I have being using the mi5 for 2 weeks. bought the 3 GB 32 g model.
+ V well build, v slim, v light phone. Camera daylight excellent, night dim light manageable.battery as usual quite gd.v v fast phone.never lag
- heating issue only after long time usage to be honest most phone do heat up.
Do not totally believe those negative comments as sometimes it is due to the country u in where coverage may not be that good. Network issue ...not the phone. Don't ask for the sky when u are paying such a good price for this product. U can hv the best specs for the pHone but end of the day, are you willing to pay for it. So, let 's all be fair and reasonable.
Hi everyone. Was going through many user comments. I have purchased mi5 white 32gb on 14 Oct. Honest opinion.
Light weight but sturdy.
Camera is excellent in day light. Low light ok.
Battery 4g throughout the day sync mail, social networking sites goes 1 day. Need to charge by late evening.
Interface is lag free.
Sound on earphones is not better compared to my oneplus one. Still very clear but not best.
Good themes and can find better on theme store.
Sunlight visibility excellent. Very bright phone and it's autobrightness is rapidly quick.
Cost. Since I traded my OPO and bought during festive celebrations on flipkart got it for 13K.
Value for money.
Coming from 5.5 inch screen find keyboard cramped.
The status bar gives notification on scrolling screen down but can't see the content unless u tap on it.
Purchased back case as phones back is glass. U drop it u pay for it.
Someone Please post the pros and corns after the latest update from Mi, I am willing to buy this please suggest me.
Hello wonderful people,
I need info on following points. Kindly let me know.
Does it supports 4G VoLTE?
Any issue with NFC?
Any issue with IR?
Does it have FM? As per spex its not there but I read someone's comment mentioning about FM so current owner of MI5 please confirm?
How is the front and main camera picture quality?
How much memory is available to use for end user?
Earlier I had a xiomi phone, it also has heating problem but that only occured after half an hour excessive use, like gaming or video call. Does this phone has similar issue or get heat up even earlier.
I have had a lot of problems with this device. I don't recommend it at all.
Mi5 waste of the money, Heating issue in that, battery temperature always around 40-45 Degree. sound is also bad like radio with Mi earphones.
I contacted customer care and they suggested that the phone would be repaired. Why should a brand new phone be repaired. It must be replaced if it is found faulty but Mi customer care person insisted that wouldn't happen and just stopped replying.
This is frustrating. A person doesn't buy a new phone to find it is faulty and then see it getting repaired within 15 days of putting in the sim. this very bad phone.
Sandy, 21 Oct 2016Hi Guys, I updated from MIUI 8 Stable 220.127.116.11 TO 18.104.22.168 and my earpiece volume during the... morei have the problem with music and video songs not with call,whats about your music and video sound??????
Aj , 23 Oct 2016quiet listen carefully go only one plus 3Oh, and also don't forget the base mi5 is about half the price of the 3.;oneplus phones are getting goddamn expensive because like many small companies, they start with competitive prices to get their name known and once they do it, their next model has an iphone/galaxy S price tag :( ... so ya, I'd say if you have the money to buy a oneplus 3, buy two mi5 instead; mostly the same specs, looks a lot better,.. aand, you got two of it :P
Aj , 23 Oct 2016quiet listen carefully go only one plus 3Yepp, they're great too, I only have two complaint for oneplus though: battery life should be better and they should make another phone like the X; I prefer a phone that is under 70 mm wide and many people having active or sporty lifestyles find it hard to handle 5.5"+ phablets or fitting them in a pocket while they work.
