Phone is really good, I have gold version, very elegant, camera is excellent, battery was beast, 9-10 days, but suddenly stopped to work over night, change it with opening the phone but new one also works only 3 maximum 4 days what is half it had worked, don't know whats the problem, probably calibration needed but non calibration program is good..
Aleks2x, 03 Aug 2018How is your experience with it? I can see there is version 14.1 nowI have it almost 2 years, bought in november 2016. Excellent battery, lack of space if you use 2 sim cards. When you have less than 2 GB of memory left it slows a bit. So, use this phone with one SIM card or throw out of phone all unnecesarry photos, video clips and similar data if you use it with 2 SIM cards. I will buy it again becose I move all photos and clips on Xiaomi cloud to clear the phone.
still best body size phone with good battery. all newer phones expect that my fingers have grown few centimeters taller.
i thought of buying this phone back then .. but the store said it is out of stock .. so i took 3S prime instead ..

Anonymous, 28 May 2018what is your Android version??? My android version is 5.1.1 LMY47V and MIUI Global 188.8.131.52
I bought Redmi 3 in November 2016 in Macedonia. Most of the apps were very slow or were crashing. I was constantly receiving ads, during every use of Internet. I never received update although I was using MIUI 7. However I found out that I was not using official software from MI, so I gave the phone to the official dealership in Macedonia, Hi Store and they installed new official software, so now I have MIUI 9.5. The phone works perfectly as a new one and I only regret that I didn't installed new software previously. Check your software, maybe that is your problem. This phone is a steal for the money.
I've been using this phone several 2 years and i'm so in love with it. till one day i lost it :(

AnonD-721149, 08 Dec 2017Using this phone since 2016 and still smooth and working perfectly.using MIUI 7 or MIUI8?
Using this phone since 2016 and still smooth and working perfectly.
I'm using this device since 2016. Still working smoothly. MIUI has awesome interface & features. Just love it..
I've been using this phone for around a year now and honestly, it's killing me. I am unable to use apps such as Facebook, Snapchat, Google Maps or even Chrome (even with just one tab open) without it heating up and crashing with every 5 seconds of use. Recently, it froze and restarted while I was trying to answer a phone call. This is with no other apps open! Anyway, if you don't want a phone that freezes and restarts randomly (at least for me), don't get this phone.
Bought it 1 year ago, installed MIUI Global, now MIUI 9 Global Beta 7.9.15 ROM because of default ads and apps when I purchased the phone. But after that, it's an excellent phone. Good performance, runs apps nicely (games as well in AA), no bugs, camera is good for the price, lots of info in phone, lots of apps you might need like weather that uses accuweather and integrates nicely, converters, systems scanners and storage space freeing apps, torch, virus scanner, you don't really need any tool apps, all default and easy on resources and not in your face or showing as notifications or ads. Very good and bright display light, battery is still very good after a year. Only annoyance is, if you use a lot of apps then storage space will not be enough. You can solve this with SD card, but then I think you lose one SIM slot, which I personally couldn't afford. For nicer UI, I use ZenUI launcher and togher with the MIUI all looks very nice. And is cheap. Recommended.
