Once more I've to post for those who are saying that mi 5 is not a "value for money smartphone".
As I am also waiting for the most avaited smartphone since last year, I've read all the reviews from those who use this smartphone or hand-on it.
1st thing is that the camera is awesome. As for the low light condition, the reviews show that the quality of photos are gud, selfies taken in low light cnditions are way better than any other smartphone under this price range.
It deserve our money and for those who prefres sansung smartphone let me tell you this, the smartphone with most hanging problem i've seen is samsung.
As for mi 5, the camera quality is damn gud, touch is fab. Nd fingerprint sensor is faster than any samsung flagship.
I am going to purchase this smartphone. M Happy coz mi 5 is coming soon in India. :-)
After a looooooong waiting then decided back to Samsul (read: Samsung) for all the features and quality.
This second layer brand just need to improve much more for cost gap between galaxy s6 or note5 (second hand, but not counterfeit), when they are selling camera wise quality then what type should I compare? Off course galaxy S7 or iphone 6.at such price even galaxy A5 can beat it.
Just my 2 cents.
Ali, 13 Mar 2016why you are not opening your store in Pakistan or UAE? B'coz most of the top seller believe that india is the bigest market after china, for release in pakistan u have to wait atleast 1 year for mi5 or u can buy second hand piece after 6 month on eBay pakistan on premium price.
smee, 25 Mar 2016mi 5 official prices vary between usd357-usd413. which other phone gives you 4k screen+ sd8... moreThe other person who said that there is needed a 4k one was reffering to battery not screen.
Does it work with AT&T 4G LTE network? I checked the LTE bands and it doesn't seem to work with AT&T 4G LTE network. Please be advised.
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.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2016Most people are crazy with Mi5 because many of them are sold by the specs on paper, but if you... more
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.
AnonD-485821, 25 Mar 2016it's 2016, need more battery capacity 3k is not enough
need 4k for this pricemi 5 official prices vary between usd357-usd413.

it's 2016, need more battery capacity 3k is not enough
need 4k for this price
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:
