Redmi 3S

The looks are quite in tune with what has been the consistent feature with the RedMi series. The device is crafted with high quality premium metal body. The USP of the phone - as has been claimed by the company - is its extra large battery. The 4100 mAh battery is said to give a backup of two days.

The RedMi 3S is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octacore processor that clocks at 1.4 GHz. In fact, it should be noted that the smartphone is the first in India to use the Snapdragon 430 processor. The Adreno 505 GPU makes it one of the best devices to play high end games.


The smartphone carries a 13 MP rear camera that has phase detection feature. The f/2.0 aperture lets you take better photos by letting more light into the sensor. The PDAF feature ensures better focussing. The camera has HDR and HTT features as well. The camera supports 1080p HD video recording. The front camera reads 5 MP in terms of resolution and works equally good.

The RedMi 3S has a 2 GB RAM coupled with a 16 GB internal storage. You can expand the memory by another 128 GB using a micro SD card. However, please note that you will have to sacrifice the dual SIM functionality if you want to use the expandable memory option.

The connectivity features of the device are 4G connectivity along with WiFi, Bluetooth and microUSB. The phone has a dual SIM functionality, however, as said before you will have to make a choice between the dual SIM option or the expandable storage option.

The phone has been officially launched in India on August 3, 2016. During the initial days the device will only be available on Flipkart and the official Mi Store. The smartphone will come with a price tag of Rs. 6999.
