This phone is perfect which can be compared directly with Samsung S7 on any kind of performance.
Almost all our daily need apps are already inbuilt on this phone for which we don't need to download again.
I am very happy with Xiaomi Mi 5s.
Near future, I hope Xiaomi will overtake the smartphones of all brands of the world.

Listen, I'm going through the very same comparison with the very same criteria, and so far... morebelieve me, I have the MI 5s - and I would say, don't touch it with a pole. It is a brick, it won't even let me make calls and won't let me change the locale from "China". Anybody looking to buy one, let me know - I want a HTC One. Stick with phones that are reputable!
And I have tried getting help on the online forum, not a thing. The help files are all pidgin English and I am not technical enough to get around the lack of syntax. Perhaps this just needs a more technically minded person? One the plus side, the battery and screen are A+.

moin, 07 May 2017Is Mi5 worth over one plus 3/3T, pls someone suggest me, I'm looking to buy one of these smart... moremi5 will be cheaper and just as good , but oneplus 3/ 3t will be far more reliable
moin, 07 May 2017Is Mi5 worth over one plus 3/3T, pls someone suggest me, I'm looking to buy one of these smart... moreThe 1+ 3T is a better, more expensive phone. If you think the specs difference is worth the price difference, then get it.
moin, 07 May 2017Is Mi5 worth over one plus 3/3T, pls someone suggest me, I'm looking to buy one of these smart... moreUndoubtedly don't buy mi 5. Coz it has many problem on the software. If you are looking for a good phone with lower price point,I suggest you to buy zuk z2 or mi 5s.Honor 8 is also a good choice.

Listen, I'm going through the very same comparison with the very same criteria, and so far I'm leaning towards the mi 5s. I believe the p9 has got a slightly better camera, but the mi 5s has got a far better chipset and a slightly lower price tag.
Tell me if you've got a different opinion.
Which phone should I buy Huawei p9 or xiaomi mi5s ? If I mainly use the camera, music and for text and call only.
Hi just want to ask if which is better in terms of camera and battery life? huawei p9 vs mi 5s. I am just torn between this two phones.
This is a fantastic device! I've had HTC Desire A8181 and Samsung Galaxy S3 before. Both are not anywhere near in abilities and ease of use.
MIUI is awesome. Surprisingly to me, because Samsung and HTC both taught me that vendors put tons of bloatware you will never use in a device. I can't remember bloatware in this one. And you can actually delete programs you don't want. Except for Gmail (I use Google Inbox, so Gmail is excessive).
Battery life is extremely long. After whole day of navigating with Google Maps (and using Internet in the process), talking on the phone, then some youtube in the evening, it might still have ~30% of charge left. And it charges to 100% in 1 hour. I'm so pleased and amazed with this I want to squeal in joy.
And paired with Xiaomi MiBand 2 is becomes even more awesome. Highly recommended to have this pair.
And then I remember how much I paid for this device... And I want to scream "Thank you Xiaomi for this wonderful present!"
Good hardware but flaky software. Falls over and system apps randomly stop working or hang requiring reboot. Also full of ads and pesters for email, phone number etcetera, as well as non-standard Android apps which are hard to replace with Google's.
As Xiaomi have not (contrary to the Linux GPL) released the source code for their version of the kernel, developers can't port alternative and better versions of Android than Xiaomi's MIUI.
For that reason the Xiaomi Mi 5 or a OnePlus phone would have been a better choice for me.
