If only they'd change the chinese UI and use a bit natural UI like one plus did, this phone would've been great. But the software part is still too much "Chinese".
If size would hav been 5.5 ..it would have been great and battery non removable but many other might hav der opnion abt it...seen frm youtube camera is not great in night scenario.. But its not dslr its just mobile
osama madred, 27 Feb 2016its copy from samsung galaxy s6Nowadays, every manufactures copy one another in one or another way. Or the word "copy" is not best to describe. Do you think apple or samsung never copy the design/hardware/OS from others? They did and always do. However, each OEM must have at least their own characteristics or something new to offer. Many people (or troller/hater?) say Mi 5 copy samsung Note 5 curved back design which in fact the other way round. Mi 5 desgn mostly is an upgrade from Mi 4 and Mi Note series (that Samsung might got the idea of curved back design from).
