The Xiaomi Redmi 8A dual is now officially available in Nepal. If you are looking for an entry-level Android smartphone that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, you may very well want to look at this phone. The price of the Xiaomi Redmi 8A Dual is Rs. 12,999 and it comes feature-loaded, especially considering the price.
Xiaomi Redmi series of phones has always provided great value for money- the Redmi 8A Dual is no different. Here is a quick run-down of the specs of the Redmi 8A Dual.

For a phone that costs under Rs. 15,000, I personally think the phone is really packed with features. If you are someone who is looking to buy your first Android phone or if you are upgrading from a feature phone, you will definitely love the phone.
Anyone who is looking to buy a new phone for Social Media usage or for casual gaming will certainly be happy with this phone. The Snapdragon 439 SoC handles most of the apps on the Play Store with ease. 3GB of onboard storage should be plentiful for the use-case as well.
And while the 13MP rear camera alongside the 2MP depth sensor may not be on par with midrange phones from the likes of Xiaomi and Samsung, they do a decent job at capturing quality images. In broad daylight, you shouldn’t have any problem taking good photos. However, in low-light, you can expect the phone to struggle. But, at the given price point, the same can be said about every other phone.
The 5000mAh battery is another talking point of the Redmi 8A Dual. The 5000mAh battery should easily last you more than 2 days with normal usage. The screen has a HD+ display and a very frugal Snapdragon SoC which should both help in great battery endurance on this phone. Also, the phone uses USB-C for charging which is really good to see. The Redmi 8A also supports fast-charging at 18W. However, you will find only a 10W charger in the box.
All-in-all, the Xiaomi Redmi 8A is a really good phone in its segment. Priced at Rs. 12,999, the phone will be a great choice for those who are looking for an entry-level Android phone that won’t break the bank.
