The CPU is 200% faster and consumes 50% less power than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 810.

Whatever you can probably think of, Qualcomm's newest chipset has it. This includes 4K video capture, playback, and external display support; all cellular connectivity standards in operation plus the latest in Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, and VoLTE standards; the Haven security technologies suite with services such as SafeSwitch (theft prevention), Sense ID (3D fingerprint tech), and StudioAccess (content protection). It's the most competent mobile chipset built to date, and its presence in most of this year's flagship Android phones, such as the Mi 5, is only appropriate.

Sony Camera 

Other than Hardware, what’s make Mo 5 special and makes its Stand out of crown is the latest Sony IMX298 16MP camera with high definition sensor, PDAF autofocus and the the first ever deep trench isolation sensor (DTI) which Xiaomi says will prevents light from leaking to give clean colour separation. The camera also has high shutter speed and the first ever 4-axis OIS which meaning that the phone can not only take high quality photos of moving objects but also stabilises an image if your hands gets a little too shaky.

DTI (deep trench isolation sensor) puts small, light-proof dividers between pixels to prevent crosstalk and light from bleeding onto nearby pixels, reducing color inaccuracy. It's the most modern method available, and it's used by Apple in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The Mi 5 supports 4K video recording. It also sports a 4-Ultrapixel front camera, with 2-micron pixels. Both cameras feature an f/2.0 aperture. 


As far as design is concerned, the Mi 5 has borrowed quite a few elements from the Mi Note launched last year. With a thickness of only 7.52mm, Xiaomi has managed to keep the smartphone slim and also relatively light (129 grams). It boasts what Xiaomi calls 'Zirconium 3D ceramic body' with curved edges, which enables the 'transition from glass to metal seamlessly'. There are three colors to choose from -- white, gold and black. Where the white and black variants feature a polished finish, the gold variant features a crisscrossed texture finish.


One of the talking points is the dual-SIM capabilities, which is still something of a rarity among flagship devices. The Mi 5 also features 4G LTE support with support for VoLTE, speeds up to 600Mbps and LTE-A. It also has an IR Blaster, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1 and lastly full-feature NFC. In other words, the Mi 5 is not only useful for making payment, but can also be used for other sorts of transactions including ticket bookings and recharges.
