  1. Gogi sir,, My Xiaomi redmi 4x clearly lags in almost games while my brother’s Redmi 4A played smoothly,, does
    Snapdragon 435 has any issues, please help

  2. Gogibhai, If I am not wrong, it has separate sim slots with micro sd slot not Hybrid slot.
    Please correct that.

  3. low specs, suitable for low usage , if you get too many apps this wont work, low RAM, low battery. mediocre quality. waiting for a better product from Mi.

  4. My 2 64gb sd card is dead . So i m decided hybrid sim slot phone is not using lifetime . Only dedicated sd slot phone buy and used

  5. I am just wondering why such specifications are being released in to market, Redmi Note 5A looks like downgraded Redmi Note 4 and named as Redmi Note 5A (Big Joke ), Also this will be released in india next year with big tweets !!!

  6. Looks like Xiaomi wants to launch a smartphone every month or two.

    Snapdragon 425 for miui and 5.5 inch screen with 2gb ram will be a nightmare for using without lagging.

    Forgot about gaming, opening and switching between apps will be troublesome.

    1. Upcoming SD 450 will be a huge jump and true upgrade over current SD 400 series chipsets in terms of processing power, heating and battery life. It will be manufactured on 14nm process. Untill then better to skip all present day SD 400 series handset.

  7. why is xiaomi downgrading their newer devices? note 3 has 650 processor, note 4 has 625 and now note5 is with 435 !

    1. 625 is a newer generation chipset than 650. Lots of difference. However this 5A makes no sense.

  8. 2GB Ram is slowly becoming insufficient for miui 8 and 9 based naugat as it’s heavily skinned with so many features.
