"What we would personally like to see is an Android One version of this phone, but we wouldn't be holding our breath for that"
I was about to say that, that would literally make it a dream come true
Sun Sand, 20 Feb 2018This is 2018 and still no "USB C", sorry not interested..!!!and NFC :(
Voxter, 20 Feb 2018Well, they not only copied the camera's hump and external design plus copied from Apple the no... moreWell they don't charge 1000 USD for a phone, so there's that.. not having fast charger in sub 250 USD phone is much more tolerable than not having in 1000 bucks phone..
Well, they not only copied the camera's hump and external design plus copied from Apple the not include the fast charger in the box. Sadly they didn't copied the camera sensors... And the micro-usb is difficult to digest and accept being in 2018.
About Oreo... well, someday you'll get MIUI 10 about who knows what Android version... and probably after Android P is just released, no sooner that Q3 I guess. But if you don't care about that details, is a good phone for it's price.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro looks awesome, especially for it's price.
Good upgrades over the Redmi Note 4 too....(6GB RAM, Snapdragon 636, 6 inch 18:9 display, More fancy and promising dual camera, 20 MP front camera with flash, face unlock). The 3.5 mm jack stays alive too.
Probably the only downgrade is the small 100 mAh reduction. Maybe USB-C, IP68 & Oreo would have been better, but I think Xiaomi have another winner on their hands.
the only flaw it has is the usb c but damn xiaomi finaly has a sucessor for the redmi note 3
what about Oreo, face unlock, 4K video recording and other major software update? any official date there? in lunching event they mentioned only about face unlock but not Oreo and any other update.
