Video: Xiaomi Mi5 hands on


Hands on video with the white version of the Xioami Mi5 live from the media preview event in Barcelona.

To follow on with our Xiaomi Mi5 launch coverage today here is a hands on video of the white version of the phone from the media preview event in Barcelona.

The phone in the video is the Xiaomi Mi5 (I couldn’t find the Mi5 Pro), so it has 3GB RAM instead of 4GB RAM. The rest of the specifications are the same including the Snapdragon 820 chipset, 3000mAh battery, and 16 mega-pixel rear camera with 4 axis OIS.

    boring looks, ordinary specs, usual limitations… next please

      Yea right!

    • balcobomber25
      February 24, 2016

      I agree the looks are rather boring but…

      “ordinary specs”. The SnapDragon 820 and Sony IMX 298 with OIS are suddenly “ordinary”? I get you don’t like Xiaomi they are not for everyone but “ordinary” makes you sound like a troll.

        he or she is definitely a troll, 129g 3k battery, 4axis ois,snap 820 imx 298 not ordinary

        • realjjj
          February 24, 2016

          Actually in high end, even 1440p and 4GB of RAM are ordinary so one could say it’s bellow ordinary.

          • Assefa Hanson
            February 24, 2016

            Actually in high end even 700$ or more is ordinary so one could say this 300$ phone is extraordinary

        so, have you decided? will it be the Mi5 or the S8??

        • balcobomber25
          February 24, 2016

          Nope now I want to wait for the Meizu MX6 to come out. I wasn’t wowed by the Mi5 like I was with the S8, but the conundrum I have is MIUI vs Amgio. I love MIUI, I have mixed feelings about Amigo.

          • jimberkas
            February 24, 2016

            did you ever stumble across ZUK at the show? I know they didn’t have a booth, but I thought there would be some news on the Z2.

            • balcobomber25
              February 24, 2016

              Nope, never saw them. But I had limited time on the show floor and spent most of my time focusing on three things: Gionee S8, Windows Phones and Samsung S7.

          • Assefa Hanson
            February 24, 2016

            the s8 really wowed you? why(not implying its of lower quality, just want your reasons) i personally wouldnt buy the s8 UNTIL BLU REBRANDS IT :p

            • balcobomber25
              February 24, 2016

              I have always been a big fan of Gionee, one of my first Chinese phones that wasn’t a cheap knockoff was a Gionee. For me here is some things that I loved about the S8 and Gionee in general:

              – I love the loop metal design, it allows for a clean look around the entire phone without antenna lines or plastic panels in the back (think Iphone 6 or MX5). It also makes it stand out a bit when you look at it.

              – I love how it felt in the hand. It was slim and well made.

              – Storage/Memory. Gionee isn’t skimping here they offer 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal memory and it has an SD card for those that like that (not important to me).

              – Display. The S8 had one of the most beautiful AMOLED display’s I have ever seen.

              – The camera. I have never used a Gionee with a bad camera and some have been excellent (E7/E8). This is one area Gionee excels in. They use top notch components (sensors and lenses) and have good optimization. The camera on the S8 was one of the best and fastest I used at MWC (Galaxy S7 was amazing too).

              – Colors. With Xiaomi I will have to wait at least 6 months to get a color other than white, I am so sick of white phones.

              – LTE Bands – The Gionee rep told me it will have full support for both US and European LTE (including band 17 and 20).

              – Accessories. I love that Gionee gives you everything in the box you need to get started including at least one case (often times 2), earbuds, otg cable, screen protectors etc. It’s a nice touch.

            • Assefa Hanson
              February 24, 2016

              ok i understand, will you buy it as gionee or blu? stop influencing me now i feel like i want to buy one :/

            • balcobomber25
              February 24, 2016

              I want to wait for Meizu Mx6 to be announced before I make any decisions. My MX5 is still going strong so I don’t “need” a phone right now, just want one lol. Around May-July I’ll probably buy one. If the Blu version is out by then I’ll get that one, mainly because they are easier to find.

