Redmi 5A - Review with Pros and Cons

Mi has  recently launched the the latest budget oriented smartphone named Redmi 5A.
It has been also branded as the "Desh ka Smartphone" since it has been priced at very affordable rate of Rs. 4999.

Let us check if it is really worth the price. Let us quickly go through the specifications and its Pros and Cons.


Display - 5'' Inches HD Display
                1280 x 720 resolution,
                296 PPI,
                1000:1 contrast ratio

Processor -  Snapdragon 425 Quad Core clocked at 1.4 GHz

Dimensions -  Height:140.4 mm
                       Width:70.1 mm
                       Thickness:8.35 mm
                       Weight:137 g

Camera & Video - Rear - 13 MP
                                Front - 5 MP
                                Video Recording - 1080p/720p video, 30fps

Memory -      2 GB RAM with 16 GB Internal Memory storage

It has 4G support for VoLTE and it also has an IR blaster to use it as a remote, GPS, Dual SIM support etc.

Overall it seems a great specification at a affordable price however there are other smartphones also available in the market with almost the same specifications within the same price range.

Redmi 5A will be a better option for the first time smartphone users or for those who are still using the old touch screen phones.

But if you are a heavy smartphone user and had used a better smartphones before then I suggest that please do not go with this phone. This is only for the first time smartphone users. I had a very bad experience with the Redmi 3S and Redmi 4/4A phone and I hope that Redmi 5A does not disappoint the users.

Overall it is a better option for you if you are having a very tight budget and can not shell out more than Rs. 5000.
