We have already managed to provide a list of articles comparing the Xiaomi Mi 5 with the best smartphones if its time. And this beast beat all of its rivals in those comparisons. Especially the Xiaomi Mi 5 stood out among the Samsung Galaxy S7, Huawei Honor 8, and OnePlus 3. Thus the Mi5 was able to outrun top brands. If you wonder how Xiaomi, a 5-year old manufacturer could win the race, let’s take a quick look at the key features of the Xiaomi Mi 5.
It sports a 5.15-inch Full HD screen protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 4, Snapdragon 820 processor supporting Qucik Charge 3.0, Adreno 530 GPU, 3GB / 4GB RAM, 32GB / 64GB / 128GB ROM, 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture, 4-axis OIS, dual-LED flash, 4MP front camera, USB Type-C, and 3000mAh battery. As you see, this specs list is pretty nice. And thanks to it the Xiaomi could turn into a popular brand. But it is naïve to think we are praising a phone sporting only these features.
There is half a dozen of incredible specs making the phone too attractive. First, the phone supports 4K video recording option. Next, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is 4G-enabled. It was one of the first devices coming with fingerprint scanner. Finally, it comes with a ceramic housing. So $229.99 is a great price tag for a legendary phone.
