Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (Black, 3 GB RAM/32 GB)

About the Phone

Redmi Note 5 is heavier than its previous model which gives it a bit of sturdiness. There are some notable changes in design and display making it a good match for the budget flagship models in the market. However, it does not seem like a significant upgrade over the Redmi Note 4.

By introducing minimal bezels and removing the capacitive navigation keys, Redmi Note 5 takes its place in the flagship competition. The new 18:9 aspect ratio is impressive and gives the phone a significant modification. It is heavier than before, but there are only slight changes in the design making it look similar to its predecessor.

Redmi Note 5 is fitted with the same dependable processor as Note 4 and comes with a Xiaomi-assured great battery that can last for a day and more. The camera is decent for the price though low-light shooting is not up to the mark. There is no stabilization present, but that cannot be expected at this range.

But all of this isn’t enough. Xiaomi must bring in some substantial changes to endure the tough flagship market. Redmi Note 5 remains a device of the past, and it is not recommended for people looking for an upgrade from Note 4. For people going for new phones to have a sneak peek into the new flagship features, Redmi Note 5 might be a good choice, though there are better products in the market.
