I had redmi note 3 snapdragon edition, loved it. Yeah speaker wasnt great so as the camera. But i love it due to the battery life, so smooth and snappy, and the price. Its my daily driver until my htc u11. Heck i was ready to buy iphone7plus, but didnt coz its not as smooth or smoother than my rn3 so i ended up with u11. I like this r5plus, especially the battery. I believe the miui 9 would be awesome as well, but i need band 28 as primary requirement. Even mi a1didnt have band 28. I dont understand why most Chinese fons, especially budget ones, dont offer band 28?
The phone goods really good...Too bad it is a MI phone. From my experience after using 2 MI phones + 2 from my family. All kaput within after the warranty period. Coincident? I don't think so..... MI phone substandard product & terrible customer Services. Woud definitely not recommend to anyone.
Typical low-quality Xiaomi crap. How coul sound through headphone jack be so useless? Just read that section and did not need to read anything more.
Another subpar camera for a budget model..... C'mon Xiaomi. Release better camera phones. Even the flagships cameras are bad.
I love the design but for sure we would love this phone much if it coincides with our preferences. Even if its China phone, as long as it kicks b***s against other phones, then I'm in for a grab.
That is why i shifted to another brand. And i am very satisfied more than I expected. I've also waited for the RN5 but no to avail. We'll for its price it is good!
Anonymous, 23 Jan 2018Must say Xiaomi designs are ugly and so is their Android skinIf brands like xiaomi makes an unique signature design, no doubt they will thrive.
Same thing with the other chinese brands (except huawei)
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!

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.
