Xiaomi Mi 5 Information:

The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been announced during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. This is Xiaomi's all-new flagship for 2016, and is a direct successor to the Mi 4 which was introduced back in 2014. Now, the Mi 5 actually resembles the Mi Note / Mi Note Pro phablets more than to Mi 4, and this is the first Xiaomi-branded smartphone to sport a physical home button below the display. That home button actually doubles as a fingerprint scanner, and the highest-end model (3GB RAM + 128GB storage) of this handset is actually called the Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro. Speaking of which, let's take a look at its specifications.

This handset sports a 5.15-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB / 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB / 128GB of internal storage. This smartphone is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU for graphics. The 16-megapixel 4-axis OIS camera is placed on the back of the device, and a 4-megapixel (2um pixel size) snapper is available up front. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on this device, and on top of it you'll find Xiaomi's MIUI 7 operating system. The Xiaomi Mi 5 measures 144.6 x 69.2 x 7.3mm, while it weighs 129 grams.

Xiaomi Mi 5 Editor Rating:

The Xiaomi Mi 5 is certainly a compelling smartphone. This device is half the price of Samsung's all-new flagships, for example, and it is certainly something to consider if you're on a budget or are simply not looking to spend as much cash. The Mi 5 sports top of the line hardware, and the fact it doesn't feature a QHD display might even be an advantage to some of you, considering the benefits in the performance and battery life department. All in all, Xiaomi Mi 5 is a welcomed addition to the smartphone space, and it will be interesting to see how many units will Xiaomi going to be able to sell this year, this is certainly a device which will be appealing to quite a few people despite its limited availability.
