1 month review of Xiaomi-Mi5: Already posted 2 review- 1 week and 2 weeks.
Excellent screen and looks.
Excellent Finger print scanner and sunlight legibility .
Near Zero lags. (None )
Battery life above average.
Heating- Yes while gaming but not a deal breaker.
Last 2 weeks faced major issues of Network lost in SIM-1 and even SIM-2. You don't realise when this happens. Saw these comments on FB/Utube as well. This is a serious issue because you have to go to Airplane mode and come back.
Once a day. Erratic touch response, you press in one area and other area responds. Thankfully all ok after restart.
Some apps (Can Knock down) don't open and crash on click. (Work well in offline mode).
Now i suggest wait for MIUI8 update on 10/5 to buy. Please hold on every week issues increasing in this phone.

I am using Mi5 for sometime now and it is so far very good... there is some issues with the memory management though (become slow if you don't close the background apps for sometime, this is an issue with MIUI and hopefully will be rectified with the new MIUI8)... Otherwise, its the best one you can get at least for the price...
Don't buy this phone, becouse in this phone network problem. battary problem, and high price chaines brand
Rapt0r23, 06 May 2016How is the battery life? Does it lasts through the day with above normal usage? Very good, can easily last a day and some more
Sakshi, 04 May 2016Mi5 has been launched in India and I have been using it from the last 25 days. Excellent spec... morehearing lots about Airtel 4g connectivity and battery life issue on 4g... can anyone substantiate. Is it a good buy at 25k and white color??
MI5 User experience - DONÂ’T BUY MI5, itÂ’s too painful after spending 25K.
In short except build quality nothing is good in MI5. We expected so much out of it but itÂ’s not even competitive with Redmi 2 Prime.
1. Heating issue: Battery Temp. Raise to 54˚C & surface of body will be to hot unable to hold in hand.
2. App. Permission not available to all apps, example canÂ’t even change WhatsApp profile photo by selecting from gallery.
3. Display light & proximity doesnÂ’t not work properly.
4. There are many other issues with MI5
All the complaints informed to MI service team got the replacement but the replaced device also having same problem.
Finally MI service team agreed that they are facing problem with this device and expected to overcome with latest update of MIUI 8.
No return in MI website, people please wait until MIUI 8 update comes or buy from Amazon at least from there you get refund OR BEST TO GO FOR IPHONE.
Rapt0r23, 06 May 2016How is the battery life? Does it lasts through the day with above normal usage? I would say it's good but not spectacular. If you play moderate-heavy 3D games or video, easily could get more than 5 hours on screen time.
