Description:
------------
If MySQLi fails it must return a fatal error. A Warning is not enough.

?>


Expected result:
----------------
Fatal error: mysqli::mysqli(): (28000/1045): Access denied for user 
'invalid'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /- on line 3

Actual result:
--------------
Warning: mysqli::mysqli(): (28000/1045): Access denied for user 
'invalid'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in /- on line 3

A fatal error can not be handled in any way, so the user would get an empty page (as every serious production system has display_errors off, else it shows confidential info)

Instead you have to check for error which gives you the possibility to create a nice error page shown to your users.
