Are you still struggling with the high price of iPhone or Samsung Note? Right now there’s a new option for you. This is one of the cheapest android phones but it provide top 3 android experience.
I strongly recommend it not just because it is from China, but because I really love it. Its name is Xiaomi Red Note 3. Xiaomi in Chinese means a grain of rice. This company is trying to combine their advantages on price and technologies into this phone. It is released recently and only costs 150$.

What makes it attractive is its massive battery. It can easily last the whole day long. Unlike the poor iPhone battery which always make you worry about how much electricity is left, the battery of Xiaomi Red Note 3 is something give you the sense of security.
Also it has a unique Android system. Its android system is not like a regular one but a custom one made by Xiaomi corporation to suit its hardware performance. It has a simpler system with all the functions of traditional ones, which works more smoothly. Its excellent system is called MIUI 7.
But its camera performance cannot get even closer to iPhones. Although its camera supports the quality of 1080p pictures, you will find countless noise point when you use it under an extreme condition. However it only costs 150$, so I guess we should not ask for more.
By the way, it also has a fingerprint reader. Sounds really fancy.
