Avoid using SIM adapter. Go to your local mobile phone shop and get yourself a standard size SIM (also known as mini SIM).
Many customers get stuck by using a SIM adapter and cause damage to the SIM slot.
For details how to safely remove a stuck SIM tray, see this video:

Anonymous, 19 Aug 2014There are tons & tons of hands on reviews stated before, you have to go through the pages ... moreMi3 is indeed an awesome phone. I bought it in the sale held on 29 July and am using it since then. I have not come across any negative issue so far. The phone is a joy to hold, the screen is gorgeous, the user interface is pleasing, the navigation butter smooth. The call quality is good and the speaker is loud enough. The net connection is super fast and the battery charge lasts for the whole day. I advise all who were fortunate to get it in today's sale to go for it without any Second thought.
hi friends I was trying to booking tis phone please tel me how to booking this phone.
thanks & Regards
Got my mi3 today
First feel amazing
Second feel awesome
All I can is its worth buying and value for your money
Don't compare it with stupid money eater Samsung mobiles ...this is monster and Samsung is just a plastic toy in front of this
Everything is just awesome starting from camera and speed
Touch is amazing and most important weight and thickness is just too low
Camera gives good quality pics in night too as I have just tested in night only
Well done xiaomi
AnonD-266019, 19 Aug 2014why no one is talking about the Hands on experience?
plz share ur experienceThere are tons & tons of hands on reviews stated before, you have to go through the pages for them.
Posting a review stated before...
I got the mobile on the first sale 22 July. As a user of more than two weeks, it is an awesome device. If you don't trust me, just grab if any of your friends are having it. When you feel it you will love it. It not only looks and feels premium, but also works as a high end device. It is a premium device. I read comments about chinese engineering & american engineering, please don't be biased by the chinese brand, it not a yet another chinese brand or mobile.
There are 3 performance modes. 1.High performance 2. Balance 3. Battery Saving. In High Performance my mobile Antutu benchmark result is 34762, stays top in the rankings.
I have installed Asphalt 8 Airborne, Frontline Commando all I high graphics intensive games. Plays without any lag at all.
I tested choosing the Battery Saving option and played the games. It played well without any lag in even Battery Saving mode. Think what it could do in High Performance mode.
Heating Issue. When you play Asphalt 8 , which smartphone doesn't get warm?
I have Note 2 also, it also gets warm when playing Asphalt 8. I didn't find any significant increase in heating comparatively to any other smartphone.
I think, People hear use Mi3 for first time and they play games and they sense the warm and decide it heats up, without knowing what other smartphone does. Every phone in market right now heats up when using graphic intensive apps.
Battery Backup outstanding. I operated for a whole day, with 3g, wifi, gaming , calls, with screen brightness of 75% & in Balance Setting Mode. I still had juice left to charge still next day. If you use Auto Brightness or reduce the screen brightness with Battery saving mode, it can easily last for 1.5 days. Battery charges in less than 2 hours.
Themes... Guys trust me , whole lot of themse.. i can't stop seeing them. Been glued to it. The design, look everything so good. The UI 'MIUI' interface is a the icing on top. Some may not like the apps being rounded in shape, especially who are used to typical android apps shape. They can use any launcher such as Nova Launcher, once installed it gives the look and feel of the typical android interface. The sky is the limit for 'MIUI' customization. You can select different components from different themes and use as your own them in whatever way you like.
Camera: Outdoor pics are awesome. I agree under low light it does shows some grains only when you zoom. But guys it is not a cam, it is a mobile. And trust those grains aren't visible unless you zoom in completely. Secondary camera's age & gender detection is a real funny feature. It is just a funny feature, age changes depending upon the amount of light falling on the face, but will make you guys laugh with your friends.
USB OTG works very well with pendrive and External Hard Disk. Able to connect 1 TB WD my passport HDD and play video from it. If anybody wants to know how to connect External HDD, use USB Stick Plugin & Total commander so that NTFS file format will be detected. The same with pendrives if its FAT32 it can detect directly, else install the above apps.
why no one is talking about the Hands on experience?
plz share ur experience
