Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 review: Best budget phablet

1Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 review:

Redmi Note 3

Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series revolutionized the phablet genre by offering high-end specs at low prices. The third iteration of this concept has reached our review labs, and it’s finally time to give you a full lowdown of its abilities. It is to be noted that this phone comes with a Snapdragon 650 chipset inside it rather than the MediaTek Helio X10 SoC which cannot be used by the company in India for legal reasons. There are two options that you can go for, with one of them offering 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage and the other, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (both come with microSD card slots). We have the former version with us, and here are our thoughts about it.
