Redmi 5 summary

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 is a budget phone with a lot to offer. It uses the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, and has an 18:9 720x1440 screen which a lot of people are looking for in their next phone. The build quality is excellent, but in terms of design this phone isn't quite as borderless as Xiaomi describes it. You can choose between three variants with different combinations of RAM and storage. Battery life was excellent, but we were somewhat disappointed with the cameras. MIUI 9.2.7 has a lot of conveniences but is based on Android 7.1.2 and we missed several Android 8.0 features.
