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 126.96.36.199 TO 188.8.131.52 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.
Anonymous, 20 Oct 2016MI 5 or honor 8?No competition here, the mi5 is a true flagship; 4K video, OIS, H.265 (not even the Galaxy S7 and iphone 7 has this yet), more powerful while the honor 8 is a step below lacking these, more like a premium midranger... plus IMO the mi5 looks better than most phones today.
I updated from MIUI 8 Stable 184.108.40.206 TO 220.127.116.11 and my earpiece volume during the call has gone really LOW. I have keep it to full to hear the voice.
Anyone have this issue, and please provide solution if possible.
