LMAO Xiaomi still in bed with SD625..
Frankly, the 626 is just an overclocked version of the 625. This makes the former around 10 percent more powerful than the latter.

Apart from this, the only thing that Qualcomm has changed is the Bluetooth version. The Snapdragon 626 supports Bluetooth v4.2, while its predecessor is locked out at Bluetooth v4.1. And this concludes the difference between them.


He's got a point,they can still put on a latest version of SD625,may be like a SD626 or something which Qualcomm has improved over SD625 and has pushed as a next iteration for 625,but Xiaomi doesn't want to experiment which isn't great IMO :/
They have pushed SD625 in almost all of it's devices last year,so making one more SD625 is just sad
Yes, they might have....

But the title also says Redmi 5 Note Pro.... which has SD636 which is the latest in this segment released in Q3 2017: Bluetooth 5, NFC, 802.11ac Wi-Fi up to 433 Mbit/s, USB 3.1 : X12 LTE (downlink: Cat 12, up to 600 Mbit/s; uplink: Cat 13, up to 150 Mbit/s) : Adreno 509 (FHD+ (18:9)) : 14 nm LPP

So it is unfair to criticise Xiaomi even when they are bringing latest technology at budget prices.....


Yea,but if you compare Note 4 and Note 5 there's no change except for the Display,tbh Note 3 is a better device than Note 4
I'm not pro criticism right now,I still think they make some awesome devices,but I think they are playing it safely ,
I mean SD650 in Note 3 is better than Note 4 and Note 5,I mean like seriously come on :confused:
And yea all the processors do the job,but come on you gotta have some edge when you're launching products as a firm and as a customer who likes smartphones


just curious. do these phones have snapdragon processors in chinese market? from my understanding they are forced to use qualcomm here in india because of some legal reasons? but in china they prefer to use mediatek based processors? do those phones get newer generation of mediatek processors?
