Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A

70% Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Review
Source: PC Advisor English
The 2GB RAM model we reviewed lacks features compared to the better-specced Redmi Note 5A options that cost only slightly more. There's no fingerprint scanner, a slower processor, a less impressive selfie camera and less memory and storage.

62% Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A (Y1) review
Source: GSM Arena English
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A stays true to traditions with a bargain price and a reasonable level of equipment. Just don't be misled that the 'Note' moniker means the same it meant for the Redmi Note 4. This one is positioned lower in the foodchain. If you are alright with that, it won't disappoint a Redmi fan. And if you're keen on selfies it's quite a tempting offer.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
