There are a number of flagship devices that have been announced or released recently. While that does offer top tier customers a choice, they all do come touting similar high flagship prices. However, back at MWC 2016, Xiaomi took to the stage to introduce their latest handset, the Xiaomi Mi 5 and in accordance with Xiaomi's general philosophy, this is a smartphone which packs a punch in terms of specs, but also comes with a much more affordable price than most of the other high-profile handsets.
If you need a reminder on the specs, the Xiaomi Mi 5 comes equipped with a 5.15-inch display, which makes use of a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the Xiaomi Mi 5 comes packing 3GB RAM and is powered by the latest offering from Qualcomm, the 64-bit Snapdragon 820 Quad-core processor. In terms of storage, this is a smartphone which comes equipped as standard with 32GB internal storage. While in terms of cameras, the Xiaomi Mi 5 comes loaded with a 16-megapixel rear camera which is nicely coupled with a 4-megapixel front-facing option. The Xiaomi Mi 5 comes powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and comes running on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), by way of Xiaomi's own MIUI 7 skin. Additional features include dual-SIM, Quick Charge, USB Type-C port and a front-positioned fingerprint scanner. In terms of network compatibility, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is equipped to work on 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100 MHz and 4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz.
So all in all quite a good phone for the money. However, if you are after an even better price, then GearBest is currently running a promotion where a select number of Xiaomi Mi 5 handsets are available for only $392.89. So while this is a limited availability deal, grabbing an Mi 5 at this price is certainly worth it.

Some of these discounts come in the form of straight flash sales, while you can also bag a bargain by buying combined products or picking up one of the 'star picks'.
