Hands-on Images
The box of the Xiaomi Redmi 5A is similar to the packaging of Redmi Y1, though the red colour does attract attention. Opening the minimalistic looking box reveals the smartphone itself. Below it, you'll find the user manual and a warranty guide. Unsurprisingly, the handset doesn't come bundled with earphones - like other Xiaomi phones. You do get a SIM-ejection tool, a micro-USB cable and a 1A wall charger.
The Redmi 5A is having a 5-inch screen. The resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels also remains the same, resulting in decent levels of sharpness. The IPS panel also offers an accurate colour reproduction.
The Device is having 3,000mAh battery which will last for a full day of moderate usage
On Front-Top of the Device Features a 5mp Front shooter.The front camera features a wider aperture of f/2.0 (vs f/2.2), the Ear Piece and Proximity Sensor

The back of the device is poly-carbonate and houses the ‘Mi’ branding at the lower centre, the back also houses the speakers towards the bottom.
