I am from Sri Lanka. I bought this phone one month ago. I have Redmi Note 3 Pro 32GB/3GB model. Well there were issues with mobile networks not being recognized properly. It is entirely due to the software as I found out. Just flash the latest Global ROM ( http://en.miui.com/download-301.html ) and you won't have any issues. Also the hardware is awesome. I didn't encounter any issues at all. Battery lasts for 1&1/2 plus days with general use (WiFi on) without gaming. No heating issues. Build quality is excellent. There is a thing as soon as you put a sim or two sim cards a prompt comes asking for activation. Well it costs the international sms charges once for a sim and its done. Sometimes as I have found out you can't use the network without activating the sim. If you use quality headphones/earphones the sound quality is superb too. It has a FM Radio which is recordable. Screen quality is great too. Most of the Heavy games are running smoothly. I couldn't find any fault with the phone so far. Of course it doesn't have NFC, DLNA and OIS. It has IR Blaster. Call quality is excellent. Camera is decent. Not very good under low light conditions. Fingerprint reader is flawless and fast and accurate almost all the time. Well guys this is my first post on GSMArena. I have had a good experience with the device so far . Try to ask any questions you have. I will reply asap. Cheers!

AnonD-531642, 10 May 2016I have also noticed these problems sometimesWhen it comes to fingerprint sensor. It was already slow by 2- 3 seconds with global 18.104.22.168 version. The 22.214.171.124 has not made any changes. My phone battery went down by just 1% on standby after 4 hours. So, no issues there. I haven't observed the animations part. So, no comments.

and down on the ground
then it will... moreThe phone can slip easily from your hands. You need to buy additional back cover or flip cover. It slipped from hands and fell face down on a marble floor from about 3 ft height. Luckily, nothing happened to the display.
Abhi D, 10 May 2016Update . 126.96.36.199 update is not very good. 1. Battery drain is more. 2. Phone heats more. 3... moreI don't face any such problems as you have mentioned. I feel the update has brought a lot of good changes.
