Brand new version of the Xiaomi Redmi 3 comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM plus possible sdcard, up to 128 GB (uses SIM 2 slot), posting this in relation to the hotukdeals.com/dea…748 as 5`5" may not be to everybody's liking. With the main difference of bigger RAM and ROM and lower spec CPU and screen resolution.

Comes with metal body, fingerprint scanner and large battery of4100mAh which should give good stand by times given smaller screen.

This version has been recently released and its the cheapest I can find. Gearbest have it for 189£.

Please be aware of possible VAT since its shipped from China, Aliexpress does not offer PayPal payment,in case of any warranty issues you would have to send it back to China.

NO 4G with O2, Tesco, Giff Gaff

And the most important these phones comes with some Chinese bloatware since they are sold for Asian market so it is recommended to load customized ROM - which is done at your own risk.

Still not the same phone. Think of it like the Samsung S7 and S7 edge - 2 different phones.
D'oh.

This is the standard Redmi 3. Darnit, Xiaomi, give your phones clearer names. Dozy old duffers like me cannot keep up....

Agreed. With a smaller screen and lower res but same size battery this shouldn't need charging much. I do wish Xiaomi would hurry up and launch here if only to make the average UK mobile purchaser realise just how much they are getting ripped off right now...

PS Heat added!

This is the 5in Redmi 3, not the note version. Not to be confused, this has 720p screen, the note is 5.5in with 1080p screen.
Very tempted with this. Really like the look if the note 3 pro but 5.5 inch is too big.

Currently have the mi4i which I love but can be a tad slow sometimes and battery doesn't always last the day.
Donthe extra battery and 3gb if ram could make this a perfect 'upgrade'
Anyone know what the camera is like on these ?
Note 2 prime is the best phone I've had. But the battery is shocking.

This has snapdragon though as opposed to the Mediatek.

Quite tempted by this.

I had the 16GB version for about a month, it was a great phone until the screen got damaged in my pocket kneeling down, not overly hard wearing as I've gone through alot of China phones and never had that happen! Another thing I didn't like is you need a little tool to open the sim card slot, you can't get the sim card or sd card without one.

So what you're saying is that if you have a little tool, this phone would be ideal? oO

​Alipay handles more transactions than PayPal. They are completely secure and will refund you if you have any problems.
Is anyone using a Xiaomi phone on Three? I've just ordered this but am a little concerned that 4G signal will be unreliable as Xiaomi don't support the 800mhz band.

You won't get any 4G signal. I have the Xiaomi Mi5 but luckily I am with Vodafone so have no issue with 4G.
Prefet the uleFone Power, similar price but Full HD, 6000mAh, f/1.8 camera. 2Gb/16Gb though but works for me.

Get yourself onto EE mate - their 16 GB/unlimited mins/texts for £19.99 pm 12 month sim only contract offer ends today - do a search. Either cashback through resellers to reduce down to 11.49/11.99 or direct with EE (poss £35 Quidco - mine tracked within an hour or so).

Huh? This the just released Pro version, not the standard version. The standard version has no fingerprint scanner, no 3gb/32gb etc
What UK networks will this work with 4G?
This device does work on three 4G no problem! I get huge speeds in my partners town but average in my location which is rural and no 4G. I've been using the Redmi Note since the 4G version. I'd urge anyone pay more and go for the Redmi Note 3 Pro Prime Snapdragon version as its a quality phone for the price imo, dual sim so can use 2 sims or and a memory card. I've always used three before for my network but over Xmas used EE with the 100GB of data offer, found it much better for coverage rural areas for very high speed, ended up taking that offer whats hot on here for the EE 12 month sim only deal, works great on EE. Don't bother with o2 or giff gaff with these devices won't get 4g

Also this seller I've used twice before for phones apart from new redmi not 3 I got elswhere. No issues and paid for DHL both times and got 4-5 days from ordering, very well sealed and air protected both times.

One thing to request when buying is them to flash global stable MIUI rom, you get ota updates. Chinese rom has plenty of bloat apps, no google playstore as default but easy to set up. Only recently has a global rom come to redmi note 3 (snapdragon version only) I had to flash mine but easy enough. Just looked and china rom only for the redmi 3. You still can change to english but I felt a pain setting up (download google apps from miui store then it installs all google stuff required)
Battery looks good, rest of the specs for the price, meh.

I also have the RN2 prime and my battery is good. I am not a heavy user though. I get a full day and perhaps 40-50% left.
What do you get and what ROM are you on?

No issue, because you can't use 4g on that phone on Vodafone

​3GB RAM 32GB ROM snapdragon with a fingerprint scanner for £120 is meh? Show me where else you can get that.
It is a nice little phone - a definite improvement over the previous iteration.

All the new Xiaomi phones have locked bootloaders, which can be a bit of a git if you want to flash a custom firmware (containing the Play store and with all the Chinese apps removed).

It seems that this seller ships with their own 'Shop ROM', which is a custom ROM suited for the western market. Sadly this will never see any updates, so you are best off flashing the xiaomi.eu ROM if you have the necessary skills.

I have written up some information on applying for a bootloader unlock and the process by which you can flash a Rom on my Blog - this was for the Note 3 pro. The difference here is that there are no Global ROMs available for the Redmi 3, so you will need to flash the xiaomi.eu ROM once you have unlocked the bootloader:

Well not quite no problem.. It's posted your comment 3 times so far!
I wouldnt get hung up on 4G,the phone will work fine with 3G which is faster than my 4G connection with Three at times.

I'm just on the stock one it shipped with. It's the prime version. I'm a fairly heavy user though.

Even if I leave it sat on a table with data still switched on, it'll eat battery.
