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.

The GOOD, BAD & UGLY Things About Xiaomi Mi3

Hey guys, I did manage to have an early access and got my hands on Xiaomi's flagship model Mi3 day before yesterday and thought I'd share my experience with others. This is 100% my experience and 100% true. So, let's begin.

The Good Stuff About Mi3

What I liked most about Mi3 is the fantastic display, awesome user interface, and amazing performance. The device is faster than you'd imagine - my previous phone is Samsung Galaxy 7"7 imported; games and apps that hang in that phone are playing ...

Amazing phone at affordable price

Some of the unique features you will not find in any other smartphone of this price range:

1. MIUI: Comes with kitkat out of the box. MIUI is a very popular ROM with lots of free themes. So you can customize your phone and give it a new look every day!

2. Super Fast: It has the same processor as Nexus 5. Till now i have not seen any lag.

3. Primary Camera: Camera quality is average! But the primary camera has some unique features like QR scanner. I have first time seen this in any stock ca...

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...
