Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime Features
Xiaomi's Redmi 2 and the Redmi 2 Prime has been a huge hit in the Indian market and one of the major reason it being this hit is Xiaomi's pricing strategy. The features and specs then offered with the two phones were an absolute value for money for the price it was offered at. Following the similar trend, Xiaomi this year is back with the two devices Xiaomi Redmi 3S and the Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime. Again these phones offer great value for money and have a price difference of Rs. 2000, however the extra amount is totally worth it as the expensive Redmi 3s Prime features a fingerprint scanner and an extra GB of RAM.
Display and Design
Even the display size of the device is rarely found these days at 5 inch, it is great for one hand usage. The resolution of the display is 1280x720 pixels (HD) which gives it a pixel density of 294PPI which does sound sharp enough and on the display we do not get any sort of protection. The phone looks good and well build to not make any creaking sound and has a similar design to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
Hardware and Features
Inside Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Octa Core chipset that is clocked at 1.4Ghz and paired along is 3GB of RAM. The device should perform well, thanks to the decent processor and ample 3GB of RAM for an excellent multitasking experience. The phone also features an IR blaster which acts as a remote to most of the home appliances and a fingerprint scanner on the rear of the device which is fast and quite accurate while unlocking the device.
Camera and Battery
The Redmi 3S Prime has got a 13MP sensor on the rear that is capable of recording Full HD (1080p) videos whereas on the front lies a 5MP shooter. The rear sensor also features Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and there is also an LED Flash to help take pictures in light conditions. The battery of the device is yet another excellent feature to have but the charging time is quite more despite being said to have fast charging. Thanks to the massive 4100mah battery unit sealed inside the device, the Redmi 3S Prime delivers impressive battery backup.
Connectivity and Storage
Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime is a 4G LTE enabled device and also supports VoLTE. Even though it is a Dual SIM device only the first SIM supports VoLTE and the second slot is Hybrid, meaning it will either accept the second SIM or you can use the slot expand storage on the phone to up to 128GB via a MicroSD card.
