Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 - Review - a great phone for a very low price
There are many Chinese phones available for under $150 but most of them cut lots of corners in order to keep that low price.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 costs under $150 and brings an amazing value for that low price.
It's made out of metal, has a 5.5" 1080p screen, a big battery, and a fingerprint scanner.
It comes in two variants, one that has a Snapdragon processor and one that it's using a Octa-core Mediatek processor, the Helio X10. I got the one with the mediatek processor and i choose that one because i have used other phones with the same processor and they worked very well.
The screen has great colours and viewing angles and gets quite bright; however in direct sunlight it is a difficult to be seen.
The battery can last almost 2 days with quite a bit of usage but it charges slowly with the charger provided.
The fingerprint scanner that is on the back of phone works great and it's accurate about 99% of the time.
The UI is a bit different from the stock Android and it can become a bit annoying depending what you are used to. You can easily install Nova Launcher or any other launcher and change it's look to something closer to stock Android.
The rear camera is a 13mp sensor with a f2.2 and it takes great looking pictures in daylight. (check out some samples in my review video). Low light pictures don't turn up good and i would avoid taking any low light pictures with it.
Overall for the low price of this phone it brings amazing value.
