Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus review

23 January 2018
So, no more Redmi Notes eh? The Redmi 5 Plus should clearly have been the Note 5, a successor of the Redmi Note 4, but Xiaomi wanted a fresh start. The fifth generation is trying to shake things up and the new look obviously called for a new name. So, Xiaomi retired the Note brand promoting the Plus from a mere qualifier to a proper name. The phablet lives on regardless, and goes all-in with a wide 6" screen.

Great phone for 150 euro. In 2019 got android 8.1 Pretty much can agree with what been stated in the video although the battery life does not appear that great to me.

In the specification it is planned to upgrade to pie but as I know so far there is no official news about that from Xiaomi. According to their policy they give only one major update to redmi device which redmi 5 plus already got one. Is it an error made by gsmereana? I wanted some clarification.

The new software update (MIUI 10), although being a beta version, turns down the batteri quality a lot and makes it lose percentage fast. I wish you could go back to MIUI 9 while MIUI 10 we're beta. Also the phone comes with *a lot* of highly unnecessary bloatware that takes up tons of storage. But overall I would say that this phone is worth the price. Good looking, great camera and with a lot of customability with the app 'Themes' that was sadly not available in my region but I just changed my region to India.
