Xiaomi Mi Note 3 Review
The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is Xiaomi first Note device with the trending dual rear cameras. Released in September 2017, the device is supposedly the improved version of its predecessor, the Mi Note 2. It offers one of the most advanced cameras on any Xiaomi smartphone ever created.
Xiaomi Mi Note 3 DESIGN
The design of the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is out of this world, it is by far the best looking Xiaomi smartphone I’ve ever seen. Its aluminium frame back was majestically designed and curved to fit perfectly in your palm. The dual camera was strategically placed at the top left, vertically with the flashlight. Xiaomi still left the fingerprint scanner at the home button for easy access. The Mi Note 3 is available in Black and Blue colours only.
Xiaomi Mi Note 3 DISPLAY
Even though it was released the same month with the bezel-less Mi Mix 2, the Mi Note 3 still has many bezels. It sports an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen and its 5.5″ screen size has just 73.8% screen-to-body ratio. But not to worry, the 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution and 401ppi should deliver stunning visuals. The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 4.

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
The Mi Note 3 houses the Qualcomm MSM8956 Plus Snapdragon 660 chipset and an Octa-core (4×2.2 GHz Kryo 260 & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 260) processor. Be ready to experience an ultra-fast device, as it also packs 6GB RAM. Gamers, are you thinking what I am thinking? With an Adreno 512 Graphics processor, be ready to enjoy high-quality games with no hanging.
For internal storage, Xiaomi created two versions, the standard one with 64GB ROM while the bigger and more expensive version packs 128GB. Now you can save more files and think less of which files to delete. Xiaomi Mi Note 3 runs on Android 7.1 Nougat OS.
Xiaomi incorporated the trending dual rear camera to the new Mi Note 3, just like the Mi Mix 2. The dual 12MP + 12MP rear camera on the device has 2x optical zoom, phase detection autofocus and dual-LED (dual tone) flash. Capture the most amazing portraits with this device, and unleash your photography potential. The improved 16MP selfie camera with 2.0 µm pixel size, takes selfies that the typical 16MP camera can’t.
Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is powered by a 3500mAh Non-removable battery, with fast battery charging feature (Quick Charge 3.0).
