    That boring backside..

    • plåtburk

      Yeah I mean, who cares about the frontside and it’s screen. All that matters is that sweet backside, so much to view and do with it! /sarcasm

      But you have a point, they could have done more to it. But maybe there will come out some nice cases and skins for it eventually.

      • Ulics Tibor

        Honestly, all phones has the same front nowdays. LG G6 look. The only thing where you can change and can look good it is the backside which is the same about 2 years ago..

        • plåtburk

          Understandable, however don’t see much use or need for a “nice” back if the overall phone isn’t good. Plus many use cases for protect so the back is covered.

          • Ulics Tibor

            It is the part of the overall look. Also, they need some kind of refreshing from this boring design. It feels outdated. 🙂
            I know that we see only the front in 90%, but still, the back is the only difference, so it would be good to see some uniqe there. Look at the Honor phones, they have awesome look on the back too, or the Nubias. They are sexy af.

      and old CPU for plus version

    • Ad Krishna

      Yes. Plastic caps on top and bottom is really annoying.

    Any info on Redmi Note 5? Do you think Redmi 5 Plus will replace Note 5?

    • Muhammad Yasir

      if they ditch the redmi note, they can say goodbye to the market !

      • Tules Kousaki

        I Agree 100% …that’s the only thing i’m waiting to see, if it’s worth to replace my Note 4x or not..if they insist on the same processor, i’m out.

        • Muhammad Yasir

          the SD 625 is washed out and i think now it’s just an appeasing ritual, like Xiaomi are licking Qualcomm’s boots for some Godforsaken reason !

          i hope they run out of their residual SD 625 stock soon !

    • Barry Scott

      i wouldnt expect too much from the redmi note 5, if we look at the price structure of these 2 phones & the Mi A1, its hard to see where the note 5 will fit in, and if they do fit it in whats it going to be like?

      • Tules Kousaki

        Good point…. And troubling one. 🤔

  • Muhammad Yasir

    STOP USING THE 625 ALREADY GODDAMIT !

    USE SD 630 instead !

    and PLEASE , make the Redmi note 5 a SUPER PHONE !

    • Grega

      Yes. Of course. Because Redmi line was always intended for prime super flagships! /note the sarcasm/

      • Muhammad Yasir

        go to hell !

        idgaf what you think but the SD 625 is just overhyped crap !

        Redmi line up was ALWAYS known for puncing ABOVE it’s weight ! (it launched the redmi with helio x10 when the helio’s were a BIG hype !)

        we need BETTER SOCs for these phones !

  • Barry Scott

    Anyone else feel totally underwhelmed? these are, to be frank, a pretty big let down. Its as if they have just taken the Redmi Note 4 leftovers & created these with a new design? about a month ago i was in the market for a new phone, i was looking at the Meizu M6 Note but decided to wait & see what Xiaomi would come up with… Wish id just got the M6 note now & not wasted a month waiting for these

    • flipp0

      I think we need to lower our expectations. Redmi Note 3 (SD) was a fantastic budget phone when it was released .The succesor Redmi Note 4 (SD) was great but only a incremental update over Note 3. Redmi 5 Plus and/or Redmi Note 5 will probably bring some small improvments over Note 4 but it will not be a game changer like Note 3. Xiaomi is probably going after profit now, It is not possible to release super affordable high quality phones year after year and still make profits. Look at Leeco.

      • Barry Scott

        i think xiaomi are going backwards tbh, profits & sales may be going up but i think the devices are stagnating at the minute, i think next years releases will tell us where they are heading, as for the Redmi 5 & 5 Plus, i cant see them catching on for a few reasons

        • Flipp0

          I agree on a personal level but not from an outside perspective. Reduced bezels and 18:9 will be enough for most people. Customer want some novelty but they also want familiarity. Most phones from Oppo looks the same, they still sell like hot cakes. Most consumers are not tech geeks, they do not care about specifications and a creative design that much. That’s why Oppo who sell tons of mediocre midrangers.

          • Barry Scott

            yeah i agree, i think we can kiss goodbye to any interesting xiaomi devices in the future, i think the days of a pleasant surprise from them are long gone
