Xiaomi Redmi 5A Smartphone Review

Xiaomi Redmi 5A 32GB Review

 

The Xiaomi Redmi 5A doesn't set new standards, but it's still a good budget smartphone to buy for entry-level users.

Decent design ; Dependable battery life

Only 16GB storage on entry variant ; Average camera

The Redmi 5A is the phone you should buy if an entry-level phone is what you're looking for. It provides reasonable performance and battery life for the price, and good overall value for your money. However, we would only recommend buying the 32GB...
