The latest smartphone from Xiaomi, the Redmi 3S Prime, is the latest smartphone in its line-up. This device is a genuine big success and as you would expect from Xiaomi, this is the third phone the company has released in less than a year, with this one being the best of the lot.
In the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime review, we've compared it against the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, LG G3 and Sony Xperia Z5. It's clear that it is the best phone out there, even ahead of its rivals in terms of specs, performance, and battery life.
As always, the competition between these smartphone manufacturers has been a big hit. Of course, you could argue that it's a lot more convenient to buy a second-hand phone through your local retailer, rather than directly from the company, but when the competition becomes stiff, that's a clear sign that the phones you're going to buy are the best in the market.
The 3S Prime comes with the latest Snapdragon 800 processor, which is more powerful than the Samsung's Exynos 7420, so it has more computing power and will be able to run faster software programs. It also features more RAM which makes it run faster and more smoothly.
Although the Redmi 3S Prime is not as fast as the Galaxy S6 Edge, or the LG G3, it's still faster than other top smartphone smartphones of the market today. The chipset powering the phone is fast enough to run all the latest games and the latest apps, which means you won't have to wait for any lengthy loading screens.
This iPhone 5 clone is able to give you a good level of screen performance and with Gorilla Glass 4 coating, you get a scratch-resistant screen, so even at the highest brightness level, you don't suffer from glare or smudges. You get full screen home screen, which means you don't need to hold the phone near your eyes when you want to check your messages.
The Redmi 3S Prime offers a decent user experience, which is why the company is able to claim a highly recommended rating for the phone. There's no bloatware on this phone, you can install any app of your choice.
The battery life on the Redmi 3S Prime is also impressive. This device has a 3100mAh battery, which is very respectable for a smartphone of this kind.
On the design front, Xiaomi has used a clean design philosophy with the Redmi 3S Prime. A metal frame runs around the sides of the phone and you get an aluminium body that is curved.
Another popular Redmi is the Redmi Note, which was the first flagship made by the company. Although the Redmi Note did offer a few major improvements over the Redmi 3S Prime, it lacked a few extra features and wasn't as powerful as the Redmi 3S Prime.
In short, the Redmi 3S Prime is an excellent phone, and a legitimate contender for the best smartphone out there. It has all the features you would expect from a high-end smartphone.
