I'd like a phone with decent battery life, preferably USB-C (not a deal breaker), an SD Slot, and no bigger than 6 inches. Which would be my best bet at the moment? The Redmi 5?
A great search tool
can you add to your requirements? any idea of budget?
want pure android or MIUI (xiaomis android version)?
are bands 3 and 20 a must for you? (kimovil is good for checking the bands on service providers in ireland)
whats a decent battery for you?
from what youve posted so far the A1 or A2 would suit, which have android one as well
the redmi 5 has a poor enough chip, doesnt have band 20 and runs miui, which is reflected in the price.
do you mean the note 5 ?
