Just purchased mine this afternoon. Cost about USD 362 at current exchange rate. Pretty sure I can get it for cheaper if I'm willing to buy the bloatware-ridden-bugy-chinese ROM version from some shady "distributor" with practically no after sales services. But I'm willing to spend some extra money for peace of mind.
And I got to say, I'm really happy with this phone. Runs smoothly and the UI is so clean.. Almost vanilla like. I use this to replace my still in mint condition but pretty outdated Sony Z3. And I can say that Mi5 is miles ahead of that one. Practically this phone is on galaxy S7 class with half the price. Totally with it
I have it for about 3 weeks
Its good phone with nice and strong body with a good screen.

$.k.m., 02 Jul 2016Le max 2 is for you 6gigs+64gigs+2k scr.+ bit heavy +if you have time to wait then you expect ... moresame question again, have you actually tried xiaomi mi 5 . for longer than 5 Minutes. !!!
[deleted post]Le max 2 is for you 6gigs+64gigs+2k scr.+ bit heavy +if you have time to wait then you expect from HUAWEI and ASUS, which release in india in few months.But you should try ONE+3 great build quality it can't bend easily +camera is bit better then mi5.
got the mi 5 yesterday, sold my oneplus 2 (because it was just to heavy and to big for the screen size) and bought my first Xiaomi the Mi 5. what a phone it is, awesome design and very fast. until you have one don't comment. i have had most phones available but this is the pinnacle of mobile phones. but like everything nothing is perfect and until the software bugs are fixed via software updates then it will get some negative comments. but every phone available have some small imperfections. Snapdragon 820 is the best in this slim body.
fan, 28 Jun 2016which is better to purchase xiomi mi5 or one plus 3 ?One plus 3 is better than Mi5 of course.
Well guys, let me tell you about my rather short experience with the new bought ohone mi 5... The courier arrived with the phone and i shall call that 0 hour... Got it, opened it, it had 44 % battery, and i've started to install different apps on it like facebook, messenger, maps, see what neededd to be updated, nothing critical. Then i went to sleep after 2 hours let's say, i charged it even in less than 2 hours it was at 100%, and set it to a less battery drain mode.
Next day had some work to do so i didn't have time to play with it, i only entered google maps to localy download a map,and then set on a 30 min traffic journey on which the phone acted as a gps guide. Got home, at 22 hours from moment 0 and i've got a message that the carrier settings were updated and that i should reboot my phone so the settings appply, so i did, and that concluded my experience with my mi5 as i hit reboot, the phone got... Yeeees, BRICKED. I get the mi logo, android down, and that's how it stays and runs hot like hell...
Problems i've seen, it gets hot, but from others it seems it's normal for a 820 SOC.
If you close somehow the fast charging app, the phone stops charging ( happened at 77% when i was fiddling with it, it was in the first 2 hours, and then the small and rather annoying part... It briked... Monday morning i'll send it back to the local shop that i bought it from and see from there where it gets me... Shortes experience with a brand new phone ever.
Hitesh, 29 Jun 2016thanks a lot bro. for your reply. can you please tell us below, (1) does this xioami mi... moreInitially it was getting heat while charging & battery was also getting drained very fast but after update heating is gone & battery is performing well. I am not very heavy user but gives me 20-24 hrs easily now with 3G always o n.

AnonD-506239, 30 Jun 2016Huawei makes nicer phones.Man , 1st reason , huawei UI is pretty much based on MIUI which is XiaoMi's User interface , and ofc everybody wants the original one , 2nd reason , Huawei puts the product price at a ridiculous high-end price which the quality is not better that mi5 . Does it really needs to argue?
The Bluboo Maya with 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, 13MP camera and Android 6.0 OS, only at $69.99,I have order 1 just waiting for it's arrival :)
are xiaomi phones better than samsung camera wise and sound wise. plz tell me
fan, 28 Jun 2016which is better to purchase xiomi mi5 or one plus 3 ?If you looking for better customisation and stay away from android stock then Mi 5 is better in term of user user interface.
