Redmi 5

Xiaomi has been teasing their next product launch, dubbed “Compact Powerhouse” in India. Finally they’ve launched the phone, the Redmi 5 in India.


Talking about the phone, it comes with a 5.7inch HD+ display, with Corning Gorilla glass protection. It’s a departure from the previous Redmi series of phones, as the Redmi line (Redmi 1s, 2, 3s & 4), all stood for compact form factor. And this marks a shift from that, albeit a small one.

Xiaomi has been touting this as “Compact Powerhouse“, what’s making this a compact powerhouse per se? Its the chip underneath. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 450, which is pretty powerful compared to the other phones and processors in the price range. Snapdragon 450 is really Snadragon 625 mini, it’s basically an under clocked version of the SoC. SD 625 is clocked at 2.0 GHz, while SD 450 is clocked at 1.8 GHz. Also they both feature the same GPU, Adreno 506.

So the Snapdragon 450, paired with a 720p display makes it as powerful as the Redmi Note 5, which is powered by SD 625 and has a Full HD+ display. And yes, this blows out any other device in this price segment when it comes to performance.
