July 26 11:46 2014 Print This Article



When we heard Xiaomi was going to expand its horizons to the Philippines back in April, we already knew it was going to be a gamechanger. What we didn’t expect though, was for it to happen so fast (and furious). Three months later, we now live in a world where the Mi3 has been available here for 4 weeks. Packing a Snapdragon 800 processor; 5.0” FullHD Gorilla Glass 3 display; large 3,050mAh Battery; and running Android 4.4 Kitkat; this phone can easily keep up with even the most expensive 1st Tier flagships and is priced at half the cost – PHP 10,599. But is it too good to be true or are we truly in an era of pure consumer bliss? You can find out in our full Xiaomi Mi3 review!
