A 3000mAh battery completes the package.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A sports a 5-inch HD IPS display with 720p resolution. To the front, it bears a 5-MegaPixel front-facing camera for crisp selfies. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a MediaTek chipset but the company has not specified the model number. Redmi 5A comes in Dark Grey, Gold and Rose Gold colour variants.

Given the straight-up comparison between Xiaomi Redmi 5A and Micromax Bharat 5, it is safe to conclude that the target audience for both phones is different. Overall, the phone is compact enough to use with one hand, but it does feel a little thick and a tad bulky to hold, which is probably due to the massive battery pack inside. The Bharat 5 comes with OTG support which means the Bharat 5 also doubles up as a powerbank.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A is a dual SIM phone, that supports nano SIM cards. Powered by 1.4GHz Quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor, it comes in two storage options - 2GB RAM + 16GB storage and 3GB RAM +32GB storage. The Micromax Bharat 5 runs Android Nougat. There's Adreno 308 GPU for enhanced graphics performance. Other connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and A-GPS.

Effective price of the Redmi 5A is now Rs 3,999 plus monthly recharges. The Bharat 5 too runs Android Nougat with a custom UI, but there is no information on the software updates so far.

In terms of design, the Bharat 5 looks similar to the predecessors with bezels all around the display, a selfie camera and earpiece on the top and navigation keys on the chin. Customers will get additional Rs 1,000 discount if they opt for Jio 4G tariff plan.

On Friday, Indian manufacturer Micromax launched its budget Smartphone Micromax Bharat 5 at a price of Rs 5,555 which puts it directly and squarely in a battle with Xiaomi's "Desh ka smartphone" which is priced at Rs 4,999 and will be available at Rs 3,999 for the first five million customers. The user interface is integrated with Redmi Note 4 is user-friendly and the learning curve is not complex. A discount on the phone is now valid for the first five million units.
