Performance and Gaming

Since both smartphones come with the same processor and graphics processing unit, their benchmark scores are also similar.

Both smartphones handle common tasks easily. Social media apps, normal games, and other media applications work fine.

During heavy use, they perform equally well. I played four heavy games on both the handsets – Shadow Fight 3, Pub Mobile, Modern Combat and Modern Strike. All these games were running without any issue.

But yes, graphics performance is only average and random frame drops can be seen on both the handsets.

One thing is good that when you switch between heavy people, none of these smartphones restart the app.

In this section, both manage to impress us equally.

The camera

Starting on Daylight, the smartphone has its own camera algorithm.

While the Redmi Note 5 Pro goes with ‘As is’ colors, Lenovo Z5 tries to make it smooth and vibrant.

In terms of description, sharpness and saturation, Lenovo Z5 is better than Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Same is the case with HDR mode during daylight. The Z5 performs better than the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Talking about Bokeh mode, both smartphones’ perform more or less similar. They effectively blur the background while keeping the primary object in focus with maintaining the sharpness over edges.

Lenovo Z5 lasts for approximately 36 hours on the same charge during normal use, whereas Note 5 Pro lasts for 2 days when operated normally.

During the intense gaming, Lenovo Z5 consumed 21% in one hour. On the contrary, the note 5 supporter took about 17 percent of the battery. Using this data, calculation, Z5 and Note 5 Pro will last up to 5 and 6 hours, respectively.
