Xiaomi has launched Xiaomi Mi 5C 4G smartphone finally. This phone is a little different though. Instead of using the chipset from popular manufacturers, they are using the Xiaomi surge S1, their first in house chipset. The Xiaomi Mi 5C is the worthy representative of Mi family. This means it comes with a number of familiar specs.
Xiaomi Mi5C is a classy metal-clad smartphone with the sleek metal finish and round 2.5 D edges . It feels very premium in hand and looks absolutely stunning. The fingerprint scanner is embbedd on the home button front side. I think it is a very convenient place because it’s very safe and quick to access. The device is available 3 different color variants Gold, Black and the beautiful Rose Gold.
The Xiaomi Mi 5C packs a 5.15 inch FHD resolution display and it’s rather refreshing to be using a smaller device after being used to bigger displays. The black bezels are quite minimal as compared to other Xiaomi phones and it doesn’t really affect viewing experience. Xiaomi knows about the unsightly black borders and is taking steps to reduce it in size.
The Xiaomi Mi 5C only comes with 64GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. Out of the box it has about 53GB of storage free and there is no support for micro SD card. This phone also does not support USB OTG and it does not detect the Type C USB Thumbdrive when I plug it in.
The Xiaomi Mi 5C has a 16MP back camera and a 8MP front camera. The stock camera app has functions like Beautify, Tilt-Shift, Panorama and HHT mode. Tap on the triple circle icon to access the camera filters. The fact Xiaomi’s Surge S1 chips dual-camera is pretty nice. For example, the same Huawei Kirin 955 on the Huawei P9 doesn’t support this feature. And the manufacturer has to use additional ISP.
Manual focusing speeds is very quick and keep the focused object look sharp. But for continuous auto focus, it can sometimes fail to focus on the target object. Macro shots can be done with a maximum distance of 10-15cm between camera and object.
The 2860mAh battery seems a little small with the fact that the Mi5S with the same screen size manage to pack in a 3200mAh battery. I wouldn’t mind if the phone was a little thicker for space to add in a larger battery. It still lasted the throughout the day with moderate use.
The Xiaomi Mi 5C is the budget-friendly version of the Mi5. Taking into account this fact Xiaomi has made a few experiments on it. In this sense, the Mi 5C is perceived differently. Its red rose color is just eye-catching. Look wise it is one of the best Xiaomi smartphone. The Mi 5C is like the budget version of the flagship series.
