Hello Mi3 users, when u first switch on ur Mi3 phone, there is a 600 MB update available for the MIUI VERSION 18.0. How much time did it take to get it updated ?
Is it slow to update through BSNL BROADBAND ?
Does it have gorilla glass? Mine got some scratches on it & I thing its nail marks :(
Can any one who has this phone tell me whether it has Tv out and FM? The first news report mentioned these features.I fail to get users manual on site.
AnonD-289544, 03 Aug 2014You said you had connectivity issues. And at atlast you mentioned it lacks performance. I play... moreThanks for your reply !! And since your handset is functioning great, I request you to give me some tips.
The time taken by any phone to connect to net is also one of the performance parameter for me. Its a generic term which I used.
My major concern is net connectivity. Its extremely slow.....avg 10-12 kbps. Connected to PC, connected to WiFi and then only marginal improvement but not crossing 30kbps. At the same time net speed on PC and wifi is 500-600 kbps.
And about themes, I could download one designed specially for India. Its well crafted.
Hope now i am clear in stating my exact problem.
VIZ, 03 Aug 2014Hello Guys........I got my Mi3 on 31st. Did a lot of research and then decided to go for Mi3.... moreBoss thanks for detailed review.....but I need to know I read that its a wcdma than is there any issue related GSM sim card connectivity?

AnonD-290345, 03 Aug 2014Besides the Scam on the actual sales on Flipkart site, heard the following from some contacts ... moreI can talk on my Mi3 for over half an hour continuously. It does get warm but it's never overly hot. Strength of signal do affect the heat generated too.
And, sticking the phone to your face and ear during call is a bad habit and you should change that. It's better to hold the phone ~1cm away.
t, 03 Aug 2014cheap phoneSo you think Samsung phones worth the price you're paying for?
For XiaoMi you're paying 70% for the phone and 30% for XiaoMi's profits, taxes, deliveries, miscellaneous etc.
For Samsung you're paying 40% for phones and 60% for profits, taxes, retailer markup, HUGE ADVERTISEMENT fees, miscellaneous etc.
Take these all aside, Samsung phones are no expensive at all. You're paying your money just for their advertisement mainly.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2014In Malaysia we can buy it from shop, meaning those who got "invited" r selling unope... moreMost sellers in Malaysia including Satu Gadget and DirectD are selling the China sets of OnePlus One as they are much easier obtained. They open the package and flash the CyanogenMod 11S which is used on international sets (China sets has ColorOS installed by default). The differences between China set and international set include default ROM and slight design (international sets have CyanogenMod logos).
Besides the Scam on the actual sales on Flipkart site, heard the following from some contacts that "somehow" bought it...
* Xiaomi Mi3 Heats up extremely fast. After 5 minutes of call, the front glass heats up so much you cannot put the phone on your ears. There is a risk of Fried error syndrome.
* Solution for above is to use Hands Free. Unfortunately Hands Free is not provided along with the phone. You have to purchase this.
* Also, i am not SAR level for Mi3 is extremely high compared to some of the top brands, not sure where corners are cut on this device
* Most of the accessories for Mi3 are not available - Mi3 official case, Mi3 Screen Guard, Mi3 hands free.. all of them are out of stock on Flipkart. If you are desperate you can buy expensive fakes as stop gap arrangement.
If Mi3 cannot deliver volumes why is this hype being created by this Chinese company? Doesnt it sound fishy?
