For the price of this phone, you can't go wrong. Slick, fast interface, powerful hardware, I will never be buying a Samsung / LG / Sony at 3-6 times the price again. Screen is a little sub standard on paper, but you won't even notice it, camera is pretty average, but again, not a deal breaker. Battery life is fantastic. Great build quality. Trust me, read the online reviews, this phone is great, basically the same guts as a Galaxy S6. Don't get ripped off by big brand names.

I bought this phone for my mum as her old one broke, but decided to give it a "test drive" before I handed it over - my daily driver is a Galaxy S6. Really amazed by this phone.
Main concern to most people will be the 720p screen, but I barely noticed any difference when compared with my S6, which is a quad HD screen. Also love the fact that I can keep it on max brightness without worrying about my battery dying all the time - a real issue that I battled with on the S6, and a brighter screen is always a pleasure to look at :). I got about 2 days of battery use with this phone.
The OS is good, simple,it does seem like they try to copy iOS ALOT, but this will appeal to some people I guess :)
Camera is decent, good in well lit areas, not so good in low light - pictures tend to be very noisy in the dark, but then again this is a 3 grand phone.
If I'm being really picky, the only "quirk" I noticed in my use was that it was abit difficult to expand notifications when they are bunched together in the notification tray, for instance, If I received 2 whatsapp messages,the gesture to expand them so I can read each overview individually didnt seem to work all that well - I put this down to an OS thing, as the touch screen response itself has been good. Or maybe I just need to get used to the gesture.
All in all it is an excellent buy, I have used many high end Samsung,LG, Nexus phones over the years, and this phone has really made me question the high pricing of these.
Compared with other models in the Xiaomi range, I would say the best value for money would be the Note 2 - I would have gotten that, but my mum doesnt like using a large phone. I wouldnt bother with the Mi 4 in this range - better overall specs, but lacks LTE, dual sim, and more importantly, you cannot extend the 16gb of internal memory it comes with - there is no microSD slot.

LIKE: Fantastic battery life, Solid build, dual SIM, 3GB RAM, Top specs for the price
DISLIKE: Only available in good, can't find a screen protector although it came with a free cover, Muiu launcher (but I replaced it with Nova)
I have recommended this phone to family friends. Great buy

Performance is great and build quality is great. The screen is clear, the phone comes with a protective case, the fingerprint sensor works flawlessly. The camera is good, and I am very satisfied with my purchase. Highly recommended mobile.
The only unpleasant things are:
*It isn't pre-rooted. Which means you either void your warranty by flashing a custom ROM (seems complicated with this phone) or you do not use your paid apps that require root access. I have opted for the latter option.
*The Android version is Moded. They have included some useful utilities but also taken away your app drawer. This means you are forced to have all your apps overpopulating your wallpaper and you have to organize them into folders to try and make your wallpaper look clean..

I cannot recommend this phone enough.Rather just see what the experts say. http://goo.gl/HCQd5F And at one 1/5 of a price of a Samsung Note 5.... this company is where my phone loyalties will lie for the forseeable future ... sick of being fleeced by "Premium Flagship" phones. (Oh yea and it runs an operating system not designed by thieves in suits.)

Excellent phone for the price. I'm enjoying it a lot. I charge is every 2 days under moderate use, phone performance is fast, finger print sensor works very well, camera is decent, screen and build quality is very good, feels good in the hand. I would highly recommend it. NOTE: I came from a Samsung Note 3 which is an epic phone, and i feel that this Xiaomi Redmi 3 is awesome compared.

Absolutely fabulous. Fast, massive storage, dual sim, and did not break the bank. Video playback HD and super clear. This brand is extremely popular overseas and when I took it to the computer guy he was very puzzled that I have a Xiaomi and that us when I found out that it is a fantastic phone and a massive bargain.

This phone performed great for about 3 weeks and then died. It refused to turn on again and didn't charge. After returning the product to Takealot, and asking for a replacement, the phone is now out of stock. This after importing a cover.
Alton, South Africa. 31 August 2016
Very very nice phone. I had a S5 and G2 and this one beats them both from a convenience and practicality point of view. The extended battery life, dual sim and decent performance, means I will keep this phone for a while. Definitely recommended.

Excellent smartphone! No hassles at all.

Really Good product and price
Phelelani, South Africa. 22 August 2016
Great camera, both front and back.
A bit sluggish dealing with some of the high intensity graphics in games.
Happy with the phone overall.

Brilliant for the price, best I would say
Vaughn, South Africa. 7 October 2016
Brilliant Device. This phone is incredible for what you pay. Sure the niceties such as Gorilla Glass are missing but for what you pay, there is nothing better. Battery gets me 3 days on normal whatsapp usage including phone calls and such. The camera is decent but if you have a shaky hand it shows in the pics. Other than the lack of Gorilla Glass and the lack of Image stabilisation. This is the perfect phone for this price, in fact I will go so far in saying that it is as good as some of the high end Samsung phones in value for money.
