Vodafone and Indian smartphone maker Micromax today entered into a partnership to offer cashback of up to Rs. 2200 to their customers. On paper, the Redmi 5A looks far better than the Micromax Bharat 5, but we will wait to check both the devices out personally before we pass a judgment. It comes with a 5.2-inch HD (1280x720p) display on the front.

The performance on the Micromax Bharat 5 is going to be lacklustre as it has just 1GB of RAM. The device is powered by a 1.3 GHz quadcore processor coupled with 1GB RAM. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a 5MP camera on the rear with LED flash. On the front, it comes with another 5MP snapper.

The Micromax Bharat 5 has been priced at Rs.5,555 in India and will go on sale across retail stores across the country soon.

The big highlight of Micromax Bharat 5 is its 5000mAh battery, which is claimed to deliver up to 3 weeks of standby time. The front shows physical navigation keys at the base, while on the top, there is an earpiece and front-facing camera.

The smartphone comes with dual-SIM support along with a dedicated microSD card slot (expandable up to 128GB).

"With Bharat series, Micromax is helping the Indian consumers be digitally connected and make the experience more affordable and accessible". The battery of the phone is 5000mAh and that is why the tagline of the Micromax Bharat 5 smartphone is "The Power of 5". Now, the Bharat 5 is the successor to that series. "We hope that this will encourage and enable several million phone users to upgrade to a smartphone and enjoy a richer user experience with Vodafone SuperNet 4G", said Avneesh Khosla, Associate Director - Consumer Business, Vodafone India.

Vodafone customers can purchase any of the following new Micromax smartphones - Bharat 2 Plus, Bharat 3, Bharat 4and Canvas -1 and enjoy the cashback offers.

In terms of specifications, the smartphone features a 5.2-inch HD display with a 720x1280 pixels resolution. Will you pick it up over the Xiaomi Redmi 5A?
