What is not old-fashioned is the Redmi 5 Plus’s use of a rear fingerprint reader along with the edge-to-edge notch less display up front which, at first glance, makes it appear like an LG G6 or a Samsung Galaxy S8 +.
Closer inspection, but, shows that despite the nice borderless display, the Redmi 5 Plus’s display is not anywhere as impressive as the AMOLED screens we are finding on flagship phones.
That is not to state it is not a great display, but it is one of the characteristics that does make it sense less than premium.
You do get great contrast, reasonable brightness however there is a notable amount of reflection taking place, producing this a little of a destroy for use outdoors in bright sunlight.
I do such as the screen which has rounded corners and makes looking at photos, videos and eBooks and other text more smooth.
I applaud the addition of a fingerprint reader in the back, which is more natural when you are raising the phone from your pocket and can rapidly unlock it before you take the phone to your face.
