In August this year, Xiaomi company announced the mid-level smartphone Redmi Note 5A with a 5.5-inch display 720p (1280 × 720 pixels). And Today Launched the budget Smartphone called Redmi 5A. Xiaomi Redmi 4A is still a good idea for people looking for a cheap smartphone for basic applications. Today in China his successor is presented. And since the successful design does not change, then the modifications in Redmi 5A is not much.
The specification is basically identical to that of the Redmi 4A. The changes cover only two things. According to the manufacturer, the casing is no longer plastic, and metal (though it is just a bit doubtful and may be of durable plastic, which perfectly pretends metal). Second thing: reduced battery capacity from 3120 mAh in Redmi 4A to 3000 mAh in Xiaomi Redmi 5A. The dimensions of the smartphone and its weight have also changed a little.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A smartphone is made in an all-metal package with dimensions of 140.4 × 70.1 × 8.35 mm and a weight of 137 grams. The front part contains a familiar set of five-camera self-camera, sensors, and speakers, as well as three standard touch-sensitive buttons for brand models.
The smartphone is equipped with a 5-inch screen with an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels and an “eye protection” mode, if necessary, reducing the level of the blue spectrum of the image. The screen that integrates is 5 inches, so we speak of a smartphone that fits well to the hand and does not need two to be able to use comfortably. In terms of resolution, the integrated IPS panel offers a quality of 720p ( 296dpi), which makes it clear that this is a clearly entry-level model. By the way, there will be several options regarding the colors to choose from and the Xiaomi Redmi 5A does not have a fingerprint reader.
The two essential components that integrate in the smartphone are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor – with Adreno 308 GPU -, so high power levels are not achieved (but it does make it clear that Xiaomi is moving further away from MediaTek) and , in what has to do with integrated RAM, the choice by the manufacturer is 2 GB . That is, the basics so that the operation is correct. The same quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 with a working frequency of 1.4 GHz and Adreno 308 graphics is used as the central processor. The amount of RAM is 2 GB, the storage capacity is 16 GB, while there are no other variations of the model, although it can be imagined later, as it was with Redmi 4A, which was added a 2/32 GB version after the announcement. Those with 16 GB will be small will be able to use a microSD memory card with a maximum capacity of up to 128 GB, although for this it is necessary to sacrifice the second slot for SIM cards.
On the back of the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, a 13-megapixel camera with PDAF is used, while on the front a Selfie Cam with 5 megapixels is installed. Furthermore, the 137-gram-heavy metal-look case accommodates a 3,000 mAh strong battery which can only be recharged slowly with 5 watts. After all, the operating system is the Android Nougat based MIUI 9 preinstalled. Like most smartphones from Xiaomi, the dual SIM-capable Xiaomi Redmi 5A does not support the LTE 20, which makes it even more unattractive. The battery capacity of the novelty is 3000 mAh, although the predecessor Redmi 4A battery was at 3120 mAh, while the manufacturer assures that in standby mode, the smartphone will last up to 8 days.
Xiaomi Redmi 5A is available on Geekbuying in Platinum Silver, Champagne Gold, and Rose Gold, at a price of $109.99 use Coupon Code: REDMI5A. As a tradition, the price is undoubtedly its strong point, as it is already on Redmi 4A.
