What type of error are you getting…?
In my xiaomi mi3 whenever I open something for the 1st time like the other day I was trying to do a video call on hangouts, and suddenly a page appeared saying hangouts is trying to use your camera, there were 2 options accept and deny. Bymistake Iclicked on deny and now whenever I try to video call it says camera error.this happening with other apps too.
Its a rare problem but you can try
Settings >> Battery and check if mm-qcamera-daemon is running. If it is running exit the app and again relaunch the application. I hope this fill fix your problem.

Go to setting-> General settings-> Apps-> Whatsapp (or any other app where you have a problem)-> Manage permission and click on Use camera

Im a avid fan of mi3 but i have a big problem with the battery.. By the time my battery low and try to charge it wont charge anymore. So i need to off the Mi3 for a day or 2 for me to charge it again. Do you have solution for this?
Try recharging your device with all apps close. But I doubt it is a defective battery so ask for replacement.
Long battery charging time
Someone ask me to charge mi3 with Samsung charger. Then it will charge normally. Is it possible that charging with xiaomi power bank can solve this issue.
Avoid using your device while charging. Turn off mobile data and GPS while charging. Also I am not sure about the power bank performance.
Resently i updeted my mi4 with new rom. And now i can not open PDF file. What should i do to fix the problem?
Go for any other app to load pdf files or check the forum of rom developer.

Clear all hangout cache files and then try to re-install. Else you can install hangout from apk file also.

I am using MI3 it was working fine even when I use 2G for 7 hours and 5 hours WIFI,
but after the updating the latest version of MIUI(KXDMIBh34.0), the battery of the phone is start getting discharge drastically, I can say it is now 50% of battery I used in past,
Can you please give some input on it.
Dear Irfan you can download some battery saving apps like DU battery saver or battery doctor. Or wait till Xiaomi roll out some new update.
In my MI3 All was Good. But recently I kept my MI3 near window by mistake which was Raining outside.There was some drops of water when i noticed and Now my Touch screen is not working.Help me out please……
I advise you to visit Xiaomi service center. No temporary solution could help you much.
Can I know why the contact list in mi3 will disappear bit by bit everyday? For example there are 100 contacts, but the next day some contact will lost and become 70 contacts only.
How should I solve it?
First check if you are using more than 1 contact type. Like contacts for whatsapp and calls seperately. If still problem occurs then try to save contacts in phone memory.
MI3..when i played the music it become hang and played the same music all over againn again..the touch screen unfunctional

Try using any alternate music app like poweramp. If problem continues then first clear all running apps then play music app.

Hi, good day. I have a Xiaomi Mi3 Phone and it’s running like a charm, until one day when I update the MIUI from ver 23 to ver 34, I’m experiencing lag on games that I play (the most obvious ones are Brave Frontier) , The graphics are not smooth when the battle in on. It’s like framerate spike or lag. Sometimes it’s smooth, and times it dropped to 0 and then it’s smooth again, jerky framerate imo. Would you please help me to resolve this issue please? Thanks in advance! (Currently using MIUI-KXDMIBH34.0)
P.S. (Before update, I was using ver 23 and it was buttery smooth in every games)
I advise you to remove cache files of that app and then try to play.
My MI3 seems to be restarting each time i try and open thecamera… its not working through whatsapp or the normal camera icon- its restarts.. cleared cache and have tried a graceful shutdown/restart. Any solution?
Try using any other camera app. I hope it will fix your problem.
I am using Xiaomi mi3, I am getting an error message “Camera Error” whenever i trying to video chat in Google hangouts app.
Please help ASAP !!!
Clear all cache files and then try to check out hangout. I hope this will work
I am facing an issue I wonder why is it not discussed more often.The MI3 has some multitasking issues.It has poor app sustainability.For an example,if I open subway surfers,then Google maps,then music,then whatsapp…after that when I go back to subway surfers,it restarts again.This is the ONLY problem I have faced with MI3,poor app sustainability and auto app release from memory.This happens with games,browsers and any kind of apps.I rooted the phone and installed RAM MANAGER PRO,and set my custom values(just 1 MB for visible apps,foreground apps,hidden apps) for RAM managements,it worked fine for some minutes,I was even able to multitask between 3-4 heavy games without autoclose of any of them.but after sometimes,again the problem started to occure. Again multitasking became poor and apps started to close automatically when I swich between them.I will be grateful sir if you can find me a solution.Except this problem,MI3 is as excellent as it can get.
I hope these methods will be helpful for you
Download any RAM booster app like clean master and try to free up some RAM before going for any multitasking. If this method wasn’t helpful then i suggest you to reroot your device.
