Redmi 3S review
Redmi 3S release date in India: October 22, 2016
Xiaomi has been very successful in the under 10,000 mobiles segment in India with the launch of Redmi Prime 2 and Redmi 1. To add to the success of these predecessors, Xiaomi Redmi 3 is set to be launched on October 22, 2016.
The Redmi 3S mobile will be coming in 2 variants of 2GB and 3GB RAM along with respective 16 & 32GB internal with an external memory option.
The phone will not be coming with a dedicated memory card slot. Only one SIM card can be used if a memory card is inserted.
The Redmi 3S has an elegant touch of finish and class that its predecessors lacked. The 5-inch display screen fits into the body with ease and the phone due to its dimensions fits into one’s hand without any difficulties. The metal body houses the speakers at the rear along with the fingerprint sensor/ scanner.
The Redmi 3S specifications include a Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 chipset. Adding this is an Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 with an Adreno GPU. The Redmi 3S runs on Android Marshmallow V.6. This configuration is boosted by 2 & 3GB RAM.
The Redmi 3S features 16GB internal memory with an option to expand till 256GB. However, the second SIM slot will be rendered useless if the memory card is in use.
The Redmi 3S Sports a IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which supports the 16M color combination. The 5-inch screen produces a display output of 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. The 71% screen to body ratio in the screen gives you ample space to toggle the controls.
The 13 MP PDAF primary camera is equipped with 5 piece lens which contributes to clearer and sharper pictures in even in conditions with low light. With features like 12 real-time filters, Panorama, HDR, and countdown times, Redmi 3S gives picture clicking a new experience. The 5MP front facing camera is packed with features like Beautify, face recognition and multiple filters.
The 4100 mAh two-day battery is one of the strong points of this new release of Xiaomi. The 685Wh/L battery technology has helped enhance battery life and phone performance. Quick charge is also available as standard.
The Redmi 3S price that is planned is very justifiable for such a power packed smartphone with latest processors, CPU,GPU, RAM and OS. The 3S will be a good fit who wish to use a smartphone for gaming, yet, can fit into their hands and pockets with ease. While, not spending a lot of money on it.
