it is a completely total wastage of money. the funniest thing happens that it starts giving Display problems starts just after completing the warranty period.A very bad experience. However the phone may have some good features but durability is very poor. When I took it to service center many other persons found having this same issue on other MI brands also. Durability of phone is also a key factor while purchasing and can't be ignored. Whereas LAVA has also same features and is very durable because I have also used it and have purchased for my wife. My suggestion is not to purchase this phone.

irazkurnyx, 20 Jul 2017how about the battery SOT, and battery if u use it full gaming?Battery SOT is great. Full charged battery life when playing game is great too. The problem is overheating while playing high intensive game. Uncomfortable to hold.
Very bad experience so far after a week.
Bought Mi5 from NIS-store. Slow delivery for this price, too slow. The vendor permitted to DHL "drop on door" option. Nice ah? You can't claim damage during shipping after. I'm lucky to have the phone not damaged.
On the second day of using the device turned crazy. Every time the virtual keyboard was called the attack of dozens spontaneous touching hit the phone. I have a video.
Wrought vendor support, replied with: do the factory reset. Common guys! The device is 24 hours after first booting!
OK, factory reset, same crazy attacks.
So vendor asked me to send the device back, for my money, absolutely with the most expensive service. Cost me about 20% of phone price to send back something that was broken from the box.
After one month and dozen emails finally got the phone back, paid custom taxes again. The phone accumulated about 25% more price and not yet used normally for a day.
There is no more "self-touching attacks" so far, but the device is very difficult to use.
I'm personally like Google launcher, but Xiaomi doesn't. Freezings and malfunctioning all the way. OK, back to Miui launcher.
The touchscreen is so difficult to use. Moving icon to the next screen became an Everest mission, not less than 10 attempts before it's done.
It takes about 7 seconds to screen to start response after waking up. Imaging answer the phone calls. I have to keep Bluetooth garniture on all the time to not miss calls. Because Mister Phone has to take 7 seconds of waking up.
Sometimes one wake up is not enough. I have to turn the screen off and on few times to finally get the touchscreen response.
I'm not enjoying to have this device. I'm just waiting to change it to the real phone.
I don't understand so high ratings on reviews. It's not more than really beautiful and very stupid and annoying piece of plastic.
This is my tenth phone, fifth smart and the worst ever.
Not recommend to anyone.
This is best phone i ever used.Never crashes so fast.Thank you Xiaomi for the price and performance.5 months i been using very happy.ir control usefull my TV,air conditioner,TV box all controlled now.finger print works very fast.Camera quality very good.
Is mi 5 really has usb type C in 1.0 standard? I have got one and it doesn't work with fiio k1 usb DAC. It's not problem of software or company, because on Xiaomi redmi note 3 pro (Snapdragon) it work properly. (It also works fine with Xiaomi redmi 3s) Have you got any suggestions what can be wrong?
how much screen on time it gives ...on gaming and browsing if charged to 100% ?
nnnn, 04 Aug 2017Mi5 64gb vs Galaxy s6/s7 vs Iphone 6/6s? What to bay?That's a difficult choice.
-Mi5 if you have a tighter budget
-S7 if you want the best screen/camera
-iPhone6s for speed and updates
Personally, I would buy the Xiaomi Mi 5s and put a custom ROM on it. That way I always have the latest updates, the fastest between the 3, and the best camera (if you use Camera NX HDR+, which you can download) and it isn't as fragile as the Mi5.

I have already complained to Xiaomi about this. You too complain about this. Maybe they might take this matter a bit more seriously. You can try the beta ROM for a while bcz the battery optimisation is a lot more better there.
Which version of Android could be expected with this model at the most, anyone knows???
