20MP front camera with flash
oh god what else you guys want for 14k ????
i bet other OEMs who gonna use SD636 will definitely price it above 24k
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2018Specs are good but Xiaomi should I have improved on more essential areas. There is no mention ... moreThey mentioned Gorilla Glass (didn't mention the version).
And yes they should have gone with type-c, but this is a con which I guess 99% of the potential consumers will be happy to live with (including me)
People just stop ranting about what it doesn't have!
Can't you see they giving all this at 14k!!
Maybe that is why people from west consider us Indians stupid. Guys this is a 14k phone, not 50k!
And at 14k this the best we can get, and that too by a LONG LOOOOOONG WAY!
RN5 Pro simply, plainly crushes the competetion with EASE.
Yes Xiaomi continued it's stupid marketing by comparing it with the Pixel, S8, OP5T etc, but if we ignore their marketing department, this for sure gonna repeat in sales what RN4 did last year, or even surpass it
Later you will see Indian people in India will start to moan the Redmi note 5 pro and the original. Then in Cee4etech, ash and Sundar would be saying the "worst" phone design and spec in 2018.
which is faster and best in all these 3 phones ? mi a1 , note and note 5 pro . bcoz I want to buy a phone and I want the best and there is huge confusion among these.
marius, 14 Feb 2018why ???? - no wifi charge - no water resistant -too big Hope They should make a mid ph... moreKeep dreaming about that since "Wifi charging" is not going to happen any time in the future.
Specs are good but Xiaomi should I have improved on more essential areas. There is no mention of any screen protection. The storage is still eMMC 5.0 (could have used 5.1 or ufs 2.0 atleast in RM5 pro). There is no point of fast chipset if storage is slow.
Also why microusb port! Mi Max 2 and Mi A1 have usb type-c. They have same price as RM5 pro in many regions.
I like xiaomi, their phones are cheap but powerful.
No OEM's can make a acceptable phones or affordable phones better than xiaomi. Or perhaps LeEco could, anyway where are they? Any news from LeEco?
Good deal for mid range.
Well, if it android one I bet it will be the best seller in 2018. Miui is good, but I prefer pure Android or close to it. And I hope xiaomi will release kernel source immediately after they launch their phones. Respect the GPL.
Dual back camera but aperture is f/2.2 hahaha lol.
This exactly how tricky chinese company lured ignorant buyer, with gimmick, novelty and nowadays trend of major flagship like samsung or apple.
As for geek, I take single shooter 12MP f/1.7 anyday!
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2018My phone is running on latest MIUI 9, Yes MIUI is a heavy UI. This one have 6gb of ram. I dont think miui 9 will slow this beast down for quite some time
It supports Quick Charge 2.0. Thats still enough as We are getting overall package at this price point. MI A1 got Oreo updates so it will surely come for Note 5 pro in coming weeks. Cheers!!
No doubt the stupid flash sale model will be used again. The fools dont realize they are actually suppressing sales because of the flash sale strategy. If its an inventory capacity issue, i could understand. But its not apparently, its a marketing decision.
I like the Pro version, although the shitty camera has dampened my enthusiasm a bit. Looking forward to taking the 636 through Trepn profiler to see if the cores are 8 A55 derived ( Kryo 260 cores as called by QC) or 4 A73 derived+ 4 A55 derived cores (again called Kryo 260 confusingly enough). I believe it is an octa A55 based chipset so similar to 630.
If I can get my hands on one without needing to go thru the flash sale...
majju, 14 Feb 2018Cons: -IP68 -USB Type-C -Fast Battery chargingAt that price point you're expecting a phone with ip68 rating? cmon dude! you're either drunk or just want to troll!!
XIAOMI REDMI NOTE 5 PRO only lack two thing is Android Oreo 8.0/8.1 which has Project Treble to have fast updates in short time.Another thing is USB Type C over that stupid gimmick 20 megapixel front camera with led flash but snapdragon 636 is a huge upgrade over snapdragon 630 n 625 since sd630 is a rebranded 626 with same clock speed only few improvement in connectivity like Bluetooth 5.0 & Upload & Download speed.Still will go for Moto X4 with Oreo over this thing if want project treble with it n f1.8 aperture dual camera but note 5 pro has sd636 which is very fast,lastest n efficient midrange chip till up to this day.Snapdragon 640 will going to beat SD 636 when next year release in smartphone may be an SD 646 version too.SD 660/670 are pretty expensive n low in demand to be set up in midrange by android OEM since they are semi flagship chip for upper midrange phone.
Without fast charge and usb-type C is not for me. We at home just had problems with several micro-usb connectors and one lost in normal use along the time. And the problems almost always recur in the limit of the guarantee or later for worse. No thanks. Add that if one day they receive global bands like B20, etc it will take several months like with the Note 4.
