It comes with SIM card tray for normal sim. I had micro sim which I was using in note 2. I had the remaking cutout of sim so I used a fevi quick and made is a normal sim.its working perfectly and no sim problem or call drops. You can definitely consider it. Pls don't believe in all negative reviews.you can do thorough research and decide yourself like I did.there are enough reviews there on you tube .
I recieved my Xiaomi Mi3 today. This is a quick review of the mobile.
I have a micromax canvas 2, htc desire 816, asus zenfone 5 8gb, samsung grand 2 in my house, so I am comparing Mi3 with all these mobiles.
Performance: The performance is smooth. Snapdragon 800 and 2 gb make sure the phone is lag free. It is very similar to htc with sense 6. Hard to tell any difference. As for the heating issue, it does heat a little bit during normal usage. I think it is common with all mobiles. Even the desire 816 gets heated when I use internet or play stick cricket for 10 mins.
Camera: The camera is good. Since I have been using desire 816 for quiet some time, I find that the htc is having a better camera than Mi 3. If this is your first phone with 13 MP camera, you will love it.
UI Customization: This is the best feature of the phone. I absolutely love this....awesome. You literally can change the UI look and functionality of the phone. There are a lot of themes for this mobile. All the needed apps like cleaner, security are inbuilt...so no need to download any thing extra.
Build & Looks: Phone is very well built. Does not squeak even if you press it hard. Screen is vibrant and the color reproduction is great. Viewing angles are amazing, better than desire 816 that I use. Speaker output is loud enough. I did not like the silver color....should have been darker grey. Others might like it.
I normally do not have time to play games, so skipping that part. Since its Snapdragon 800 with Adreno 330, it should play anything you through at it.
As per people who are unable to open the sim tray, try pushing the lock pin a bit harder it should open it up.
Over all very much impressed with this phone. Cant ask for anything more for 14000. Please don't go by those who have not used this phone and keep cribbing about it in every site. Some of them will complain if they get a LG G3 or Galaxy S5 at this price.
People who don't own this mobile or were unable to buy it, stop being jealous and stop writing negative reviews.
Forgot to mention it comes with 2map charger which is good in quality. Charger pin is normal pin not triangle ones...on box MRP written is 16900 but that's good that it is available for 13999..covers are availed on ebay but they are slightly expensive now..screen guard is not available in market but shopkeeper are using note 3 screen guard and modifying and putting for time being..costed me 100 rs..
This is review after using MI 3 for those who are deciding to buy or are interested in buying.it is a beautiful phone definitely desirable by most people..it has a good camera and good battery life.i was using note 2 for past 1 year and I can say for the price it's worth considering. It has come with 4.4.2 . Sound is loud enough for ring tone to be heard.there was no problem in sim tray, you need to push little harder for first time then it comes out with a click but it's not as smooth as iphone sim tray.pls use provided pin. Phone do get heated up little bit but I am not a gamer so did not get heated much for day today use.its good in size and screen is beautiful.i used phone in battery saving mode and battery dropped only 2 % in 2 hours of wifi use that's very decent. I feel pls keep your expectation high but not unreasonable..this is very good set and beautiful with lots of customisation. I am using this as primary phone now.it is worth buying for the budget.
Whatever the bad reviews about this phone is either they dont own the mobile or they are jealous of this phone. Buy the phone and feel the difference...

Manikanta, 24 Jul 2014Mi 3... Mi 3... Mi3 3... I got it yesterday. And updated with latest UI version. My review
1.... moreDid u see any call drops with the version 18. THe miui forums people from malaysi where complaining and they
had to go back to version 16.
For that reason i held back from it.
For first time yesterday it took me around 3hrs to 3.5hrs with a combination of usb charging and 2amps charger(which is very powerful) to charge to 100%. Finished at 12 yesterday night. Now its down to 51%.
Jud, 24 Jul 2014pls post the link where it is mentioned that the temperature can go up to 90c..
This is the thread which says the temperature can go up to 90.
Can anybody tell me the total charging time to get charged to 100% and
is this product compatible with all 3.5mm earphones(some models are not compatible with all earphones even though the jacket is 3.5mm)
