The model has simple design, but it isn’t as thin as you could think (small battery). It has the size of 128.3 x 64.2mm x 8.2 mm and weight of 138g. That means it’s thickness is bigger, than in phones with huge displays.

Xiaomi Mi S have USB Type-C port on the bottom and 3.5mm audio jack next to it. Interesting fact is that fingerprint scanner below the display appears to be the same as in the top Xiaomi models (Xiaomi Mi 5s) and uses ultrasonic technology.

    4.6 is a true sub-compact. I have been waiting for this if it has US LTE.

    • December 22, 2016

      The Redmi 3S Prime comes with a Global ROM version which has a few US compatible LTE bands, but it is 5 inches so not a real sub-compact.

        I have a Mi4c sitting in a drawer which is better than a Redmi. I currently use Zuk Z2 Pro.

        • December 22, 2016

          I have also had the Mi5, best phone I ever owned, but I tend to move onto something new every 4 to 6 months and wanted to see how good the Redmi 3 S might be especially with a Global ROM. I still have the Mi 5 but currently have it for sale on ebay – just used it for 6 months, longer than usual for me.

            I usually buy new Chinese phones every 7 months. The Z2 Pro might delay that since it is getting Nougat.

          • December 23, 2016

            you’d trade in a mi5 for a redmi 3s?? that’s like trading a lexus LFA for a prius! send me a link !!

            • December 24, 2016

              No, I’m selling the Mi 5 before it gets too old, before a new model comes along. I see replacing it with another mid to high end phone like the Mi %. The Redmi 3S is just a back-up phone, one I can keep longer term without worrying about its value dropping too much.

            • December 24, 2016

              now that makes sense

    I am all for high end compact phones. I have the 5 inch Redmi 3S Prime at the moment, the global ROM version, and really like it. I would like to try one under 5 inches but I think 4.6 inches is just a bit too small for my liking. I would prefer a minimum of 4.7, but 4.8 would be even better.
