Hello Welcome To Crazytrickz
We all aware of Xiaomi “The Fastest Growing Brand In India” and they are keep on doing research over Indian consumers and Indian markets. Recently, they have launched 3 new smartphone in Indian Market and they are:
As you already knew by the title of the blog that this blog is not about the features, specification and else, this blog is about Redmi note 5 pro dark side. Yeah, you heard me right. Now you are thinking that Redmi note 5 pro is great phone with cool features and specifications and specially fits in your budget, so what are the cons of this phone.
That’s why we are here, you don’t need to stress yourself. But let me first tell you some highlights of this phone.
So, after talking about lots of good things of Redmi Note 5 pro and its time to tell you somethings that we are expecting from this phone or we have over-expected from Xiaomi.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 pro comes with MIUI 9 which is based on Android Nougat. You don’t think Android 7.1.1 is quite old as Android P is in its final stage to be launched. So, having a phone with lots of good hardware and powerful processor with that a user expect the latest software.
Yeah we know it comes with dual rear camera 12MP + 5MP and a 20 MP front camera for best selfie experience. But this is not what we are talking about, what is the benefit of having superpower when you don’t know how to use it. Same here with Redmi Note 5 Pro, stock camera app is very basic and does not provide a manual mode. Xiaomi compared Redmi Note 5 Pro camera with Google Pixel 2 camera (Joke Of the year 2k18). Nowadays most of the smartphone comes with 4k video video recording even Redmi Note 5 has this feature, why Redmi Note 5 Pro don’t.
Redmi Note 5 pro is comes with Qualcomm snapdragon 636 chipset and this chipset doesn’t support the latest Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0 technology. It means if you want to charge your phone 100% then you have to put your phone on charging and forget it for 3 hours. Nowadays most of the smartphone comes with latest USB c-type but Xiaomi is still stick to micro USB type.
Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with a Hybrid SIM Slot. Hybrid slots only allow either two sim cards or one sim card and a MicroSD card. So, this means if you are a Redmi Note 5 Pro users and have two sim cards, later down the road when you run out of storage you will be out of luck. You will either have to sacrifice your important files or you will have to let go of the other SIM card.
The display on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is just simply not up to the mark. The 18:9 display surely look modern and catches attention. However, the display is not bright enough at outdoor conditions and the colours are not punchy enough. In simple terms, the display on the Redmi Note 5 Pro is not as bad as the Redmi Note 3 but at the same time, it is not as good as the Xiaomi Mi A1.
