I asked tech support for some help on my phone's adaptor for its European charger because the adaptor that came with it wouldn't charge.

Sentiments around speed ( 4 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

TLDR: The main things you look for in a phone these days: Screen, camera, speed, stability.

Speed: Seems fluid and snappy so far, but that's because it's new.

The speed is monstrous, this bad boy has the ability to open 2 apps at once, play games like PUBG, (Personally not into that) and hold it's battery life for up to 2 days on medium use.

Apps like Camera FV-5 premium, HedgeCam2, and OpenCamera give cleaner results if you know how to use the manual settings, however, the important manual settings like shutter speed, advanced exposition control, and RAW format are unavailable in this phone due to MIUI 10 (Xiaomi just doesn't care) not having Camera2 API.

Apps like Camera FV-5 premium, HedgeCam2, and OpenCamera give cleaner results if you know how to use the manual settings, however, the important manual settings like shutter speed, advanced exposition control, and RAW format are unavailable in this phone due to MIUI 10 (Xiaomi just doesn't care) not having Camera2 API.

If you want Camera2 API you need to unlock the bootloader of your phone (a long process thanks to Xiaomi) and flash a custom ROM that has it or lets you activate it like Resurrection Remix OS or Lineage OS.

The camera can be good if you manage to activate the camera 2 API.

However, I will be saying goodbye to it as soon as Xiaomi unlocks my bootloader and I will flash lineage os just so I can get that sweet sweet Camera2 API.



Sentiments around redmi note ( 6 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

Pictures made with my first Redmi Note 5, this is for my mom.

REDMI Note 5 fits easily in one hand with a sleek, seamlessly designed phone that is pleasing to the eye.

I was thinking about ordering this in advance but I see that it costs about $30 more than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 pro variant that has 4gb RAM + 64GB ROM.

I wasn't any problem with this Redmi Note 5.

Redmi note 5 will be able to get service with that too already can confirm due to some AT&T towers are already 5g in downtown.

Warning: Don't attempt to record in 4k or your Redmi note 5 will crash and reboot.

Battery life is excellent and the screen is decent, though there is slight ghosting and scrolling isn't quite as fluid on a flagship phone (as expected).

TLDR: The main things you look for in a phone these days: Screen, camera, speed, stability.

Bought this phone for my wife, the screen is big enough, and the camera is way better than her old phone.

Sentiments around days ( 11 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

3 days of battery and really good performance.

I can charge it and be good for almost 2 days and I am a pretty heavy phone user.

TLDR: The main things you look for in a phone these days: Screen, camera, speed, stability.

I don't know why people these days spend so much on phones when you can get these which look sleek, work amazingly and last for 2 days!!

While only having to wait for two days for it to get here I read millions of reviews of people complaining and saying doesn't work or got European charger and so on.

I still haven't done it because unlocking the bootloader means waiting more than 3 days for Xiaomi to think I'm worthy of their approval.

Sentiments around calls ( 5 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

And the blue tooth is terrible, not to mention the phone calls just bad.

Bad microphone (issues with calls).

After a few weeks of use have regular problems with placing calls and receiving calls.

When calling, outgoing calls fail consecutively untilSometimes it helps to reset my network settings, which i end up doing more that once a day just to be able to place calls.

The Xiaomi Note 5 was excellent, albeit a few kinks like bad service and dropped calls at times, but other features were great.



Sentiments around device ( 6 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

Not sure if its only my device, but i kind of regret buying this one.

Seems like a nice device but without WiFi calling it is virtually useless to me.

I’m surprised it has Infra-red light so it can be used as a tv remote on any device.

I've been a big Xiaomi fan, i've been with them for years, but this device for some reason is a pain.

This device is not what I what I expected.

It even lets me hotspot like an iphone on this plan, something that is restricted with a samsung device on this plan.



Sentiments around xiaomi ( 16 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

Great work, Xiaomi

Great job xiaomi!

Was hesitant at first but now that I've been using it for about two weeks it's a solid phone and the xiaomi apps are pretty good too.

Customization: MIUI is not that bad, except for Xiaomi blocking the bootloader, aside from that the UI is very customizable and installing themes is a breeze, my favorite is Paper World which is animated.

Xiaomi are changing the game with their phones and price point.

Keep it up Xiaomi



Sentiments around flagship phone ( 3 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

Battery life is excellent and the screen is decent, though there is slight ghosting and scrolling isn't quite as fluid on a flagship phone (as expected).

If you want apple aesthetics and optimal graphics, get this phone or a xiaomi flagship phone.

I would recommend this phone to my family or anyone who doesn’t want to spend big cash on a flagship phone.



Sentiments around iphone ( 5 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

My wife has a $800 iPhone and would prefer my phone after seeing it and messing with it.

First time I had an android in my life, been with iPhone for about 8 years.

It’s more smoother and seems much more better than my iPhone 6 Plus.

I like that I can just use swipes to navigate (like an iphone x) instead of tapping virtual navigation buttons.

It even lets me hotspot like an iphone on this plan, something that is restricted with a samsung device on this plan.



Sentiments around default camera app ( 2 )

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 32GB ROM + 3GB RAM, Dual Camera, Unlocked Smartphone - International Version (Black)

Video: Limited to 1080p by the default camera app, you can go a bit higher with an app like HedgeCam2 or OpenCamera.

The default camera app is the only thing that lets you blur the background with the front camera.
