Anulibra , 18 Apr 2016Here is my summary of Mi5 after one week of intense use as my only phone Pros: Excellent di... moreYou got the 2.0 Quickcharge Charger right? If you had got the 3.0 charger then charging would have been quicker, I guess nearly 48% quicker.
[deleted post]They are also giving the 2.0 Quickcharge charger with the phone, Chinese are getting the 3.0 charger I think. In short the Indian market is becoming a dumping stock of unsold Xiaomi products.
Remember, that the white version was launched first in China and after a month it's being sold in India while the phones in demand in China are not even making here. Shows how important the Indian market is, also it seems only limited stock, maybe even less than 100, in every flash sale to create an artificial hype of the 32gb version. Once it's demand subsides (which already has) they might launch the 64 gb version or might launch it after 6-9 months. It's clear India is not a target market for them.
Ooh god. I am really confused by looking reviews... I was eager to buy mi5, but now I am confused... Don't know what to do...
Mshesh, 18 Apr 2016Go for A5(2016). I have experience of using Samsung mobiles 2 years back. 1 year the mobile will be working without any problem but then after 1 year the mobile will start hanging and will face issues.

Here is my summary of Mi5 after one week of intense use as my only phone
Excellent sunlight legibility
Simply beautiful phone (You have to hold this to feel).
Works super fast thanks to QC 820SD.
Immediate connectivity after flight mode.
(I had issues with iPhone 5s earlier until I restart sometimes)
Right size for reading and browsing.
Excellent ergonomics, very light and fits easily in pocket.
Fast and responsive GPS.
Some will like Easy to use MIUI interface.
Fast charging is not really fast. You need 90-100 mins from 0 to 100.
Battery is average. Will run out after 6pm heavy use but anyways you need PB or charger for all phones now.
Very slippery back, you have to use a case which does not do any justice to this beautiful device.
Heating draws your attention and drains battery fast bit not a deal breaker.
Android MM is simply not to be seen as MIUI is so prominent.
Teething problems remain for some app crash. In my case just one game Can knock down.
But the biggest issue is camera. Performance is like 13MP and not 16. Detailing gets grainy beyond 10 Mtrs.auto focus is slow. Overall well above average but not like flagship.
My recommendation you will love the ergonomics and will not regret even at 25K.
akshat812, 14 Apr 2016quad core 820 soc is much much faster than octa on mi4. there is no comparison at all.Mi4 also have quad core processor only SD 801 clocked at 2.5ghs
Ayan, 17 Apr 2016How is the audio output through headphones?Hi
It's above average. Bass levels are spread out and over a mid volume good clarity.
I'm facing issues with battery life and heat. With all wireless connections turned off, it looses a great deal of charge in a very short span and gets uncomfortably hot. I will definitely be contacting customer service soon.
akshat812, 17 Apr 2016i have been using it since a week and noticed no software problem. i think you should take you... moreTook it to service centre after 1 day of use. They said it should be flashed. But not much improvement.
By as another user said, it might be one off issue and not a general issue.
Mshesh, 17 Apr 2016I bought mi5 from their official site in India. They are not providing money back. They only s... morethis may be one off issue. i have not experienced any of the problems mentioned here.
Mshesh, 17 Apr 2016If you have used mi5, you will not say this. It's very bad except for its great reviews online... morei have been using it since a week and noticed no software problem. i think you should take your mi5 to customer care if you bought it from official sale and if it is from china then your loss.
Will the company resolve these problems of low battery life, heating and software problems in future... Bcz except this the phone is good... Excellent outlook...
