I've been using redmi 5a since mid 2018 and im very satisfied. It has a great value for its price. The camera is good and also it comes with an IR blaster which most of its successors in the A series dont have. It's a really good budget saver.
Budi, 20 Feb 2019It's about 2 hour from 10% to 100%Really
I'm still using this phone from February 2018 until now and still doing fine but don't know for how long since current applications after update consumed lot memory and internal storage. This phone is also help me a lot during travel whenever I need remote control to use tv or AC.
It's a quite good smartphone. A very basic entry level smartphone. Normal camera, without fingerprint sensor, but does the work greatly. I've been owning it since 2018 as a low budget phone it lags somewhat but surely not a gaming phone. I use at home so for daily tasks it is best. 👍👍👍👍 Overall it's a great smartphone for students and housewives.

I bought this phone in 23rd January 2018 and now it has been almost 4 years and I this phone is working very good yeah it lags sometimes and some battery issues but still it is working very good for me.
Their technical team who developed apps to support the mobile is worst. Anytime it deletes the contact details, whatsapp messages, etc without warning. To restore the contact details from their own cloud it takes over 24 hours :) :). Maybe they do not understand indexing features ;)
Good 9/10 but i hate update miui because lag is very much and if update miui 11 ram is 899Mb
I don't know what others saying, but for me this phone is the best. Bought 2018 January, still functioning very well. Battery now little bit fast draining. Some lag also. But... Wow. Well done Xiaomi. Good product.

This was my first phone ,it worked efficiently but due to its battery issues ,i bought the vivo v21e it is an amazing phone
this is my first xiaomi phone, I use the 3/32gb variant it works normally.
This phone is full of memories for me.
now i have sold it, because i need big storage, i have switched to redmi note 10s 8/128gb.
that's enough for me with specifications that are quite far from my old cellphone.
Very good 9/10 i have problem since update MIUI
Just bought this phone for like 45 dollars. The size is perfect to use as a secondary phone. Can use 4G Volte on only 1 SIM at a time, no Dual 4G Volte. Need to change the battery. How much it cost in service center
Rotich, 22 Jun 2021Hey, i have this type of phone and i have updated the system software to version 8.1 from 7.1.... moreI assume you upgraded from MIUI 9 or MIUI 10 to MIUI 11. For a ROM rollback, these r the main steps:
0. download MIUI 9 or MIUI 10 .zip file for your device, from the web(ps. easily available on the web)
1. backup all your data
2. unlock bootloader
3. install custom recovery(for android 8.1)
4. using recovery, wipe system, cache and ART/dalvik cache.
5. using recovery, install "no-verity-opt-encrypt-6.1" (ps. search for this on web)
6. using recovery, install your downloaded MIUI .zip file.
7. using recovery, wipe cache and ART/dalvik cache
8. reboot the system
9. enjoy !
(ps. above are just the main steps, detailed steps are well explained on the web, AND IF ANY DOUBT, REPLY BACK TO ME)
Yoyo, 06 May 2021What is the best custom rom for redmi 5a? for now I'm trying viper osyou can literally flash any custom ROM. My personal suggestion would be to install that ROM which comes without G-apps. Later on u can install G-apps pico package(the lightest one).
