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.

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’s 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.
