The Redmi Note three is the first Redmi cellphone with a metal physique. A whole lot of the physique is made out of aluminum, with plastic caps on the prime and bottom and glass on the doorway. This presents the phone a decidedly premium actually really feel, which is type of extraordinary as that’s nonetheless a Redmi system.
The Redmi Phrase three follows Xiaomi’s minimalist design language. The doorway is dominated by the present with comparatively slender bezels that don’t occupy an extreme quantity of of your seen home.
Above the present are the earpiece, ambient mild sensor, proximity sensor, entrance coping with digicam, and a notification LED that’s solely seen when it’s illuminated. Underneath the present are the backlit navigation controls. Considering what variety of telephones at present drop the backlighting recently, it’s good to see Xiaomi not stoop to inane worth-slicing.
The doorway is framed by a thin chrome-accomplished edge that is painted within the equivalent shade as the rest of the phone. From there, the sides curve inwards, giving the sense of the phone being thinner than it is.
On the other aspect is a tray that holds each two SIM taking part in playing cards (mini + nano) or one SIM card and one microSD card. The tray sits fully flush with the physique and for as quickly as the color matches the rest of the phone, one factor some companies really battle with. On the very best is the headphone jack, secondary microphone, and the IR sensor. On the underside is the microUSB port and the primary microphone.
On the once more, we see the sixteen megapixel digicam lens up excessive with the two-tone twin LED flash beneath. Beneath that is the fingerprint sensor. The cutout for the digicam and the fingerprint sensor are exactly the an identical measurement and have a cultured, beveled edge. Beneath is the loudspeaker with a tiny lip that raises the underside so the speaker wouldn’t get blocked totally.
The Redmi Note three has a 5.5-inch, 1920 x 1080 choice LCD. The display has a handful of modes you can set it to. There often is the Regular mode, then Elevated distinction, which boosts colors and adjusts present distinction based on the displayed content material materials, and Computerized distinction, which adjusts the dynamic range of the present primarily based totally on the ambient gentle, making the darker areas of the image brighter beneath shiny light to make them further seen with out rising the backlight. You might also regulate the color temperature by setting it to easy, warmth, or cool.
The Redmi Note three is the first cellphone to launch with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 650 SoC. It moreover packs in 2GB or 3GB of RAM, counting on whether or not or not you go for the 16GB or 32GB model. We obtained the 3GB/32GB model.
There is a microSD slot, as talked about sooner than, do you must need additional storage, nevertheless you then positively’d forego one in all many SIM slots.
The cellphone has LTE assistance on every SIM slots (band three, 5, forty, forty one + VoLTE), along with Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.1, and even an IR blaster to manage dwelling residence tools. There is no NFC, nonetheless, and the phone nonetheless makes use of a microUSB connector.

The company claims it might unlock the cellphone in zero.three seconds, which checks out nonetheless offered that the present is already on.

The image prime quality of the rear digicam was a bit underwhelming. Pictures have a very good little bit of noise in them, which coupled with the over-sharpening made them unpleasant to take a look at when zoomed correct in. Video wasn’t good each. The phone seems to be upscaling a lower determination video, which is clearly seen when taking photos nonetheless subjects, as you probably can see the jagged edges of a low choice file being carried out once more at a greater resolution. Colors moreover look flat inside the video and the dynamic range is even worse than on photos.
The Redmi Note three has a 4,050mAh battery. The battery is non-removable, nevertheless we don’t suppose that’s going to be a big problem with this cellphone. The Redmi Word three consistently returned superb battery life figures in our testing, with on-show time of 6-7 hours every single day. The phone has a battery saver mode of sorts that’s on by default, which cuts once more the state of affairs and group entry of background apps, nonetheless we didn’t uncover any antagonistic outcomes, corresponding to apps not updating throughout the background.
