Redmi Y3 Review 

Xiaomi keeps updating its Redmi series features as the smartphone industry has cut-throat competition. Is it really worth buying the Redmi Y3? Let’s review the top features and the differences the Redmi Y3 provides to smartphone users.

Hardware & Display

One of the key changes for the Redmi Y3 specification is the aspect ratio being enhanced to a 19:9 ratio with a 2.5D curved glass screen. This model of Redmi comes with a large 6.26-inch HD display with an advanced pixel resolution of  1520 × 720 pixels. Moving to its brightness level, it offers 450 nits brightness, vibrant colour, sunlight legibility and reading mode. Users can adjust display colour and contrast based on their preferences. You will also get Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection with the screen. 

On the back side, you will get a rear camera with an LED flashlight and a finger sensor below it at the centre. The camera lens has great resilience, being a scratch-resistant glass. 

User Interface & Software 

Redmi Y3 was launched with Android 9.0 and security updates with the MIUI 10 version. It enhances the features of full-screen displays, redesigned volume sliders, and single-finger swipe-down gestures. Redmi has upgraded the app vault with features like App Lock, Quick Ball, Dual Apps, Second Space, and more. With the storage of 3GB RAM, you will get 2.8GB of usable RAM and 1.2GB free while default apps run in the background.

Redmi Y3 has Qualcomm SDM632 Snapdragon 632 (14 nm) chipset, an Octa-core CPU, and a graphics processing unit of Adreno 506. This model also rolled out an infrared sensor with a Mi remote that works for remote function.

Battery Capacity 

The key highlight of the Redmi Y3 specification is its battery capacity, which is a whopping 4,000 mAh that can last for 13 hours and 41 minutes. Despite the heavy usage,   it can cope and sustain at least 10% of battery life. However, the model lacks the fast charging capacity that users expect from Redmi. Otherwise, the overall Redmi Y3 battery features and power management hold satisfactory results.
