Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime Front


The Redmi 3S Prime when launched, seemed to be Xiaomi’s attempt to reprise their presence across all the segments they operate in. While the Note 3 and the Mi5 were making waves in the lower and higher mid-range, the Redmi 3S Prime was brought in to revive the company’s monopoly in the budget segment; it did to a certain extent. The phone is packed with a lot of premium hardware and doesn’t cost a bomb still.
