amanisb, 22 Aug 2020What about the battery life ? same or different ?It's enough for a day of your phone is 100% from morning
Thank you all who gave a way out of the laggy nightmare, by suggesting pixel experience. I would like to ask someone who is using PE on this phone to post Benchmark test scores so that many others can be sure of the performance upgrades with PE.
Thank in advance.

Without any protection on front Or Back. It falls on the floor multiple times a day everyday. Doesn't have a scratch, doesn't bend as well. I've been trying to bend it for the last couple of weeks and it has no flex at all. Perfect bang for buck phone for me.
Yea, Xiaomi Redmi 5 breaks easily. That's the downside of the phone. I had to fall down twice to shatter it's screen completely, and not even the "case" could prevent it from breaking this much.
I don't recommend it for clumsy people like I am.

I have been using it for almost two years. The screen is often not responsive and only gets active when screen is pwered off and on again. This happens to two other friends of mine. So this is not unique.
According to forum info only screen replacement solves the problem.
Problems began after the update to MIUI 10. I believe, they made the camera worse artificially. Since then, no further update made it better.
FYI, the updates are pushed and irreversible.
the only problem is the internal storage :(, this phone have been with me since 2018, and going to upgrade to Note 9 Pro
Got mine since 2017. The only problem I have is the small storage (16GB).
Call quality is standard.
(Depends on your carrier. I use Softbank.)
Battery life isn't that great anymore on MIUI so I installed pixel experience rom for better performance and battery life.
The camera isn't that good when recording a video but photos are great considering it's a 2017 budget device it can still take great photos with the help of GCam.
It's smooth on regular use like sms,calls,video streaming and web browsing. But don't expect too much in gaming especially 3D games.
I'm switching to Mi 9T pro since I earned enough money.
But if you're planning to get this device. I highly suggest getting the 64GB variant and install a rom called pixel experience to get the best out of your device.
