Specification, features of Redmi Note 5 Pro
The slim bezels also makes the device sport a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display and occupy a smaller footprint when in the palm.
The display of Note 5 Pro was bright and punchy with good sunlight legibility.
A 20MP selfie camera with an aperture of f/2.2, selfie light flash, face-recognition feature and other sensors and earpiece are placed above the display, while on-screen navigation buttons sit below.
The front camera did a good job of clicking selfies with enough detail in daylight conditions. The selfie light it uses is essentially diffused white light, which also helped capture selfies in very low-light conditions.
The metal rear with matte finish makes it look like the Redmi Note 4. The slightly curved back metal body is done in typical Xiaomi style.
The fingerprint sensor was comfortable to use while holding the phone and authentication was fast.
The design language of the rear camera, with 12MP+5MP sensors, has been borrowed from the Apple iPhone X.
The primary camera is pretty capable and we shot some stunning images with the device in daylight conditions. The dual camera is one of the biggest USPs of this smartphone.
A hefty 4,000mAh battery fuels Redmi Note 5 Pro that easily lasted us almost two days, with moderate to slightly heavy usage, including browsing videos and running multiple social media apps.
The 4GB RAM variant did not show signs of warming albeit for a few gaming instances.
