The phone has a full-HD display of 5 inches and a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels. Fitted with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 1.4GHz processor and 3GB of RAM, the Redmi 3S Prime is fast and smooth functioning.

For all those who enjoy the taking pictures with their phone, the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime is a phone that may disappoint. While the rear camera is of 13 megapixels, the quality of images in low light is not as good as you would hope. If you are shooting in the bright outdoors however your images will be fine. For taking selfies, the front camera with 5 megapixels is sufficient.

The Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime has Android’s 6.0 Marshmallow installed, along with the Xiaomi MIUI skin integrated over it.

The storage capacity is of 32GB and can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 128GB. Unlike the cheaper version (Redmi 3S), the Redmi 3S Prime has a fingerprint scanner added to the back of the phone.

The battery is the main feature of the phone and also its biggest selling point. Packed with a 4,100mAh battery, the phone promises to last up to two full days without charging. This feature has been tested and proved even when using the camera, internet browsing and even streaming videos online.

The phone has dual-sim slots for both micro and nano SIMs. Xiaomi also offers a well-rounded connectivity option, with WiFi, GPS, 4G, FM and Bluetooth as well. The phone also has numerous sensors including the ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer.

Xiaomi has created a smartphone that body is stylish with a sleek metal body and a curved back. Available in three metallic colours including grey, gold and silver, this phone is sure to stand out. Priced at Rs. 8999, the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime is one of the best smartphones in this price range.
