      This is towards the end of the good old times where even budget phones had aluminum. Redmi 3 was full aluminum, then Redmi 4 had slightly less and this one only had a bit of aluminum then Redmi 6 got completely rid of it. I hope that comes back, the Redmi 12 is a good sign because it has a glass back instead of plastic. Even Redmi A3 is rumored to get a glass back, so hopefully aluminum sides are next with Redmi 13. Like the Galaxy A53 with plastic sides and plastic back went to Galaxy A54 with plastic sides and glass back now A55 will come out with aluminum sides and glass back.

          Due to unluck for my clumsy situation my phone accidentally dropped at very high place so the lcd crack and cost me half of the price phone.So I temporarily using this Redmi 5 until got enough money to repair my phone.However, the redmi 5 camera actual not bad, it kinda mid but good for normal capture purpose.The performance of the phone is also quite good.Yeah the battery capacity kinda small but it can last long half a day if you not playing a games.Suitable for being a backup phone ngl.

            Is the camera good ? also it supports g cam?im about to buy a used one..!my other option is motorola e13 because i really need a value for money mobile 😊 personally i prefer redmi even if it's old.

                I used this phone 2 years ago, I used the 16 GB model with 2 GB RAM. Not a very good phone but, it's usable.

                            Just installed dotos 5.2.1 with gaps. Its A11 based, but mutch smoother than LOS 19.1 on A12. No lags or stutters, compleete bare minumum of apps. Great option to have less googled fone :)

                                Anonymous, 06 Jun 2022After update to android 8.1 is lagging af.Yes

                                  I had used Redmi 5 2GB/16GB for a year. It is quite good in this price range. In this phone I had storage of only 9.8GB which is quite less. After the latest updates in 2022 the phone is lagging terribly & it has freeze, hang problems. Software updates are not good in this. Many bugs are there.
                                  Due to low RAM & space very few apps we can use in this.
                                  Camera Quality is OK, Sound Quality is also OK, Battery life reduces after 2-3 months, & it will last for 1 day.
                                  But if you have to attend Meets, Calls on ZOOM, Google Duo, Meet for 1-2 hours I will not suggest to buy this.
                                  Screen quality is quite lower.
                                  I had purchased this phone 3 years ago at Rs.8999 & still it is working.
                                  It is OK to buy if you want an alternate mobile only for Calling, Camera & Torch. But I will prefer to go with 3GB OR 4GB.
