Xiaomi Redmi 5A vs Redmi 4A vs Redmi 4:
1.There are no such differences between 5A and 4A. Both the devices have a plastic body, no fingerprint sensors and also in terms of the specification they are identical. Although there is one noticeable difference which is the dedicated microSD slot, which is missing from both the 5A’s Chinese variant and Redmi 4A as well. The Redmi 4A launched at a price of Rs. 5,999 and the same configuration can be found in the Redmi 5A for Rs. 4,999. There is a catch the first 5 million units will be available for that price then the price will become same as 4A. So if you can get the device at 5K that will be value for money.
2.Now if you are thinking to buy the 3GB and 32GB of the 5A then we suggest you have a look at Redmi 4. In terms of specification, the Redmi 4 offers better hardware option in 7k. As the Redmi 4A has much more to offer: 4100mAh battery, Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor, Metal unibody with 2.5D curved display and fingerprint sensor but at 7k you’ll get the (16GB+2GB) variant.
