And now with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, the company continues that trend, giving its rivals in the mid-range category a run for their money. Here is what you need to know about Xiaomi 紅米Note5 specs.
Striking design language
Design-wise, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has some striking features including slim bezels and the 18:9 display, which you will likely notice at first glance. These features are among the most common trends in smartphones these days, besides the notch. To protect the device from scratches, the display is topped with a 2.5D Gorilla Glass. And at the top of the display, you will find the 13 MP selfie shooter, LED flash and sensors.
Decent color reproduction and viewing angles
The Xiaomi 紅米Note5 sports a 5.99-inch IPS display with an FHD+ resolution (1080x2160p) and a pixel density of 403ppi. This provides a good color reproduction and viewing angles, so you can expect that the text and images will appear sharp and vibrant. You will also have the ability to change the colors through modes such as Warm, Cool, or Standard. The same goes if you want to adjust the contrast by choosing among Automatic, Increased, and Standard modes.
The 紅米Note5 isn’t falling behind the trends when it comes to cameras, as it comes with a dual 12MP+5MP camera that is packed with a lot of features! These include HHT (Hand-held Twilight), Portrait, Panorama, Manual, Beautify, and HDR mode. As for the front shooter, it has a resolution of 13 megapixels and shares most features with the dual rear cameras, except for the HHT.
In terms of performance, the phone’s autofocus is quick and doesn’t pose any issues when locking on subjects - be it portrait, landscape, or macro. You can expect the images to provide a good amount of detail; the same goes for shots taken in poor lighting or against the light. All in all, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5’s image quality is on par with phones above its category.
Impressive mid-range CPU and battery life
Beneath its slim frame, the 紅米Note 5 houses a Snapdragon 636 chip, Adreno 509 GPU, and 4GB of RAM, making it on par with top-notch mid-range phones like Asus Zenfone 5. You can expect its performance to be fast and smooth when launching and operating social media apps and games such as PUBG Mobile. As for its battery life, the Redmi Note 5 boasts a 4000mAh battery that can you through a whole day of mobile gaming (low-to-mid-end graphics) and browsing social networks.
