Review


Camera vs A1


Feel like 5 Pro slightly sharper and better dynamic with color rendering.
But notice 5 Pro noise control not as good as A1.
Overall still accepted.

India claim the most powerful processor in midrange smartphone, but the downside still comes with micro USB.

Just launched in India. They got 2 variants: Redmi Note 5 & Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Redmi Note 5 basically is Redmi 5 Plus, just change the name only.

Redmi Note 5 Pro is the only one real successor of Redmi Note 4.

Now wait and see what's the price when it comes to here. Probably more than RM1000.

Just follow one variant only then it should be enough. For example, if you like Redmi series, then follow Redmi series only. If you love Redmi Note, then follow Redmi Note series only.

Even if it doesn't comes with fast charging, it doesn't matter as the phone is already very good value for the price with Snapdragon 636 at that price.

I wonder...if I use Samsung fast charger (QC 2.0) to charge Redmi Note 5 Pro, can I get the QC 2.0 speed on it? Sorry for such a silly question. It's been a while I haven't touched Xiaomi phone. My last Xiaomi phones are Mi3 & Redmi Note 2. notworthy.gif

If you can wait of course get Redmi 5 pro.
If can't wait go with Redmi 5 plus instead of Pro, there's no any issue.
Make sure get 4/64 model.

QC2.0 and QC3.0 doesn't differs in terms of charging speed. It's just QC3.0 is have more voltage and amperage steps to have more efficient charging. Both had the same maximum charging wattage so they will charge at the same rate if both are charging at highest possible wattage. However QC2.0 only had 3 steps so if the phone started to heat up excessively, it would lower the wattage significantly but QC3.0 had much more steps so wattage doesn't decrease by much so provided if the temperature is ideal, both should be similar charging time taken.

Saying QC3.0 is faster than QC2.0 is only partially right.

To be frank.... You really think 1.5hrs can fully charge his fellow?
You all really need to dream more... It takes about 2+hrs to do so...
If the fastest charge in the world need 1+hrs to charge those flagship...
Think back logically... QC2.0 will charge it at same speed?

Nah, I would take the Mi Note 3 over the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro, a phone with Snapdragon 636, micro USB, worse dual camera setup compared to Meizu M6 Note, and no water resistance, when imported to Malaysia will cost a lot and that will the make the phone more expensive compared to the Mi Note 3, a phone with a Snapdragon 660, USB Type C, better dual camera setup(scored 90 marks on DxOMark) and IP67 water resistance.

I think the problem is not whether we can wait or not but whether Mi Malaysia will bring in this model? As you all noticed, even can't get this Pro model in China. laugh.gif

Do you think DirectD going to bring in this? The ROM should be "Global" for Indian market, I think? Then there should not have the faked ROM issue.

Still remember mi4i? It was introduced in India as well back then. And then it was brought into Malaysia afterwards. And yes. It's global rom. I am sure redmi note 5 pro will follow this way as well.

Wow... That is amazing... Then no need QC3 and USB-C 3.0 charging... How many percent? GSM arena give it 29% for 30mins.... So it should be more than 1.5hrs... and with the charging slowing down after 80% means it might take about 2hrs...

Wow... That is amazing... Then no need QC3 and USB-C 3.0 charging... How many percent? GSM arena give it 29% for 30mins.... So it should be more than 1.5hrs... and with the charging slowing down after 80% means it might take about 2hrs...

He means the phone support qc 3.0 it just didn't come with a qc3.0 charger like what apple did.

Nah, I would take the Mi Note 3 over the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro, a phone with Snapdragon 636, micro USB, worse dual camera setup compared to Meizu M6 Note, and no water resistance, when imported to Malaysia will cost a lot and that will the make the phone more expensive compared  to the Mi Note 3, a phone with a Snapdragon 660, USB Type C, better dual camera setup(scored 90 marks on DxOMark)  and IP67 water resistance.

Depend on preference. Someone will prefer to have a relatively larger battery, larger screen, audio jack and huge dev support.

Mi note 3 currently is lacking dev support in XDA which is a big letdown despite its good specs.

It's likely produced in the india factory. If they don't launch this in china, can we even import this? India import no free trade area, higher taxes right?

