The Mi A3 is the only smartphone amongst the three which gets a Super AMOLED display but misses out on Full HD+ resolution that the competitors feature. It also gets an in-display fingerprint scanner.

In terms of RAM and storage options, the Realme 5 offers an 8GB + 128GB variant, compared to the other two smartphones that limit at 6GB + 128GB storage.
In terms of optics, the Mi A3 gets a triple camera setup with a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor. The Realme 5 Pro also gets the same primary sensor, but with a quad-camera setup. Fairly old in terms of launch cycle, the Redmi Note 7 Pro gets a dual-camera setup with a 48MP primary sensor.
For selfies, the Mi A3 gets a 32MP sensor, which is the largest sensor available currently for the front camera.For the ones who love stock Android experience, the Mi A3 runs on Android 9.0 and is a part of Google's Android One Program.
