This is a very good phone. I'm really enjoying it. Everything about this phone is great. I bought it almost a month ago from Jumia Nigeria and I can tell you there hasn't been any complain about its performance.
This phone would be a midrange killer with an AMOLED screen. Software is just "ok", its better with a custom ROM like PixelExperience or HavocOS. I like the fact you can make this phone transparent cleaning the back glass. Camera software is a weak point but totally fixable with Gcam (thanks devs).
In any cricumstances DO NOT install the latest update. Battery life is terrible, screen turns off and on randomly, notifications are buged..terrible!
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2020After several months of use, I can say that this phone's performance gets slower. The apps rar... moreits true, the hardware is good but somehow it is so glitchy and slow, it might be due to the software the xiaomi uses
48mp good for photos
but the videos look like 480p I don't recommend it if you seek to record videos
Not a bad phone though but having used Samsung and Gionee M6 marathon, wanted something new that will "waoo" me in this phone. I am yet to find that after 6months of usage. If you know please share. 48mp camera is worse than normal the camera.
Samiul, 28 Mar 2020Does this phone connects to 5ghz yes bro. i have the phone
I sincerely apologise to the admins of gsmarena for my earlier out burst concerning the review of this phone. Thumbs up.
After several months of use, I can say that this phone's performance gets slower. The apps rarely crash tho. But performance wise, it deteriorates. I was hyped up before it was released but now, I regret getting one. (my opinion)
Cool update android security patch level 2020-02-05 with miui 11.07.0.
When are we getting Android 10?
Problem with my redmi
I have a display remanence and it's very annoying.
Nice upgrade from my previous Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 that was legendary phone for me.
Performance is great, there are some slowdowns but rarely.
Screen feels quite solid compared to Note 4, that's good.
Sometimes has poor signal strength to network carrier or wifi, that's the only real downside I was able to encounter.
Camera definitely isn't best one, but that's to be expected for its price.
Overall quite good and affordable phone, didn't encounter any serious issues yet.
Much better than my old Samsung A5 which I gave to a friend !
Best phone I ever had (and I had a lot !!)
Never had a single problem ... at all ...
I recommended it to all my friends !
The first time I bought this phone, I was really amazed by its display but before I purchased it, the sales lady told me that the most popular issue about this unit is its signal. It's unstable but because of the reviews and unboxing I watched in youtube, I focused more on its pros than cons. Now I'm always getting upset in its signal to the point that I want to throw it hard at the wall. I used to play mobile legends alot and this kind of phone is not for people with short patience.
