Xiaomi Redmi Note was launched in the month of November but was made available through ‘Flash Sale’ from 2nd December and was priced at Rs. 8999 for the 3G variant and Rs. 9999 for 4G variant.
Unboxing The Xiaomi Redmi Note
As Soon as i opened up the box there was this huge Redmi Note sitting up on top and that glossy back cover disappointed me slightly as we all know it is prone to scratches and also slippery.
Moving further the contents include a 3200mAh Battery, USB to Micro USB Data Cable, Power Adapter and some documentations.
Do take a look at the User Manual if you are using MIUI device for the very first time. You can watch my full review to know more about the MIUI.
10 Multi Touch Points
Impressive fps score of 61.5
Impressive Score of On Quadrant Benchmarks
Antutu Benchmark Crossed 30,000 mark
I played Games like Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2 and Real Boxing 2014 and all of them worked fine without any issues. Only I would mention that you wont be experiencing the best gameplay when you play high end game in high graphics mode although medium graphics mode is just Perfect!
The Numbers are impressive when it comes to camera for this price but it is not the numbers that matter when you talk about camera it is results what matters and in the case of Xiaomi Redmi Note i am not too much impressed as the pictures are just decent but for this price even that decent is good!

Moto G 2nd Generation Unboxing- I found that it has the same package contents as we saw last year in Moto G unboxing it has the charger, earphones, quick start guide and warranty card and then I further had a In-depth Hands On the Moto G 2nd Generation.
Moto G 2nd Generation has 12GB of internal storage and around 450MB of Ram which was very low as it was after first boot and when you start using it and install Apps it will further go down and hence I was worried that it will affect performance. I will come to know about performance when i play High end games and so you need to stay tuned on my YouTube channel for that.
I also compared Moto G 2nd Generation with Xiaomi Mi3 and found out that Moto G has the same screen size but still it is bit smaller and comfortable to hold compared to Mi3 although Moto G is thicker than Mi3 but due to it’s curvy design fits in hand comfortably. Stay tuned for my in-depth comparison of Moto G 2nd Generation Vs Mi3 on YouTube channel (saurabh9022/AllAboutTechnologies).
Also I tested out benchmarks on Moto G 2nd Generation and got decent scores on Quadrant Standard, Antutu and Nenamark 2 Benchmarks, I got 10 Multitouch points on Multi Touch Tester and I have also shown hardware details using CPUz on Moto G 2nd Generation in this video.
Stay tuned for Gaming, Comparison and Full Review!

I Unboxend the Asus Zenfone 4 A450CG (Charcoal Black) and these were the Contents inside the box pack.
The package was very minimalistic as they are already offering a great value for money product at this price. Also Asus Zenfone 4 A450CG is a direct competitor to Xiaomi’s Redmi 1S but Zenfone 4 is priced Rs. 1000 more when compared.
Asus Zenfone 4 has a 1.2GHz Dual Core Processor with Hyper threading technology whereas Redmi 1S has a 1.6GHz Snapdragon Soc, also Redmi 1S has a 720P HD compared to FWVGA resolution (480 x 854) Display.
Is Redmi 1S better as it offers better for lesser value or spending Rs 1000 more is worth it I will find out when i get my Hands On Redmi 1S!

It feel’s good to hold in hand and it’s very comfortable for single handed usage. Also on top of it’s Full HD Display we have Gorill Glass 3 which gives extra protection against scratches.

UI and Usage : MIUI on Mi3
MIUI is altogether a different from Stock Android it looks great and you can customize Theme, fonts Lock-screens and what not from the Themes Application.
MIUI is the most stable and smooth UI i have seen till date it doesn’t even gets slow down when your available Ram is just 350MB i tried and open all HD games and Apps that i had and even after that it was Fast, Smooth and Responsive.
There are Tons of Hidden features that you will come across when you use i came across with many of them and they can’t be seen on many high end devices also like the Buttons section on Mi3 in settings is a great feature, we also have Do not disturb and many such features.
Call Quality, Speaker and Display on Mi3
Call quality is very decent the ear piece has average output but the Mic should have been placed somewhere else maybe on front as the other person can hear the voice but it’s not as loud as i would expect it to be. Overall it’s good no drop down’s and network issues!
Speaker quality is good it is clear although not too loud but listening music is fun and also on various earphones we get output accordingly, that you can see in Music App and select the kind of earphones you have and you are ready to go!
Display is the WOW factor of this device any person who look at the display surely get’s Eye-struck and personally it’s my favorite. I have used many phones but have never seen such a good display for this price.
Gaming and Multitasking on Mi3
Gaming is great on this device right from subway surfers to all high end games like Asphalt 8 work very fine without any issues or frame loss, Gameplay is smooth and the display makes it more GOOD!
Multitasking won’t be an issue due to such high end specs but do remember the tips that i have mentioned in battery section below.
Camera on Mi3
Mi3 has a 13MP Camera with BSI sensor with Dual LED Flash and can take some amazing pictures with great details even if you zoom in. Selfie Lovers have 2MP camera with BSI sensor and it is very decent. you can see the camera samples below in photo gallery and you can watch my video below for video and pictures samples!
Battery on Mi3
it has got a good battery life as with even with moderate to heavy usage i still had 20% charge left at night and i charged it to 100% in morning.
One tip that i want to share that close applications if not in use at it takes up space as well as eats up battery. You also have security App where you have some settings which you can use according to the battery you need before you are ready to charge it again!
Overall Likes and Dislikes after Full Review of Xiaomi Mi3
1) Stunning Display
2) Good Camera
3) Good for Gaming
4) Good for watching Movies any Video on YouTube
5) Good battery life
6) Nice Built quality
7) Just Rs. 13999

I guess now you are ready to decide it for yourself is it for you or not!
