Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus review


So, no more Redmi Notes eh? The Redmi 5 Plus should clearly have been the Note 5, a successor of the Redmi Note 4, but Xiaomi wanted a fresh start. The fifth generation is trying to shake things up and the new look obviously called for a new name. So,...

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: Is this the best sub-£200 phone in the world? Review | ZDNet


The 5.99-inch Redmi 5 Plus looks, feels and performs like a much more expensive smartphone. It's not perfect, but the drawbacks are minor.

Excellent value ; Very good battery life ; Large, high-quality screen ; Decent cameras ; Well made and good looking

MicroUSB rather than Type-C ; No NFC ; Chipset not the most modern ; You'll need to buy one from China

Xiaomi stamps its class yet again in the budget segment with the spiritual successor to one of its blockbuster value champs.

Good build quality;Smooth performance;Good imaging quality in favorable lighting;Very affordable

Display is a little too dim and reflective;Camera is not optimal for night scenes;Competition is closing the gap in features and performance

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

Test : Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, pour à peine plus de 200 euros, ce smartphone frôle l'excellence


Le Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus et son écran 18:9 de 6 pouces offrent une expérience confortable et de bonnes performances pour un tarif imbattable.

Un excellent rapport qualité-prix ; Un design premium ; Un bel écran Full HD+ 18:9 ; Une excellente autonomie

Le capteur d'empreinte situé trop haut ; Le manque d'optimisation logicielle ; Pas d'USB Type-C

Écopant d'une excellente note, le Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus entre dans le , et s’offre le luxe d’être le smartphone le moins cher de cette catégorie. Entre son écran Full HD+ 18:9, son design premium, son excellente autonomie et sa bonne ergonomie, le Xiaomi...

Test du Xiaomi Redmi 5 : le meilleur smartphone à moins de 200 euros ?


Vendu 170 euros, le Xiaomi Redmi 5 profite d'un grand écran au format 18/9, avec une ergonomie repensée. Le smartphone figure parmi les meilleurs rapports qualité-prix de ce début d'année 2018.

L'un des meilleurs rapports qualité-prix du moment ; Un bel écran 18:9 ; Le capteur d'empreintes très réactif

La capacité de stockage limitée ; Pas d'USB Type-C

Nous avions beaucoup apprécié le Redmi 4, nous adorons le Redmi 5. En dépit d’un tarif très accessible, le smartphone offre une prestation complète et équilibrée. Ses principales faiblesses restent sa mémoire vive de seulement 2 Go et sa capacité de...

uitstekende luidspreker ; goede stemkwaliteit ; vrijwel geen bloatware ; helder beeldscherm met goede kleurweergave ; redelijk krachtige prestaties ; hoge kwaliteit behuizing

in sommige apps problemen met de GPS ; langzaam WLAN ; (nog) geen Android 8 ; hoog stroomverbruik ; matige batterijduur
