The Redmi Y3 is a good phone, just kinda unnecessary. Maybe they should’ve included the better front camera on the Redmi 7 itself. It just seems like there are too many choices, and Redmi 7 is competing with its brother in the market!

The Redmi Y3 is a decent performer with a good selfie camera. The phone’s HD+ display might not impress multimedia enthusiasts due to its sub-par sharpness and lack of HD streaming support. However, its glass build, gradient design, decent battery, and capable selfie camera make the phone a good opt...

The Xiaomi Redmi Y3 should appeal to such selfie enthusiasts who have somehow stayed away from its remarkably successful Note series. The Redmi Note 7 that retails for the same price has a better chipset, superior performance, fast charging support, and uses more premium materials in its constructio...

If you are always clicking selfies, shooting videos with front-camera for social media platforms, Redmi Y3 is the best smartphone to buy in sub 10K price-segment.

Redmi Y3 is strictly for those who need a good selfie camera and dedicated SIM slots. The company recently confirmed that the Redmi Note 7 will soon be replaced by the Note 7S with a better camera, so you have to shell out Rs. 1000 more. But, it is worth spending a bit more since you get a better screen, 48MP rear camera, faster performance, support for fast charging, and lots more.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y3 should appeal to such selfie enthusiasts who have somehow stayed away from its remarkably successful Note series. The Redmi Note 7 that retails for the same price has a better chipset, superior performance, fast charging support, and uses more premium materials in its construction, and the Redmi Y3 is an alternative that offers a relatively more ergonomic design, dedicated card slot, and a better selfie camera.

If you are always clicking selfies, shooting videos with front-camera for social media platforms, Redmi Y3 is the best smartphone to buy in sub 10K price-segment. The handset offers impressive self-portraits, latest software, long-lasting battery life and a dedicated microSD card slot so that you don't have to compromise on connectivity and storage. The 1080p video at 30fps with EIS is a very handy feature for content creators who are tight on the budget.

If you find yourself obsessively taking pictures of yourself for Instagram throughout the day, then you might be willing to compromise on the specifications, just for a better front camera. While not perfect, we did find the Redmi Y3 to have an edge over competition such as the Redmi Note 7 and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 when it comes to selfies, especially in low-light. On the other hand, if you only take selfies casually now and then, you would find the Redmi Note 7 or Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2 to be better value than the Redmi Y3. Both phones have much better displays, more powerful processors, and slightly better rear cameras.

Redmi Y3 is a good smartphone overall, with decent looks, good performance, rear cameras and battery. With Redmi Y3, the unique point lies with the selfie camera. But one has to remember at this price, one can easily get a phone with a full HD+ display, even from Xiaomi’s own range of devices. In our view, that might be the better decision.

For the price, the Redmi Y3 is a good upgrade over last year’s Redmi Y2. You get a better and refreshing design, an efficient chipset, and more. The selfie camera and dual rear cameras are good for a smartphone in this price range. It also offers a good battery life. I only wish Xiaomi would have gone with a slightly better chipset. Even the low-light performance of the cameras could have been better.

A sturdy ‘Aura Prism’ design, long battery life, fluid gaming and impressive overall camera performance are the strengths of Redmi Y3. The weaknesses include the night and low-light shots, slow charging and heating issues that crop up after prolonged usage. However, under Rs 10k, the phone gives you a 1.8Ghz Snapdragon 632 processor and a competent camera setup (both front and back) that shoots splendidly in the day and illuminated conditions. The security options like face unlock work quickly and the phone gives a good audio performance.
