We’ve already reviewed the Xiaomi Mi A1 determined its stock Android and Bokeh pretty satisfying, as well as the battery. Now we’re tackling the twin, the Xiaomi Mi 5X, that include the same specs, but changes system to MIUI 8.5. This handset unboxed below costs $214 on GearBest.com.
Available in pink, gold or black, the iphone includes a slim metal body, measuring 7.3 mm in depth but it weighs 165 grams, though it actually feels lighter in the hand. Inside its box we find the common Xiaomi accessories: one small charger (5V/2A), USB Type-C cable, manual and SIM key, no headphones or case this period. This dual SIM phone includes a 5.5 \” Full HD IPS Liquid crystal display, the famous Snapdragon 625 CPU and 4 GB of storage.
Interestingly it\’s two storage versions, 32 GB and 64 GB, although the Mi A1 only had 64 GB. Both share the microSD card slot, the 3080 mAh battery as well as the twin back camera, with 12 MP sensors. In addition, it has PDAF, F/2.6 aperture, 4K video capture and optical zoom, including a telephoto lens. Selfies are taken which has a 5 MP camera. The extender may pull off Portrait/Bokeh captures and it runs using MIUI 8.5 in addition to Android 7.1.2, unlike the crisp and stock Mi A1 and its particular clean Android One.
Specs end that has a fingerprint scanner and 4G LTE. One interesting fact: both phones share precisely the same custom MIUI camera interface, despite the undeniable fact that Mi A1 runs Android One. At the outset sight, I’m a tad bummed by the incontrovertible fact that the Mi 5X has some Chinese menus, although I clearly selected English at setup. The browser points me towards the Xiaomi site one lots of times…
We’ll try to see past can we’ll be back using a full review soon. You\’ll find the product here.
