Actually, we don't need a screen this long. A shorter screen with lower aspect ratio should be sufficient for reading vertically. 4.7 inch screen should be better if reading horizontally. At least better for holding the phone comfortably.

1. Its been only 2 months . I hope the problems don't appear , but I am pretty sure they will.
2. Else , you have been one of the lucky few who have not got a faulty handset.

Inclusion of fingerprint sensor is appreciable. But we don't know how these companies store our fingerprint information. What if the only reason that the sensor has made its way to such cheap smarphones is so that their government could store our fingerprints in their database ? They might claim that the stored fp are encrypted but no guarantee that they cannot be decrypted.
There is cost involved in quality assurance and R&D which the global companies do and this obviously reflects on the end product . Tell me one standout feature which Xiaomi or any other Chin*se brand has introduced? That's right , none. They just wait for a feature to be introduced and then copy it .

There are people that i know using samsung, htc and asus among others but still facing a problem especially htc. every phone can have sone kind of problem. Buy what u want, no need for hate towards xiaomi.

If the price of components/parts of mobile came down, why no one can still beat them when they offer a phone in the same price range, grow up, stop hating them, and buy whatever phone you want to buy
MaxPayne123, 30 Jun 2016Yes , if the price was truly awesome, I would have never stopped you from getting the device .... moreYou shall thanks God since they come first to India than us. We have quite good market, but the government make it hard for them. Causing no 4G phone from XM can officially released here then the 4G is locked or removed and the price is bump a lot and swimming in the hike.
Well, we're living in Indonesia which corrupted governments can still have vacations to Europe/Japan every month even though has been caught.

You just decide your own budget and then shop around for branded devices. I think you can pick up Nexus 5X 32GB brand new . Superb security and timely updates. Plus , Google itself will support it for two years. The price is nearly as much as this one.
Ultra Maniac, 30 Jun 2016Add to that, the price will increase substantially and you will have phones which people wont ... moreYes , if the price was truly awesome, I would have never stopped you from getting the device . But if you carefully observe the pattern , even these Chinese companies have started to loot us. Please read the below observations of mine carefully and judge for yourself.
In late 2013 , Xiaomi entered the Indian market with Mi 3 . At that time , SD800 and 2GB RAM were class-leading . The build quality of the device was astonishing for the price i.e. Rs.13000. I will go ahead and myself admit that , at that price point , it was a steal.
Come to the present . We know that prices of electronic components decrease drastically over time and the processor is the only one that updates in a timely manner . The RAM here is LPDDR3 , the same tech that was used in Mi3 but an extra GB ( 3 as compared to 2). Screen is bigger in size but not resolution (size of screen does not add to cost significantly or iPads and tablets would be way costlier than iPhones and smartphones) . Processor in the current market scenario is midrange . Then why is Xiaomi asking us to pay Rs. 15000 for 3GB RAM and 32 GB variant ?
Also , these devices always launch late and never give Indian consumers the top tier device. Mi5 had been launched in india with its SD820 clocked at 1.8 Ghz but they sell it at the same price as the top specced device in China. Why are they looting Indian customers? We are actually paying more , for less!

Why do you suppose these Chinese brands sell phones at a much lower price despite packing such hardware while sacrificing the quality, etc in other departments. Not everyone can buy an Apple. And to be honest, phones sold by 'reputed?' brands like Samsung, LG, etc at these prices are a joke. Believe me, i know.
Say whatever you guys want to... But for this price its a best deal.. Sure shot buy for me.. I just can't spend my hard earned money to buy a 50k phone to usr for merely a year or so... Thumbs Up MI for this..

This phone looks good but 6.4" is too large.Waiting for more 650/652 based phones with good camera.

And I am the owner of an Mi Pad , which is big on specs but is not very smooth. Constantly lagging and hanging.
Why not go for a branded product ( not necessarily Samsung, before people start labelling me as Samsung fanboy 😜) ? HTC , LG , Apple, Blackberry etc ? They know how to make a good device and will even fight against government to protect people's data. If the cost is high , go for EMI's.
