Redmi 5 First Impressions

Redmi 5 First Impressions”

The Redmi 5 possesses a 5.7-inch HD+ display with 720X1440 pixel ratio and 18:9 ratio aspect with 282ppi pixel density, 450-nit peak brightness, 72 per cent NTSC colour gamut, and an eye protection mode. Moving to the Redmi 5, the phone biggest highlight is the RAM and Storage.

Is the combination of hardware and software at this price enough to take on the likes of the Lenovo K8 Plus (Review), Samsung Galaxy J7, and Nokia 5? The Redmi Note 4 price in India has also been slashed by Rs 500.

Xiaomi launched its latest budget smartphone Redmi 5 in India just last week. The variant we spent time with was the middle one, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Another biggest highlight of the phone is the face unlocking feature.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is made out of metal, and during our first impressions, the device felt sturdy and well built. The resolution of this screen is 1440 X 720P, which is somewhat uncommon.

Such is the trend of 18:9 displays in the market all of Xiaomi's recent launches, except for the entry-level Redmi 5A, feature these elongated panels.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is a dual-SIM device, and it supports 4G LTE with VoLTE. Usually, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is sold out in seconds. Models in the Redmi series haven't been known to sport the best rear cameras, and the Redmi 5 is no exception. The Redmi 5 features a 12MP rear-facing camera 1.25-micron pixels, f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, HDR and LED Flash and a 5MP front snapper with a soft-light LED flash. This cashback amount will be credited to users in the form of 44 cashback vouchers worth Rs 50 each on the MyJio app upon performing recharge on the Xiaomi Redmi 5. The most interesting thing about the phone is that it comes with 5.7-inches of screen space with a body that is smaller than the iPhone 8 plus which sports a 5.5-inches display. Although the version of Android on which this MIUI is based is Android 7.

The device will be available through the flash sales to be organised weekly starting from March 20 on Amazon.in and Xiaomi's official website Mi.com. At 12 noon is when the first sale will happen, and this will be a flash sale - it means fastest fingers get.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 smartphone is launched in India in three different variants and the price of all variants are different.

The Redmi 5 features a 3,300mAh battery, which some might find disappointing considering the Redmi 4 had a 4,100mAh battery. The Redmi 5 comes in Black, Gold, Rose Gold and Lake Blue colors. The Redmi 5 weighs 157g, and the weight is distributed evenly.
