Redmi Note 5 Performance – Snapdragon 630
Sticking to A53 cores for efficiency, however, clocks now up to 2.3GHz compared to Snapdragon 626 2.2GHz. If this doesn’t tingle your performance bones the biggest upgrade comes with the graphics performance. With Adreno 508 delivering up to 25% better performance than Snapdragon 626’s Adreno 506. Most noteworthy, however, are the flagship features 630 bears like Quick Charge 4.0, Bluetooth 5 and USB-C 3.1! In addition Spectra 160 ISP promises better photo quality, especially in low-light situations. Other noteworthy features are X-12 Modem and dual-channel DDR4X RAM.
Redmi Note 5 Display and Features
Sticking to favourite specs like 5.5-inches 1080p display is a sign for the better. Increasing sunlight visibility and the contrast ratio is better than higher resolution. More pixels only drain more battery and decrease performance. Xiaomi Redmi Note fans love these dimensions and also love fingerprints! Luckily the new Redmi Note has a capacitive front fingerprint scanner like Snapdragon 835 powered Xiaomi Mi6! Fast, accurate and comfortable to use.
Redmi Note 5 Camera and Battery Life
Having a high mountain to climb considering Redmi Note 4X‘s great camera and endurance is 5 better than 4X? First of all, a much better Front camera is now present. Selfie lovers will be pleased with the 13MP f/2.0 Sony camera. Compared to 4X, Note 5 now bring 16MP Sony Exmor f/2.0 sensor to play with. Surely 4K resolution and better low-light performance are implied.
Regarding battery life, things are a bit tricky. Trying to stay thin at 7.5mm we get a slightly smaller 3790mAh unit. Both SD625 and 630 are 14nm chips, but with a better modem, we could be seeing great battery life, even if 5-10% less than Redmi Note 4X. However, we will get faster charging to compensate, a fair trade-off.
