The new Redmi 5A is virtually identical to the Redmi 4A in terms of specifications apart from a few cosmetic changes. There is a 5-inch HD screen, and the phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of storage.

The phone performs well considering it’s an entry-level phone, and while battery life is great, both the front and rear cameras are only just about acceptable. Running the show is a 3,000mAh battery and you get MIUI 9 out of the box on this Redmi product.
