Verdict
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 faces competition from the Nokia 3, Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt, Motorola Moto E4 Plus, Infocus Vision 3, and Xiaomi's own Redmi Y1. Among all the competitors, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 has the best display, longest battery backup, and also the fastest and smoothest performance. The device lived up to the exception in every criteria except the lowlight performance from the primary camera. I think the lousy lowlight performance isn't a deal-breaker as the device has many more things to offer. For the price, I think the Redmi 5 is the best smartphone one can buy if they can get their hands on one, that is
