Fone Addict, 21 Apr 2016Xiaomi were Never known for build quality and this just proves it. Avoid.My Mİ5 bent easly on the first week i use.. front glass doesnt break but rear glass is really fragile.. use gently..
Pawan, 23 Apr 2016never buy mi phone, service is a big zero, u will never get your phone repaired by xiaomiIf anyone want to buy a cheap phone, please choose Asus, although it is also not very good but still 5 times better than mi5.
# This is a very good test..
# Simple but cover most of our nightmare regarding handling a phone.
# For me it's the burn test that's relevant.. For i use phone for gaming..
# and scracth test somewhat reassuring but not necessary since i always use case..
# Bend test is scary, but good to know not to keep it in my pant.. oh, also not relevant because i also a sleigh bag person when going everywhere.. so my phone is almost always inside a bag..
# So this kind of test will have different impact depending on the viewer habit(s)
never buy mi phone, service is a big zero, u will never get your phone repaired by xiaomi
qwerty, 21 Apr 2016is this the ceramic mi5?Is it hard to digest that $300 phone will lack some of the pros of $600 phone???? You can afford 600+ bucks go for s7 it's defiantly a better choice. I'm a college student. S820,very decent cam, all day battery, super fast fingerprint sensor, fast charging all for 300 bucks!! Works for me. I can live with slightly poor build. You can't!! get Sth else.
I'd rather buy Xiaomi and when it broken, i'll buy 2nd one rather than buy S7 once,
since xiaomi price is more or less half the price of S7.
I believe durability will be longer with xiaomi when comparing the same price..
hahaha that's why it's made in china.
Low cost or being cheap should not be an excuse in delivering quality products.
Mantra, 22 Apr 2016Cheap Chinese? That's why the other made in china phones on the left of his list survived? h... moreYeah... You read me right... Cheap Chinese... Everybody in the world knows the quality of a chinese product... Don't kid yourself Man as to thinking they invent... They hack and copy... They even sometimes take on an English Name for their companies, so everyone will think they provide good quality products... But all are bootlegs, cheap copies, no original ideas... only original from them are their dimsums..
Veteater, 22 Apr 2016You racist fool, pretty much everything comes out of china these days, even the items that are... moreHe's right... Only 99% of chinese products are cheaply made, cheap in quality. Good luck with the 1%. LoL...
Lol, 22 Apr 2016Are you sure? I mean, we are talking about JerryRig here, obviously if I had talked about the ... moreYes I'm sure. At least I read it that way from the way you wrote. And I'm being honest here, just saying - not that I go dishonest at any single occasion.
That is why I do not really trust most of the chinese products esp phones. China products = low quality. Ive been exposed and even used chinese products because it everywhere in our country.
I wonder how ceramic version of Mi5 Pro/Plus would look in a test like this. Most likely better, but it would be nice to see.
No need to argue, either it bends or not, scratch or not, break or not, those with the will to buy will definitely buy, and many will surely use this phone over a yr without any problem, sentiments aside, that's just the fact, xiaomi has been really great in the past but I won't recommend this phone for someone working in a factory or at high places rather for people that only presses computers in the office, ðÂŸÂ˜Â‰
ethereal, 22 Apr 2016Not quite! It's more like YOU have zero ability to properly write something easily readable... moreAre you sure? I mean, we are talking about JerryRig here, obviously if I had talked about the guys in the article I'd have pointed it out?
Lol, 22 Apr 2016Yep, you just confirmed you have zero ability to read. I claimed that he (Jerry) bought anothe... moreNot quite!
It's more like YOU have zero ability to properly write something easily readable while keeping confusions to the lowest. You nowhere mentioned that you were talking about 'Jerry' for both the cases. The article clearly shown that two different guys were testing the same device.
Tech.analyst, 22 Apr 2016come on man.... i mean the brain..........Brain? You mean the company is 100% Chinese.... Well look again at the list, you will see the Mate 8 (huawei) Oneplus X, Honor 5X those are Chinese companies. But also in that list some of them are designed and made in China by Chinese designers. http://oi68.tinypic.com/2njlcmw.jpg
Xiaomi Mi 5 bend test is not a big deal because it does not cost a fortune like the iphone....
The Iphone 6 plus bend scandal on the other hand was a big deal. Because that useless phone was around 1200$.
Xiaomi Mi 5 is $300. So give it a rest and stop with you're nonsense. Because its not true.... Lots of Chinese products are good quality.
