Xiaomi Note 3 Pro Prime (top of the line) died on me after 2 weeks of usage. Battery at 50% and telephone randomly shut down. Then it won't turn on no matter what I did. I saw A TON of people with battery problems and bricked phones OUT OF NOWHERE. Plus all of the tutorials I followed won't work. Xiaomi doesn't respond to my complaints. I'll NEVER EVER purchase anything from Xiaomi again, because they are releasing faulty products into the market. Worse $300 ever spent.
Rich stealer, 14 Jun 2016Just wait over half year after the SS s7 release then you can buy a used SAMSUNG almost same p... morein my country u will never get good phone in half the price. at the moment in lithuania you can buy samsung galaxy s4 for 350 eur. but not samsung galaxy s6 edge (atm the price is around 600eur) so then i will buy sgs7e in half the price and had good custoker service?. in lithuania customer service is so horrible. if you bought a product in lithuanian shop u will get warranty. but if you bought it in other country (oficial seller) u dont have any warranty. so why i should buy sgs7 after half a year without half the price (the price would be almost the same as it is now) and receiv horrible service, sorry i mean no custom service.

You will have a quality brand phone with good customer service and a lot of new feature.
Did you see these stealers sell their phone on Amazon with their name? or Do they have their high-end phone sell on store? NOOO. Other headset company will sue them.
kokoshka, 10 Jun 2016After using my Nokia 520 for 2,5 years, I`m thinking of buying a new device. I`m struggling be... moreIf you are not going to play much games than go for blackberry - q10/q5/z10/z3 etc.( dont go for priv model) blackberry are simple,sturdy and efficient models and shall fall in affordable prices these days.BB OS is way better than android.
If you're are looking for a Windows phone, go for 525 or 530.but honestly Lumia under MS is not as good as it was with Nokia.
Android phone. Go for Moto g turbo,mto x play or more recent Moto g4+. Decent ones with good performance and at great price.
Xiaomi makes good phones. Better than any other Chinese or Samsung. Go for mi5 , if internal memory is not big issue.
I will not recommend it.
After using MI5 for 3 weeks, it tell me again China manufacturers could provide you the best hardware but sucks on software. I was using xperia Z3 before and although the MI5 comes with a powerful 820 processor, the user experiences is not good. THe scrolling is clunky especially on facebook. i installed the Asus Zen home application to replace the MIUI one, and is again very rusty experience. Comeon, is a 820 processor, i could only blame when they trying to fit the stupid MIUI into Android, the skills of the software engineer must be doing a good job, they only care getting the things done, but don't care about the final quality and user experience.
I will not buy another MI phone again , even is cheap. Is a waste of the hardware using their come with MIUI and drivers.
Also, compare with the software and the how things integrate with Xperia Z3 , MI5 is out of the league, far away. Again, this is not the first time i have this experience with 'Made in China' electronics, high spec poor experience..i think they need another 50 years to learn how to make things right... or longer...
Additionally, the first MI5 i bought from the store suffer from hardware problem where it reboot every 1 hour, luckily the storefront allow me to replace with another new one.
I am so disappointed with this MI5 phone, and I will buy an Xperia X instead when it comes out the market. I know is more pricy but the user experience will be much better I am sure.
Xiaomimi5, 29 May 2016Are you sure 64gb variant black is coming ? I've been waiting months for that . Please let me know Am on the same boat, I spoke with their FB support who said that they are trying to bring the 64gb variants soon and asked us to wait. With OP3, LeMax, Asus, Lenovo soon launching their flagship phones in India .. MI will not want to miss the bus especially when their products are in demand.
ghostBJB, 13 Jun 20166 hours you are taking of is the total battery life or it is the screen on timeScreen on time, however this is using only wifi, no GPS, no sync etc.
I am using this phone for about 2 weeks with cyanogenmod 13, which i installed after i unlocked my bootloader, and i have to say it is working great, i simply love this phone. Battery life is excellent, i easily get 6+ hours os SOT every day, camera is great, it is very fast, doesnt get hot...
Alex, 13 Jun 2016I get 6 hours roughly with 2 hours of gaming daily. 6 hours you are taking of is the total battery life or it is the screen on time
NITS, 12 Jun 2016i am planning to buy mi 5. reading here the reviews.....i am feeling lyk i should not buy it. ... moreyes you should, it has the updated qualcomm 820 and adreno 530..
and also, it has a good memory for 32/64 by 3GB and 128 by 4gb.
this phone is durable because it is protected by corning gorilla 4 in front and back panel.
I bought mi5 last month from the company online. It is a good phone barring the shortcomings listed below:
1. The phone is very slippery, hence you can't use the phone without cover
2. 'Flipping the phone to silence ringtone' does not work
3. Every now and then it fails to detect the sim card. I have to reboot the phone to correct it. I have also changed the sim card for a new one.
4. Heating with normal usage.
5. Useless after sales service. I had taken my phone to their service center at Vile Parle, Mumbai. They just upgraded the software. Did not help. Staff is stupid.
this xiaomi mi 5 pro can using sim 2 for internet? i mean can they switch sim 1 to sim 2 internet and dual stanby?
ghostBJB, 12 Jun 2016What is the battery life-like... How different is it from the rn3..approx screen on timeI get 6 hours roughly with 2 hours of gaming daily.
Swamp_Lord, 12 Jun 2016Does the heating issues really exists on this device ..? Looking to buy one !It only get warm during long periods of gaming.
