Xiaomi Mi5 Benchmarks

Xiaomi Mi5 Benchmarks

xiaomi mi5 benchmarks

For those of you wanting to see how the standard version of the Xiaomi Mi5 performs, here are a few benchmarks I have just ran.

Earlier today I received the Xiaomi Mi5. This standard version of the phone has a 1.8Ghz Snapdragon 820, 3GB RAM and 32GB memory. Those specs are slightly downgraded when compared to the Xiaomi Mi5 Pro, but the performance is excellent none the less.

I’m still getting to grips with the Xiaomi Mi5 and it is too early to tell you things like how fast the phone charges or how good the camera is, but these benchmarks should give you an idea of the power in this phone.

For now I have only ran Antutu, Geekbench, GFXBench and 3DMark.

For those of you wanting to see the phone in all it’s glory check out my Xioami Mi5 unboxing video here.

    Great phone with great reviews. Can’t wait for the price to drop.

  • Stiffmah

    That geekbench score actually aint that great … but the other scores are awesome!

  • balcobomber25

    It only got 110,000 on Antutu?? WTF I was hoping for at least 120,000!!

    • Booyakasha

      It’s the lite version, with an underclocked Snapdragon 820 and slower RAM

    • MaxPower

      Lol at you and the guy below

      • Assefa Hanson

        i know right lololololol

      • balcobomber25

        What makes my comment great is the people who take it seriously lol.

    • Roberto Tomás

      he has the lite version. The other two versions have scored just a hair above 140k

      • Simon

        What score does Mi 5 Pro get ?

        • Roberto Tomás

          see my answer above:
          > The other two versions have scored just a hair above 140k.

          • Simon

            Is 140k sound about right for 2016 flagship ?

            • Roberto Tomás

              Frankly I don’t know the answer to that — what you are asking is in part “how meaningful is Antutu for 2016 flagship phones?”

              A Samsung Galaxy S4, which scores somewhere in the neighborhood of 25k-35k, is actually fairly peppy as a daily light use phone.

            • Simon

              Thanks very much that explanation. I think I’ll either go for Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro or Huawei P9 if I’m being honest.

    • Nico

      Ha…so Balco what have you ordered finally?

      • balcobomber25

        Nothing yet lol. I am leaning towards the Gionee S8 but I want to wait for the Meizu MX6, Huawei P9 and One Plus 3 to come out first.

        • Nico

          Haha word…i think the phones you mentionned should offer a huge plus compared to the MI5 which is almost at 400$ for the basic version. You like big screens so you would be disappointed at all. I am sure OnePlus 3 and Meizu MX6 will be killer phones.

          • balcobomber25

            The Mi5 is a very good phone with killer specs for the price I just don’t like the screen size or design.

    • xi7

      op2 +boeffla kernel = 103k.

      -gizchina mi5 version underclock 1.8ghz.

    • MattD

      I know, right? Now you’ll never buy it with such a low antutu score! Maybe a fixed version of the rom will raise it a bit, but it probably won’t be enough anyway 🙁

  • realjjj

    It would be great if you could run GFXBench long term performance, maybe leave it running when you go to sleep.
    Nobody has looked at that yet to see how hard the GPU throttles under sustained load.- or at least nothing i could find last time i’ve checked a few h ago.

    • didn’t miss it 😉

      • realjjj

        I can’t see an article and it is interesting as it can do 4k at 60FPS for cheap and A72 at 2GHz is pretty fast. Plus the Mediatek chip it uses is something we didn’t knew it exists,if you Google MT8693 all you find is related to this device.

  • MattD

    Since we’re talking about benchmark here, can you run at least 3 antutu in a row and tell us how much results get lower and how much temperature rise?

  • Can we get a battery test next?

  • Manjurul Islam

    So we can’t buy directly from mi even if we have Chinese address and payment too? Mi sites asking for captcha login in Chinese language grrrrr!!

    • Xiaolu

      If you have Chinese address, I guess you have friends in China, ask them to help you with that… and good luck!

      • Manjurul Islam

        Thing is little complicated, the friend is not Chinese, my relative who lives there and not much of an techie person. Purchasing mi online is tricky, need to act super fast to beat those Chinese bots and place order smoothly. That’s why I wanted to do all myself and use that friend’s address.

  • Nolan

    My every dream has been shattered. I expected 135k+/140k at least. Will not buy.

    • Aeonia

      You are joking right?

      • Nolan

        No. I will buy a device that is either 85,000+ on AnTuTu v5 (preferably 90,000+), or 135,000+ on AnTuTu v6 (preferably 140,000+).

        Buying a 2016 flagship with underwhelming performance isn’t a priority for me. I can wait another generation if I have to.

        • VMortens

          Then go for a PRO version instead. If it’s so important to you, why even bother with the entry 1.8GHz model?

        • balcobomber25

          Except Antutu tells you nothing about the performance. So let me fix that comment for you.

          Buying a 2016 flagship with underwhelming meaningless numbers isn’t a priority for me. I can wait another generation if I have to.

      • balcobomber25

        Sadly he is not. Antutu is the world to him.

  • Sun Sand

    I really like to know -is the supplied cable USB C on both it’s ends? A yes would mean the charger also has USB C!!

  • The Special Juan

    Rubbish score. Imagine the lag and freezes. Better off with an elephone or doogee… How can I use whatsapp or gmail with a score so low?

    • balcobomber25

      And what about Candy Crush??

      • Joel Adames

        2+2 in the calculator would take for ever…

  • Steven Fox

    Now if they can only sell that Mi5 at around 320$(how it should be)Instead of the 400+ they are asking almost everywhere, that would be great.
    The industry has gone beyond megahertz battles, so those extra Mhz on the CPU and GPU do amplify performance in benchmarks, but in real life you will never really know the difference, because it`s the architecture that actually matters.
