The Moto G5 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 both are popular trendsetters in the smart phone industry. With so many of them out in the market today the consumers no wonder get bamboozled when making their final choice and buying it. Here we put the Moto G5 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 side to side helping you decide better.

The Note 5 is around 42% faster than the G5 which is powered with Android v7.1 Nougat and the G5 Android v7.0. The G5 weighs lighter than the Note 5 which means that it would be easier to hold it longer durations. The Note 5 is loaded with 4GB of RAM compared to the G5 having 3GB RAM, more RAM means it can perform multitasking more efficiently making the device quicker as well. The bad thing about the Note 5 is that it does not have a removable battery which the G5 has which should not prove to be a hassle in case the device freezes you can simply take off the battery. The screen size is larger in the Note 5 with 5.99 inches of display while the G5 gives a viewing capacity of 5 inches making browsing the internet, reading or watching movies a less enjoyable experience with the Note 5 also having better resolution of 1080×2160 px compared to 1080×1920 px for the G5.

When it comes to handling the Note 5 again fares better being 14% slimmer than the G5 which makes it easier to carry. In terms of the storage we can say that there is almost no comparison as the Note 5 offers much more memory then G5 which have a meager 16GB storage capacity while the Note 5 gives you 64GB of storage capacity allowing you to load more files, songs, videos etc. into your device. As far as the batter life is concerned the Note 5 has a larger battery of 4000 mAh with the G5 having a smaller sized one of 2800 mAh giving you lesser batter backup though this criterion is dependent on a range of other factors.

Apart from the above both have similarities too such as having the facilities of dual SIM, multi-touch, card slot, similar network , wireless connectivity along with multimedia features and fingerprint sensor. The better features of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 also come with a higher cost of Rs. 11,999 while the Motorola Moto G5 comes cheaper being priced at Rs. 8,049 which we think that it might be a justification given the fact that the Moto G5 might underperform the Xiaomi Note 5 in some departments, but the ultimate decision as always rests on the preference of the buyer.
