Xiaomi Redmi 5A: Pros & Cons

out of 10
MSP Score
The Redmi 5A features a solid build quality paired with great performance for the price. It has one of the best cameras in its class. The battery backup is quite decent, and you get a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Redmi 5A does not come with a fingerprint reader. Furthermore, it still relies on physical UI navigation buttons which aren't as good as the on-screen ones.
The Redmi 5A is one of the best entry-level smartphones offered by Xiaomi. Its battery backup is wonderful, and the display quality is quite satisfactory. While a fingerprint scanner and better cameras could have helped, these aren't major concerns considering how affordable this handset is. It certainly gets our recommendation for someone looking for a basic smartphone to get the job done.
