Redmi 5 a budget smartphone which was launched earlier in China is now been launched in India. This device came after the launch of redmi note 5 and note 5 pro. USP of this device is its modern looks i.e. 18:9 aspect ratio display. So is this device a real upgrade to Redmi 4? Will shortly compare it with redmi 4 and Will give redmi 5 Opinions. Here are it’s specifications…
Redmi 5 Specifications:
- 5.7 inch 720p HD display with 18:9 aspect ratio ( Corning gorilla glass protection)
- Android 7.1 Nougat with MIUI 9.1 on top
- 1.8GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor with Adreno 506 GPU

Specifications are quite impressive. With the new processor and 18:9 aspect ratio display redmi 5 could do well in the market. But there is a massive confusion between the redmi devices as xiaomi is now had a variety of budget smartphones including redmi 4, redmi 5a, redmi y1, y1 lite, note 5, note 5 pro, note 4 and mi A1. Also, almost all of these smartphones have ram variants so ut also makes confusion.
Price & Availability:
Redmi 5 is available in 3 variants on Amazon India. Base variant is selling for 7999Rs, middle for 8999rs and higher variant for 10999Rs. The worse thing is that this phone is only available in flash sales. So there are very rare chances to grab the device.
Redmi 5: BUY HERE
Redmi 5 Opinions:
The point is which is better to buy from all of these 3 variants of redmi 5. The price of base variant of redmi 4 was 7000Rs but now its 8000Rs but yeah for extra 1k it is coming with better processor and display. Still, the price of base variant should have been 7499Rs. If your budget is under 8k then definitely this one is the best option to go for.
3gb + 32gb variant is the best one to choose from all of 3. If your budget is 8k then add 1k extra and go for this variant. Don’t go for the 11k variant as at 11k you’re not getting the specifications which you can get on redmi note 5 1ok variant. So yeah just forget the 11k variant of this phone. Above 10k you get the phones from the same brand xiaomi like redmi note 5.
But for all these phones you would need to wait for flash sales which comes for only 30 sec. All the best for that.
