3 best alternatives to Xiaomi Mi3

Xiaomi Mi3 became one of the highly demanded smartphones in India in just a short span of over a month but its sale suddenly suspended by the company on Flipkart. As there is no official solution left for the Indian customers to fulfill their demand, we are here to bring out the three best alternatives to the Mi3.

We are quite sure that some of our readers may find that the price tags of the alternatives are a bit higher than the Mi3, but we assure that you will definitely get the same performance of the highly demanded smartphone with spending some more bucks.

Motorola Moto X

Among the three best alternatives, Motorola Moto X is on the top of the list. Although Motorola is coming up with the successor of the Moto X next week, the last year-launched smartphone has all the things to take on the Mi3 without even giving much burden on its users’ pockets.

With a price tag of Rs. 23,999, the Moto X offers a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display and is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 320 GPU. There is 16GB on-board storage along with 50GB Google Drive cloud storage for storing content. The smartphone has a 10-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash and a 2-megapixel camera on the front.

There is Android 4.4 KitKat operating system along with stock interface and some unique features such as Smart Active Display and Pulse Discreet Alerts to give a decent experience.

Google Nexus 5

The next pick that we have chosen as one of the best alternatives for the Mi3 is LG-made Google Nexus 5. Similar to the Mi3, the Google Nexus 5 features slim design and light weight to give users a skinny smartphone. Of course, its price would be an issue for some but the sure-shot possibility of Android L in the coming months would justify the extra pennies.

The Nexus 5 gives users a 4.95-inch 1080p IPS display at a starting price tag of about Rs. 27,500. There is the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset which is available within the Mi3 with 2.3GHz quad-core Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB and 32GB storage options for the users but with no support to expand the storage. The smartphone, lastly, provides decent imaging experience with its 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera.

Apple iPhone 5c

It might be unacceptable by some of its fans, but Apple iPhone 5c is the last one in our list of alternatives of the Mi3. The iPhone 5c is the cheap iPhone option over the iPhone 5s which may soon leave the market but you can still take a chance to pick it up if you were planning for the Mi3. There is iOS operating system on the top to give all the high-end features that are most commonly used on Android.

The iPhone 5c, on the specifications front, is nowhere stands in the race of the high-end smartphones, however, the presence of iOS and Apple’s branding are the two key factors behind its decent sales. When comparing to the Mi3, the iPhone 5c has a 4-inch Retina display with 1136 x 640 pixels resolution and a 1.3GHz dual-core Apple A6 processor with 1GB of RAM and up to 64GB storage options. There is an 8-megapixel rear camera along with an LED flash and a 1.2-megapixel front camera.

At the time when Apple is all-set to bring its new iPhone devices, the purchase of the last year-launched iPhone 5c may not sound appropriate to some of the readers. However, it is still the most cheapest deal to experience iPhone under an affordable starting price of about Rs. 25,000.
