Esteban, 20 Oct 2020I have the xiaomi 5A with 2GB of ram basically since 2019 and the defects it has is that it is... morethis is not a genius phone you need to delete all the whatsapp and other apllications then you can have a lagfree gameplay without any problem
I have the xiaomi 5A with 2GB of ram basically since 2019 and the defects it has is that it is very slow with the new updates, it does not run heavy games such as cod mobile or pubg, it even crashes with simple games such as a card game (no It is not recommended to play any game) it is only for domestic use such as WhatsApp calls, messages or social networks, also the phone gets very hot when you use applications such as Instagram or YouTube for a few hours.
Basically (you don't have to put the latest MIUI update that supports it because it gets terribly slow and you will regret it)
it is better to leave it in the oldest possible version of MIUI) (you do not update it to the latest version of android either) It also discharges quite quickly, it only lasts about 3 hours, the battery fully charged with continuous use
Apart from all those defects, what I can highlight about this phone is: Its camera, its facial beauty, its ease of use, it is quite elegant, it is very easy to use, it is very good for virtual classes and finally it has many functions

Bought a redmi 5a in September 2020. But noticed that d battery drains fast. Tried stopping d background apps that run but didn't do much. So I end up charging it after I either surf d net or play a light puzzle game.
AbaChan, 06 Oct 2020So, what would you like to grab this time?moto g9, moto g9 plus, redmi 9, poco c3, poco f2 pro, galaxy m40 these are my choices for under 200/300 dollars. Though if I could spend more I'd go for pixel 4a.

Bought it in 2018, still using it daily. MIUI was super slow. Been using pixel experience oreo custom rom this whole time. I can use it for 6-7hrs on a single charge on Wifi. Gcam takes good pictures on ideal conditions.
Never thought this $100 phone would last this long.
For the past month, I could see some green shadow around the borders of the screen. Very subtle. Maybe there's an issue with the proximity sensor, as the phone restarts sometimes when I'm in the middle of a call.
The time has come for an upgrade.
Yhefhe, 28 Jul 2020I have used this phone for some years now got bored ..installed a custom rom went back to MIUI... moreIt's really very very good bettary backup and smoothly screen I have use 4 years in this phone
I have used this phone for some years now got bored ..installed a custom rom went back to MIUI Repeated the process almost 10 time with different customs Roms.as am writing this I have pixel experience ROM in it.quite a good phone and can take some beatings
This phone is virtually indestructible. Fell several times in a week during basketball on a concrete, nothing! One time I fell off a bike, it stumbled some 3 meters from me on the street, few scratches on edges, basically nothing, screen intact! Works fine. Chinese tank!
It's a good phone but now it's dated. And no more updates.
Instead of buying this, better opt for 7a or 8a series.
One can wait for few months then 9 of the series too would be available.
