Redmi Note 5 Pro Review

Redmi Note 5 Pro goes with its name professional. It is the best phone under the 15k segment. Why we are telling you this we will let you through our review.

I got a chance to have hands on 2 months later the mobile launched. And I think Waiting is worthy for this phone. As you know that phone is in high demand itself because of its features and design.


First impression of the phone is got from the design itself. When you see the phone you will notice the bigger screen and no physical button on the front. Phone goes bezel less to give you bigger screen size and resolution. Aspect ratio of the phone is 18:9 which is similar to that of iPhone X. At back the finger print sensor is on the top – middle and with in the hands reach.  Dual camera set up on the top right corner. Aluminium Body Back which is also a unique point. At the bottom there is  3.5mm jack for the headphones, Charger point and speakers. On the one side there is Hybrid SIM slot and on other side Physical volume button and power button.

Face Unlock

One of the premium features which the phone has is face unlocking. You can easily set up this feature and phone can recognise your face within seconds. When you try to open with your face it is just in milliseconds that phone authenticate your face and opens. But when you compare that with the OnePlus 5T. The phone Face unlock of Redmi Note 5 Pro is not as fast as its finger print sensors.
I just tried to use the phone face unlock under low light conditions like in evening where it is not able to recognise my face. So this feature is not as fast as Redmi note 5 pro’s finger print sensor and its competitor also. But Still this feature adds a wing in hat to this phone under such price.

Display and Camera

Phone comes with 6 inches screen with bezel less display. Color contrast and saturation is excellent of this phone. You can also see the screen display under the sun light.

When it comes to the Camera part the phone has dual 12 MP+ 5 MP dual camera which can easily took up the photos with autofocus intact. The large 1.25μm pixel dual camera delivers high-quality images, even in low light conditions. Pairing high-quality Sony and Samsung sensors offers a depth of field not available on typical smartphone cameras.

It is 20 MP selfie camera can makes joke of any smartphone under this range. It has Beautify 4.0 which uses AI technology to detect Facial feature and offers thousands of natural enhancements.
There is Portrait mode for both cameras. Slow-motion is also good.

When its comes to video also it has automatic image stabilization mode which make the steady videos. Though it lacks 4k recording which features in Mi A1 also.

But overall camera features are good. 

Software and User Interface

Redmi Note 5 Pro does not comes with latest Android Oreo which seems to be disappointing thing. Xiaomi packs it with MIUI 9.1 Version based on Nougat. However they have released the stable version of MIUI 9.2. for some enhanced features. Also MIUI 9 comes with lots of customisable options which makes you worry less about the updates. It has app lock which van be used on multiple apps. Space for multiple user profile, photo editor, Mi video app and split screen functionality. SMS app detects the OTP and lets you the copy them with out any hefty process.


Redmi Note 5 Pro heart lies at new Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC. This is the debut of this processor. It slashed down version of Snapdragon 660 for this budget phone.
The octa core processor can be clocked Max at 1.8 Ghz. The faster Adreno 509 GPU makes the performance faster.

As a result the heavier apps loads faster, Booting time becomes less as compared to other phones.
MI browser is also faster.  

Battery Life

Redmi Note 5 pro comes up with 4000 mAh Li-Po battery. When I was using the phone has just idea 4 G SIM. I have sync 4 gmail accounts and used other social media platform with full light display on. The phone usually shows the power for almost 16 hrs.

I also perform high end task with all the using phone and it performs really well as it can run over 11 hrs.

This makes the phone very much reliable with excellent battery back-up.


So if you have read this review you can easily distinguish that why this is the best phone under 15k segment.

It has good rear dual camera, 20 MP front camera, Bezel less design, facial unlocking, great sound and metallic body.
