Xiaomi Redmi 3S Launched in India Starting at Rs 6,999; Features Metal Body and 4100mAh Battery

Xiaomi has pulled the wraps from its latest budget offering the Redmi 3S. The device comes in two variants, one with a 16GB Storage/2GB RAM and the other with 32GB Storage/3GB RAM (and named Redmi 3S Prime). It is pleasing to see that Xiaomi has introduced the Redmi 3S for the Indian market only a month after it was first revealed in China. In essence, the Redmi 3S is an iterative upgrade for the Redmi 3 and it packs quite some punch in terms of hardware and features.


The Redmi 3S has a metal body and comes equipped with a 5-inch HD display and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 430 SoC clocked at 1.1GHz and paired with a 2GB/3GB RAM. The graphics are handled by an Adreno 505 GPU. On the memory front, the Redmi 3S offers either 16GB/32GB Storage depending on the variant. However, the Hybrid microSD card slot common to both the variants can accommodate up to 128GB.

Redmi 3S features a 13-Megapixel primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor, both of which are capable of recording video at FHD. Redmi 3S runs on MIUI 7 based on the Android Lollipop and is backed by a humongous 4,100mAh battery pack. Furthermore, the Redmi 3S Prime also features a Fingerprint sensor at the back and comes in a metal body. The connectivity options include 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Micro-USB. Both models will be initially available exclusively on and Flipkart, starting with Redmi 3S Prime on 9 August, followed by Redmi 3S a week or two later.

The Redmi 3S is definitely a much better bet as opposed to the Redmi 3, thanks to the upgraded hardware and the features. The design lines look much more elegant on the Redmi 3S and with a price of Rs 6,999 for the 16GB ROM/2GB RAM version, and Rs 8,999 for 32GB ROM/3GB RAM version, it is surely expected to heat up the competition. Xiaomi has been trying to regain their lost ground when it comes to the budget Android segment and it is devices like the Redmi 3S which will help them achieve the same.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …
