Cons of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

  1. No microSD slots:

With only 16gb and 32gb of storage to choose from some people will be disappointed, as people wouldn’t be able to expand the storage with an external microSD card.

  1. Average 1080P display with No scratch resistant screen:

The 1080 display here is an average unit. The contrast ratio, color accuracy as well as the sunlight legibility is average. Moreover, the screen is not scratch resistant as it doesn’t have gorilla glass or dragon trail glass. So if you are not careful with it, the screen can get scratch easily.
