RN3 is a good phone on it's own, RN4 with SD625 also is good, not as powerful, but much more power saving. I notice only gaming on heavy 3D games will notice the difference (obvious frame drop, especially on highest graphic setting), otherwise cannot notice anything drop in performance, casual gaming is on par (Clash Royale, Clash of Clan)
RN4 also will get Android 7.0, unlike RN3 which may only stuck at Android 6.0. Otherwise, everything is an upgrade from RN4 from screen, speaker, battery life.
If you try to compare Oneplus and Lenovo, those won't come down to the cheap price of RN3 and RN4 offer. Believe me, I own RN2, RN3, RN4, those are very good phone on it's own, even overall performance cannot compete with high end phone, but their reliability and usability far surpass those high end phone.

Suggest you manually update your phone with MiFlash (so called fastboot method), search at en.miui.com.
If you buy from shop, ask the shop to help you flash to official Global ROM.

You should manually flash the phone to global ROM with MiFlash (so called fastboot method), guidance is at en.miui.com.
This happen to me when I first get my RN3 from imported source, from China, one year ago. I manual flash to official global ROM, then I get every OTA until updated to Android 6.0.
Hi I have just taken this phone brand new any one knows how to do the upgrades because it's on Android 5 version. Any easy way to do it. Because the phone won't do it it says try again. Wish you all the best!
[deleted post]And for RN3 miui 22.214.171.124 , miui 126.96.36.199 and miui 188.8.131.52 will be suspended.
my journey with RN 3 started in march 2016 and now unfortunately ended last month due to the mobile being stolen in a crowded bus, it was nightmare as i was depended on the phone ,made me realize ,when you are out on streets,make sure your mobile is secured in your pockets and look out for suspicious characters trying to pass by you or getting close to you,i failed to be attentive as i was busy getting the ticket when this happen
Almost bought RN 4 but decided against it as its already in market since 6 months and not fan of SD 625 chipset as it was not sucessor to 650 ,i guess i am moving on to different brand as MI failed to bring better phone than rn 3 this year ,its either one plus or lennova for me now
The-Artist, 02 Aug 2017True that.. MIUI 184.108.40.206 is the worst ROM ever released.
Here's a list of bugs in MIUI 8.5.3.... moreWhy not trying this one?
Rinku, 03 Aug 2017How can I update my note3 to Android6.0?You can update it through OTA in your settings.
Bittu, 04 Aug 2017I think rn3 doesn't get Android NAgreed Xiaomi has make announcement which phone gets Nougat and Redmi Note 3 is not inclueded. For me I will wait Android Oreo custom ROM from Lineage OS. Google will release Android Oreo in August 2017.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2017Xiaomi has fresher and trainy developer team.Do u mean fresh graduate
been using it for 10 months. No trouble so far. Cannot update to Miui 8.2 and stuck with android 5. Other than that, good reliable economical phone. This phone set new standard for me in term of what battery life should have been.
Redmi Note 3 is a fantastic smartphone but MIUI updates is pathetic mostly come with a lot of bugs. Perhaps Xiaomi dev team can improvised their works on this MIUI updates, I love this phone but cannot stand the MIUI updates bugs. Please give us a good updates without bugs. Thank You.
