Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus Review

Score: 9.33/10

Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus is a totally fascinating phone launched many years ago, counting with a really big 5.7" display, an extremely fast 2.34 gigahertz Quad-Core CPU, a 13 megapixels back side camera and a 4 mega-pixels front side camera. Let's take a closer look at what this cellphone can do.

This phone is much lighter than what you would expect from a cellphone like this. Talking about its materials, this cellphone is mostly manufactured with Metal . This phone is very thin and stilized, being just 0.31 inches thick. While this phone just has 6.09 inches long and 3.06" wide, it manages to hold a 5.7 inches screen. The Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus is offerred in multiple color options: gold, gray, pink and silver.

Xiaomi decided to build the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 MSM8996 Pro chip, including an extremely powerful 2340 MHz Quad-Core processor and a large 6 GB of RAM. A good advantage of this phone is the 128 GB large internal storage and although it doesn't include an SD card slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of applications without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone has two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back camera and a 4 megapixels front facing camera. Its back camera has a maximum 2 aperture so it can capture impressive pictures even in low-light situations. It also films 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps, and slow-motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) up to 120 frames per second (4 times slower ).

The Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus includes a gorgeous 1080 x 1920 (Full HD) 5.7-inches screen, which makes all images and videos look brightful and colorful.

This device counts with wi-fi connection (which it can provide to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE-A , the fastest connectivity and 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSPA technologies. The Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus has dual SIM cards so it is able to work with 2 different carriers or phone numbers.

This phone features a high capacity 3800 mAh Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours without having to charge it at all. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to live shorter, while with such a big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before it becomes an issue.

This cellphone also comes with a wide range of cool characteristics like Fingerprint Scanner, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (provides communication with other phones, computers and accessories) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

It doesn't matter whether you want it mostly for social networks, love photography, are looking for a phone for work or are looking for a phone to play lots of games, you will probably love this cellphone.
