and indoors. The front sensor is 5 MP which is a little surprising as most rivals go for 8 MP but the selfies are acceptable. Talking about storage you get 32 GB internal memory and a hybrid SIM 2 slot that supports microSD cards up to 256 GB.


As far as performance goes it is quite a powerful phone in your hand featuring an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with clock speed of 1.4 GHz. Add 3GB of RAM and this turns into one of the best performing phones in this segment. Gaming experience is pretty decent on this phone and it doesn’t show any signs of lag even when running heavy games.  Shifting to connectivity, it is a 4G LTE phone and comes with support for multiple bands. The phone also supports Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 with A2DP, BDS, A-GPS and GLONASS. It also has an Infrared Port and rear mounted Fingerprint sensor.



Display-wise, you get a 5 inch IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen that offers 720 x 1280 pixels resolution and good pixel density of 294 ppi. The colour output is good and doesn’t look oversaturated like many of its competitors. While the viewing angles aren’t perfect, overall the phone does offer you one of the best displays for this segment. Battery-wise you have quite a powerhouse in your hand with a 4100 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery which should last any user a day and in most cases would last a couple of days on full charge with average usage.       

Good Performance with Awesome Price Tag         
The Redmi 3s Prime is one of the best smartphones not just for its price tag but even if you look at phones that are 20% higher priced than this. It’s a nice package and definitely one recommended for users who want performance without spending a fortune.


Why Should You Buy?

Great Performance –
If you take a look at the hardware it is a completely package. Combine the processor and the RAM and you are speaking of some serious performance and when compared to the price this is an awesome deal.   

Big Battery – There has been quite an incredible improvement on the battery front and the 4100 mAh battery is something users would love the most about this phone. It can go on and on and you won’t run out of juice.
