The new Xiaomi Redmi 5 has been announced for the Indian market. But should you buy it? What are the Pros and Cons? Come, let’s have a look.
Pros & Cons of Xiaomi Redmi 5
Xiaomi has come out with official technical specifications and the lot with the Redmi Note 5. Expected to be available soon, the Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 5 for the Indian market yesterday. The phone is priced in the mid-range level, and there are many phones that are already reigning high in that field. But the Redmi 5 seems to be prepared with the specifications it comes with. How do the Pros and Cons weigh?
Pros of Xiaomi Redmi 5
The Redmi Note 5 boasts a gorgeous display of 720 x 1440 pixels, and also with an 18:9 ratio. Such ratio can assure clear and sharp images in the 5.7-inch screen, which is the right size for the palm. Not too big, not too small. The screen can display 16M colors, all packed into an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen.
The Redmi 5 has done a great deal of work when coming to the design. Though not much of an improvement from last years design, the Redmi 5 shows off a unibody metallic design that has some beautiful design that fits the phone perfectly in the palm. The phone also has some pretty thin bezels, thus conserving a lot of screen estate. In the back, the camera and the fingerprint sensor are cut of beautifully, seamlessly integrating to the back-body design.
There is also a huge relief when coming to storage. At a time when not many companies give an option of expandable storage, Xiaomi has gone ahead and given the option of external storage. Xiaomi has also not been stingy when coming to internal storage as well. With variants ranging from 16GB or 32GB, everyone can choose the storage space most comfortable for them.
Cons of Xiaomi Redmi 5
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 has not been a good show when coming to the camera aspect of the phone. With the primary camera being of only 12MP and the front being 5MP, the phone has made a very bad cut to the camera, and it may lose Redmi many customers. With many phones boasting of much better cameras in the same price range, Redmi will be having a tough time competing with them.
The battery in the Redmi 5 is a non-removable 3300 mAh battery. And though that might be not that bad when considering the price of the phone, it is not enough for the average phone user. Throw in social networking, multimedia, and calling, and what you will be left with is a depleted and slow battery.
Though the Xiaomi Redmi 5 had a lot of expectations to handle, it has pulled off a fairly good
job. Though it has also made some sharp cuts that might hurt a few users, the Redmi 5 is now
the current flagship of the company. Would you consider to buy the Redmi 5 as your daily
