My Final review: Last one on Mi5. Already did 3 in the same thread.
Bought on 1st. Sale on Mi5 in India.
Excellent Screen and Sunlight legibility.
(-) Today as I write I am back on iP5s and Note-4. I sold on Quikr for 21K.
Only 1 reason why I sold: SIM card connection lost. Network goes come and back frequently and you loose calls.Obviously you don't know. This happened 10 times a day (I thought may be genuine network issue) but even in my office, i started missing calls and do not know when I am ON /OFF. Cannot afford in my work. Very SAD.
Checked with service centre they treated me like a novice, Restart/Manually check (sic). Later saw on youtube almost all reviews mentioned this. Till last week was waiting eagerly for MIUI8 but now waiting for 6.0 to come to my Note4. Very sad.
A good looking phone with no excess heating, above average battery but loses out on BASIC FUNCTION. My recommendation DO NOT BUY TILL MIUI8 rectifies. You can live will all issues but without network CANNOT.
ZaWaD15, 10 May 2016lg g4 or xiaomi mi5? what's your opinion guys LG G4 is a classic beauty.
On GSM Arena's Specs page for Mi5, you can 'check prices' at WE Electronics. At the moment, this is $849 for the 64GB version. You can get this same model for only $449 at Honorbuy or Gizchina. WE Electronics charges rip-off prices.
I just bought mi5 black yesterday from honorbuy, here are my first impressions.
I didn't find any trash apps or preinstalled chinese, google store was installed.
No problems at all, inserted sim & 4g worked perfectly, same for dials. Played a bit, did multitasking, no heating at all. 109k Antutu,, little beast for it's price. I'm satisfied with it.
Be sure to avoid buying fake ones, that's the souce of all the negative comments here.
Using mi5, best decision I've ever made on a phone. Fluid, fast, gr8 battery life, great camera, no lag, no excessive heating, beautiful phone, and finally great price. I would buy 4 if i could.
Using MI5 and I regret buying this. It hots up while charging and playing games. It is like oven. Even using of camera apps make the phone hot.
k, 09 May 2016Samsung J7 is betterLol.... Was that a joke, then it was a good one. Even the redmi note 3 pro is better than the j7 at a much lower price.
ifedith, 09 May 2016Why not redmi note 3 pro which is better than the j5Also cheaper than the j5
k, 09 May 2016Get Samsung J5 at half the price.Why not redmi note 3 pro which is better than the j5

kay j, 08 May 2016so mam as per choice which phone is better under 30k ..... The CS didnt make you understanding 😂 you should ask some lolipop, then the u der will stand. You must thanks them as they gave you others have to buy and they bought it witout any complained 😂
Vipul Bariya, 06 May 2016How about Samsung S6 ? Which would be better between G4 or S6 in terms of camera comparison &a... moreIn Camera Lg g4 is good at low light and auto focusing and Samsung is good at HDR and zooming. both phones' cameras are good at general shooting. But i preferred lg g4 for its selfies. Both have great softwares built-in. Dont go for reviews as websites get paid by companies for their phones so see a person who bought one of the phone and check it personally.
