Strength

  • Excellent cameras for its price
  • Very good build quality
  • Decent performance
  • Decent battery life
  • Decent display quality
  • MIUI 9 is very good
  • Great user experience
  • Good value for money

Weakness

  • Plastic body


Should You Buy?

Overall, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A is very well built phone with very good cameras for a budget phone. It also comes with decent performance, decent display, decent battery life and is a good package in total. But, it also misses out on a fingerprint scanner, a big battery and a premium metallic body which the last year’s Redmi 4 delivers with excellence at the same price. So, there is no good reason to go with the Redmi 5A (3 GB) as Xiaomi’s other phones make a better choice.
