I am very sorry but this mobile phone has disappointed me, it has been the worst mobile phone I have had, it has not lasted, not even 2 years has started to break in on both sides and the battery runs out in less than 5 minutes. With the passage of time the phone does not even charge 100% even if you leave it all day and it stays frozen very often. It heats up quickly and automatically restarts

Anonymous, 23 Nov 2018Can't we expand memory by more than 32 gb? has anyone tried putting 64 gb or 128 gb memory card?I have try putting 64GB and 128GB card before, all can be detected and can be read and write.
However, here is the catch:
1. All your apps data cannot be installed to the Micro SD card, you can only store all media files to micro SD card, such as picture and video file.
2. For the Micro SD card to be detected, you can only format it to FAT32 file system format, which limiting the file size cannot over 4GB. Meaning the video file that is over 4GB cannot store to the Micro SD card, and this phone only read FAT32 formatted Micro SD card. No problem with the size of Micro SD card be it 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, all can be read without issue. You can put in the card and let the phone format it, then it can be used.

AnoM, 21 Nov 2018Whatever charger you use, turbo, normal, Qualcomm QC, dash charger, VOOC, Super Charger, they ... more1.5 amp is recieved by device from usb to micro-usb cable of charger.I personally use sony 5v 3amp charger and have no issue like heating burning etc.
In some cases charging ic burns when micro usb port is moist,wet. Otherwise no problem.
RIP Redmi Note 3 (MIUI 7 - MIUI 10.2). It will receive stable MIUI 10.2 next year January as the last one. For developer version, it is the upcoming MIUI 10 dev 8.11.22 as the LAST one.
Here is the link: https://www.xda-developers.com/xiaomi-mi-4-mi-4-redmi-note-3-pro-miui-china-ended/
For next year, I suggest you guys go and use custom ROM / stick with stable ROM if you still hold dear to it. OR it's just time to upgrade to Redmi Note 5 at least, but that comes with Anti-Rollback Protection being enforced. Another way is if you don't mind the NOTCH, get Redmi Note 6. Another option is to get 2nd hand Redmi Note 4 but that is also going the way of the dodo as possibly MIUI 11.x will be the last one.
So going by Xiaomi's software upgrade logic as of now, all Xiaomi smartphones and tablets as of current will only get 4 major MIUI updates which is down from the previous 5 major MIUI updates last year.
IMHO, now it's just another PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE for you to upgrade to a newer device every 3 years which costs more than what you have. Although I applaud Xiaomi for giving long MIUI software support for it's devices, I am guessing Google (ever since Treble) is FORCING smartphone OEMs like Xiaomi to only have 3 year software support, in line with Google's update policy.
When I try to use mi calendar, it tells I have restricted required permissions. What should I do to solve this problem?
Vishal, 17 Oct 2018Redmi is better than samsung in terms of performance Never hanged ever.
But samsung is better... moreWhich Samsung phone you are comparing?
This Redmi Note 3 using SD650 that inherit the 28nm processor, which of course will heat.
Samsung phone before that period is much overheated than this phone, because using 28nm processor.
Only the newer Samsung phone that utilized 14nm and 10nm are less heated, but still heated.
This phone also much more durable and much better performance if compared to similar priced Samsung phone, and much less heated too if you really compare side by side.
I'm not praise for the sake of praising. I'm ex-Samsung user too. After using Xiaomi smartphone, I never turn back.
Srikanth, 14 Nov 2018Can we use turbo charger to charge Redmi note 3?Whatever charger you use, turbo, normal, Qualcomm QC, dash charger, VOOC, Super Charger, they won't burn your phone. This Redmi Note 3 will only charge at 5V/1A even if you plug in to those fast charger.
So, no problem if you charging it with turbo charger, but it won't charge at turbo speed. It will just charge at normal speed.
sai, 20 Nov 2018worst update in my lyfFor a low end phone that is almost 3 years old, at least it got updates.
You want to compare to Google Pixel phone that is 4 to 5 times more expensive?
I don't care what others has said, this phone is the benchmark of affordable smartphone of that time.
It's specs reflect some of the high end things you can find on a high end smartphone such as 5.5" Full HD screen, metal back body, SD650 processor, 4050mah battery.
However, it is just sell for a fraction of price. I did not own them, but had help 5 people owning it and they all praise for the phone performance, something they never experienced at such low price. The updates to MIUI 9 improve the UI fluidity by miles and it is one of the smoothest smartphone around which just cost little compared to those high end.
The only thing now they complain is the aging battery life, which all smartphone suffer after few years, and I suggest a battery replacement will bring new life to it.
As for the storage problem, I think MIUI's Mi Cloud did hide some rubbish into the phone. Probably unsync and logout the Mi Account, then factory reset the phone, install back all the apps you want would restore the space you have long lost. Please don't use the Mi Cloud and your phone would be better. Then, turn off those user experience program, and turn off those ads service, then you got a very good phone at affordable price.
All in all, those phones are still working and are still impressively workable just for any task, despite it is only Android 6.0.1.
Tejasvi, 24 Oct 2018I am not gonna waste my time to even reply ignorant people like yourself who keep praising the... moreYou can't get the best of both world.
Here is the updating policy of Xiaomi, they only update Android version on the Mi series and Mix series.
They only promise one Android version update on Redmi series, the rest of the life time would be MIUI version updates, at least you get almost similar features across the Xiaomi smartphone even the Android version is not updated.
Now tell me which company even bother to upgrade their lower end series to include their latest UI feature? Google them self? Even Samsung didn't bother to update their own low end series, you get almost zero update from Samsung if it is their low end phone.
I admit they got their ads service, but it at least can be turn of partially, and only got ads in their own Xiaomi ads, just like any apps you use in Android, Facebook, Instagram, and all the free game you like to play on Android smartphone.
So, it is the weird logic on you. It is ok to have ads on those free apps as it is forced just to be there, but complain whole bunch when the phone UI itself has ads. You shouldn't use smartphone at all. Go back to the basic phone without any internet connection.
Then, you praise for it's hardware and cheap price, but never appreciate the MIUI.
Now tell me where Google the stock Android sell at such low price? Now Xiaomi even offer Android One smartphone at cheap price if you intentionally hate MIUI. Need I say more for a brand that really work hard to sell comparable quality product at low price?
If you can't afford Oneplus and Google Pixel smartphone, then stop bashing here. Not everyone are fond to stock Android experience. Many people just want a powerful, usable and affordable Android smartphone on normal everyday life usage.
There is nothing what MIUI can't do, and what stock Android can. There are also not many feature missing as it is just Android 6.0 compare to the latest Android 9.0.
You can always praising for the latest Android version update, but you won't fully utilize those latest features, as mostly 99% of time you are just using apps, not the feature from the Android itself.
