By | 20 October 2017

Looks okay. So many smartphones today make it so similar to each other. Including Mi 5X which is similar to his own brother, Mi Max 2. We subjective subjects to the design of the Mi 5X which is dominated by metal material. Smartphone 5.5 inches is quite thin and the back was not easily dirty by fingerprints.

This one smartphone has an identical dual-camera like the Mi 6, which is 12 MP + 12 MP with 2x optical zoom plus portrait mode. When we compare, the camera Mi 5X and Mi 6 turned out to produce images of similar quality. Though the sensors used are different.

Camera Xiaomi Mi 6 bersensor Sony, while the camera Mi 5X bersensor OmniVision. Especially for you who like photo bokeh, the quality offered should be satisfactory.

It’s USB C. The USB port problem is actually a trivial matter. But since the current trend shows the transition from microUSB to USB C, the presence of a USB C port on a middle-class smartphone is a positive thing. In addition to more current, the new port also has a better data transfer speed.

The battery is quite durable. Screen-on-time nearly six hours signifies an above-average battery life. Although not the most efficient, at least Mi 5X battery will not run out for activity from morning until 8 pm for active use without playing games. The durability of the battery is influenced by Snapdragon 625 chipset which is already known to be super efficient.


Camera without OIS. Quite satisfying to take pictures, Mi 5X camera is not without lack. Keep in mind, although can capture as good as Mi 6, but the camera Mi 5X lost in the business of recording video. Due to the absence of OIS, the result of his video recording feels more vibrating than Mi 6.

How not, sold Rp3 million, Mi 5X will kill each other with Xiaomi smartphone, such as Redmi Note 4 (official warranty) and Mi 5 and Mi 5s international version. Yes, too many Xiaomi smartphones have cost Rp3 millions for now.


Xiaomi Mi 5X is actually an interesting option for you who have pocket Rp3 millions. The camera is similar to Mi 6 and its performance is similar to Mi Max 2. But with the tag of Rp3 millions, its presence is also quite confusing because dirange same price, there are other options that are not less interesting, like Mi 5s for example.
