So, How is it? Did anyone manage to bend it?

You might have seen the bend test video by JerryRigEverything.
There is another bend test video by "BCD Technology" in youtube which shows Mi5 is hard to break by bending. Now, these two videos are showing totally different opinions.
A question to Mi5 users out there "Do you actually notice that this phone is really fragile as shown in the bend test video?"
AnonD-531410, 28 Apr 2016Is this phone compatible with US LTE bands?Unfortunately no. Look under "Network" tab and look for US GSM LTE bands 2,4,5,12,17. TMobile uses mostly 12 and AT&T is dominant on 17.
I am in US too and can only look at these phones with envy.
Does this phone have the standard three navigation buttons for Android phones? The pics only show one.

Anonymous, 22 Apr 2016I understand your point, but we are talking about $400 phone that is fragile like a fortune cookie !Get a case?
Dte, 25 Apr 2016It does I have one in front of my eyes u liar Thats quick charge 2.0 according to their website's specs.
Mi5 is the best phone with lowest price i ever had previous 2 years i had iphone 6 LG G3 sony Z3 and iphone 6s among them i like iphone 6s and mi5.Mi5 is nearly equalivent to iphone6s but half the price.I live in myanmar and it come from china with china ROM.But i got no problem.There is no heating issue i gurrantee it.Camera work like 6s which is very good.Display is good too QHD is good but too battery draining.I can use it for whole day without charging another time.Duraibility i got a temper glass and strong back cover i think i don't need to care.Guys this is $300 phone but it works like $700 iphone 6s.The only problem i had is facebook sometime stop responding cuz it is china ROM.When global ROM enter i believe it will be fixed.I recommend Mi5 cuz of it quality and price.
SG, 27 Apr 2016Hi, I received the phone on 11-Apr-2016 and I faced 2 major problems: 1. Mi Protect acti... morehave been using mi5 since april 8 and getting atleast 5hrs of screen time, for me that is lasting for around 2 days easily. may be you should have your phone replaced within 10 days of buying.
Hi After 18 days if usage this is the sumnary-
Excellent Form factor.
Very good finger print sensor.
Excellent sunlight legibility
No network issue.
This is a head Turner and beautiful handset.
Sub par loud speaker.
This does heat up but once you are used it's just ok.
Some apps crash and do not respond.
Camera is just OK.
But overall I recommend a buy.
