There is no denying that Xiaomi has a tight grip on the budget segment in the Indian smartphone market. The Chinese manufacturer's Redmi and Redmi Note series have been really popular, so much so that the Redmi Note 4 (Review) recently became India's best selling smartphone. It also helped Xiaomi become the number one smartphone seller in India, beating Samsung and other rivals.

  • Best budget phone.
    Amit Kumar (Oct 8, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Pros- 1.) FHD+ Display with less bezels. 2.) Battery life is very good. 3.) Front Camera is awesome with potrait mode. 4.) Face Recognition and Fingerprint Scanner. Cons:- 1.) Hybrid Sim-Slot (SIM1 + SIM2/SD Card) 2.) Rear Camera is average. I'm using this device since July and fully satisfied with Redmi Note 5. The only problem I faced is Rear Camera suffers in low-light conditions. Rest is fine. So I recommend people to buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.

  • Mid Range Performance
    Dorothy CK (Jul 23, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    The battery on this device lasts long enough. However the camera quality isn't satisfactory. Lacks stabilisation and focus. Extremely poor camera performance when using third party apps. Phone keeps hanging after update.
