Video: Xiaomi’s Mi 5 new 4-axis stabilization outperform the Apple’s iPhone 6s optical stabilization

As we have told you in our previous article about 5 essential features of Mi 5 and now its time to take it even one step further
and show its powerpack performance specially in camera segment. We already know
what Xiaomi Mi 5 is capable of with Snapdragon 820 but other than that Xiaomi
seems to be particularly proud of is the new, 16-megapixel camera on the Mi 5

Xiaomi Mi 5 is one of the first phone to feature 4-axis
optical video stabilization (OIS). The Xiaomi Mi 5 features a Sony IMX298
sensor with PDAF and 6P lens protected by a sapphire glass lens. The smartphone
also has 4-axis OIS, which the company claims is better than the 2-axis OIS on
the iPhone 6s Plus. The 4-axis OIS offers better stabilization in vertical,
horizontal and even rotational motion.

In a video, Xiaomi demonstrated how good the camera of Mi 5
is compared to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Xiaomi showed off a test they
conducted to test the video stabilization of Mi 5 against the iPhone 6s and
iPhone 6s Plus. In the video, we can see the setup where all three smartphones
are placed with video recording turned on.

The assembly shakes while recording the video from the three
smartphones. The iPhone 6s that doesn’t have OIS obviously has a lot of shake,
the iPhone 6s Plus fares better but the Mi 5 offers the best performance with
relatively little shake. You can check out the video for yourself below.

By looking at the camera as it records video, though, one
can see directly how effective OIS alone is on the two phones, and the Xiaomi
Mi 5 beats it by a mile. Truly impressive.
