Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro Unboxing!

by Linus 15

We were really happy about the Xiaomi Redmi 3 and we even called it the best cheap phone at the time of our review. The device had a to offer for a very low price. It seems like that Xiaomi wants to take cheap phones a new level with the Redmi 3 Pro. We have all the great features of the Redmi 3 but the company added some significant upgrades to the device. Learn more in our Xiaomi Redmi 3 unboxing and first impressions article.

Thanks to Giztop for sending Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro for a review

Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro: UNBOXING

The packaging is the same as the the one that came with the Redmi 3. The contents of the box include a power plug, USB cable, instruction manuals and SIM ejector pin.

The main specs of the Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro include a 5″ 720p display, octa-core Snapdragon 616 chip (up to 1.5GHz), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage via the microSD card slot, 13MP camera on the back, 5MP shooter on the front, 4100mAh battery (non-removable), fingerprint scanner, dual-SIM support.



Once I first picked the phone up I noticed that the build quality is slightly better than the Redmi 3.


There is no major difference but the buttons have slightly better tactile feedback and there are absolutely no moving parts on the device (the Redmi 3’s back cover moved a little if pressed harder).

We have the same buttons and ports layout.


One of the major addition is a fingerprint scanner. I set it up initially and it works absolutely fine. It is fast, accurate and it automatically wakes the phone up from the standby mode and unlocks the device.


The initial impressions on the Redmi 3 Pro are nothing but positive. The device is compact, feels great in the hand and that gold colour review unit we have looks gorgeous.

We have spent just an hour with the device but everything is running fast and fluid. Keep in mind that the Chinese version does not have Google Services pre-installed but it is very easy to do that.

We will be using the Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro and testing it very carefully as always. Stay tuned to Gizmochina for a full review.

    Back lit buttons, notification LED?

    • mwahaha

      The standard redmi 3 has notification LED, I assume this one must have it too. Don’t know whether they implemented back lit buttons or not this time.

    • there is a notification LED but no backlit capacitive buttons

        I was planning to get the Note 3 Pro for the SD650 cpu but I am a bit scared about the size of the phone. I hope the gray version of the Redmi 3 Pro will be available soon so I could get it. By the way, do you know where I could order the gray version.

        • Ionut Johnny

          I have the grey version of the redmi note 3 pro and it is more beautiful than the boring gold I previously had.

  • mwahaha

    Neat!!! How long does it take to published the full review? I can’t wait 🙂

    • thanks! working hard 🙂 hopefully, by the end of the week. Don’t want to publish a half-baked review, need to spend some time with the phone

      • mwahaha

    That shiny chrome border along the front (undoubtedly plastic) will look like shit after 6 months or so.

    • Nick

      You can use a case cover to protect the phone, manufacturers have to save money somewhere do not forget that it is a budget phone.

      • Omer

        Here’s an idea to save money: Leave out that tacky chrome stuff.

        • Nick

          True, I think that they want to give a premium style to the phone. Maybe you should get a flagship device if you are looking for a better design and build quality.

  • Robert Smit

    The Glass breaks easily where the redmi 1s was much stronger.

  • balcobomber25

    The design is what I wish they would have done with the Mi5 instead of making it look like a Samsung knockoff.
