Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi5X

Xiaomi Mi 5x Unboxing; Quick Review: Easy on the Wallet
Source: Unbox English
If there’s one brand that always comes up, whether it’d be on reviews for the latest phone release or just leaks for devices to come, it has got to be Xiaomi. We can’t really blame you, they made a significant impact when they came to our shores in an official capacity, and a good portion of our readership still clamors for the bang-for-your-buck product from the Chinese brand. Thankfully, online retailers still keep stock of the phones from the popular brand and one of their latest devices just arrived at HQ. Today, we’re going to be taking the Xiaomi Mi 5x for a quick go-around before it goes in for its full review.
