  4. is the fingerprint sensor is available only on the redmi 3s prime as i have watched the website and they r telling that its is for redmi 3s only please reply me gogi sir

    1. I will be buying, I am waiting for the sale on 9th will have to go with Redmi 3S Prime for Rs. 8,999 as that will be first the Redmi 3S sale is late on 16th.

  5. Hi…Everyone !
    Which one is best smartphone in Redmi note 3 >Redmi 3s or Redmi 3s Prime?

    1. Ashok as always I am not among the privileged one to get the review unit before hand. Looks like I will have to buy the handset for the review.

  6. If it was Full HD display for 3S prime then it should be the best option in budget handset as of now redmi note 3 is the only best option i found

    1. No Corning Gorilla Glass….No such a glass protection mentioned by official source
      But…Xiaomi generally uses Dragontrail glass from AGC for their devices (except mi pad)

      it has similar characteristics as that of Corning Gorilla..( Scratch proof, good compressive strength but not shatterproof )
      But in certain aspects gorilla is superior ( Vicker’s Hardness rating is higher )

      Dragontrail is satisfactory enough. using my redmi 2 since a year and half. not even a single scratch. better to go with extra screen guard for safety..

      1. Its wifi band which we have been using for years.. of course it is good. 5ghz is upgraded wifi band which is in its initial phase in india.

    1. Why cdma? Within some months all cdma networks will be shutdown! Gsm is the only option in future so cdma will be useless.

    2. Yes it supports , if Redmi 3s supports TD-SCDMA band than it will sure support indian cdma operators

    1. you dont get the cpu and gpu performance in cpn lite ,it has mediatek processor,rdm 3s has latest chipset,just because of having extra 1gb ram and fingerprint sensor doesnt make it better phn than rdm 3s and dont forgot the 4100mah battey combined with efficient processor and a 720p display,it lasts 1day long even for the heaviest user

      1. Coolpad note 3 lite has a dedicated memory card slot whereas Redmi 3s uses a hybrid slot. For some people a dedicated sim slot is must in lower-mid budget range.
