Xiaomi Redmi 5A is the successor to the budget friendly Redmi 4A that we saw some time ago. It offers impressive value for money like the other device, with a solid design, a quad-core Qualcomm processor and 2GB RAM.
One of the things to like about the devices in the Xiaomi Redmi range is their robust and attractive design in relation to price. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A sports an appealing unibody metal chassis, doing away with the Redmi 4A’s plastic body. While it is not slim, the phone is not overly thick either at about 8.4 mm.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A sports a standard 5-inch display that uses in-plane switching (IPS) technology. This rocks HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels for a pixel density around 294 ppi. You can expect this to thrill you and your friends to decent viewing experience.
For the price, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A is not too lightweight in the camera department. It packs a 13 megapixel shooter with f/2.2 aperture on the rear. You get autofocus, LED flash and other regulars in the mix. The camera is capable of Full HD (1080p) video recording.
There is a respectable 5 megapixel snapper above the display for selfies. Onboard storage is 16 GB. You can use the phone’s second SIM slot to expand space further using a microSD card.
You should get good value for your money in terms of performance. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A comes with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor and 2GB RAM. Plus, there is an Adreno 308 GPU to take care of graphics. Xiaomi Redmi 5A promises rich user experience with Android 7.1 Nougat operating system. This has Xiaomi’s MIUI 9 skin on the surface.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A offers you opportunity to enjoy speedy 4G LTE connectivity. It gets juice from a 3,000mAh Li-Ion battery that looks to supports decent runtime. Connectivity features also include microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct.
