The RAM figures for Mi5S Plus seems to be wrong - 2299 Yuan is for 4G/64G model and 2599 Yuan is for 6G/128G model. Also another point to note is that Mi5S Plus doesn't have the Ultrasonic Fingerprint sensor (it has a conventional one).
Overall I'm not that excited.... After the Note 7 fiasco, new Nexus phones rumored to be priced too high and nothing exciting from Lenovo/Xiaomi etc..... I think I'm gonna delay my upgrade and wait another 9 months for phones based on SD830.
PRICEoverMATTER, 27 Sep 2016hey?! how the hell it said about in the front there is a fingerprint sensor, then in the mi5s ... moreMi5S has scanner on front, Mi5S Plus has it on the back, not sure if the technology used is the same between the 2 or not, Mi5S is ultrasonic, not sure about the Plus.
Akalp, 27 Sep 2016It has the same camera sensor as Nexus 6p and 5x 12 mp with 1.55 micron pixels and they had gr... moreNo, 6P used IMX 377. IMX 378 is the sensor to be used in Pixel phones. this is an upgrade to what is inside the 6p.
hey?! how the hell it said about in the front there is a fingerprint sensor, then in the mi5s photos, the scanner is in the back. i hate fingerprint scanners on the back. somebody please. explain.
Nice phones, but price starts with $299 in China. In rest of the world it will be at least $599 = overpriced.

yuri, 27 Sep 2016True but you can't really compare an open platform like Android to a closed on like iOS. Hones... moreAs a matter of fact, most specs like ram, screen, soc, and maybe camera are just for numbers, currently there's no need for qhd, 4gb ram, all flagship soc, in App Store or play store. The only reason why i think all these high end specs would make sense is when there's an app for it, say god of war 4 mobile with a minimum required specs of flagship specs cus right now there's no app that the iPhone 7s, s8 or mi 5s will run that a redmi Note 3 pro won't run.
Julliard, 27 Sep 2016I don't understand the camera specs of Mi 5S. Can someone explain. It doesn't seems amazing wi... moreIt has the same camera sensor as Nexus 6p and 5x 12 mp with 1.55 micron pixels and they had great cameras.
Very aggressive pricing but they are with 99% probability only valid for China. Of course this is assuming that the device even goes for sale outside it.
ifedith, 27 Sep 2016Are you sure? Pls mention your source It shown officially during the announcement. There are screenshots on MIUI Forum as well you can look it up here: http://en.miui.com/thread-361827-1-1.html

I think what Xiaomi is doing is pretty smart on the other hand. They take away attention from the stock Android and upgrade their own skin which they have more control of, then the Android versions.
But truly, i have no issues whatsoever with 3gb ram and everything else is really only showing off, while you don't gain anything but a milisecond maybe in the performance imho.
