Redmi Note 5 or Redmi 5 Plus, different country different name.  So whatever the name is doesn’t matter. What matters is what this phone offers? It features a 5.99 inches full HD display with 77.4% screen to body ratio. Higher will be the screen to body ratio thinner will be bezels. Thus the phone will look more attractive and compact without reducing the display size. Anyways, moving further, Redmi 5 Plus is equipped with Snapdragon 625 processor with Adreno 506 GPU.

4. Vivo Y71

Vivo Y71 is a bit overpriced seeing the market scenario right now. It features a 6 inches HD display and runs on FunTouch 4.0 OS based on Android Oreo 8.1. But the only thing that I don’t like about this phone is its processor. It has got 3 GB RAM and 16/32 GB inbuilt storage capacity and Snapdragon 425 processor. The processor doesn’t seem to fit here. Although the multitasking was smooth when compared head to head with other phones of the same price, you will notice the difference in the performance. That’s why the phone is a bit overpriced.

The few reasons I have listed this phone here is because of the dedicated card slot, gyroscope sensor, and good camera. As far as the camera is concerned, it has 13 MP on the rear side and 5 MP on the front side. It packs 3360 mAh battery which is kind of good or bad. Battery drains to zero by night but on the other hand by using a smaller battery pack, Vivo manages to keep the phone weight under 150 grams. Vivo Y71 has its pros and cons. You can buy this one if pros match your requirement and disadvantages doesn’t bother you much. It could be a value for money phone if Vivo drops the price a bit.
