Bought this phone just a week back. Got to say it's a mini powerhouse!! The 720p screen coupled with SD450 provides an excellent experience. Gaming may even be smoother than the redmi note 5. A very good purchase.
Bought it. Buzzing noise from the earpiece while placing a regular call. Maybe just bad luck. Otherwise, the phone is great! Love it.
Its two months now after i bought this phone. Im in indonesia and i have the official indonesian 3/32gb version. Its great phone for price, if you dont mind the 5mp selfie camera. The back camera is not very sosmed type for me, but i dont mind that. Everything runs smooth. It can capture signal better then my wife samsung galaxy a5 using the same operator. Im actually considering switching this phone to 2017 samsung galaxy j5 pro for better camera result. Or the mia1 or the g5s plus. Tough decission.
Specifications for the price is undoubtedly good but the build quality is not . I am a person who takes real good care of my smartphones and i usually travel a lot in bikes. This phone easily bends in pocket. Well i guess that's a problem with the whole redmi series as they cut down cost on the build quality. Previously i had Redmi Note 4x and Redmi 3 both of them had the same problem . On the other hand nothing happens to my S8 or S7 edge or other Samsung J or A series phones that i have travelled with . Many people say the chasis of Redmi 5 is made of plastic so why will it bend ? I thought the same but it does . If anyone knows the answer, please to mention it here .
Thus it has an average build quality with good specifications.
I can't connect to PC in transfer files mode while it connect to transfer photos mode .. . any help???
Mine was bought yesterday at 6500PHP/8258Rupee/$122 color black 16gb+2gb. Looks premium, size not too big nor too small. Ideal weight and dimensions for me im just 5'5" asian. I prefer a minimalist approach like a stock android OS but im surprised with miui features. Makes sense in many ways. I appreciate the 720p + sd450 combo to make up for the downgraded 3300mah battery(from 4100mah redmi 4). Response and battery drain is good. Games are good too but dont expect hi quality graphics in a 720, anyway im happy with its fps and doesnt warm my hands. I dont do much camera, my sample shots are okayish. Overall its a massive upgrade from my more-than-a-decade Nokia basic phone. A surprise advanced bday gift from my parents. Thank u mom n dad:)
This smartph is awsome..Brilliant, nice and ....goes like a bullet.....i think.
Nice very nice work from Xiaomi....
Bought it a week ago and I am loving this experience with this phone. I very recommend.
AlexBROWN, 16 May 2018Don't buy this crap.Its bends automatically.Worst build quality How does it bend when the chassis is made of plastic? Only the back cap is metal - aluminium I presume ...
Im using redmi 5 about 2 month. Latest miui update ruined whole experience about this phone. wifi icon always missing, game force close so often, always failed to update game from play store, mi launcher now less smooth than before. It's third time I'm using xiaomi after mi 4i & mi A1. All great value for money ruined by poor software
What about rear camera quality? Is better than redmi 4x and redmi note 4x cameras?
Front cam is very very bad! That's the only con i have so far. Im really bothered by it.
Good phone...good camera...good for gaming... long battery life . .. I am satisfied this phone ...it works perfectly and no problem... =)
