I thought the regular, 'lite' & 'pro' is the different in clock speed..

MSM8953 >> SD625 Octa-core up to 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53
MSM8953lite >> SD625 Octa-core up to 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53
MSM8953pro >> SD625 Octa-core up to 2.2 GHz Cortex-A53
MSM8953lite is the down-clocked of Snapdragon 625, also known as Snapdragon 450.

MSM8953 is Snapdragon 625.

MSM8953pro is the higher-clocked of Snapdragon 625, also known as Snapdragon 626.

You're right, thanks for the clarification! Apart from the clock speed different and added support for full HD+18:9 screen resolution, sd450 is very similar to the sd625/626 series.

dun really get wat u want to said though, like 4x is still able to connect to wifi, but its just that its a 2.4ghz band (means no dual band with 5ghz)

as for 5ghz band on redmi 5 i think probably dun have. (even though the official technical specs are not out yet)

Redmi 5 Plus should have 5G WiFi, since it uses Snapdragon 625 but don't know will Xiaomi stripped the feature off to cut down budget

when u say 5G wifi, it is actually 5GHz wifi.
802.11 wifi has 2.4GHz and/or 5GHz.

Basically, 5GHz provides faster data rates at a shorter distance. 2.4GHz offers coverage for farther distances, but may perform at slower speeds.

In other words, whether u use 2.4GHz or 5GHz, it should not affect how much data you use every month. Exceeding data plan is a function of how you had been using the phone for data.

Thanks for your reply. The reason why I have to use my mobile data is because my workplace only have 5ghz wifi which I can't connect to using redmi 4x

Current Redmi 4A bat is not working well. Worthwhile to repair or get new Redmi 5A?

Would be better to get the Redmi 5A, since the repair cost would likely be the same price as a new Redmi 5A.

Order the battery from online store and ownself repair by doing adequate research on YouTube & other DIY websites e.g. iFixit
Can go Sim Lim Square, ask around first. Then order parts online, get it replaced at a reputable service provider.
