The practical phone

The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is as cheap as they come. I think it is one of the cheapest 5.5 inch Android Smartphone from Xiaomi, aside from the Xiaomi Redmi series. It is fairly weak with only a Snapdragon 425 chipset and 2 GB RAM, so it is not for heavy users. But it does offer decent enough performance for day to day tasks.
