Xiaomi Redmi 5 Smartphone 2018 Price in Pakistan, Specs, Review
Xiaomi launched the Redmi 5 smartphone in Pakistan last month. Even though the Redmi Note 5 was not a huge upgrade, the Redmi 5 is a major upgrade compared to the Redmi 4 in terms of design and internals, but it has a slightly smaller battery and is costly compared to the predecessor. The main change in the Redmi 5 compared to the Redmi 4 is its 18:9 2.5D curved glass screen with gentle rounded corners.
It has a large 5.7-inch HD+ display with a pixel resolution of 1440 × 720 pixels and a pixel density of about 282 PPI. The display is bright, thanks to 450 nits brightness and has 1000:1 contrast ratio. Sunlight legibility is good, since it has a Sunlight display that uses hardware-level technology to adjust the contrast of each pixel in real-time, so images are less affected by glare. It has 72% of NTSC color gamut, same as the predecessor. It should have a Corning Gorilla Glass protection, but the company has not confirmed it. Even though the pixel density is less compared to the Redmi Note 5, the display is good for the price. Since this has a 18:9 aspect ratio screen, you can pinch to zoom to fill the screen when you use apps like YouTube, but the content is cropped. Several apps support full-screen, but JioTV or Airtel Live TV apps don’t support full-screen, so you get weird black bars.
Under the display options there are different options to adjust colors and contrast based on your preference. There is also reading mode that lets you reduce the display’s blue light emission so it doesn’t cause eye strain when you are reading at night. Above the display there is an earpiece along with the usual set of proximity and ambient light sensors next to it. It also has a gyroscope and a magnetic sensor, otherwise known as a magnetometer. There is also a 5-megapixel camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture along with selfie flash. There is also a notification LED next to the camera that glows in white color.
