Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus review

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus Smartphone Review

 

Lots of screen for little money. The Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus offers a large display and a mid-range performance for less than 200 Euros (~$236). This sounds like a good offer, but let us look more closely in our test!

great speaker ; good voice quality ; hardly any bloatware ; bright screen with good color reproduction ; fairly powerful performance ; high-quality case

problems with the GPS receiver in some apps ; slow WLAN ; no Android 8 (yet) ; high power consumption in parts ; mediocre battery life

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus offers a modern 18:9 display format with small bezels, a good voice quality, a great speaker, a high-quality case, and decent performance values.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus Review: 2018's Budget Android Champion?

 

Chinese firm Xiaomi is the often referred to as the Apple of the East, but that's not simple hyperbole; this firm is a massive deal in its homeland thanks to its range of well-made smartphones which deliver a polished user experience at a low cost.

Amazing screen, good camera, fast fingerprint scanner

No NFC, no waterproofing

The Redmi 5 Plus is astonishingly good value for money and puts the efforts of its low-cost rivals to shame, but some may struggle with its China-focused software
