Yes, it's a bad phone, battery life is very low and front cam is not good only 4 mp, worst phone in this price, no value for money, don't buy this, waste of money.. Go for Samsung s6 or s7 edge
My friend bought this phone from eBay, the worst phone very low processing battery life is not good , battery drains up very fast even for normal use, it heats up while charging and in call, it heats up like iron box during gaming, only outlook is good, don't buy this phone...
My old phone is Mi 4 , bt i like it Mi 5 , do u have any replsment option
My Galaxy S6 got stolen and I'm looking for a replacement. Could you recommend me a Xiaomi phone with similar (or better) specifications than the S6, but cheaper.
Mi5 is not the fastest phone in the market. Its even slower than the oneplus 2 ... Also memory management is not good. I don't understand why miui 7 plus the snapdragon 820 can perform so bad
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.

And guess what, as soon as Xiaomi went out of stock, I purchased a OP2 on Amazon. Xiaomi just lost a customer.

SOT browsing, calls, photos : 4 hours
SOT gaming : 2.5 hours
Good luck on that.
The one thing that's important to every mobile user is call quality, something that's been completely overlooked.
anyone know what they downgraded the processor? i thought mi 4i had already got octa core now this new release go back to quad-core??
These MI phones are OK but service when they got repaired means its worst service which i had never experienced,Worst service from MI. I never buy MI phone again........

For my comment to EhhThing, please read back the previous comments why I said so. I seldom attack people in the comment section.
