Hey guys , i just recently purchased a Xiaomi Mi5 from china and bought it to India . I have managed to get apps like facebook and a few other working . However i need to get Snapchat working on it as well . But when i try to open the app it says it needs google play service which i guess are banned in india . So is there anyway i can get this app working on my phone ? Or another way to get google play services working on the phone . I have google play on my phone but it does not accept any of my gmail ids . So i hence i cannot get google play services started . Any help would be appreciated. My email address is email@example.com . If any of you could email me a solution. It would be helpfull. Thanks .
Rohit12, 30 Mar 2016I tried it today and compared to my 2 year old note 4 in speed and note 4 is much faster. Xiao... moreSeriously man. Are you kidding? Samsung mobile becomes the slowest one after usage of 1 year. I had experience with Note 1 and Note 3. As far as optimization is concerned, Samsung is the worst who force a hell lot of junk useless apps to their premium phone users.
Ark10, 29 Mar 2016does it has corning gorilla glass..?

On paper, the hardware specs sounds amazing, and the price is cheap but people forget that the software optimization also takes a big part how a mobile phone works. Of course you still have a phone with Snapdragon 820 inside, but whether the performance is up to par to the big boys is another matter. In the end, many people buy a phone stuffed with SD820 that works like SD808/10 (and priced like SD808/810) because of poor software opt. , but people will still buy it under the perception that they have bought the fastest hardware on paper......and still feel happy about it.
Its hard to believe that people claims to use it Even it will launch in India today after 2pm. Well well well, I've seen videos on youtube where I saw the comparision of xiaomi's mi 5 and samsung galaxy s7. No doubt that mi 5 was bit slow while comparing with s7. But they were comparing mi 5's 64gb + 3gb version with s7's 64gb + 4gb version. Thats is the reason Mi5 was tad slow. But when it comes to the camera comparision, you can't tell that which was better, as for the review, it was a tie b/w camera. Best of luck Indians, Hope xiaomi mi 5 screw all the hates today after launch.

Xiao... moreWell! that's a shocker, considering your Samsung Galaxy note 4 comes with a 32-bit soc three generations back as compared to the latest 64-bit snapdragon has to offer, the Huawei's nexus 6P has alot going for it no doubt but to compare it with the Xiaomi Mi5 is absurd geek wise.
I tried it today and compared to my 2 year old note 4 in speed and note 4 is much faster. Xiaomi hasnot done any optimization at all due to which phone lags
Nexus 6P is almost 7-8 times faster than it.
Internet browsing is most lagging in Mi 5. Xiaomi need to focus on software.
Lipu, 30 Mar 2016Sorry bro itz not 4mp.. itz 4 ultra megapixel.It's half the price of Samsung A7
How is the touch response, is it like a feather touch screen like all Samsung smartphones or should u Tap on the screen? Users please reply
This phone have amazing features but don't have Radio option, that is very bad report.
Price is High.... The front cam is low when compared with the other model(4MP for Mi5, others has 5Mp with lesser price).... and finally.... the battery backup is very low when this model comes with the current specifications
