My brother has a Mi 5S (black, 64GB.) Amazingly, we got it for only $98 (near mint condition. I guess the seller didn't know much about the Mi 5S, as other Mi 5s' are sold for around $200 used in my country).
Videos are too shaky when compared to even the Xperia Z5-series.
And the recent set of MIUI version updates introduced noticeable throttling in heavy games.
Other than those issues, this has been a good phone. It lasts about half-a-day with him on above-moderate use.
Does mi 5s support usb c audio? I brought a cheap usb to 3.5 audio jack, but it doesnt recognise it at all even i have unchecked the 'disable usb audio' option, anyone have a clue that will it works while using a xiaomi cdla headphone?
mothy, 01 Feb 2017mi5sHi monty, have you used both Mi5 and Mi5s? From my research it seems that Mi5 still produces better photos but I have not used any of them and am actually deciding which one to buy based on the camera performance. It seems that the OIS on Mi5 contributes a lot to better photography.
I bought this phone two days ago.And as i expected the Fingerprint is not so good,sometimes even doesn't work at all,so i have to set it again .MIUI is 188.8.131.52. Is this problem on every phone? I read somewhere that new versions of MIUI solves this problem.Does anyone know is that true?Thanks for answer.
Adit, 05 Apr 2017No, read the review again. I think it is gorilla glass 4.
Impressive except the glass protection and LCD display where the OnePlus3T is superior but more expensive.
Zax, 23 Feb 2017Screen for mi 5s use gorilla glass 4 ?No, read the review again.
AnonD-564674, 25 Oct 2016LOL, U mad? Why? Mi5 was a masterpiece, BUT its body is FRAGILE, as both back & front are ... moreNicely done ..
With your description help me to decide Mi5s rather than Mi5. I've book the Mi5 then cancel it right away and goes to purchase Mi5s.
I'll take 4/128 ofcourse, i need large space, i'm gonna use it for my online shop.
I'm good on taking pictures, my cute 32" tv has a remote, my air conditioning has a remote, i always bring my small beast powerbank and compact power adapter everywhere i go, why would i go with something than can shattered in two pieces when i drop it? .. Lol.
Last but not least, the design is cool!! Love it!
