Couple of years ago in the android realm was Samsung VS HTC.
How things change so fast?! This year will be Samsung vs Xiaomi.
Mi5 3gb Ram, 32gb storage already sold in Indonesia around USD 495 (via online store), not too interested for 5" phone
yo, 17 Mar 2016because it is xiaomi! How dare this chinese phone get more like than samsung massterrace!!because its giving same spec at half price
Impressive. But being a moderate user, the Mi 4S is actually sufficient for me. I just hope it's camera is as good although I will miss the IS a little. What got me is the better design (for my taste), back placement of fingerprint sensor and of course the lower price.
kevin97, 17 Mar 2016Really ? Is this all you can do in finding flaws to a phone ? That "it has a curved back" ? Di... moreCan you feel the humor on it, buddy? It was intended for joke, like "curved design? Nooo"
I just tired with all retarded comments or bashing comments from trollers, its a sarcastic humor, Im not saying its ugly nor saying curved design is flaw.. And as I said bfore, mi5 is good, can you read? Why so serious?
I can't fault the Mi5, personally a removable battery would have been a bonus, but very impressed with all aspects of the phone that suit my needs perfectly.
Abhimanyu27, 17 Mar 2016You guys should do a camera shoot out with all the recent flagships: Galaxy S7, LG G5, iPhone ... moreWhy not use the photo compare tool?
Mi5 vs S7 vs Z5
Mi5 vs Note5 vs 950
The Mi5 is impressive, quite clean, but damn that 950 has outstanding edge-to-edge sharpness and very clean output.
The audio output is one of the loudest and has one of the best quality sound. Well done xiaomi, and why not get into the home audio speakers for next year rather than getting into air purifiers and hover boards business. Well I personaly think home audio speakers matches your core business more... :)
I think you need to show the power of quick charge 3.0 of snapdragon 820 vs the others including exynos s7, and the older quick charge 2.0 in snapdragon 810/808/805/801
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2016so, i don't get yo....why are you here at gsmarena.com, don't you have some "asian tech site" ... moreThat must be strong stuff you are smoking or you are just plain ignorant. First I am not Asian, I am European but I share the choices of the Asian market. North American market is indeed a bunch of whiners with inflated egos that don't have much worth in them, just like you self. Asians are not all small in figure, Northern Chinese for example are tall people than southern Chinese and this is just one of many such examples to dismiss such nonsense. You are ignorant of the rest of the world :D You American? Would explain a lot.
Contrary to popular belief among the wildly uneducated, 6" phone isn't a brick at all in any part of the world, fits very easy in mens pant pockets let alone a womens hang bags. Funny you are the first to even mention it, maybe your pant pockets are small? Are you like under 4 foot? Just curious.
Oh and you do realize this site has more Indian visitors than anywhere else? 35.7% as it stands today on Alexa, while just 5.6% from USA. Even Pakistan is ahead of the USA (north America). If you didnt know India is part os Asia, so why don't you take that good advice and search for an American arena or North American arena or something hmm? Seems only fair since you suggested this lame idea lol
ifedith, 17 Mar 2016Forget it, it's a very very very much flagship killerTrue. Xiaomi have provided an awesome phone to us in Mi 5. At this price range Samsung, LG & Apple appears like robbers who want to steal our money by providing more or less the same specs & quality at 2x to 3x the price of Mi 5.
Being an Indian, we are blessed by Chinese Gods to have the latest Xiaomi, Lenovo, LeTv/ LeEco & other Chinese branded flagship smartphones at rock bottom prices with full support for after sales service and warranty. Mi 5 is a must buy for me.
[deleted post]If you're asking for a website where you can get mi5 then you can check www.honorbuy.com or oppomart website.
John1134, 17 Mar 2016Same here. It's good considering the price point but it isn't really a flagship killer.Forget it, it's a very very very much flagship killer
Abhimanyu27, 17 Mar 2016You guys should do a camera shoot out with all the recent flagships: Galaxy S7, LG G5, iPhone ... moreWe are waiting for the LG G5 to arrive any day now. VS articles are in the works, too.
Maybe we'll do a shootout later on. We don't have the Lumia 950 around for now, so don't get your hopes high on this one.
Kyle K., 17 Mar 2016No one can stitch moving cars in a panorama - not Apple, not Samsung, not Xiaomi. And I double... moreYou guys should do a camera shoot out with all the recent flagships: Galaxy S7, LG G5, iPhone 6S+, Note 5, Mi 5, Lumia 950 XL, Xperia Z5.. Just include the flagship from every OEM out there. Should make an interesting read!
Really? better than the S7 camera? Everything nearly nearly seems that MI5 is just shy short of the s7 package....
