It uses IPS technology to deliver stunning color consistency with easy viewing from any angle and allows you to take Full HD videos. The Mi 3's backlit display is fused to the touchscreen, giving you rich black detail and vibrant colors.

    This is a screen technology used for LCDs (liquid crystal displays) to boost the phone's response time, viewing angle dependence and color reproduction.

The phone also has 120 laser-cut speaker grills and a metal-reinforced USB port. The cover is water-resistant and has a soft microfiber lining which protects the phone from end to end.

    True and Un-Biased Review of the Mi3.

    Phones that I have used in the past -
    Samsung Galaxy S4
    Moto G
    Nokia N8.

    Flipkart -
    If you are a first time buyer, dont worry i have bought at least 15 to 20 products like Mi3, Moto G, Moto E, Induction cook top, Foot-ware, Mixer grinders and so on, Flipkart sells all genuine products and it has easy return policy, so dont you worry.
    I got the phone very quickly and in good package.

    Decision Advice :- All you need to know about Mi3 ; SOLUTION for Screen black out during Calls.

    Hello All,

    I started looking for a smart phone when my wife lost her phone and my eyes fell on Mi3 advertised on Flipkart. I am currently using Nexus 4 and this Mi3 is direct competition to Nexus 5 in terms of Specs or its even better in some aspects like camera and Battery capacity. Being skeptical, I still registered for purchasing this mobile as i trusted flipkart brand name.

    Here Goes a long awaited Review Xiaomi(Shao-Me) MI3.

    The Story about me and MI 3

    I was in a dilemma to buy this phone. I was just waiting for S5 price to drop.
    I received an email from Flipkart regarding the MI phone stating that I can buy this phone one day prior to Sale date i.e 21st July

    Even while buying, I was bit confused to decide.

    MI3 first impressions

    While the pros are many in this phone there are also a few cons.I will list them up.
    1. sim card tray is notoriously difficult to open. I almost thought of returning it back as i couldn't open the tray. however few attempts and a lot of force later it finally opened.
    2. the phone gets heated up if you keep it in charging and update the software at the same time
    3.the back looks premium but due to the flat design.. it tends to slip

    Also please note the proximity sensor works when you r...

    Issue resolved: changing my ratings after using the phone for a week

    In my previous review, I mentioned that I was facing a problem while calling (wasn't able to hear anything through the earpiece). I reported the problem to flipkart as well as to xiaomi customer care. For the last few days, I was in constant touch with them, and to say the truth, I'm pretty impressed with their willingness to help.

    First, we tried to solve the issue by tweaking system settings, but when that didnt help, they suggested that I should go for a replacement. They replacement was...
