Redmi Router AX3 Using Review: Cost-effective Wi-Fi 6 Router

By  Steve Lowry 2020-06-10 9924 0

Wi-Fi 6 is becoming popular this year, and more and more Wi-Fi 6 routers are on the market. This year, the AX3600 launched by Xiaomi took the lead in reducing the price of the flagship Wi-Fi 6 router to 599 yuan. Then the Xiaomi AX1800 further lowered the price of the Wi-Fi 6 router to 329 yuan. Now, Redmi has also launched the Redmi AX5 Wi-Fi 6 router, which costs only 229 yuan. How does this Redmi router perform? Here will give you a detailed Redmi Router AX5 using review.

Redmi Router AX5 Highlights

Although the price is cheap, the Redmi router AX5 has not shrunk too much in terms of configuration. Redmi AX3 uses 4-core 64-bit A53 1.2GHz CPU+ single-core 1.5 GHz NPU, computing power up to 11040DMIPS, has 256MB large memory, and 4-channel Qorvo independent signal amplifier. What’s more, the Redmi router AX5 supports the latest Wi-Fi 6 technical standard and has the ability of Mesh networking.

In terms of parameters, Redmi router AX5 has reached the level of middle and high-end routers, but the price is pretty affordable, which will promote the popularization of Wi-Fi 6 technology.


Redmi Router AX5 Design

The Redmi router AX5 is more conventional in appearance and is designed with four antennas. In order to ensure wider and more stable signal coverage, the Redmi router AX5 uses four Qorvo high-performance independent signal amplifiers. Compared with the integrated amplifier, the signal strength of the independent amplifier is increased by 4dB, and the theoretical coverage is increased by 50%.


The AX5 body of the Redmi router uses a large area hollowed-out design, which can release the heat from the inside of the body more quickly.


There are two LED indicators at the top of the Redmi AX5 router, through which we can more intuitively understand the current working status of the router.


There are one WAN port and three-gigabit LANs on the back of the Redmi router AX5.


Redmi Router AX5 Network Test

Through the network speed test, the download speed is 298Mbps and the upload rate is 37.2Mbps at A, 362Mbps at B, 38Mbps at C, and 37.2Mbps at C.


From the test results, there is no big problem when the Redmi router AX5 is used for daily household use. If you have a large area or the router needs to wear multiple walls, then you can consider using the Mesh network to achieve high-speed network coverage of the whole house.


Redmi router AX5 supports OFDMA, MU-MIMO, and other technologies, which can ensure the stability and speed of the network. At the same time, officials said that the system upgrade will be pushed before July 15, so as to support the networking of multiple Mesh, so that the network coverage of large households is more extensive.


Redmi Router AX5 APP

Through the Xiaomi Mi WiFi APP, the Redmi router AX5 can be configured and the system can be updated. Redmi router AX5 will also add Tencent online Game Accelerator (upgraded before July 15) in subsequent upgrades, which can reduce latency and make the game smoother.


In addition, Xiaomi Mi WiFi APP can also optimize the quality of Wi-Fi to provide a more stable network connection in a complex network environment. At the same time, Xiaomi Mi WiFi APP can also open the security center of routing and provide firewall protection.


The Verdict

From the configuration and experience point of view, the price of Redmi router AX5 is relatively cost-effective, if you are still using Wi-Fi 5 or even Wi-Fi4 standard router, then you might as well change to a Redmi router AX5.
