The only reason to pick the So... moreX Perf definitely has a better design. But as I said it's not just design. It also larger functionality.
Mi5 is better in functionality for its price.
By usual, for cheap and high spec sure Mi 5 beats Sony in the poll. Good luck Sony.

Mi5 is winning cause of it's price
Other wise seriously Sony is the clear winner here and BTW to those complaining about bezels mi5 has them beneath the glass
I love Xperias, but this time I think I'll go with xiaomi mi5 as it'll be only half the price of Xperia x performance.
Sony is better.
Stereo speaker, Metal body, Waterproof, Lighter UI, and i believe it has better battery life.

The only reason to pick the Sony would be if you really need the front stereo speakers and water resistance. Features that I really couldn't care less about.
I'm not sure if people who vote see, but sony got 3x the selfie pixels(13vs4), also more and bigger sensor main camera. Also no glass back means less worry about phone falling on ground. It may not be greatest thing from sony but still I wouldn't vote for microsd-slotless phone.
ABADDON, 28 Feb 2016wtf! comparing knock off brand product to something branded like Sony? what is wrong with you ... moreWell, actually Xiaomi is by a far larger mobile manufacturer than Sony.
Sony sold twice less smartphones than Xiaomi in 2015.
It's just simply comes into design/functionality (Sony) vs price/functionality (Xiaomi).
wtf! comparing knock off brand product to something branded like Sony? what is wrong with you gsmarena? lol of course Sony wins by far! Xiaomi is way too cheap, K'O brand! like any local brand or typical chinese out there! quality of their product, after sale service and brand reputation is something questionable! I'm not trying to be racist but truth will shall you free... not a Sony fan but compering Sony to something inappropriate is not fair!

All my Sony devices (and I don't mean only smartphones) are either broken or full of bugs. Sony has been the only phone I have ever sent for repair.
So if the Chinese are crap how many of the top 10 smartphone makers come from your country? And where are the "quality" phones made?
