Redmi Note 5 Pro Pros & Cons

  • Retaining a lot of the design and display features of the Redmi Note 5, Note 5 Pro may not be significant enough to draw eyeballs. Only the cheeky Apple-based rear camera design may raise some eyebrows. The flagship feature lies in the power-packed performance that Note 5 Pro offers, especially after upgrading from the older chipset.
  • Plus, it comes with a whopping 20MP front camera – a modification that helps the set make a dashing entry back into the competing market with other flagship models.
  • Powered by Snapdragon 636, Redmi Note 5 Pro promises to offer an improved and dependable fast processing speed like never before. Increased camera speed, better gameplay and quick access to apps – this hardy performer will not let you down.
  • Pair that with the brilliant battery life of Xiaomi, and you get a power-saving beast performer in your hands.
  • While the company has retained the same rear cameras from Note 5, the 20MP selfie camera is a brilliant innovation. Using the Depth Mode for AI edge detection and a diffused white selfie light for low-light selfies, the front camera captures intricate details and produces crisp images that will make you look great.
  • The downside of Note 5 Pro is the software. Android Nougat is outdated compared to the current flagship products in the market and makes the set a difficult flagship model to recommend. Due to this lack of upgrade, it cannot be termed as the perfect budget phone.

Redmi Note 5 Pro Design

There’s no difference between Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. They are both 5.99-inch, have metallic bodies, rear fingerprint displays, and a protruding rear camera set. It has tried to go for an Apple iPhone twist with the vertical camera set design. The flagship 18:9 display has been retained making it narrower and taller. Being a bit on the heavier side gives it the much-required sturdiness.

Redmi Note 5 Pro Display

The display has remained mostly unchanged, compared to Note 5. The colours are sharp and have a warm tone that might enter into camera images as well. It has a better colour depth than Mi A1. It gives enough legibility in direct sunlight to read through texts, and the touch response is good. The lack of side bezels provides more screen space to work with.

Redmi Note 5 Pro Processor

Redmi Note 5 Pro was released with the newer Snapdragon 636 chipset, running all eight Kryo cores. You can easily notice the increased speed of the device. The camera apps open faster than Redmi Note 5 and shooting low-light images works like a breeze. On benchmarks, it clocks up numbers closer to the Snapdragon 650 and provides a WHOPPING 30% increase in performance. That’s a lot in today’s standard!

Redmi Note 5 Pro Camera

The camera design of the Redmi Note 5 Pro will attract attention with its use of Apple’s design. Quality-wise, while it may not reach Apple’s standard, it has improved from the previous models. Note 5 Pro comes with a dual-camera set, sporting 12MP+5MP RGB sensor fitted cameras. It’s better than Redmi Note 4 and performs like the camera of Mi A1. Infusing warm colours on display, the Redmi Note 5 produces reasonable detail in images. It produces better colours in low light than Mi A1, which is an advancement for Xiaomi. This camera is faster and better at taking shots than Note 5 and makes for a dependable upgrade. However, Moto G5 Plus has a better camera in the same range. But Xiaomi took a huge leap forward with the whopping 20MP front camera. It takes detailed images in daylight and comes with a selfie light for low-light selfies. Depth Mode uses Xiaomi’s own AI learning algorithm for reasonably good edge detection. However, HDR is not very effective. Beautification mode can be turned on, and you can manually choose the facial features you want to highlight. It’s not as great as Oppo’s selfie-captures, but it’s not too shabby either.

Redmi Note 5 Pro Battery

You can rely on Xiaomi when it comes to battery life, and the company has not let the fans down this time as well. The powerful 4,000 mAh battery is a worthy companion to the new chipset, and keep chugging on without feeling any bit of strain after the upgrade. It can easily last for a day and more with moderate to heavy use. While the charger does not come with quick charging, the phone supports it. So, if you already have a Qualcomm Quick Charge power adapter, you can attach it to the phone for charging. A single charge can last for 16 hours and 36 minutes of continuous video play.

Redmi Note 5 Pro First Impressions

Redmi Note 5 Pro could be called the actual upgrade over Note 4. It comes with a new processor that accelerates camera speed and produces better image processing. The addition of a 20MP front camera is a killer move by Xiaomi. Though there is hardly any noticeable changes in design or display, for the improved performance, Note 5 Pro is a great upgrade to go for. However, it would have been a budget phone if Xiaomi had provided Android Oreo, like most of the competing flagship models.
