Xiaomi Redmi 5A quick review Can be the go-to smartphone for everyone

Fortunately, as per the official reports, Xiaomi is going to release the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus smartphone on December 10 in China.

It is not clear if Reliance Jio will extend this Rs 199 plan to other smartphones in the market.

Being an entry-level smartphone, Xiaomi doesn't compromise in offering essential features.

The phone has 13 megapixels rear camera with PDAF, LED Flash, f/2.2 aperture and 1080p video recording. Redmi 5A is a demonstration of next step by Xiaomi to provide updated and next-generation technology to the users while keeping the overall cost as low as possible to allow it to be acquired by everyone.

With the new Redmi 5A, Xiaomi brings to the table another budget smartphone - a segment it revels in. A microSD card slot is given for expandable storage. On the software front, the device runs on Android Nougat-based MIUI 9.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A

The 2 GB + 16 GB variant of the Redmi 5A is priced at ₹4,999 ($78) while the 3 GB + 32 GB variant is priced at ₹6,999 ($109). Also, there will be two variants of the each phone, one with 3GB RAM/32GB ROM and another with 4GB RAM/64GB ROM. A successor to the Redmi 4A launched in March this year, the Redmi 5A is nearly the same device and you'd be hard pressed to find any major difference between the two. The regular Redmi 5 will sport a 5.7 inch HD+ display, whereas the Plus variant will come with a 5.99 inch FHD+ display. To avail the new offer, Redmi 5A users need to continue to recharge their accounts with the Rs 199 pack for 12 months to get the cashback.

The listing on the website shows that the smartphone will come with 2GB/3GB/4GB RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal storage option. Xiaomi Redmi 5A has a metallic matte finish, and will be available in three colours: Dark grey, Gold and Rose gold.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A has a 13MP camera on the back and 5MP selfie camera on the front.

Redmi 5A will be available online via Flipkart and Mi.com.

The dual-sim phone also has IR-blaster which can control home appliances with Xiaomi's Mi Remote App.
