This shit it so overpriced and pumped I can't believe it! They sell it on Gearbest for around 2855 RMB and not 1999RMB as Xiaomi advertises it should cost. Not to mention I would have to pay 20% tax + 7% extra custom costs to order it to Europe.
All the english reviews claiming low priced device are a full of shit.
Btw, what about the camera sensor size? The photos with less light look horrible.
And what about the overheating issues when in camera mode? Can anybody comment?
Xiaomi is the top selling brand in china. One of the best smartphone market China will not buy a cheep brand .mi is a top brand not by price but by performance
Woah! #TheNextGalaxy is here!
P.S. We're still waiting for Mi 5 edge

Mi 5 is for us poor people but wanted a phone with great specs. Though if you install Cyanogen Mod instead of Miui, it will flies like a jet phone.

Xiaomi Mi5 3/32GB vs Huawei Mate 8 3/32GB
Huawei spanks Xiaomi Mi5. Benchmark doesn't reflect realworld performance.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2016ximomi phones not giving clear sar values.SAR value is under the battery.
shekar rao, 04 Apr 2016why did not lanch dual sim phone ?mi 5 is dual sim.
blazejeez, 03 Apr 2016Can i install google app etc ?or i must instal international rom?I have prime version bought from Hong Kong. It came in Chinese from the box and supports English (at least 60% English still a lot of chinese applications in it). It had no google play or any other google services in it but I manually downloaded them from the stock web browser and installed without any problem. Now I have everything I use in my daily life in the phone.
Most of the Chinese applications looked like bloatware and the phone let me delete them. I really liked the interface of the phone. Tools have smooth designs such as weather, clock,alarm, compass, calculator etc. I have used Samsungs and HTC before and I had doubts about a Chinese UI design. (All I thought was, I can always download an alternative version if I dont like an application) Now I am happy.
