Hands On Video: Xiaomi Redmi Note 3


Redmi [47567]

I recently picked up the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 from a Chinese seller on eBay for just under £160 and was surprised to see it arrive at my doorstep in less than 2 weeks, including the Christmas period with all those bank holidays delaying everything.

Anyway, I’ve done a hands on video of the device, I’ve barely had it 36 hours at the time of filming, so didn’t go too in depth, but I will be doing more videos on it, including some speed comparisons with my current device, the Lumia 830.
