Xiaomi Mi 5S & Mi 5S First Hands On: Basic Overview of the two new Flagships (Video)

by Joe 8

We recently got hold of the Xiaomi Mi 5S and the Mi 5S Plus which were announced a few days back, thanks to OPPOMART. As a result, we can give a brief overview of the design and the interface of the handset. Please note that this is not a full review and our review of both the handsets are coming your way real soon. But until then, you can get a good look at the phone in the two videos below.

Most of you already know that the Xiaomi Mi 5S and Mi 5S come with the powerful Snapdragon 821 chipset. The Mi 5S comes with 3GB/ 4GB RAM options while the Mi 5S Plus takes things to another level with 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM options, a first for Xiaomi. You can read the full specs of both the handsets from here. Xiaomi Mi 5S | Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus

So, what do you think about the two new releases from Xiaomi? Impressed?

    Is it just me or is it that Mi 5s plus feels like a downgrade from mi 5s in several ways.
    Mi5s has a great camera sensor but the plus doesnt have such a large sensor, atleast I dont know of any good camera with 13mp. There is no ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the plus. Xiaomi hasnt really delivered a great product in the recent months as we come to expect from them. Redmi note 4,redmi pro, mi 5splus, dont quite match the standard set by the RN3 PRO.

      MI 5S plus is the second most powerfull android phone in antuto…so that is not true

      the foto samples are great

      and the ultrasonic is not essencial, because i do prefer the back fingerprint in big phones

      The only thing missing is the 3d touch

        I also love the miui

        Is the only reason i dont buy the leEco

      What are you talking about?
      Rn3pro is a cheap phone with cheap materials with a average camera. Any Mi phone it’s better

    • Yeah, more like the Mi5s Minus.
      Doesn’t even sport a 2K screen which I figured it should’ve had.
      The only thing it has going for it… dualcam and smaller black screen borders.

  • White fronts… huge ass black bezels…
    Who comes up with that kinda shit?

    Man… I really thought I was going to want this as a successor to the Nubia Z9, but it’s off, man. And the Plus isn’t even 2K. I guess I’ll wait to see if the MI Note 2 will get out… or something high-end new from Meizu/LeEco… can’t believe I’m saying this… but the Elephone P9000 Edge might be a nicer concept than this.

    do both have:

    – double tap to wake/sleep feature? .
    – infrared?
    – usb 2.0/3.0 type c port?

    what charger do they come with, quick charge 2 or 3?

    how long does it take for both to fully charge (while not being used) from 15% battery?

    please let me know, and please review mi5s plus dual camera, is it well optimized already or need further improvement….some photos comparison between both device on the same objects would be nice….

    please try to use both phones while being charged, do they become laggy? do you experience any ghost touch on both screen?
