The Xiaomi Redmi 5 is an impersonation of how a low-end smartphone should look and act. Xiaomi’s Redmi series has been always known for its amazing devices. They have always carried the trendiest features. But what’s more amazing, these phones have always priced quite low. When the Redmi 5 was out, it made many Mi haters cease talking. Not in vain, it’s considered to be one of the best smartphones in the entry-level market. As for now, it meets the highest demand towards customers who are looking for good but cheap models. So the deal that allows you to get your hands on it for $104.66 should be taken as a gift from the heavens.

To pay a hundred bucks is a piece of cake. But what will you get for it? The selling point of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 is its appearance. The phone uses a 5.7-inch full-screen with an HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. This is the first low-end smartphone coming our way from a top brand and carrying a full-screen. That’s why this device has been met with grace. Apart from this, the Redmi 5 is packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chip, which carries the title of the best low-end chip on the market. It is capable of providing a smooth and stable performance due to the 14nm process node and A53 octa-core architecture at 1.8GHz. The 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage don’t sound attractive, but thanks to an optimized system they are sufficient to meet your daily tasks.
Obviously, this is an entry-level smartphone. But the manufacturer has made a number of improvements in the camera software and both camera modules on the phone act like an SLR camera. At last, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 is packed with a 3300mAh battery. An actual test has shown 12 hours and 36 minutes of battery life.
