Display is the major highlight of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. This is the first time that the company has included a full-screen display in a Note series smartphone. The smartphone packs a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 1080×2160 pixel resolution. The 2.5D curved glass display is coated with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top which protects it from damage and scratches.
The device offers similar camera specifications as the Redmi Note 4. The smartphone sports a 12MP rear camera with dual tone LED flash and a 5MP front shooter with Selfie Light.
However, the company has altered a few things in the camera department. The rear camera of the Redmi Note 5 features a 12MP shooter with larger pixel size of 1.25um pixels and f/2.2 aperture. In proper light or daylight, the handset managed to deliver some great shots. Moreover, the images captured in macro mode also turned out be good with apt colour reproduction and detailing.
