Redmi Note 5 Pro review – Awesome handset that you can recommend to anyone

Along with the Redmi Note 5, Xiaomi also launched the Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. I call this the Made for Everyone handset, why? read this Redmi Note 5 Pro review to know more. This handset comes with dual cameras on the back and houses a 4000 mAh non-removable battery.

Overall performance is great, this Redmi Note 5 Pro in fact is using the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa core processor with Adreno 509 GPU. The hardware is powerful, hardly heats up and the 4000 mAh battery works in perfect combination – giving you performance with mileage.

There are dual cameras of 12MP + 5MP on the rear and they capture pretty impressive shots, front camera is 20MP and that too does a really good job, in fact as good as the dual cameras when it comes to bokeh effects.

Redmi Note 5 Pro Camera  Review

Rear Camera : 12MP (f/2.2)+5MP(f/2.0), auto focus, LED flash
Front Camera : 20MP, IMX376 SONY sensor
Video Recording : FHD resolution, with image stabilization

Camera quality is excellent, natural shots and the bokeh effects is just about perfect. When using dual cameras the edge detection is pretty good and in fact even the front camera can shoot really good bokeh selfies.

The FHD video recording quality is perfect, but what impressed me was the image stabilization, check the video review to see that in action.

Camera Rating : 4.4 out of 5
