The brand new offerings from the house of Xiaomi is creating some major buzz in the market. Launched this month, the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro is being highly appreciated for what these Android phones have to offer with a wide array of features.
Both the phones pack some serious punch when it comes to software with 4GB RAM and best-in-class Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. The design of the phones is simply gorgeous with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a screen resolution of 1080x2160 pixels.
If you are a proud owner of any of these phones, here's a list of some super important gadgets and accessories that you must try with you Redmi Note 5 or Note 5 Pro.
A micro USB port on a 2018 smartphone is a bit disappointing. The Type-C port has become the standard all around the world.
However, the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro come with the Quick Charge 2.0 technology that saves some time. With the Aukey Quick Charge 2.0 Wall Charger, you can recharge your Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro. Along with Quick Charge 2.0, this wall charger claims to work 75% faster than other standard chargers.
To maintain its grand design, protect the phone in case of sudden drops and even out the camera bump at the back, it's imperative that you get a decent case for your Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro as soon as you get your hands on either of them.
Xiaomi offers its own hard case for the Redmi Note 5 Pro. At just 8-mm, this thin case protects your phone while preserving its beauty. It's environment-friendly and resistant to stain, water, and drops.
Note: This case is out of stock as at the moment due to high demand. You can also order it from Amazon.
3. Portronics POR-695 Power Bank
Although both the phones come with a 4,000mAh battery unit, it's quite possible to run low on juice in this era of power-hogging mobile apps and functionalities.
To avoid getting stuck with a dead phone, we suggest you keep a quality power bank handy. The Portronics POR-695 Power Bank offers you 20,000mAh of battery backup with dual USB output, which is enough to see you through three to four days at a stretch in case of regular usage.
A great phone is incomplete without a good headphone. Sadly, the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 do not come with headphones. Hence, you have to spend a few extra bucks and get a worthy headphone with your brand new Xiaomi phone.
JBL's T110 In-Ear Headphones would be a perfect match to the Redmi Note 5 and Pro. This amazing headphone comes with the much-needed microphone and offers a holistic audio experience with great bass range and a button for controlling playback and calls.
Both the devices come with an internal storage of 64GB and it's expandable up to 256GB via microSD card. However, the SIM slot only allows either a SIM+SIM or a SIM+microSD combination.
It's not possible to use two SIM cards and have an external storage option at the same time. But, luckily, the devices come with USB OTG (on-the-go) support, which lets the users attach a micro-USB OTG adapter and use a microSD card as an external storage option while keeping two SIM cards.
iKross has a neat multi-function micro-USB OTG adapter, which has four memory card slots — SD, MicroSD, MS, and M2. It supports all phones running Android 4.0 and above.
Every car owner must have a decent car charger. The new Redmi phones, although powerful in terms of battery, may also lose power if you're on a long drive and need to use GPS.
In such cases, a handy car charger like the iVoltaa Dual Port Car Charger comes to the rescue. This 3.4A car charger has two USB ports and comes with a microUSB cable that you can use to charge your phones on the go.
With intelli-charge technology, this car charger outputs the optimal energy level for safe charging according to the connected device.
In this age of rapidly improving technology, standard car mounts are becoming obsolete as magnetic car mount mobile holders are gaining momentum in the market.
Meet the Zappa Magnetic Touch One Car Mount Mobile Holder. This beauty has a reinforced magnetic holder that produces a 6lb (about 3 kilograms) of intensive pull force, which keeps your phone in place no matter how bumpy the ride is.
