2 month ownership. Bugged Chinese rom. Cumbersome and scary flash to global rom. But thereafter pure joy and I can only praise this amazing phone (Mi5 pro), both in terms of function and design. All positive remarks in this forum are justified. Acquired because of need for dual Sim, but would choose it again above any other phone. Never thought I would abandon the Nexus line of phones: gave my 6P to my son!
Anonymous, 19 Aug 2016Why cant my mi5 read my otg flash disk? Its frustatingggTry using ES File Explorer if your OTG drive is NTFS formatted,
otherwise just format it into FAT32 or exFAT to read it using default app.
Mi5 heating issues solved or not? Because I want to buy it..
& Tell me about other issues.. Need a review..
Try flash memory you formatted to FAT32, if it is formatted in NTFS, OTG from Xiaomu MIUI will not read USB flash memory.

I am using Xiaomi Mi5 for 2 months and I am enjoying a lot the excellent performance and spetacular images from camera and videos delivery from this smartphone. The baterry for me that use all the time between videos, mails, browsing and somtimes games extends for 6 to 8 hours without recharging.
It's camera quality excellent.90 minutes time full charges and it's work so quick.

Anonymous, 11 Aug 2016How it's front camera?? Only 4 mp?? Is good?? Pls ansr!! it has an awesome quality, all the ladies fall in love with it. the software has a stupid rating system which tries to guess your age or rates your beauty from 1 to 10. girls try so many selfies on my phone i have a huge duckface gallery now. :S
I bought this Mi5 around 2 weeks ago & have been amazed by its performance. Cost US$385 for 3G 64GB version in Thailand. The battery life is incredible & can get almost 2 days with moderate to heavy use. For me the battery life is number 1 issue since I need at times to be out of the house (travelling very lite) from 6am - midnight. The mi5 easily does this for me. My only small criticism is the finger print sensor...I would rather it just be a touch sensor...rather than having to push it in....even though it's very responsive & accurate. I've also a Nexus 5X....it's had a lot of bad press....unfairly in my opinion? The only thing to let down the 5X is the battery life....it would get my through the day...just...with some nursing & I don't want to be looking at the battery level half way through the day
I better buy branded expensive but good. rather than buying a cell phone china cheap but full of bugs bugs and bug