This I have no idea about import tax from India... sad.gif

Still remember mi4i?  It was introduced in India as well back then. And then it was brought into Malaysia afterwards. And yes. It's global rom. I am sure redmi note 5 pro will follow this way as well.
*

Yes, I bought Mi4i from Mi Malaysia last time, my first Xiaomi phone. biggrin.gif
But have no idea it took how long for Mi Malaysia to bring this in.

The problem is, what to do when 4GB/64GB version of Redmi 5 Plus release end of this month? To get it or to wait? Already waited this 5 Plus for so long, really don't want to keep waiting and waiting and waiting...

The hardware and price for Mi Note 3 is not bad, but I don't like the screen ratio. laugh.gif

If you don't play games and don't mind the quality of the camera, then just go for the Redmi 5 Plus. But if these 2 factors are important to your usage, then better wait for Redmi Note 5 Pro. That's how I look at it. Always choose the one that suits your need the most. thumbsup.gif

The 18:9 screen, dual lens camera and front camera flash and all is certainly nice but I think I'll wait for the A1 successor.

Stock android is kinda a must for maximum smoothness and future android updates. Hope they would include a nice 18:9 screen, flash for the front camera, ip6x water resistance and bigger battery. Don't mind paying more!

Yup! I seldom play game, even if I do, I play mostly 2D puzzle games.

I'm not really care about the camera that much because about 70% of photos in my gallery are product samples, static objects etc... laugh.gif

After breaking up all these, I think 4GB RAM version of Redmi 5 Plus should be enough for me, really don't know the reason or what is the point of those "extra capabilities" for my usage. tongue.gif

I meant that the camera is bad for videos, you need OIS for good camera which can do both videos and photos well. A good camera needs OIS to be good at videos, it's like you've never used a high end smartphone before.

And android Oreo had been introduced since last year yet they still come with Nougat doh.gif

I'm positive Redmi Note 5 Pro will not support for project Treble.

It's meaningless to argue about the camera. Redmi Note 5 Pro is still in Redmi line, thus the camera will not up to what we expected it should be.

Damn right. Redmi phones are budget phones. Redmi note 5 pro is a good phone, but it's not a great phone. If you want better camera and better specs, then Redmi phone is clearly not for you.

So guys, please stop condemning why Redmi note pro 5 don't have great camera, why don't have type - c etc. It is what it is. Like it, buy it. Don't like it, then go buy other phone. As simple as that.

Redmi Note 5/ Redmi 5+ looks pointless now. If they limit 2 from each Redmi and Redmi note series, they would have much more resource to focus on software support.

And really disappointed in micro usb choice.

It's reversible, you can plug it upside down from both end.
And most important, it's the new tech. It's the future.

It really is 4xa73+4xa53. This is a weaker version of 660. Looks like a sd650 that won't burn you if you play game. rclxms.gif And the camera is good apparently. I think price sure rm1k + if official warranty. But so far no news it launch in china lol.

When Note 5 is released, will Note 4 and Note 4x as they are now around price RM550-600, will drop below 500?

I remembered Redmi Note 3 didn't drop much below 550, during its near end of stock.

Won't be easy to get hold of it. As of now during flash sale at Flipkart also sold out within seconds. I guess have to wait few months for it.

India has a bigger markets than china markets will sell on taobao or AliExpress.
Now it's hard time to get from India.

To be honest like India made ,not easy to buy parts or LCD screen from any else.
If it's accidentally drop on the floors.
Unlike china assembly still able to get from AliExpress for all those parts..

Redmi Note 5 Pro or Mi Note 3?

Mi Note 3 have better SoC (SD660)
Mi Note 3 have USB-C
Both have good camera - do not know the difference until there is comparison
Redmi Note 5 Pro is cheaper (speculation since it is not here yet)

I am moving towards Redmi Note 5 Pro cause I don't care about USB-C (have lots of micro usb cable) and the cheaper price which I projected.

Hope they have global ROM version.

Oh..I was thinking about Mi A1 vs RN5pro on the camera part. Thanks for correcting me. Mi Note 3 camera is good too but we don't know until someone make the comparison.

I will probably wait few months then decide to get Mi Note 3 or Redmi Note 5 pro. I am moving towards Redmi Note 5 pro because it is top selling in India which means there will be a lot of thirdparty ROM support in the future. Also more likely to get ability to root the phone.

Mi A1 good for day light in portrait mode, but dose not meant the OS was gooding for overall .

