Anyone wanting a slim smartphone pegged in with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 system chip should look in the direction of the Xiaomi Mi3 device. It comes with a 13-megapixel rear-facing snapper, 5.0-inch display, 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution and 2048 MB RAM.

If there’s on the obvious downside, it would be that it comes with 16 GB’s worth of internal storage space–not enough for most people. Couple that with no external storage expansion slot for an SD card and it is sufficient to turn many people away. One of the upsides of the Mi3 is the fast 4g mobile data support.
