Rex Tech, 22 Sep 2016Yeah.I always have some tea with me while using my Mi5 :3Well, I suggest not carrying any liquids near your Mi5, because, unlike the iPhone, Mi5 is not water resistant either.

G2-USER, 22 Sep 2016Bad camera, bad battery optimization. So xiaomi is only thinking about overclocked 820, and bi... moreeven with "bad battery optimization", mi5 actually manage to get Endurance rating 92h, while iphone 7 get Endurance rating 61h. i wonder if mi5 battery optimization is the same as phone 7 :p
kevin97, 22 Sep 2016But I can bet the iPhone doesn't crack like a biscuit :)well said. but iphone have a down to with bendgate, samsung with exploded battery, etc. so every phone(brand) has it flaw somewhere, there is no perfect phone for everybody. but a great company will learn its mistake and fix it. just like apple did, and i hope xiaomi can fix its flaw in mi5. let see if xiaomi can fix this in their next phone.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2016You pay less, quality surely suffers.some is true, but sometimes, you pay more because the expenses in brand/marketing of the product too. so not all you pay is for the quality of the product.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2016And iphone on top of the chart for now. Is it still sad if I refer to it? Or should I not be b... moreYes IOS is superior in some ways to android.but they also lag behind Android in features.
-IOS only supports limited video formats(m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats)
-They dont have a proper file management.Almost all of that happens through iTunes Sync -But i have heard you cant sync with a second computer without losing the data you sync from first computer
-They have inferior cameras compared to galaxy flagships nowadays
They dont have proper multitasking aka Multiwindow.
Xiaomi mi5 was one good looking phone.But India will always get the base model of these phones.They should release pro version as the same time they release base model.Maybe they does that with these version
I can sense the butthurt from the iSheep from these comments.
You paid 700$+ becoz you saw the great Geekbench score and now that you see a chinese company making the same score,so you are crying for your money wasted.It's ok,don't cry on the comments by saying "Who cares about numbers,it's a bad phone,trash talking his camera".
Iphone is the same as Xiaomi,they focus on the processor while not focusing on other aspects.Their cameras are good but not as Samsung's,no sd card slots,no headphone jacks,easy finger prints on their back and many many cons are only deleted by the amazing speed and performance by the great chipset.Xiaomi is doing the same,but it's doing better deals for their customers for the price,sd card slots,great ram and rom,great managment of their battery and ram and cares A LOT about multi tasking,and they don't have finger prints on back.Camera is average as others said in comments and great for an average users,by far not bad.
For the price it's worth it and iphone users won't be in a disadvantage either.1 bad thing i have to say for Xiaomi is that they don't give the next android upgrade fast.PLus to add up,the score on iphone is high becoz it has high rom included since they don't give an sd card slot.Add up the sd card to up to 256 gb in the xiaomi and you'll get a higher score and more than 164,002.
iPhone is great,Samsung too ,but trash talking about Xiaomi with butthurt comments or getting paid to do it,won't change the fact that we are getting a great phone from Xiaomi soon and isn't a way to do it.
Instead of hating the comments,make a list of questions,pros and cons about their phones and share ideas.

aqours, 22 Sep 2016what i care from xiaomi is a solid build phone, because my late redmi note 2 has some issue wi... moreStarting from Redmi Note 3, all Redmi family has metal build. I'm not sure whether the metal build will be brought to Mi family as well, but metal tends to absorb heat making the device really hot when pushed and also adds weight which might not be expected. But perhaps 129g for a 5.15" phone is indeed too light. iPhone 7 is only 4.7" and has a weight of 138g.
Grey1213, 22 Sep 2016Would be interesting to see if xiaomi launches it with nougat. And also how thick it ends u... moreIf you see the teaser image some time ago, yes, it's shipped with Android Nougat.
iphone 7 just threatened from MI 5 imagine what misery would come out of iphone which already not greatest in terms of sound and camera and battery after launch of SD 830 and whatever next Exynos chip is(i think naming it 9540 or 9880 seems reasonable). i just want to say that apple should do something about its products and fix sales problem it faces (i assure you it's real when it comes in form of charts and tables)

So you have 1000 mAh phone that can last a week? Ah, so you're ancient Nokia user... I admit it then :p
minori_aoi, 22 Sep 2016Love the cam on my MI5, especially the front one.The back one also does great job, HHT mode takes great capture on low light, manual mode also nice for long exposure and other photography techniques. "Bad" is only for those who can't use it correctly.
