Xiaomi Redmi 5A Design and display

The Redmi 5A highlights a unibody design having a metallic complete over a decent quality plastic back. It appears to be unique to its other Redmi smartphones.


The sides are metal, which packs it solidly, thus it feels truly tough to hold. It weighs 137 grams, and measures 140.4 x 70.1 x 8.4 mm.

Like the Redmi 4A, it has the front camera, earpiece and encompassing light sensor on the top of the display. The volume keys are underneath the display, which this smartphone isn’t backlit.

Power/lock key is on the right of the smartphone. At the left edge, there are two plates – one for dual SIM cards and other one is devoted to microSD card.

On the base of the smartphone, there’s a micro USB port with the primary microphone and the 3.5mm sound jack is placed on the top of the smartphone.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A Display

Back of the smartphone, there’s the essential camera, LED flash on the upper left corner and the speaker is at the bottom of the smartphone, which additionally has a small bulge to avoid sound blockage when the smartphone put on its back.

In general, the design is remains the same and it looks new for those who’ve seen the 4A yet it hardly matters to experience to have a good looking smartphone.

The Redmi 5A sports a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display with a 720×1280 pixels. When I compare this smartphone display with the other different smartphones in this budget, only one smartphone similar that was Redmi 4.

While Redmi 4 has a produces sharper and punchy output.

Colors look rich and distinctive which can be changed further changing on a manual change in the display settings. Also, it is one of the rare smartphone that offers a night mode for a happy reading in the night.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A Camera

There’s a 13-megapixel setup on the back of the Redmi 5A with a f/2.2 aperture, face Detection Autofocus and LED flash. PDAF is one of the fine upgrade in the camera category over its previous versions.

It can shoot full HD (1080p) recordings at 30fps. There’s a 5-megapixel sensor on the front with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video calls.

Moving onward, the Redmi 5A accompanies a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.0 wide aperture.

Front camera is simply normal to get nice light shots, yet you have to keep your hand steady for that.

By not too bad I mean can afford for price range of Rs 6,000 smartphone, generally, the front camera isn’t that energizing.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A Battery and Interface

As we’ve not utilized the Redmi 5A for long, we will soon be updating the complete battery performance in our complete review.

It’s a 3,000mAh battery, by which Redmi 5A is currently giving me the full day battery backup in the normal usage.

The Redmi 5A utilizes the Xiaomi’s most recent MIUI 9 skin over Android 7.0 Nougat.

First experience with the smartphone was quite smooth, but I have used the Redmi 4A for quite a while and it has a tendency to slow down the smartphone over a period of usage.

These are the other smartphones launched this year Honor 9, Motorola Moto X4Redmi Y1 LiteOnePlus 5T.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A Interface

It’s smarter to get the 3GB RAM variation to defend the lags, if user use it for long time.

Aside from this, MIUI 9 has figured out to impress with its appearance it has. It’s perfect. It accompanies some preloaded Mi suite of applications like Mi Store, Mi Drop, Mi Community, Mi Remote and then some.

Besides, the unit we got from Xiaomi has a set of Microsoft applications, Amazon, and UC News preloaded.

After checking, we found that these applications along with the OS have taken half of the portion of the memory leaving clients with a little more than 8GB internal capacity on the 16GB variation.

The great part is that these applications are removable, and you can uninstall of which you don’t like to free up some space.

Some of these applications are more useful for lot of many users and perhaps that is the reason Xiaomi is proceeding with them on every new release of their smartphone.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A Performance and specs

Redmi 5A runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset and comes in 2GB/3GB of RAM choices, having 16GB and 32GB of capacity.

As we probably know, that Snapdragon 425 is a low-end chipset and there’s not a great deal to expect here. But, it can deal with essential things like messaging, calling, surfing and multimedia.

Try not to install the apps like high end games, it will slow down the smartphone.

The great part is that Xiaomi has a feature that it has dedicated microSD card slot, supports up to 256GB, which is extremely amazing for a budget smartphone.


Xiaomi’s follow up to its top of bestselling budget smartphone in India isn’t a noteworthy update, rather, it’s a revision of the Redmi 4A.

At launching price at Rs 4,999, it is very affordable and even after the cost goes up by Rs 1000.

In spite of the fact that, we would prescribe you to go for the 3GB RAM variation as it will be a more steady and smooth gadget between the two.

The 2GB variation is a wise decision only if the cost difference between the two variation is more than Rs 1000.
