Xiaomi has also recently launched a new member of the Note family. Let’s talk about Redmi Note 5 that in India becomes Note 5 but that on paper is practically the same device. We have tried it for a long time and here you are our proof.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is a smartphone made from a large piece of metal that hugs the smartphone even on the sides, while the upper and lower edges are made of plastic. It is certainly not a compact smartphone, as it is not even a particularly light smartphone with its 181 grams of weight. Overall, however, it is quite well balanced in shape and is not particularly slippery. Too bad only for the slightly protruding and decentralized cameras that make the device wobble when used on a table.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 comes with a metal case body and has a thin-bezel design. It is available in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, Lake Blue color options. Just below the rear camera module, a fingerprint scanner is added for your convenience. The device sports a 5.99-inch IPS LCD full HD display which exhibits an excellent pixel density of 403 PPI.
Moving to the configuration, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is equipped with a Kryo 260 octa-core processor having a clock speed of 1.8GHz. The processor is placed on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC and it is coupled with a 4GB RAM. The combination is further assisted by an Adreno 509 GPU. Hence, the smartphone is perfect for gaming and heavy multitasking. It runs on Android 8.1 operating system and is skinned with the MIUI 9.5. a 64GB inbuilt storage is present and you can increase it up to 128GB by using a memory card.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has two main cameras available: a 12-megapixel ƒ / 1.9and a second 5-megapixel ƒ / 2.0 camera. This second camera can only be used together with the main camera to create discrete photos with blur effect. Overall this coupled turned out to be good, with shots overall better than average. The absence of a stabilizer penalizes him in the shots with less light, but after all, it is a bad thing that unites all the devices in this range. It can record videos up to Full HD resolution and although there is no option, it is always active electronic stabilization that does a good job. However, it is a good 13-megapixel ƒ / 2.2 front camera that makes a good selfie. Although there is no second camera, you can take pictures in portrait mode even from this camera.
4. Battery & Connectivity
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has a 4,000mAh Li-Polymer battery which supports quick charging. It keeps the show running for long hours and can be charged at a lightning fast speed.
