Review of Xiaomi’s Flagship Mi 3

Xiaomi’s smartphones are now not available in America; however, you might want to know something about its smartphones as its devices have become so popular around China in shortly 3 years. And now Xiaomi’s making its way to Singapore.


Xiaomi’s flagship phone, Mi 3, is an extremely slim and light device, measuring 5-inches with a thickness of a mere 8.1mm and weighing in at only 145g.

Software and Theme

The software design is where Xiaomi’s devices really shine though. Mi 3 comes with a customized version of Android OS. The Mi-3 runs on Android 4.3 optimized with MIUI version 5.

The UI is simple and easy to navigate, while you can easily customize the look of your phone via different themes. The themes are widely accepted by Xiaomi funs. In conjunction with its move into Singapore, Xiaomi released two new themes to commemorate the city, and there are many great-looking ones in the theme store available to download for free. They show up particularly well on the Mi 3 due to the high-resolution screen, and it’s a joy to be able to change the entire look and feel of your phone so easily when you get tired of its appearance.

Xiaomi takes great pains to tout the Mi3’s digital camera system. The company says it’s built from a Sony Exmor sensor that captures a top resolution of 13 megapixels. In addition, the camera uses a wide-angle 28mm format lens linked to a dual LED flash. Whether all this gear translates to a smartphone that snaps quality photos remains to be seen, but I admit that on paper, the Mi3’s imaging system sounds impressive.
