Which one is better between Redmi 3S and Infinix Hot 4 Pro?
I think the Mi brand mobiles only works for a year not only mine but my colleague's mobiles also stopped working exactly after one year. The speaker, vibration and heating problem, etc. are common in all the Mi phones and I don't know about Infinix. But I suggest not to buy Mi mobiles, they are just looting us by fake products and we Indians are getting fooled easily by those Chinese companies.

In my opinion, both are better but I have only used 3S. If you want to go with Infinix then, my suggestion is you can also have a look at Infinix Note 4 which has a higher battery and storage capacity with Android 7 (Nougat) at Rs. 9000 and rest of the features are the same.

For sure Redmi 3S prime is better, but now Redmi has launched one new model at the same price. That is Redmi Y1; they also have two models at Rs. 9000 and Rs. 11000. If you have an additional budget, then go with Redmi Y1. It will be the best phone.

Redmi 3S is better. I think 3S mobile has a rating of 9/10. It's a perfect phone in all the departments, i.e. display, battery, performance, etc. But the Redmi phone has one weak point, i.e., camera, its quality is not great.
By Sarikasa**
Mark Helpful (115)
I think that Redmi 3S Prime is better but after few months, you will face some issues like hanging. The mobile will automatically restart, and also the volume of the mobile will decrease.

How to use 2 sims and a memory card in this phone?
There is no option to do this, rather you can use 2 SIMs or 1 SIM and a memory card. However, there is a solution for using dual SIM and memory card. But there is a lil' bit risk in doing this, you can go to any mobile repairing shop and tell him that you want to use both dual SIM and memory card. He will cut off your SIM from micro to mini and then take out only that network area of the SIM which is in golden colour. And then he will join that golden part to the back side of memory card. It is a very sensitive case, after doing this you will able to use both dual SIM and memory card on your phone. But you will not be able to use that SIM and memory card to another phone.

There is no option to use 2 SIMs and a memory card in Redmi 3S. Because there is a hybrid slot for SIM which is different from traditional type of slots wherein you can use either your second SIM or a memory card. There are other options to use memory if you have active data pack . You can use Mi cloud or Google photos. There are many other online storage apps where you can use for memory.
By Sachi**

There is a way but some say it makes the phone very hot. Just peel off the metal strip of your SIM and align it properly on the memory card and stick it. That's it, now insert it in the hybrid slot. I think there is an external slim slot that converts the hybrid slot to individual slots. You can go with this as this is a safer method.

It's a risky task but basically, we can do it. We have to export SIM microchip from SIM card. Make sure it's not your personal SIM card. It may be damaged during this process. So you are advised to see a video tutorial on youtube and complete it carefully. And we have to merge MMC and SIM card. Thank you.
By Vikass**
Mark Helpful (171)
You cannot unless you have/purchase adapter for the memory card. Other than that, you have to use just two SIMs or one SIM and a microSD card. There is another way, but it is risky, I tried it but I spoiled my SIM in the process. I tried to stick the chip off my SIM on the back of my SD card.

What video formats does this mobile support?
The stock video player does not support all available video formats but that's not a problem these days since you can install vlc media player , mx player or any top of the line media players to run any of your desire video format. In fact I have run even 4k .mkv format without any serious issue so the device is great. Right now i am using redmi 3s prime, for redmi 3s 4k might be an issue but don't worry 4k quality will not give you any benefit in HD 5 inch display.

Don't bother, just download VLC player which can play almost all formats. As such I've not had any issues playing most of the formats on the native video player either.

What is the warranty period of the battery?
Let me tell you it comes with a 4100mAh/4000mAh battery which lasts a maximum of 2 days with normal use and 11 hours minimum with heavy use. It comes with a 1-year warranty. I'm using this phone from August 2016 and I've not spotted any issues regarding the battery or anything else.
By Ashutos**
Mark Helpful (149)
It is the same as that of the phone i.e., one year. But I can assure you that battery life is amazing. If you play games it lasts for almost 8 hours, otherwise 24 hours. You don't need to charge it.

Strict no to any Mi products.
Within 3 months, phone has been dead and their service is terrible. The service center guys told that motherboard have to be replaced and initially they have given 10 days time frame and after that they started telling 20 more days. And when I found from other customers who were waiting at the service center is that the average time for motherboard replacement is 60 days and when I questioned the Mi representative, he says that parts are not available . How are they launching same phones into market when parts are unavailable because same parts are used in the 3 months old and current new phones? Their India Mi Head never responds to all these things on any of these issues on social forums.

Good product.
I bought this online and it was a fast delivery. Good product at this price, 4100 mAh battery is good, HD IPS 5 inch display is excellent, 2GB RAM & 16 GB ROM is good, 13MP camera is good than J2, buy Mi 3s at this price which is better than Samsung J2.
