All the models to the review in my opinion stylish, efficient and have good basic camera. They are in different price segment that will allow you to choose the model based on their financial capabilities. If you're interested, I have previously done reviews smartphones from this company Android 6.0Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 ProXiaomi Redmi Note 4.

Xiaomi Mi5. In the standard delivery of the smartphone includes: warranty card, user manual in Chinese, clip to open the tray SIM-cards, USB Type-C cable and wall charger (5V — 2.5 A / 9V — 2A / 12V — 1.5 A) with support for fast charging (Quick Charge 3.0 — 80% in 35 minutes). According to the manufacturer, the phone can charge from 0 to 100% in 1 hour 10 minutes.

The smartphone is made from a composition of glass and metal. Available in four colors and three variations. Two versions have 3 GB of RAM and 32/64 internal memory. The top version has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB to store information (back cover ceramic). On the back of the smartphone there is a camera in the form of a touch module Sony IMX 298 with a resolution of 16 MP (consists of 6 lenses and covered with sapphire glass), dual two-tone led flash and the logo of the company. On the right side is placed the power button and volume rocker.

At the left end of the tray for two SIM cards format Nano (both can use LTE). The ability to expand the internal memory of Mi5 with the help of SD card is missing. Bottom the manufacturer has placed the USB port Type-C and two grids, under one of which, has placed the external speaker and a second microphone. The external speaker volume and clarity is excellent.

At the top of the standard 3.5 mm Jack for headphones, second MIC for noise cancellation and infrared port for controlling home appliances (TV, air conditioning…). The smartphone Xiaomi Mi5 very light, compact and sits in the hand very comfortable thanks to the rounded edges. The build is high quality, no not crunches and not wobbly.

At the bottom of the front panel there are two touch buttons and one mechanical with a fingerprint scanner. At the top is a badge, light sensor, proximity, earpiece, camera and logo. Oleophobic coating is, your finger slips just fine and leaves no fingerprints.

IPS display 5.15 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels as many as 16 LEDs for illumination of the matrix. This is a huge plus, because LED backlight helps conserve. In the sun is clearly visible and you don't have to close the screen by hand. Viewing angles are excellent and colors very juicy.

Touch sensitive and recognizes up to 10 simultaneous touches. Sorry, unlock by double tap there, so I have to use a mechanical button. I think that in future versions of the firmware this will fix it. The camera has a maximum resolution for photos is 4608 x 3456 pixels. 4K video recording with a frame rate of 30 FPS, FullHD video up to 120 FPS. The quality of the footage at a good level.

По железу нужно сказать, что здесь установлен самый топовый на данный момент четырехъядерный процессор Snapdragon 820 с тактовой частотой 2,15 ГГц и лучшее решение в виде видеоускорителя 14.12.2016 с тактовой частотой 624 МГц. Имеется модем X12 LTE способный выдавать скорость до 600 мегабит в секунду и отдельное ядро DSP HEXAGON 680 для обработки аудио и изображений.

All collectively, these components consume little energy, are practically not heated and actively calculate, because it is built using a 14th-nanometer process technology. Games such as Modern Combat 5 go without problems. In fact, the tests of the battery, AnTuTu and Geekbench speak for themselves.

Is a function Wirelles dysplay to transfer the image from your phone to your TV screen and out of the box is the app MiRemote to control almost all appliances. Powered smartphone running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and all pre-installed Chinese apps are deleted no problems.

Xiaomi Mi Max. In the set with the phone: USB cable, power adapter (5V/2A), clip for SIM tray and a small manual. The front panel Mi Max is made of glass with the use of technology 2.5 D. In the upper part to be the earpiece, camera, light indicator, light sensor and proximity. The back panel of the smartphone is made of metal, top and bottom there are plastic inserts. There is also a fingerprint scanner, camera and two-tone dual led flash.

The right side has placed the power button and volume control, and on the left — tray with two SIM card slots with support for format Nano and Micro (supports 4G and SD card up to 128 GB). On the lower end part has the microUSB port, microphone and external speaker, which the manufacturer hid behind the holes. On the upper end of the standard 3.5 headset Jack, the infrared port and a second microphone for noise cancellation. Despite the huge size, to use the device very convenient. The casing is of metal and is assembled well.

Аппаратная платформа может иметь четыре модификации. Smartphone с шестиядерным процессором Snapdragon 650 имеют 2/3GB оперативной и 16/32 GB постоянной памяти. И только версии с процессором Snapdragon 652 имеют 3/4 ГБ оперативной и 64/128 ГБ пользовательской памяти.

