Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Vs Lenovo K3 Note


Xiaomi’s exclusiveRedmi Note series is getting better with each successive year. After Redmi Note 2, the company has unveiled the third generation of its Note family, and in our opinion, it’s just stunning. 


Crafted from premium-grade metal, Redmi Note 3 is a perfect piece of craftsmanship from the Chinese giant. It incorporates some power-packed features, and is a straight fit in the highly competitive budget smartphone market.

Though Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 boasts an ideal package for budget phone buyers, it will be facing some serious competition from Lenovo’s biggest success, the K3 Note. Both handsets are very impressive, and believe us, making the final call will be really difficult. So, here’s our in-depth comparison revealing how they both stack up against each other!

Design and Build
In terms of design and build quality, Redmi Note 3 is a clear champion. The device flaunts a stunning all-metal unibody with curved edges, sleek form-factor and fingerprint scanner on the rear-panel. It
packs a strong punch against K3 Note and offers a premium feel with a slew of aesthetics taken from
Meizu MX5 and iPhone 6. But, the best part is, despite housing a humongous 4000 mAh battery, it retains a sleek 8.7mm profile with complete perfection.

On the other side, Lenovo K3 Note looks good, but it is not as impressive as the new Redmi Note 3. The power-packed device features a box-like polycarbonate body with a flattish design, and gives a
nice feel with matte-finish on the back.It neither bears a fingerprint sensor nor makes use of metal for adding a premium feel to the aesthetics. Overall, it slightly slimmer than Redmi Note 3 but looks just like a standard budget phone with a plastic body!

Display and Visual Experience
As far as visual experience in concerned, both budget beauties, Redmi Note 3 and K3 Note, go head to head with their sharp 5.5-inch full HD IPS panels. They both claim to offer a nice viewing experience with lifelike colours and fine details, and stand in all environments, whether indoors with ample ambient light or outdoors in bright sunlight!

Overall, Lenovo K3 Note is a real performer in the display department, and we expect Redmi Note 3 to be the same as well. Though, our full Redmi Note 3 review will be revealing a lot more about the latest sensation from Xiaomi!

Hardware and Performance
On the hardware front, there’s a clear line of difference between the two smartphones! Lenovo K3 Note packs a strong set of specs with an Octa-core MediaTek MT6752 SoC paired with 2GB RAM and Mali-T760MP2 GPU. It runs smoothly and handles heavy games and apps without any lags or heating issues.The overall performance of this handset is really impressive, and is just at par with other Snapdragon 615 equipped devices!

But on the other side, Redmi Note 3 goes a class apart. The latest beauty from Xiaomi powers up by an Octa-core Helio X10 SoCrunning at 2.2GHz and paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB ROM.It comes in a low-end 2GB RAM and16GB ROM variant as well, but the fact is, both outperform K3 Note and other budget players!

It also important to note that for Indian markets, Xiaomi is bringing a special Snapdragon 650 powered variant of Redmi Note 3. It will be very similar to the original variant, except for a few tweaks here and there.

Camera Setup
Here, we have tie between Redmi Note 3 and Lenovo K3 Note. Both phablets feature the same camera setup of a 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter, and offer sharp and colour-rich images in all environments. They both pack dual LED flash with features like Geo-tagging, face/smile detection,touch focus, HDR, and panorama, and stand out in the category of best camera phones. The only difference is K3 Note has an f/2.0 aperture while Redmi Note 3 has an aperture as wide as f/2.2.

But, the Snapdragon variant of Redmi Note 3 is well ahead of K3 Note.It features a 16MP f/2.0 rear camera which allows more light into the sensor and delivers detailed images with enhanced pixel count!

Software
On the software side, both phones feature the latest iteration of Android with their own custom skins! Lenovo K3 Note features Android 5.0 based Vibe UI out-of-the box, while Redmi Note 3 runs
the same version but with company’s highly touted MIUI 7. The interface of both phones includes a bunch of features and is highly customization with themes and wallpapers, but the lack of app-drawer and high-amount of bloatware is a major downside. To sum up we can, both are fairly impressive, but none of them is as good as Vanilla Android!

Battery Backup
Despite featuring that sleek profile, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 accommodates a humongous 4000 mAh battery, and offers enormous juice for seamless work and play.The handset performs much better than K3 Note, and packs a strong punch by offering 750 hours of standby time and 36 hours of 3G talk time. Lenovo K3 Note’s 3000 mAh battery is also a decent performer, but it fails to rule out the powerhouse, Redmi Note 3!

Prices
In the Indian market, Lenovo K3 Note is hitting the shelves at Rs. 9,999 via Flipkart.com. The handset is now available on open sale, and can be purchased at a discounted price with several offers and cashback schemes.On the contrary, Redmi Note 3 is expected to ship at a price around 10k. However, since there’s no official word from the company, chances are,there can be a marginal difference of 1-2k as well.

The Catch
So, the bottom line is, Redmi Note 3 is a much better option over Lenovo K3 Note. The latest phablet form Xiaomi features a stunning all-metal unibody, and performs much better than K3 Note and all high-end players.Therefore, no doubt on the fact that Redmi Note 3 is a favourite in the budget segment, and a perfect competitor for the mighty K3 and K4 Note!
