The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 one of the high-end models in the current Redmi line-up.The phone sports a large 5.99-inch, 18:9 IPS panel, a 4,000 mAh battery and a decently powerful Snapdragon 625 chipset. What mostly sets it apart from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is the camera setup. The latter has a single main snapper at its disposal, so the distinction is easy enough. The Note 5 is the first of the Note range to come out with a full screen display making watching videos and playing games on the FHD+ display, this smartphone ensures you never have a dull moment again.
Due to the finish it seems to attract fingerprints but that is just a minor issue. The screen is quite large and can be bulky for all but those with larger hands. Xiaomi uses their own user interface called the MIUI 9 which is placed on top of the android software.
Is it for you?

What we like
The Redmi Note 5 will instantly identify facial features and offer thousands of natural enhancements for any face due to the AI-based technology. The Snapdragon 625 makes the Note 5 the fastest Redmi yet, and features the global debut of the cutting-edge octa-core processor, which implements Kryo architecture. This greatly improves overall performance and power efficiency. The Snapdragon 625 outperforms its predecessor by up to 40%.
What we don’t like
Some people may feel that the Note 5 could have done with a larger internal storage and 6GB of ram to improve the performance. The camera did not perform as well as we would have liked in low light situations. The issue of the Note 5 as Xiaomi have still not made it waterproof, but this is to save on production cost so they can provide you with a cost-effective option.
Should you buy it?
The Redmi Note 5 is a performance upgrade from the Note 4 and offers you a full screen display and providing an incredible look and feel, the 2.5D curved Corning Gorilla Glass display is resistant to wear, making it highly durable.
