Aside from its lack of 4G LTE connectivity, no memory card slot and average battery performance, the Mi 3 is a great deal for consumers who want a smartphone with flagship specs without burning a hole in their pockets.

Thanks to the top-notch specs found under its hood, you can't go wrong with the Mi3. Even if you end-up disliking the company's MIUI software (we doubt), you can always cram some custom ROM to it. We still suggest you to explore Xiaomi's custom UI; it's easy to use while offering some handy shortcuts along the way.
