While the other hand rival, The Asus Zenfone 5 features a 5-inch display with 720 x 1080-pixel resolution with the pixel density of 293 ppi.

But the RAM options is same in both the devices and the working is also same which leads to choose over Asus Zenfone 5  than Xiaomi.


The Xiaomi Mi3 features 16 GB of on-board ROM with an option of a 64 GB variant on board ROM too. But the phone is not supported with a external SDcard Slot.A 12 GB and 60 GB of free Google Drive space is also given along with the ROM options. While the Asus Zenfone 5  features 8 GB on-board storage with an option of a 64GB expandable via mirco SD card slot.


The Xiaomi Mi3Â features the same UltraPixel sensor (f/2.0 aperture) found in the original Xiaomi Redmi phones, although it’s a better all-round performer than before. It also has a Duo Camera for depth perception which means that there’s a range of fancy features on offer, and 2-megapixel (f/2.0 aperture) front-facing camera which is excellent for selfies. But the front camera is not an HD version but resembles a high quality camera and resolution.

On the second half, the Asus Zenfone 5  features a 8-megapixel sensor with fast 0.8 second capture speed. The Asus Zenfone 5  camera is also known for the best photography so the Asus Zenfone 5  takes the lead in terms of camera.

Operating System:

The Xiaomi Mi3 features Android 4.4 KitKat and Sense 6.0. The Asus Zenfone 5  features Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and a new version of TouchWiz. Both have same operating systems but the Xiaomi Mi3 5  has a bigger advantage of the Android 5.0 lollipop update. So the Xiaomi leads in operating system over Asus Zenfone 5.


The Xiaomi Mi3Â features a 3050Â mAh battery that is supposedly 40 per cent more efficient than the first Xiaomi Redmi, which could last up to two days with even 3G services. However Xiaomi Mi3Â has added aggressive power saver options to make sure your device lasts the distance and it’s very impressive.

The Xiaomi Mi3 features a machined aluminium body that wraps around the sides making for a 90 per cent metal finish. There will be two colours available: black and coral white. It’s a triumph of design, it looks stunning and feels sensational to hold.

The Asus Zenfone 5  is mainly metallic, sticking to familiar design, but with a more tactile back for better grip. The big positives are that it is dustproof and resistant in liquid down to a metre in depth, and it’ll be available in single color of charcoal black.

The Xiaomi Mi3 feels like the slicker device in daily use. The user interface is faster and although it has less options and features, the interface feels more sophisticted and mature. It offers class-leading sound quality, a great display, but the real winner is the design. In the battle of these two giants, Xiaomi Mi3Â takes it, but only just.

The Asus Zenfone 5  offers a wider range of features and comes with great connectivity, a stunning display, plenty of power and a camera that performs well. However it feels like it could be faster in daily use and the unique features of the heart rate sensor and fingerprint scanner may well get turned off and ignored.


As per price, the Xiaomi Mi3 is available at Rs 4,920 and the Asus Zenfone 5  is available in India at a price tag of 10,000 INR. The colour variants are same for the devices.
