If you have bought a new Xiaomi Mi3 or are planning to buy one here are certain things you are better off knowing beforehand. The post is meant for beginners, but if you are planning to buy Mi3, I am sure you can find a few points to benefit from irrespective of your Android experience. The guide was prepared by Xiaomi Malaysia user group and compiles several issues faced by newbies.

Some Doโ€™s

Remove the Display Cover: After unboxing the device, first thing you should do is remove the display protector film. Some of you might be tempted to keep it under wraps for some time, but trust me that will mess with the proximity sensor and lead to abrupt call drops and other weird stuff. You are better off without it, especially because corning gorilla glass on the display ensures all the protection that you need.

Starting Mi3: You can start the device by long pressing the power key. Keep it pressed till you see boot animation on your Mi3 screen

Be careful with SIM Tray: Several users on MI Forum are reporting issues with the SIM card tray, so much that Xiaomi has posted a video tutorial on its India Facebook page to guide users through the process.

Restart after Inserting the SIM: it is advisable to Restart after you have inserted the SIM card properly. Check if everything works. Make a few calls. In case of any discrepancy you can contact customer care or flipkart for timely replacement.

First time charging: You might hear that you need to charge it for so and so hours for the first time, but thatโ€™s void of any merit. Just charge your phone till it reaches 100 percent. There are no strict rules with this.

Some Donโ€™ts

Do Not Insert the SIM card without the SIM Tray, in case you damage the SIM Tray repairing costs can go as high as 9,500 INR which is around 70 percent of the original cost.

If sometime you remove your SIM card from the SIM tray, do not insert the tray back in without the SIM. The SIM Tray might get stuck inside according to what several other users have reported on MI Forums.

Do Not throw away the sticker on your phone: There is a sticker on your phone, you can remove it, but donโ€™t throw it away. This might be required for warranty.

Solution to Some Common Problems

First thing to do, in case you encounter a vexing bug, is to restart your Mi3. Here are some other common problems and their solutions which you can benefit from.

Irregular Battery Drain: Lower the display brightness, turn off your GPS and install apps like Greenify or perhaps DS Battery Saver if you prefer something more aggressive.

Notification Problem: Go to your WiFi advanced settings and check the option to keep WiFi on during sleep. Also check for app settings as some apps require you to grant permission to display notifications.

WhatsApp Issues: If you are having sync issues with WhatsApp contacts that is because you require to give it access to your contact list. Go to Setting >apps>whatapp>manage permission>access to contact list.

Instagram Loading Issues: Turn off high quality image processing setting in Instagram Settings.

Touch ineffective while charging: In this case, un plug the device and restart it. In case the problem persist try using another data cable

Custom Ringtones Missing: To see the custom ringtones you can go to music player and untick filters in settings.

Uninstall Themes: Visit the page you used to apply theme and scroll down to find the Uninstall option.

Conclusion

Since MIUI on KitKat is still new, there will be several bugs which Xiaomi will address with its frequent updates. Xiaomi has a good reputation for listening to customer reviews which also saves it a fortune on R&D. If you are facing any other issues with the device, let us know in the comment section below.

  1. i want to know about its battery life. because the unit that i have now i am not impressed with its battery life.


  2. Hello sir,
    Thanks for giving this ossam review.
    My question is when i was reading the flipkart reviews people having issues like when they open the camera the device get switch off. Pls let me know about it.
    thanks and regards


    • we didn’t face any such issue with our review unit. one possibility is that display might be going off because of thin film protector messing with proximity sensor (you have to remove the display protector). Xiaomi has also rolled out a new OTA update to fix some app crashing and other issues with users in India.


  3. Hello. I got my device today and I haven’t yet removed the temporary screen cover provided by the company. The problem with my device is that, the screen goes off when I make a call and doesn’t light up during the course of the call. It’ll light up only after the call ends. Is there any solution for this problem?


    • I don’t have the device with me right now. Please try Light Manager or other LED notification app (enable notification access in settings>> security) and let me know how it goes. Some other users are also reporting this issue and Xiaomi will perhaps address this in next update


  4. I am hving a problem with voice calls . i am able to hear only on speaker mode .
    I cant even hear the ring at othr end


    • Some other users have also complained about call quality, but your’s seems to be an extreme case. ask for replacement


    • Even I am facing exactly the same issue yaar. This is very disappointing. Seems like Flipkart got all defective pieces from Xiaomi at the rate of peanuts. Please suggest.


