Xiaomi Redmi 8A-Another New Model By The Redmi Series

Redmi is known for making great phones at affordable prices. The company easily competes with devices of other companies by giving the consumer good quality of features in their device. The Xiaomi company’s smartphone easily overshadows the smartphones of other brands at the same price.

The Redmi 8A launching on September 25, isn’t an exception here also for an expected price of around Rs.5000-Rs.8000.

Although the phone is good it also has some flaws with it. Here is the list of Pros and Cons of the smartphone


  1. It has got a bigger battery life of 5000 mah as compared to any other smartphone of this price range.
  2. It has got a bigger display size of 6.2″ (15.75 cm).
  3. The screen resolution is 720 x 1520 pixels.
  4. It has got 81.01 % as a screen to body ratio.
  5. It has an expandable capacity to 512 GB


  1. The processor of this smartphone is considerably weak as of the current generation of smartphones. (Qualcomm Snapdragon 439)
  2. The graphics processor is also weak (Adreno 505)
  3. The pixel density is also less 271 PPI.
  4. The device is also slightly bulky but that can be neglected because of the bigger battery.

Now I am going to compare this product with another Xiaomi product (Redmi 5)
