Xiaomi’s Redmi lưu ý series has long been our value-for-money winner. As a rule of thumb, these phones have offered exceptional performance in their class & are usually paired with an above sầu average display và camera.

These phones were not marvels of engineering, but they represented an incredible value in a market where the lower segment was just about compromises on all fronts.

In 2018, this is no longer true. Heavy-hitters lượt thích Huawei have sầu realised the importance of the budget và mid-range segment of the market và are muscling their way in.

A year ago, the lathử nghiệm entry in the lưu ý series stood alone, head and shoulders above the competition. In 2018, the newest phone in the series, the Redngươi chú ý 5, is facing off against some exceptional smartphones, including the Honor 9 Lite, Mokhổng lồ M & several others.

Has competition finally caught up to lớn the high bar once mix by Xiaomi? Are the heydays of the lưu ý series at an end?

Build và Design: 8/10

Two trends defined 2017: Dual-cameras và tall displays. While the chú ý 5 misses out on the former, it has ably adopted the latter.

The phone is tall, with a 5.99-inch 18:9 display, và has a well-made metal toàn thân. There are no rough edges and the fit và finish are impeccable.

The first thing that you notice when you piông xã up the phone is its weight. At 181 grams, it’s definitely on the heavier side và is, in fact, heavier than the glass-backed iPhone X.

In terms of thiết kế, not much has changed. The taller aspect ratio of the phone is all that sets it apart from last year’s lưu ý 4. This would normally be perfectly acceptable, but the eye-catching Honor 9 Lite is leagues ahead in the thiết kế department & shows that there are better options out there.

To put it another way, the 9 Lite will turn heads, the chú ý 5 will not.

The display is tall, but bezels are still present. The top houses the usual assortment of sensors, including the earpiece speaker, front camera, flash, etc. The bottom bezel is blank, with Xiaongươi opting lớn go for software buttons rather than capacitive sầu ones.

The left side is where you’ll find the hybrid dual-SIM tray và the right is where you’ll find the volume và power buttons. For the sake of nit-picking, I’d say that the buttons are a little bit mushy và could have sầu been clickier.

The bottom edge is where you’ll find a microUSB charging port (no USB-C here) và the two speaker grilles. And fear not, the headphone jaông xã remains và finds a home page for itself on the top of the phone.

The rear camera và fingerprint sensor are aligned to the centre of the rear of the device. A dual-tone LED flash sits between them.

Features: 8/10

As usual, Xiaomi manages to paông xã in some great hardware at a reasonable price point. Your money gets you a Snaprồng 625-powered device with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a 5.99-inch 18:9 LCD display with an FHD+ resolution (2160x1080), a 12 MPhường. f/2.2 rear camera, a 5 MP f/2.0 front camera và finally, a 4,000 mAh battery.

Power and connectivity is delivered via a microUSB port at the bottom. The tai nghe jack is at the top.


Compared lớn the phone it replaces, you’re losing 1 MP on the rear camera và 100 mAh from overall battery capathành phố. In exchange, you’re gaining a larger display và possibly, an improved camera (more on that later). The minuscule loss in battery life should also not have a significant impact.

The Snapdragon 625, while almost two years old now, still sets the bar in this price segment.

I expected more from a trend-setting điện thoại thông minh, but I’m not also not too disappointed since few phones offer such features at this price.

Display: 7.5/10

The only stand-out feature of the Redmày cảnh báo 5’s display is that it is tall. Colours are decent and the FHD+ resolution on a 5.99-inch display is good enough for sharp images and text.


The display’s contrast ratio is a bit low, as are default brightness levels. I found myself constantly setting a higher brightness value in almost all conditions and especially when watching videos. On the other h&, if you put the brightness too high, the backlight bleeds through more strongly. The edges of the display are rounded.


Coming from an iPhone 8, I enjoyed the larger screen. Videos are a pleasure to lớn watch, provided you turn up the brightness, và apps these days allow you khổng lồ zoom in lớn fill up the display.

This is not an exceptional display và is good enough for a phone in this price bracket. Its aspect ratio also makes the phone seem like a product of 2018.

