Apart from smartphones, Xiaomi also manufactures other home-products like routers,fans,air conditioners, smart homes systems etc. The Mi Router 3C is an excellent wireless router by Xiaomi at a really great budget considering its performance and compatibility .
The router is well-built with 4 external antennae’s which is really awesome at this price. The four antennae’s are non-removable which is common in most router’s in this price segment. Inside the box, we get the actual product itself, a white power adapter which is a two pin 240 v/0.2 A and an instruction booklet . The router has one multicolored status led on the front. It lets u know the status of the internet connection.

Xiaomi MI Router 3C – My Thoughts ?
Now coming to the crucial part, would I recommend the Mi Router 3C from Xiaomi? Yes!! There is almost no router in this budget margin that can beat the speed,performance,usability and features of the Xiaomi Mi 3C router. The router is well-thought for and executed by Xiaomi.
This router is ideal fro average home usage scenarios like Netflix,YouTube watching and some light gaming. But if you are an avid gamer, I suggest you you go for gaming router’s in Rs.5000-10000 range.
