    Answered By mkchawla884 | 3 years ago
    Redmi note 4 is a great phone . Good battery backup, Nice camera , excellent performance .
    If you look at the specs of zuk z2 plus , you will get amazed with it at its price point but it has several issues . Most common is overheating and its battery backup isn't good . Rest of its features are somewhat equal to note 4 .
    I haven't use A5 so I can't give u any suggestions about it
