Xiaomi is a private company which designs, develops and sells smartphones. It is an Android based company and also has other consumer electronics. The company also makes air purifiers, fitness tracker, and many more electronic devices. The company is also known for making tablets, but the company is primarily known for the sale of its smartphone via flash sales in India. The company recently launched a new handset Xiaomi Redmi 3S. The phone was just launched a month back, and it is on sale. The smartphone has many features, but they are all very similar to the standard Android phone. There is nothing new in this phone except the fact that it satisfies human needs for calling, video chatting, messaging, etc. let’s have a look at Xiaomi Redmi 3s Review and all the specifications and then judge the phone further.
The smartphone has a 5.5-inch Full-HD display. It is a touchscreen phone. The resolution of this smartphone is 1080 x 1920 pixels. It measures around 144g. The smartphone has the feature of nano-SIM, micro-SIM, and dual standby. The smartphone also has a fingerprint scanner on the back. It is 8.5mm thick. It is not a huge phone and is easy to carry. The body is full of magnesium alloy. The display is not so great, but it is just like the standard Android smartphones and satisfies a customer’s need.
The phone runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 650, and its processor is 1.4GHz hexacore. The phone has a 3GB of RAM. The smartphone runs on Android 5.1. Unluckily, it doesn’t have Android 6.0.1 marshmallow. The major drawback of this smartphone is the unavailability of Android marshmallow. The smartphone still works on Android Lollipop 5.1. Probably it is expected that the company will soon upgrade this smartphone to marshmallow. The up gradation will complete this phone and satisfy the users. Most of the users buy smartphones while looking forward to its processor, software, and hardware. So if they don’t find it impressive, they do not bother checking the phone. The RAM of this smartphone is satisfying as it is similar to the other smartphones.
The phone features a 16GB of internal storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB. The expandable storage can be done with the help of microSD card slot. The expandable storage in this phone covers the drawback of such small internal storage. The storage becomes a major problem in all the smartphones if the internal storage is not vast but then the expandable storage always covers it. The expandable storage gives enough space to the users to download applications and stay content with the files and data they have on their smartphone.
The smartphone sports a 16-megapixel front camera with the LED flash which helps in clicking pictures in the night mode. The smartphone also sports 5 megapixels front facing camera for clicking selfies. It has features like phase detection, auto focus, f2.0 aperture and much more. The image quality of the rear camera is good, but the images have a bit of noise in it. The over sharpening pictures make it unpleasant for the users when they zoom in and see the pictures. Sometimes the HDR boosts shadows, so the picture becomes too bright and is not liked by the users. Overall, the camera is good but not as good as other Android smartphones.
The smartphone has a 4100 mAh battery. The battery life of this phone is excellent. The phone can work till 13 and a half hour at a stretch before the battery goes dead. As compared to other smartphones, the battery life is a bit less but still it has a perfect score and can be considered good. It can work for up to 14 hours of the 3G talk time. The phone can stay on for 8 hours while browsing the web and for video playback, it can run for another 9 hours. The battery life of this smartphone is quite sufficient and satisfying.

It also has a compass or a magnetometer which helps in locating the direction. It also has other sensors like proximity sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, barometer, and temperature sensor.
