There’s no such difference in design if we compare it with the predecessor band 4 but this band is small and light, with a rubber strap that Xiaomi delivers in every of its band which feels quite comfortable wearing throughout the day. The strap of the band uses the loop-and-clip mechanism and can fit most wrist sizes and is available in different colours sold separately.


The best improvement done by Xiaomi is on the display of Band 5. This band has 1.1 inches, OLED display which is slightly bigger than Band 4 and the screen also supports 100 per cent of the P3 colour gamut in Mi band 5.
This band doesn’t have an ambient light sensor, but the screen is pretty bright outside and is easily visible in direct sunlight. However, you have to adjust the brightness manually and overall, Mi band 5 has impressed with the display and there’s nothing to complain about it.

The company claims that Mi band 5 can run up to 2 weeks on a single charge while band 4 can run up to 20 days. However, Xiaomi says that Mi band 5 can run up to 20 days if it runs in power saving mode.
Moreover, they have made changes in changing the band. This time you no need to put the band out from the strap rather Xiaomi has added USB magnetic Charging cable, which powers the band through pins.
