From your point, yes, it doesn't matter, just get a workable phone then issue solved.
But from technical point, it can be one of those issues mentions, the chipset, apps itself, and the Android system version.
I have encounter this issue regardless of brand, and chipset, probably the Snapdragon 650 is the less popular one that caused the problem.
My imported RN3 Snapdragon 650, however, doesn't suffer the issue you have.
(At least tested overall long distance, then also test with a Xiaomi phone called Mi Max with SD650 too, also no issue)
I suffer one of these on OPPO Find 7 phone, Snapdragon 801, it get disconnected in the middle of tracking the most obvious. Then won't update the location.(Both Waze and Google Map having the same issue, even other GPS apps)
The solution? You guess? I set my data to 2G, then everything work fine, no single disconnected. (I am also on U Mobile)
I also can't explain why.
Then, the problem only happen at some area, this also I very curious, at particular area, no such issue, even set to 3G.
Then at particular issue, it start having issue, and is very obvious repeated issue.
So, really, it may not be the phone issue, I believe is chipset (the processor).
Not because of America, but because of the chipset model compatibility.
I test with Redmi Note 2 with Mediatek Helio X10, also no such issue. (Issue happen regardless of brand)
Weird issue, I would say.
At of now, I retest the OPPO Find 7 phone, the gps issue is gone. I do nothing, just keep updating the GPS apps, that's it.
(That is why I believe part of the issue also on apps compatibility too, simply some apps just work fine on some GPS modem, or they secretly fix the issue in the updates)
I used to be redmi die hard fans , their high cp value always attracted me (pay less for higher spec), but xiaomi and snap dragon really disappointed me too much.
I used to had a redmi note 3 (snap dragon 650) last few month , and then it gps became not working (only 10% success rate to get connected ) and i thought is my phone faulty so i changed to asus zenfone 4 max pro (snapdragon 425), i straight away notice that it still same problem on the fresh new set , gps not working (telco is umobile malaysia), this time i suspect is telco problem , i tried change other telco(maxis), still the same . used for 1 week i decided to change to another new phone , redmi 5 plus (note 5), gps is really crucial for my works , i am grab car driver . but who know . what the heck, it end up still the same , fresh unit with gps not working!! trust me , i really tried thousand way to solve it like download agps app , airplane mode etc , all rubbish which not working. this time not only the gps not working , the call history also got problem (it will hang and wait about 30 sec to display the caller history and saved contact )
I gave up , i fed up so much with snap dragon, the dream about usa chipset quality is better become broken. this time i bought huawei with own processor kirin 960(honor 8pro ) , first day tested , all perfect awesome, gps connected in 5 sec ,tried longer for 1 week , speedy and responsive , no regret
to prove that , i bought another low end samsung which using own exynos processor for my spare phone , also working perfectly! what a bloody hell experience, i wont believe usa chip is better anymore , snapdragon and qualcom product will be permanent banned in my life , do you guys encounter same problem here ?
the gps not working and call history contact lag and delayed display(10-15s)
Any option to Stabilize the video while shoot using Redmi note 3 camera setting...
any EIS.. software.. I know Google Photos can stabilize the video after its shot..
But any cam app which is available which can stabilize video while shooting itself.
kindly let me know..

Satay , 27 May 2018Can I use 128 gb expandable memory in xiomi redmi note 3 Of course you can, the only downside is the file format on the SD card must be only FAT32 (even OTG pendrive must be FAT32, so when it say it can't read the OTG memory, it is because it is not FAT32).
This will limit the single file size to maximum only 4GB, it won't store anything bigger than 4GB. Of course, this would be non-issue if we just stored camera images, and short video recorded from the phone.
Normal SD card from the market already pre-formatted to NTFS file system.
So far tested up to 128GB also no problem.
Cearon, 14 Jul 2018I'd recommend AGAINST buying this phone. I've had this phone for two years now:
Bought it J... moreYours seems are just common issues on every smartphone, even iPhone and Samsung suffer on these without proper care.
For me, I have this phone for 2 years, China import, but I flashed it with Global ROM, now comes with proper Google Play, and frequent official OTA updates, everything works fine until today.
I am also abusing this phone and it survive the abuse nonetheless.
Bought when it is down to $150, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM, I have no complain so far.
(In fact, it is much less complain and headache than my previous more expensive Samsung which start obvious lag, auto restart for no reason after half years. This one stay stable until today)
I'd recommend AGAINST buying this phone. I've had this phone for two years now:
Bought it Juli 2016 from geekbuying (worst "service" ever, took them 3 months to get it to me while it was "in stock" and after a lot of emailing they "forgot" the papers which cost me a huge fine). I had software problems after a few months (LAG! So much lag!) and after less than a year it was so bad I needed a re-install because RAM memory will NOT properly empty so I effectively have about 600mb RAM.
The build quality is poor. The screen sticks out on top beyond the protection of the sides so a case is mandatory or it will break at the first fall. After about a year the aluminum back started warping and bent to the outside at the SIM slot and the volume and off buttons started responding badly too -probably because they were bent. The battery went bonkers; with 15C/60F degrees or less it suddenly "forgets" 30% battery life until I put it on a charger and the last 15% of the battery are almost dead as well. Meaning that with cold weather it suddenly dies at about 40% battery!
While the back is aluminum it doesn't do sh*t as the top and bottom of the back are actually plastic that is so flimsy that it doesn't protect the corners at all. A few months ago my screen shattered even with case and glass screen protector (the protector is still whole btw, and currently keeping the screen together) because the plastic of a corner broke UNDERNEATH my soft protection case.
I wish I could say that all this is because I abused the phone because I have huge muscles and went mountaineering with it or something, but nope unfortunately not. This has happened with CAREFUL use, I don't go to a gym and the only hikes I take are to the couch or supermarket.
So, good luck to everyone who still has this. The fingerprint scanner is absolutely great.
