The Xiaomi Mi 5s takes after where the Mi 5 left off and makes a few notable steps to improve its flagship status – it switches to the latest Snapdragon 821 chip, ups the base storage, and the most obvious change – it retires the glass panels in favor of a metal unibody.
The main camera is one of the highlights of the series, and while the Mi 5s wasn’t treated with the dual-camera upgrade, it’s sensor is as premium as it can get. Instead of the small 16MP 1/2.8″ sensor, the Mi 5s offers a bigger 12MP 1/2.3″ one. The sensor’s pixels grew 40% bigger thanks to the bigger estate and smaller resolution, which will help the Mi 5s resolve more detail and capture more light in the long run.
Finally, there is more battery juice available to the new MIUI 8 and, in combination with the power-efficient Snapdragon 821 chip, our expectations are quite high.
