Both the Apple iPhone 5S and Xiaomi Mi 3 were two of the best smartphones from 2013 and they are still selling well today due to their cheap price tags. As such, we have decided to compare both phones again to remind you on which device to purchase.
Looking at the Apple iPhone 5S, the device feature a 4” retina display that generates 326ppi. The Xiaomi Mi 3, on the other hand, features a 5” screen with a sharper pixel count of 441ppi.
Under the hood, the Apple iPhone 5S is powered by the 1.3GHZ 2-core A7 processor with 1GB of RAM and PowerVR G6430 GPU. Unfortunately, this is not as fast as the 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 330 GPU.
Even on cameras, the Apple iPhone 5S is short of the Xiaomi Mi 3 as it is only able to offer 8MP and 1.2MP shooters. The latter has a whopping 13MP rear camera and a 2MP front snapper to toy with.
To confirm that the Xiaomi Mi 3 is the better smartphone, it features a long-lasting 3050mAh battery unit that can last more than a day. The Apple iPhone 5S has a much smaller 1560mAh battery unit that can only offer up to 10 hours of talk time.
