As compared to its predecessor, Xiaomi has improved Redmi Note 5 Pro’s camera. Though, improved doesn’t mean upgraded. The camera looks like an iPhone (vertically placed) but works like a Xiaomi.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Performance

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is powered by Qualcomm SDM636 Snapdragon 636 Chipset (runs Company’s custom Kryo cores, eight of them) coupled with a whopping 6GB of RAM. The Adreno 509 manages a graphical department, though. The result? The device is noticeably faster and smooth as compared to Redmi Note 5, as long as both are compared side-by-side.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Storage and OS

Either you go for 4GB of RAM or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of onboard memory remains the same. It’s considered enough for those who don’t install an ample amount of data. But isn’t it a bit scary for those looking for more? Of course, not! The Redmi Note 5 Pro enables users to increase its onboard memory further up to 256GB via microSD card (Yahoo!).

As far as its software factor is concerned, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro runs on outdated Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Either it’s upgradable to Android P 9.0 or not, it’s something we don’t know about.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Battery

Just like other Xiaomi devices, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro lands with impressive 4000mAh battery life. The battery lasts 14 hours if you’re a moderate user – without any fail. That, with 10 odd calls, a bunch of text messages, some 15 shots using the camera and numerous IMs. However, if you’re a heavy user, a full charge every night is all you will need then.
