About the Phone

Pros:

 

  • It has a solid build quality and design, suitable for comfortable one-hand usage.
  • It features a tall 5.7 inch HD + display.
  • The battery backup is impressive.
  • MIUI 9.1 is feature-rich and highly customizable.
  • The Fingerprint Sensor is fast and accurate.
  • The overall performance is commendable.
  • It offers great value-for-money.

Cons:

 

  • The screen resolution is insufficient for the 5.7-inch display.
  • It does not have fast charging support.
  • It does not have NFC.
  • It runs on a dated Android version (Nougat).

Despite the few shortcomings, the Redmi 5 appears to be a reliable daily driver with an affordable price tag. For those who are constrained by a limited budget, the Redmi 5 is an excellent option. However, if you can manage to shell out a little extra, it’s better to go for the Redmi Note series.
