Registered for the Xiaomi Mi5 flash sale in India today. Can you believe it? The sale closed in 7 seconds. Yes, that is what it took before 'out of stock' flashed on my screen. Either Xiaomi is very poorly stocked OR crazy buyers exist who run scripts automating order placement in few seconds in an online sale OR Xiaomi is just taking customers for a ride. I waited five days for this sale keeping Oneplus 2 on the standby when I badly needed a new phone when my Lumia 920 finally went dead after serving me for 3.5 years. And guess what, as soon as Xiaomi went out of stock, I purchased a OP2 on Amazon. Xiaomi just lost a customer.

This is no joke, I am at Abu Dhabi and there is a lot of sun light here, much more than I would have preferred. During lunch time, under direct sun reading the screen was not a problem for me.

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2016Is there a 16 gb model? No 16GB variants available for this model since it 'doesn't' have a card slot. I'm ordering one from China due to the special kind of features it has. Go for it guys.
