Its a china made phone...and china has banned google and google apps, so you'll have to download and install them google apps separately. (doh)

Does meizu have alright call quality and after sales service.
I see, I still haven't answered your question dude, equally confused & indecisive.
Your meizu review would be greatly appreciated :)
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.
patbabu, 03 Apr 2016HELLO, Hugo Bara, please answer to this question , why your company rises approximately 4k on ... moreAnswer is probably just marketing strategy.

Prime ver: Max 2.15 GHz Snapdragon 820, 624MHz Adreno 530 GPU, dual channel 1866MHz 3GB LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB UFS stogare.
Does it have play store...? As it is running Android marshmallow! I've seen some people commenting it's not having play store..?
Does it has OTG functionon this phone.? Nothing mentioned on the specification Spec only mentioned USB Type C 3.1
HELLO, Hugo Bara, please answer to this question , why your company rises approximately 4k on prime model of mi 5 ?
Glen, 03 Apr 2016Xiaomi is anyways famous without any superstars for their promotion worldwide and their advert... moremy friend. i dont deny that its one of the best brand. but why atleast no hybrid slot ??
everyone loves porrn but this is not about it. this is flagship device and specially for camera.
u already know how much memory 1hour 1080p video recording occupies ???
Samba29, 03 Apr 2016we know samsung do lot of advertising worldwide and hire celebrities to launch thier products.... moreXiaomi is anyways famous without any superstars for their promotion worldwide and their advertisement on Facebook and twitter and that helps keeping the price low...... so decide if you want an expensive advertised brand with a superstar or a cheaper Phone which is less advertised without a superstar
And yes the Redmi note 3 was a direct competition to Le Eco 1s which ate up all the phones within the 10k price bracket so that move made sense....
No card slot agreed bt has a OTG which is still ok as i dont save a lot of Porn on my fone so 32 GB or 25GB is sufficient for me and it has IR blaster which even the S7 doesnt have and this feature could be quite usefull.
Maybe if the One plus and Le Eco 2 is lauched in the same price bracket you may get to see the higher versions coming in or the price getting a lil cheaper.
blazejeez, 03 Apr 2016Can i install google app etc ?or i must instal international rom?Yu need to get the Global Rom
1990d, 03 Apr 2016you wont get any google apps man. like the play store n stuff. Can i install google app etc ?or i must instal international rom?
Glenn, 03 Apr 2016Guys grow up!!!! First of all Mi5 32GB is by no means an Expensive device as there are other m... morewe know samsung do lot of advertising worldwide and hire celebrities to launch thier products. the reason why thier phone is expensive.
i think reasonable price for Mi5 should be 21k max for lower variant.
i think xiaomi dont have enough profit margin over redmi 3 or redmi note 3 in india by selling it in such a cheap price. may be this is the reason why they want to recover that loss by keeping mi 5 price more than its reasonable price in india
if u think device with no card slot deserve 25k then go and buy.
