Postby weyw » Fri Feb 21, 2014 9:52 am

Redmi is making themselves seen/heard on radio and news...

So are the specs good for sec school/poly/uni students who are on tight budget and wanna get a smartphone?

Am interested in getting it if its real good...

DH bought. Not bad. Doesn't feel cheap. Dual sim card, 8Mb camera. DH only dun like the memory so little (though can upgrade via sim card). Packaging is simple and nice. Overall, $169, cannot complain. Extra battery available at $9.90.

Received mine recently. So far so good ... so long my latest games are in, can sms or call will be fine. Like the slightly bigger screen though since I am sort of upgraded from iphone 4 to this one. Kekekeke ...

Speaker is not that good. Hates the power button which is at the right side as it frequently disengages the phone itself (not user friendly). Loved the touch home button (after being absolutely annoyed by Apple's) . Overall its a steal and so far so good :)

I got Mi3 for my mum several weeks ago from Starhub.

Its a combination of Apple (hardware) and Andriod phone.(software).

The battery cannot be removed
SIM Card need an ejector to remove
No SD Card slot.

So far performance not bad for a phone that is half price of S4 and Iphone 5C :evil:
