I got mine directly from china and it came with miui 22.214.171.124.0.
Im from Malaysia. Yes i agreed, at the first time the phone seem to have connectivity issue. Like i said, i do some research and yes, the problem is from software not hardware.
I updated my miui to 126.96.36.199 and everything worked fine. No connectivity issue occur after that. I tested my phone as a hotspot. Using my ps4 as a medium to test it. I can play a game without having any connectivity issue until my phone battery drained out.
Read the miui global site. Even they admitted that miui 188.8.131.52.0 have some really serious bugs issue. And they even suspanded that version.
And im planning to upgrade my mi5 to pro version. I dont know about others, but i love this phone.
Just some info to share, i got it from the miui global site. Check your mi5, if your miui version is 5 digits for example x.x.x.x.x, its not officially from xiaomi. The official miui from xiaomi only have 4 digits for every version they have for example x.x.x.x
I wish i can make a long video just to prove that connectivity issue happen because of the bugs inside the os.

I used for a month and while camera, responsiveness and built are top notch but this phone has serious network issues. the network goes off and you end up getting missed calls sms after 1-2 hours.

mstaglicic, 21 May 2016Is Xiaomi Mi5 better than Galaxy S6 Edge ?first thing first, It's better if you save for Samsung Galaxy S7 rather than buying S6 Edge,
Mi5 is good, spec good, price good, lately depend on your location it does have customer and service center.
But of course good Flagship S6 is better than Mi5, basically the software optimization, works on details, or what people generally refer as "Quality" is higher. But it also have very different price range. Whether the "quality" difference worth your money is the question here.
Me myself is planning to switch to Redmi 3 because it have decent spec, large batteries, and very much within my price range. Surely Samsung A series might be better in "quality", but again the price is different.
I'm not a fan of xiaomi..I've been using Samsung for years. But this time I want to try new phone and new brand. So I try with xiaomi mi5. I fall in love with mi5 in a day. Love the features. Love the UI. Much better than other China's phones. The camera is good. It has stabiliser, time lapse, audio focus etc..
U can change the theme as well without third party application.
This phone really worth to buy. The quality is not bad. And yet not the best but this phone is cheaper
MMK77, 23 May 2016maybe a little better in spec but not in quality samsung fanboy ?
