Overview Xiaomi Mi 5c

Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Xiaomi, which took place in February 2017 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2017). This is a new model Xiaomi Mi 5c — dual-smartphone works on Android 7.1 Nougat, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

Screen, body and battery

Moderately large 5.15-inch screen, made by technology IPS LCD, installed in the smartphone Xiaomi Mi 5c.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Xiaomi Mi 5c the thickness of the case is 7.1 mm, which turns out to be thick enough, maybe you will not be comfortable holding such a device in your hand.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Xiaomi Mi 5c installed battery for 2 860 mAh, and, as you can guess, it will not last long. We advise you to look in the catalog on smartphones with a powerful battery, there is a good choice from different manufacturers.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Xiaomi Mi 5c has two cameras: the main camera on 12 MP and the front camera on 8 MP. If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then you hardly will be satisfied with the quality of these photos, because the camera is rather weak. We advise buying (well, or at least look) camera phones. This is smartphones with very good cameras on the market.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset Xiaomi Surge S1. RAM 3 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 64 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

Price for Xiaomi Mi 5c: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is not the model you are looking for. If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Xiaomi Mi 5c will begin in March 2017.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
