If you’re looking for an affordable smartphone with a good set of cameras and powerful innards, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is one of the top options on the table. Of course, you’ll also want to keep other options open because it’s notoriously hard to buy anything in Xiaomi’s flash sales, where stocks are sold within a few seconds each week.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is Xiaomi's strongest showing in the budget segment in the last two years, and puts the brand in a great position as we head into the launch cycle for 2018. The 18:9 display is a much-needed change to keep the device competitive, and the Snapdragon 636 ensures class-leading performance for the foreseeable future.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Review: A 'Pro' in almost every department
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro does come with solid specifications and performance is decent as well. The display looks good, but lack of app scaling option leaves the black screen. The camera does a good job in most cases and the bokeh effect surely looks good. The battery is impressive and the user interface is lighter. The user interface does have a fair share of drawbacks and it is not one of the gorgeous-looking smartphone available in the market. To conclude, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro turns out to be a pretty interesting device if you are ready to bear with its negatives.

If you have the Redmi Note 4 or even the older Redmi Note 3, upgrading to the Redmi Note 5 might not be so appealing, given the processor is still Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. The Redmi Note 5 Pro has a lot more points in its favour, including the better processor, improved camera with newer features and yes that big display.

Priced at Rs 13,999 for the 4GB RAM variant, the Redmi Note 5 Pro ticks all the right boxes for a good mid-range allrounder with good design and build, great display, excellent performance, best in class camera and good battery life. While there are some minor issues like lack of Oreo at launch and the hybrid slot along with lack of type C port, these can be easily forgiven for the excellent value the device offers.

The Xiaomi Note 5 Pro is hands down a great phone. It has a powerful processor and a good camera, not just on paper but in experience as well. The FHD+ display in an 18:9 aspect ratio is an added perk. The device comes in two storage variants of 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage at Rs 13,999, which is dirt cheap for the kind of specs it offers.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is the eventual evolution of the Redmi Note series. It may be priced a bit higher in the budget to mid-range segment, but its performance easily makes up for its price hike. Add to this is brand new chipset and it takes down the Honor 7x, Honor 9i, the Moto X4, Vivo V7 Plus, Coolpad Cool Play 6 and even the Oppo A83.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
As for the competition, we like the look of the Honor 9 Lite but the Redmi Note 5 Pro has a leg up in some key areas such as camera and battery life and as such would be our pick of the two. What we would personally like to see is an Android One version of this phone, but we wouldn't be holding our breath for that.

90% Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro offers plenty of reasons to spend that extra bit of money over the Redmi Note 5. The list of improvements includes a better set of cameras, slightly better battery life, and a more powerful processor - all of which make the usage experience just a bit nicer. The weight of the phone is something you will have to get used to, and even though it isn’t very striking to look at, the build quality is solid. We love the new taller display, which is sharp and has very good sunlight legibility.

Source: Tech PP English
All of which makes the Redmi Note 5 Pro the latest topping on what is already a very crowded mid-segment phone pizza menu. But given what it brings to the table, we are sure that many will opt for it. There is not too much it gets wrong and a lot which it gets absolutely spot on. We would say that if the Note 5 is the nominal successor to the Note 4, the Note 5 Pro is its spiritual one. Used a Redmi Note 4? Then THIS is the upgrade you were really looking for.

80% Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro review: With great power comes great responsibility
Source: India Today English
But with great power also comes great responsibility. While good hardware is always appreciated, good hardware with dated software is also frowned upon. You can be X, Y or Z, it really doesn't matter. Simply because hardware can only take you so far. A great number of deeds done by Xiaomi -- in the past -- have revolved around it paying heed to consumer demand. And consumers are making their stand clear: they also want good -- read updated -- software. It's about time, Xiaomi starts thinking about that aspect too.
