+1

I have been using the paid version for near 4 years. Works like a charm. What the paid version gives is an excel/CSV export/import feature. I use that to upload that data to cloud and hold my stats.

When changing phones, I just need to download the data from cloud and reload it to the app. And continue where I left out.

if you don't need dual-sim that is. The phone isn't too bad IMHO and has the flagship version of the 801. With four mics i think you'll get outstanding audio quality!

mi4-64 isnt available anymore :(

sale model is bad, but even tomorrow, open sale doesnt guarantee you'll get the device. it just means no regn required, and they claim more devices.
Thanks for the suggestion, but the Moto X won't make the cut for me. Internal memory of atleast 32GB is a must.

I was considering the Lenovo Vibe S1, and it has just received a price cut of Rs.2000 - now available for Rs.12,999.
Low capacity battery & higher price (meaning lesser value for money) seemed like the only two drawbacks versus the RN3. With the price cut, the RN3 has now lost the edge for me.

I will still attempt grabbing the RN3 32GB in the sale today, & give myself time till the 15min checkout window to decide whether I want to pick it (assuming I'm able to add it to my cart ), or go for the Vibe S1 available through an open sale.

Hey tibby, incase you are able to add the Redmi Note 3 32GB to your cart, and within those 15 mins change your mind to Lenovo Vibe S1, please do not delete the Redmi Note 3.

I am also registered for today's 32GB sale, and attempting at getting a hold of the elusive device. Incase you do not want it, please send it out to my address on Cash-On-Delivery mode. I will PM you my number & address.

All the above if you are able to add the 32GB to your cart and later do not want to buy it within 15 mins

My wife has Tata CDMA. The old Samsung phone's qwerty keypad is not functioning properly and not available with any repair shops. There is no authorised service centre nearby.
So decided to look for new handset but even basic handsets are from Micromax not from tier 1 brands like Samsung Lg. HTC smartphone was available but reportedly it has many problems and costs nearly 16k.
Another one was Gionee Marathon 5 with mobile store. It also has gsm + cdma where I can utilise another gsm sim card.
Has anybody here used Gionee handset especially CDMA?

Post Re: RN3 32Gig on it's way home

Ordered Redmi Note 3 (32Gb) Gold color for wifey.
Order confirmed.

My first flash sale experience was like this:

I clicked on the "buy" button as soon as clock showed 2:00
I watched the "0% claimed" text message go on to 20->40->60->100% claimed, while "checking deal status" was going on and on..
Eventually, I was on wait list.

Then after 15 mins of "being on waitlist", it was available to be added in cart

Did it.
COD.

Done ordering.
Wait begins.

Ace.

Yaaaaay !!!!

Wife got 32GB Gold
I got 32GB Dark Grey

Time for Biriyani tonight

PS: I have a 32GB Gold in my cart. Call me on 000-000-0000 (number removed now) if anyone wants it. 0 mins left.

On another note, I am a bit disappointed with the way this flash sale is happening. People (probably Amazon or Mi bots) merrily adding to cart and not checking out.
So what is hapenning is, although initially one doesn't get the desired phone, it becomes available after 20-30 mins. Hype marketing. Too bad a experience.

Ditto - achievement unlocked! I got Redmi Note 3 / 32GB as well today.

Clicked on mi.com buy button at the exact time but failed there - while on amazon, I tried ~30 sec later (mi showed a trying animation for ~2 min) and got through!

Any case recommendations? Not interested in warrior cases
http://www.amazon.in/Cellbell-Temper...K7K/ref=sr_1_6 is the tempered glass i'm considering.

Mi India website is a fake stuff it seems ! That person running and the test saying you are in queue is utter stupidity. Amazon shows real time availability. I got both through Amazon only.

Bhai, go to any mobile recharge and accessories shop nearest to your home. Buy one for about Rs.100 and get it fixed professionally by them.

I somehow am not comfortable fixing these screen guards or glasses myself

I buy quality stuff myself and then pay them 50rs each time to fix it. I doubt Gurgaon would have more than a couple of thousand RN3 owners, so why take a chance? They would otherwise fool you and put some other crappy "generic" tempered glass which would foul with the case or with some sensor (e.g proximity). I could not find a tempered glass made FOR HTC 820 ever - even the ones made for HTC 816 did not fit it. Since then, better safe than sorry.

Its raining RN3s today. I too would have loved to get my hands on the slightly higher spec version. But I guess good things come to those who wait.

Yes, I saw that everyone has got the higher spec version. I actually bought the 2GB/16GB variant a few weeks back when 3GB one was out of reach.

I don't mind having another RN3 as long as it is not COD.
