Is Redmi Note 5 worth the buy?
Absolutely yes! We reviewed the Redmi Note 5 for close to a month and it is worth every penny. Xiaomi device is one of the most cost-effective handsets in the market. It ticks most of the boxes be it the build quality, camera, long-lasting battery, display and more.
The Redmi Note 5 sports a 5.9-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) FullView screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, Android Nougat-based MIUI 9.5 OS, hybrid SIM slots, 3.5mm audio jack, single 12MP primary camera, a 5MP front snapper and a 4,000mAh battery, which is more than enough to run for one-and-half day under mixed usage.
In a related development, Xiaomi is tipped to launch Redmi Y2 in India early next month on June 7. It is said to be a rebranded Redmi S2, which is already available in China. Its USP is the front camera.
The device comes with a feature-rich 16MP front camera with Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered Smart Beauty editing tools, which allows owners to adjust facial tones or erase scars so that the picture is visually appealing to be posted on social media platforms. This feature is certain to find traction among social media-savvy youths.
On the rear side, it features an impressive dual-camera 12MP+5MP with LED flash and full HD video recording capability. With two sensors, the device will allow users to adjust the focus on the foreground and the backgrounds to get Bokeh blur effect.
