  1. Hello Gigi Bro..I thought Redmi 4a will be priced @4999rs since in China it was launched @499yuan when it was launched but now Redmi 5a priced @4999 is very good that has good specs and seperate SD card slot….. Well done here Xiaomi…. What do u thing Gogi Bro

  2. well guyz,u cant complain about the specs when its less than 5k…
    Our indian companies give 1GB, 2MP Camera,Spreadtrum Processor for this..c Mon

  3. There is 1000rs cash back there after 12 months for first 50 lakhs buyers. So effective price 3,999 or 4,999 and actual price is 5,999?

    1. Why you guys don’t read terms and conditions before presuming any such things

      Just see that rs 1000 is in terms of Rs 100 × 10 discount coupons which can be used for recharges above rs 309 after 1 year…
      For those coupons you have to recharge with rs 199 for 12 months(28 days)

      Right now we are getting 3 months for rs 459, but according to above offer it will cost you 597 so overall you are being fooled, always read tnc
      So that’s a waste offer

  4. “Desh ka Smartphone” Tagline truly supports this well priced with decent specs smartphone from Xiaomi but isn’t it time we think all this comes at what cost? Any business model needs money to sustain with proper scaling and that makes me feel, what exactly people gain buying these with respect to what is at stake? Seems like a honey trap as it is too good to be true, so buyers choose wisely! How will this be used though is a different matter as our country has majority of folks who think later, act first!

  5. MMX LAVA Karbonn Spice XOLO are thinking suicide after launch Redmi 5A. Excellent job by Xiaomi.

  6. Only issue will be availability. As usual, some crooks will buy it and then sell it at higher cost, and those who really need it have to shed extra money unnecessarily.

    1. Yes but now Xiaomi has entered offline markets also, so there should not be such an issue and I guess they will have enough stock this time.

  7. Xiaomi pricing nailed it again. Rs 4,999 makes it very affordable for masses who are generally not fond of heavy app or gaming and uses phone just for calling, whtsapp and youtube. Thumbs up

  8. Well gogi bro, it means Redmi 4a is going to be discontinued….

    Well why it is rs 1000 cheaper than 4a although having dedicated slot!!!!

    Any opinion brother

    1. I guess hardware gets cheaper when it gets older, and today there is no good handset for this price.
