Xiaomi’s Redmi series is something which is driving this brand forward in the mid-range bracket especially. With its recent launched devices- the Xiaomi Redmi Y3 and Redmi 7 we have fondly got the successors of Redmi Y2 and Redmi 6.
Talking about Redmi Y3, it is the perfect selfie lover device with a nice display and decent processor which will cost you around ten grand. But, is it a great deal to catch Is it a worthy option to buy in this range seeing the competition Let’s check it out in the Redmi Y3 review below
Design and Display
Under the Rs. 10,000 segment, Redmi Y3 weighs 180 grams which are bit heavy and chunky too- all thanks to 8.47mm thickness. The device gets a plastic finish as exceptive and is durable. On the back, you can see a glossy finish which can catch smudges and fingerprint easily. You get a dual rear camera setup on the back and also a fingerprint sensor which response fast. The device also supports face recognition and unlocks the phone. As per Xiaomi, they have added a P2i nano-coating which will protect it humidity and light splashes of water. You can easily make a purchase of this phone online using Paytm Mall Coupons with great offers.
The device gets some clickity and tactile buttons on the right. The 3.5mm jacks come in the top while there is a single slot on the left for two Nano-SIM cards and a microSD card. At the bottom, you can find a Micro-USB port and a speaker grille only.
Talking about the display, Xiaomi Redmi Y3 packs a 6.26-inch HD+ display. Although there is also a dewdrop notch on the top. The display brings the images pretty decent from all the viewing angles. Not much can be expected out of it as it only arrives at Rs. 9,999. The device gets Gorilla Glass 5 for scratch protection.
Under the hood, Redmi Y3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC which we previously saw in the Asus Zenfone Max M2. This chip is coupled with two RAM variants- 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and the other with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The device works decently fine and can load apps fast. But, using it for intensive tasking or multitasking will not be a nice idea.
Using this device for regular tasks like listening to music, calling, and social media- this device does wonders. But, when you switch to games like PUBG, this is not the device. It becomes slow, it lags and shows signs of hiccups at times when you go to intensive tasking. The phone doesn’t heat up and got an AnTuTu score of 1, 04,587 points which is very decent.
Redmi Y3 comes with dual rear camera setup including a 12-megapixel primary sensor with an f2.2 aperture and a 2-megapixel depth camera. Honestly, speaking this is not the USP of this device. But, when it comes to the 32-megapixel front camera- it surely becomes. The front camera rocks but looking at the chipset, you might feel the processing is slow, the images don’t come out good- it is all due to the chipset. The camera is decent and you will like it if you are looking at this price point- only Rs. 9,999.
Talking about battery life, Redmi Y3 packs a high capacity 4,000mAh battery which can easily give you two days of fuel. In the battery loop test, the device lasted for 14 hours approximately. So, a day and a half on actual usage are going nowhere. But, if you are doing some intensive tasking that this device is not capable of doing, then surely the winter will arrive- the battery will decay. Redmi Y3 doesn’t support fast charge but can be charged from the 10W adapter.

Redmi Y3 runs Android 9 Pie out of the box paired with MIUI 10.2. The connectivity options include dual 4G VoLTE, single-band Wi-Fi bgn, and Bluetooth 4.2. In the box, the Redmi Y3 comes with a standard 10W charger, Micro-USB cable, SIM eject tool, some manuals, and a silicone case.
Redmi Y3 comes in three colour variants: Prime Black, Bold Red, and Elegant Blue.
Redmi Y3 is a nice device if you are looking for a nice selfie shooting device under Rs. 10,000. It totally depends upon you how you are looking at this device. Yes, this device is competing with Redmi Note 7 and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 but this is not as powerful as others. The 4GB variant which comes at Rs. 11,999 is not giving justice to any of the specs. We have seen far better in Realme 3, so why not go for that. But, strictly talking about the base variant, Redmi Y3 is a good device with an effortless selfie camera. So, if you thrive for selfies but don’t want to spend much of your cash too, then drop your money for the latest Redmi Y3.
