Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is a new smartphone that truly stands out because it comes with an amazing display with tiny bezels at the front.
Main specs: 5.99 inch Display, 18:9 Aspect ratio, 2160×1080 pixels screen, 403 pixels per inch, 3.5mm earphone port, 13.0MP Front camera, Dual Back camera 12.0MP + 5.0MP, 120 fps support, Bluetooth 5.0, Fingerprint scanner, Face recognition, 4000mAh Battery with 5V/2A charging, 8.05mm Thickness and 181 grams in weight!
The OS Redmi Note 5 is using is a skin on top of Android being called MIUI 9. It’s using Snapdragon 636 chipset with an Octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz. The GPU is the strong Adreno 509. In terms of storage for photo, video and music you get 32GB + option to expand memory with external 128GB TF card! The RAM inside is 3GB! I would like to see 4GB there instead.
This phone also comes with super fast 4G data speeds. It has Dual SIM card support with Nano type cards.
It comes in a cool sea Blue colour, a pink edition and what from what I could see also a Black edition. The Dual rear camera has Apple iPhone X traffic light design. Which will probably make the phone lie down unsteady on a surface. Which can become a problem for some.
At least what’s good with a camera design like that is that it’s located far away from the rear fingerprint sensor. This phone design reminds me about LG G6. Many phones these days to stand out from each other tries to use different software. Since the hardware design starting to look similar on most new devices.
The selfie camera at the front on Redmi Note 5 has support for selfie softlight. To create brighter photos. This phone’s display will be a bit too big for many but great for people playing games, watching movies or browsing the internet. Hopefully it comes with a features to use two apps side by side as Samsung offers in Samsung Galaxy S8!
