Xiaomi devices are always a favorite. Even after a long time from the release date, the Mi5 still is a glowing star in the smartphone market. The smartphone that features some impressive specs as well as coming with a vivid design never failed to get into the hearts of the Xiaomi lovers. The front fingerprint sensor, NFC support Type-C USB all sweetened the specs sheet to a great extent. So, today, we’ve decided to present a brief review of the product for our readers. This will help you to get a better look at this Xiaomi flagship.
Mi5 comes with an impressive smooth design alongside the usual curve on the corners. In addition, Xiaomi also put the beauty of curves on the edges remembering the Samsung Galaxy Edge devices. It feels light on the hands, and we felt easiness in using even single handed. The 3D glass body is both elegant as well as it feels very comfy in the hands. Handling of the Mi5 is noticeable, and it is very much improved from the previous versions. It is available in 3 different color options as White, Gold, and Black.
Looking inside, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 1.8GHz 64bit Quad Core CPU that is even powerful than the previous models. Adreno 530 GPU is there in the GPU section to enhance the games as well as the processing speed on HD videos. From our tests, it was more than enough to smoothly run the Asphalt 8 and Call of Duty Modern Combat at the maximum graphics settings. The sound quality also seems to be good when compared to the previous Xiaomi devices. It feels like something improved far better from the recent hardware.
The MIUI 7 is overlayed on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with the support of 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. This was a nice move to provide the benefit of the smartphone even for the cheapness lovers. The storage variants are available if you want a better amount. Other features include GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Quick Charge 3.0, etc. on this 3000mAh non-removable battery smartphone. The quick charge feature also performs well slightly better than the recent Xiaomi devices.
Looking to the camera section, the 16.0MP sensor on the backside is capable of recording 4K videos. In the front, there is a 4.0MP shooter which is also not bad. The back camera utilizes PDAF and DTI technologies to provide good quality stable photos. So, in the camera part also, the Xioami Mi5 is an eye catcher.
