Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (Global Version) Review: You’d Be Crazy Not To Buy This
Source: Unbox English
The Redmi Note 5 isn’t perfect, no matter what Xiaomi diehards tell you: image quality from its dual-cameras are good but aren’t amazing, and that charging time is pretty slow for a device of its caliber. But if we’re honest, those are mostly nitpicking in an overall solid phone. Big battery means it’ll take a while before you completely drain it, a notchless display is heaven sent for the notch haters plus the addition of the SD 636 chipset means the phone is capable of demolishing any and all apps with ease.

80% Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 review: The best phone under Rs 10,000. Mostly
Source: India Today English
Xiaomi's success story, in India, is well worth a study. You can maybe do a documentary film on it. There will be so much to learn, and experience, and to get inspired. The Redmi Note 4 is a major part of that success story. It's done wonders for Xiaomi, and the smartphone market in India. Which is where, its successor becomes all the more important. The Redmi Note 5 has some big shoes to fill, and it does where it can, mostly because it keeps (intact) all the things that made the Redmi Note 4 so (very) likeable, and tries to add a modern twist to it, courtesy its near bezel-less design.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Review: Its good, but not a winner like the Redmi Note 5 Pro
Source: The Mobile Indian English
To conclude, the Redmi Note 5 is a modest update to the Redmi Note 4. The smartphone does come with the latest display trend, which gives some good performance. The battery is impressive, but that’s it. The user interface has its fair share of hits and misses and the camera can be considered as a downgrade from Redmi Note 4. So, if you are existing Redmi Note 4 users and want to upgrade, then we suggest you should shed some extra bucks and go for the Redmi Note 5 Pro as it makes much more sense.

The Redmi Note 5 ticks all the right boxes and offers a great package at a great price. For the very first time in years, Xiaomi has competition breathing down its neck. The Redmi Note 5 is no longer the budget king. That honor, punnily enough, goes to the Honor 9 Lite.

80% Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Review: Good Smartphone, But Average Upgrade
Source: Gadget Show English
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is a good smartphone in the price bracket of Rs 9,999. However, the smartphone is surely not the right upgrade for those who have Redmi Note 4. As, apart from larger display and some tweaks in the design there is nothing new that the phone offers when compared to Redmi Note 4. Apart from this, we also feel that the device faces tough competition from the company’s Redmi Note 5 Pro which comes with a starting price tag of Rs 13,999 and offers better specifications and dual rear camera setup. However, for buyers with a budget of Rs 10,000, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is a good bet. However, anyone who has even slightly higher budget should go for Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 review: A well-packaged smartphone
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Overall, Redmi Note 5 is a well-packaged smartphone. While there are a few areas of improvement but looking at the price point, Redmi Note 5 is worth our recommendation. Redmi Note 5 may not have the same premium look and feel like Honor 9 Lite, but its performance prowess gives an edge over the competition.

The great Redmi Note 4, now has a successor and the device is priced at Rs. 9,999 for the 3 GB/ 32 GB variant and Rs 11,999 for the 4 GB/ 64 GB variant. This means the smartphone goes in the market with very stiff competition around it.

Xiaomi has been quite innovative with its Redmi Note series. The Redmi Note 3 (Review) showed us how powerful a phone could while still remaining affordable, and the Redmi Note 4 (Review) impressed us for being power efficient as well. Xiaomi seems to have played it safe with the Redmi Note 5, and it feels like a Redmi Note 4 with a better screen and lower price to keep up with the times, which is not a bad thing at all. It takes a solid foundation and improves on it, giving Xiaomi another good all-rounder. With a starting price of Rs 9,999, the Redmi Note 5 offers tremendous value for money. Those with a higher budget who want a little more in terms of features and power can take a look at the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

On the software side, the Redmi Note 5 would have a greater advantage with the Oreo-out-of-the-box update, but sadly, it is still based on Android N with MIUI 9 on top. Phones in this range have started offering Android Oreo, Honor 9 Lite to name one.

Redmi Note 5 is a 2018 smartphone with a Full View display, though it doesn’t have dual cameras. For some users, especially those on Redmi Note 4, the new phone might seem like an upgrade given the processor is the same and the major change is the display. Still Xiaomi has made improvements to the rear camera.

Simply by looking at the spec sheet, the Redmi Note 5 can be said to be a Redmi Note 4 disguised under a brighter, taller 18:9 display. But spec-sheets rarely tell the full story. Despite having the same hardware, a lower entry-point in terms of pricing means the same hardware is now more affordable, which will allow Xiaomi to welcome more users to its ecosystem. More importantly, those same users will not be left disappointsed.

The Redmi Note 5 is not perfect – the camera still misses the beat – but it is a well-rounded package that one wouldn’t hesitate to recommend – especially if one needs a big screen and long battery life.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
