Once again, Xiaomi has proven that they are still kings of the affordable smartphone segment. The Redmi 5 is a real good consideration for those looking for a value-for-money device. It is by no means perfect but it does what it needs to well especially in the battery life and day-to-day performance department.


This may be the lowest-end offering of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 but it is very worthy of consideration especially if you're looking for an good smartphone that doesn't eat into cash for your "rice bowl".
