HelloFromMars, 30 Oct 2016Hey. If you guys don't mind me asking, what's the downside of this Mi5? Other than the MIUI, t... morei am using mi5 since june 2016. when you hold first time mi5 youll feel you are holding a 40k smartphone. Design is much better than samsung and its not copied at all. Ui is not ios. ppl compare it with ios becuase its flat UI but you can do much more than ios in MIUI. You dont need 4k display. i can easily say it is the best display panal used by mi. even i have compared it with iphone 6s side by side and believe me colour saturation, brightness is better than iphone. so dont worry about display its one of the best even its not 4k or 2k. now come to heating part as everyone say its heat so let me tell you that ever smartphone heats while gaming or any heavy work buts its always under 45 degree so its normal, just that during charging using fast charging it heats beacuase of fast charging apart from that in normal usage temprature is well below 40 degree. I have played lots of heavy games and no problem at all even its not higher clocked. speaker sound is average not too loud not too low. if you listen lots of music like me than ill say its not good through wired headphones but youll be surprised to know that through wirless mode sound quality is awsome as i am using v moda wireless headphones with it. Build quality is top notch according to the price . battery backup depends on your usage as i am using dual sim with 4g sim and 4g data on all the time so i need to charge the device again in a day but its not a problem as it supports fast charging so charge it for half an hour and you are good to go for full day.
previously i have used samsung galaxy s2, moto x2014, htc one e8 and now mi 5 so ill say again for the price you are paying for this its really good smartphone. Only cons i find on this device its only 32 gb and no card slot as i am heavy user so i have installed lots of games and music so sometimes i feel if it supported card slot than it would be great but still i am happy with my purchase.
MIUI is very similar to iOS in terms of looks. Mi5 should be faster, take better pictures and last longer.
Only thing to worry about is it that it bends
Hey. If you guys don't mind me asking, what's the downside of this Mi5? Other than the MIUI, the design, screen display. Like i want to know, is it worth it? Like is it going to lag after at least 6 months after? And should i change it from iPhone 5s to this mi5?
Been hearing people complaining about it copying samsung, UI copying iOS, screen is not 4K. Not really need all of that negativity since there's no problem it copying samsung and apple, and the non 4K or amoled screen - doesn't seem to much if a problem for me as long as it is in HD or FHD.
So what's the downside on this mi5 actually?

It's not a bad phone, but it's way too big for me. Mi5 is perfect, size wise. I have it for a week now, and so far no major problems (unlocking the bootloader was a pain because of them hosting their servers on a toaster and it timing out). Everything runs smoothly, the camera is good, the battery is good. MIUI8 also doesn't seem to cause issues with missed notifications or randomly unloading apps, unlike what I had with MIUI7 on my Redmi Note 2.
And unlike the Mi5s, the sound output on Mi5 is clean and it has OIS. The kernel sources are released and there is an official build of TWRP. Plus, because the Mi5s is out, the prices of the Mi5 are falling, I got the 64GB version for like 275Â€ + 20Â€ shipping. Probably possible to get it even cheaper now, haven't checked.

I was using Samsung Note 3 Neo. The MI5 has amazing features .... blindly go for it. Very good camera, fast processor and 32 gb space. What more do you want? Updates nearly every month.

Ronis, 26 Oct 2016Hi everyone. Was going through many user comments. I have purchased mi5 white 32gb on 14 Oct. ... moreSir .i have also come over my oneplus one but in my opinion the sound quality of one plus is far better .than this this is hanging and always u see emram full and kayboad i m typing from is hanging ..not better than oneplus company .
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.
