Xiaomi is getting more and more known as a brand with good quality and pretty much high-performance mobile devices.¬†Model Redmi 3 Pro¬† (check here)¬†is not the exception and although it does not belong to the newest models, it can still pleasantly surprise. When I was deciding on the July 2016 what brand and model should I buy, I was trying to avoid Samsung and iPhone mobile devices. On the other hand, I have to admit I had almost no knowledge about Chinese¬†company Xiaomi and its offer. However, after the recommendation of my friend I started to examine their products and very soon I found out that you would just hardly find such great ratio between performance-quality and price. No wonder then, mobile phones from Xiaomi belongs to top low-end phones on the market. I was looking for something with a¬†decent hardware, big screen, and low price. One would maybe say it is impossible, yet here I came across model Redmi 3 Pro. After brief consideration, it was already in my “Shopping Cart” and on the way to me.
BATTERY LIFE & CHARGINGIf you properly follow the rules of charging and take care of the battery as you should, ¬†then here you absolutely don't need to worry about its life. In the beginning, it was enough to charge the battery once every 3 days, of course, it depends on how much you use it. It has¬†¬†4100 mAh battery and the capacity 132% higher than the previous model. Although the battery is powerful and the body is from metal, the whole device is pretty much light. Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro supports quick¬†recharging ¬†5V / 2A ¬†so you can get at 50% of battery in like 1 hour.
PERFORMANCE & DESIGNHere comes the most important part of why I have decided to buy Redmi 3 Pro. It has high-performance processor¬†Qualcomm Snapdragon 616¬†with 8 cores – 4 with 1,5 GHz and 4 with 1,2 GHz¬†frequency. You will also find 3 GB RAM. Simply said, this means you can start any application immediately¬†t without wasting any extra second. Even though many times I have several applications running in the background, the phone works just right. 5 ” HD display with resolution 1280 x 720 has 16 million colors and automatic optimization of brightness thanks to the Sun Screen Effect Technology. I used to make use of this technology during the summer but it can be turned off so currently, I have it set to the highest possible brightness. Although¬† I haven't had any problem to operate the phone with one hand, the phone offers a possibility to turn on the one-hand mode for easy¬†manageability. However, I¬†personally never used it.
STRENGTH & DURABILITYHere comes the problem.¬† I was satisfied till recently when I started to notice some kind of red grid of pixels in the middle of the display. This, however, is visible only on a black background and might be caused by the fact I dropped the phone on the floor. Here comes the problem, although the body of the Redmi 3 Pro is made of metal after it was dropped on the ground from approximately 1,5 meters,¬†back side has buckled a bit. Since then, there is one little spot on the display that just hardly¬†responds to the touch although¬†the display itself is not ruptured at all.
