Excellent value for money. Great specs for this price range.

I decided I will wait use the phone for a while before I rate it. It's been just over one month now and I am very happy with my phone.I had very good phones before, but I was tired of being locked into a contract. I wanted another good phone.
Awesome hardware, which makes the phone fast and very user friendly.
Software user interface (MIUI 8)
32G on board memory
Battery life is SUBLIME!
Great build quality
Very slippery. I would not recommend using it without a case! Ever! Bought this case from Takelot. http://www.takealot.com/tuff-luv-0-75mm-ultra-thin-tpu-protective-case-for-xiaomi-redmi/PLID42329375. I works very well and fits the phone perfectly.
Camera. Let me explain... when using the camera as normal it's not bad actually - honestly I was impressed with the images, since many people say it's terrible. It's not. However, forget about using the camera feature from within Whatsapp. All the pictures are out of focus and blurry. Fortunately an easy way around it, is to use the camera as normal and then share to Whatsapp. Perhaps a firmware update will rectify that.
That's why I rate the phone 4 stars, losing one star for the poor Whatsapp pictures. In short, it is a great phone! Will I buy one again? Without a doubt. I love my Xiaomi 3S.

Ordered this for a friend and helped load apps and games for him and I must say, this phone has impressed me. For the money, it's a steal and the Android software with the iPhone design is rather nice. While the camera isn't the best, something had to be sacrificed for what is an amazing product with loads of storage, battery life and power under the hood. Highly recommended if you don't mind an unknown name and don't need all the cosmetic extras the more expensive phones have.

Great phone for the price with good specs. Only negative so far - it has no quick dial facility.
Jaco, South Africa. 10 April 2017
Excellent phone for the price. Battery lasts virtually forever. All systems work brilliantly and can run all the applications for everyday use. The photo quality is really good. I have seen reviews that complain about the camera quality. Remember this is a phone at a very reasonable price, if you want extraordinary photo quality, buy a camera. The only downside is, to get to the SD card the SIM must also be removed and you need the supplied tool for that.

If your looking for bang for buck then this is it.
Fingerprint scanner is highly responsive
Sleek Premium feel and look
Great battery life - easy 2 days normal usage
Soft-touch buttons dont light up at the bottom
Fingerprint scanner is at the back (you have to pick up the phone to unlock or enter code)
I'm not sure if the camera has image stabilizing feature
Having such a big battery means it takes a while to charge fully on a standard charger that comes in the box
Screen could do with a bit more ppi but still not really a con
Overall you wont find better value for money currently.
David, South Africa. 10 January 2017
hardware wise this phone is great. battery is amazing as it goes happily for 2+ days. The build quality is also really nice, however it is very very slippery. getting a cover is absolutely essential.
Software wise it uses MIUI7, upgrades to MIUI8 and feels a little like an iphone with that skin but retains the android logic and customizability. They have a battery saver option that they recommended. Don't use it. It closes apps and limits background activity so some accounts won't sync (even if you add the app exceptions), worst was the closing and disabling of the alarms. My battery lasts 2+ days without the battery saver, so it's not needed. MIUI8 is currently in developer rollout so I'm hoping it'll get better with time.
Ultimately it is a brilliant phone for the price.
Enrique, South Africa. 21 February 2017
Phone works rather well. I've changed to this phone after my Nexus 5 broke. No issues so far and I've had it as my main driver for over a week. Looking forward to unlocking the phone whilst maintaining warranty too.

Awesome phone! Great battery life! Good gaming performance.
Tim, South Africa. 27 January 2017
Best bang for buck in that price range. Good hardware, nice build.
The ui is a bit of an IOS rip off but you can always load a custom rom if you don't like that.
Only nitpick so far is that bluetooth doesn't seem to work too well with older devices (can connect but lags terribly), newer devices no problemo.
All in all a great phone, and a bargain at that price.
Johan, South Africa. 23 March 2017
Pros:Superb battery life. Can easily go for a full day with heavy use. 2 to 3 days with low usage. Snappy OS with little nice features.
Cons: The navigation buttons on the bottom does not lit up which makes it a bit of a challenge at night.
For the price point you'll not find a better phone.
Gerard, South Africa. 30 December 2016
I thought I'd wait a few weeks before commenting.
I've owned a lot of phones and this is definitely one of the best.
The specs are great, the 3G RAM helps and the MIUI ROM is also good with a few nice features.
Dirk, South Africa. 27 February 2017
Great battery life.
Hens, South Africa. 28 February 2017
Love this phone. Absolute value for money. Battery life is insane
Frans, South Africa. 28 January 2017
Had this phone over a month now and would highly recommend.
Dual sim with all networks and dual 4g slots.
Incredible battery, best I've ever had
Has all the sensors you need
Phone overheats while charging and is not quick charge, so it takes about 3 hours to fully charge.
Slightly thicker than the average phone because of the huge battery.
Camera is sacrificed for the price. It takes good pics, but don't expect too much from it.
I've moved from an LG G4 to this and I'm feeling no performance difference, and with Google launcher it's as good as any flagship
Doron, South Africa. 8 December 2016
A problematic product . Returning it
Thaveshan, South Africa. 15 February 2017
Camera is not cool. Worse than VGA remote function, only works on certain brands
Robert, South Africa. 21 December 2016
Awesome phone, quick, excellent battery life, comparable to high end phones.
Hendrik, South Africa. 22 February 2017
Great device for price.
Smitesh, South Africa. 23 February 2017
Great value for money and good build quality.
Camera not that good but still a great package.
Matthew, South Africa. 13 January 2017
Gideon, South Africa. 15 February 2017
Great battery life. Nice interface. Ok camera. Loudspeaker is a bit soft. Finger print unlock works well and is convenient. Does not come with a headset.
Mafunga Mutsakama, South Africa. 29 March 2017
This is the best phone in the world for that price, very strong battery

I agree with the reviews, the only disappointment is the camera quality. Absolutely dismal. I returned the phone to takealot a few weeks after purchase and was advised that they had set it to factory setting. But I honestly cannot take good pictures with this phone, I tried to take and it was all black except for a shiny blob of light.
I am a xiaomi fun but this time...not happy.
Niel, South Africa. 25 February 2017
The best phone I have ever had by far!
Took a while to set up the fingerprint ID, but it works beautifully.
Beats any Apple or Samsung phone when it comes to value for money.
Thembani, South Africa. 6 February 2017
This phone is so awesome and I am proud to have chosen this phone.
