At the most wallet-friendly level, we have the Redmi 6A. The 6A is a capable phone for someone who just wants a quality mobile phone that has the essentials. You get a 5.45" LCD screen with 1440 x 720 resolution, a 13MP rear and 5MP front camera, and 16GB of storage. Powering it is a Mediatek Helio quad-core 2.0 GHz CPU and 2GB of RAM.

If you opt for the Redmi 6, you’ll gain on both power and optics. The quad goes to octa-core with 3GB of RAM, and dual-rear 12MP+5MP cameras sport a 1.25µm pixel size for improved low-light photography. Storage gets a boost, as well, doubling to 32GB and, with the addition of a rear fingerprint sensor, your files will be more secure.

Moving up a tier to the Redmi 5 Plus, we see an increase in major specs and design. The Redmi 5 Plus features a 2.5D curved glass body to complement the 5.99" LCD with 2160 x 1080 resolution and 64GB of storage. Powering it is a Snapdragon 625 octa-core 2.0 GHz CPU and 4GB of RAM. The single rear 12MP camera keeps the 1.25µm pixel size, and adds a wide-angle lens, giving you the ability to capture more in every shot. On the flip side, the 5MP front camera boasts an LED light for improved selfie quality.

A second rear camera is added, giving you a dual 12MP+5MP setup, and the front camera goes all the way up to 13MP. The front camera’s lens is also capable of taking wide-angle shots, transforming those selfies to we-fies.

The rear cameras feature a 1.4µm pixel size and DPAF (Dual-Pixel Auto Focus), for near-immediate focusing of your subject.
