Does the global stabke rom has any issue worth noting? I heard some roms have issues with signal and gps, does the global stable have any of that?

Hi, If anyone facing phone as unreachable when sim is perfectly fine and outgoing and internet are working fine. only if someone call then its says as unreachable. Its happening with Airtel & Teletalk Bangladesh and MI service team saying issue is with MI5 and Airtel , Teletalk connectivity.. Is it right? Someone has any idea?? How can I solve it? No problem with Graeme phone or banglalink network.

Anonymous, 04 Sep 2016does miui8 global stable rom has released for mi5 officially?yes, it is officially released. you can find it in download section of official miui website.
p.s.: to change into global stable from china stable rom;
-first I had to flash china developer rom (unlock doesnt recognize china stable rom, you need developer version)
-then unlock bootloader.
-finally when you have unlocked your phone then you can flash global stable rom with miui 8.
bonus: you need to apply xiaomi to get unlock right from unlock web page officially run by xiaomi. it may take up to 10 days. so apply for it long before you start the process.
Will this phone work with Verizon CDMA? If so, can you put both a cdma and a gsm sim card in it and use them both? Thanks for any help you can give me.
Is there anyone from india, who bought 64gb from mi.com... how is it different from the 32gb ones, is it just the storage or is there some difference in the signal bandwidth..
It's normal if you play heavy games and internet surfing when charging the phone.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2016is this phone having heating issues? pls tell me asap . I am planning to buy it.The only issue I have is with the power button. But by activating quick ball (MIUI 8) and using tap to wake, I longer has to use the power button.
is this phone having heating issues? pls tell me asap . I am planning to buy it.
Guys, I noticed heating issues while phone is on charging OR while playing very high end games like Real Racing 3 (pretty hot) or NFS (decent warm)
Anyone facing this as well ??
Please do reply.
BinayaSyntech, 05 Sep 2016I heard we have to wake up the phone to use fingerprint scanner in Mi 5? Is this true?Yes, you have to wake it up.
But, If you press the button, then it takes both the inputs at the same time and unlocks it.
As pressing the button wakes the phone and scanner scans your finger.
You can do double tap to wake the phone.
