I just updated to this phone after using RN4. I am just blown away buy this phone due to its price. Display quality is top notch specially when you set its contrast to high. Black levels are more then 100 percent better as compared to old one. Speaker loudness is bang even much better then mi A1 because it has much better mids. Audio output is also better then previous one. Feels much slimmer and really looks good with pouch given with this handset. Selfie is little bit improved and front led flash improves overall quality. Rear camera is newer this time with 1.25um pixel size which translates into crisper photo quality. I am more then satisfied as Xioami as gone through every aspect of the phone and yes icons are charm to look at with gradient effects and better colors. Its biggest bang for the buck.
I upgrade from note 3 pro. The battery is the good part of the phone. Looking forward to note 5 pro.
Bought this phone, excellent product, 300% worth of its price, huawei trolls can rest in peace.

Camera does have manual mode, front camera is not the best but does the job. Use the phone before bashing please
miui5a, 22 Feb 2018please post a review after using some days.. i am interested in this modelSome more impressions to add:
Camera is pretty decent, but to get better results, you should set "sharpness" to "higher" in options and leave HDR mode turned on. Front camera is not good, but does the job.
Battery is not perfect for the size, with online radio streams it drains quite fast. But there seems to be no background draining problems. In standby it drains 1% per 1.5-2h.
MIUI version is 220.127.116.11. There is an OTA upgrade, but i see a lot of complains of bricking the phone so i'm planning on staying with 18.104.22.168 for now as there seems to be no issues with it so far.

Budget phones with manual mode options in camera.
Works fine with no lag.
I used 6x for 1 year.
I just bought redmi 5 plus and regreting on my decision.
Bigger screen with low ram. Lags too much. Battery drain fast. Bloatwares. Heating issues. Slow charging takes about 3 hours or more. No manual mode in camera. No interesting features in camera. Undeleteable and non disable bloatwares.
Simply, its nothing infront of huawei x series budget phones.
Still missing my redmi note 1, the very first Xiaomi note series model. I purchased it in earlier November 2014. I admit for daily driver, it was still fits. 2 times changing battery. Only the radio signal for network access decreased because fall many times. Untill i lost it 1 month ago. Hence, we shouldn't underestimate mi phones as long as its an original one. Redmi note 5(5plus) is a worthy upgrade for me. I really satisfied for my new redmi device, thanks Xiaomi.
