With the Redmi 5A in picture, it looks to be a better choice than the Redmi Y1 Lite and the Nokia 2. It has more RAM and storage at the same price but, Nokia 2 continues to rule the battery department.

If stock Android is your thing and you can deal with a much slower chipset, then the Nokia 2 makes more sense. But, if you go by performance stand point and nothing else, the Redmi 5A is the clear winner here.
