The difference between a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro is almost negligible, especially in terms of design. But when you look at the specs in depth, it becomes obvious that Redmi 3 Pro falls short in certain specifications. But this isn’t always bad.

Redmi Note 3 Specifications

  • Qualcomm MSM8956 Snapdragon 650; Quad-core 1.4 GHz; Adreno 510
  • 16 GB, 2 GB RAM; 32 GB, 3 GB RAM
  • 150 x 76 x 8.7 mm; 164 g
  • IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 5.5 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • 16 MP primary camera, f/2.0, dual-LED (dual tone) flash
  • 5 MP secondary camera, f/2.0, 1080p

Redmi 3 Pro Specifications



  • Qualcomm MSM8939v2 Snapdragon 616; Quad-core 1.5 GHz; Adreno 405
  • 32 GB, 3 GB RAM
  • 139.3 x 69.6 x 8.5 mm; 144 g
  • IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 5 inches, 720 x 1280 pixels
  • 13 MP primary camera, f/2.0, LED flash
  • 5 MP secondary camera, f/2.2, 1080p@30fps

Based on specifications and features, Redmi 3 Pro is lighter and smaller, although it won’t be obvious unless you take measurements. Now this isn’t exactly a disadvantage, because you might be one of those people who prefer a more lightweight mobile device than a heavier one. What is bad is that its IPS LCD display is not only smaller in size, but also has a lower resolution. Not very suitable if you’re very particular about a display‚Äôs resolution.

Another disadvantage is the chipset, which is considered the weaker of the two. Even when the RAM size is the same, the difference in the CPU will definitely have a noticeable effect on performance.

In the end, Redmi Note 3 is the better choice between the two. If both mobile devices were in a boxing ring, the Redmi 3 Pro is taking all the punches and will probably lose the game by TKO.
