I bought Redmi Note 5 3GB, 32GB version few months ago. Then I realised I should have bought the Note 5 Pro 4GB, 64GB version instead! Better processor, more RAM, and headphone jack is at the bottom! Since I installed a lot of apps on the Note 5 and used Second space too, the phone is laggy sometimes. And whenever I fast forward a youtube video, it will pause for 2-3 seconds to load. This is quite bad, compared to my back-up phone iPhone 6 which shows no pause when fast forward youtube video!
Overall, the Note 5 is still a decent phone with great battery, lots of features (second space, dual app, dual screen, etc.), decent camera (especially the 184.108.40.206 version changes the camera UI to be better, much easier to switch from taking photos to taking videos!). 9.6.50 also brings Face unlock feature which is kind of fun!
Maybe next time when I upgrade I will choose a Note 5 Pro successor instead!
