The Mi 5 is a flagship smartphone from Xiaomi featuring a powerful Snapdragon 820 chipset.
Xiaomi Mi 5 was announced at the MWC 2016 in Barcelona on March 3, and March 31 saw India as the second country to get the device after China. The Xiaomi Mi 5 was launched in India on March 31, and the very next day, Hugo Barra ripped apart the phone to let us see what is inside and how easy it was to repair the smartphone if something went wrong. Unlike the flagships from LG and Samsung which has a unibody and waterproof body respectively, servicing the devices makes it tough as they seal it with glue that needs to be torn through. However, the Xiaomi Mi 5 is not difficult to service. Opening the rear panel is child’s play and after the turn of a few screws here and there, you can see the motherboard, battery, camera and a lot of other components being pulled out. Let’s check out how the Xiaomi Mi 5 can be opened and what are the internals that were displayed to us.
