Is anyone not realizing that this is the lower entry version model of the note 5? There's a reason why it has the A next to the 5
Redmi Note 5A come with weaker chipset Snapdragon 435 and with this development the proper Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Mi Max 3(always follow suit Redmi Note series chipset) the best it can get is SD 630 never be SD660 and maybe Redmi series will get SD 2XX in future. After Hugo Barra leave Xiaomi, the new phone they produce always come with weaker chipset except for Mi 6.
Sgouf, 07 Jul 2017this is sh*t... cmon xiaomi... "NOTE mean bigger" 5.7 QHD screen and 5000mah is bettercome on guys, don't expect too much from cheap phone, they are actually just a tool to get the job done, xiaomi make good effort with 16MP front camera to compete oppo line up with their outdated mediatek soc
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2017it's sucks. battery and processor is very lowIndeed
Looks like an OPPO F1s with following changes
Snapdragon 435 instead of Mediatek 6750 (same with GPU)
Rear Mounted Finger Print scanner
Xiaomi MIUI Skin instead of ColorOS
So why we will prefer to buy a year old handset ???
OK guys enough, Calm down! this is really a downgrade by Xiaomi again this phone is a Redmi Note 5A it does contain the letter "A" which you have to put in your mind that it is an entry level phone. ok? An entry level phone that has a size of 5.5 display. It's specs is a little bit lower than the Midrange phones like x4note/x4 and the much more awaited xiaomi note 5.

The 435 is a 28nm chipset while the 625 is 14nm, I'm pretty sure that the 625 consume less power than the 435, why would Xiaomi decide to reduce the battery from 4100 to 3080mAh? Honestly I don't understand.
