Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Review: Camera, Specs, Features, Performance, And More

The company is focusing on mid-range phones.

The new Redmi Note 5 series has received an upgrade over its predecessor in terms of display size and screen resolution.

After the great success of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the company has made a decision to bring these latest and upgraded versions of Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro.

The Redmi 5 Plus boasts a 5.99-inch display while the Redmi 5 comes with a 5.7-inch display. It offers 18:9 aspect ratio which makes the device taller.

This smartphone from OnePlus is engineered by 1.9GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that is paired with an enormous 6GB of RAM. The 16 GB storage with 2 GB RAM variant is now eliminated which left us only two variants - 32 GB storage with 3 GB RAM and 64 GB storage with 4 GB RAM.

To please the shutterbugs, the Redmi Note 5 comes with a 12 MP rear camera. The camera samples also turned out to be good and the selfies captured in low-light were also fine. There are four color options for this device. The company has launched two variants of this device each with different RAM and onboard storage.

But readers have been posed with more confusion since there is subtle difference between Note 5 and the Note 5 Pro. Under the hood, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is the first to use Qualcomm's 14nm Snapdragon 636 processor that utilises Kyro 260 CPU cores.

Xiaomi will selling both Redmi Note 5 Pro and Redmi Note 5 on February 22. The Chinese electronics brand has 23 Mi Home stores across seven cities in India, but they are owned by franchisees and managed by Xiaomi. It is the first budget smartphone from Xiaomi to come with a bezel-less display. The display is protected by a layer of 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass for protection against wear.

Both the devices offer excellent specifications for the price and the choice of one device over the other boils down to the price and what the user expects from the phone. The device also features Adreno 509 GPU which offers rich graphical interface.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro also becomes the first device in mid-range line-up by Xiaomi to feature 6GB of RAM. We spent a few hours with the new Redmi Note 5 smartphone and here's what we have to say in our initial impressions. A 12-megapixel Sony IMX 485 sensor is created to capture still images with 1.25-micron-meter pixels.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is making a global debut in India.

The front Selfie-light on the Redmi 5 Plus allows users to capture attractive selfies even in low-light conditions. You can record full HD videos and can make high quality video calls through the device as well. The Face Unlock feature works faster than the fingerprint sensor on the device, Xiaomi claims. It offers top-notch specs and a decent build at a price that's hard to beat.

Redmi Note 5 Pro will ship with MIUI 9 which is based on Android 7 operating system.
