Thanks for your compliments !!
Considering your primary requirements are Camera quality, battery backup.......If budget is not your constraint then go for HTC Desire 816.....it gives u good photos.....compared to Mi3...specially at Night.
Also though the battery size is smaller compared to Mi3 it holds good for the SoC i.e. 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400. Its extreme battery saving mode gives you additional 24-36 hrs by keeping only minimum applications ON such as calling, texting and calender..even though when chrge level drops down below 25%.
Instead of online purchase you can inquire at the local retailers. Its price should be around Rs. 22K. With your current smartfone exchange it should come down below 20K. In this case it is a good buy.
HTC is a good company and hopefully they will upgrade 816 to Android-L which is expected to enhance your camera and battery.
Hope you find this helpful.

Service is expensive, 11 Aug 2014I completely understand that this product is excellent, but I rate the product as good ONLY if... moreIt usually costs anywhere from 100 to 150 usd to replace a screen on many of todays popular phones so the price they quoted you seems accurate. Again the downside to buying cheap electronics is usually its not as economically feasible to fix in the event they damaged or broken.
A lot of people tend to have too much faith in gorilla glass. You basically dropped your phone from waist height, you should consider yourself lucky it only got a slight crack. It all depends how the phone hits the ground, and of course the surface its landing on.
Maybe next time you should buy an HTC as they offer free screen replacement within a certain time period in some or all regions. I forget the details. Remeber Xiaomi is giving up a sizable profit margin so the masses can afford this phone, unfortuately that doesnt translate to cheaper repairs. Also, they got to pay Hugos salary some way dont they?
During call I hear a buzzing sound in earpiece and its really annoying... Does it occur normally or its a defect...
Otherwise phone is great...

Vishivish, 10 Aug 2014XIAOMI Mi3 issues: PHone screen gets locked out during a call. Either u make a call or reciev... moreI thought my Mi3 was having the same issue, but later realized that the original screen protector/cover that the phone has was causing this "issue". Removed it, and the phone was working as expected. The screen protector is very thick and also no transparent, kind of a privacy screen guard. Hence this issue comes up while calling or receiving a call. I suggest you should do the same and remove the original screen protector on the phone.
I completely understand that this product is excellent, but I rate the product as good ONLY if the service is good and economical. I dropped my phone by mistake with very less hight and there is slight crack on my phone. I completely agree that the damage cost is not included as part of warranty but the phone is not tough enough handle slight rough use. this is Gorilla glass and should not crack for the height of 2 or 3 feet. When I enquired about the cost of so called Gorilla Glass it cost around Rs. 7000 which is half the cost of the phone which is not really practical. You can't establish in India until you have good service and cost affective Service. COuld anybosy help me on the cost ON Servie? I can get a new phone with Gorilla Glass in the Market for th Service cost
