Wild1, 18 Jul 2019Best phone ever.Agree, best phone I've ever used. Great camera, great battery life , it gave me 7 hours of continues even after 2.5 years of use. Great community, and have a bunch of excellent developer. even now there is a 4.4 kernel working for mi5.
The only minus might be no IP rating.
The only phone i didn't regret to buy.

you can try this tool and see for yourself:
Very good size and spec phone. only problem is MIUI, keep that on marshmallow MIUI 8.1.4, anything above for MIUI for mi5 is slow. otherwise just use lineage OS officially supported OS and that will be like new phone.

Problems with RAM. i am writing on messenger and i want to open the calculator. while i had opened a page on google browser before. in some cases randomly the messenger will just vanish while im writing. apps close automatically or work very very slow. sometimes i press something and i wait some seconds for it to open. if i press to open an app by mistake i start swearing. because i have to wait for it to open and then i press the close button and then have to wait for it to close again. its very annoying. i had these problems since i bought it new in july 2017. im going to get another phone. but i want to give this to my dad, thats why i was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to make it slightly better. my dad uses phones only for youtube and calls. anyone had this issue? any solutions? thanks
There are some issues in this model. Shutdown and frozen of the screen. We trying to solve now.
Great phone for the money. I have been using it for 2 years and no major issues. It is becoming a bit old and may need to change, but overall is great.
issue of motherboard ............is their any one with damaged fon whose motherboard is working pls contact ....indian model 3gb 32 gb mi5
Amazing phone. Served me well for 3 years but now that the updates have stopped it has started randomly turning off and doing old-phone-stuff... Might have to switch soon.
Worst customer service in india.
Authorised service centres don't know to find root cause of the issue.
For new mobiles they say fluid issue hence not covered in warranty
For mobiles out of warranty ( after 1 YEAR) , they tell its a mother board issue and need to replace mother board
