Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus Hong Kong – An Anticipated Upgrade

In a nutshell, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus is a better, upgraded version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. It’s quite similar to the Redmi Note 4 with the exception of the processor, display ratio, and memory and storage. The smartphone was first released in China and will enter the international market once the global ROM is available.

Bigger, Better, and Budget-Friendly

Like previously mentioned, this new Xiaomi smartphone has a bigger screen than its predecessors from the Redmi smartphone line. It features a 5.99-inch full HD-display with 18:9 (2160 x 1080) display. It has an increased PPI of 403, which is a bit more than the 401PPI on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4’s 5.5-inch screen. The quality of the display remains the same, if not better. It offers more vibrant visuals along with customizable settings to adjust the color balance, viewing modes, and so on.

Newer, Stronger Processors

This Xiaomi smartphone not only comes with a better and bigger display but a stronger, faster processor. The Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus runs on a 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with a 3GB RAM. You can also expand the memory through a microSD card for up to 128GB. This high-performing processor is then powered by 4000mAh non-removable battery that despite its powerful punch, remains thin to allow a slimmer and sleeker body.

Familiar Silhouette

If you place the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 side by side, it’s almost impossible to tell them apart without a close inspection. The Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus measures at 158.50mm x 75.45mm x 8.05mm, a slight increase in size from the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 151mm x 76mm x 8.5mm dimensions. The only difference is that on the back, the borders are no longer painted chrome so the design is seamlessly monochromatic and uniform. When turned over, the bezels on the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus is slightly slimmer than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and it completely omits the buttons on its bezels.

The Downside

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus doesn’t automatically come with the latest Android operating system, the Oreo. Although it has the MIUI 9 interface that allows you to split your screen, features a new video app, and lets you customize your shortcuts, this interface is based on the previous Android OS, the Nougat.

Another downside to this Xiaomi smartphone is the micro-USB port. In an era where the majority of Android smartphones utilize a USB-C charging port, this can quickly become an inconvenience. Although Xiaomi Mi phones already feature the newer USB-C charging port, it may take more than just the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus to bring the port over to the Redmi product line.
