after long waiting xiaomi may disappoint masses because in india fipkart is selling these handsets without charger and headsets,
Flipkart itself mentioned in their site : In the box (User Guide, Handset, USB 2.0 Cable) only
As far as Today's Market Specifications, it is the best phone,comparing its price-to-specs,but if it would have Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection & Expandable Memory Options to 64Gb, Then It Might Stop Other Smartphone Sales including (Nokia,Samsung,Sony,Micromax,Karbon,Xolo,Lava & Many More)...................In True Words All Brands Sales Figure Will Be Reduced...
sss, 17 Jul 2014is charger available with mi3?pls reply me....You can see what is included in the package if you buy from XiaoMi online, charger is included !
uda2k2, 18 Jul 2014I am looking for a DUAL sim phone in the budget range of Max 18K, but suggest me the best one.... moreThese are the three available options..
Alcatel One Touch Idol X Plus
Huawei Honor 3X Pro
I am looking for a DUAL sim phone in the budget range of Max 18K, but suggest me the best one. Thanks in advance.
Will a normal gsm card work with the wcdma version of the mi3 .? And will 3g work.?
I am writing this comment for Indians who are thinking of buying this phone.
First I will tell the SAR in EU(Xiaomi Mi-3 - 1.29).
The SAR values of other Xiaomi phones are given below.
Xiaomi MI2 - 1.37
Xiaomi Mi2A - 1.62
Xiaomi Mi2A - 1.37
Xiaomi Hongmi 1s - 1.42
Xiaomi Redmi Note - 1.39
From radiation point of view Xiaomi has high SAR value. Samsung has low SAR compared to this.
You can check this site to know the SAR value of other phones.
Here are the Pros and Cons
1.Powerful Processor. (Qualcomm MSM8274AB Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 and Adreno 330)
2.Good Quality Camera.
Camera (front)2 Megapixels
Sensor typeStacked CMOS)
3.Quality Design (Slim and Elegant).
4.Gorilla Glass 3 IPS Retina display manufactured by Sharp or LG. (441 ppi!)
5. Have required Sensors
6.Wi-Fi Display，Wi-Fi Direct，5GHz Wi-Fi, HDMI, NFC and TV-Out.
4.Cheap Price (14k!!!).
1.Non - Removable Battery. (But battery is 3050 mAh and the 10400 power bank is expected to be below 1k, so no issues there)
2.Single Sim (Nexus 5, LG G2, HTC One HTC One(M8), HTC One Max Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2 does not have dual sim).
3.High SAR. (That is an issue!!!!)
4.No Pure OS. (MUI is more close to Apple's Interface, some guys wont like it tho)
5.No 4G. (4G is not yet popular in India)
6.No SD Card Slot (But it has OTG).
But compared to the rivals Xiaomi is giving the specs at a lower rate. But Indian users are mainly using dual sim phones. So I would suggest to buy Redemi Note (http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_redmi_note-6217.php) or Redemi 1s (http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_hongmi_1s-6373.php).
For people complaing about the SD card issue, mi3 has OTG support. Buy a dual Hybrid pendrive (http://www.flipkart.com/sandisk-ultra-dual-16-gb-on-the-go-pendrive/p/itmdsxg4ysurgdg3). Or buy an OTG cable and use your pendrive. Space is not an issue when u have OTG.
And if you have a budget of 20k, Just wait for the 2k metallic Mi4 which will be launched on July 22. (http://www.gsmarena.com/xiaomi_mi_4_already_listed_online_ahead_of_its_unveiling-news-9049.php)
One bad news is Indian Govt. is planning Ban Online Sale of Foreign Products. (http://www.newindianexpress.com/cities/kochi/Will-Ban-Online-Sale-of-Foreign-Products/2014/07/18/article2335931.ece)
The Box Acessories are
So we have to buy earphones, screen guard, case and power bank. Total cost will be 18k. If you want a dual sim, I strongly recommend not to buy this.
But its worth it...
meera, 17 Jul 2014where can I buy xiaomi mi 3 in srilanaka?srilanka LTT no Mi 3 Anna
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2014well can any user of this mobile can tell whether i can use 3g on gsm sim . as it shows 3g on ... moreIts WCDMA which actually a different name of 3G. Yes, you can use 3G in this phone
No SD card support (16 GB internal only, 13 GB available out of the box)
No user replaceable battery
And single SIM!!!
Plus, many reviews are complaining about poor support and POOR BATTERY, in spite of its claim of 3050mAh battery, either the phone is power hungry, or the battery is not up to the mark!!
And what is the SAR value of the phone?? I cannot find it!! They should disclose it.