  5. Hi Deepak,
    My sim card got stuck in the tray, and won’t open now. Its not broken as yet, just stuck. The thing you said about it costing 9500 is scary. Any clues?


    • without seeing it in person it’s hard to judge the problem or if there is any at all. Its inside and not opening? is the SIM working


      • Hey same problem I have sim detection problem n service centre says to change whole motherboard costing 9500 please do we have some other solutions


        • sim card reader socket holder issue mi service centre tell me replace mother board and cost around 8000 rs but iI don’twant to replace it is too much sir any other solutions please reply


  6. Hi!
    I bought the phone 1 week back.
    The Whatsapp works properly on WiFi but when on internet card of SIM, am unable to receive nor send any msgs. The other internet pages like google, etc. woks well. The only problem is with the Whatsapp.
    The Whatsapp gets active only when i connect to the WIFI.

    Please help


  7. HI Deepak ,
    Nice Post, thanks for sharing.
    However I have few queries.
    The battery doesnot seem impressive. 3050maH should have been powerful. I got my phone day before yestrday. With no talk, or wifi or any other activity its intact, but once games or specificaally 3G on, its really not worth. Can you suggest something for that.
    Also, you mentioned Kitkat. But i knew its using Jelly Beans Android OS.
    How about that.
    Thank you.


    • Indian version comes with Android Kitkat based MIUI. we confirmed that with review unit. With WiFi and 3G (around 5 hours) on i got more than one day battery backup, but i didn’t indulge in gaming. How much battery backup are you getting?
      put display on auto brightness and Switch of location services if they are on.


  8. hello, this is kareem.
    i also had a problem with sim tray strucked.
    5 days back i bought this phone , and i putted my micro sim with sim adopter , in it but at present sim tray was not opening, pls tell me any solution.


  9. My MI3 is restarting once or twice on it’s own everyday. I’ve done master reset, but the problem still exists.
    Also, after backing up the phone using BackUp app, the backup file is not being shown in the AllBackUp folder in MIUI when I connect the device to PC. But, I can see the files can be seen in file explorer in phone.

    Please suggest some solutions to these two problems. It would be a great help.

    Thank you in advance!


  10. I have just got my xiaomi today and I am facing a problem that when I use to call or take calls my screen display gets off only I can hear the sound not the display please give me some solution is there any setting issue


    • Use this procedure:
      go to contacts — settings — call setting — incoming call setting – turn off proximity sensor


    • I was also facing such type of problem……and then i seen Deepak’s reviews….by following him i removed the protective film which causes confusion to the proximity sensor and this solved my problem
      You should apply sceen guard in the place of that…i know that it’s gorills glass,,,but


    • Proximity Sensor Featured Xiaomi MI3 and Screen Go Off while calling issue is a non issue after all.

      Xiaomi MI3 has proximity sensor wherein if you make a call and phone is
      near your face, screen go blank, but you can keep on talking so as to
      conserve battery.

      However people who newly bought Xiaomi MI3 or maybe the upcoming Redmi 1S , are facing screen going off while calling.

      Pls note its written on temporary screen guard “tear off before use”.

      Hence pls remove your temporary matt finish screen guard and use a
      clear type MI Branded screen guard with necessary cuts for the proximity
      sensor to prevent such problem.


  11. I got my mi3 yesterday but i am not getting any sound from my ear piece, but when i connect the headphones it is audible through headphone.


  12. Hi Deepak, I was using MI3 without any issues, but yesterday due to heavy use my battery dips to zero, since then I am trying to charge my phone but it is not getting charged and phone restarts and shows 2% battery. Is there any solution or mobile bug


  13. I have just got my xiaomi today and I am facing a problem that when I use to call or take calls my screen display gets off only I can hear the sound not the display please give me some solution is there any setting issue


  14. Hii sir,

    • Xiaomi never retails in brick and mortar stores. if some one is selling he is not authorized retailer and it’s recommended not to buy from them.


  15. I’m having problems locating the ringtones and sounds in my external storage. I’ve tried everything from downloading external explorer apps to switching of filters in the music app, yet the ringtones folder is empty. Would appreciate help on this issue


  16. Hi my phone network is getting disconnected after the Battery level drops below 20%. I cant make calls and incoming calls also drops after ringing once only. This happened only after the last Software update to version 23 yesterday.


