Xiaomi has launched the budget-friendly Redmi 5A in Pakistan. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is a pretty impressive device, considering the combination of price and features. Let’s take a deeper look into the device.
Exterior and Display
As expected from a budget-friendly device, the design certainly isn’t the best feature of the device. It has a pretty basic plastic built with some metal/aluminum brushing on the back.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A sports a 5”IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 720 x 1080, making it a regular HD display.
Internals and Software
Xiaomi has impressed us with the internals of the Redmei 5A. Even though this device is fairly inexpensive, Xiaomi has installed a SnapDragon 425 processor, which will ensure smooth performance for day-to-day tasks. The processor is clocked at 1.4 GHz and is coupled with the Adreno 308 GPU, which certainly won’t be enough to run demanding games.
As far as the storage is concerned, this device comes with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB Internal storage.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A runs the Android 7.1.2 and offers pure stock-Android experience.
Camera and Battery
This device offers a 13MP primary shooter with aperture f/2.2 and some additional features including phase detection autofocus and LED flash.
The secondary shooter is a rather simple 5MP lens, but with a slightly lower aperture of f/2.0, which is expected to click brighter pictures at night.
The Redmi 5A comes with a 3000 mAh battery, which is sufficient to last you a couple of days on moderate usage.
Price and Conclusion
This phone is priced at Rs.15,000 in Pakistan.
Considering the features, quality and aftersales services of Xiaomi, the Redmi 5A is pretty good for its price if you’re looking for a budget-friendly phone.
