I bought my mi5 64gb black 5 days ago.
Great performance good battery smooth design and camera is so good.Having no sd slot is not a big deal at all
farul, 30 Apr 2016Please reply to my problem too. Is double tap to wake is buggy in your mi 5 too? Yeah it sometimes need second chance like other phones
After 3 weeks of using Mi5 ( Using Note 4 and iPhone 5s earlier)
Great display and beautiful phone.
Responsive and near zero lag.
MIUI7 is no frills and very practical.
Excellent ergonomics is day to day handling.
No complaints on network and opvoice clarity
Heating issues persist ( not a deal breaker)
Average battery and speaker phone quality.
Good camera but not flagship . Still no regrets.
If you can afford at 25K go for it. It is a good buy.
Nice. I love these reviews. I haven't looked but as a Design Engineer (formee) I would venture to say that the reviews and test are documented and enforced routine. I hope. How else can you make comparisons? Right? Are those documents open to the public or us (your fans)? Even tho you guys don't say what's best you can at least let us see why we should take your word on anything. No? I would probably add some ingenuity to what Ya got any how. But nicely done anyways.!
himalays, 30 Apr 2016how does honor 7 price compare to mi 5 ?Same. Around Rs 25k

Played with Mi4 yesterday, for SD 801 the performance is very smooth, menu's / option's are great. MIUI is great (no glitches, no lag).

Go to a mobile shop (that has working handsets) and view the menu's / option's on iphone, samsung s6 and s7, huawei P8 and G8, Mi4 and Mi5. Speak to friends / family / people in your city that have Mi5 and decide for yourself.

I had a look at Mi 4 (released September 2015), the menu's on it blow the apple and samsung away (even has voice recording). Perhaps go look at the phone and play with it before judging it (I won't comment on quality or durability - can only comment if I owned it).

Yeah, I wonder why nexus only available via internet purchase - one of the best phones ever made, why local suppliers don't sell them is puzzling me.
Why mostly iphone, samsung, huawei ?

Verizon Wireless, for example, uses 1XRTT for all of your voice calls and LTE for data. This used to be why Verizon phones couldn't simultaneously use voice and data. Verizon found a way around this with dual-radio deployments, but with VoLTE there'd be no need for that.
GSM users on AT&T and T-Mobile haven't had this issue because their voice and data streams can be processed by the same radio.
hitesh, 25 Apr 2016HI bro in what aspect, Mi5 is better than iphone 6s... also would like to know disadvantage o... moreHi Hitesh, asking people on website which phone they think is best, their answer will mostly be biased, because everyone will like a certain phone and say it's the best, even reviews by well known reviewers are biased. The best is to go to a mobile vendor (shop) and look at the phone yourself (view the menu's etc.) also ask people in your city or town, if 3 out of 10 say the phone is bad but other 7 say it's ok or great, then you have your answer (good phone).
I have just bought mi5 as i was earlier using mi3 and i liked it most so i trusted company and bought mi5. Most imp is that i was looking for VOLTE handset and when i saw mi5 is VOLTE i bought it but later when i insurted jio sim i shocked that it is not supporting VOLTE and when contacted to customer care then they replied to wait for next update version of mi5 . Now only china updated version is available so i have to wait. I think it was my bad decision to buy this one. If i had to use only data i would have prefer other handsets below 15000.

Best is to google the android version you want to update to first (before applying the update), see what they say for your model of phone (Xiaomi Mi 5).
