The Xiaomi Redmi 5X (shortly called the Xiaomi Mi 5X) is the end result of Xiaomi’s effort to replicate what Apple did with the iPhone 7 Plus. Speaking of replicate, only the design and build of the device took as much as it could from the iPhone 7 Plus.

Other than that, the Redmi 5X can be arguably said to be one of the best smartphone the Chinese company manufactured in 2017. To have a clearer picture of what I’m talking about, read on about the Xiaomi Redmi 5X under the headers below.

Design & Display

Beautifully engraved in a smoothly textured metal body, the Xiaomi Redmi 5X is just as premium as it was expected to come. The sleekness and slimness of the Redmi 5X is another attribute to admire as the device comes with a dimension of 155.4 mm x 75.8 mm x 7.3 mm and is available in Black, Gold and Rose Gold colours.

Xiaomi Redmi 5X

Looking at the above image of the rear view of the Redmi 5X pretty much sparks memories of the iPhone 7 Plus. Doesn’t it? The position and form of the dual camera set-up, as well as the faint gold lining that runs just at the top edge of the device all screams “iPhone 7 Plus”!

The bottom of the device houses the speaker grill, USB Type-C port and the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5X rocks a 2.5D curved 5.5 inch Full HD display with efficient Corning Gorilla Glass protection against scratches and dust. This somewhat eliminates the need for an external shattered glass screen protector.


The Xiaomi Redmi 5X runs the Android v7.0 Nougat operating system and laced with Xiaomi’s latest MIUI interface.


Performance and Memory

With the Redmi 5X, be you a gamer, a heavy smartphone user or you barely use your device, fluid processing of operations is assured. The device uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 SoC with 8 cores (Octa cores) that all run at a fast speed of 2.0 GHz.

In addition, the device comes with a massive amount of RAM (4GB) and internal memory (64GB). It also supports expansion up to 128GB via the second SIM card slot.

Camera and Battery

The Redmi 5X comes with twin camera lenses on the rear – dual 12 MP + 12 MP and dual LED flash. On the front, there’s a single 5 megapixels lens in charge of selfie duties.

Powering this device is a non-removable Lithium Polymer battery with a capacity of 3,080 mAh which is capable of providing up to 26 hours of talk time. Charging the Redmi 5X from 0 to 100% should take relatively little time as the device comes with the Quick Charge technology on board.
