It gives the feeling of being the same configuration as that of the Xiaomi Mi A1, but it changes the aperture. The Mi A1 has an aperture of f / 2.2, while the Redmi Note 5 has an aperture of f / 1.9.

The Redmi Note 5A, Redmi Note 5A Prime, and the Redmi 4A have a single 13-megapixel sensor and f / 2.2 aperture. In this sense, the camera of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 stands out thanks to the opening.

The USB is what makes the difference in this section. And, while the Note 5A, Note 5A Prime, and Redmi 4A are mobile with USB 2.0. The Xiaomi Note 5 and the Mi A1 have USB Type-C. This allows the load to be somewhat faster and, in addition, increases the speed of data transfer.


Although all the Xiaomi of this comparative run with Android as an operating system, there are some differences. And that is, Xiaomi has the MIUI customization layer, typical of the house. Which runs in version 8.0 on all devices … except one.

The Mi A1, which is outside the family ” Redmi ”, incorporates pure Android thanks to the Android One platform. The My A1 has Android 8.0 Oreo. Something that arrived a few months ago, while the rest of devices have MIUI 8.0.

Here goes it tastes. If you prefer pure Android, the My A1 is very interesting. If you want to try MIUI, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is postulated as one of the best phones in the mid-range.
