The pro ver I think if around $350 should be worth the buck.
Hmm $350 or around that price range is not convincing for me. I can get an honor 7x, which i feel is a better phone or even a used oneplus 5 i guess

depends if u value performance highly. u are paying 350$ for something with an equivalent of a sd 625 and worse battery life.

The phone doesn't have NFC though.

Probably getting it for my dad. The old Xperia Z2 is getting slow and the battery cmi.

It's subjective.. I don't see honor 7x a better phone with slower processor, GPU and smaller battery.

The honor 7X probably wins on the design and the camera, but the Redmi Note 5 Pro wins on the other aspects such as battery life and processor performance.

If only the battery can stretch to 5k range similar to current Mi Max 2 then it would be a match made in heaven.

Redmi Note 5 Pro (Redmi Note 5) is here!


First phone to come with the advanced Snapdragon 636



The Redmi Note 5 Pro should be a good indication of the specs of the upcoming Mi Max 3, judging the past 2 iterations of Mi Max having similar specs to the Redmi Note line.

wait for the full reviews to be out first before judging this actually.

The initial pictures looks quite impressive on this rn5p

Rear is a combination of Sony (12MP)+Samsung (5MP), while front is a Sony (20MP).

Even though it's a Sony sensor, it also highly depends on the algorithm that Xiaomi has tuned for it. If the algorithm is average, it will only achieve average results even if it's using a high-quality camera sensor.

The same old shˇt by Huawei..

It's a common thing for them to do in China, especially when Xiaomi launch a certain product that threatens their product. They were widely condemned when it was exposed, and recently they were exposed to getting fake 5 star reviews in USA too..
