its battery heats up while charging maybe due to fast charger. its battery drains fast but also get charged very quickly. its back panel is slippery though negligible. the design is great and attractive and also performance is great and smooth as butter. sometimes the fingerprint sensor does not work though it is one of the fastest fingerprint sensor in the world.
it has these issues but also it is great phone to buy. I'm happy with it..
Friends get this first: Xiaomi seems to be a lot better and different than other Chinese Mobile companies. I meant the Mobile companies who only target to mass produce their products and dump at a cut throat price than other big brands and wash off their hands. One thing i observed is that even before ASS (after sale service) it is important to see that a Mobile Brand is offering a device which doesn't need service in 24 months. That's the quality i saw in my friends Mi5. Way to go Mi's. And now i am eagerly waiting for Mi6 already.
navid, 23 Jun 2016hi guys i want buy a new phone. i have 2 choise Galaxy A5(2016) and Xiaomi mi 5. what is your... moreDEFINITELY the Mi 5.The Galaxy A5 is midrange at best while the Mi5 is competing against the other flagships like the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge
Very nice phone! Ordered it off ebay and and i am very happy about it!
I live in Norway and the service i had worked fine on the phone!
It came with alot of useless chineese apps and stuff like that, but when i got play store installed, which i found a link to on the website for miui or something like that, every thing worked perfectly! Great camera witch takes super sharp photos.and i am very happy!
Great phone and i love tbe design. It is very light weight and i love it!
I've haf the phone for about a week now and i don't have any issue whit it getting hot or whatever. Only thing is the stock keyboard are not the greatest but you csn easily fix that by downloading one from the play store
Again i have to say it's one of the best phones i have owned.
Anonymous, 20 Jun 2016how is the loudspeaker does it crackle or is distorted and not clear?The sound quality is not the best, but it don't sound distorted or any thing in my opinion it has a good speaker
I would have bought this phone only if they hadn't used the underclocked snapdragon 820 and the internal memory was more (only 32gb variant available in india ) also its price is too much considering its specs . Bought oneplus 3 and am quite happy with it.
Woah, I thought this phone was really great until I found that it doesn't support United States bands.
This phone and another phone by the name of Lenovo ZUK Z2 came close, but they lack support for All of my bands (I have AT&T).
I guess that leaves the Sony Xperia X to be the only phone that fits all of the specifications of what I look for in a smartphone.
Veru poor service from MI, dont go for it. You have to repent in the end. Mi service do not respond for any issue after selling the device
Honest Straight Forward opinion:
Until you guys release mi5 with 4gb ram and full potential 820 processor[2.25] you guys wont sell more than 10 pieces for sure.
Why xiaomi is looking down upon indian consumers. Very Bad.
Looking at current market, price range for this would be between 20k to 22k not more than that.
RABIYA, 23 Jun 2016which one is better ? apple s6 or mi 5 ? Obviously Mi5

What the difference between pro and other editions.i want to buy 128 Gb or 4 Gb ram and also what about it's rear camera.can it's camera better than iPhones 6s. Also 4 Gb ram edition is a dual sim.
