The Xiaomi Redmi 5A clearly beats the Cloudfone Thrill Snap in most aspects. The latter managed to score a tie in some areas, but the Redmi 5A is the obvious winner here.


For starters, the Redmi 5A runs on a faster and more efficient chipset. It also comes with twice as much RAM capacity when compared to the Thrill Snap.


Xiaomi’s handset also runs on a more dated version of Android, has smaller dimensions and lighter weight, plus a noticeably bigger battery. The Redmi 5A also has 4G LTE, which is a necessity in today’s fast-paced world.

  1. Mas mura nga but not that big of a margin. Also unless it is the Helio soc from Mediatek, The Snapdragon has this beat, even the paltry 1gb ram is no match. Redmi 5A still trumps it.
