I have used it for 8 months now. Not a good phone compared to others. Has some very good features but the overall privacy issues are very bad. I won't get Xiomi phones in future. Hope Xiomi fixes these issues. I think they are very good but need to give what the customers want and protect their information. Please realise I dont want to share everything on my phone with Xiomi!!
I have mi5 for 6months now. Battery life is really good, but from the very first moment it keeps starting and killing apps spontaneously while the phone is not in use. I have tried every possible option and setting but couldn't find the solution. It is very frustrating. Once the screen got a yellow stint on one side (did not drop it or anything) I had it repaired on warranty, but it took more than 3 weeks and ever since the the right on screen button does not work. The customer support is really sloppy (at least in Hungary) so I did not return with the button problem to lack the phone for another three weeks. Finally I decided to change brand. Good hardware, not expensive, fast phone with long battery life but sloppy quality and obscurous and annoying software glitches.

I bought the Xiaomi Mi 5 and it seemed great. Within 6 months it packed up completely. I sent it back four months ago and I now believe thata I'm wasting my time expecting them to honour the guarantee. How can I get it enforcedin China?
