xiaomi redmi 5 review | xiaomi mi5 – best phone in budget
Xiaomi, with the dispatch of Redmi 5, has struck the last nail to command cell phones valued anyplace between Rs 6000 to Rs 16,000. At the point when the Redmi 5A was propelled, it assumed control over the passage level section, inside a couple of months it was taken after by Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro knocking out telephones valued between 10-15K.
We were not done talking about the Redmi Note 5, and Xiaomi delivered the Redmi 5 to replace the Redmi 4 in the 7-10K price segment. It is company’s solution for users looking for a compact yet balanced handset that also offers the logical value proposition.
My experience with Redmi was more or less like the Redmi phones I have used prior to this. The major difference here was of the overall size and battery. I had written about my three days experience with the Redmi 5 earlier, and most of the things I mentioned there remain.
Xiaomi has updated the Redmi 5 with some on-trend elements like 18:9 display and minimal bezels. But the question I asked before writing the review was mostly about the new upgrades on the phone. Do these feature make the experience better? Is it a phone I wanted to see after the Redmi 4? And most importantly, is this a phone worth recommending because it’s actually good, or just because there is a lack of competition.
