I would suggest to opt for Micromax canvas knight in same price range. after all its Indian company. All the specifications and benchmark results are top notch. plus it looks way more attractive than xiaomi. Myself using it over a month! I dont understand all this hype about xiaomi phones! canvas knight is any day better guys.

I faced the same problem before. Connect the phone to Wi-Fi so that it can download the latest version(you can do it manually as well by going to mi.com). Afterwards the downloaded file will be stored in a folder named download_ROM, if you do it via phone. If you download it manually then you will have to save it in that folder of your phone. Go to the updater app in your phone and click on menu button(besides home button). Select the update package from the earlier mentioned folder and proceed as directed. Best of luck.
PS: It would be better to backup your phone before doing the update.

Most are biased just it is from china, and blatantly bashing out the phone features before even clearing the doubt. Recently one such post is MI3 is fake because in benchmark it is showing the device model to be MI3W, and flipkart selling fake because benchmark is less. Few ask why it is so, most comes in to conclusion before clearing the doubts. I think that is what the above poster wants to clarify.

Let's take an example, there's people asking for SAR value of this device? I don't see problem with that. But look back few pages and you'll find all these "PLEASE DONT BUY THIS PHONE IT HAS HIGH RADIATION BECAUSE IT'S FROM CHINA" ridiculous stuffs. You call these opinions? These are nonsense from people who did not bother to search for the devices' SAR value, the standard limit value, and the comparison to other so-called "branded" phones like Samsung or iPhone; or just simply ask about it here.
Another example regarding the black screen, people are not ASKING WHY IS THE SCREEN BECOMES BLACK DURING CALL nor sharing why it happens and what's the solutions. Their "opinions" are like "these phones are terrible new unit out-of-box already defective black screen can't call, so disappointed in this cheap China brand" and such.
vipulshah, 07 Aug 2014Here are the negatives of the phone. . .which i encountered after getting in my hand.

If i said with screen guard on means it's covering proximity sensor. Cut out of screen guard only for camera portion. If you are thinking proximity hardware is of good quality then it may be..

I think these are related to MI3 and people are giving there opinion,it may be positive or negative(complain).
Then what is ur classification about Opinion.
DCW, 07 Aug 2014Your very welcome reply sort of confirms my suspicions that most of the fans of this phone are... moreHuawei is using cheap Mediatek chip which still stucked on Jelly Bean 4.2.2 while Mi3 with Snapdragon is already on KitKat 4.4.2, Huawei Mali GPU is also no match for Mi3 Adreno GPU, on sceen capasitive button also another drawbacks as it take off screen space, Probably the only advantage of Huawei is Sd slot, but many people oike me don't need SD slot as i don't store movie, music in my phone i will only install game to play for short while & delete it off after getting bored woth it, as at niw i still have 11GB space.
