Successor of mi 4

  • This phone has arrived nearly 2 years after the launch of its predecessor
  • · The Xiaomi Mi 5 looks like a properly refined Mi 4.
  • · Xiaomi had the white flavour only of the glass/metal base version while the exclusive ceramic version will be sold in black only.
  • · The Mi 5 may feature a bigger screen, a more powerful chipset, and better camera, but it managed to shed a good 20g off, for a total weight of the incredible 129g. The Mi 5 feels great in the hand, very lightweight, and yet extra solid.
  • · Processor switched to snapdragon 810 to snapdragon 820 on the new offering.
  • · Brought new variants into play with 32 GB , 64 GB and 128 GB on the platter.
  • · Normal edition doesn’t have much change in RAM than the Mi4
  • · Mi5 will be based on android 6 whereas the Mi4 is still running on the outdated android 4.4.4.
  • · Fingerprint scanner below the display takes about 20 seconds to set up and instantly recognizes your finger from then on. Unfortunately, it isn’t always on, and you need to either click the home key or use the power button to wake up the screen before scanning your fingerprint in a split second (come on Xiaomi really?)
