The Xiaomi Mi 5 is the Chinese manufacturer’s answer to most flagships, at a price that is very competitive. With a light and stylish glass build, it also stands out from the crowd in terms of design and ergonomics. It is packed with flagship level specifications such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and comes with handy tools such as an infrared blaster and its own UI overlay, at a mid-range price point.

OUR VERDICT

The Xiaomi Mi 5 falls just a little short in terms of gaming and graphics performance as compared to other devices with similar specifications, but makes up for it by offering good overall performance. The handy form factor and a stylish design makes it a good buy for someone looking for a good device but on a budget, and the bright screen is good for multimedia consumption.
