Design and Display

Everyone loves the design of the Redmi Note 3 which boasts a premium metal build, The Redmi 3S also sports the same metallic build and feels great in the hand. The Smartphone is available in 3 colors, Silver, Rose Gold and Grey.

Below the screen is three capacitive keys that communicate to Menu, Home, and Back. The bezels of the Redmi 3S are thin, and there is a metallic band around the front of the phone that prevents the handset from getting scratched. The power and the volume rocker buttons are placed on the right of the handset. On the left of the phone is a Hybrid Sim card slot that can house one sim card and MicroSD card or two nano sim cards.

The phone measures 139.3 x 69.6 x 8.5mm and weighs 144 grams. Redmi 3S sporting a 5-inch display fits perfectly in the hand and also in tight pockets, Xiaomi Redmi 3S is one of the best compact smartphones and is a perfect investment for your money.

On the top of the Redmi 3S are a 3.5mm audio jack and an IR blaster that you can use to control various electronic devices from within the smartphone. There is a microUSB port placed at the bottom of the phone.

Only the 3GB / 32GB variant of the Redmi 3S comes with a fingerprint scanner. The Redmi 3S unlocks just in 0.3s when you tap your finger on the fingerprint sensor that is located on the back of the handset.

Coming to the Display, the Redmi 3S sports a 5.0 inch IPS LCD display and a 720p HD (720 x 1280 pixel) resolution. The pixel density is 294 which is good for a 5-inch screen. The viewing angles are also good.

Xiaomi acted very wisely not to sport a FULL HD display in the Redmi 3S. The 1080p Display is good for the 5.5inch screens and above.

Battery Life – Power at Last

Xiaomi focused more on improving the Battery life of their smartphones, and they equipped a Huge 4050mAh battery in Redmi Note 3.

Even though the smartphone measures 5 inches, Xiaomi Manged to equip a much bigger Non-removable Li-Ion 4100 mAh battery in the Redmi 3S and they promised that the handset offers a 2-Day Battery Life for Moderate usage. The super-high-density battery of the Redmi 3S is 2X larger than the previous models.

Even though the Redmi 3S boasts a 2X larger battery than the Redmi Prime 2, the handset measures 10% thinner than it.

Performance

Under the Hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 1.1 GHz Cortex-A53. Adreno 505 is the Graphics processor used on the phone. Since the Redmi 3S sports a 720p HD display, there will be no much load on the GPU.

Redmi 3S scores 2888 points in the Geekbench Multi-Core benchmark performance test and scores 9401 in 3D Mark ICE Storm GPU performance test. As I mentioned earlier, the phone is available in two models, 2GB Ram with 16GB of internal storage and 3GB Variant with 32GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card. The 3GB /32GB variant is named as Redmi 3S Prime.  The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 7 on the top.

Camera

The Redmi 3S has 13 MP Phase Detection Autofocus rear facing camera on the back and a 5 Megapixel f/2.2 camera on the front. The Aperture size of the Rear camera is f/2.0, and it is capable of recording 1080 HD videos @30fps.

Camera features include Geo-tagging, HDR, panorama, touch to focus, face and smile detection.

Connectivity

The Redmi 3S is well decorated with the connectivity features that include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 820.11 b/g/n, FM Radio, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS + GLONASS and hotspot.

We don’t know when the Redmi 3S is listed at Amazon. But, the Redmi 3S Prime and the Redmi 3S model will be available via open sale at Flipkart, Amazon. and Mi.com on 12th May 2017.

    • Totally Agreed with Manish,Mi and flipkart is fooling people,in 10 sec it got out of stock on 14 sep.Its waste of time.How all mobile nearly 80,000-90,000 gets sold out in 10 sec on both these sites?Please dont fool people,next sale on 21sep and same thing you will notice.

      • I totally agree…I sat from 11.30 am onwards. Didn’t get the option of “Buy” Flipkart seem to learn from IRS (Tatkal System) 🙂

    • Aapne bilkul sehi bola Manish Kori Bhaiya!. I’m agree with you.
      Maine V Online pe Bahut try kiya Redmi MI 3S ke liye. But Mila nehi. Next din Dekha toh hamare side Dukan pe 1500.00 + krke bech rahe hain.
