Xiaomi is well-known for making quality handsets and selling them at a lower cost than their competitors. The Redmi range is essentially the company's mid-range collection of devices, but that doesn't mean that these phones are of a lesser quality.

The latest Redmi phone to go on sale in South Africa is the Redmi 4A. The 4A has a 5-inch HD display with 1280 x 720 resolution, amounting to 294 pixels per inch. Internally, the phone is packing a Snapdragon 425 64-bit quad-core processor and runs on the latest MIUI 8 OS - Xiaomi's skin, which runs on top of Android 6.0.
