After 1 year of usage i am writing this review. First of all camera...it's really bad..the images are grainy and not sharp and in low light or at night the situation is more worse...on zooming the images become like they are water coloured... front camera is ok not great...video quality in low light is really bad...second, after updating it to miui 8. It has stopped replying whatsapp messages from notification bar like it used to be before...during summer sthe phone gets heated like hot iron...when ever you charge the phone it displays that the temperature is above 45°c...the only thing which i like in this phone is that its light weight and screen to body ratio is good...so lastly, if you are looking for a phone with decent camera quality and sharp pictures i would not recommend to buy mi5.
After updating 220.127.116.11 v sth wrong with playstore" waiting for wifi" plz fix the issue
After Nougat update front camera images are blurry. They were fantastic before the update. Any solutions?
I got MI5 for a couple of months......original MIUI had some chinese malware (had pop ups commercials and stuff), so i unlocked it (officialy) and first run it on CM13 - dont do that - batery life was shorter, camera didnt work, or worked with lags, GPS didnt work at all, couple times it froze.....so i switched to EU ROM...ok this is a bit better - gps works, camera works, but.....one day figer sensor stopped working and doesn work till today.....generally phone has problems if u wear it in a pocked while lets say doing some sport - guess moisture comes into the phone and then it starts to become laggy/unresponsible.....
I would not recomend to buy that phone, unless u like changing ROMs every day for trial and error - which one will work best, or lets say on which rom most of the features will work - all of them wont i guess.....its not made to work in EU i guess - GPS problems seem to be related to this.....
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2017But my phones battery backup is not goodI dont know, but for me I am constantly getting 4-5hrs SOT for 22-24hrs run time with nfc off, capacitve buttons off, gps set to battery saving, brightness at auto mode. I have only few apps and just using the phone for Facebook and web browsing + watsapp messaging.
Hello everyone! The Xiaomi mi5 is my 3rd phone. I got 3gb 64gb version from china for 1800 yuan=280$ and I've got to say that for the price its unbeatable.As far as updates are concerned I'm satisfied coz at least they are ota updates and Xiaomi seems fast in sending them. Currently running android 7.0 nougat with miui 8.2. Scored 125800 points on antutu. Camera is awesome in daylight as well as low light. OIS and Xiaomi's own hht modes helps a lot. In the video department 4k is awesome even in low light. Slow motion is acceptable in daylight but not in low light. I think there should be a 60fps mode in 1080p as the Snapdragon 820 supports it. Looks and design is very nice with some nice texture on the back specially in the gold version. Durability wise i think its good coz it has fallen 3 4 times from normal height and no scratches whatsoever but watching some tests on YouTube clearly shows that a good case in necessary. Overall for 280$ no phone is as good as this in the Android market according to me.I hope this helps some people who are in doubt about this phone. Thanks.
After update to 18.104.22.168 play store always wifi waiting and *#*#4636#*#* phone information not working
aftr updating to android n ,i m not able to make video cal ...any1 face this problem...what should i do ???!
k, 29 Mar 2017Note 4For 0 reasons provided you choose the note 4. I would never choose a note 4 over the mi5 because the mi5 is a much superior piece of technology. If you get a note 4 now you will want an upgrade in 6 months minimum because its aging and not even that much better than the note3

AnonD-650428, 27 Mar 2017Aututu score I will let you know later as My wife is using the phone and I am in office right ... moreNo. Mine maximum is 43°c and i used it while charging and gaming high res like vainglory and gearclub
I am constantly changing phones but this one may stay with me for a while!
The feel of it is amazing and everything just works well.
Mine has the English International ROM and I have added the Google Now launcher from the Play Store, easy.
I would say go for it if you asked me :)
Audio jack problem on mi5 i have compared mi5 with redmi note3.redmi note3 produces much better sound than mi5
