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...

I have a few issues with this phone... Firstly not being available in the US means it's as good as not real for a good portion of buyers. Second is the screen size is way to small. Third is the ui, it looks terrible period.

Add all points of GPU, UX, CPU, RAM and you won't get this score. Probably bug in Antutu.

Anybody who cares about Antutu is an idiot. No wonder why PA/GSMArena/Engadget etc., are regarded as website for noobs. You won't find Anandtech use Antutu with any new reviews. Only reviews that are 'really good' are deep dive articles by Andrei Frumusanu. Rest all are bunch of illiterates who know nothing. Never cared about what PA/Gsmarena says about benchmark or batterylife as both of these are run by people who know absolutely nothing about technology and how to test devices. And for display obviously displaymate articles are really good. Also check DxoMark and dpreview for camera reviews.

Huh? Do you know how GSMArena does it's battery test Screen brightness set at 50% An hour of gaming, an hour of video playback, and an hour of web browsing. That's actually a real-world test!

I know more than you mate. And get our facts checked. 50% brightness is past news, it's 200Nits now. And they don't do gaming test. I know what I am talking about because I test device benchmarks for a living myself. And I don't do this tiny mobiles, I do for enterprise data center products like blades, storages like 3PAR/VMAX, switches of 100's of ports, servers with TB of RAM. So I know what it means to study benchmark and what to read and more importantly what to avoid. And this is something I do every freakin day.

Does it even matters? It is still slow on normal usage.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfdbmIgYPz8

Actually the curved back of Mi5 reminds me more of the Sony Ericsson Arc S. I think they copied it from the Arc.

Not really. It's actually the sides that are curved in Arc, not the glass back. And Arc actually uses plastic back.

That isn't a real score, no easy it loses to s7 in geek bench but beats it in antutu by 40k... its an over clocked unit OR a fake score.... B.S. imo

The Xiaomi Mi5 has no chance against the Exynos 8890, even with a 1080p display compared to 1440p. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfdbmIgYPz8

exynos 8890 is faster than s7 snapdragon 820. exynos beating xiomi is no big deal

Isn't this weird? The sum of those four scores should match the final one, since that's the way the result is produced. However if you make it so, there's almost 30k points missing? Fake enough?
