alwaysON, 11 Dec 2013I been fortunate to actually get my hands on one of these. Even in China right now, these are ... moreHey since you have this, is there screws at the back or anywhere where it would allow you to open up the phone? because batteries usually last ~3 years and i don't want to spend money on a new phone.
maomaomall support the preorder for the Xiaomi Mi3,only $345 for the 16gb version,they support the paypal payment and the DHL freeshipping.
The site maomaomall.com support for the presale of the xiaomi mi3,they said they will have stocks on day 27/1/2014
Apparently the owners of the site do not read the comments. They still have incorrect specifications listed for this phone.
It does support 802.11ac/b/g/n wifi, I read it on xiaomi's site
People here really having problems with understanding that it's only 1 sim card
Did you what's the different between WiFi Display,WiFi Direct,5GHz and WiFi 2.4Ghz .
According to xiaomiworld.com mentioned that Mi3 is going to be one of the very first smartphone to incorporate the new Wi-Fi 802.11ac standard which runs on the far less-busy 5GHz band, and provides higher speeds than your conventional smartphone.
802.11 ac is first use in snapdragon 800, the speed will be faster 3 times than WIFI 802.11 n, but you need a ac router.
The specifications posted here have a few errors
The Mi-3 uses a full sized Mini-SIM, not a Micro-Sim.
There are two versions of his phone. One uses the Nvidia Tegra 4 processor and 3G only works on China's TC-SCDMA network. It does not support WCDMA or UTMS. The the other version uses the Snapdragon 800 chipset and is WCDMA compatible. So 3G will work outside of China. The reason I differentiate between these two versions is the WCDMA version is not currently available as of December 15 2013.
Wifi supports 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
The operating system is MIUI. A heavily customized version of Android 4.2.1. It has a totally different "feel" from mainstream Android. It also has it's own "Cloud" support for backups and online storage.
Battery life is 30% more than the Mi-2s
Memory is LDPPR3
Google search, Maps and email are supported, but NOT included. They must be added separately.
Not bashing your specs listing, just clarifying for those outside of China that are considering purchasing this phone.
raymond, 14 Dec 2013i,ve already ordered xiaomi mi3 about 3 months ago but it hasn't arrived yet. how come?The production isn't as fast as Samsung's or Apple's so you have to wait a little while for this monster. I'm sure it will arrive.

I been fortunate to actually get my hands on one of these. Even in China right now, these are hard to come by. Judging by some posts, I think some have decided to make this into money making opportunity by reselling at a premium. Regardless, the phone seems to work great. Very fast, system is efficient, battery life seems very good. Nothing bad to say about it at this point except you can't expand memory with SD cards.
i pre-ordered 16GB on xiaomiworld.com,they said they will send next two weeks

Anonymous, 25 Nov 2013Saw in xiaomi website that it is on quad core nVidia Tiegra 4 chips.Tegra version only for China because only supported 3G network (TD-SCDMA) in China. Qualcomm version supported 3G WCDMA will be released in December (still rumor). Be carefull when buy Xiaomi Mi-3 now, 3G network not working in most country
