Quick Review of Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus

The display quality is not high quality compared to the Xiaomi Mi 5s. The reason is the screen size. Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus has a bigger screen size than the previous version. But, still the display in Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus is good in quality.

Snapdragon 821 is the latest and powerful processor in the smartphone market. When it paired with the 4GB or 6GB RAM, it would be mind-blowing. I think 4GB RAM is enough for most of the users. Only for extreme gaming people, a 6GB RAM may needed. It has a large capacity battery. We can expect 2 days of backup on casual use.
