AnonD-508082, 27 Feb 2016Nowadays, every manufactures copy one another in one or another way. Or the word "copy" is not... moreYeah, usually companys share ideas because the owners of the company are friends no matter what phone they release they always earn money.
MI 5 is maybe much a like S7 but there specification is different and besides that would be the user's choice he would like to use a phone from mi or samsung the important thing is u can use it as way you want it to :)
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2016if this dual flash take pictures can get the highest score in the the Dxomark I won't complain... moreThe score is unknown yet. But yeah, I doubt it will be the best camera ut there. That would be S7. May I remind you that it also have dual flash and it cost twice as much. Lg g5 have dual camera but I don't see it competing with S7 in term of quality. Mi5 may not be the best of the best but it's comparable ti the phone that have twice it's price. If money is no problem for you then S7 is definitely be the best phone out there. Why bother with this "Cheapo" phone. Lol
The pro is better than this although it looks somewhat like samsung s6 which which is the home key and the side 3d bezel.
jsl, 27 Feb 2016mi.comThanks for the info. CONFIRMED. Screen protection is Gorilla Glass 4.
go to mi.com (China) --> use google translate if you have to --> Milet Phone 5 --> Design
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
AnonD-508433, 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).
bill, 27 Feb 2016Nope.OnePlus X the first phone with ceramic back.I see, thanks for your info.
But the ceramic back might be different though, Xiaomi says like its ceramic is not easy too make, and have the toughness/hardness twice that of sapphire. Looks so premium for me.
Dear GSM Æ ...
You have hand on mi5... But in your speciation still showing FM as to confirm ????
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2016He said the phone hang. How on earth you restart a hang phone when every button do not work. ... moreEven my old 512mb RAM android phone can be restarted even if the phone hangs a lot in low memory situations.
AnonD-508433, 27 Feb 2016its copy from samsung galaxy s6Samsung copied xiaomi's hardware style
AnonD-508379, 27 Feb 2016i just watched the keynote of mi5 and theres no mentioning on cornic gorilla glassGuarrilla glass or any other glass protection not mentioned in MWC or any other site.
jsl, 27 Feb 2016Why should you open up the phone and take out the battery when every normal android phone feat... moreRemovable batteries can be easily replaced if faulty. Some people (like me) carry batteries instead of power banks, so the battery can be instantly replaced without charging. (several batteries may be charged at once, saving time)
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2016I watched Hugo presentation during live, and watched it again on youtube. Nothing is mentioned... moreyes i also watched now and only thing they mentioned again and again is 3D glass. didnt mention anything about protection or hot tough it is.
