The Insanely Fast Xiaomi Mi5

The Xiaomi Mi5 is truly incredibly fast and responsive. And for that price you pay? It is just mind boggling. Powering the gorgeous Xiaomi Mi5 is the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor that is not only powerful, but extremely efficient, using less power while at the same time delivering ultimate performance. For the avid mobile gamers, the Adreno 530 GPU is 40% faster than its predecessor, delivering smooth and immersive performance.

Even the internal storage of 32GB is 87% faster than usual, resulting in almost zero lag when loading your media from the internal storage, the saving of your high resolution photographs from the excellent camera is also much faster.To make your multi-tasking even faster and switching between apps smoother, the Xiaomi Mi5 packs a total of 3GB dual-channel LPDDR4 RAM. This is an blazing fast smartphonethatdoes the unthinkable with its low price point and ultimate performance.

As Elegant as it is Powerful

A phone as powerful as the Xiaomi Mi5 is deserving of a gorgeous body that turn heads wherever it is used. The majority of the Xiaomi Mi5's body is made out of premium 3D glass, with soft curves at the edges that seamlessly end in the metal frame, causing an infinite-feeling when you hold the smartphone. Because of its svelte glass design, the glass used on the Xiaomi Mi5 is none other than the durable and strong Gorilla Glass 4. It feels solid, but incredibly light at only 129 grams.

Larger Battery in a Slimmer Phone

The Xiaomi Mi5 is not just lightweight, but it is also incredibly slim and compact to hold in the hand. Even with the large 5.15-inch display and its Full HD (1080p) resolution, the Xiaomi Mi5 is incredibly easy to use one handed. All of this, and yet the phone is able to hold a large 3000 mAh battery capacity through the use of smaller and higher quality components as well as a higher density battery pack.

Blur-free shots with the Xiaomi Mi5

Xiaomi knows that a smartphone's camera is just as important as other components, and that is why they have put their best camera yet into the Xiaomi Mi5. The camera used in the Mi5 is the Sony IMX298 camera module, a sensor that captures crystal clear images in all lighting conditions.

Even in low lighting conditions or in environments where you cannot get a steady shot, the built-in optical image stabilization (OIS) ensures that your picture will be blur-free. Even when you are recording videos the OIS kicks in to make your video less shaky.
