Mi4 was a masterpiece that stood in time better than few other phones. At present I have Marshmallow installed on it and it's faster than ever. A testament of how far and away good engineering and software support can go.
Mi5 on the other hand is meeeh. Longer body, smaller battery for the size, lower ppi, same 3gb of ram despite ram (and not cpu) being the most important thing for every day performance. Far more expensive than mi4 and now this!?!?
You dissapointed me Xiaomi, better redmi 3 pro ... it costs Dar less and probably gives you more.
Like he said you can use a cover but i don't think that a cover can save this crap from bending if in case we fall wearing a tight jeans and a mi5 in a pocket...juss imagin what will happen... BOOM! Lol...
Polycarbonate is far better then metal don't copy apple guys copy Old Gold Nokia's Instead....
Though still a lover of Xiaomi i have Mi3 and i've dropped it tons of times nothing happened till now maybe cz of it's GOLD NOKIA inspired Polycarbonate Unibody..
My heart shattered when looking at this easily fracture phone. This phone is too fragile to call it's just bend. Wait for mi6 guys, they must improve its strength because they'll take lesson from this. They must feel unease right now because the device just launched to the public, this might affect its sales.
I'm so much depressed watching the mi5 break into pieces.
Dono how they manage to spoil such 😖
ethereal, 22 Apr 2016Dude, you lost your credibility when you mentioned 'Lol' in your name! Not to mention how igno... moreYep, you just confirmed you have zero ability to read. I claimed that he (Jerry) bought another 6P and didn't burn, scratch or crack it and it performed just as bad in the bend test.
AnonD-476545, 22 Apr 2016Not surprised.... you forget to look back side... its "Made in China"Not a surprise? Really then what about the rest that are also made in China and survived?
And you call you're self "Tech.analyst" lol!
Not surprised.... you forget to look back side... its "Made in China"
Nice....what they are telling like... its born from sky....
now look what happened.... its really "made in China"
buy something else....
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2016Cheap means nothing. Oneplus 2 passed the same bend test. Iphone failed.
It's just Xiaomis... moreOne plus 2 didn't even have NFC, and it cut a lot of other corners as well. And one plus 2 wasn't even that cheap.
Only problem with mi5 is it bends easily.
LOL, 22 Apr 2016This is just an example of a cheap chinese phone. Cheap in quality - a typical chinese quality. Cheap Chinese? That's why the other made in china phones on the left of his list survived?
You're comment in cheap mate. ;)

Anonymous, 22 Apr 2016do your research before buying.
and for the love of GOD, don't be a fan-boy/girl. you're d... moreI agree. Being a fan is one thing, but being a fanatic is another thing. These fan boys will do anything to protect their "idol" without even realizing they are not doing justice to anyone, incld themselves.
And to some people who say "Who will try to snap a smartphone like that ?".
The answer is, you will.....when you put it in your pant's pocket, where majority of men usually do. In fact, the pressure in your pant's pocket will be much greater than the pressure applied by your fingers, because you will put pressure of your whole upper body on it. If it snaps even with your finger, you can imagine what will happen in your pant's pocket.
I'm sure , some fan(atics) will talk back telling "don't put in your pant's pocket. It's simple". Well, in that case, you will probably have to tell Xiaomi to put a warning on the back of the phone "Not suitable for pocket use", which will make Xiaomi to be the first phonemaker ever to give such warning".
Its funny that the other phones of his left list that passed the test are also made in China. lol! What a fail video.
No he is not right. 99% of our electronics are made in China. Most of them are very good quality. I have had German made laptops (Siemens) the plastic was so cheap it cracked after 2 month of use. After that i bought a Asus laptop (Made in China) and it lasted me for well over 3 years. I own a Xiaomi Note 2 and the quality is outstanding.
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...
Only idiots would bend their phones like that. Lol.
Xiaomi is cheap - but it is way better than all other phones in the market in terms of performance.
do your research before buying.
and for the love of GOD, don't be a fan-boy/girl. you're doing the co or yourself no favor.
Cheap means nothing. Oneplus 2 passed the same bend test. Iphone failed.
It's just Xiaomis chosen design. Thin + light while keeping high mah battery.
How many need to worry about bending phone like this? It's a moot point for 99.9% of consumers unless you sit on your phone often.
