The Redmi 5A is powered by a Snapdragon 425 SoC, 2GB/3GB RAM, and 16GB/32GB storage depending on the variant. The internal storage on the Redmi 5A can be further expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. A 3000mAh battery backs the phone without fast charging. The Redmi 5A runs Android Nougat-based MIUI 9 OS.
In contrast, the Infocus Vision 3 settles for a MediaTek MT6735H quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage, which allows expansion up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card. It is backed by a 4000mAh battery without support for fast charging. The Infocus Vision 3 runs Android 7.0 Nougat OS out-of-the-box.
Both the Moto E5 and Redmi 5A give a tough fight to each other in the segment, but the Moto E5 managed to score brownie point with Turbo Charging and bigger battery. The Infocus Vision 3 lost the battle due to its under-powered MediaTek SoC.

Moto E5 vs Redmi 5A vs Infocus Vision 3: Verdict
To sum it up, both the Moto E5 and the Redmi 5A come pretty close in this comparison with similar SoCs, but the Moto E5 proves to be better when it comes to battery and screen resolution. The Infocus Vision 3 impresses in terms of battery capacity and camera specs but its low-powered MediaTek chipset plays against it.
If you are looking for a phone with a decent camera, big battery, and HD+ display then the Moto E5 should be your ultimate choice. However, if your major concerns lie in camera and battery then the Infocus Vision 3 offers you dual rear camera setup and big battery at budget pricing.
