I'm disappointed with the battery life, I barely manage to squeeze work day out of it with minimal usage. However if you choose battery saver option, the range is impressive. Ofcourse I use most of the snazzy features.

Yep, it's pretty dope. Just take your phone out and touch the side of the swipe machine, it's that easy.

Afraid not. It won't change the fact that the device itself won't have the required radio-bands/frequencies. airtel itself shall be roaming on AT&T/Sprint/T-mobile/Verizon only, and the missing band issue will crop up the same way.

FWIW, https://airtel-vodafone.com/discover...aming-partners says airtel's roaming partner in USA is AT&T - and AT&T bands+frequencies reported by https://www.google.co.in/search?q=USA+4g+bands aren't present in Redmi 3s Prime.

This should have been phrased as 'Dual Front Speaker' phones.

Are there any in the recent/recent past releases? Please suggest!!

I have been using it since the time it was launched. I am a big fan of large screen phones but it is not everyone's cup of tea. I would strongly suggest your wife have an actual look at it in a shop to see if the size is not an issue. Apart from that it is a great phone. Unbelievable battery life - around 9-10 hours of screen on time consistently. The 32 GB model is currently selling for 13.5k on Amazon which i think is a steal.

Praveen , I too am looking to buy the mi max 2 .
Could you please let me know if it fits in our shirt or pant pockets , as I use public transport often .
Also how does it sound when watching movies in stereo ?
Or is the stereo sound just a gimmick .
Also does the sd 625 lag on general usage ?
I do not play any games at all , so I need to make sure the phone will not hang or lag when watching movies .
Cheers ! Ankush .

Hi Ankush. Shirt pockets is not possible at all. I am close to 6 feet 2 inches so my pant pockets are a little on the larger side anyway and I haven't faced a problem yet. Since its such a cheap phone, I have not put a case so that helps in keeping the thickness in control.

I always use earphones for watching videos but the sound is decent through the speakers. Stereo sound helps to an extent but the gap is too less in mobiles to really give a good effect.

The SD625 is more than enought for regular usage. Even I dont play games and I have not encountered any lags while watching HD movies.

I bought one in the previous sale & have been using it since & I know I'll never be able to go back to anything smaller :-) If one can deal with the size, this is the one to get!
Excellent battery - the only phone that actually lasts for a day with MY usage (very heavy & everything turned on).
It fits in my shirt pocket (width) but 1/3rd of it remains exposed (height). I wear trousers & jeans (not the slim fit ones though) & dont face any problem in keeping the phone in the pockets. Its slightly exposed in jeans.

Speaker is just ok (in terms of loudness). There is no perceptible difference due to the 2 speakers.

Not faced lagging. I do play a couple of light games, & no issues in either games or hd movies.

For a case, I always use those cheap & non fancy transparent plastic ones that provide an awesome amount of protection but dont do anything for the looks. Also they do not add anything to the size/weight.

I'll suggest getting the 64gb variant & not the 32gb one though. Extra storage space helps, because the sd card option is ruled out if you are using 2 sims (hybrid sim+sd card slot). With only 13499 paid after discounts & cashback (for 64gb variant), its a huge vfm product. Lots of phone (screen+battery) for too little. I hope you are already familiar with MIUI - I & many other people find it indispensable, some hate it.

Thanks ,
Anks_at and Praveen .
I will buy the Mi max 2 .
I want to replace my ageing nexus 7 tab for watching movies and serials .
Yes I'm familiar with miui .
I already have a Redmi 1s , Redmi Note and Mi 5 .
I'm looking to exchange the Redmi 1s (which is 3g only) with the Mi max 2 .
I'm getting a good deal in the exchange and will buy it tonight .
Final price for 4gb/64gb with exchange for me is approximately 11k .
Cheers ! Ankush .

Interesting specs and with an exchange of old E3 power and 10% cash back juicy at about 7k INR Should be receiving it by Monday
Got delivered ahead of time today, it was an exchange deal with old E3 Power. Set the device up using the old back up, and running in is on now!

Quite good to hold in hand and doesn't feel the 17x gms thanks to the area. The finger print sensor is pretty good, in fact as good as a Moto G5. The screen is pretty awesome and the brightness and color rendering is quiet natural and smooth. Am impressed with it so far. Camera and the adjustable bokeh effect after shoot is super awesome. All in all the 7k net spent seems to be the best i have done so far for mobiles.

Need to find the first available case to protect it though, being a new brand and model, G has not got any as of now!

Amazon is giving double cash back on phones. My phone which normally warrants a 2.5k exchange price is getting a 4.5k exchange price on a white LG G6! So the effective price is somewhere near 29.5 which is originally 33.9 approx. Lap it up guys!
