MI5 User experience - DONÂ’T BUY MI5, itÂ’s too painful after spending 25K.
In short except build quality nothing is good in MI5. We expected so much out of it but itÂ’s not even competitive with Redmi 2 Prime.
1. Heating issue: Battery Temp. Raise to 54˚C & surface of body will be to hot unable to hold in hand.
2. App. Permission not available to all apps, example canÂ’t even change WhatsApp profile photo by selecting from gallery.
3. Display light & proximity doesnÂ’t not work properly.
4. There are many other issues with MI5
All the complaints informed to MI service team got the replacement but the replaced device also having same problem.
Finally MI service team agreed that they are facing problem with this device and expected to overcome with latest update of MIUI 8.
No return in MI website, people please wait until MIUI 8 update comes or buy from Amazon at least from there you get refund OR BEST TO GO FOR IPHONE.
Rapt0r23, 06 May 2016How is the battery life? Does it lasts through the day with above normal usage? I would say it's good but not spectacular. If you play moderate-heavy 3D games or video, easily could get more than 5 hours on screen time.
ABM Yo, 02 May 2016Lg g4 or motorolla moto x styleHow about Samsung S6 ? Which would be better between G4 or S6 in terms of camera comparison & Why ?

k, 05 May 2016Check if its a fake. Price looks fishy that you've quoted.The price isn't fishy at all for mi5, even after direct conversion and some charges for the import, the seller still able to earn a few hundreds of Ringgit.
k, 05 May 2016It could be a fake! So beware.Nope, it's real. You need to survey a lot to avoid buying overpriced Xiaomi in Malaysia. For the Huawei&Honor price, you can't fake it under Huawei Malaysia and always able to check it's validity of Malaysia set.
Is that the international version? I hope the Mi 6 will have LTE Band 4.. It's the band my service provider uses.
mad, 04 May 2016H7 is half the price of Mi5. H7 lacks Gyro (reqd for VR) ...otherwise its a good VFM buy actua... moreHonor 7 is half the price of Mi5???? Which country you are staying?
In my country Malaysia at the moment, Honor 7 cost RM1239, Honor 7 enhance cost RM1499, Mi5 cost RM1499 to RM1549
Don't buy it, dead pixel appeared out of nowhere in less then a month
Uj, 04 May 2016Lol.. Do u you even know the technical specs of these smartphones.. Do you even know that sams... moreIndeed MIUI is great but still it's bad to see how much the quality control has gone downhill in Xiaomi. There was a time when Xiaomi's phone were as good as many big brand phones but as for now their quality control has deteriorated.
It seems that Xiaomi is blinded by its popularity.
Mi5 has been launched in India and I have been using it from the last 25 days. Excellent specs that too even on half rates. Great Flagship phone tough competition S7. Love to have it in my hand.
EhhThing, 03 May 2016Biased.Lol.. Do u you even know the technical specs of these smartphones.. Do you even know that samsung is planning to release a new UI because their present one is a peice of trash.. MIUI is the 2nd most loved UI after IOS UI..
Tried this phone and my opinion about Xiaomi hasn't changed. For me MI3 was the last good quality Xiaomi phone, all the phones produced after that were of questionable quality. Xiaomi's quality control has deteriorated horribly with time. The software and UI on this phone is plagued by bugs, quality control is hit and miss, component quality has declined over years.
Come on Xiaomi I'm pretty sure many of us would readily pay a little more bucks for a better quality and more dependable phone instead of the all show no go phones you are making right now.
ifedith, 03 May 2016But you still get the mi5 on oppomart, honorbuy, everbuying, gearbest, spemall, etc, not only ... moreDon't forget Eglobal, Expedite and WondaMobile etc... I think I have seen the Mi5 Pro for sale on the latter.
If a store has a good Trustpilot store, it is usually safe to order from.
