Xiaomi Redmi 5A review: The device that sets the bar for entry-level smartphones

Xiaomi Redmi 5A Again Stock Came Only In Redmi 5A Dealer In Raipur – Idris Electronics Raipur

Very much like the Redmi 4A, their’s not much at fault with Xiaomi’s preference for polycarbonate in the Redmi 5A. The 5A comes in a little heavier than its predecessor though at 137 grams. Overall, the phone feels light, grippy and sturdy to hold as well.

The design here almost resembles its predecessor with the placement of the backward-firing speakers being one of the few changes. The front looks almost identical and unlike Xiaomi’s other devices, theirs no 2.5D glass on its entry-level smartphone. That does not hamper usability in any way.

The volume rocker and power button placement is on the right-hand side and provide the right amount of feedback while also being adequately clicky. The left-hand side sees a rather odd hybrid SIM card tray along with another regular single-SIM tray on top. The Redmi 5A comes with a thickness of 8.4 mm and a width of 70.1 mm.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5A comes with a 5-inch HD display and houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC with a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. The graphics department is handled by an Adreno 308 GPU. The use of a Qualcomm chipset at this price is a notable inclusion since a majority of entry-level devices pack lower-end MediaTek chipsets which is a major trade-off in performance in most cases.

The chipset is paired with 2 GB RAM and comes with 16 GB of storage. While this is based on the device we were reviewing, there is also a 32 GB storage variant with 3 GB RAM alongside the base variant. The Redmi 5A comes with 8.58 GB of usable space at first boot and can be expanded up to 256 GB using the dedicated microSD card slot.

On the camera end, you get a 13 MP rear camera, along with a 5 MP selfie camera. All this is powered by a non-removable 3,000 mAh Li-ion battery.