            • Assefa Hanson
              February 24, 2016

              thats what i was just about to get to, how the hel do you get your hands on a gionee, i envy you you know what you want im here getting dzzled and confused by all these smartphones i dot know what to pick, i know i want something that can manage gaming well and have kiler battery life, and probably be my phone for 1-2 years lol

            • balcobomber25
              February 24, 2016

              Very few resellers have new Gionee models and if they do they are incredibly expensive. When I do buy Gionees I usually get them in China when I go there for business.

            • Assefa Hanson
              February 25, 2016

              damn but the rom you gonna get a chinese one, you then root it?

            • balcobomber25
              February 25, 2016

              I buy it from the same shop usually, the guy there installs the Play Store, roots it and switches it to the English ROM.

            • balcobomber25
              February 25, 2016

              Yea when you buy a Blu or Gionee they give you everything you need in the box. Now the quality of those earbuds is never consistent. Some I have used are very good, others are decent at best. But here check out this unboxing to see everything they give:

            • balcobomber25
              February 25, 2016

              There is no saying when. Xiaomi won’t update just to update and say they have the latest. They update when they know it works across all their supported devices. It’s less work for them and better for the consumer in the long run. Companies like Samsung will release it to say they have it and then never fix any of the issues from it.

            • Simon
              February 25, 2016

              Sounds like a good strategy actually. I’m leaning more and more towards the Mi5, got until the summer to decide.

    i don’t get the point of this video… you just read the specs with the phone in the hand… great!

    you could browse the menu, see if there was new things, check the Locale and languages… open apps, switch between them… see how fast it is…

    but no…, you thought holding the phone while reading all the specs were enough…

    The shiny plastic is disgusting and cheap looking. Hope there will be matt and textured options.

    • realjjj
      February 24, 2016

      That’s glass.
      It is a bit plain looking , can break ,attracts fingerprints and in white is a bit too feminine but the shape is rather nice and should be comfortable.
      Ofc the front it like a LeTv with huge upper and lower bezels and a pimple on the chin.

  11. February 24, 2016

    One user just pasted screenshot from chinese offical webstore about LTE bands (http://bit.ly/1S0WbXG) but I have to say, I wasn’t able to find that info anywhere. So dunno…

    • balcobomber25
      February 24, 2016

      If that is true it’s a game changer and would mean support for virtually every network in the world.

      • Mi-fan
        February 24, 2016

        OMG that is it. THANK YOU FOR BAND 20, now everyone can buy it in EU GOD BLESS THE MILLET PRAISE LEI JUN

        • balcobomber25
          February 24, 2016

          I would hold off on your excitement until this officially confirmed lol.

          • February 24, 2016

            Exactly my words 🙂 Those pictures I posed have already been taken down (but there are still in mi cloud). If I could bet my money for bands, I would go it’s gonna be only 1/3/7 FDD-LTE.

            • balcobomber25
              February 25, 2016

              No I don’t believe sites like that until I hear it from the company themselves.

            • Simon
              February 25, 2016

              Fair enough, makes sense. If i’m in the UK – is B20 essential for 4G ?

            • balcobomber25
              February 25, 2016

              It depends where you live. EE operates on 1800 (3) and 2600 (7). Usually if you live close to the major city you don’t need Band 20, but if you live in the country side you do.

            • Simon
              February 25, 2016

              Oh great, I’m ok then. Thanks for clarifying 🙂

            • balcobomber25
              February 25, 2016

              Yea whenever I am in the UK I connect to EE and have full LTE coverage.

            • Simon
              February 26, 2016

              Apparently in the UK for chinese phones EE & Three are the goto networks. O2 & Vodafone are not so good.

          • Simon
            February 25, 2016

            See this for networks & LTE Bands:

            • balcobomber25
              February 25, 2016

              Yea I saw that but if you look at the full list of networks in () it says “uncertain”. I hope it is correct but until I see it official from Xiaomi themselves I don’t want to get my hopes up.

            • Simon
              February 26, 2016

            • balcobomber25
              February 26, 2016

              According to the Chinese website, it’s just 1,3 and 7. But that doesn’t mean they won’t have an international model with other bands as well.

