But Micromax and Xiaomi recently launched two new phones that truly standout in the crowded market like India.

If the latest report is anything to go by, Indian fans will get Rs 1,000 cashback on purchasing the "Desh ka Smartphone" touted as the Xiaomi Redmi 5A.

After the sale crosses five million customers, the Redmi 5A 2GB RAM/16GB will cost you Rs 5,999.

Let's first address the pricing of both phones, which is essential in this comparison.

Despite competitive hardware, it's tough to topple the Rs 4,999 priced Redmi 5A from Xiaomi.

Telecom press leak reveals smartphone's 5.7-inch HD+ display

Availability: The Micromax Bharat 5 will be available only at offline retail stores whereas Xiami Redmi 5A will be available at e-commerce portal Flipkart.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A has a sturdy shell with a metallic matte finish and a 5-inch HD LCD screen that fully compliments the overall design.

The only drawback of this offer is the benefit of Rs 1,000 would be available only after a year and potential customers will have to pay full Rs 4,999 upfront to buy Redmi 5A. The phone is similar in design to its predecessors - Bharat 3 and 4. There's a 5.2-inch HD IPS display with standard bezels surrounding it at the front.

These days, a good camera becomes a great USP for phones. There's a 5MP front camera with ƒ/2.0 aperture, Selfie countdown, and Face recognition. If Micromax has equipped the Bharat 5 well, they might just turn the tables on Xiaomi and turn their luck around.

Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core processor, Redmi 5A delivers fast and smooth performance. Redmi 5A available in Dark Grey, Gold, and Rose Gold colors. The rear panel is made out of plastic and sees the Micromax logo in the centre and a camera with LED Flash on the top left corner. The Redmi 5A gets its strength from decent 3,000 mAh battery offering 8 days of standby time and runs on Android Nougat operating system wrapped under MIUI 9. Redmi 5A stands as a testament to Xiaomi's continued efforts to offer high-end technology while making it accessible to as many people as possible. Everything else on the Micromax Bharat 5 is pretty average and nothing to shout about.
