Packaging – Specifications

The packaging of the Redmi 5 Plus is similar lớn the likes of the mày Max 2 and Mi A1 models we reviewed this year.

It is pretty elegant both on the inside và outside. Within you will find the smartphone itself, a wall charger (quick charging is supported), a USB charging cable, the SIM eject tool và basic documentation. No earpieces are included, which is a shame because xiaomi mi designs some very interesting ones. At least they are cheap and you will be able khổng lồ buy the ones you like, if you require them that is.

In order khổng lồ be an affordable model, the Chinese giant chose same old internals combined with a completely re-designed exterior, & screen.

3 or 4GB of RAM accompanied by 32 or64GB of ROM respectively (there are two models), Dual SIM (Dual Standby, Hybrid with Micro SD) capability, a 12MP/5MP camera combo, a very precise fingerprint reader, an IR blaster, FM Radio , a power nguồn efficient Octa-core Snapdragon So
C & a new, ultra widescreen 1080p 5.99” IPS display compose a seemingly capable smartphone.

Networking wise, Dual Band Wi-Fi và BT4.2 connection protocols will ensure satisfaction from the majority of users.

The large 4000m
Ah battery will ensure great battery life and the relatively compact dimensions (for a 6incher) sweetens the deal.

Build quality – Layout

Build chất lượng is excellent and not only for the price. We get a full aluminum và robust toàn thân and a cool looking antenna at the back. Although the new ultra-wide screen holds its own in terms of aesthetics, the overall thiết kế is similar khổng lồ the previous cảnh báo 4 model, especially when the rear side is concerned.

Compared to lớn ultra-wide flagship device, lượt thích the Oneplus 5T/6, the main differences have to vì chưng with thickness (that at least leads to a bigger battery) và smaller bezels & chin at the bottom. We still get an impressive 77% screen to toàn thân ratio. The grip could be better, since the phone feels, & is, very slippery. A case is highly recommended.

The layout is good with no weird decisions needed khổng lồ be made.

At the back you will find the main camera (12 MP (f/2.2, 1.25 µm) with the two tone flash và phase detect tự động hóa focus system. The fingerprint reader in is the middle right below, và is easy lớn reach, even if you have relatively small fingers.

At the top you will find the headphones jack, the IR Blaster with the noise cancelling microphone while at the bottom you will see the micro-USB data/charging port, the talking microphone, & the speaker.

On the left side the Hybrid Dual SIM slot is the only thing you can find, while on the right side the volume rocker & the power nguồn on/off button are all there is lớn see.

On the front, the new, large 5.99” IPS display occupies the bigger part & at the đứng top you will find the 5MP selfie camera (alongside all of smartphone’s hidden sensors) while the bottom chin is now không tính phí of capacitive buttons.

Software – Performance

Although we are already in the Oreo (Android 8.0) era, the Redmi 5 Plus is still based in Nougat (7.1.2) version. It still gets security updates and bug fixes, while the Oreo update should be just around the corner.

Xiaomi again uses its own MIUI launcher. It is actually a modified custom ROM with many tweaks & features integrated. There is no application drawer, so each ứng dụng will take space from one of your launchers main pages. This is similar lớn the way ios works but this makes things more crowded, especially if you are used lớn have many widgets. Dual apps và dual spaces are two features that allow you to lớn install an application twice và have two different main screen layouts respectively. Amazing features that may come in handy in cases you use dual SIM thiết lập (for example, install a Viber tiện ích twice, one for each SIM phone number).

The lock screen is very functional with the expected notifications, time and shortcuts. Double tap to wake is supported for your convenience. Split screen is also supported & is a joy lớn use at such a big screen.

Xiaomi has added a new feature with gestures replacing the on screen buttons, just lượt thích in Apple’s Iphone X. The implementation is not that good và smooth.

Our unit arrived with MIUI 8 (Android 7.1) & immediately received the monthly security updates & latest MIUI 9 version (Android 7.1.2).

Performance should be no different from the rest of Snapdragon 625 So
C based solutions. Although the So
C is kinda old, it can still hold its own both in terms of perceived performance và battery life (especially the later). There will be some minor lags here và there while browsing the interface, but nothing that you wouldn’t normally expect from a mid-range model.

The internal ROM (we tested the 3GB RAM / 32GB ROM version) is very fast (200Mb read / 125Mb write) và should cause no delays while auto updating applications from Play Store.

The new display is eye-attracting both for its form size as for its performance. Brightness levels go beyond 480nits (450 promised) và the contrast ratio easily rivals the best of LCD solutions out there. It is probably as good as it gets for a non-Amoled display. Wide angle viewing is also very good since an IPS panel is used.

LTE (4G) performance is good but not in par with Sony XZ1’s performance that was nearly 3 times better when tested from the same position with the same SIM card and carrier.

GPS performance was solid (especially with the recent updates) & satellite locking was fast.

Speaker & microphone performance is very good và certainly above average. A dual speaker solution would boost the device’s multimedia experience (especially combined with the tall screen)

Fingerprint reader is one of the best around. Extremely accurate và fast. It is the same implementation found on mày Max 2 and Mi A1. All you get from newer models is slightly faster response/speed. Accuracy is top notch.

Camera – Battery Life

The camera performance is just above average, which normally means that you get good day light photos, và just acceptable low light ones.

Day light photos have very good detail and color rendition with low noise. Dynamic range is good, even without the use of HDR mode. HDR mode will vì chưng a good job in shadow detail though.

Low light performance is a totally different case since you will get either a slightly darker image or washed out one. Using manual settings can give you better results but that will most likely make you chiến bại the “moment”, unless of course you are shooting static objects/scenery. The dual LED flash is capable & will save your photos in small areas or close-ups.

The layout of the camera application is practical and all options are just a click or a swipe away. There is a plethora of available modes like panorama, beautify, straighten, timer among others for you to lớn use per your request.

Selfie cam is good, as expected with enough detail & good contrast. Certainly better than the one used in my Samsung S7 Edge (the software algorithm destroys any facial details) but noticeably worse than Sony XZ1 ‘s.

Xiaomi showed off the first pictures of its new Redmi 5 & Redmi 5 Plus earlier this week, và now the smartphones have been revealed in full. Redmi is Xiaomi's brand that attempts to lớn deliver solid products at extremely low prices; the new devices follow the Redmi 4 & Redmi cảnh báo 4, which became the two most popular phones in India this year.


As was apparent from the pictures, the Redmi 5 & 5 Plus bring a very 2017-style 18:9 design to the Redmi line, with rounded corners và thin bezels on the top & bottom of the screen. Around the back there's a fingerprint sensor và a single camera, and the phone's body is made from aluminium. It comes in blue, pink, gold, and black.
