Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 released in February this year. It is the latest in its series and the predecessor of the explosively successful Note 4. A high-performance smartphone, it offers someof the best features in the market at an affordable price. Here’s what you need to know before you upgrade.
Knight in shining steel and Gorilla Glass:
The phone has a solid metal outer casing and is available in 5 colour variants. At just 180 g, the device is light, portable, and sleek. It comes with a fingerprint scanner for maximum security with easy access. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass.
More space for what matters:
Bezels are the spaces above and below the touch area of the smartphone. The Note 5 has extremely narrow bezels when compared to its predecessors. This allows for a large 5.99-inch screen with a pixel density of 403 pixels per inch, leading to a much sharper display.
Redmi Note 5 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Octa-core processor that clocks at 2GHz,making it ideal for multi-taskers and allowing a smooth gaming experience with minimal device heating, even with games like PUBG, Asphalt, and GTA. This is backed by 4 GB RAM and an Android v7.1.2 operating system. Xiaomi also promises that an Android v8.1 update is on the horizon.
Carry your world in your pocket:
The Redmi Note 5 has a full-HD 1080x2160px display, turning video-viewing into a luxurious experience. The 64 GB internal memory lets the user carry and watch a large number of movies, shows and videos on the go! This is further expandable up to 128 GB with a MicroSD card.
The Note 5’s built-in 4000 mAh battery is compatible with Quick Charge 3.0, making life easier with faster, cooler and far more efficient charging. Xiaomi promises 17 days of standby time and up to 9 hours of gaming time as well.
The device’s 12MP rear camera captures high detail and works well even in low lighting. The HDR feature enhances the dynamic range of captured images and recovers details from highlights and shadows. The 5MP front camera is accompanied by a front-facing Soft-LED flash that provides the
perfect illumination for selfies in any light. Videos are recorded in high resolution at 30 frames per second, with 4K, 1080p, and 720p options.
