  • Pros
  • 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.
  • Cons
  • 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.