Mi Note 3 was good on camera and portrait mode.
Is it can buy those accessories in MY?
Even screen protector or case.

Redmi note 5 pro will be on the way for hand on, so we can do anything to comments as much now.

To me Miui is better than Android One .

I think Xiaomi need to stop releasing so many phone models. This Redmi Note 5 Pro is almost the same as Mi Note 3 and Mi 6. They only will saturated their own market further and adding more work for their MiUI team to update firmware for the various models. That is why you see Samsung never update their low to mid range phones. They only update firmware (android version) for their high end models.

I was agreed.

Mi Note 3 not coming to MY.
Mi 6 still in higher performance range.
Note 5 Pro for high performance in midrange.

Xiaomi have their market strategy , they always focusing to everyone needs.

Can be cheap until high-end price range.
If you are the Xiaomi fag, you will following what is the latest Xiaomi products in the market so far.

The bad thing was phone price too cheap and lot of choices until you get confused.

Samsung like you got money come to buy me.

My point is, they release too many models until they don't have time to support the firmware. Look at redmi note 3. They promise Oreo for it but until now still no Oreo support.

Been using Redmi note 3 SD AP set bought it for rm620 from gem five at early 2016. Phone's been gooding till now. MIUI has certainly been good enough.
I skipped RN4 because i think the 5th would have major changes. So far Redmi Note 5 Pro satisfies the specs and budget. Lucky i saw the launch of this rn5 pro coz i almost wanted to buy Nova 2i.

i hv to say, miui have more frequent release cycle for lowend phone... compared to sammie
and after 2-3years... sammie (midrange phone) totally stop releasing any updates

miui (lowend phone) as of rite now... once in awhile still releasing update
their problem is...
they didnt release any kernel source or upgrade the os to android 6,7 or 8 as promised

another thing, oreo WITHOUT Project Treble is SHIIITT

They did not promise oreo for that phone, where did you even hear it.

Xiaomi snapdragon phones, you will get 1 android update then they update their os for around 3 years. Redmi 1s finally get their last miui update with 9. You compare huawei, get 1 android update thats it. Samsung supposedly j series get update now, I know in the past 0 updates for budget series. I think my friend's j7+ only august or september security patch, redmi note 3 is january patch. Don't just listen to the websites complain, furthermore miui 9 update speed up the phone by a lot. I tried before custom rom on that phone can't feel the supposed faster aosp, the same only. Official lineage os actually slower. You can feel miui kill app early to keep os smooth, lineage wait until no more ram to kill so it become laggy like the old android.

I'm prettt sure that Xiaomi didn't promise Oreo for that particular model or even hint about it. It's only the forumer keep spamming we want Oreo or petition.

Project Treble is not android dependant but it is mostly manufacturer's responsibility
Oneplus 5T comes with Oreo but without project Treble
implementation takes time and work, which most OEMs doesnt do as frequent

// on the side note

hope this phone comes to Malaysia fast because my RN3pro is dying

Redmi Note 5 & Note 5 Pro moniker only for India market coz they didn't market Redmi 5 & 5 Plus over there.

Others market if they got Redmi 5 Plus they wont get Redmi Note 5.. they only get RN5 aka RN5 Pro..

Too many stock. FYI, Xiaomi is the largest customer of Snapdragon. News said they bought a lot of SD 625. Of course they would have to try so hard to clear off the stock.

I dont thing so coz is all about pricing & at this day all phone with SD660 price more than RM1.5k.. If Xiaomi want to keep price below RM1k, SD625/636 is the best until SD700 series become available.. At that time SD660 is the best SoC below RM1k

Is it faulty or due to firmware version? Have you tried reset the phone? Mine is still working very well. I didn't update the firmware for quite some time. I think it is a few version backdated.

Who care about GSMarena's news while they always copied other sources without any verification.

When we talk about Xiaomi news, always refer to Xiaomi official weibo (twitter in China). It represents Xiaomi official, so their announcement is the most accurate one.

In Xiaomi official weibo, they posted a poll and asked the people to vote which part of phone spec they wish to have surprise. The result is not important. The one we should concern about is the hint that given by the Xiaomi official. Apparently, Xiaomi official voted the camera. Indirectly telling us that there's a surprise on the camera performance of the upcoming Redmi Note 5 Pro China version.


If you ask me which one to believe, of course I will always trust their official twitter.
