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

This is no joke, I am at Abu Dhabi and there is a lot of sun light here, much more than I would have preferred. During lunch time, under direct sun reading the screen was not a problem for me.

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2016Is there a 16 gb model? No 16GB variants available for this model since it 'doesn't' have a card slot. I'm ordering one from China due to the special kind of features it has. Go for it guys.

Mi put lot of efforts to design and performance and finally comes with beautifully crafted with all round package. In Heart Snapdragon 820 processor in terms of speed and performance makes more sound. It does well without heat issues like Snapdragon 810.
Mi Innovated 16 backlit LED sunlight display gives more visible on direct sunlight and more brightness compared with predecessor mi 4. Full HD display is not disappointing and proves best smart phone of the year. Also reading mode better control on the display gives comfortable to read perfectly suited for day to day phone.
Mi camera is better than Predecessor but not the best. Pictures are more vivid and very well balance with day light and amazingly fast focus. Mi has to develop more camera filters like sony
Sound quality is very good but disappointing single speaker. Loudness is better than HTC m9 plus. Also Mi Ear phone perfectly coupled with best quality in vocals and treble with good amount of bass and new setting Mi pro headset gives you the best Hifi Quality. There is no dedicated audio chip as Mi note Pro.
Finger print sensor one the fastest in this category. Battery is long lasting for one day for heavy use.
Verdict: Mi 5 one the best smartphone in terms of price and performance camera quality and moreĀ . It looks very elegant and stand out of the crowd. Being Mi fan I definitely appreciate the effort behind this flagship.
