Bought this phone on Aliexpress and have been using the phone for the past week and a half now. Fantastic phone. Love everything about it. Build quality is top notch, phone is fast and camera quality is good but suffers a little in low light settings. However, many phones struggle to deliver very high quality photos in low light settings anyway so I don't see the mi5's camera as performing much worse than other smartphones. Battery life seems to be doing well. I am a moderate to heavy user and find myself charging every 1.5 days. All in all, I am very happy with the quality of the phone considering how cheap it is. People are always trying to compare this phone to the Samsung Galaxy S7 or iPhone 6s saying that the Mi5 isn't as good as the others. While the S7 and iPhone 6s phones are about 3x the price of the Mi5, it is certainly not 3x better. At most, the Mi5 is only slightly slower and "worse" than those high end smart phones. The Mi5 is definitely worth buying
AviKhandakar, 04 Jun 2016Haha. You are a liar. 128GB version only comes in black. Nope pretty certain I have a White Pro 128GB model too, might want to check facts before calling people liars.

Lead2XL, 24 May 2016Just got this phone 2 weeks ago. A great phone all around and unbeatable value for money. I or... moreInteresting, you probably received the version with the global rom, not the chinese rom. Each version has its own pros and cons though.
I got a xiaomi mi5 but i feel the music volume through the headphones is not very loud. However the review says its very loud. What am i missing here? I am a little dissapointed at the sound quality (my galaxy s7 is much louder than this).

Overall the processing is really mature and we consider those samples among the best 16MP ones we've seen so far. On Mi5 review.
