    Why not? High perfomance, sexy body, huge battery, good price.

    The hardware is great. But the official rom and support is shit.
    I would wait untill they finally release a dev rom that supports bootloader unlock.
    And off course if there is still custom rom support here at xiaomi.eu.
    If you dont want to wait, then i would look for a manufacturer that doesnt lock down their phones and OS. (if we want that, then iphone and windows phone are better alternatives :))

    Rather buy a mi3 2/64 before it becomes unavailable. It is more powerful, cheaper and has mm support already plus unlocked bootloader.

    IMO bootloader question (locked/unlocked) is a large factor.

    yes buy it you will not be sorry. i have a few china phones and redmi 3 is the most reliable. it has huge battery and it can last for a few days with heavy usage.
    i made a few videos comaring redmi 3 to some other phones

    A small flaw is that the buttons are not illuminated

    7.1.1.1 is not even on list of older versions so looks like is some custom rom. I advise you to install original rom 7.2.6.0 chinese then google play on it.

    Hello,

    my answer is yes, but when i must have take one Xiaomi phone again, than i would buy a Mi 4c, i like it more than the Redmi 3. The price for the Mi 4c is falling.

    Good lock with the decision.

    Regards,
    Note-2

    There's no ads on an original rom, from miui or miui eu
    You must have a different rom altogether which is probably why your battery is so bad

    I've been Redmi 3 user for one week.

    + battery with my usage (2 mails, viber, hangout, facebook) it last two days
    + performance
    + style
    + 5gb space on Mi Cloud

    - double tap to wake
    - buttons are not illuminated
