  • I don't believe it. It is very good

    Camera performance is excellent in day or night according to the price. I thing the camera performance as good as Oppo F5. I had Redmi note 3 pro which is used Snapdragon 650. So, i thing the performance of Snapdragon 450 same as 650, but longer battery life. I don't believe that HD+ in this phone as good as FHD, oh it's very good

  • This phone has a good camera especially in front .. takes pictures night and day. Not for selfie..

    This phone has a good camera especially in front camera...takes grainy pictures night and day. Not for selfies also video shooting is not good because it has the recurrent focusing issue. No dedicated microSD slot. And Redmi 5 only has 2.4Ghz wifi. Quite nice phone but It should be fast charging .. Type C port !!

  • Beast!

    l have been into Xiaomi since the days of Xiaomi 3....the Redmi 5 is absolutely
    revolutionary...everything feels different..is different and gives an awesome smartphone
    experience..Snapdragon 450 in my opinion is better than Snapdragon 625...why do l say that? Because l have had the Note 4...by the way the Mediatek processor outperformed the 625 in the Note 4.The redmi 5 has no flaws...l am already on UIMI 9.3 lts the best phone in its class by far....

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
