Been using iphone since iphone 3. And then i decided to change to android.
At the first time, i was looking at the oppo F1 plus, the phone looks promising. But then, many people said that phone is not worth it if you compare it with his price.
Later on, I saw this phone. The spec is awesome (even if you not buying the pro edition, you still get that awesome spec). Did some review on web, i can say that the review are 50% good and 50% bad. But from my experience, eventhough xiaomi phone are cheap, but what you can get it with certain price is absolutely brilliant. There is some people do the bending test on youtube, and yes the phone does bending with right force apply to it. But heyy, who's going to buy the phone that later on you wanna bend it (unless that the reason why you buy it)
It's been 3 days with the Mi5. All i can say is the phone really do what it intend to do. The software and hardware run smoothly. After unboxing, i runs Antutu benchmark and i got score of 108000. Its quiet high if you compare to certain phone. The phone feel nice on hand, slippery a bit (recommended to using any case). The camera quality is brilliant for both rear and front camera. On the daily task, i can use my mi5 for the whole day. The interface on MIUI 7 on top of android marshmallow simply amazing. Plus the fingerprint sensor, it really open you device in the blink of the eyes. The phone heated up only when i do heavy task on it and also when i charged it. And it only take approx 1 and half hour to fully charge the battery.
Overall, the phone is amazing. Changing it from iphone is not a bad decision (for me).
No slot for SD (32GB edition, 26GB usable)
No earphone (original packaging)

Maybe someone will answer dat but i don't think anyone has broken his mi 5 in their pockets. Remember bendgate ifone 6? But if i may ask, have you ever seen a bent ifone 6? If u want to confirm it's durability, check on YouTube for tumbling, water, scratch, test for the mi5, it's a more reasonable test for durability of a fone.. Tanks
Does mi5 have IR code learning option?
Press remote to phones IR, and it learns the code ? like in vibe X3??
Does anyone have issue with phone durability... i mean does the phone crack in the pocket or something like that
The phone might be better than its competitors with respect to specs... If you feel that the time has come to take the phone to service centre, then it's better to throw the phone to some garbage boxes... Service is really really poor (@Kerala)...
Sumon, 11 May 2016I intended to buy this phone. any suggestion!!! my priority is the camera.Yes please go ahead and buy. Except network issues phone is overall a good package.

Already rumor Mill(Google mi5 sales update) suggesting Xiaomi Mi5 going on open sale from 1st.June with discounted price of 23999.
[deleted post]Tweet to @xiaomiindia and @hugobarra. Bring it to their attention. Hopefully it attracts the attention of higher ups. Good luck dear!

Sumon, 11 May 2016I intended to buy this phone. any suggestion!!! my priority is the camera.The phone is very good, and the camera if I rate back camera I will give 8.5/10 and front one I gave 8/10. IF U are looking for a camera phone then u may check OPPO series according to your budget
Lekesh, 09 May 2016Thank you so much
Can you please tell me about the cameras both and if you own it please t... moreRegarding Camera, it's a serious contender. This comes to you from a person who owns Sony Alpha A6000 and a Sony Alpha DSLR alongwith an already sold Galaxy Note 5.
First of all, the images are sharp and crisp with nice balance of color and overall texture. 4 Axis image stabilization is good but is not aggressive enough to stabilize videos, it seems the springs in stabilization component only react to very aggressive movements and not slight movements. Still its not an issue with photographs, video may be a bit shaky only practicing with camera will make u a better videographer. Front camera is good as well, no complaints here as ultra pixel really helps in bringing more light into your photos. If u ask or want to compare with S7, well if S7 is a 9.5/10, this surely is a solid 8/10. -1.5 is due to lack of RAW file support and underwhelming OIS.
Does the Mi 5 have a SMD(Significant Motion Dectection) Sensor for complete doze support?

My Final review: Last one on Mi5. Already did 3 in the same thread.
Bought on 1st. Sale on Mi5 in India.
Excellent Screen and Sunlight legibility.
(-) Today as I write I am back on iP5s and Note-4. I sold on Quikr for 21K.
Only 1 reason why I sold: SIM card connection lost. Network goes come and back frequently and you loose calls.Obviously you don't know. This happened 10 times a day (I thought may be genuine network issue) but even in my office, i started missing calls and do not know when I am ON /OFF. Cannot afford in my work. Very SAD.
Checked with service centre they treated me like a novice, Restart/Manually check (sic). Later saw on youtube almost all reviews mentioned this. Till last week was waiting eagerly for MIUI8 but now waiting for 6.0 to come to my Note4. Very sad.
A good looking phone with no excess heating, above average battery but loses out on BASIC FUNCTION. My recommendation DO NOT BUY TILL MIUI8 rectifies. You can live will all issues but without network CANNOT.
