Anonymous, 20 Mar 2016How much is samsung 32gb cost on release? How much is MI5 64GB on release? Anyway everyone ... moreOf course I aware about the cost differences between these 2 phones. What I mentioned previously are where the Mi5 fall short. As I can see, people are keep comparing these 2 for the camera performance and criticize Xiaomi for cheating them based on what they have advertised on their "4-axis OIS", I just find it ridiculous.
Can't wait to feel the gentle touch of this sexy beast. Overall one of the best smartphone till date. Don't forget nothing is perfect you just have to feel the best part and yeah India is all set to welcome this smartphone.

It's loud anf crisps, S7 just simply no match in this territory.

Samarth N8 808 user, 19 Mar 2016I like the review. Thank you GSMArena staff for the hard work. Thanks a lot. Finally, a Mi fl... moreIt's actually the exact same sensor than HTC used on their back camera, that's why everyone calls it ultrapixel
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2016sony more terrible Sony UI is very good. The MIUI is slower and many Chinese bloatware, the ram isnt good manage and will as slow as Samsung touchwiz after years.

Finally, a Mi flagship gets amazing audio output. Otherwise, I was stuck with a Redmi 2 for audio reasons only!
Camera seems amazing too, but isn't Ultrapixel a trademark of HTC?
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2016miui is terrible. bloated like lagsung and can't auto-sort application icons alphabetically. sony more terrible
miui is terrible. bloated like lagsung and can't auto-sort application icons alphabetically.
Few things to aware if you seriously consider this phone:
1. Mi5 OIS is crap compare to Samsung Flagship, video steadiness is too artificial and screwed up.(test it before you want to say I'm talking shit)
2. Low light photo/video taking is bullshit, and same level with Mate 8
3. If camera and selfie are your main things, Mi5 is not for you.
However, performance wise, temperature control, audio quality(in term of speaker/headphone), Mi5 is on par if not better than S7.
Is it just me cus i happen to find the mi5 more beautiful than the s7 edge, despite the fact that I used to think that the s7 edge was the most beautiful phone around..
sbr, 18 Mar 2016is the back gorilla glass 4?Yes it is, as per the key features section, you can also opt for the ceramic back :
"Â›Gorilla Glass 4 (32, 64GB) or ceramic (128GB) rear panel"
Excellent Hardware, Bug software? Come on!!!. WTF with QC on software.
ssbatman21, 18 Mar 2016A bit worried about its low light performance.... Although i hav used mi4 and i can say that ... moreBetter lowlight is gonna come from larger apertures and bigger pixels. The only thing we can do about that now is to use the largest mobile sensors available and putting them on 8 to 12MP camera systems. Above that, and you're gonna need special sensors like LG uses to make the colors come out right.
