This is one of the most powerful mid-range devices around. Between the Snapdragon 636 chipset, the fresh design ID and the absolutely fantastic battery life, the phone delivers the goods.

If you’re looking for an affordable smartphone with a good set of cameras and powerful innards, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is one of the top options on the table.

I assumed it was just another Chinese device with a tall display. After switching it on and then trying that camera, that impression quickly wore off as it was clear that Xiaomi is not just back in the game, but wants to be at the very top.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro has a lot more points in its favour, including the better processor, improved camera with newer features and yes that big display.

The company has managed to once again set the bar even higher. The Redmi Note 5 Pro stands true to its ‘Pro’ moniker and excels in almost every aspect, including camera performance which has usually been a sore point for Xiaomi devices.
