AnonD-82844, 10 Aug 2017Like somebody uses that radio today,omg.....Yes, some of us do because we are out in the field, working away from cities, places where we can't get a mobile signal for media streaming. Sadly way too many manufacturers don't seem to think that there are people who work out of cities and require a good antenna to get a mobile signal at all, instead they seem too focused on making phones that if you leave the suburbs by more than a mile you can't use the thing to even make a call.
Please note that the US version does not officially support bootloader unlocking. You have to use a workaround to unlock it.
Get the file from here:
Unzip it, then:
fastboot flash xbl xbl.elf
fastboot flash aboot emmc_appsboot.mbn
Then reboot and do the bootloader unlock command.
This phone is amazing once it's running LineageOS.
Hi the specs say it has FM Radio....can someone confirm it does..
What about Gorilla Glass....

If you ever buy a Le 2/3
Please, change your ROM, it is the key to fully enjoy that phone! The stock rom is a piece of shit!
Install BB72's ROM from XDA forums ;)
If I ever had tested that phone with original stock ROM, i would NEVER EVER buy it!
Change the ROM to unlock 110% of this phone!
I'm a bit in my mind about the product. The first pictures taken by the device are not good and look hollow and lifeless. Second, the device somehow does not respond well to the touch.
On the other hand, the device is very fast and looks good.
GSMarena... Where is the Battery life test? Where is the review?
Best bang for your buck this phone.
Performance- Awesome. 161711 score on Antutu
Build Quality- Awesome. SOLID metal construction. Acts as a heat sink too..
Camera- Abit meh unless you install OpenCamera app.
Battery- Lasts till you sleep. With quickchargers, this phones doesnt need a bulky powerbank
Stability- 3 months in on mine . Never misses a beat although mine is a 6GB RAM version.
Fingerprint sensor- Abit slow. New firmware in May have improved it alot.
GPS- Locks in less than 15 seconds
It has Gorilla Glass 3.
Why sometimes gsmarena.com excludes things which are presented exactly on the producers page?
1232, 14 Mar 2017both shit in cameratrue hahaha. its not really satisfying but ... it's an ok cam
What you folk fail to realise is the dodgy LeEco software can be flashed for a much cleaner ROM. There you go
Lead2XL, 27 Apr 2017Xiaomi Mi 5 has way better battery life than any OP phone, so it depends on what you want. based on my experienced The battery of le pro3 is really superb. I used this smartphone for 6mos. now and i don't have any complaint regarding performance/ speed is very good` and affordable and yet powerful. if you only knew how to use it well maybe you will understand what i am saying. Mi5s is great smartphone too.

-) "the front camer... moreFor your information. Although Mi Mix survived bend and scratch tests it didn't survive the drop test. Ceramic used on Mi Mix was too brittle and cracked easily. If Mi5 Ceramic Edition uses the same ceramic body as Mi Mix then it would fail the drop test too.
Mi5 didn't fail the bend test due to weak body, it failed due to its weal chassis made from low grade and brittle aluminium alloy. And remember when the chassis is weak no body panel can protect a device.
Do not buy this phone. This is kind of junk which fell prey to cheap manufacturing and finishing. Maybe you look at the phone and see all the features at a plus which in reality are not how they work.
There are several complains (on leeco forum, on leeco.re, on xda) about this phone going dead unpredictably (just like how LG G4 had bootloop issue). This phone set has no unbricking measures on shelf and all u have to do is bear the cost of delivery as well as recieving the phone set back with extra customs tax for the sake of repair/recovery.
Do no buy this phone as if you were out of warranty you'll be left on your own. Its just another 270$ into chinese crap which isn't durable.
