To be honest, I've been quite disappointing after looking at the sample shots of Mi5. While people rave the quality, I see those photos look hazy, lack of sharpness even when compared to older flagships like G4 & S6. Look at these sample shots Mi5 vs S6. Even S6's camera wins hands down to details, sharpness & colors.
Did anyone buyed pro version ?? How is it ?? I have seen in some videos in back glass and ceramic our fringer print marks can be seen.... Is it so worst??

1080 p display it really hurts in the age of getting 4k display 1080p not... moreNot all (in reality, most) people don't think like you do. Most people don't need 4k display in a "tiny" display (5-6"). Please do a research. We don't see the display with magnifier glass or microscope, do we?
As you know, Mi 5 comes with 3 variants:
Standard: 32GB/3GB RAM
Prime: 64GB/4GB RAM
Pro: 128GB/4GB RAM
What are you complaining about the RAM?
In any case, If you need more storage, go for the 64GB or 128GB variant.
Many users can live with 32GB storage. If I were you, I choose the 128GB variant without card slot because the internal flash storage in Mi 5 supports UFS 2.0 (LTE Cat 12, with download speed of 600 Mbps), so it makes the data transfer faster than if you use a SD card, even the most expensive one.
Put in your mind, you are always be able to use pendrive/flash disk, or whatever external storage as it supports USB OTG if you need more capacity.
If it still doesn't satisfy your needs, simply buy other phone you like, there are several flagships out there with doubled price.... and not necessarily any better than Mi 5, but the choice is yours. I prefer Mi 5. It's my personal opinion coz it's my dream phone.
Camera comparison Mi5 vs Samsung S6 Edge+ vs Iphone 6S Plus
Mi5 camera is overrated. Mi5 front camera selfie looks inferior, resulting in very dark shots which is almost unusable.
Even S6 camera is still a lot more superior than Mi5.
Very disappointed with the result.

Is there any phone can do that actually?
I mean, how can you make a call and receive another call with other SIM at the same time with the same mic and speaker? I don't get it, it seems no sense. Please explain.

So for me on 5.15" device using 2k would be a waste let alone 4k. using higher resolution kill performance and battery life so for me 1080p is a pro. not a con.
Digidoong, 09 Mar 2016I have it and it rocks! Xiaomi for life!dude, review it a bit. especially the camera. is it any good compared to other flagship? and the screen brightness?
Mi 5 has great performance. According to gfx benchmark it also beats iPhone 6s plus in performance test, which is very difficult. It is the first android phone to do so. Because it's very difficult to beat iphone in performance test. So I m waiting for mi 5.
