Xiaomi Mi 5X smartphone was launched in July 2017. The phone comes with a 5.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels.

The Xiaomi Mi 5X is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Xiaomi Mi 5X packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

Moreover, the smartphone runs on the Android Nougat 7.1 and comes with the latest MIUI 9.0. It is yet to be seen if Xiaomi launches the MIUI 9.0 with the Mi 5X in India or bundles it with the Miui 8.0.

The smartphone as mentioned at the start comes with Dual Rear camera setup with 12 MP lenses. There is a telephoto lens which comes with f/2.6 aperture and a wide angle lens which offers f/2.2 aperture.

The Xiaomi Mi 5X comes with 5.5 Inch IPS LCD display with Full HD Resolution (1920*1080) pixels. The smartphone comes with 2.5D curved glass on top of the display to enhance the looks and touch experience.

Additionally, the smartphone comes with 3080 mAH capacity battery and is quite thin measuring 7.3 mm in thickness. The Xiaomi Mi 5X weighs 163 grams.

Although I’m disappointed with the reduction in battery capacity, the 3000mAh battery combined with the Snapdragon 625 still outputs above Redmi 3 levels of battery life. I was able to easily get over 6 hours of screen on time with 20% left, consisting mostly of YouTube streaming, a lot of taking photos and reading news. Charging the phone with a QuickCharge power brick takes around about an hour and a half to charge. This will satisfy heavy users, but those who are Redmi Note 4 enthusiasts like me will not.
