AnonD-515550, 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.

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....
and people said sd820 is battery hog

On the other hand - I will be updating the review with a comment about the audio quality in the recorded video samples - it's quite bad.
Way better pic processing than the S7's oversharpened mess.
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2016why the curved back??? why it should have curved back design??? whyyy xiaomiiii?? :D
note: ... moreReally ? Is this all you can do in finding flaws to a phone ? That "it has a curved back" ? Did you ever try to put your phone in a pants pocket and see the difference between a straight back and a curved back phone ?
GSMarena is in favor of XIAOMI these days (since comparing it with X performance).
In the camera section: the panorama is very good too, with accurate stitching.....etc
however, I can notice in the panorama photo that the cars and the bus are distorted and some of the buildings are not well stitched.
I AM NOT SAYING IT IS BAD, NO IT IS V GOOD ACTUALLY. I FEEL IT IS OVERSTATED by arena team
I will buy the Mi5 , if Mi5 and Xperia XA are same price in my country.
Otherwise if Mi5 is alot more expensive I will buy the XA.
XA probably will be very cheap. In 2 months it will be just 225 euro.
Mi5 design is fantastic.
Well done xiaomi.
Does Mi5 supports USB 3.1 data speed?
Like the price benefit ratio
Like the device
xiaomi is destorying others in every product category they involve...Mi TV,speaker,headset,air purifier,water purifier,hoverboard,fitness band etc
why the curved back??? why it should have curved back design??? whyyy xiaomiiii?? :D
note: bfore you comment my opinion, I'm just a person who is not a fan of curved back design, it's matter of subjective preference. Still, Mi 5 is good btw
Xiaomi is really starting to make good progress offering quality devices like this one. I used to think they were just another Chinese brand that sells cheap knockoffs They are beginning to show signs that they are just as good as any other major brand out there. Keep up the good work Xiaomi!
AnonD-259899, 17 Mar 2016Mi 5's performance makes it almost tempting to get it but then I am reminded of the size. ~5.1... moreso, i don't get yo....why are you here at gsmarena.com, don't you have some "asian tech site" in your country, wher 6' PHONES are called small packetable devices!?
and, buy the way...since you are all shorter than averige US or EU citizens, how are you carring those bricks, in backpack!? I assume that you do not holding it constantly in your hand and taking selfies, that would be totally prejudice from me, right!?
i guess small people like big things....that is kind of complex
AnonD-418816, 17 Mar 2016Mi5 has 785 favourites and s7 has 707
then why s7 is in top 10 by fans and not mi5 ??????????... morebecause it is xiaomi!
How dare this chinese phone get more like than samsung massterrace!!
s7 stupid price tag, 17 Mar 2016WOW!!!.....same S820 chipset with half than S7 price...
Galaxy S7 = 0
mi-5 = 1
Winner... morethat's right...if you are from China or India.
rest of the world have other prices...for this one, but also for S7 (and rest of the phones), because most of us are buying phones on contract with our mobile carriers.
so with on year contract (that includes services that i need anyway) that Samsung costs me 300$, and that is less then Xioami in start, even with its price in China. (it's 1:1 now)
on top of that price, if i want to buy Xiaomi, i must pay shipping cost, TAX, and seller will take some.... so it cost much more than Sammy. (game change 2:1)
and in case of any problem, i do not have service support, guarantee...or in "best case scenario" i'll have to send it back to china for reparation, and wait for month or two to get it back.
so, now is 5:1, at leas....
Mi5 has 785 favourites and s7 has 707
then why s7 is in top 10 by fans and not mi5 ?????????????????????????????????????
in my opinion xiaomi mi5 is the phone of the year.. best value
