I am in love with this phone. Really superb. Amazing phone. I chose this mobile because of my budget constraints. I thought this mobile maybe an average one with low specs because of the cheap price but I was wrong and Iam amazed after using it for 1month.
I chose the option of 'increased contrast' in display settings and, my God! the colours have high contrast that the colours sometimes seem like that of amoled especially while playing high end HD games. The blacks are deep. I wouldn't expect this kind of quality screen even at double the price. Really even at such a cheap price, the display is just amazing. PLUS the screen is so sharp and crisp, really I fell in love with the screen.
The processor is also very powerful. I played some high end graphics games on this phone and the gameplay is so fluid. Really a capable CPU and GPU. Beautiful performance. And the battery capacity is such a add to this already amazing phone.
The screen to body ratio of this phone is higher than that of Galaxy A8 Plus which costs 3 times of this phone and even the weight is low compared to Galaxy A8 Plus although Mi Note 5 features a bigger battery.
The speech to text feature of this phone works great with Indian accent. I have used many phones before but all of them at the most had only 60 to 70% accuracy in voice recognition but this phone is above 90% in voice recognition and I have forgotten to type after getting this phone. Amazing.
4G and volte is working great on this phone with my jio Sim and the cellular reception is just great.
The camera clicks decent images, and IR blaster is really cool and very useful. And all this I am getting at a price for which I cannot imagine to buy even a basic phone of Samsung.
Thanks to XIOMI for making such a great phone.
Having great time with this phone.
Ali, 29 Mar 2018Well viewing angles are nt poor..its very minor ...but the fact is ...its display is top notchColor shifting is indeed minimal, but it easily gets darker even on minimal angle.
But I agree, for the money quality is more than adequate.
I only wish they didn't mess the polarization that way.

Hi guys, my redmi 5 plus is one day of use. From first moment of using im hearing very annoying buzz sound from earpiece when phone is active, in standby mode or during call there is No. Its very low level but its there. Did anybody has similar problem or not. Its a software issue or hardware? Im with MIUI 188.8.131.52 Global 9.2
AnonD-746613, 24 Mar 2018Thank you very much for your reply and your help my dear friend. The only reason I'm also inte... moreyou are right, the differences are not that obvious, the processor of redmi 5 got great number in benchmarks too. being a bit smaller and 23g lighter is not bad trade for that small performance difference.
Irfan, 24 Mar 2018Redmi 5 plus or xperia L1definitely redmi 5 plus, the L1 is very low spec phone, you cant compare that entry level mobile with this phone, that phone has very bad processor, with battery life half this phone.
redmi 5 plus , its a excellent phone for listen music , even in the pass i use 8 gb ram sony m4 , int the past I am suprise the speed is fast when i m a musician student that listen music, the only problem of this phoneis easy to corrupt, other than that just go for it, its worth to buy this phone .
