The Xiaomi Mi 5 has been short of revelation, which is something we’ve learnt to expect from Xiaomi. The phone, after first going on sale around 6 months back, is receiving a price cut in China.
The Mi 5 comes in a few different variants, differing in spec and pricing. However, Xiaomi have given each version is price cut of 200 yuan, which translates roughly to $30.
In effect, this means the Xiaomi Mi 5 in its base 3GB RAM 32GB ROM version is now available for 1799 yuan ($270); 3GB/64GB version for 2099 yuan ($315), and lastly, the Xiaomi Mi 5 Pro with 4GB RAM and 128GB ROM for 2499 ($375).
The not-so-flagship Xiaomi Redmi 3X also got a price cut along with it’s flagship cousin. It can now be had for 799 yuan ($120) by folks in China.
We weren’t as impressed as we expected with the Mi 5. However, with a starting price of $270, does the device sound like something you could consider now?
