Can someone help me pls...
I'm from India and planning to buy Mi5 from China.. Can i update the device to Global rom after I receive the device
Here is my summary of Mi5 after one week of intense use as my only phone
Excellent sunlight legibility
Simply beautiful phone (You have to hold this to feel).
Works super fast thanks to QC 820SD.
Immediate connectivity after flight mode.
(I had issues with iPhone 5s earlier until I restart sometimes)
Right size for reading and browsing.
Excellent ergonomics, very light and fits easily in pocket.
Fast and responsive GPS.
Some will like Easy to use MIUI interface.
Fast charging is not really fast. You need 90-100 mins from 0 to 100.
Battery is average. Will run out after 6pm heavy use but anyways you need PB or charger for all phones now.
Very slippery back, you have to use a case which does not do any justice to this beautiful device.
Heating draws your attention and drains battery fast bit not a deal breaker.
Android MM is simply not to be seen as MIUI is so prominent.
Teething problems remain for some app crash. In my case just one game Can knock down.
But the biggest issue is camera. Performance is like 13MP and not 16. Detailing gets grainy beyond 10 Mtrs.auto focus is slow. Overall well above average but not like flagship.
My recommendation you will love the ergonomics and will not regret even at 25K.
akshat812, 14 Apr 2016quad core 820 soc is much much faster than octa on mi4. there is no comparison at all.Mi4 also have quad core processor only SD 801 clocked at 2.5ghs
Ayan, 17 Apr 2016How is the audio output through headphones?Hi
It's above average. Bass levels are spread out and over a mid volume good clarity.
I'm facing issues with battery life and heat. With all wireless connections turned off, it looses a great deal of charge in a very short span and gets uncomfortably hot. I will definitely be contacting customer service soon.
akshat812, 17 Apr 2016i have been using it since a week and noticed no software problem. i think you should take you... moreTook it to service centre after 1 day of use. They said it should be flashed. But not much improvement.
By as another user said, it might be one off issue and not a general issue.

Mshesh, 17 Apr 2016If you have used mi5, you will not say this. It's very bad except for its great reviews online... morei have been using it since a week and noticed no software problem. i think you should take your mi5 to customer care if you bought it from official sale and if it is from china then your loss.
Will the company resolve these problems of low battery life, heating and software problems in future... Bcz except this the phone is good... Excellent outlook...
swadesh, 16 Apr 2016Those who are using this phone pls post ur detailed review fast...Already posted my review. Please read it and stay away from this one.
I have used many of their phones and all have great hardware with unstable software.
swadesh, 16 Apr 2016Is 4mp of front camera is enough for selfie, is this front cam is good...The phone is not worth at all. Look for alternatives.

The software is very bad. Hardware is very good. What matters in the end is you should have a phone that can be used.
I bought mi5 from their official site in India. They are not providing money back. They only service the phone if it has any issues even put of the box.
Mine happens to come with their usual software issues. The phone lost 30% charge overnight without data of wifi being enabled.
My first attempt at talking a photo also was failure as the camera was not focusing at all. After few wrong captures, the camera hung.
My opinion about the phone is
It looks excellent
Got good hardware
Crappy software as usual.
Buy it at your own risk if you have time to frequent to service centre.
Since it doesn't have external memory slot, as and when you have to reset the phone, your entire data is at risk of deletion.
