I recommend this phone. I've been using it for about a week now and I've only experienced very minor lags. I've done an AnTuTu benchmark test, GeekBench test, battery test, among others. It's areally good phone for a really good price.
i hope redmi will move on to 6000 mAh battery for all of its next product. we deserve a *solid* 2 day or more battery life
This is good phone, for 150€ the best.. If you need better camera, for my opinion, go and buy profesional photoaparat.. Cannon, Nikon.. why take photos with phone.. if you need better selfie.. go give 5000$ for samsung and iphone.. :) but if you need just phone, for message, calls and internet.. this is one of the best budget..
I like the single grill speaker at the bottom , the back finishing , too bad there's no led
I am currently using Xiaomi Redmi 8, but I discover that the phone doesn't have call recorder functions.
That's not a good one.
azureen1, 31 Jan 2020Does the phone have the option to record calls?Hey brother, no they changed their mi dialer to google dialer and thats really frustrating! no more auto call recording..
But if you contact them or write feedback to them about this issue.. they may help us by bringing back that mi dialer or auto call recording.. so please do this and lets hope for the best ...
if more users post this issue, they will soon fix it...
Well recently bought this device just a weak ago, now let me post some honest review...
First of all its back main camera is not as expected even my previous device (Redmi 4x) has much better sharpening and low light focus than this rubbish focus along with overall picture quality and just forget about night quality even the camera lags while taking any photo indoor or at night..... front camera is not bad though, seems fine as to the price...
Now lets talk about the processor,cpu (sd 439)
Games under 100mb works fine lol but when you play a little bit high graphics game on high settings the phone stutters and keep stuttering so for high end games it aint the right choice..!
But if you use facebook,whatsapp,youtube,insta and even 20+ apps altogether it works fine no lag or any kind of mobile sttuter may be thats because of 4gb ram....
Now battery ofcourse 5000mah,its too good, a little bit heavy but fine!
It comes with front gorilla glass 5 so really solid screen...
Type-C hmmm +1 !!
So if you dont wanna play games, need a decent camera+long battery life,type-c,solid screen
I think its the best in budget..... But remember camera is not that good... Focus is garbage :/
And yeah Redmi has replaced mi dialer with google dialer so auto call recording is no more and thats really frustrating...
Realme 5 looks good overall except type-c but thats really not a big issue! Looking forward to realme now :(

Been on flagship phones for as long as there has been smartphones, more or less, but got this (4/64GB version at 25% off for demo unit)as a stopgap phone and must say I'm pleasantly surprised about how decent a phone in this price range is nowadays.

One of the saddest thing is that it doesn't come with a font change. Only a change of font size. Wonder how can I change the font.
I biught this phone last week. Its working smoothly. The screen resolution is outstanding. For the price its a very good option.
