I sometimes wonder, what does Xiaomi think before launching its smartphones.

Do they even have a logical discussion about the smartphone that they plan to launch?

Time and again Xiaomi have launched products that just confuse the people. And now again, with the launch of Redmi Note 5, they have done the same!

Redmi Note 5 : Why?

Back in the day, with the Redmi Note 3, Xiaomi checked all the boxes and delivered a winner.

Yes, the camera was underwhelming, but the Snapdragon 650 processor with 32/64 gb storage and 3/4 gb ram was an amazing package.

A 5.5 inch full hd display with 4000 mAh battery was the cherry on the top.

Then came the Redmi Note 4. It was only a refinement of the note 3. Nothing game-changing. Though it was a slight dissappointment, it still managed to become a best seller.

A lot was being expected of the Redmi Note 5. But once again, Xiaomi under delivered.

Same phone - different name

Yes, its practically the same redmi note 4 in a slightly different body and with a completely new name.

I wonder how they gave it a complete number upgrade in the name when its not even a Redmi Note 4s.

Lets first see what's changed.

  • New 18:9 screen
  • Slightly tweaked design.
  • Slightly better rear camera
Thats it!

Thats all whats new.

Rest of the specifications are the same. Same processor, same battery, same storage capacity, same ram....even same charging port!

Is this a blunder?

Not at all..!!!

As a matter of fact, its a great business decision.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 5 with a more expensive variant, the REDMI NOTE 5 PRO.

This pro variant has a lot more features and is a worthy successor to the Note 3 and 4. And is also more expensive.

Launching the Redmi note 5 is a brilliant move. With the note 5, they were able to achieve a low starting price. 

And since majority of the people wouldn't buy it, they will be forced to buy the expensive pro model.

So for Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 5 is a great business decision.

But for us consumers, its nothing to be excited about. 

It's a phone we neither needed nor deserved.
