Cameras are the most essential part of mobile nowadays, Dual camera phones are very common feature in smartphone.

Specially girls do prefer camera phone over a high performance device.

Redmi Note 5 – This time Camera is slightly upgraded from its previous version Redmi Note 4, camera of note 4 was below average in terms of performance, many tech reviewer criticize note 4 because of its average performance of camera but this year Xiaomi worked on its camera and launched Redmi Note 4 with a very improved camera. Its has 12MP rear camera with 1.2 micrometre pixel size, this camera can give you good photos even in low lighting condition like indoor conditions. For selfie Redmi note 5 is equipped with 5MP camera with features like beautification mode and different filters which can slightly enhance your photos but if you don’t like using beautification mode you could find this camera average.

Battery –

Redmi Note 5 – Its coming with a big battery of 4000mAh, which can give you playback time of one and half day very easily. Custom UI of Xiaomi is very optimized to give a long day usage to Redmi phones.

Lenovo S5 – Battery of Lenovo S5 is, it’s biggest highlighting feature. Lenovo S5 is coming with huge 6000mAh battery. Currently it’s a leak but you can consider it as a confirm leak. Battery of 6000mAh can easily give you playback time of more than 2 days. The UI which is coming with this phone is ZUI, its a custom UI from lenovo and it is nearly same as stock android, because of this feature the optimization of phone is great and you will get a lag free smartphone for sure.

Processor –

All the performance of a smartphone is based on it’s processor. Redmi phones always came with snapdragon processors, which is a high performing processor in demand specially in India, but if a customer purchase a smartphone in India, he give first preference to the camera of smartphone, then after the internal storage and then processor, and that’s the reason why Vivo and Oppo mobiles are so famous in india. Talking about lenovo mobiles, which sometimes come with snapdragon processor, where as sometime come with mediatek processor. Last year Lenovo launched Lenovo K8 and K8plus both the phone is equipped with mediatek processor, the launch pricing was good but the performance was not up to the mark because of the mediatek processor and as a result both the phone could not make good impact in the market, in front of there competitive like Redmi Note 4.

Redmi Note 5 – The phone have the same processor as its previous version of note, Redmi Note 5 have Snapdragon 625 powered by 2Ghz octa core processor, this processor is one of the favorite processor of Redmi phones, the performance of Snapdragon 625 is just amazing, as it can handle high end games very easily, its able to provide fluid experience to its user.

Lenovo S5 – The leaks for processor is not yet confirmed, but my suggestion to lenovo will be to use processor of snapdragon of they wanted to really compete with Redmi phones in the Indian market. If they use any mediatek processor, I don’t think they can compete with Redmi Phones, on a serious note people in India simply follow they favorite geek expert NP matter if he is saying right or wrong, gland the history says indian geeks don’t like mediatek processor. If Lenovo can use Helio X30 or higher processor then may be this phone can deliver good performance.


Operating System –

Redmi Note 5 is tuning latest version of Nougat, Android 7.1.2 and Lenovo S5 is coming with Android Oreo 8.1, the Xiaomi phones don’t got android updates for a long time but there MiUi updates brings good security patch and features, where as Lenovo phones got Android updates and ZUI, both updates time to time.

Launch Date of Lenovo S5 – The launch event of lenovo s5 is taking place on 20 march in China, so it has been assumed that within 1-2 week they will launch the smartphone in India, so you will get to see its really soon and its going to be an amazon or flipkart exclusive for sure.

Lenovo S5 Price in India – The leaked price of Lenovo S5 is 9999 rupees for 3GB+32GB varient and 11999 rupees for 4GB+64GB varient, which is very worth price and am looking forward to review it as soon as I get my hands on this beautiful upcoming smartphone from lenovo.

  My choice

So overall I will prefer to buy lenovo S5, in front of Redmi Note 5, if the final price of Lenovo S5 will be same as leaked prices.
