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: 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 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...
