Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (32 GB): Pros & Cons

out of 10
MSP Score
Compared to its predecessor, the Redmi Note 5 comes with a bigger screen with minimal bezels. We now get on-screen navigation buttons on a mid-range Xiaomi phone (finally!). The rear-facing camera is commendable. Selfies are also good thanks to the front-facing LED flash. The fingerprint reader is also surprisingly fast. Furthermore, the included IR emitter and Mi Remote come in handy for operating electronic appliances.
It is surprising that Xiaomi did not offer Android 8.0 on a 2018 phone by default. Furthermore, the UI stutters here and there. The rear camera is incapable of 1080p 60fps video recording. The phone also misses out on a dedicated microSD card slot.
The Redmi note 5 in a much-needed upgrade over the Redmi Note 4. The large display with minimal bezels certainly helps with the viewing experience. While there were a few UI hiccups, the overall performance was still decent. The phone is indeed well worth its price. However, a few thousand Rupees more will get you the Redmi Note 5 Pro which offers a much better deal.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Details

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is the successor to one of the most popular smartphone in India, the Redmi Note 4. The Redmi Note series from Xiaomi had achieved a great success due to its solid build quality, great battery life, and ample processing power. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 carries forward the same design from its predecessor that includes metal unibody with a symmetrical design. Redmi Note 5 price in india starts from Rs. 13,999.
Display & Camera
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is equipped with a 5.9-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display, but this time around, the display brightness and overall performance have been improved. The screen on the Redmi Note 5 is covered with Gorilla Glass 4 to protect it from accidental drops and scratches. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 sports a 12-megapixel primary camera with phase detection autofocus and dual-tone dual-LED flash. The front-facing camera remains the same as 5-megapixels. The increase in camera resolution results in a better image quality. The videos are now recorded at 4K resolution.
Hardware & Software
To attract the ‘core-crazy’ Indian crowd, Xiaomi has used Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor for the Redmi Note 5. The new processor has two more cores than the processor in the Redmi Note 4, but it is still behind in terms of performance and power efficiency. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 comes standard with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. Xiaomi is also offering variants with higher storage options. The Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS comes pre-installed on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 with company’s MIUI 9. The device has high chances to receive Android O operating system too.
Battery & Connectivity
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 packs a 4,000 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery. The battery is a tad smaller than the one found on its predecessor, but it won’t make much of a difference as the battery consumption is taken care by Android Nougat’s battery optimisation. This time around, Xiaomi has equipped the device with Quick Charge 3.0 for faster, cooler, and efficient charging. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is connected via dual-SIM dual-standby 4G LTE along with VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v4.2, and USB 2.0 port.
