Xiaomi has launched their new Note series smartphone called Note 5. It is the successor of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. But the main attention of the event was Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. Redmi Note 5 pro is the bigger brother of Redmi Note 5. In this price, Xiaomi Redmi note 5 is one of the best phones on the market. But everyone knows that nothing is perfect. well, this phone has some drawbacks which can make some reasons not to buy Xiaomi Redmi note 5 Pro. In this article, we will discuss that

  1. Micro USB Port

    USB type C is not future anymore it’s now but Xiaomi skipping this port. Most of the phones in this price range have USB Type C. I hope next time Xiaomi will add this port on their device. By adding port Type-C ports can transfer data at speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second.

  2. NFC – Missing

    NFC is not necessary for now but a competitor like Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 giving NFC. With NFC you can pair with any NFC supported device. Or you can use NFC for payment. It would be a nice if Xiaomi added this sensor with the device. That’s how Xiaomi has made another reason not to buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro.

  3. Price Hike

    After Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 launch many people thought that Xiaomi will decrease the price of this device. But unfortunately hiked the price of this device. And by doing this they have decreased some points from the value for money category

  4. Not the fastest Fast Charging

    I know that this device supports Quick Charging 2.0 but it is not the fastest Quick Charge. This is not a big deal but as this device has a massive 4000mAh, it will take a long time to charge. That’s why QC 3 would be great for this device.

  5. True Dual 4G VoLTE missing

    When two SIM cards are used simultaneously, the primary SIM supports
    4G+/4G/3G/2G calling and data while the secondary SIM supports only 3G calls. A competitor like Asus giving this option in a 10,999 INR device.


These are the top 5 reasons not to buy this Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. But still, in my opinion, this device is one of the best devices under 15000 INR budget. Also, there are few other devices available in this budget to take a look.
