Have You Seen the New Xiaomi Mi 5? It’s a Beast

The Mi 5 is a classic Android flagship in the sense that its primary selling point is its overwhelming spec sheet. Xiaomi pairs Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB of memory, the latest 16-megapixel camera sensor from Sony (IMX298), and as much as 128GB of storage. It’s engineered to wow with its sheer speed and power, but it’s also extremely light and almost delicate in its design. The display up front is a 5.15-inch 1080p IPS LCD with almost no bezels on either side and an efficient use of the space above and below. The Mi 5 is Xiaomi’s first handset with a home button on the front, which also integrates a fingerprint reader. Framing that are a pair of capacitive keys: a multitasking button on the left and a back key on the right. Xiaomi’s Hugo Barra even dedicated a portion of the phone’s launch event to highlighting the Mi 5’s “forehead” — the space above the display — which is smaller than on Apple’s iPhone or Samsung’s Galaxy S flagships.” – TheVerge

Below you can look at the preview of the new Xiaomi’s flagship phone, the Mi 5. This is not my video, though. I find it interesting so I figured that I’ll share it here. So, here you go!

What do you think? I think it is really a good bang for anyone’s buck to get such high-end smartphone for a starting price of $260! The bad news is, when this phone arrive in my country (Indonesia), usually the price will go up to ~$60 of its original price. Don’t get me wrong, it is still a very good price for this kind of phone, but it just feels different when the price goes up.
