swadesh, 14 Apr 2016How's the battery life... Is there any heating issue Go see Xiaomi's forum. Mi5's phones are heating to 45-47C when it's charging & when you use the camera.
One thing I notice about Xiaomi is how their product is marketed based on hype, since that's the only thing they can do to "advertise" their products. Some gullible users will say Xiaomi's phone the best due to weekly updates, without even realizing that those updates are needed because they keep trying to fix bugs (and breaks others). A fully stable phone DO NOT need weekly updates continously. Xiaomi's phones are always released with half-bake software, as pointed out by almost all reviewers.
The irony is that these weekly updates are often misunderstood as a sign of a great phone.
AnonD-525866, 13 Apr 2016Registered for the Xiaomi Mi5 flash sale in India today. Can you believe it? The sale closed i... moreThey absolutely do pull wool on customers eyes, this is an arrangement between the online seller and the manufacturer to lure poor customet, to create a hype, and to charge exhorbitant prices which otherwise are not anywhere near sane ones. A genuine seller never hides himself. All such chinese phones, which are poor in quality hardware wise, have gone this conspicuosly cheaters way to sell thier stuff in underhand way. You dont get to see what you are buying. Why dont they come in to open a shop like a geuine brand in your country, is anybody,s guess.
Spend wisely guys, gals, too!

Xiaomi is cheating customers, it's playing with customers through flash sale just to create demand for this phone

swadesh, 14 Apr 2016So many negative reviews about mi5, I will go for one plus 2...if you click pics, play games, want fast processor, then mi5 is the best, go for one plus2 only if you want extra storage space. with mi5, you get 5gb xiaomi cloud storage too, so the total storage comes up to 31gb usable

Guys, if you wonder that why the battery life of Mi5 is not better than S7 under heavy game usage, that is because S7 have sort of power/temp management system inside to limit the processor to around 1ghz. That's why when you use S7 to play those high demanding games like NBA2K16, you will experience frame rate drops to 20fps in few minutes. This won't happen to Mi5.
