The Xiaomi don’t want to loose any slot in Indian market under the 15K Range, For the price it is fully spec loaded phone, here we have summarized the review with Advantages and Disadvantages of Xiaomi Redmi 3s, after huge success of Redmi 2 and Redmi Note 3 now they have launched Redmi 3S.

Display is not quite stunning, it is just average neither it is AMOLED nor it has any special display protection like Gorilla glass.  
Phone can capture 13 MP photos from rear and 5 MP from front camera, photos comes out pretty detailed and close to natural colors in good lit conditions however in low light the photos become grainy, which is problem with all the entry level even mid rang smartphone.
All the processing of phone is controlled by the entry level Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor, this Chipset is coupled with 2 GB RAM; able to give quite smooth performance, definitely the phone is incapable of running Graphic intensive games but day to day tasks are running without hiccups .
