Xiaomi Redmi 5 review


Xiaomi's Redmi line has become synonymous with quality Android experience on a budget with a good reason. It is nearly impossible to beat the up and coming Chinese manufacturer's value propositions, especially if you live in a Xiaomi-covered market.

Xiaomi Redmi 5


Xiaomi's budget dominance continues. Xiaomi Redmi 5.

Big 18:9 display ; Fast fingerprint scanner ; Brilliant value for money

No waterproofing ; No NFC ; Low-resolution display

The Redmi 5 offers an impressive 18:9 screen along with decent internal tech for a bargain price, but it’s not officially available in the UK, so be prepared for some extra effort to get it running as expected.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 review: Average camera and confusing pricing aside, this entry-level smartphone is built to impress


Xiaomi's own Redmi Note 5 is its closest competitor.

All said and done, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 is the smartphone to beat in the entry-level segment. It can easily take down any other offering in the 'performance vs value for money' debate and now it even looks good.

An almost bezel-less smartphone of the highest-caliber, available at a bargain

The screen quality is great ; The battery can easily last you a whole day ; Slim full metal design is sexy ; MIUI 9 is light and steady ; Price is too good to be true

No USB Type-C

An attractive budget smartphone with great power, simplicity and quality
