Xiaomi has extensively hyped the performance of its latest flagship smartphone, Xiaomi Mi 5. After all, the smartphone took two years into making and is currently the only device in India to run on Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820 processor. Further claims the LPDDR4 RAM is 100 percent faster than the LPDDR3 whereas UFS 2.0 Flash is 87 percent faster than the eMMC 5.0 standard.

Xiaomi has evidently put a huge effort to make the Mi 5 a powerful smartphone. But does the Mi 5 live up to the hype? We are currently reviewing the Xiaomi Mi 5 and will be soon putting up the detailed review. You can check out our detailed analysis about its camera capabilities, and also how its unique 4-axis OIS camera works. But today we look at the performance of the Xiaomi Mi 5 based on benchmark scores, and some routine procedures such as playing graphic intensive games like Real Racing 3 and basic runner games such as Temple Run. We also compare the smartphone against the Samsung Galaxy S7.

Do note that benchmark scores don t necessarily ensure the smartphone is good but do reflect on the calibre of the device. Before we further elaborate, keep in mind that we are currently testing the 3GB RAM + 32GB version of the Mi 5. It has Snapdragon 820 with maximum clock speed at 1.8GHz. It has Adreno 530 graphics processor, which it claims to be 40 percent faster than the previous-gen Adreno GPUs. It is worth pointing out that the Mi 5 Pro version has the Snapdragon 820 processor with maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz. The Mi 5 is slightly stripped down in terms of processor power but not perhaps not big enough to hinder performance significantly. Though 3GB of RAM as compared to 4GB of RAM may disappoint those looking for graphic intensive gaming and applications.

The India variant of the Samsung Galaxy S7, on the other hand, comes with Exynos 8890 octa-core processor along with Adreno 530 GPU. It has 4GB of RAM and comes with microSD slot for expandable storage. Also, it runs TouchWiz UI based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

First up is AnTuTu 6.0. Xiaomi had created a lot of buzz when its Mi 5 hit record 136875 on AnTuTu. Our results are different though as it scored 108226. The Mi 5 is behind the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and Apple iPhone 6s. The Samsung Galaxy S7, on the other hand, scored 110005. However, Mi 5 s scores are quite impressive considering it has a downclocked processor and has lesser RAM. The results show that Mi 5 can go toe to toe with the likes of the Galaxy S7.

On 3D Mark Sling Shot, the Mi 5 scored an impressive 2072. But the Samsung Galaxy S7 narrowly beats that with 2124.

On Geekbench single-core and multi-core, the Mi 5 scored 1903 and 4637 respectively. The Galaxy S7 scored 2086 and 5920 on single-core and and multi-core scores respectively. It is worth pointing out that the Mi 5 has lesser single-core scores most probably because of lesser clock speed as well as lesser multi-core scores due to its four cores versus Exonys eight cores.

The Xiaomi Mi 5 benchmark scores are very impressive for a flagship smartphone. We cannot overlook the fact that the Mi 5 comes at almost half of the Galaxy S7 price.

Among other few things we have liked about the Xiaomi Mi 5 is the graphics rendering. Games such as Real Racing 3 are a fluid experience with absolutely no lag and stutter. What we also liked was minimum heating, a problem that had severely impacted the last generation Snapdragon 810 processor. It appears that Snapdragon 820 has finally overcome this issue. MIUI 7 also looks to be optimized for the hardware. Our Mi 5 is currently running a stable v7.2.2.0 of the MIUI 7 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
