Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime

1 / 13

Xiaomi introduced the Redmi 3s Prime as a sub 10K device, but doing what they do best, the company is pushing higher price specification set into this tiny thing. The Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime’s most notable feature happens to be its 4100mAh battery, but the fact that the company chose to also give 3GB  of RAM along with 32GB of onboard storage is bound to ruffle some feathers. Typically we see 16GB of on-board storage paired with 2GB of RAM, but the Redmi 3s Prime doesn’t play by those rules. On paper, the phone seems like great value for money, but it remains to be seem whether it can deliver consistently over a period of time.

OUR VERDICT

We had some major initial hiccups with the Xiaomi Redmi 3s Prime, but an inconvenient of resets later, things improved. We even faced permission issues with some of our apps, but a software update pushed out by Xiaomi solved that issue as well. Over the last week of reviewing the phone, it finally became a stable device, free from little issues that cause big inconveniences. The phone is actually a really good deal for the price of Rs. 8,999 and it’s a great device for a very large audience.
