It makes this device very much like its predecessor Mi5s. This device also supports an Expandable Micro SD card slot which can be expanded up to 128GB.

Great Battery Life

The Mi Smartphones are quite popular in every aspect of features but what they are really renowned for are their battery life with amazing battery optimization features and great standby time. The Xiaomi Mi5c has very big 3500Mah Battery. That will support quick charge 2.0+ which will make it one of the best battery backed cell phone of this range. Hope to see the battery performance to go even higher with new features.

Other Salient Features

There are a few more features that I would like to cover up with my review which is really important for the purchaser to make a wise decision that are as follows. It also supports GPS and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n GPS.

Pricing and Release date

As we all know Xiaomi is famous for mid-range flagship killers, The Mi5C will also be priced under the radar of $300- $400 with two different variants That are –

  • 4GB RAM with 64GB Internal Storage
  • 3GB RAM with 64GB Internal Storage

A Chinese website claims that the new Mi flagship killer Mi5C will be launched at the end of December probably before Christmas.



According to me, this device is a very good performer and you can expect a lot from it. Below are some of the pros and cons I am listing so that you can get a good preview of what type of cell phone the XIAOMI Mi5C actually is!

  • Quad core processor with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC
  • Overall Look is excellent
  • Great Display quality with up to 443 PPI pixel density
  • Great battery along with Quick charge 2.0+ support
  • High-end specs at half the price spent
  • Expandable storage along with 64GB internal storage
  • 5”inch Display is something many people look for due to many personal choices and likes and dislikes
  • The camera is not so good compared to the other smartphone in this price range.
  • The processor which backs the Mi5C is only a quad core snapdragon 820. It is not so good as compared to its competitors which have Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 CPU with Octa-core processor and others that are of higher level
My verdict for Purchasers

According to me, Mi5C is a device that has a lot of potential with great battery life and lots of features backing it up to be a great smartphone. There are other smartphones in this price range that are slightly better in some aspects, not forgetting the outstanding MOTO Z that also comes under this price range is a very tough competitor. So I would like you to decide what your needs are. If you want a good smartphone with great battery life, small screen size with the decent camera this is the Phone for you.
