Hello MI Fans,
With the launch of Redmi 5A Xiaomi has been set a new benchmark for the budget devices. Redmi 5A is now ruling the budget smartphone section in the Indian market. In this thread, I am going to do a gaming review of the devices and will see how the game will perform at various low and high-end games. But before moving to the gaming review lets take a brief look at the hardware of the Redmi 5A that supports the Gaming Experience. The Redmi 5A is powered by the Qualcomm MSM8917 Snapdragon 425 chipset with Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU along with the Adreno 308 GPU which is far better than others in this budget segment. One of the graphics API used for graphics rendering in the phone is Open GL ES 3.0 which supports the graphics processing of the device. Let's start the review by playing following games:-
Subway Surfers is an endless runner single-player mobile game co-developed by Kiloo and SYBO Games, private companies based in Denmark. With 500,000,000 - 1,000,000,000 Installs and with the 4.5/5 rating it remains on the trending page at gaming section of the Play Store. While playing this game in Redmi 5A there are no major lags noticed in the device even the controls are working very smooth and even with the device does not heat within the 5-10 mins of gameplay.

The game is single-player only.With the rating of 4.6/5 and 10,000,000 - 50,000,000 installs in Google play the game is on the top charts of Gaming section. Redmi 5A does not face any issue in running this game even the setting is set to high even then also we don't face any major issue of lagging. The Redmi 5A is doing a good job in the graphics rendering of the Game.
Asphalt Xtreme is a high-end racing video game, published and developed by Gameloft and the second spinoff in the Asphalt series.

With 10,000,000 - 50,000,000 Installs this game requires a good hardware to run this game and I am glad to tell you that the Redmi 5A is performing very well with this game, however, there are some minor frames lags in the game while we set the game to high graphics however the game runs smoothly with the medium and low settings. The controls are very smooth and Gyroscope is doing the exceptional work making the controls easy with every tilt.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset along with the Adreno 308 GPU doing the exceptional work not only in rendering the graphics but also in multitasking. There are no major lags while playing the medium and low ends games, however, some lags are observed while playing High-end games which is far better than the other devices available in this price range.
