Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A is a device which appears to undertake the growing selfie smartphone marketplace with its 16-megapixel f/2.0 front camera. That isn’t yet, all she wrote. This phone really has more to it than that. It heavily sticks to its amazing Redmi roots and actually packs a key punch which we will be dissecting later. To begin, the configuration of this Redmi Note 5A we are going to be reviewing today packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
While the handset comes with a great sized 5.5-inch display on the front, it lacks the lustre that we have all come to expect from our smartphones. The device has a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, which results into a pixel density of 267 PPI. This might result in slightly dull visibility and legibility.
So far as design goes, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A is kind of plain looking and it is extremely similar to Redmi 4a. The phone is made entirely of plastic and while it doesn’t seem or texture premium, the build quality is fantastic.
The smartphone section has developed quite a bit and we now have powerful chips in VFM section too. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A comes with all the latest Snapdragon 435 chip, which was equipped in Redmi Note 4 too and that handset was lauded for its performance arts. In addition, the chip was connected to 4GB of RAM, which means multitasking is predicted to be ultra-smooth with this handset.
Running the software section is Android 7.1.2 Nougat skinned with MIUI. Our unit didn’t arrive with MIUI 9 just yet, but MIUI 8.5.6 instead. Updating is not available by the conventional means of this update utility, and we chose not to flash the ROM. The rationale being, the sole difference we are missing out on is that the split-screen mode.
The selfie smartphone tendency has long captured on and is here to remain. The all new Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A brings a powerful 16MP camera to the front panel of this handset. Front camera makes it one of the most powerful smartphones in budget section when it comes to selfies.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A is just another budget phone produced Xiaomi. Again, it offers quite a great deal of worth for the price but honestly, I really don’t observe any significant updates during the previous generation models. Consequently, if you’re looking for a smartphone which works like a champ and doesn’t violate your bank, this is the handset to elect for.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A is now available on Gearbest in a flashsale. You can grab this amazing smartphone in just $93.99 from Gearbest.
