UI is too chinese. If was a bit like nexua or like oxygen os like oneplus would've been better. No app drawer makes it worse. Same with huawei phones.

Then you must read the review from GSMArena, they review the phone in depth. All the key aspects are excellent (positive). They have it on hands. I trust this review than (almost) all other haters/trollers out there. I believe Mi 5 is one of the best flagship smartphones in 2016, and if the pricing counted, simply is the BEST.
Take a look:
PS. It's not imagination from GSMArena, what do you think?
Most people are crazy with Mi5 because many of them are sold by the specs on paper, but if you look at the camera samples, the OIS, the night shots, the frame drops in video recording, the noise level esp in low-light, among many other things, like the old camera API being used by the camera apps (from android 4.1), the lack of manual control, etc....then you know why it's cheap.
I have been waiting for Mi5 for 6 months, also sold by the paper specs, but then after seeing all these problems, the cheap price is becoming less and less atractive.

I am very confused right now. I have read the specs, and both phones are above average, with high-end specs and everything, and both have good looks.. So, which is better? Xiaomi Mi5 or Meizu MX5? Your opinion is GREATLY appreciated..
cvyas, 21 Mar 2016which phone I buy lenovo vibe x3 or mi 5?? confused :-( Go for honor 7
Well done Xiaomi, it's the best phone in 2016.. Problem is I couldn"t have it in my country yet. So sad.
epicasino, 21 Mar 2016well..they were looking like iPhones, and now this one looks like a Galaxy S7. Why can't they ... moreIf you are really interested to know, chcek how mi note/mi note pro looked. Then take a look at gs6 and gs7 and consider their release dates. You will know who is innovative and who is not!!
Ashok, 23 Mar 2016I purchased 64GB version 3days back $535 price
pros:1 good display,
2:light weight, ... moreXiaomi sells the phone for $357 if you paid $200 more you paid to resellers, it does not make the phone more expensive than its value.
Fact: Xiaomi's supply chain to different markets is terrible.
I think information page should be updated as the phone is currently being sold.
also versions should be better clarified:
Standard version: 1333MHz 3gb RAM, 32 GB ROM UFS 2.0 Plastic back - white, gold, black options - Dual-core 1.8 GHz Kryo & dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo - Adreno 530@510MHz
Prime version: 1866MHz 3gb RAM, 64 GB ROM UFS 2.0 Plastic back - white, gold, black options - Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo & dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo - Adreno 530@624MHz
Pro version: 1866MHz 4gb RAM, 128 GB ROM UFS 2.0 Ceramic back - only black option - Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo & dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo - Adreno 530@624MHz
