Hello,
I am planning to buy a new phone. I still didn't decide which one, but my No.1 priority is taking selfies and posting musical.ly videos

Since folk take selfies and post content with

Some hundreds of phone models, what makes you pick this one?

Half of my forum has been deleted

Sorry, half of my forum has been deleted. What I wanted to say is that my second priority is gaming. I like big screens too, and I have a budget. So I thought that Redmi Note 5 Pro could be great, except that there was no review for musical.ly and snapchat.

I've yet to find a phone/phablet to review for Snapchat use.

That's a new idea. I've yet to find any issue on any smart phone (iOS and Android) with running SnapChat. Given that, I think it's clear why no reviewer bothers to touch on this app during a review unless it doesn't run at all.

As to gaming, https://www.quora.com/How-was-gaming-experience-in-Redmi-Note-5-Pro as well as other reviews tell me this is not the gaming king of phones. It does game, just has limitations which were a bit too easy to find with research (I used google.)

As to posting content, I think the same issue that I noted with SnapChat applies here. Very few smart phones balk at posting content.

It actually depends

For exemple, my friend has a huawei 3 GB RAM and snapchat is really laggy for her, and my old LG (it was only 2 GB of RAM tho) was even worse. And plus the Redmi Note 5 pro has a 20 MP front camera which (I think) wouldn't support snapchat without lagging. And for musical.ly, I'm not sure but I don't think that it will run smoothly neither.

Never found that RAM unless under 1GB mattered.

When dealing with the new UHD 4K camera, I see most if not all went to 3 and 4G RAM.

But laggy? I usually find the owner has loaded up on apps. We factory reset and it's back to full speed after loading just the apps they actually use.

Sounds just like what happens to a lot of PCs.

Forgot to add something

And for the gaming, I don't really play those super high graphics games.
