Usually the Redmi line is Xiaomi's lower end smartphones while the "Mi" series is for higher end phones. However, the the Redmi Note 3 has transcend that notion. The Redmi Note 3 look, feels and performs like a premium device. The great thing about it, you'll not be paying for a premium device. For the price the features of this phone is just awesome. It has infrared emitter, call recording, and a lot of software interface that's included.
The power-horse is Snapdragon 650 processor hexa core SoC, just imagine the performance it can give you. Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chipset is really impressive, performance is comparable to Qualcomm’s last generation hex-core Snapdragon 808.
It can record UHD 4K videos with a third-party app. The display is 5.5inch fullHD IPS LCD with pixel density of 401ppi. The pictures look natural and it has a good viewing angles.
It has Sunlight Display technology too which is seen from their Mi4/Mi4i line. Sunlight Display makes adjustments to the display at a pixel level so that you see a balanced image in bright outdoors.
Call quality on the Redmi Note 3 is excellent and the earpiece speaker is sufficiently loud even outdoors.
The device is equipped with 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The camera at the back has phase-detect auto-focus function which is really good in bright environment, however it doesn't do well in low light.
