Watch the ceramic back of the Xiaomi Mi 5 take a lot of abuse in this official stress test

Victor, 30 March, 2016

The Xiaomi Mi 5 has a lot going for it. A Snapdragon 820 SoC, up to 4GB of RAM and an impressive 16MP camera with a 4-axis OIS system, to name a few. But the handset is also dressed to impress in the flagship circles it intends to mingle with, especially in its top-tier ceramic back variant.

This material choice is definitely not unheard of, take the OnePlus X for instance, but it still seems to raise some flags with many users, who seem to typically associate ceramic with a brittle dinner plate or perhaps a vase. In an effort to address this, Xiaomi has released a stress test video, putting said back through quite a bit of abuse.

Now, we only have one complaint about the clip and its has to do with quality. If you are going to showcase how well the surface handles, it is generally a good idea to have enough pixels, so we can see the end result. Still, the phone did look quite well and there is no denying that the clip is incredibly amusing. Take a quick look for yourself.