Camera дисплея 6.44 дюйма с FullHD разрешением. К сожалению, под углами немного инвертирует черный цвет, но за то присутствует идеальная колибровка яркости и разблокировка по двойному тапу. Сенсорные кнопки подсвечиваются и настраиваются. Интерфейсная оболочка MIUI в смартфоне не имеет в первоначальной прошивке Google сервис, но за то предустановлено приложение MiRemote для ИК-порта, что позволит вам управлять бытовой техникой. Сканер отпечатков пальцев работает просто отлично.

The manufacturer job of optimizing the firmware tab in the browser does not reload the apps are not restarted. Radio in the smartphone Xiaomi Mi Max is present and do not have to connect a headset. External speaker loud and clear sound. The smartphone did well as a Navigator, the network does not lose, via satellite focuses quickly.

The battery (4850 mAh) in normal use, enough for two days. In the active mode of continuous work (games, running heavy applications, downloading files), 100% screen brightness the battery lasts up to 12 hours. As part of the Max energy consumption of Mi is a leader. The gaming performance of the smartphone at the highest level. All games (GTA, BATMAN, MORTAL KOMBAT X) are running on ultra settings without lags and MicroProse. The tests (AnTuTu, 3D Mark, Geekbench), also showed good results.

Camera (16 MP) with f/2.0 aperture, autofocus, flashes and can record video FullHD, and with the help of third-party apps like Google Camera you can record in 4K. The quality of the footage was underwhelming, but it's safe to attribute to the standard level. But the sound recording is impressive. Front camera (5MP) is also not particularly pleased, but for Skype and quick pics will do.

Xiaomi Redmi 3S. In the delivery of the smartphone includes: microUSB cable, charger (5V/2A), needle to eject a SIM card and quick start manual. On the left side of the mechanical placed a tray with two slots for SIM cards format Micro and Nano (second slot combo, nano SIM card or MicroSD card up to 128 GB). On the right side is the power button and volume controls (they are not loose and are sitting in the grooves perfectly). On the back there is a metal cover with plastic inserts the fingerprint fingerprint scanner, camera and flash.

At the highest point is a noise-canceling microphone, an infrared port (you can use your device as a remote control for home appliances) and a standard jack 3,5 mm. On the bottom the micro USB port and microphone. On the front side are touch buttons without illumination, the badge, earpiece, camera, and a standard set of sensors (light and proximity). The smartphone lies well in the hand, well built — nothing creaks.

A five-inch display has an oleophobic coating, very high quality IPS matrix with HD (1280 x 720) resolution and perfect viewing angles. It would be possible to find fault with black color, which flows at angles to the gray, but for the money it is impractical. The touch screen is sensitive, responsive and recognizes up to 10 simultaneous touches. The screen brightness is well calibrated to both sides — in the sun all you can see in the dark does not blind. There is a possibility to set the badge, Wi-Fi display is present.

Xiaomi Redmi 3S поставляется в двух вариациях: 2/16 GB и 3/32 GB оперативной и постоянной памяти. Работает на 8-ми ядерном процессоре Qualcomm Snapdragon 430, а в качестве видеоускорителя используется Adreno 505. Для данного ценового сегмента это лучшее геймерское решение. Онлайн-игры всегда сильнее прогревают смартфон, но благодаря металлическому корпусу Redmi 3S быстро остывает.

Asphalt 8, GTA, World of Tanks Blitz is going well, but at the highest settings may be MicroProse. At medium settings everything just flies. It should be mentioned that the structure of the Snapdragon processor 430 includes the advanced modem X16 support LTE 4G network.

All built on a 28 nanometer process technology, which means the chip is prone to excessive power consumption and heating. At the peak of the nuclei observed temperature is about 64 degrees. To unlock a smartphone with a scanner, it does not need to first Wake from sleep, as Meizu M3S. Simply put finger on the scanner to Wake and unlock the smartphone. The clarity and the volume of the earpiece no complaints, everything works at a very decent level.

The battery is under stress test (enabled all wireless communication modules, Epic Citadel on ultra graphics settings, downloading and installing heavy games) have shown impressive results in 5 hours. With such a load, the test result can not but rejoice.

As the main camera has a sensor of 13 MP with phase detect autofocus and aperture 2.0. Front of performance used sensor at 5 MP with an aperture of f/2.2. The maximum resolution for shooting video — FullHD. In the daytime the main module shoots well, but at night it doesn't matter. The front camera will shoot as well as any other low cost options. The main advantage of ultrabudgetary smartphone Xiaomi Redmi 3S — it's practicality.
