          Just installed dotos 5.2.1 with gaps. Its A11 based, but mutch smoother than LOS 19.1 on A12. No lags or stutters, compleete bare minumum of apps. Great option to have less googled fone :)

              Anonymous, 06 Jun 2022After update to android 8.1 is lagging af.Yes

                I had used Redmi 5 2GB/16GB for a year. It is quite good in this price range. In this phone I had storage of only 9.8GB which is quite less. After the latest updates in 2022 the phone is lagging terribly & it has freeze, hang problems. Software updates are not good in this. Many bugs are there.
                Due to low RAM & space very few apps we can use in this.
                Camera Quality is OK, Sound Quality is also OK, Battery life reduces after 2-3 months, & it will last for 1 day.
                But if you have to attend Meets, Calls on ZOOM, Google Duo, Meet for 1-2 hours I will not suggest to buy this.
                Screen quality is quite lower.
                I had purchased this phone 3 years ago at Rs.8999 & still it is working.
                It is OK to buy if you want an alternate mobile only for Calling, Camera & Torch. But I will prefer to go with 3GB OR 4GB.

                          Unlock bootloader and install lineage os 19.1 (android 12.1) Everthing works faster and better with this rom. Pure android is incredible with redmi 5. Im using this device for 4 years and it's still works fine. Getting rid of miui and awkward chinese apps makes this device perfect. Trust me.

Got this as a gift but I am quite destructive and finally rolled over it with my car. The thing is it is still charging and operational. This screen is a gonner though. Will try to get a replacement.

                                  Been having and using this phone since July 2018, so just a bit over 3 years.

                                  This phone has survived daily shenanigans performed by my 2,5y.o toddler and not a single crack on the screen. Some mild scratches on the back side but it's nothing I can't tolerate.

                                  Just last night, my son decided to dip the phone into the bathtub. It fully submerged for maybe a minute before my husband took it from the tub. It was still on. I quickly removed the casing and towel it dry and left it overnight in a bowl of rice to dry. It works just fine in the morning.

                                  Seriously, if you have a baby/toddler, this phone is amazingly resilient. In comparison, my husband has had 2 sam**ng phones broken from being dropped or smashed by our toddler.

                                    I want to ask, why does the redmi 5 phone always have problems when you want to change the password on this mobile device?

                                        You can try to:
                                        - restart your phone
                                        - turn off battery saver (if it turned on)
                                        - check the software updates
