Xiaomi Redmi Note Review
Xiaomi has always managed to move into middle waters of Android, sites where raw material price/quality ratio providing also some extra plus as the quality of its construction. In this category we find practically all its terminals Redmi and also this Xiaomi Redmi Pro, the first bet on the double rear camera brand.
Today you lie down on our table of operations to undergo one of our analysis. Open Xiaomi Redmi Pro to see what we offer and how does. A device with makings of super premium mid-range, although perhaps to stay slightly below this category. But if all this we add its price, it becomes considerably more attractive. Let’s start.
As said, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro is a range media quite classical in which not found features that us remove the breath more beyond of the mounting of the double sensor rear, of 13 and 5 megapixel, for to play with the blur. The presence of the helium X 25 defines in some measure the intentions of Xiaomi, trying to of place it slightly above them lines with the X 20 or with chips of Qualcomm less powerful. The most surprising of these specifications is no doubt battery. We started to get used to terminals of 5.5 inch mounted not more than 3,000 or 3300 mAh battery and now have us Xiaomi Redmi Pro with its 4.050 mAh with fast charge Pump Xpress. It is not gold that glitters, however, and as we will see later when we touch the autonomy, the set of the equipment does not help enough energy-saving and to appreciate those mAh in all its glory. We go with the design.
The problem of the current mobile phone is that you simply take a look at the inside of a smartphone to have the feeling we have seen them all. The terminals are different in the software and in the exterior design, but its components are common to many others and with this Xiaomi Redmi Pro there are no surprises.
Xiaomi us happens in these moments as happened with the Samsung of some years ago, and even the Koreans have not yet to completely remove the Vice. Seen a Xiaomi, seen all. Although everyone with their small differences beyond the size but maybe without stress with spectacular bodies. It seems that Xiaomi only puts meat on the grill when it’s their top of the range, and the rest will be inheriting what comes from above.
By turning the terminal can be seen the back cover in greater detail. Our particular model is silver and in its construction, we look at a back of brushed metal that however it is completely smooth to the touch. We cannot say to be inefficient because hidden pretty well our footprints and seems to be always pristine. Point for the manufacturer in this case.
The rear is quite classic, with the dual camera in the top, forming in a vertical position with the flash in the center of both of these objectives, and the rest of the device completely clean except for Xiaomi logo at the bottom. The truth is that Xiaomi can do smart terminals and Redmi Pro is a pity that the magic is lost in part when we turn the terminal.
We have in hands a terminal of silver color that however has completely white front, a fad is the bi-color phones that should certainly have its public but we just do not convince all. The front of the terminal appears touchscreen completely centered and with a top frame that has only a speaker and front camera.
We have buttons haptic Xiaomi Redmi Pro by what its front is not limited to providing the Home button to return to the home or authenticate us to every request for additional security. Thus we will have the entire surface of the screen for the menus and applications, and can manage from the bottom frame with total comfort and a response in the form of vibration which, if we wish, we can disconnect.

The left side is only completely clean with tray for the SIM and microSD, hidden with the “famous skewer that is always lost” system since are facing a terminal unibody, without the possibility of removing the battery or removing the back cover.
