The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is the next premium Note which comes with a metallic build, fingerprint sensor, 5.5 Inch full HD display, powerful hardware specifications and the latest MIUI 7 software (based on Android Lollipop).

Since Le 1S arrival is still not official, this is perhaps the first Helio X10 powered smartphone announced for India. The 2.0 GHz octa-core chipset is further assisted by 2GB/ 3GB RAM depending on the storage variant you choose (16GB/32GB). It remains to be seen which variant Xiaomi will bring in.

That’s a tough call, but it depends on your needs. We will soon post a full Le1s vs Lenovo K4 Comparison since we have been using them for a week highlighting pros and cons of each. MotO G3 Turbo isn’t very exciting at this point of time. And we haven’t reviewed Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 yet ( It is not expected to arrive until march).
