Xiaomi has earlier launched its Mi A1 handset and truly it is one of the best sufficient device available in the market. We are calling it sufficient as it packs a great blend of different features on a budget. With the arrival of Redmi Note 5 Pro, the sales of the device are going moderate. The most praised feature of the device is its Dual-Camera and to be true it takes amazing portrait shots. The device can record 4K video at 30fps but it is restricted by the stock camera app of the device. As compared to Mi A1’s camera app, the OnePlus 5/5T’s camera app is more refined and usable. If you have used or are using a OnePlus device then you may agree about this fact. There are a number of features like 4K recording, full-fledged Pro-mode, HDR, etc that make this app a perfect combination.
