Xiaomi Redmi 5A New Smartphone!

Xiaomi Redmi 5A is a good cheap smartphone great when you need just an entry Android smartphone. This device cost 9x less than an iPhone X but it’s perfectly capable to do advance things. Let’s dig deeper into the specs and see what you receive.

Main specs: 5.0 inch Display, MIUI skin on top of Android, Snapdragon 425 Chipset, Quad-core processor, Adreno 308 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage, TF card extend up to 128GB, 4G Connectivity, Dual SIM Card Dual Standby, 3.5mm jack, 5.0MP Front camera, 13.0MP Back camera and 3000mAh Battery!

I really enjoy the low weight on Xiaomi Redmi 5A it’s just 137 grams. In charger it’s using a 5V/1A variant. But a bad thing is how it’s only Micro USB connector. I would prefer to see USB Type-C! In terms of thickness it’s only 8.35mm.

With Bluetooth you get 4.1 to listen with wireless headphones if you want. The specs on the front facing camera goes: F/2.0 aperture, face Beauty and selfie countdown. The specs on rear camera: 5-element lens, F/2.2 aperture, LED flash, Low light enhancement, HDR, Panorama, Burst mode, Face recognition and Real-time filters!

This phone comes in Pink, Gold and Gray editions. They are kind of copying Apple’s colours. I highly enjoy the curved rear side of this phone. It makes it look very sleek. This is a good phone if you can’t afford the new Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus. It has three capacitive touch buttons on the front side below the display. I would prefer an all-screen display but you can’t always get what you desire.

The key thing that is super awesome about Xiaomi Redmi 5A is that it’s a low cost 4G speedy Android smartphone from a trusted brand you could rely on. If you want a bigger battery then I suggest you check out DOOGEE phones or Blackview smartphones. I have talked about them in the past on my website.

Xiaomi Redmi Y1 New Smartphone!

Xiaomi Redmi Y1 is a well designed phone from Xiaomi. Earlier I have talked about the lower end edition that is called Redmi Y1 Lite. That has a little more humble specs.

Main specs: 5.5 inch Display, Snapdragon 435 Chipset, Octa-core processor, Adreno 505 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, 128GB Card extend support, MIUI skin on top of Android, Dual SIM Card Dual Standby, 16.0MP Front camera, 13.0MP Back camera and 3080mAh Battery!

You can see with Xiaomi Redmi Y1 that Xiaomi keeps working on their idea of doing a higher megapixel sensor on the front for selfies. I feel that Xiaomi has learned that people use the selfie camera more than the rear camera. Especially in the times of Snapchat and Instagram!

This is a very slim gadget only 7.7mm in thickness and with low 153 grams of weight. It does come with a fingerprint sensor too. A sad thing is how it comes with old Micro USB technology. It’s a bit strange considering the price of this phone. Using microUSB in 2018 might be a little bit boring and outdated. It also doesn’t have new Bluetooth 5.0 but version 4.2.

The specs you get on front facing camera is: F/2.0 aperture, selfie-light, front flash light and 76.4 wide angle lens! The wide angle will be great for group selfies. The specs you get on rear camera are: PDAF, Flash light, F/2.2 aperture and 1080p video recording at 30fps!

I do enjoy how Xiaomi Redmi Y1 has 3.5mm jack for audio. A must have for wired cable lovers! The display has standard resolution of 1280×720. That it’s not higher is great because this might actually save you some battery. And most can’t tell a difference between 1080p and 720p display. So better to save battery life. This is a 4G phone so you will get the latest super speeds. We may see 5G in 2020 in smartphones! This phone comes in Gold and Gray colour edition!

Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus New Smartphones!

Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus is finally official and live! Earlier I been talking a lot about the rumored specs on these devices. The most impressive thing here is the low price start range. First you get the Redmi 5 for 120 dollars and the Redmi 5 Plus for low 150 dollars.

These two phones comes with the aspect ratio of 18:9. And the colours are: Black, Gold, Rose Gold and Blue. I wish they had a red edition.

Main specs on Redmi 5: 5.7″ Display, 1440×720 pixels, Snapdragon 450 Chipset, 2GB/3GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB Internal Storage, 3300mAh Battery, 12MP Rear camera with F/2.2 + LED Flash, 5MP Front Facing camera, 7.7mm Thickness, 157 Grams weight and Fingerprint scanner.

