#1

Hey guys so I decided to get myself a secondary device earlier on last week and I was stuck between the camon X Pro and the redmi 5 plus(4gb 64gb variant).I decided to for the Xiaomi honestly I’m not a fan of mediateck socs😂.This phone packs the Snapdragon 625. 4gigs of ram and 64gigs of internal storage and a whooping 4000mah battery…I’ll be doing a full review later on bah the battery life is great I got this device on Sunday and I’ve only charged it once😎

Xiaomi has not been doing that well in the camera department even on it’s flagship phones when compared to arch rivals and the same case applies to the redmi 5 plus.Though the pictures taken are decent and Instagram ready…The camon line is way ahead in terms of the camera department.

It has been said here a few times that you get a lot from Xiaomi phones, just not a good camera.

There is also the Miui that is aggressive in energy saving and may end up keeping your notifications and alerts away from you. Otherwise they are generally good phones. I wouldn’t buy them though.

1 Good battery life
2 The FHD display is quite good and the viewing angles are good to though it suffers under direct sunlight.
3 poor poor ram management​:unamused::unamused:
4 I haven’t encountered any lags though the Snapdragon 625 does the job quite well though I’d have loved if it came with the most recent SD 636.

this is because of MIUI that is heavily customized

as I have said previously I love this phone dearly. Used it for two and a half months now. excellent battery life (8 hours SOT), good rear camera, unusable selfie camera, excellent WIFI and network reception, software update every 3 weeks so far and waiting on MIUI 10.

ps. Ram management is quite good probably because I don’t game.

Rooting and installation is such a process and it’s not that bad at the moment
