The Xiaomi redmi Note 3 presents the Chinese manufacturer a Dual-SIM phone of the XXL class before. Succeeding the redmi Note 2 provides the phablet at first sight again an elegant design and promises decent performance at a reasonable price.
With this strategy are Xiaomi phones in the top 5 of the world’s best-selling arrived smartphone brands. But what has the redmi Note 3 incomparison – and it shows in the test as a viable alternative to more expensive smartphones of this size?
- Android 5.1
- 5.5 inch inch display, 1920 x 1080 pixels
- LTE, UMTS, GPRS
- Octa-core processor (1.95)
The IPS-LCD display are pictures again contrasty. Luminance and viewing angle stability can not compete with top equipment in the test, but are still good for everyday wear. The brightness regulates your phone automatically, with very good results. In addition, the brightness can be adjusted manually as usual. Overall, the display performance for this price class is top.
The redmi score 3 runs with the not very recent Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. In the manufacturer’s own user interface, MIUI sets as usual 7. Here you can in the imported device only between two Asian languages can choose and English. So who cares to, to use menus in German, should be buying think twice.
Also unusual: All Google Apps must be installed. But for preinstalled apps are reduced to an essence, which can affect the smartphone mainly tidier. So you should consider before ordering if you bothered by the fact that the setup of redmi Note 3 requires some more effort – or whether to even more pleased a largely “empty” Phone. This is a matter of attitude and plays no part in the test for scoring.
Who is worried when buying, if the Chinese smartphone also supports the German network frequencies, also must accurately consider: The redmi Note 3 is suitable for 3G for all German mobile bands. UMTS and HSPA operated smoothly.
LTE is also supported in this regard with a few limitations: the 800 Mhz frequency is not supported. This is used primarily in rural areas. With the4G tapes in 1800 and 2600 MHz, which are common in urban areas, the smart phone is compatible.
Exceptionally, no nano-SIM cards are in a fairly new and well-equipped Smartphone times required: The Note 3 is on the slightly larger Micro-SIMs. If both slots are occupied, both cards can query their network by incoming calls and SMS simultaneously. but you telephoned on one of the cards, the other is provided in the network unreachable.
Who desperately wants to be available on two phones at any time, then a conditional call forwarding must set up – like when the phone has just a no reception and forwards calls to another phone. This circumstance, however, is the time for all mobile phones in the test identical.
The redmi Note 3 has a Cortex-A53 processor, the octa-core clocked at 1.95 GHz. The device is in two memory variants available. In the standard version, it has 2 GB in the “redmi Note 3 Pro” version over 3GB RAM. So if the phone runs very smoothly and smoothly even in demanding applications.
Depending on the variant (basic / Pro), it is with 16 or 32 GB internal memory equipped. Too bad, however, that this can not be expand. BothSIM card slots are intended for the phone cards. A so-called “hybrid” use the second SIM space for a microSD is not possible.
Especially for its price range, the redmi Note 3 is equipped with an above-average battery. 4000 mAh ensure that under normal use up to two days endure without power source. If one uses his mobile intensive, can this still careless about the day before it has connected to the grid again.
Unlike its predecessor, however, the battery does not change here, however. Those who place great emphasis because of its own battery empties often faster than the next charging process is scheduled, could fall as a temporary solution to a separate battery pack.
