When talking about the fifth-gen Mi telephones, many think they should look and act identically. However all models from this line differ in each other. The Mi 5X is with no exception.

As for showing, the Xiaomi Mi 5X has nothing typical with the Mi 5C. Generally, the Mi 5X design is one of these attributes that confuse us making to think we are dealing with a top-notch model. In comparison to the Xiaomi Mi 5C this phone is larger. However this is not the best word to describe this handset. It’s better to use Lei Jun’s words said at the meeting – this is a trend design.
This device belongs to the category of budget smartphones and t arrives with a metal body using sandblasting process. The latter provides very appreciating feeling and no fingerprint could be left on it. Because of to a 2.5D arc glass curvature and the rounded edges the Mi 5X could be held in arms for a long period and We’ll not take tired even at the long-term single-hand operations.
The smartphone could be called thin and fairly light. It comes with only 7.3mm thickness and weighs 165 grams.
The Xiaomi Mi 5X packs a 5.5-inch Full HD screen made by Pegasus like the Xiaomi Mi Max 2.
It provides good-looking viewing experience because of to a pixel density of 403ppi, 450nit adjustable up to 1nit, and tons of customization settings. Say, you could adjust the screen colour temperature, effects, eye-protecting mode, and Therefore on.
The proximity digital camera, 5MP front shooter, and a speaker are located more than the panel.
The typical 3 Android buttons are placed Here the show. They are backlight.
The rear of the smartphone showcases the Xiaomi Mi 5X ships with a one-piece metallic back display. There are three color-options including rose gold, champagne gold, and black. However due to a pleasant design and build high quality the antenna ribbons are almost unnoticeable. By the way, the Xiaomi Mi 5X uses dual-U-shaped antenna design and style.
The dual-camera accompanied with dual-LED flash lighting is placed on the left upper corner. The sensor lens is a bit higher than the body. But thanks to a polished steel ring they are protected whenever the cameraphone lies face-up. The fingerprint sensor is on the rear as well. However I am not likely to discuss whether it’s better to place on front or back because it’s matter of taste and use habits.
Though the digital camera placement seems identical to the Xiaomi Mi 6, the rest of design and style elements differ from the last flagship of the manufacturer. Say, the Xiaomi Mi 5X comes with the regular 3.5mm audio jack. It’s on the bottom together with a noise cancellation microphone, USB Type-C port, and a speaker.
Same I could tell about audio out. Really great sound performance!
Another microphone is on the top alongside with an infrared camera allowing users to use the cameraphone as a remote control of home appliances.
At last, the energy button and the amount rocker are on the right, while the SIM card slot is on the left.
Xiaomi Mi 5X Experience
The Xiaomi Mi 5X is a Sd 625 CPU, which is famous as the other strong SoC among mid-range phones.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 CPU uses an octa-core A53 architecture that runs on 14nm tech process. This means we are dealing with an optimized SoC in terms of energy consumption, heat and life. The initially bunch of greater cores clock at 2.0GHz frequency. It supports quick charger and 4K video recording. The graphics card carries a model amount of Adreno 506. Of course, many can wonder why Xiaomi has chosen this chip rather of Sd 660. But the latter is in the exclusive period due to smartphones these types of as the Oppo R11 and Oppo R11 Plus. Also, the higher version of this cameraphone is gossiped to arrive with the SND660 in the nearest future. So the SND625 is the suitable suggests in the market currently. The Xiaomi Mi 5X is Additionally packed with a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM.
The aforementioned hardware helps the device to showcase good results in terms of overall performance. It scores over 60k at AnTuTu. This result can’t be compared with smartphones running on the Sd 835. But in comparison to other chips from the same category, the SND625 is the absolute champion.
The score in Geekbench is:
As for world testing, the Xiaomi Mi 5X was capable to provide good gaming experience at the other games.
Xiaomi Mi 5X Battery
The cameraphone is packed with a large capacity battery of 3080mAh. But it was disappointing after we saw a standard 5V2A (10W) energy adapter indoor the box. Though a lot of telephones yet come with this adapter, in comparison to 15W adapters it appears a bit weaker. On one hand, theoretically the Mi 5X need to support higher power charging head, but with no one from Xiaomi confirms this.
Anyway, when we were testing the device, there was remaining only 3% of energy. Whenever half an hour it reached to 26%. And the phone was fully charged in 123 minutes only.
As for energy consumption, we held a typical test whenever doing alternative actions on the phone during 30 minutes. As a result, there was remaining 56% of energy whenever 4 hours of testing.
Xiaomi Mi 5X Camera
This handset uses ‘wide-angle + telephoto’ dual 12MP scanner configuration with dual-zoom function. However, the camera sensors are not the same (Mi 6: IMX 386 + S5K3M3; Mi 5X: OV12A10 + OV13880).
The OV12A10 is OV’s fresh camera sensor with a f/2.2 aperture, 26mm focal length, 1/2.8 inches area, and a single pixel area of 1.25?m. The upcoming digital camera is the OV13880 with a focal length of 50mm. Thanks to this configuration the camera supports double optical zoom, portrait blur function, up to 4K30fps video capture, etc.
Look out the photo samples Here to find out how the Mi 5X shots. Personally, I think this is one of the best offers in the price range market in terms of digital camera experience.
Here is some night pics:
One of the suitable functions of the Xiaomi Mi 5X digital camera is the portrait mode with its optimized algorithm. The recognition of details is too proper. And though there are some rough blurred details, generally, it reveals pretty nice DOF effect.
As for the evening pics, it’s difficult to say the sensors do which required. In low-light condition pics the scanner noise reduction capability is acceptable, however in the complex scenes, a visible noise will appear. But the white balance is correct in the night time images.
And here is some 1080p videos:
Currently, the Xiaomi Mi 5X still runs on MIUI8 based on Android 7.1 and has only English and Chinese language. However the good news is that tyou could unlock bootloader and flash your favorite ROM. I recommend xiaomi.eu ROM. Or just wait for improve.
