Mi5 Specifications, Reviews and Price

Xiaomi Mi 5 user review 

Introduction: –

Hey, guys, here I’m going to describe you a complete specification, reviews, pricing and complete buying guide review of Xiaomi Mi5. Xiaomi Mi5 is an android smartphone and it was launched in 2016, January.


Design: –

Firstly let us talk about the design factor of the device. So, the device has a glass back, which is 3D glass and, which is curved towards the side to make this a more handy device. And other than that it is also having some metal finish at the sides and yes, that basically makes it one of the flagships, because this is the most common combination which we see in flagships devices. So yes we have it on this device and that should pretty much ensure that device feels pretty premium.

Other than that, this phone also comes in three variants which are the white, black and gold variant and according to me, all three of
they look tremendous.


Talking about the display on the Xiaomi Mi5, we have a full HD 5.15inches display which protected by corning gorilla glass 4. So again protection shouldn’t be any kind of a problem here and that is again a nice thing.


Fingerprint & Ports:-

Other than that, the device also has fingerprint scanner which instead of the back side of the devices, which is actually the most preferred place to place the fingerprint scanner by Xiaomi Mi5. It is placed at the front side where the Samsung capacitive keys have to be placed.

So, along with all these features, we also have some features which stand out to be NFC, IR blaster, USB-c and finally, the quick charge 2.0. Quick charge 3.0 is not included in this device, and except for that 2.0 quick charge is included. but that should be any kind of a problem because 3.0 is fast but 2.0 is nothing of less deal.

Talking about the software of the device, we have MIUI 7 based on Android marshmallow, this is the first phone which Xiaomi Mi5 brings in to have Marshmallow out of the box.


Camera features of Xiaomi Mi5

So, talking about the camera sensor, we have a 16MP sensor at the back which has 4 axes optical image stabilization. So, generally, according to Xiaomi Mi5, the smartphones have two axis stabilization and that, like, doesn’t give much of stabilization and that, they because of this reason, they included like 4 axis stabilization and this should definitely help in stabilizing the image much more.

Camera Specs Of Xiaomi Mi5

So, along with this camera, we also have a 4 ultra pixel front camera which HTC first used in there, I don’t know, one M8 device and that actually failed as a rear camera. But this time around Xiaomi Mi5 has decided to put in the front camera, and that should again ensure that this would take good low light images and that is a nice thing, at least for the front camera.

Processor & Memory: –


Now, talking about the main feature why this phone is actually so much hyped about, we have the snapdragon 820 processor inside along with the ADRENO 530 GPU. as you must know, the Snapdragon 820 processor is a quad-core processor and out of the 4 cores that we have inside this processor, 2 cores are based on a higher frequency which is 1.8 GHz and 2 are on the less frequency which is 1.6 GHz.


Other than that, this device has 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. And the storage is non-expandable. So, here is the reason why people in India are actually disappointed by the Xiomi Mi5 and that actually is because of the pricing, The Xiaomi Mi5 which is launched here in India is the base model of the mi5 and out of the 3 variants, that means it is the least variants.

Note- One more fun fact right here is that the 64GB model of the Xiaomi mi5 which comes with 2.15GHZ higher clock frequency is priced

Battery: –


More impressive is battery life the Xiaomi Mi5 friend for 92 full hours before trying for some charging and recharging is among the fastest. this device is actually not that good you have a 3000 mAh battery but it just drives the phone with around three hours of screen on time with 4G networks on wi-fi, I got about 1 n a1/2 hours are small that’s just about it. it’s actually quite average. the phone does support quick charge 3.0 and with the support charger, you can get a full charge within one and half hours with the window charge the phone charges in around 2 hours.

Price: –

Xiaomi Mi5  32GB: – @flipkart  Rs. 24,999 ($ 385.61)

Xiomi Mi5 32GB: –  @mysmartprice  Rs. 22,999 ($ 344.95)

Conclusion: –

So, according to me, if you having a budget of around 25thousand, you should definitely go for it and it is the best phone for buying this price point.
