It's a very good phone all around. But IMO, the design could be better...
Hitesh, 08 Jul 2016thanks a lot 3rdWeeksExperience bro. can you please tell what is free ram? in 4GB version and ... moreThe heating issue is only significant when updating the latest MIUI version, otherwise, it is not an issue at all. I'm not sure whether is still the same or not if you are a hardcore gamer.
I'm using 32GB (22.78gb user available) variant with 3gb ram. The available user ram is around 2.1GB.
Hitesh, 08 Jul 2016thanks a lot 3rdWeeksExperience bro. can you please tell what is free ram? in 4GB version and ... moreI have 3gb ram.. It about 1.3-1.5 gb free in ram.. No overheating issue with very heavy browsing, gaming, whatsapp, and other social media. Very satisfied

3rdWeeksExperience, 06 Jul 2016The phone eventually can stay up to 3 days if you only use it for whatsapp and simple browsing! :)thanks a lot 3rdWeeksExperience bro. can you please tell what is free ram? in 4GB version and 3GB version? and when its get heated? during browsing or whatspp usage is it gets heated? is it heating significantly?
This is my opinion, if you dont get mi5 pro or any other chinese flagship phone with their official website price they are just not worth buying... a mi5 pro is selling close to Us$600 in a well known internet reseller, with those prices it will be better to forked out a bit more for a proper flafship....
Suhail221, 07 Jul 2016Where do I get original xiaomi mi 5Sadly, it's up to your luck.. I live in Indonesia, so this thing is easy to get. There's no official Xiaomi distributor.. so the trick is, you buy from the well known distributor that ask for slightly higher price then the rest. Chance is, the phone is a real global ROM version, and they provide better after sales services.
But if you happen to buy a malware-ridden hacked Chinese ROM version, you can just unlock the bootloader and flash the official global ROM. The process is not that complicated
Mi Daniel, 05 Jul 2016How can you say EMUI 3.0 is better than MIUI 7 ? As far as I know , since my cousin used a P9 ... moreThen he's one out of a million, I've never had a crash on my Huawei device. I could find you an example of a MIUI device crashing just as easily.

joy, 03 Jul 2016which phone is the bst mi5 ya oneplus 3 mi5........ram managment aint good in op3.........an ota update should come out for this in few days
raahuul, 05 Jul 2016guys oneplus , vivo & oppo all are owned by one company called.. bbk electronics, so dont... moreLet me clear this up a bit, OPPO and VIVO do come from a single company called BBK , but one plus is another matter , oneplus borrow OPPO's production factory to produce its products , and the result is OPPO gets some royalty
Kuwait, 03 Jul 2016Hi Its android with miui launcher just like Htc with sense launcher or samsung with touchwiz!Xiaomi do having negotiation to have a mi5 with windows os edition , just like the past mi4 . so basically it has 2 os variants soon or later
big-G, 03 Jul 2016How could you say MiUI is like a stok Android.Its a cheap copy cat of IOS.And have no standard... moreIf your Mi5 was the one that come with a hacked version of xiaomi Chinese ROM, then yes. It would be bugy and crashed a lot. But since mine come with original global ROM, stability was never an issue. This phone runs smooth and fast. pffft.. "a cheap copy of iPhone" was what apple said when they sue samsung and get their ass kicked in court.. so what if it felt similar? apple wasn't exactly a poster boy of originality anyway
