Lead2XL, 21 Aug 2017Too bad about the smaller battery but then I don't think there was a Note 4a? So, nothing to c... moreRedmi note 4g ( 1st version) with sd 410, 5.5" 720p, 3100mah battery used to give me 5hrs sot on moderate to heavy usage.
Expect the similar results for note 5a.
I think 5a will get 6hrs sot.
rakesh0991, 21 Aug 2017no not at all cause all redmi notes have 5.5 inch display and redmi always had 5 inch onesRedmi always use 4xx processor and 720p display . Your logic doesn't stand
Urgh. WTF did you stick a 400 series Snappy in there? Should be 600 series or at least go MTK.
Mr. Electronics, 21 Aug 2017Not bad, but the original redmi note 5 will most likely include better specsFor me they should name it "Redmi 5A" and not "Redmi Note 5A" based on what quick specs they released.
my honest opinion:
Xiaomi could put a worse camera in this and make the Redmi Note 5 with this 16MP camera because if this 5A came with 720p screen there no need to have such a big number in MP because 5.5 with 720p screen is too bad.
All the rest is fine. For the price is way way better than Sammy J's, LG K's and Sony E's.
I don't see it mentioned in the article but the 2+16GB base model has lower specs and is listed under a separate webpage: https://www.mi.com/redminote5a/
Same screen size/resolution and rear facing camera as the others, but has SD425, no fingerprint and front facing 5MP instead.
, without Gorilla Glass touch screen on redmi Note mobile are totally waste of money i again repeat it is totally waste of money don't purchase it remember don't purchase it
This is much better offer than the old budget smaller Redmi 4A. Let's see what the real Redmi 5/Note 5 have to show off with.
Kunal S., 21 Aug 2017they should name it Redmi 5a instead of Note 5ano not at all cause all redmi notes have 5.5 inch display and redmi always had 5 inch ones
Too bad about the smaller battery but then I don't think there was a Note 4a? So, nothing to compare this one with if that's the case.
Vishal, 21 Aug 2017Not gonna complain at that price but please give us the Redmi Note 5 with the SD660 chipset nowexactly my thoughts...been waiting for a sd660 device from xiaomi for so long...would love to see redmi note 5 with 660...
Foo, 21 Aug 2017iPhone clone spottedexplain plz where did u spott that clone .
Not really bad compared to crappy v*vo and O*PO but Redmi 4 Prime has the same price and is way better than this. Wish they release affordable phones with newer and better chipsets.
not bad .... many people would pick that over redmi 4 . still should have kept the 4000 ma battery .
