Please do a meizu m6s review, it’s a one worthy opponent for this phone.
I still don't this that this is the true RN4 sucessor, or should I say I am hopeful that this isn't the RN4 successor. I still feel Xiaomi won't bring this as RN5. With internet penetration increased substantially, even an average Joe will know that this is a bad phone (when looking at it as a RN4 successor), same was not the case last year when RN4 was downgraded to 625, though it still had a no. of more pros as compared to RN3, than this one.
Tl,dr it would be stupid of Xiaomi to bring this as the RN5 in India
"...Xiaomi wanted a fresh start."
"The fifth generation is trying to shake things up..."
"The 5 Plus keeps the Snapdragon 625 chip and 4,000mAh battery of the Redmi Note 4. The old 5MP selfie camera stays too..."
Yeah, these three sentences kinda don't fit together, do they? Truly, how can anyone interpret "keeping the internals of Gen4 (which themselves were mostly a downgrade from Gen3) and following the 18:9 outside appearance everyone else is doing" as innovation? At least they didn't "upgrade" to an SD617 with 2GB RAM and a 3.000mAh battery.
I agree with Fulljack's recommendation: might as well just buy an A1 (or a plain Note 4, if you can handle some slight tinkering, it has excellent custom roms support).
AnonD-333475, 23 Jan 2018better screen and battery than the A1, it's just missing stock android . Lineage OS rom is already in development as official TWRP is released early for this phone. You can flash Lineage OS or any other stock rom after the warranty expires! It's sure a better phone!

Anonymous, 23 Jan 20186" 18:9 is similar to 5.5" 16:9 .
With 4000mAh it scores 104h.
XA1+ scores 102h with 3430... moreWell you forgot that they costed almost twice at launch
Besides loger screen is equal to more pixels and larger area to light up. Well you forgot maths I guess
onlyREAL, 23 Jan 2018this or Mi A1??? i want a future proof phone, with a good camera and audio...Mi A1 of course. Confirmed to get Android P, and after the kernel source are released, the developers community shall thrive.
Still no ac wifi....
Is it more expensive to enable AC wifi?
To be honest ,this is the only reason for me not to buy it...

SD625 in this and No Redmi Note? Xiaomi just shot itself in the foot.

The phone captures 2160p videos as mentioned in the introduction, in all video descriptions, video compare tool, and the review's text, of course. The only place it was missing was in our database and it's fixed now.
Battery Nearly 14 Hours For Web N Video... Not Bad.... U Can Go For It Only If U Have No Problem With The Size 158 Bigger Which I Hate It :P
I am very confused. Is this device capable of shooting 4k video or not? In the specs and in the introduction it says 1080p, in the videos sub section of the camera section it says it can shoot 2160p but the youtube video sample thumbnail right under it says 1080p, however if u play it u can select the 2160p quality. So please either update the specs and the intro or say its limited to 1080p.
Is this your idea for the successor of Redmi Note 4?
You have certainly convinced me to buy....Redmi Note 4....!!!
Something went terribly wrong with this device (or just the unit tested) in Audio performance section. Most devices perform well with amplifier than with headphone.. But this amplifier readings are way worse than acceptable..
P.S: This is has been the farthest worst score i seen, since watching these graphs in GSMAreana for so long.
