Looking good it will be best phone forgames since it has fastest gpu (720p) I hope price for euro stay at 160 euro

I'm using a Redmi 4x and I'm utterly disappointed with the dimensions of this Redmi 5. The screen-to-body ratio is too low for a so-called "bezel-less" phone. And it should've been as compact as LG Q6 at least.
Obviously we'll have to learn how to live with those huge devices or to stick to Redmi 5a. Anyway nothing can be done. Xiaomi knows better what I need for my best user experience. And may be they have to sell them with combat trousers with huge pockets instead of protection cases. I wanted to change my 2 years old mi4c, but it seems it was my last Xiaomi device. LG Q6 offers similar specs in acceptable package. Only the price is a little bit higher, but maybe people with brain in their heads deserve some reward for their attention to all kind ot tastes.
The Redmi 5 Plus base variant (3+32) is the best VFM. 6" FHD+ screen with Sd 625 on board. But I am disappointed with the size of these.
why everything that is 2:1 screen ratio is bigger than 5". not even single mainstream manufacturer considered making a < 5" 2:1 phone slim-bezel or bezel-less phone
Xiaomi has gone crazy. 5.7" and 6" screen in a Redmi phone?! What will be Redmi Note 5 then? 6.44"? Oh yeah there's Mi Max too. Will it come with 7" screen then?

Put 18:9 and a 5 inch phone side by side and you will not notice the difference if anything, 5.7' inch display will look like a 5.2' inch display. Awesome technology

Me too!!!!! And without the capacitive buttons. If you don't provide backlight to them you better remove them!
