As the least of the duo, the Xiaomi Mi 5S comes with improvements in hardware when it is compared to its predecessor. It has a more powerful processor, an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, high-brightness pressure sensitive screen and a humongous battery capacity. If you're willing to pay more to get a high end device from Xiaomi, then the Mi 5S will be definitely worth it. Its specs are almost on par with Apple's latest flagship, the Iphone 7 and Samsung's explosive Galaxy S7😎. Having combined great tech to build devices like this, Xiaomi devices are among the few Chinese phones that are not limited to the African smartphone market, but the world at large. Given below, is a review of the specifications and price of the Xiaomi Mi 5S.
Display and BuildThe Xiaomi Mi 5S features a 5.15 inch Full HD display screen with 600 nits of brightness that uses a 16 high-light color rendering technology to brighten the display by 30%, making it clear to be viewed from even under the sun. The display has a 94% NTSC gamut saturation, resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, and pixel density of 428PPI. The Mi 5S has a fingerprint sensor that is located at the device's rear. This sensor which is based on Qualcomm's ultrasonic technology can detect the fingertip within a fraction of a second. Other than being fast, it is less prone to damage and accurate to the point of even recognizing a wet or dirty fingertip.
This smartphone has a high-light wire drawing or a matte process of full-metal uni-body with a curved back. Its available colors of dark gray and gold have a high-light wire drawing process, while the silver and rose gold colors have a matte process. With these two textured designs, users can make a choice between them based on their preference, as each still gives this device a sleek design, premuim look and feel.
