The system warns for your downgrade. tap on the Ok button. Now some process goes on and phone reboot automatically after reboot you are on the Previous version of MIUI. Clear the Wipe cache data.

      And if you want MIUI 8, if you friendly with Flashing, rooting then go for Global developer ROM for more details read from below link
      Else please wait, In August you get Stable MIUI 8. you receive the update via OTA.

  19. Hallo.

    Just bought the Redmi note 3 pro and the battery is stuck at 2%.

    When charging, the battery charges but the phone does not get this input so the indication always remains at 2% with the red led flashing continuously and low brightness mode on.

    Can you please help.

    Thank you.

    1. Hi Pantelis Chrys,
      We are sorry for the inconvenience you faced. Please charge your Redmi note 3 through another charger. when phones charged 50-55% charged. Then try with your original charger.
      Kind Regards

      1. Dear grprajapat,

        Thank you for your response.

        I have already tried:
        – A number of different chargers
        – Letting the device to fully discharge and then charging it at power off mode with original charger (that is working with no issues)
        – Pressing the on/off button for 10 seconds when fully discharged and then charging

        The issue is tha the battery works fine (it charges and discharges normally) but the device does not receive any input from the battery status. Even if the battery is at 100% charge, the ui shows -2 percent and the red led is continously flashing.

        Any other fixes?

        Thank you in advance.

        Best regards.

        1. Hi Pantelis Chrys,
          Sorry for the delay in the response. Please reset your phone. After the reset, you still face problem then please visit nearest Xiaomi service center.

  20. Hi,
    My redmi note 3 is not getting charged. Battery has been drained out completely and phone has been switched off. After inserting the charger red LED is blinking continuously.

    Please help

  21. At night at keep my phone at 30%but at morning when i look into it it is about 10%. I think it is by the temperature. Normally we should keep our mobile in cool place but i kept in hot place. Will u agree this?

    1. Hi Sanjai,
      Nowadays hardware designed for both of the conditions. there is no effect where you use. But yes, a very high temperature surely effects the phone performance.

      Kind Regards

  22. Hi, recently I bought a Redmi Note 3, after the about one week, I kept phone for charging when it was at 40% and forgot about it, two hours later I removed it from charging, as it was 100%, so clearly battery was overcharged for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, does it affect the battery, as the battery is non-removable.

    1. Hi Jairaj,
      Sorry for the delay in the response. In your case, there are no things to worry. Nowadays phones are too smart when your phone full charged then the system automatically off the power connection.
      Enjoy Xiaomi services without these small worries.
      Kind Regards

    Initially, the phone was on MIUI 7.3 ? Based on some comments on the web forums, I upgraded to MIUI Global (LHOMIDG). However, the problem still persist.
    Any suggestions to fix the problem?

      1. Thanks for your prompt reply.

        Will ‘wipe cache data’ have any impact on my phone data (like contacts, SMS, music, photos etc?)
        Do I need to take backup of my data before clearing the cache?

        1. Sorry, I have one more question:
          How to clear the wipe cache data?

          a) Through security app
          b) A hard reset by choosing Wipe & Reset and then Wipe Cache (I haven’t tried this option yet)

          1. Hi Sagar,
            Cler the wipe cache data option does not impact your storage (like contacts, SMS, music, photos etc). But if you choose wipe and reset option then all personal data surely deleted by the system.
            For Wipe reset please switch off your phone. then on with Volume up button means
            Volume up + Power button
            Now you are in Mi Recovery. Choose your options here.
            Kind Regards

  54. Hello,

    Just bought 2 Redmi note 3 Pro’s and upgraded them to the latest global Rom from the website.
    I noticed that at least one of them went down around 25-30% during the night while the phone was inactive.

    I have read a bit about this and there is quite a few that say that this is a bug in the latest MIU 8 version?
    Is there some tips that i can try besides downgrade to the 7 version of the MIU OS?

    I have enabled battery saving mode and some other things, but this feels like something with the kernel and some rogue process or services that does not go into sleepmode.


      1. Thanks for the tip.

        But i am unable to get the phone into recovery mode if that is what it’s called.
        I am trying to press the volume up and the power button but i allways end up at the black screen that show the outlines of the phone with a disconnected cable at the bottom. i can connect the cable to the pc and then the image will show that the cable is connected?

        I have tried to hold both buttons until the screen show up, i have released the power button after the phone starts up, while keeping the volume up pressed.

        But just seem to end up on the same screen, i think this is called the fast boot screen where you can enter commands from the computer?

        Any help would be great.

  55. Hey I’m currently using Redmi 3s prime which has equivalent featured to that if Redmi note 3. Recently I have noticed that my battery drains a lot over night. Yesterday I charged it to a complete 100% used it until it turned 96% and made sure I closed all the apps running in the background and switched off all the extra activities like WiFi, GPS etc and also reduced the brightness.
    But as I checked my battery in the morning it has drained almost upto 12%. It was 84%.
    I bought this phone due to this special feature of battery if 4100 mah and didn’t expect this issue happening.
    Can you tell me a remedy?

  56. I use xender on my mi note 3
    After some time phone is automatically switch off,after than i try to it switch on then so far time its on ..

  57. Redmi note 3 battery drains quickly (overnight or otherwise) with MIUI8 or probably even earlier versions.
    This problem troubled me for days together. I have seen a lot of people complaining about it, but with no satisfactory response.

