Quite confuse with the new 5 series. Does redmi 5 plus same or different from redmi note 5?
The Redmi 5 Plus is just a bigger version of the regular Redmi 5.

The Redmi Note 5 is rumored to be coming in 2018 instead.

Eh, you can't really say the SD625 is a downgrade from SD650. The SD625 is built on a 14nm architecture, which brings about better efficiency and performance and it cost way more than the SD650 built on the older 28nm architecture.

The SD650 successor is the SD660, and the cost price of the SD660 is more expensive than the SD650 due to the 14nm built mainly.
performance of sd650 is way better than the 625. the only advantage the note 4/x has over the note 3 is maybe 20% longer battery life.

the problem with the note 3 is the dying software support.

Xiaomi officially unveils full-screen Redmi 5 phones for the budget-conscious

Xiaomi has announced the latest additions to its Redmi range, the Redmi 5 and 5 Plus. Both phones boast an oh so 2017 18:9, pretty much bezel-free display, with rounded corners and an aluminium unibody. The lower end Redmi 5 runs on a Snapdragon 450 processor, while the 5 Plus gets a Snapdragon 625 and a Full-HD+ screen. It’s a single camera setup on both handsets, which you’d expect for the price (we’ll get to that in a second), but power users and YouTube addicts alike will be delighted with the Plus’ whopping 4000mAh battery. The entry level Redmi 5 starts at 799 yuan (around S$165), while a 3GB/32GB 5 Plus will cost you 999 yuan (around S$210). It goes without saying that both are very much in the affordable bracket, but right now there are no plans to launch outside China. Here’s hoping.

The 5.7" 18:9 display will be the new 5.2" 16:9 display from now onwards.

If you're referring to the Redmi 5 Plus, it costs RMB 999 for the 32GB version

So far xiaomi hasn't release their next big "hit" for the redmi series.

Hope redmi note 5 would be good.

Why the battery is not removable these days? We know that battery is one of the common failure modes, and only give 6 months warranty period.

Because metal body and glass body are the common design for smartphone nowadays..
