    Hello,

    to all of you.

    My friend successfully placed an order of Redmi Note 5 Pro 6 GB version in a PreOrder sale of Redmi Note 5 Pro, after placing an order he came to know that its delivery time is max 30 days, now he is in doubt that Should he wait for this? or cancel this order and look for some other phone? as more and more mobile phones are coming in the month of May, after the launch of these phones like Zen Phone 5 etc.Will it worth to buy Redmi Note 5 Pro as MI A2 is also coming? He can wait for a month easily.Please reply. Thank You.
    Regards,

    The waiting game will always be there.
    What we think latest today, maybe obsolete tomorrow.

    Btw, why the 1 month waiting period of RN5P?

    You should consider Asus zenfone max pro m1, that phone is definitely a good contender to dethrone xiaomi's redmi.
    They are undercutting redmi with same specs at lesser price. Atleast preorder price is lower and they are selling 4gb 64gb version at 13k with better battery of 5000mah.
    Preorder starts on 10th and delivery is after a week.
    If you want 6gb version then just wait.

    no, i meant wait for another new phone he may like.
    Moto releases new phones in July- Aug. Probably he'll find something he likes.

    I thought of buying this too but camera and headphone jack are inferior to redmi note 5 pro. So I chose it

    After placing the preorder on the website of MI there is written that "Your order will be shipped within 30 days from date of order date." that's why it is.

    Do note that Xiaomi phones come with disgusting Ads infested MIUI, even system apps which cannot be uninstalled push ads, pathetic company, only opt for Android One versions of Xiaomi phones.

    I was hoping that XIami would come with a dual installation mode at start up for all their phones such as either install MIUI or native android, so that users take a call. Believe me, there are still a lot of fans for MIUI.

    their entire model is to sell phones at cost and then make money of people using their services like streaming/storage etc. Thats why they made it harder to unlock bootloader to root the phones so that people dont change roms that easily on xiaomi phones. Why would they allow a choice between google and miui?

    You should have a look at the new Nokia 6 (2018) seems a worthy contender without flash sales and clean Android interface

    Each person to their own.

    I have used MIUI on various flavours and found that it is surely RAM hungry, and is best with 3GB and above RAM. However, the theming of MIUI is something that is great, plus the several app features are great too like dual apps.

    I would say if you still can get the RN5P, its a great device, VFM. I feel the ASUS M1 Pro is a worthy competitor, losing some points but these, like the camera are subjective.

    Its so bad, we have idiots clamouring for MIUI on the A1.

    It uses an relatively cheap omnivision sensor for camera. Its bad, not subjectively :p

    Technology has the advantage to buy it at any moment as you will find the new version soon. You can sell the previous version, add some amount into it and buy new one for you. Second hand sales have made it possible to fulfil your dreams related to smartphones!