    Here are few things which worked for me (after trying out different combinations and permutations)
    Besides the usual suggestion (disable GPS, Wifi when not in use), try the following:
    With moderate use, the battery now works for more than a day.

    Disable the following
    1. Battery -> Power Saver > Clear cache when device is locked . Set this option to Never
    2. Vibration on keypad entry
    3. Do not apply custom themes

    Enable the following
    1. Battery -> Turn off mobile data when device is locked . Set this option to 5 min or 10 min as needed
    2. Enable 2G (instead of 3G) as phone network. It helps in saving battery
    3. Enable the option ‘Save power when device is locked’

    Also, I will suggest use google keyboard rather than any custom keyboard

  58. HI,
    I have a redimi note 3, 32GB variant. After using it for 7 days, at the 8th day the phone suddenly gets turned off though I had used it only for 1 hour after almost fully charging it. And from that time, the phone is not getting turned on. Each time while I am plugging it with the charger, the red led light keeps blinking for some time and then led also gets disappeared. But The phone is not getting turned on. I have tried with other charger also. But the result remains the same. I had tried for Volume+ and Power also. But no result.
    Please let me know if there is any solution for that.

        Ans : Already disabled.
        3. Do not apply custom themes
        Ans : Only default theme in use.

        Enable the following
        1. Battery -> Turn off mobile data when device is locked . Set this option to 5 min or 10 min as needed
        Ans : Not able to find this in MIUI 8.
        2. Enable 2G (instead of 3G) as phone network. It helps in saving battery
        Ans : Already done.
        3. Enable the option ‘Save power when device is locked’
        Ans : Not able to find this in MIUI 8.

  60. My Redmi Note 3 worked well for initial 2 months and battery used to last for about 4-5 days. Gradually the performance declined and now sometimes my battery lasts less than a day. I have done multiple factory resets and phone goes back to normal performance, just once, after every factory resets. And eventually performance degrades agains. I also upgraded to MIUI8 but the problem persists.

    Android is keeping the phone awake in night hours even when I dont use it. Other things such as wifi, gps, bluetooth are are turned off. I even installed the Doze app but the situation has not changed. I ma using the Ultimate mode of batter saver. Please help

    1. Hi JK,
      Please follow above instructions which are shared in articles and comments. We also submit a bug in MIUI forum. Hope resolve in next updates.
      Kind Regards

  61. Hey there! Ok since the battery drain issue is a common thing now i wont speak about that.
    But i am facing another problem here. Since the update, my phone is taking like 10 hours to charge itself. During the old days, the phone used to heat a bit while charging and it would charge in no time but now the charge increases by 1 percent after charging it for like 20 minutes. 🙁
    Also, I have been putting my phone on charge at night and sleeping since two weeks and in d morning i would see it would be full and it was working fine. But since last week even if i am putting it on charge at night, after 6 hours or more it the charge will go up to like 80 percent from 30 percent. I mentioned the putting it on charge and sleeping for i want to know if putting it on charge for a very long time ruined my charger or battery or both. But as far as i remember, it was working fine and the day i updated my phone, it started behaving weird. Also: If m putting my phone on charge and surfing or chatting the battery light goes off within 3-4 minutes. But if i remove the charger cable then it makes a sound also( of removing). On the other hand, before sleeping if i put it on charge, at morning my phone still keeps charging, the charging light remains on and it reaches 70 or 75. I bought the phone 5 months ago. I just want to know if it is the update or my battery. Plus: I tried to charge my friends phone with my charger and it was working fine and quick. Please help 🙁

    2. why most of the smart phones are heating and irritating
    the user why doesn’t the manufacturers look in this part instead they are busy in competition with other brands, the charge drains also when the mobile is idle with out sim wifi & apps are closed is this fair. The level of battery given is 4000 mah if it is around 2500 or 3000mah what will happen ??? critically confused

  67. Hi,
    I got a new redmi note 3 32gb. Out of the box the phone had 36 percent charge instead of usual storage charge of 50%. I fully charged it. Generally most phones stay at 100% for some time and come down to 99. This phone came down to 99 in under 1 minute. Now after 45 minutes screen usage and 4 hours stand by. Battery at 78%. Wi-Fi scanning, GPS, Bluetooth are all off. Is this a defective piece? Version is 7360. This is not my first mi phone. I own mi3 and mi 5. There is no process that’s eating up the battery in particular. Everything seems normal. Just the battery going down fast. Any suggestions? Am moving abroad next week, don’t know what to do.

    1. Hi Sachin,
      Please update your phone with MIUI 8.
      If you get the battery from Mi Store then definitely it is original. Please don’t buy from Ebay or any other third party eCommerce site. Always buy from Mi Official website.
      Kind Regards

  69. Hi,

    I have updated my Redmi Note 3 to MIUI 8 2 weeks back. But now my battery drains very fast. Especially during nights it drains about 30%. Before MIUI8 I had Developer ROM of MIUI8, but did not face any issue that time.

    When I see the battery usage,45% is used by Android and 39% is used by Android System.

    Please let me know if there is any Solution for this?

      1. I have tried to clear the cache data as suggested in the above post in the recovery mode. But whenever I go to recovery mode, it shows a picture to plugin the USB to the mobile.

        I am not sure what is that. I am not getting any other options.

        Please suggest if any other options are there.

        And I have also tried Security-> Cleaner Options. But still the same issue. This is really frustrating and not at all satisfied with this phone.