            • Simon
              February 26, 2016

              Thanks for notifying. Like you said yesterday i’m pretty safe on EE with bands 3 & 7 – so should be alright.

              Apparently they have released an app to unlock the bootloader too. Wondering when people will try this.

      • February 24, 2016

        Indeed. He pasted another one (bit.ly/1UlYy7L). So fingers crossed (I would be happy even with 1/2 of those bands :))

    The shiny plastic is disgusting and cheap looking. Hope there will be matt and textured options.

      That’s glass.
      It is a bit plain looking (lots of empty space above the logo) , can break ,attracts fingerprints and in white is a bit too feminine but the shape is rather nice and should be comfortable.
      Ofc the front it like a LeTv with huge upper and lower bezels and a pimple on the chin.

    but I have to say, I wasn’t able to find that info anywhere. So dunno…

      If that is true it’s a game changer and would mean support for virtually every network in the world.

      So fingers crossed (I would be happy even with 1/2 of those bands :))

      I would hold off on your excitement until this officially confirmed lol.

      February 24, 2016

      Exactly my words 🙂 Those pictures I posed have already been taken down (but there are still in mi cloud). If I could bet my money for bands, I would go it’s gonna be only 1/3/7 FDD-LTE.

      Link to the original website?

    • balcobomber25
      February 25, 2016

      No I don’t believe sites like that until I hear it from the company themselves.

      Fair enough, makes sense. If i’m in the UK – is B20 essential for 4G ?

    • balcobomber25
      February 25, 2016

      It depends where you live. EE operates on 1800 (3) and 2600 (7). Usually if you live close to the major city you don’t need Band 20, but if you live in the country side you do.

      Yea whenever I am in the UK I connect to EE and have full LTE coverage.

    • balcobomber25
      February 25, 2016

      Yea I saw that but if you look at the full list of networks in () it says “uncertain”. I hope it is correct but until I see it official from Xiaomi themselves I don’t want to get my hopes up.

      Apparently in the UK for chinese phones EE & Three are the goto networks. O2 & Vodafone are not so good.

    • balcobomber25
      February 26, 2016

      According to the Chinese website, it’s just 1,3 and 7. But that doesn’t mean they won’t have an international model with other bands as well.

      Thanks for notifying. Like you said yesterday i’m pretty safe on EE with bands 3 & 7 – so should be alright.

      Apparently they have released an app to unlock the bootloader too. Wondering when people will try this.

    I have high hopes with MI5 but damn this phone looks ordinary. Did I heard it right that it’s a single SIM? No finger print scanner as well?

    Anyway most important with me is the Camera and the Audio. But now I doubt it very much if it has Hi-Fi capability.

    • February 24, 2016

      Then you heard wrong – dual sim, fingerprint scanner included.

      • Twister12
        February 24, 2016

        OK. I stand corrected. Finger print scanner is in that home button.

    1080p@ 60fps/240fps or nothing. awaiting mi6… features zero only play games. I can run all games with old cpu.

    Andi, thanks for the video, and congrats for being able to pronounce “xiaomi/小米” better than the guy who did the mi 5 presentation!! Everyone else says “shao-mee” or something similar, horrible 😀

    What’s in the Manual settings in the camera? What’s the longest exposure possible? Is there a time-lapse? I love long exposure shots..

    Not too impressed really.. Would have preferred to see the black option. White phones (apart from iPhones) just don’t look as good as black phones IMO.

    Keeping my 16GB Mi Note Black for now I guess. Maybe I’ll check eBay periodically for a 64GB Mi Note Pro in Black.. You never know, I might get lucky and score a bargain!

    Ok then,so some throttling http://www.anandtech.com/show/10088/xiaomi-mi5-hands-on
    The top 2 cores fully loaded will be almost ok,more than that and it goes downhill fast.
    The GPU will throttle plenty (hopefully not to half the perf), but on 1080p it will be plenty fast anyway.

    It also means that the low end version , is likely to overheat very little.
    vs A72 , Qualcomm’s core seems to be losing rather badly in perf/power, really sad that we are seeing lots of A53 SoCs on 16ff but not much with A72 so far.
