Special Features

Even with more features, its weight has only risen by 4 g. This is quite minimal, considering the increase in battery capacity and the new metal finish. Better ergonomics, the smooth metallic texture and an overall sense of ruggedness have given the Redmi range an overall feeling of quality.

Fingerprint Sensor

The fingerprint sensor may not be that special a feature in high-end devices, but it is for a device of this price. The Redmi Note 3's fingerprint sensor works great, but unfortunately its role is limited. It does not include the release function trackpad as seen in the Huawei Mate S, for example.

Infrared sensor

The device also has an infrared sensor at the top, but the international version does not come pre-installed with an application to control devices through this port, and the Chinese ROM only supports Chinese and English.


The Redmi Note 3 is a budget smartphone that successfully manages to not just get the basics right but offers some high-end features at a very affordable price. The phone’s closest competition is the LeEco 1s (Rs.10,199) which offers full metal finish, a brilliant design, a great display, good camera, flawless performance and also the future-ready USB Type-C port.
