First of all, Xiaomi Mi5c is one sleek and elegant device! Measuring just 7.1mm thin and weighing only 135 gr. Light, compact and one-hand usage friendly!

Not paying Qualcomm or Mediatek for the chip, Xiaomi has managed to spend all extra resources on built quality and display! Something I really like seeing, compared to Redmi devices.

Surge S1 is a mid-range chip and Xiaomi are not trying to hide it, however, on paper, it compares to Snapdragon 625. I will compare both in the full review coming next week.

Nothing outstanding regarding packaging, Mi5c is delivered in a small and familiar box.
Inside you’ll find an adapter, USB-C cable and a sim tray pin.

Applying curved glass while boasting superb screen-to-body ratio along with a front fingerprint scanner is a real winner in my books!

Built quality can even be compared to iPhone 7 and OnePlus 3T.

For navigation, you can use the physical home button and two capacitive keys along side it.


Conclusion for now….

Xiaomi Mi5c is a phone taking the company on a bold new path. Satisfaction is high amongst Xiaomi users for the specs, however, I never really loved the design, and built quality left a bit to be desired.
With Mi5c Xiaomi have produced the best built and most beautiful mid-range device to date.
Believe me, this little device packs quite a few surprises 🙂