My first worry with Redmi 5 is that the display is a bit too big for my taste. I would prefer if they kept it around 5-inch or 4.8-inch. The compact phones are highly valued. But I do enjoy how these two mobiles have more bezel-less design on the front.

Redmi 5 Plus specs: 5.99-inch Display, 2160×108 pixels, Snapdragon 625 Chipset, 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB Internal Storage, 4000mAh Battery, 12MP Rear camera + F/2.2 aperture, 8.05mm Thickness, 180 Grams weight and Fingerprint scanner.

The good with the Plus edition is the better chipset and way bigger battery. But it’s also a heavier phone, slightly larger and thicker. Up to you to decide what you prefer inside a phone!

The most expensive Redmi 5 will cost 135 dollars and most expensive Redmi 5 Plus will be 180 dollars. Which is nice to see how they still keep the price down on their low-end Android devices. And how you get rounded back design and sleek overall look. Xiaomi doesn’t seem to wanna raise their price as aggressive as Samsung and Apple is doing with their latest premium phones.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 New Smartphone!

Xiaomi Redmi 5 is a smartphone that is new and that will be available soon! It comes in a regular clean Xiaomi design that we are used to. There is also a Xiaomi Redmi 5A phone available.

Main specs: 5.7″ Display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal Storage, Snapdragon 625 Chipset, Octa-core Processor, 4G Connectivity, Adreno 506 GPU, TF card up to 128GB, MIUI OS on top of Android, 5.0MP Front Camera and 12.0MP Main Camera!

First thing I love with Redmi 5 is how they haven’t removed the 3.5mm earphone jack. I also like how the display has the modern 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen resolution of the display is 1440×720 pixels. This is a phone that is coming with a metal shell too for premium sleek feel.

If you need to then you can use two SIM cards with this device. It supports Dual SIM Card Dual Standby with Nano SIM and Micro SIM card sizes. In colours you get this phone in either Black, Gray or Gold edition. The clock speed of the processor is up to 2.0GHz.

Another nice thing is how it comes with a fingerprint sensor and all the other regular sensors that people are used to. You also get an IR sensor. This can be used to use it as a Remote for a TV. The battery you get inside comes with 3300mAh! This is more than enough to last a long time.

Another thing that is very impressive with Redmi 5 is the slimness. It’s only 7.7mm in thickness. And the weight is 157 grams which is pretty light for a 5.7 inch smartphone. I am a bit disappointed how it’s so big. I would prefer if it just had a 4.8″ display. Would be easier to hold in hand.

The charging port is using the old Micro USB. The Bluetooth version is 4.2 I wish they would have had Bluetooth 5 inside. Of course there is a GPS inside with GLONASS and AGPS support.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 New Smartphone Leaked!

Xiaomi which is one of my favourite phone brands their new Xiaomi Redmi 5 has leaked in press renders. Their latest device before that Redmi 4 was a massive success.

This phone will come with 18:9 aspect ratio and a high resolution of 1440×720. It’s a large 5.7 Inch display which will be too large for many out there. I really wish more companies tried to do more compact devices. It will be running on Snapdragon 625 chipset and with 4GB of RAM and 64GB Internal storage.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 Render

In cameras you get installed we first have 12MP rear camera and then a 5MP front facing camera for beauty selfies. One annoying thing is how it’s not running with USB Type-C port. Still old microUSB which can be an annoyance when there is two cables you need to keep track of if you are an Android user.

It comes with a battery that has 3300mAh. Similar to what we seen in Galaxy Note 8! This will of course be a low-end device around 150 euro price range. It does look a bit more like a large iPhone 5. The Redmi 4 looked like a large iPhone 4. So it’s clear they are getting inspiration from Apple’s and Steve Jobs ideas of how the ideal phone should look.

Xiaomi Redmi 4X

I’m a little bit tired of these Gold coloured phones it’s starting to get a bit boring. Hopefully this phone will come in other editions too like Black and White.

It still seems like it will come with earphone jack but on the top side I would have prefer if they kept it on the bottom side. But you can’t get everything you desire in this world! This will be a bit more compact phone compared to Redmi Note 5. Xiaomi just like Samsung likes to release too many devices. But there is a quality aspect in quantity too.