  17. hello sir can u help please sir my xiaomi mi3 main mic not at all working i am not able to listen incoming and outgoing call please help me sir please


  18. hi,

    can u plz tell me how to turn off the sensors while using keyboard as typing is becomin a difficult job


  19. i got my mi3 3 days back when i make call screen goes off i think i should remove the protecting film but main issue is even if i disable auto rotate screen the snaps still rotate while changing the orientation of phone and secondly it gets hot near mic during calls is it ok or i have to get it rplaced


  20. I have issues of the screen. its so sensitive! I tried the manual testing/calibration by dialing that special number and being taken to a special menu. fail on that test. restarting doesn’t solve the problem. is this a software problem? if not I’ll have this replaced asap. mine is already on KitKat.


  21. Hi thanks for the Do’s and Dont’s…I too own mi3 device.I have noticed one issue in mi3, can you please confirm if its a hardware issue or not? There is very little noise near earpiece of mi3 device while the screen is on. You can check this by keeping your phone near your ear and press lock and unlock button. Can you please confirm if your device too generates this noise.I just want to know if its normal or not.You can also hear this noise at back side(earpiece) of your phone.

    Thanks.

  28. Hello Deepak,

    I bought the Xiaomi-Mi3 a couple of weeks back, so far the phone has been doing well, no issues. However I am unable to use the “Emergency” call option that most high end phones have. How do I set up a Emergency Contact List to be used when the phone is in locked condition? I tried but could not. Appreciate your help and guidance.

    Regards

    Ravi


  29. Hi deepak,
    I bought my mi3 today. I installed almost all the applications successfully. I have added google account but it automatically sync all the google contacts. Is there any way so that I can only disable google contact sync? I tried with Setting->Sync-> Account-> Google . I can see the menu like App Data, Calendar, Contacts etc.. and only option available on each menu is . There is no option present to turn off the sync of particular menu. Please recommend something.


  30. Hello Sir,
    Got my Mi3on 22august..don’t find any such issues except one …sum letters seem to fade at the end.example …goolge settings written under the icon….is displayed on my phone as …goolge sett…..don’t know if its a defect or its like that only. And when call gets disconnected the screen automatically locks.


  31. Hello Deepak,
    I have been using the Mi3 since the first launch in July. The phone has been wonderful so far, although I am facing an issue and unable to identify a way. The Emergency Contacts list, when the phone is in locked condition is a common feature in most of the high end phones, but for some reason I am unable to setup the contact list under emergency.
    Appreciate your feedack regarding this issue. How do I set up the Emergency contact to be used in phone locked condition.
    Regards
    Ravi


  32. Hi All,
    I am facing some issue with the proximity sensor. At times my screen doesn’t wake up after the call get over or in middle of the call when I want to make a note etc.

    In middle of the call or after the call when I move the phone away from my ears, I screen doesn’t gain focus(light up after moving away).

    Just to update once more,

    Anyone faced a similar issue? Or any solution for this? Does this require calibration?

    PS: I do not have anything covering the proximity sensor.


    • Go to call settings>> incoming call settings and switch of proximity sensor, check if it is working after that. Contact Xiaomi Customer care hotline number as well


  33. hi sir,

The software is also updated. And I have tried using the “Open Camera” from Google play store but the problem remains. Please assist. My mi3 is not even a day old.

  40. hello deepak,
    i bought my xaiomi mi3 1 week back and the screen was broken due to a small accident but i think with corning gorilla glass it is impossible to break.
    i don’t know but i think i am facing the same brittle screen issue so many users reported.
    is it really gorilla glass or fake? now again it costs around Rs 6,000


  41. Hi Deepak
    I bought mi3 phone 3 weeks back and it’s working fine I am facing problem in accessing 3G if I am not using 3G more than one day I have to reboot the mobile once then only its working pl let know for any solutions


  42. Hi Deepak,
    I bought my mi3 on 1st of Sept, but the only issue i have been facing till now is the excessive heating while playing games like candy crush saga,asphalt 8 etc,is there any workaround to it ?
    My battery is in balanced mode, since power saving mode is now gone from MIUI 23 stable version.
    Please help.


    • Asphalt 8 heating is normal, but i didn’t feel too much heat with 15-20 minutes of candy crush. A good case perhaps The aluminum chassis inside makes heating prominent


      • I have ordered the flip cover meant for mi3 from flipkart, not sure how much heat screening will it give..do you think this heating issue can be solved by the awaiting MIUI updates?
        Since its an issue pertaining more to hardware optimization and improper material used for heat screening(800 Soc always heats up due to its strong processing power).

