It’s high time folks avoid these Chinese OWNED company phones and network. HUAWEI and ZTE have been shown doors by both Australia and us . Airtel and bsnl has high ZTE and huwaie network contribution. These company provide full access to PLA of China to monitor global trend bases their user using handset and networks. All cloud based advance switches are storing data in China data centre. Mi , huwaie , Ali Baba , ZTE have only data centre in China and no other places … Even Ali Baba is planning to enter India to set up cloud business like… Read more »




Please need A fair suggestion between Redmi note 5 & Oppo Realme 1 g and other phone in 9000 -11000 in term of processor, camera, network etc?

I’m close to noob thus asking, No favorable preference please also how realmi 1 (3 GB) performs, no fingerprint & about sensors or any other thing?


Go for Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1… It’s great phone… Pure Android/stable experience, Dual VoLTE, great network reception etc., but only disadvantage is poor front/selfie camera (but back camera is good) and need for high quality tempered glass (no gorilla glass). Asus is a good brand and makes quality products. But M1 Pro is very hard to get due to it’s flash sales.

2nd best option would be Redmi Note 5… Good hardware overall, but unreliable/buggy software experience – it’s MIUI UI/OS.

Oppo Releame is a decent phone, but is average overall and does not excel in anything particular.

Hope the above helps.


Thats Asus phone was displayed better on papers & YouTube videos but i don’t think it is upto that mark promised,
A friend of mine has it & it has slow fingerprint + some other problems.

Only problem it has it takes lot of time to charge and doesn’t have support for band 41.

Redmi Note 5 is close to extinct since it doesn’t support dual 4G LTE which means you can’t use 4G on Airtel/Idea/Voda and still use JIO. You can only use JIO 4G and any other network on 3G and 2G. I love MiUI, but don’t buy this if you’re not an older person who only sticks to old networks and doesn’t care much about VoLTE stuff. Asus Zenfone Max Pro is also a great device which excels at gaming and battery under the 14k price point. Realme is the best device under 14,000rs for most users. The only issue is… Read more »


REALME 1, i can give up fingerprint over face unlock + pin in night hours. But it lacks Notification light, Does Note 5 has Notification light?

Also about the complicated Color OS features Is it same across all Oppo device? Maybe apps notification thing could sort out in Future OS update?

Oppo Realme 1 if you need power on your phone.Redmi Note 5 if you need battery on your phone. But I seeiouslg think you should but Fermi Note 4 instead of Redmi Note 5. Go for OppoRealme 1. Battery is solid enough which will be enough for 1 day even when you use two Jio sims or Jio+avoid 4G.Camera is same on both Redmi Note 5 and Oppo Realme1.


I don’t play games maybe someday in a week Candy crush like. WhatsApp Facebook etc. 2-3 apps
Note 4 is pretty outdated.
Only thing I’m concerned is Realme 1 lacks notification light. Does it has ambient display to know when a text or miss call came?

Nikhil Mumbai-Pune

No it doesn’t have.

Why you want to upgrade from Redmi Note 4 to Redmi Note 5?
