Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018Is it better at anything that Redmi Note 3? More memory and bigger screen. Better camera and better overall performance.
Nice specs.. looks like the usual good overall quality from Xiaomi. But those bezels are so ugly.
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2018The best $220 phone with ANTUTU score ~"113000" so far. Great job Xiaomi.. Even samsung,... moreNot really, old Mi Max Prime archives similar score & on the outgoing it whose only a tad pricier but that whose a year ago. Tho RN5 Pro is a better buy now.

It works very good with Neutron, old Power Amp beta whose also capable of using it's full capacity but I didn't like results either.
Surprised to see the audio quality section missing in the review. Mi has been disabling the hifi audio capabilities of the Snapdragon chips (Qualcomm Aqstic Audio) for some unknown reason. These chips support 24bit/192khz audio but is being disabled by Xiaomi.
Coming to the review there is no mention of the audio quality which is otherwise an essential part of GSMArena reviews. Any particular reason??
bakayaro, 20 Feb 2018Seem like its a cross breed among galaxy s8 iphone x and lg g6Illegitimate son of galaxy s8 & iphone X, and half-brother of G6 😀
I dont really care about the phone using micro usb as opposed to type C, its a minor inconvenience in a smashing phone.
The SOC itself makes it worth the price. I dont see any other phone in the price range with a comparable SOC, apart from older flagships from 2016-17.
* back camera superb, depth analyser give edge to edge clarity , (better than mi A1, honor 7x, only little bit problems in low light photos)
*there is no competitor available now in Front camera features in this price range ,really valuable
* 2.5D curved Corning® Gorilla® Glass FHD+ 18:9 display looks greate , curved edges pretty good. buy black color (but not exactly bezzel less compared to other phones and not mention the version of gorilla glass used , phone size also big compared to 5.9 inch mobiles)
*sd636 new and faster processor, supports heavy gaming, no lag( LPDDR4X ram), heat effect also less
* no fast charging support ( take 2.30 hrs to charge)
* video recording is the best part it supports EIS, you can take videos without any shake effects (4k recording will available future not confirmed)
at this price range (14000) it is worth buying phone compared to competitors, never disappoint
miui5a, 21 Feb 2018so please don't buy...simpleWho would really pick type c over stuff like sd636/18:9 screen etc. The internet is really haha. Sony made this exact compromise with the xa2, no prize for guessing how that would sell compared to this.
And no gsm stop trying to push them to stock android. Stock android is fugly. You ask those people who don't bother going to websites like yours to choose and they would never choose stock android look! Just no! Stop trying to ruin things, all the websites have been pushing stock android for ages yet the average consumer never buys them. Google would do better doing focus groups with casual users instead of listening to online feedback.
Just look at iphone x gestures, google should have added that to 8.1 the instant they saw it, instead the manufacturers have to hack android and produce less than ideal compromises. At the least they should add support for a forward button so it's easier for manufacturers to implement the gestures. Who knows how long it'll take them to add this now. Just something simple like iphone style background app control took from android 5-8.
Sun Sand, 20 Feb 2018This is 2018 and still no "USB C", sorry not interested..!!!so please don't buy...simple
"This phone still doesnt have..."
See the price and compare it to other similarly speced one.
]f you're still holding onto a Redmi Note 3 then this would be a good time to upgrade..... But i love my fast redmi note3 pro...sill works great 😚. Satisfy compare with lg and Samsung.
