i'm using mi5 for nearly 2 months, very nice phone, of course no phone is perfect even the hefty flagships, but this phone with its price gives you things no other phone can, premium quality, very beautiful design, very light (129g), miui is another point for this phone, i have never encountered heat problem, except when its plugged to the charger and im playing a heavy game, it gets war but never hot,
if you have limited budget, you can't find anything else near this phone. (to be honest even as a businessman i have no limit in my budget but i choose this phone, and Im happy for my decision)
This is VERY BAD phone as the screen is so delicate that it will break on the first fall on the soft ground as well.

Miui is the best customizable interface out there.
Either use a vanilla android nexus or use a windows phone.
The design is beautiful, I have to say I appreciate the job. But the system operation is very bad. You will never find a way to connect it to your Pc, and that's disappointed me alot.
I don't feel are using this flagship and I would never gonna buy an other one from this company.
I felt my privacy is not safe with them.
It's an Android, of course. But worse than IOS.

Anonymous, 14 Jan 2015no card slot, non-removable battery...failed android device.Xiaomi dont make cardslot for their high end phone coz it only makes the performance slower. Specially when the memory card is low quality...just like a computer with a usb storage device - its fast to access your harddrive than accessessing the portable usb device.........and for the non-removable battery, all phones (not all but majority) that exceed 3000mAh have non removable battery...i dunno why

Unless you are willing to wait till those price drop and you will think it is more reasonable to buy the phone. It all depends on your budget overall.
I have been a Mi5 user for over a month now.
I will list my pros and cons below, and would like your feedback on what would be a reasonable replacement later this year.
Most of all, I love the relatively small footprint. I think phones 5.5" and upwards offer a lot, but become too cumbersome to carry around. Any smaller would impact the multimedia experience.
Screen brightness and resolution are excellent.
Battery is excellent considering the size of the phone. The quick charging comes in handy. In fact I manage to bring it from 20%-98% while showering and having breakfast in the morning.
The phone was extremely cheap given its specs. This means I will afford an upgrade already this year.
It is VERY slippery. I solved this using a thin Nilkin case. Thanks to the small phone, it is still small even with a case.
I miss my old phones (Huawei Mate S) deep blacks and punchy colors due to its AMOLED screen.
Headphone audio output is sometimes not loud enough when I'm on my noisy commute.
My replacement options below, and the reasons I have not gone with any of them (yet):
Galaxy S7 (edge and normal) looks great and gets great reviews. However, it is bigger than my Mi5 and around twice as expensive.
OnePlus 3T would probably be my phone if I didn't have my Mi5. It would be an upgrade in performance, screen and battery life. But this would be at the expense of higher price and larger footprint.
Huawei Mate 9 Pro looks great but would be even bigger and more expensive.
Google Pixel (and XL) also look good but for me, the price tules them out.
ZTE Axon 7 looks really interesting and comes fairly cheap.
The Galaxy S8 will likely be awesome, but I am sure it will be over budget for me.
Which other ones should I consider?
