I used mi5 for around one year without any doubt that is the best fone I ever have much better than galaxy s6 I had in past. More battery and keep a better charge. camera quality is very good. no hanging or freezing. the only problem was power button position not greet.
Five Star, 24 Mar 2017Whats the best way to import the Mi6 into the UK? Ive used Geekbuying before and everythin... moreUse AlliExpress. And if you've got luck, ChinaPost will loose it and they'll refund you while still delivering it. So you can get a free one, basically. I had that kind of luck on Ali very often.
Haswell, 24 Mar 2017I'm recently interested to learn about Xiaomi but 2 questions I'm still researching:
1) How r... more1: Materials on high-end devices are premium (Mi Mix has ceramic) but, you know, this is a chinese company trying to push out as much devices as possible. At this price point, you'd except durabiliy until the successor comes out.
2: Chinese OEMs do use heavy custom ROMs, but you get a lot of RAM anyway (half of it only for the OS, but you'll never need the rest without quad-multi-windowing). You should look for videos describing MIUI, sonce custom ROMs can please half of people and be a deal-breaker for the others. I personally prefer TouchWiz (Lollipop and Marshmallow) and not the new Grace UX. But some OEMs provide a theme store, granting you wih an ever-expanding list of themes modifying your whole UI.
The prices looks great but I wouldn't take the chance of using these.Had a bad experience with the Mi Mix. Warranty is a huge problem. And other hardware problems occured. And no, there was no misuse.
I'm recently interested to learn about Xiaomi but 2 questions I'm still researching:
1) How reliable is the build quality of these phones?
2) How good is the MIUI in its recent versions? (I've read many times that it is not RAM friendly. i.e. it's a very heavy skin)
If I'm satisfied with my findings, I may opt for the Mi 6 Plus model
Which one is better? The 4gb ram Mi 6 Plus or 6gb ram Mi 6? The pricing is too close. The cheapest Mi 6 Plus is actually cheaper than the most expensive Mi 6.
Last time when Xiaomi launched it's Mi5 it was pricier in India than China. I hope they launch in India at the same price as in China.
They did it again! Cheap price,good specs,nice build and lots of storage!
Personally i like xiaomi mi 5 more than one plus 3 even though the mi 5 cracks like a cracker. (Jerryrigeverything)
Xiaomi should stop making 32GB flagships because for a flagship which can record 4k and what not, and do not have expandable storage, 32GB is very low. even Apple made its base storage 32GB. And Apples base storage is always in sufficient for the time and that is only for those who want an iPhone not use it.
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2017Try Aliexpress, i bought my mi5 from there, and got weekly OTA updates (Global Developer ROM)Aliexpress is recommended. I got my mi 5with good price and original firmware. Happy with its performance. I can't wait for mi 6.
Then they'll launch only 32GB version in India which will not sell well because storage is much important here and losing many customers. Mi5 didn't sell well here coz people want good storage if there is no SD card. India is different than other major markets because not many PPL use laptops here so smartphones are our primary storage devices.

I wish they'd re-open in our country. I'm tired of seeing unofficial resellers jacking up the price of Xiaomi products.
Rons72, 24 Mar 2017Xiaomi is not intended to sell this phone outside china, so why bother? Same case here with i... morexiaomi gives good updates so dont lie about buggy software. xiaomi is only slow on os updates not on bug fixing updates
