How to use Mi remote?
Go to Tool icon Select Mi remote icon. Double click it. The box opens for various options like AC, TV, DVD, Set-top box. Select your required option. If you select TV, then next screen opens and prompts you to ask whether TV is on or off. Click ON button. Then from a 1-metre distance try to pair it. It will ask you to ON the TV using Mi remote. Confirm the same using Mi remote. After proper set up you can make on / off, increase volume, decrease volume, mute sound, increment channel, decrement channel. It works from approximately one-metre distance only. I am using it for all my equipment; it's working fine. I am happy about the same.

Firstly, you need to have internet on your mobile Then open the app. Click on add remote. Choose the appliances you want to control. Then choose the brand of the product. Setup page will pop up & then you will test some switches like power on or off. If any button works, then save the profile name and finally you are ready to go. You can control your appliances with Mi remote.

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.
By Mdsarfar**
Mark Helpful (208)
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**

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.

3s don't have a fingerprint scanner and has a 2GB RAM with 16 GB internal storage. 3s Prime has a fingerprint scanner with 3GB RAM and 32 GB storage. While 3x is the name of 3s prime in China.

Yes, of course. Redmi 3s, 3s prime are low and high versions. But 3s prime and 3x are the same models. 3x is the name of China version and 3s Prime is the India version.
By Ranaash**

No, only both devices look similar, and the camera quality is same. But 3s prime has finger touch, 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM, whereas 3s has 16 GB ROM and 2GB RAM.

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 (180)
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.

No other phone has the specifications as Xiaomi does, Xiaomi products are made in India.
By MySmartPrice User
Quality is good. Camera quality is good enough for the price with other hardware configurations. Design is awesome, specially the gold one looks more premium. It's slim enough to say it's cool. Sound quality is good, better experience with headphones. Presence of gyroscope made me love VR. As like Jio's data packs and calling, this company has proved India that how cheap mobile hardware configuration can be purchased.(read more)
