So, review Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 4/64 Black.
Two days ago, purchased this unit, model MEE7S (China) with firmware Global Stable (which is updated when you first turn on the OTA to the latest version 17).Equipment
Standard pleases presence of cover, which, though thin and can be easily removed, but nevertheless help save the presentation as long as a normal case does not come from China.Appearance and size
For those who are accustomed to the 5.5-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 16: 9 as I'm used to the past XRN4, В«five" does not seem large, because of the dimensions it is just a tiny little bit of authenticity. At the same time, it is for a woman's hand, is likely to be too big.
Exterior front view - a standard for Xiaomi, behind - the standard for IPhone X. All buttons and jacks on the usual places, the fingerprint scanner on the back side is conveniently falls under the index finger. Personally, I do not like the bulging rear camera, because it is inconvenient to use a smartphone when it is lying on a table or other flat surface. Cover partially smoothes protruding island, but not completely. Plastic inserts on top and bottom, oddly enough, in the eyes do not catch the color is almost the same. Prints the rear wall collect, but they are easily erased.Screen
Screen size - 5 plus. Use a diagonal unrealistic convenient, especially if you read or watch videos. Color rendition - 4, in many places, the colors seem slightly palely. Minimum brightness - 5, it is possible even in complete darkness is something to read,without fear of disturbing light sleeping next to his wife
. The maximum brightness - also 5, the sun relatively readable.
But at the same time, if you make the brightness slightly less than the maximum, I personally use it for a day is not enough, according to the brightness slider I travels all the time between the two extreme positions. Auto Brightness can not stand.
By the way, an excellent oleophobic coating, fingerprints are deleted immediately.Sound
Sound wired headphones not tested due to the lack thereof, sound BT-headset is much more pleasant and clear than on RN4. Same with the sound of multimedia speaker, and he is also very loud. At work, most usually turn down the volume, and if it does not interfere with anyone on the RN4, it is necessary to include in the RN5 silent, because even the minimum level for the office gromkovat.Performance
I am one of those people that if they play games on your phone, it is only in the puzzle / nastolki / 2D-arcade, so to fully appreciate the power of the Snapdragon 636, I can not. But with daily tasks taking into account the 4 GB of RAM (always freely around 2 GB) Smartphone handles flawlessly, friezes and lag is not noticed. We were pleased with fast internal storage, applications, and updates to them shall be established immediately.Cameras
The front camera compared to frontalkoy XRN4, excellent bokeh effect draws enough quality, the presence of frontal flash too happy.
The rear camera shoots at approximately the same level as the XRN4, and compared with the Leica on the Huawei P10 wife nervously smokes on the sidelines. But if you are an adequate person, and did not intend to shoot fotoshedevry phone for TR 14, the chamber fotochek at Instagram will be enough. In portrait mode, the focus of the object boundary is defined quite clearly and precisely blurs everything.
Very pleased with video stabilization. Although it is not an optical and electronic, but very smoothes shaking when shooting video on the go. On the RN4 to watch video captured on the go, it is simply unrealistic.Wireless interfaces
Everything works flawlessly even have nothing to say. Who needs NFC - look in the direction of Honor / Huawei. I'm not too lazy to get a contactless card payment Pyaterochka.
In the future, I plan to set up support aptX, because suitable for headphones of this is.UPD: I noticedproblem with the BT-earsWhile single, I'll follow.
With GPS also did not have any problems finding the location quickly and accurately enough, the route is no problem, the bushes are not going away.Interface
I am glad availability of Android 8.1, as well as new smartphone, there is every reason to believe that it will be updated again.
And MIUI - he and MIUI Africa. For 1/3 people, it is good for the other 1/3 of the people, it is disgusting, and the third for 1/3 people, it does not differ from the other shells, and I belong to the last third.
Very pleasant gesture commands, the ability to hide the hated buttons, bite off part of the screen, please.
fingerprint scanner is many times better than on RN4, but unlocking the face just struck by the fact that it really plow! And when I'm in sunglasses! And in the twilight in a room without light! And even if you hold the phone upside down! The downside: I think to cheat by using a photo of him would be easy. On the other hand, I personally easier to directly touch the scanner with your finger, you turn on the screen and bring it to his face, so this feature for me - more pampering.Battery
Again, compared with eighteen months XRN4 on Mediatek autonomy "five" fantastic. Analyst with screen work hours cause I'm lazy, and at all different usage scenarios, but I can say that when I am in the morning to come to work, my "four" was about 60%, and "five" with all the same actions - about 90%.Total
For the money, for which you can buy a gray 4/64
without Band 20
and with Band 20 (which is 13-14 TR) smartphone just bombichesky, and competitors it, IMHO, not even close.
If we look for competitors in the retail price of the official, it comes out:
1. Huawei / Honor multitude with the NFC, a very pleasant EMUI, good camera, but wildly bored Kirin 659, they shoved all the smarts to 20 TR
2. ASUS Zenfone Max Pro M1, again with the NFC and the same 636 dragon, but with a worse camera, "bare" android (do not know, is a big plus or minus) and a large number of bugs (judging by what I read in forum discussions, when considering it as an option)
3. Other Chinese and budgetary hated me gnusmas.UPD 1
: About the durability of the case: after two weeks from the date of purchase, is already on the back near the bottom of a plastic insert fine scratches that at a certain angle can be clearly seen. And this despite the fact that a complete cover I shot 3 times during this period, probably hit small particles.
The same with the vaunted Gorilla Glass - glass on top of the frame, near several small frontalki tsarapok. A trifle, but still unpleasant.Post has been editedohshha - 27.07.18, 20:51
