Five Reasons Why The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is a Better Buy Than The iPhone 6S


The recently concluded Redmi Note 3 VS iPhone 6s review comparison, showcased both the iPhone 6s and Redmi Note 3’s capabilities, however, despite being better at a lot of things, we still felt that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is still a worthwhile buy. In regards to that, we figured to highlight five reasons as to why the Redmi Note 3 is a better buy than the iPhone 6S.

The capability of Quick Charge

The quick charge feature is probably one of the most important factors that got the Redmi Note 3 in a better position on the review comparison, despite being outperformed by the iPhone 6S. This particular feature wasn’t present on the iPhone’s arsenal, which makes the Redmi Note 3 advantageous in terms of charging.  This simple feature might be simple, but its a pretty huge deal, with your thinking of battery efficiency.

Not much of a shock that this reason is here. The relatively cheaper $200 dollar Redmi Note 3 is getting a lot of love recently here in the PH market, because of its very reasonable price range (widget city selling them for Php 10,500). I know, price alone isn’t something that we should rely on, but as mentioned before, in a few of our editorials. Price is a huge factor in playing out a decision for customers. The Redmi Note 3 is actually decently powered for a Php 10K device and should dish out satisfactorily system performance, while the heftier iPhone 6S might just be way too much for some people’s wallets.

Dual-SIM capability

The Dual-SIM feature is primarily one of the most important feature, especially if the user of the device prefers to seperate his/her personal SIM information with his/her work-related SIM information. It’ll be pretty troublesome if the device requires you to swap up SIM cards simultaneously and with the Redmi Note 3, it at least, lessens the trouble. The Dual-SIM feature might favour a few people and some might actually consider the Redmi Note 3 for that particular feature alone, instead of the iPhone 6S.

The 4000mAh battery capacity of the Redmi Note 3 can last pretty decently, with an expected 2-day battery life on moderate use. The Redmi Note 3 can last up to 4-5hours for on-screen time, which is very respectful at its own right.
