REVIEW OF ANDROID 9 PIE Update on Redmi Note 5 Pro
New Features (Based on Android 9)
- Only Showing Android 9 on settings.
- No new feature added of Android 9 Pie currently.
- Now you can use Android 9 Pie exclusive applications on your Redmi Note 5 pro.
Since this is first Beta build released on Android 9 Pie, Xiaomi added no new feature of Android 9 Pie on this ROM but we can surely say that some of the features of official Android Pie will get added later on upcoming builds.
- Updating process took around 6 to 8 minutes.
- Little lag on first boot.
- System launcher crashed firstly but started working again properly.
So, guys, this is the very first build of Official public BETA ROM released by Xiaomi for Redmi Note 5 pro.
So no new features of Android Pie added to this ROM till now and that’s the biggest demerit of using custom skins like MIUI or ColorOS.
Whether you get Android updates or not but nothing big changes and you get the same functions as of older version of Android.
Although, I recommend you to flash or update your Redmi Note 5 pro to Android 9 Pie because of course latest and updated things always serves you best but if you are happy with Android 8, then updating your device to this ROM is not necessary and you can wait for some more days to update until more new features get added.
So, guys I hope you liked this post.. Please comment if you face any problem and not forget to share this post to your friends owning Redmi Note 5 Pro.
