2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good build quality, and design, with nice curved edges
  • Decent fingerprint sensor (not the fastest, but accurate enough)
  • Decent display - good viewing angles, vibrant color output, and the sunlight visibility is also good
  • Runs almost stock Android UI keeping things nice and simple
  • Decent day-to-day performance
  • Decent call quality
  • Massive 4, 850mAh battery - easily lasts for a day and half even with high usage
  • Good looks with a solid build, plastic unibody design, and a compact feel
  • The gentle curves at the edges are a nice upgrade over the Redmi 4A which was more square-ish
  • Additionally, the company has taken user feedback and gone with a non-hybrid SIM tray design - there are separate slots for a microSD card and both SIMs, therefore not forcing users to have to forego one or the other
  • Good display for the price
  • MIUI continues to be one of the more well designed Android UIs - it's clean, efficient and has a number of useful add-on apps like Mi Drop, Mi Security (lets you set passcodes on individual apps, set up dual apps or a second space on the device, block SMS senders and more), and Mi Remote
  • Decent performance in daily use
  • Acceptable cameras given the price point - take good shots in good light, and single-tone LED flash at the back will help you get a little more visibility in low light conditions
  • Decent battery life - with the low power usage of the Snapdragon 425 and the frugal HD screen, you can easily get a full day’s use out of the smartphone before needing to charge
  • Overall it's a decent upgrade over the Redmi 4A, and the small changes will help in keeping the phone current - and offer very good value to users looking for a nice entry-level smartphone
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The back of the phone is pretty slippery, so a case is a must to handle the phone daily
  • Display resolution could have been better
  • While performance is decent in daily/basic use, it tends to lag when pushed, and is a step behind the top competitors in this price bracket
  • The processor also tends to heat up quickly when pushed
  • Average rear dual cameras - daylight and macro photos looked a bit washed out and do not bring out enough color - autofocus time is on the slow side too - and the bokeh effect for portraits is very ordinary too
  • Average front camera too
  • No support for fast charging - takes about 3 hours to charge the phone fully
  • Performance is only good for basic use - you will of course need better specs (and a more expensive phone) if you intend to use heavy apps, or play a lot of games
  • Camera quality is basic too - again as would be expected at this price point
  • No fast charging support
