Generally, Xiaomi’s 5th-gen Mi line smartphones are very attractive. The Mi 5 is considered to be the company’s best phone taking the manufacturer to the new heights. And though the Mi 5S and Mi 5S Plus were packed with good hardware and perfect camera modules, they failed. The main reason why that happened is related to the customers’ expectations – they had been thinking these models should come with the best features, but they didn’t. Anyway, the Xiaomi Mi 5C sports the manufacturer’s own-made Surge S1 chip. And it’s considered to be the first step in a long journey. Finally, this series has another representative in face of the Xiaomi Mi 5C.

Today it became known, the Mi 5X is considered to be the best phone in the Indian market under Rs. 20.000 ($314).
