JakeMuss, 22 Aug 2016Same thing on 3S, fingerprint does not unlock phone at startup, I need to use pin..Same Problem Occured with Me
Bought this phone last month. This is, no doubt, the best phone at this price range. Specs are truly awesome.
HOWEVER (dont want to be a fanboy, though i really recommend average user to buy, there are few cons that i want to highlight).
Wtf xiaomi. My redmi note 3g camera is way better than this. Seems like they are downgrading the quality of the camera to maintain the low cost which kinda hurt the reputation of xiaomi as one of the best camera out there. It is still better than most phone, i have to give credit for that. But it is near impossible to snap pic of a moving object, or if you move even a muscle.
2. Touch sensitivity
Lets just say its not that sensitive. Whatever i scroll, almost everytime, it will detect that im clicking something after i scroll.
Yes, its awesome to unlock phone using fingerprint. But one of the reason why its at the back of the phone is to make it easier to snap photo/selfie. But nope, no feature to snap photo using fingerprint. At least not in global stable. (Read it somewhere that certain china roms are equipped with the feature, but seems almost excessive to change rom just to use fingerprint camera snapper.
Thats about it. To make it fair, allow me to highlight the good things about this phone.
Battery is a beast. Heavy user here.
Lightweight, design is awesome and seems luxurious.
Multitasking is da boom. 3gb ram bruh.
And thats it. Oh and its marshmallow, but with miui, the ui doesnt look much different than lollipop or kitkat. So i couldnt care less bout android version as long as its stable to use.
update to miui8 Global 6.8.18 beta all problem will be solved i have many problems when i update to miui8 than all problems solved ireally happy.
this is the link to download miui8 6.8.18 beta developer update
NOTE:---BEFORE UPADTE U MUST BACK UP YOUR DATA THROUGH PC OR ANY THING
how to update
1-Launch Â‘Updater' app on your device：
Click the Â‘Â…Â’ icon at the top-right corner, select Â‘Choose update packageÂ’, and choose the
file from the downloaded folder then follow onwards. it take 15-20minutes to update.
But one thing your phone must have minimum 30% of charge.
So I bought this phone on Flipkart flash sale and was pretty happy with at first. But I kept getting the Can't Correct Time: Unknown Error every time I connected to the internet. Plus the fingerprint scan glitch was also there when I started my phone. After 8-9 days of usage, the display completely crashed however battery and sim were functional. I got my replacement and this one has the same Can't Correct Time error. But I hope this one does not crash like the one before.

Redmi #s prime Users :-
Switch off ur phone..
den switch on it
den try unlocking the phone only with the fingerprint sensor not with patter/password.
In my case this is failing.. i have to give pattern to unlock.. then again i will lock the phone and give the fingerprint the phone will be unlocked as expected.
Could you all try this scenario in your redmi 3s prime.
Is it a bug or not just to clarify. As i have tried this in two phones.

Phone heating problem while seeing the vedios
Battery backup super
I don't understand why people who did not used it even once are posting comment about this phone and says this is not good phone i think they just simply jealous.
I have received this phone today just go for it.
Superb at this price range.
Camera Quality is BETTER than SAMSUNG 8MP CAMERA but lower THAN 13MP CAMERA.
which is really good for this price segment.
Performance wise it is much better than all other mobiles even in 20,000 segment.
