Uj, 04 May 2016Lol.. Do u you even know the technical specs of these smartphones..

There was a time when Xiaomi's phone were as good as many big brand phones but as for now their quality control has deteriorated.
It seems that Xiaomi is blinded by its popularity.
Mi5 has been launched in India and I have been using it from the last 25 days. Excellent specs that too even on half rates. Great Flagship phone tough competition S7. Love to have it in my hand.
AnonD-492431, 03 May 2016Biased.Lol.. Do u you even know the technical specs of these smartphones.. Do you even know that samsung is planning to release a new UI because their present one is a peice of trash.. MIUI is the 2nd most loved UI after IOS UI..
Tried this phone and my opinion about Xiaomi hasn't changed. For me MI3 was the last good quality Xiaomi phone, all the phones produced after that were of questionable quality. Xiaomi's quality control has deteriorated horribly with time. The software and UI on this phone is plagued by bugs, quality control is hit and miss, component quality has declined over years.
Come on Xiaomi I'm pretty sure many of us would readily pay a little more bucks for a better quality and more dependable phone instead of the all show no go phones you are making right now.
AnonD-500788, 03 May 2016But you still get the mi5 on oppomart, honorbuy, everbuying, gearbest, spemall, etc, not only ... moreDon't forget Eglobal, Expedite and WondaMobile etc... I think I have seen the Mi5 Pro for sale on the latter.
If a store has a good Trustpilot store, it is usually safe to order from.
What is use of buying Mi5 mobile hand set online when there is no options to choose colour. Only white colour is available. No gold colour.
AnonD-259759, 04 May 2016Honor 7 is a bit cheaper unless the importer is willing to sell you the Mi5 with original price.H7 is half the price of Mi5. H7 lacks Gyro (reqd for VR) ...otherwise its a good VFM buy actually and readily available.
AnonD-500788, 03 May 2016But you still get the mi5 on oppomart, honorbuy, everbuying, gearbest, spemall, etc, not only ... moreYes buddy, i'm aware of that. But it's a chinese version right? Also we have to get it shipped from foreign country...customs duty and getting phone in good condition is a trouble i believe.
AnonD-531925, 30 Apr 2016how does honor 7 price compare to mi 5 ?Honor 7 is a bit cheaper unless the importer is willing to sell you the Mi5 with original price.

[deleted post]Unless you just jumped from some other world, you must have heard about the flash sale all the mi5 fans are cribbing about.
Mi5 is currently available only via flash sale. It happens tomorrow @2PM
[deleted post]Actually you hardly find products on MI site. Its promotional and brand building exercise. Headphones, cables, covers all are "Out of Stock". I suggest Xiaomi use "In Stock" labels which would look relieving. :D
Xiaomi is making wonderful products to increase its market value and brand value. The products are goods and yield low profit to Xiaomi and hence it is not interested in sales of the products. If you go to Xiaomi India website, there are few old products available for sales and others are "Out of Stock" always.
Does anyone having app closing issues?
I don't know what is wrong with my phone but sports trackers usually closed when I'm training and I lost records of that session. Even instagram and 9gag dies while browsing.
I get no error messages It just kills apps for no reason. I have tried changing all settings about permissions and battery saving but result is same.
I use bluetooth heat rate monitors, wireless cameras (gopro, canon etc.), BT speakers, gamecontrollers thus have "always on" "wifi, BT and GPS". Yet this phone is a true Nazi when it comes battery saving and turn off everything whenever it can. for me the struggle with the interface is real.
