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.

By nadeem zahid | 14 Dec 2017
if you are a student and cannot afford that budget then you can buy this phone. but the 32gb variant i will not recommend rather you can buy redmi 4 at the same price.

By jeethendra shettygar | 9 Jan 2018
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
