Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi5X

88% Xiaomi Mi 5X (Mi A1) Review: Best value budget phone
Source: KL Gadget Guy English
Overall, the 5X is one of the best budget phones I have ever tried so much so that it feels like you are getting a 2000 ringgit device for the price of only 950 ringgit which the 5X cost. Xiaomi has also produced the Mi A1 which is basically the 5X running on a pure stock android. If you do not like the MIUI interface that comes with the 5X, you can easily opt of the A1 which is the exact same specs but running on stock android. If you are looking to pick up the 5x, you can head over to GearBest as they are having a promotion on the phone which you can pick up for under RM1,000.

Xiaomi Mi 5X review

The Mi 5X is pretty straightforward - one of the most affordable smartphones in the upper midrange, where available, that is. It offers great dual-camera experience on the cheap and that can't be matched by any reputable maker.

Xiaomi Mi 5X Review
Source: Yugatech English
The Xiaomi Mi 5X is a mixed bag of goodies but not really a master of anything. It’s got a nice design, decent performance, and good hardware. But that’s just it — nothing really outstanding. Even the dual rear camera which is supposed to be its main selling point is only above average at best. It is only good on daylight shots and while the optical zoom feature of the secondary camera does the job well, we don’t see much use for it.

Xiaomi Mi 5x Review: Doing What Xiaomi Does Best
Source: Unbox English
Despite the disappointing numbers from its battery test, it’s not hard to see the value the Xiaomi Mi 5x gives. Again, you’re mostly seeing devices with the same processing package at a high price bracket, which already makes this phone from the Chinese brand worth a look. Perhaps, the only thing holding us back from giving it a glowing recommendation is the company’s status in the country and the lack of an official warranty. It’s still pretty tough to pass up though and you are getting an in-store warranty.

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.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
