Given its Rs 4,999 price and specifications, the Redmi 5A does seem like the phone to beat, but could Xiaomi have kicked itself in its heels this time?

The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is a steal at its introductory price tag of Rs 4,999 for the first 5 million buyers. The regular price is Rs 5,999. Its predecessor which was a true value for money purchase with a price tag of Rs 5,999, set a bar for entry-level...

Xiaomi Redmi Y1 review: An affordable phone but selfie enthusiasts might want to stay away from this one


The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 sticks to what has worked for the company in an attempt to up it a little bit by including a 16 MP selfie camera for selfie lovers.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 packs a lot of what we have seen in this year’s budget smartphones from the company. The Y1 sticks to most of what has worked for the company with an attempt to up the notch a little by including a 16 MP selfie camera.

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...
