Xiaomi Mi 5 scores 179,566 on AnTuTu
Even though Xiaomi has yet to open shop officially in the U.S., there are a large number of potential customers in the states that would love the opportunity to pick up the company's latest flagship phone, the Xiaomi Mi 5. 19 months in development, the Mi 5 features a 5.15-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood with a quad-core 2.15GHz CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU.

4GB of RAM is inside along with 128GB of native storage. The Sony IMX298 sensor is found on the 16MP rear facing camera, which uses PDAF to focus quickly. The 4MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and thanks to Quick Charge 3.0, it powers up in no time. The Mi 5 also comes with a front-facing fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button. The phone is offered only in black, supports NFC and VoLTE, and sports a ceramic body. And to top it all off, the Xiaomi Mi 5 happened to score 179,566 on AnTuTu. 

Xiaomi has added a Reading Mode that is similar to Apple's Night Shift, and removes blue light from the screen to reduce eye fatigue. The UI's Night Display makes the screen more comfortable for users to use in the evening.

There is a contingent of U.S. smartphone buyers that would love to see the Xiaomi Mi 5 offered in the states. However, it's not going to happen this year. Last June, Xiaomi VP and former Googler Hugo Barra explained why Xiaomi has not yet planted its flag in the U.S. Barra said that most U.S. consumers buy their phones from U.S. carriers, and Xiaomi sells its wares at full price, unlocked only.

The executive also said that it would take a while to set up a proper customer service department in the states. Lastly, he noted that U.S. smartphone buyers would be less likely to purchase a phone based on a low price (possibly they are too specs-conscious). While that might be true, the Mi 5 is so loaded that a low price wouldn't be the only thing that the phone would have going for it in the U.S.


Thanks for the tip!

That's not Xiomi -- That's a backwards Samsung Galaxy Edge phone with a hint of iPhone details...

That doesn't mean he is.

Doesn't he have the right to express his opinion?

If he thinks it's not "Xiomi" (actually Xiaomi) then what's your beef with that?

Come on Adreno! Cut him some slack...you do it too, sometimes!
I'm more curious about how PA will rate this phone.
Went through gsmarena's review of MI5 and i'd say it got an equivalent of 9/10 according to the positive feedback.
Battery life is awesome and so is the camera!

No man.. There are design trends. Smartphone manufacturers follow them, but still if you want to call it copying, then call it so. Just know that everybody does it. Not just the Chinese, or the small, cell phone companies.

And Apple too. Many do not see it because of fanboyism.
EVERYONE COPIES!

Use your imagination... The rear of that phone looks like samsungs edge front screen - or as I was informed - the other way around the samsung edge's front screen and sides the way they run up look like xiomi's rear panel. That's why I said "backwards". They're extremely identical.

Did it come out before the Note Edge? Oh even better, when Samsung first showed the Edge prototype before the Note Edge, was the Xiaomi one available then? NO! It wasn't!

Mi Note's back copied Note Edge's edge? LOL
Very uncharacteristic of you to post a short comment.

You made a point brother. Samsung is a giant tech company which always innovates, and has produced phones since decades ago how the hell would we copy a cheap, baseless company like Xaomi. This is totally a disgusting accusation.

Wow guys, I just wanted to make similarities of the two as the curve lines where the back panel of xaimi and screen of edge meet the side bezels (especially in corners) are extremely alike down to the vertical antena lines. Just particularly extremely similar. Not trashing anything, just wanted to know if others see it.

Yes. So true. I personally hate the double standards to have reviews give. This is pretty much the order of who is most innovative based off of these propagated reveiwer:
1st Apple
2nd Samsung
3rd western phones makers
4th Chinese phone manufacters

You are irritated because a cheaper phone looks and performs better than your current phone..
