Hence it is a perfect device with power pack processor that can help one access various functions faster on the device.

- Storage and Battery
Xiaomi Mi 5C is equipped with amazing internal memory with 64 GB along with 3 GB RAM for enhanced efficiency. But it is to be noted that the phone does not offer expandable memory which can work as a drawback since most of the device offer expansion options with the help of Micro SD card. Those who have to store a number of data and images, the memory can prove a little troublesome area. The Xiaomi Mi 5C is powered with Li-ion 2860 mAh non-removable battery which offers long durability and sustainability. One can say that it is a device for the professional users who do not store much of large files such as videos and movies as well as some unimportant images.
The device is priced at somewhere around Rs14990 which places it in middle-segment. There are many other brands in this price range, and some of them are also with noteworthy features. Hence, as per the sources, the device may have to struggle to hold the foot in the market. As the device is loaded with some of the beautiful features the competition in the market will be worth to watch.
The device looks very promising, but is expected to face a fight from Vivo, Lenovo, Gionee and few models of Samsung as well. Still, the device has the edge over other phone as far as battery, camera and configuration are concerned. However, looking at the trend and awareness among buyers about the features of the devices, there is no worry for the company as the device is a power packed one that can help the buyer to get the best device at a much reasonable price.
