Earlier this week, Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi 3, a phone that’s jam-packed with great hardware for an incredibly affordable price. Phone manufacturer and competitor Lenovo doesn’t want Xiaomi hogging the spotlight all the time and has released its own power-packed, aggressively priced smartphone called the Lenovo Lemon 3.

On paper, the Lenovo Lemon 3 is on par with the Xiaomi Redmi 3 in terms of sheer performance, seeing that both devices employ the same Snapdragon 616 processor with 2GB RAM and Adreno 405 graphics. However, the Lemon 3 one-ups the Redmi 3 in terms of display resolution, speaker technology (Dolby with Maxx Audio) and profile thickness. On the other hand, the Redmi 3 has a superior battery capacity and camera autofocus.