Software: 8/10

Xiaomi’s MIUI is iOS-inspired & shares the Cupertino giant"s inertia when it comes to change. You’re not going to lớn see sweeping changes with each iteration, but what is present is constantly being tweaked và improved upon. It’s among mỏi the better skins for Android, but given that MIUI 9.2 is still based on Android 7 Nougat (Android 9.0 is coming soon, by the way), I’m not particularly excited.

If you have used a Xiaomày phone in the past, the UI will be very familiar. It’s a good skin for Android & I vì lượt thích how refined the animations are. Skins from the competition tend lớn feel a little unrefined.

It’s a comfortable skin to use, but a tad dull, & given a choice, I’d have sầu preferred an Android One-based OS.

Performance: 7.5/10

Given the hardware, the performance is virtually unchanged from that of its predecessor. The phone feels snappy & is quick lớn respond lớn input đầu vào. The animations were also always fluid and I never noticed any dropped frames or lag. In synthetic benchmarks, the phone was faster than similarly-priced phones.


Apps opened and closed quickly and games ran beautifully. The phone never heated up unduly, only getting slightly warm in demanding situations.

The one area where I noticed issues was in đoạn phim playbaông xã. This wasn’t a frequent occurrence, but every once in a while, the đoạn phim frame in YouTube or Netflix would freeze while the audio ran on normally. The video clip would then accelerate khổng lồ hóa trang for the lost frames. This issue wasn’t frequent enough to lớn be annoying, but it popped up frequently enough khổng lồ get noticed.

Network performance was great in the time I used the device. I only used it in single SIM mode và never had unusual drops in the network. Gọi chất lượng was great.

Audio over headphones was decent — the bass was on the boomier side, not very precise — và the speaker should be loud enough for home page use.

Camera: 7/10

Xiaomi’s gone for a bog-standard camera layout on the chú ý 5. There aren’t any oversized front sensors, large apertures or dual-cameras to lớn be found. What you get is a 12 MPhường f/2.2 rear camera & a 5 MPhường f/2.0 front camera.

The good news is that the rear camera can capture some stunning images in good lighting. Outdoors and in bright sunlight, provided your subject is within a few feet of the camera, images look amazing. Photos so captured can hold their own with those from phones two to lớn three times the price.

Sadly, the light just has khổng lồ fall slightly for the image unique to lớn drop to an average cấp độ. Images in low-light are noticeably bad and the camera simply fails to capture any details.

Even indoors, images of brightly lit subjects are filled with noise. Another issue is that you can’t expect to crop the images. Shots in daylight look great when they’re filling the screen, but zoom in even slightly và you’ll start to notice blurred textures và fuzzy outlines.


I also don’t think the camera is as fast as it could be. I missed several shots of fast-moving subjects because the shutter didn’t respond immediately when pressed. The camera also doesn’t trachồng moving subjects very well. HDR mode is even slower khổng lồ respond but is worth enabling when you have sầu the time lớn compose và take your shot.

Selfies are particularly disappointing. They’re usually full of noise and laông xã detail.

Overall, the camera is decent và is an improvement over last year"s cảnh báo 4. However, I have to bring up the Honor 9 Lite again. Offering 4 cameras at a similar price point, the 9 Lite takes things khổng lồ the next cấp độ.

Battery Life: 8/10

The Snaprồng 625 powering this phone is an inherently efficient chip. My daily usage, which consists of dozens of mails, over a hundred messages, a few dozen calls & at least a couple of hours of video sees the phone lasting me a day and a half or more.

Xiaongươi hasn’t confirmed the charging standard that they’re using in the Note 5. They have sầu, however, bundled a 10 W charger with the phone (Apple only bundles 5 W chargers, even with the iPhone X).

The bundled charger can fully charge the phone in around two hours. For a 4,000 mAh phone that costs less than Rs 15,000, that’s not bad at all. However, this is about the same as it was last year.

Verdict

The Redmày cảnh báo 5 ticks all the right boxes & offers a great package at a great price. For the very first time in years, Xiaomày has competition breathing down its neông xã. The Redmày chú ý 5 is no longer the budget king. That honor, punnily enough, goes khổng lồ the Honor 9 Lite.

The cảnh báo 5 is a good phone, but it"s also boring. It"s capable, but it"s not as exciting anymore.
