  1. I thought Redmi Note 5 will come with Snapdragon 660.. What a disappointing specs! I like MIUI and using Redmi Note 3 since a year.. I wanted to upgrade to Redmi Note 5.. Looks like I’ll have to wait for Redmi Note 6..

  2. Redmi Note 3 650
    Redmi Note 4 625
    Redmi Note 5A 425
    Redmi Note 6A 410 (I think so)

    So they want to degrade processor and battery and want to sell at same prices.

    Xiaomi slowly started to loose its charm in upcoming days.

    1. It’s a lite version like Redmi 4A. I think this lite versions always have less powerful processors

  3. Now people will not complain here about 425 whereas if you pay little extra i.e 3 thousand you are getting an Indian brand with same specs better display 18:9 aspect ratio fingerprint sensor front 16 mp camera with flash and they still complain

  4. with so many redmi models in 6-10k with diffrent Ram options, the price difference between most Redmi models is as low as Rs 500-1000.

  5. Quite useless! Even a redmi 4 has way better specs.
    I only wish if sd435 used fin-fet technology 14nm threading.

  6. If Redmi note 5a holds 4000 mah battery than it will become a strong competitor in mid range..

    1. No idea but next month they are launching a dual camera phone, so don’t think this will come to India soon, may be if they are planning then after 2 months interval from the next phone they launch.

    2. Do you prefer these useless handsets?

      Redmi 4 and note 4 are much better options. Even Redmi 4A is better if separate card slot is not needed.

  7. Hi Gogi,

    I think it is RMB 1199 (approx Rs. 11500) with “4GB/64GB” in the very last line of the article..

    Thanks!
