Sure, but limiting its LTE-bands is IMHO over the top. Otherwise I would have tried one myself. I thought these Qualcomm modems were world-standard, alas.
I'm totally in to see the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor in action
pedros43, 22 Jun 2016Not a very good idea the mi5 might break in half if you apply to mutch pressureor b4 you ever get to do anything like that the trillions semiconductors of mi5's prossessor ll tear you apart like a sudarsan doe's in Roll no 21 in Cartoon Network
all suparphones's speakers and microphones can do ultrasound enabling them to be a compact RADAR or 3D motion sensor and object scanner with just a software update. .I know how 2 do it, in-fact I do it all the time
The phones are pretty steady. Battery life is also good.
I only have two serious grudges about Xiaomi - Number one is of course their flash sales, blink and its out of stock. And 2 - which I guess a lot will disagree is their over agressive power saving and thus disabling data on mail apps too often....
At least the size of the screen should be increased to 5.5" without it the Mi 5s will not be worthy for a buy.

All the variants of Mi5 are still not available. What's the point if you can't bring it to the market in time and make it available freely. Now you have this. Waste of time.
[deleted post]Haters gonna hate. My Mi 3 has served me well since day 1, surviving the drops that I've put it through without serious damage; my mum's Redmi Note 3G and Mi 4i have pretty much gone through hell and still work just fine; my Mi 5 Pro feels and looks amazing. Not going to damage it anytime soon, but I doubt I'll ever make it bend.
Some complain about the phone being "too fragile", but does anybody ever take out the phone they use and start applying pressure on it with the intention to make it bend? Such levels of pressure are -highly- unlikely to occur during normal usage.
We've got to realise that when you purchase a $300-500 smartphone, you'll have to accept some compromises. You pay for what you get, and while Xiaomi's phones aren't perfect, it's hard to deny the value you get with each purchase.
So many phones are coming out of the woodwork, this is insane! Companies gotta chill and release fewer phones and streamline their product lineup.
Pressure sensitive display are crapple gimmick rubbish. Long press ftw.