        Still hopeful with future MIUI updates..please confirm..!!


    • i didn’t observe much heating after 15 minutes of candy crush. A good case perhaps might be considered as a workaround. Since its aluminum chassis inside, you can feel more heat with Mi3


  43. Hi Deepak,
    Can you please suggest solution for frequent call drop?
    I removed default screen guard after a week,
    Now I read your review:( so please suggest some solution.


  44. Hi,
    I have a issue. In the blocked list for messages. Only the last message opens all the time even if you select any other messages in the list.

  49. Hi I have a Mi3 but the location service does not work on Google maps it keeps on showing “waiting for location” I have given all access for the apps.


  50. Hello Deepak,
    There is a problem I’m facing when I go to change the themes. All the heads like featured, popular, local, etc, are given in chinese. How do I convert it to English? Also, there is a special effect that other mi3’s have, i.e., when you turn off the scree, it gives a similar effect to that of a TV screen being turned off. How do you apply that?


  51. Hi Deepak- I am using my Mi 3, problem I am facing now is that sometimes there is no signal on my phone, but when I remove the SIM and put on another smart phone, no issues. Is this a problem related to the tray issues as I have seen some people complain the SIM tray of MI 3 for poor connection

  54. Hi,

And the aye saying that if you charge with some other charger than the software will be deleted.. Is it true?? Please help.


  55. Hello Deepak, i had bought mi3 phone in first sale on july 22nd, audio quality while making call using headphones is very poor, the sound is barely audible when using headphones , have tried headphones of sony , samsung, moto g and finally i even bought mi in ear piston headphones but the same problem . i can barely hear when i am using headphones.

  56. Hello Deepak,
    I bought the Mi3 phone 1 month before and these days I’m facing the issue with screen getting stucked frequently.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Vijay.


  57. Hi!
    I have noticed problems while on call. There are frequent cracks in the voice from the other end and the other person also complains that he is not able to hear me. This happens many a times while on call. The voice breaks for 5-6 seconds and then comes back.
    Also sometimes there is sudden call drop when the problem gets worse.
    Thanks!


  58. Hi Deepak,

    My friend has issue with the power button in mi3.
    Also, the charger (USB cord) doesn’t seem to work properly. Phone has
    been over a month. Any idea what should I do?


    • You have to get it checked at the service center. For temporary solution, there are several apps available like power button to volume button, button savior, etc.
      This is only a temporary solution. Most of these apps work best on rooted devices only.


  59. Hi sir,

  78. Dear Deepak,

    I’m using MI3 for past one year. recently my google accounts are not working. I thought some gmail connection issue but 2 days back while performing bank transactions to generate OTP, I found my SMS also not functioning.
    After detailed check, I came to know only my incoming and outgoing calls are working. other than that, all the apps, accounts, SMS etc., are not functioning. But interesting part is, these are working on very delay note. For example, I am able to receive SMS 1 day delay and similarly what’sapp etc.,
    So, I cannot say its completely not working but issues are there. How to overcome this issue. Now, even to Google play store ,I am not able to enter as it keeps telling me Retry!


  79. hello Dee pak,

    I am a mi3 user. I drop my phone into a glass of water. I pick it up immediately. I dried it with a towel and hair dryer. It was still working although I can see the water between the screen and phone body. when I dry with hair dryer, the screen turn on itself. i left the phone in the rice box for that night, but it did not work. That was like a month ago. now, the screen is all black, not turning on at all, but surprisingly, the touch is working as normal ; means I can use the phone as normal if I know where to touch the screen. May I know how to get the screen to get back to normal?

    Thank you


  80. MI3 I bought in China and using in India. There is no other phone on planet who has given me so much trouble than MI3. Between Xiomi and Google , all product related to google have some or other issues and you end up searching and reading internet for every small issues. My experience is after using this phone for 1 year. It keep sleeping from my hand and I have replaced screen twice which means already spent 12K on this, original cost I paid 1K more than India like 17K when flipkart was offering this on lottery basis for 16K. China version comes with chinese software and Application store. I feel stupid, frustrated, cheated. reason to write this review is If you are planning to buy this, i would say “Stay Away” Sometime I see phone is starting some application on its own.
