  • Nothing new compared to the Redmi 4A

Xiaomi has been crowding the budget smartphone market with multiple models and variants at overlapping price points, all with impressive specifications that the competition has struggled to match. At the lowest end, the Redmi 4A (Review) has been a compelling phone ever since its launch in India eight months ago, and we have recommended it to anyone on a water-tight budget. Now, Xiaomi is replacing its entry-level Redmi 4A with the Redmi 5A and making a really big deal about this launch even though there's very little difference between the two models.

Redmi 5A Summary

Xiaomi&ampamp#039s new Redmi 5A is virtually identical to the Redmi 4A in terms of specifications. It has a few cosmetic differences on the outside, but nothing about it is new or different. You get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage, a 5-inch HD screen, and 3000mAh battery. Performance is good for an entry-level phone, and while battery life is great, both the front and rear cameras are only just about acceptable. MIUI 9 has a few useful features, but there&ampamp#039s some bloat to deal with. Overall, low pricing is this phone&ampamp#039s most attractive feature.

    it has one new feature compared to 4a, i.e. dedicated slot for external card so you need not to compromise with sd-card or another sim
