Regarding heating issues
Its there when the phone is charging. You cannot charge and speak like other phones. This one gets very hot.
Heating while playing games is normal like nexus 5.
There slight warm sensation when running intensive apps.
Have to check with Flipkart for heating during charging.

please give your valuable comment
1) phone performance

My phone is yet to be delivered. But my doubt is how this phone is more cheaper in India than in its hometown china??
kindly add corning gorills glass 3 to its specification
MI team confirmed in Facebook that for india MI3 comes with gorilla glass 3
Got my phone yesterday evening at 5.
2) UI is Great
3)Benchmarks as mentioned are high.
4)No SIM Card slot problem in my phone. I removed and added sim(mini sim) like 3 times . Just need to be careful.
5) Heating yes u can feel it slightly. This is because the phone is very thin and has a metal backcover which allows heat. Compared to samsung which has a plastic. But the temp on playing games and installing apps was like 46C. The phone can go up to 90C as per miui sites.
6) CG3 present. And its not slippery as people say.
Its chinese yes but the components inside are made by some reputed companies. But keeping fingers crossed it does well.
Guys - heating problem is attributed to Kitkat and not this phone hardware, please check with your friends using Android Kitkat 4.4.2,they will report the same heating issue.
Jud, 23 Jul 2014Pepole who are having heating issues please discuss it in details.. i have already ordered and... moreHei dude,
Heating issue is quite relative. Some people say there's no heating issue while other claim to have. The untold fact is that it depends solely on the weather mostly.I have noticed that my Nexus 7 never heated up during Winters when the temp is 22-29 degree celsius. I use to game a lot. But when it comes to summer it gets hot easily because the whether outside is 32-36 degrees. Its too hot that i couldn't play any games for more than 10 minutes. So if you live in a relatively colder area there's less chance that you will experience this issue. Hope that was informative. :)
It is not as good as mentioned by Flopkart. Its just another Chinese sub-standard product. Asus Zenfone 5 (16GB) is much better in all aspects. Zenfone 5 has better camera output, better battery life and faster processing.
