The Mi 5 went on sale in April and the market has changed quite a bit since then. While Xiaomi is having a very successful year so far, especially with the mid-range Redmi series, the competition in the higher-end is unprecedented. In the wake of the Galaxy Note7 demise, the iPhone 7 release, and the V20 stepping up LG’s game, Xiaomi is shifting the spotlight back to the Mi flagships with its new Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus updates.

Xiaomi Mi 5s smartphone was launched in September 2016. The phone comes with a 5.15-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels.

The Xiaomi Mi 5s is powered by 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and it comes with 3GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage cannot be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Xiaomi Mi 5s packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 4-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

The Xiaomi Mi 5s runs Android and is powered by a 3200mAh non removable battery. It measures 145.60 x 70.30 x 8.25 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 145.00 grams.

The Xiaomi Mi 5s is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, USB OTG, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor, Gyroscope and Barometer.

Xiaomi Mi 5s is a great flagship with excellent build quality, performance, battery life, and imaging skills. It makes a few notable upgrades over the Mi 5 predecessor – a metal unibody, a bigger battery, a more power-efficient chipset, and a capable main camera.
