Xiaomi Mi 5 meets Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7

 

Xiaomi finally unveiled the Mi 5 – 2 years after its predecessor, Mi 4. The company came up with a completely redesigned and we must say, quite an innovative handset. Xiaomi Mi 5 will be coming with not just one, but three different variants. Although the design of the trio is completely similar, their build material is what makes them look different from each other. Apparently Mi 5 will have Standard, High and an Exclusive builds. Two of the devices are made with a combination of metal and Gorilla Glass 4 while the third one features a ceramic-glass duo. Overall the design is curved around the edges making it comfortable to hold. Apart from the different build material, there is a small difference present between the chipsets and internal storage of the devices. We will be comparing their top of the line smartphone, Xiaomi Mi 5 ceramic exclusive to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.

Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, which was a victim of massive leaks leading the device to no surprises is pretty much the same as that of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are powered up with top-notch specifications and like the G5, these devices do not offer a removable battery but do offer a microSD card slot. Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge both are water resistant, which is another plus point for both these devices.
