1. charging only
3. transfer Photos(PTP)

Can any one tell why my mi5 doesnt detect pendrive through type c otg. Usb fan works with that otg. Even other type c phones detect pendrive througth otg cable
This phone has no band 800, but I'm living in the UK and it works perfectly.
If it doesn't catch 4G it will catch 3G you won't even notice the change

- register urself for "unlocking device" @ xiaomi
(- update ur current rom through local onboard tool)
(- maybe u need to register urself @xiaomi and use credential on device, so they can get paired; no idea if it was needed)
- upgrade to chinese Developer version (Download file to device and use installed mi update tool)
- after u reboot to fastboot und install CWM; had trouble flash this, but u can also boot the CWM image directly
- from there u can install CM13 to ur device.
My CM13 experience is quite satisfying, as everything runs. Hope u can deal with upgrade to "Vanilla/CM13"

spiric, 17 Sep 2016Have it for a last 10 days fitted with MIUI GLOBAL 8.0 Stable. I have never experienced phone ... moreI am in India...I Bought on recommendation of my son ....with hg expectations bt not liking it...its slow ..slower than my mi4i ...fingerprint sensor is too good..bt battery n performance wise its lacks... I bought just for performance n not satisfied ... I am not gamer bt continue on social networking so I consider myself as heavy user...battery max upto 5-6 hours not more than tht... Overall I disappointed by Mi5
I totally disagree with you. Type c charger is the future. Xiaomi mi 5 is the best phone
I have been using xiaomi mi 5 for the last two months. No heat issue. No lagging issues. No hanging issues. No fast draining issue. All these problems mentioned by users are because of carrier problems, which are common to other manufacturers. Xiaomi mi 5 pro is light, fast and ergonomic design. Recommended
