Best budget phone.
By Amit Kumar | 8 Oct 2018
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
By Dorothy CK | 23 Jul 2018
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.
