Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 overview

  • 1Description

The Redmi Note 5 Dual-SIM 64GB Smartphone from Xiaomi Yi features a triple-camera setup with dual 12MP and 5MP rear cameras and one 13MP front-facing camera. They are designed to capture high resolution photos, and with wide-angle lenses on either side, you can capture more of the world around you in each photo. Both sides of the Note 5 have built-in flashes too, helping you illuminate the scene to capture the best possible photo.

The Redmi Note 5 can also capture great looking video, with Full HD 1080p video capture capabilities from the rear cameras, and HD 720p from the selfie side. When it comes to playing videos, games, or any other app, you get to do it on a large and bright display. The Redmi Note 5 packs a large 6" ultra-bright display with a 2160 x 1080 resolution and 1000:1 contrast ratio. There are even Night and Reading modes to help optimize your viewing experience.

Running the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system, this phone is powered by a 2.2/1.9 GHz Octa-Core processor (4 x 2.2 GHz & 4 x 1.9 GHz) and 4GB of RAM. You can store your apps, hi-res selfies, 1080p videos and more on the 64GB of built-in storage, which is expandable up to 128GB with an (optional) microSD card. Please note that an optional microSD card must use one of the two SIM slots in the phone. This phone is unlocked and compatible with GSM/4G LTE networks. If you travel a lot or have a separate work number, you can take advantage of the Dual SIM slots to access both accounts.

Android 8.1 Oreo + MIUI 9.0
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your home screen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to millions of apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 8.1 Oreo adds major productivity and security capabilities to the operating system. They've introduced Google Play Protect, which scans apps on your phone to detect harmful behavior. With the touch of the Home button, continue to work in apps while watching active videos in Picture-in-Picture mode. Other features include, faster boot speed, automatically turning on Wi-Fi when near saved networks, limiting background activity for little used apps, notification snoozing, smart text selection, and more.

MIUI 9.0 is an OS developed by Huawei which works with the Android OS to alter the look, feel, and function of the standard Android OS. MIUI 9.0 is designed to add additional functionality and a more pleasing appearance for a better overall experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone, very active userbase Bought this phone to work on Freedom Mobile in Canada, works perfectly. My last two phones were both ZTE, first an Axon Pro (4G/64G), and a Blade V8 Pro. This phone is taller, but narrower, and very slim compared to those, it actually feels smaller (not a bad thing) despite having a 6" screen. Box came with a clear phone sleeve/case, mini usb cable and small charger. It charges at "normal" rates. But used the same cable with my Blade V8's old Quickcharge 3.0 wall unit and it does fast charge, just not out of the box. If you want to fast charge get a Qualcomm Quickcharge 3 compatible charger. Screen is good for the price, and Xiaomi is very good about updating. A week after I received it, I got an update to MIUI 9 to it's last version for this model, and a month and a bit later, I've gotten the update to MIUI 10. MIUI has taken a *little* bit of adjustment, as the ZTE phones are almost stock Android. This skin is definitely NOT stock Android. But I'm warming to it. Apparently if one was an iOS user before, the skin will feel more familiar, but I've never owned and Apple product. There is no app drawer in MIUI. However it's easy to find new UI's on the forum and try them out. Performance-wise, I'm a fairly heavy gamer, and games that would make my old Axon Pro stutter a bit run smooth as silk on here. Battery life is excellent. I would estimate that I've only gone below 20% after about 6-7 hours straight of heavy gaming. An average day after 16 hours with 2-3 hours of gaming and otherwise medium usage, I would guess I'm going to bed with 35-40% charge remaining. Phonecalls are loud and clear, zero issues, and the camera works fine. I haven't really used it much for the camera, but what photos I've taken seem good. The selfie cam automatically uses an adjustable "beauty mode" to remove things like acne, wrinkles, etc. It works nicely. It can be taken out of beauty mode. Negatives: There is some bloatware on the phone (when isn't there?) that's annoying because you can't remove it, but otherwise stays out of the way. Also, I assume that because the company offers the ability to basically root the phone ON the phone itself, I have had one issue where one of the games I was playing wouldn't let me play because it detected "illegal software". After contacting the game company the issue was resolved within 36 hours. (I assume I'm not the ONLY person on the planet to get the warning using this phone) Sadly it doesn't use a reversible USB-C cable, which is kind of a silly choice, how much more would that cost? Back to the positives, Xiaomi and its userbase are extremely involved and active. They have a very healthy forum where different UI's, themes, wallpapers, and tons of other ideas are offered. Contests to win phones, or other Xiaomi gear are offered. Rooting is actually not discouraged by Xiaomi, and they offer beta versions of MIUI that are user downloadable (a Global and a Chinese version of each) that have more advanced capabilities, and they offer instructions on the forum on how download and install (and backup your phone beforehand) all of that. This is a power-user-on-a-budget dream phone. I would recommend this phone to anyone looking to save money, have a solid phone that will be up to date for quite some time, but still have the ability to play with and upgrade the software at will.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Global version Why does your description says its a Latin America version and you send out one that's a global version. Is there a difference between the two versions for U.S. wireless coverage?
