    1. Hi! The Snapdragon version of Xiaomi Mi3 will work with European 3G networks. It supports WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100 MHz. You can use mobile data network.

        Will Huawei honor 6 plus work in Czech republic if i buy it in china?

        1. Hi! Yes it will work. But please check first what 3G and 4G frequencies are supported by your network. This is to make sure that the phone will be compatible with your network’s WCDMA frequencies for you to use 3G and 4G internet.

    1.)How is it with future support for other languages? Could it be that when I buy a phone like this in China, and over time it makes the language for Czech Republic and I will change it? or is permanently language if not English distribution?

    2.)Warranty is one year, right?

    3.)How much is the delivery to the Czech Republic?

    4.)And as it has Xiaomi with Android? Its own way, so you will have to update Androdid 4.2, 4.3, …? Or just its superstructure 4.1 …?

    Price is beautiful, probably buy

    1. Hi! I’m not sure about official support for your language in the future. But you can install custom ROMs with Czech language if you root the phone. However, rooting breaks the warranty. The warranty is one year.

      Delivery to Czech republic is $34 via DHL or $37 via EMS.

      The android version of Xiaomi phones is modified. It is called MIUI. They frequently update their operating system so you can also update your phone often.

      Xiaomi Mi3 is still unreleased. Probably next month it will be available in the Chinese market. However, Xiaomi only makes a limited supply of its phones and the demand is very high. I hope you can get one on time.

    thank you fanda

    1. Hello! Most likely, Xiaomi Mi3 will only support English and Chinese languages. But you can download and install multi-language ROMs for MIUI V5 (Xiaomi Mi3 OS) if you root the phone.

    1. For Italy and for other countries except China, the Snapdragon version is the one to buy. It is compatible with 3G WCDMA. Italian language may not be supported by Xiaomi Mi3 but it is possible to install custom MIUI multi-language ROMs on the phone.

    Why “4+1” corel? What is “+1”?

    1. NVIDIA Tegra 4 features a 4 core CPU for intensive graphics plus a fifth low power Cortex A15 companion core that performs background tasks to save power. Hence, 4+1 cores.

        Snapdragon? And how many hour does xiaomi mi3 stand by with 3050mah?

        1. The Snapdragon version only has 4 cores. I cannot answer that since I don’t own a Xiaomi Mi3. At least not yet.

    Dear Kris,

    Thank you for this useful website. I am from Argentina, where imports are scarce and imported cellphones are quite expensive. I will visit Shanghai next month so I was thinking of buying a cellphone and I really like this one (Xiaomi Mi3), but I want to make sure it will work at home. My network provider is Movistar, which uses the following bands both for 2G and 3G: 850/1900 (UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA). Would the Snapdragon version work? Also, do you know where I can buy it in Shanghai and the approximate cost?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hello! The Snapdragon version will work with your network. Unfortunately, you might not be able to buy a Xiaomi Mi3 even in China because only a limited stock has been produced initially. Only those who have “F codes” or those who have reserved Mi3 phones from Xiaomi during the pre-selling period will be able to buy them during the first release. The rest of us who have no F codes must wait for the next release. That’s how greatly-anticipated this phone is. If you can obtain an F code somewhere, then you can buy a Xiaomi Mi3. Or if you can find a shop that has obtained some units from the first release, then you might be able to buy one. Just make sure it is genuine.

    Hello, I’m wondering when will be this phone released? Cos it’s not possible to buy yet anywhere.

    1. It will be released by October. Unfortunately, you might not be able to buy Xiaomi Mi3 anywhere for now because only a limited stock has been produced initially. Only those who have reserved Mi3 phones from Xiaomi during the pre-selling period will be able to buy them during the first release. The rest of us must wait for the next release. That’s how greatly-anticipated this phone is. But if you can find a shop that has obtained some units from the first release, then you might be able to buy one sooner.

    הי כריס בקשר לקניה מישראל אני מעוניין לקנות את xiaomi mi3 רק רציתי לדעת מה המכס אם הוא נתפס בדרך והאם אתה ממליץ לקנות את xiaomi mi3 מה החנות www .xiaomiworld.com תודה

    1. שלום!האתר שקשר לא אתר רשמי של Xiaomi. זוהי אחת החנויות המקוונות הסיניות האלה שמוכרים רק 1 מותג של טלפון. הוא מופעל על ידי מוכר שבבעלותם הרבה חנויות מקוונות אחרות של מותגי טלפון אחרים.

      אני לא מכיר את החנות שלכן אני לא ממליץ על זה. Xiaomi MI3 הוא רק עבור הזמנה מראש, בדיוק כמו כל חנויות המקוונות האחרות. יש להם גם מחירים גבוהים יותר. אני ממליץ לך לקנות טלפונים מחנויות מקוונות ידועה ומהימנות סיניות

    Your soonest replay will be appreciate.

    1. Xiaomi Mi3 supports WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100 MHz. So it supports Mexico’s 3G frequency which is WCDMA 850/1900 MHz.

    This phone you send to czech republic and working for O2?

    1. Hi! The phone’s 2g/GSM will surely work in your country. But check also the 3G frequencies of your network. The phone supports WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100 and CDMA2000. If they match with your network’s frequencies, the 3G of the phone will work.

    2. The online sellers can send it to Czech Republic and it works with O2 network in your country.

    Hi I am using MI3 in India . It does not search for 3G networks . When i forcefully search for 3G it does not list any carrier . but it do search 2g . what could be the problem ?

    1. Hi! Which version of the Xiaomi Mi3 did you buy? If it is the NVIDIA Tegra version, it cannot be used with your country’s 3G. Only the Snapdragon version will work with your country’s 3G.

    Hi will the NVIDIA Tegra version work in India on a CDMA network

    1. Hi! No, the Tegra version is for TD-SCDMA only. The Snapdragon version will work with CDMA network but make sure your network is compatible with CDMA2000.

    I have also brought a Tegra mi3 phone from China. To change the languge, goto setting language and sellect English. It may be difficult becase the complete screne is in chinese, then please ask to do factory setting. On the start after factory setting it would ask for language option. There the selection can be done to English.


    I have seen many of your reply and you seem to quite informed on the issue. Can you please guide me out of my troubles with my MI3. In oreder to install i installed one apk pack from pakdriod.com. The goole installer was installed but it falled to install google service framework due to parsing error. I changed the DNS setting to and The google service framework could still not be installed but my whatapp started giving trouble. It stopped on loading. Can you tell what might have caused the problem and how to rectify it? As fas as connection 3G connection is conrcerned, that is always a problem and I am ready to live with it, since my mi3 is running on Tigra.


    1. Hi! Sorry but I do not know how to fix your issue. You can go to forum.xda-developers.com and search the forum for solutions. It is a very helpful website. Also, the Tegra version is only compatible with China’s 3G frequencies so you really will have a problem with the 3G. The Snapdragon version is the one compatible with international 3G frequencies.

    dyou have a stock of xiaomi mi3? thanks.. im from philippines and how long does it take to receive the item and whats inside the box except the phone?

    1. Hi! It is still available at the online stores I recommended above in my post. The supply of Xiaomi Mi3 is already limited because Xiaomi Mi4 is their new flagship phone and the one they are promoting nowadays. It usually arrives around 2 weeks via EMS. But it also depends on the customs. The package usually includes the charger, USB cable, and earphones. Verify with the seller about the accessories.
