But let’s focus on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 what improvements will we find with respect to the previous Redmi Note 4?

Regarding storage, in the new Xiami Redmi Note 5, the card has been removed, leaving only two options as possible configurations, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. If we want a greater capacity, we would have to opt for the Pro that offers up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage memory, becoming the first Redmi with 6GB.
Let’s go now with the Camera side. Here if the differences are minimal. If in the Redmi Note 4 had a 13Mp Rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and front camera is 5MP, with the classic beauty modes of Xiaomi and LED flash in the back, with the Redmi Note 5 not only do not find a higher resolution, but it goes down to 12Mp rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, yes, with LED flash, while maintaining 5Mp for the front camera, also with LED included.
For whom the subject of the camera is important, the best option without a doubt is the new dual camera of the Note 5 Pro. We went from the 5Mp of the Note 5 to 20Mp with the Pro version. In addition and thanks to its dual cameras, the Note 5 Pro enter fully into the fight between the cameras that offer the option of the blur, type Samsung Galaxy Note 8. No doubt a camera with a performance to match the best we can find in the market.
