Description

Xiaomi has revamped the design of the Redmi range with the new Redmi 5 Plus and its younger brother the Redmi 5. We see a screen almost 6" in size with designs similar to the Redmi Note 5 models. The usable area is 77%, a significant improvement on the 72% found on the previous Redmi Note 4 models. Xiaomi has opted for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor for this handset, and although it is not the most powerful (with an Antutu score of around 77,000 points on version 7), the processor has more than enough power for daily use and limited battery consumption.

The 4000 mAh battery won't leave us high and dry thanks to the processor and the well optimized MIUI. We are assured of good battery life with this handset.

Connectivity has its pros and cons, given that we have a Global version, that supports more bands than the Chinese version, which also comes without pre-installed Google services, take care, shop could sell it without Google services.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus is not a mobile conceived for photography lovers, given that its Omnivision OV12A10 sensor, as used previously by Xiaomi in the Xiaomi Mi A1, is a basic sensor that will work fine with enought light, but with a lot of problems on dark scenes. In reality, it is a sensor in keeping with the price of the handset, which is very competitive, making it one of the best options in terms of value for money that you can find on the market.

Finding the best price for the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus is no easy task. Here you will find where to buy the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus at the best price. Prices are continuously tracked in over 140 stores so that you can find a reputable dealer with the best price

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.
