Redmi for Redemption?

Xiaomi had previously come up with a bevy of products that appealed to the taste of the common Indian man, low on price and high on features, with a certain degree of reliability thrown in. However the all plastic build of their phones barring the Mi4 with a metal buffer around the sides, wasn’t something that everyone preferred. And in the relatively long hiatus that Xiaomi seemed to be in, new companies like LeTV tried to maximise their outreach, and quite effectively too. However, Xiaomi is back, and it’s back with a vengeance. It looks like that they have learn from their mistakes of the past, and have addressed all of it in their new release, the all new Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.

The phone is available in two variants, as per the target markets, powered by either a Mediatek MT6795 Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 Helio X10 powered by a PowerVR G6200 GPU without microSD card slot, or a Qualcomm MSM8956 Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & Dual-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A72 Snapdragon 650 powered by an Adreno 510 GPU with MicroSD card support. These variants have sub variants in terms of memory available, respectively 16 GB ROM with 2 GB RAM, and another variant at 32 GB ROM and 3 GB RAM. It is all powered by the 4000 mAh Lithium-Polymer non-removable battery which more than sufficient to last more than a day on medium to high usage.

As soon as you hold the phone, the first massive change you would notice would be the metal build of the phone. Going down a different path, Xiaomi has decided to impart a premium feel to this phone and that is obviously a good thing. On the left of the phone you would find the power button and the volume rockers, which are metallic as well and give a very good tactile feedback. On the top one would find the 3.5 mm headphone jack, a secondary microphone for noise cancellation and an IR blaster to let the consumer use the phone as a remote. The right of the phone houses the SIM tray which is essentially a hybrid SIM slot. Which translates to the use of either a micro SIM and a nano SIM or a micro SIM along with an external microSD card, which is a trade-off of some sorts, but it still allows for external memory cards up to 128 GB, which is a welcome feature nevertheless. The bottom houses the usual micro USB 2.0 port and the primary microphone pinhole. The front has a metal earpiece placed alongside the ambient light sensor, the 5 MP f/2.0 front facing fixed focus camera capable of recording 1080p videos, and the notification LED on the top. Followed by the 5.5” 1080p IPS LCD screen having 403 ppi pixel density, which makes up for about 72% of the body followed by the usual set of 3 backlit capacitive physical buttons. Flip it around, and at the back, you are greeted with a 16 MP, f/2.0 camera with phase detection autofocus above a dual-LED (dual tone) flash and the circular fingerprint scanner below them that is said to be able to recognize the fingerprint and unlock the phone in only 0.3 seconds. Going further below, we see the regular Mi branding, then the speaker grill followed by a plastic bump about which I’ll state later. The top and bottom are made out of plastic, which Xiaomi claims has been put to enhance network connectivity.

Switch it on, and the similar MIUI theme greets you with its bright icons and overlays. This handset comes preloaded with MIUI 7 that is running atop Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. I used the Showbox App to test videos of varying resolution and colour schemes, and all of them seemed to appear crisp and clear and I have no complaint with the viewing angles either. The bump below the speaker grill manages to keep the speakers a tad above the surface, making sure that the sound is not muffled. The camera performance was very good, however in conditions of low light, enough noise could be observed in the picture. Shutter speed is pretty responsive, and video quality above average. It has all the filters and effects seen on previous Mi devices. The fingerprint sensor was accurate and unlocked the phone in a jiffy every time. ShowBox APK also works great on the Redmi smartphone. Make sure to check this app out if you are a movie lover.

All in all, this phone outpaces many of the phones in its class by its aggressive pricing strategy, but would still be facing stiff competition from the likes of LeEco/LeTV Le1S and the CoolPad Note 3. Would the growing trust in Xiaomi lead it to glory? Or would the newfound adventurous nature of the young Indian buyers lead them to try the newcomers over this handset? Maybe only time can say.
