Dropped mine a couple times. Once just two weeks ago slipping off the table with no case at all. Not a single scratch or dent! About 17 months and still going strong! Best phone I ever had. Great price. Well built. I also have an LG G3 Beat from seven months ago and I prefer that for media playing device because of my 64 sd card and louder speaker. But I prefer the Mi 3 for everything else like browsing, camera, speed, and smoothness.
I have been using Mi3 for 1 years plus already and the battery life, performance and speed is still perfect. No lag no problem at all from the first time I used. The first thing that bug me is only the contact number is not saved to my country format and duplicated into empty contacts. But it is okay now and I really love this phone and I haven't found any other phone better than this with its price. I even dropped it a couple of times and 1 time very hard one the road and thank fully nothing went wrong with that incident.

I have using this phone 1 year 2 month :D.. Its Still the best Smartphone Ever with cheapest price and I never complaint it.. Performans,camera,Sound Quality,Screen is the best ..Its verry Smooth and No lagg.
I think its not true the touch screen is gorilla touch. I have mi3 with just a small crack you can not use it again until you change the touch screen.
As at now mine is laying in my room. I can't even get the touch screen to buy anywhere in Ghana.
I will grad if someone can show me where some to buy in Ghana.
rajefh, 12 Dec 2015Nonsense 3rd class chineese. Play store.SMS calls nothing works on these chineese phone. Crap ... moreDont be jealous because it offers better performance at a lower price. And as for the chinese brand goes its fine because it still uses snapdragon 800 chipset and adreno 330 gpu which are used on flagship phones.
Nonsense 3rd class chineese. Play store.SMS calls nothing works on these chineese phone. Crap service.
I have this phone for almost 2 months. Very impressed compared to a few rivals which came into my hands (Galaxy S3, LG G4c, Lumia 925, Galaxy S5 mini, iPhone 4/4s).
Pros: excellent battery backup; with moderate internet usage (WiFi combined with 3G) it goes to 3 days; quality desing and feeling, it gets you the impression that you have a very expensive mobile in your hand and the material used to build is very good as i have dropped it 2 times from almost 1.5m and not even a scratch. Another excellent feeling is that is very smooth in operation (no lags, no waiting time, no app crashes) - honestly it's operating system "stoled" the best things from IOS and Android; display is absolutely amazing as colors and contrast and also cleans itself from fingeprints and others.
Cons: lacks encryption which is needed to install work e-mail; sound during call is not very good and also the ringer could have been louder.
All in one - congratulations Xiaomi for this rising star and also for your interesting operating system.
Only if apple were to mould these features in a phone, it would have costed like zillions of dollars. I would like to know, if it comes in a 2.3ghz octa-core variant?
i bought it on genuary 2014; still PERFECTLY working. Whwn i bought it was the best! Now is still a great phone. Who says third class is probably third class brain
Guys this phone is awesome but its screen breaks easily. And once you gave your phone to service centre for repair then they take 40-45 days to repair and when questioned they say that we didn't received parts from MI. Xiaomi's service centre is poor and disgusting. Just for screen replacement they take Rs 6500/- Please don't buy any products from Xiaomi instead go with other brands.
Third class mobile.... And third class service given by customer care centre. No body is der to give u right guideline.... Useless phone company... Nonsense employes....
I've been using xiaomi mi3 for almost 1.5years .
I really do like this phone. It doesn't give me any problem at all. The problem is that mi3 only have 2gb ram, I bought the 16gb memory, its not enough for me. Lol. But overall. Everything works fine to me. Its a superb phone tbh. I do take selfies a lot, the secondary camera looks great for me. The battery life could last 1 and a half day for me, even if i always uses the wifi. But if you're using your data, it might drain the battery a little more, still last 1day for me.
And now I'm planning on buying mi4.
