Would you really believe me if i say you could get a phone that is as powerful in capacity and stylish in design as the Samsung Galaxy S7, and only costs almost half the price. I am sure without doubt that you would most likely not want to continue reading this. Anyway, i bring you that exact phone which is the Xiaomi Mi5 and it is also runs on the android operating system. Read on the review and specifications below.
First of, i will have to say if you have any preconceptions about the build quality of low-cost Chinese phones cast them aside in this case. The Mi5 is completely solid in every way, and nothing about it would give the uninitiated any reason to believe it isn’t a high-end device. If you weren’t told, you could easily have thought it was designed by Samsung and it’s still a wonder how Xiamoi managed to build such a marvel. It has a modest screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, which, compared to phones like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 is a little low. The phone sports a USB-C connector which isn’t the regular charging port we are used to now. It has a very fast fingerprint scanner on the front of the phone just underneath the home button. The LG G5 or HTC 10 beats the Mi5 for sound, but it’s unsure most people would be able to hear much difference. It has a super-light aluminium frame and it is thin as it measures 144.50 x 69.20 x 7.25 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 129.00 grams. Also sports a strong Gorilla Glass 4 with a screen display size of 5.15-inch.
The Xiaomi Mi5 runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor,and at its reasonably modest price of around US$450 and £300 which is around NGN85,000 to NGN110,000 depending on which model you buy, the Xiaomi Mi5 is nothing short of staggering value for money. This is a phone that offers the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 3GB (or 4GB in the high-end model) of RAM and 32GB, 64GB or 128GB of storage.. It’s fast, really fast; in some benchmarks it shows up as being the fastest phone on the market, that is the pro model.
It’s also worth noting that this is a dual-SIM phone, a feature that’s popular in Asian markets. If you think because it’s a dual sim phone, the battery life won’t be great then you are absolutely wrong seeing as it the battery capacity is 3000mAh. The 4MP front and selfie camera is very good as the images are detailed and very wide enough to get enough people into the shot. It will also tell you your age and sex if you have ‘beauty face’ turned on. You can trust you will be best friend with this phone. The main camera which has a 16MP produces very great and impressive photos. Do bear in mind that just like the HTC one M7, it doesn’t have an expandable storage.
