Xiaomi intends to retain its leading position in the mid-range market, and the manufacturer does not hesitate to make the gun talk. The Mi 5X contains everything you need to make it a solid smartphone.
The Mi 5X incorporates several features of the Mi 6, which we recently proposed to you. Like its big brother, this new model offers two cameras on the back of 12 megapixels, including a telephoto lens. The screen also maintains a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080, but it is larger (5,5 inches, compared to 5.15 inches for the Mi 6): the definition will necessarily be lower.
For the rest, we are in front of a true mid-range with a Snapdragon 625 chip backed by 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, a battery with a capacity of 3,080 mAh, a 5-megapixel photo sensor ‘before. In terms of design, one can easily recognize the leg of Xiaomi whose inspiration is to be sought on the Cupertino side.

There are two things that make this Mi 5X stand out. On the one hand, it is the first Xiaomi to work with the MIUI 9 overlay. It is based on Android 7 Nougat, also a first, and the manufacturer promises a more intelligent management of resources (especially the battery), a More responsive interface and faster launch of applications. Xiaomi also suggests that this new version of MIUI will be offered to other of its smartphones, without giving more details.
The other advantage of the Mi 5X is its price. It is indeed offered at 1,499 yuan, or about 189 €. In view of the very interesting technical characteristics of the device, it is given or almost! Too bad that for now at least, this smartphone is confined to China. We hope to have an international version as soon as possible!
