This Xiaomi also will get the next update to MIUI 11, maybe in June 2019.
But, the lack of MIUI 10.1.1.0 OAGMIFI was lag. Usually, when I finished play AOV game, then close the game, the system launcher would reload , made apps disappear for a while than reappear again. Not also AOV game, sometimes when I close camera app also like that. I was, had BBM, Gmail, WhatsApp, that running in background.
MIUI 10.1.1.0 OAGMIFI global stable was available several days before 2019. It was Android Oreo based. No new things, but Android version was based on Oreo 8.0 only.
Gaming performance is absolutely horrible for something with a Snapdragon 821 (brother's Mi 5S 3/64 on 10.1 global).
Fortnite is LITERALLY UNUSABLE. You spend more time on the lock screen than in an actual game.
PUBG runs terribly as well - within 15 minutes, the game becomes a slideshow.
Smaller games reload after you leave from it for just 30 seconds.
It's a shame, because the phone is still pretty good and capable for 2018...
Finally, I succeeded update via OTA to MIUI 10.1.1.0 Global Stable. Yes, it is still based on Android 7.0 (it is fine).
The UI looks fresh, icon apps becomes small, there are new icon apps. Sound plug charging, open lockscreen, take screenshot, be difference. Sounds simple and fresh sounds.
I had tested using WiFi, my network, tes YouTube, download Play Store, no problem. GPS is like in MIUI 184.108.40.206. It also no problem in charging. I write this while my phone is being charged. No problem.
I see also, the camera has new feature, portrait mode. I like the UI. For volume sound actually gives no problem for me. Yes, when you are listening music for example, you press volume up or down once, it won't change the volume. The first press will make the phone shows volume bar vertical.
For notification my apps, like Bukalapak, WhatsApp, Google, work fine. The LED notification also works. Finherprint yes, like before, it is slow. Double tap to wake is okay. For multasking, the display is different, RAM management looks better. There is also enterprise mode in the Settings, don't know what is it.
This is so far I see on my Mi 5s. I will add or write again if I find something good or negative things on this MIUI 10 Global Stable.
Mick, 26 Mar 2018 which one will better? Mi5 or Mi5s??? Mi 5s definetly.
Rudy, 19 May 2018Not good, has SD 821 but lag a lot, finger print is not too responsive tooMy Mi 5s 64 GB works great, no lag. I am on MIUI 220.127.116.11 Android Marshmallow. Yes, I admit for fingerprint not good, less reponsive, but others are fine.
I have just thi Mi 5s 64 GB version 2 days. So far this phone is amazing. I am currenty using MIUI 18.104.22.168. GPS works fine so far. Before I update to MIUI 22.214.171.124, the GPS is not good. Open Waze will not connect to GPS, can't open Grab application, even location setting had been set to high accuracy.
In MIUI 126.96.36.199, global rom on my phone, overall is work great. Calling, WhatsApp calling, incoming calls, video call WhatsApp, work great. No issue in Bluetooth, NFC, GPS (yes, if I compared to my BlackBerry Aurora, it is better GPS BlackBerry Aurora), internet 4G LTE.
The downside I think is the fingerprint sensor, not accurate, sometimes takes more than 12 seconds to open unlock screen.
Xiaomi.eu(unofficial global firmware that trims 200mb+ of crap out and includes many languages) you ensure your phone is unlocked then just install the Chinese weekly, enable root, flash twrp for your specific device found on the same weekly page at xiaomi.eu via Flashify with root (just download the apk https://phulla.com ), then install the xiaomi.eu firmware under twrp.
You only do that once. After install updates via the updater app when it's available or manually down directly from xiaomi.eu and use the "Choose update package" option in the updater app. Also the great thing about this is you don't need to wait around for weeks/months for official global firmware when a new device comes out.
Been using this phone one than one year , apart from minor issues this is a great performing phone.
Hello friends please help me
After my last update to my phone, my phone has been hit hard by the drop in speed and battery life.
Currently, the miui 188.8.131.52 version is installed on the phone, which is not really nice and has caused a total loss of the phone.
If I want to return the previous update, is there a way?
I am using it, fingerprint sensor lags. Sometimes apps shutdown itself even there is available memory. Especially Spotify along with Google Maps navigation. I have a ghost screen problem since day 10 of device purchase. Device really heats up when charging, software suggests close fast-charging but there are no options, I think they point that you should use computer USB to charge device in not-fast mode. Device heats up in normal use also but this doesn't effect performance generally, but LG display got ghost screen problem due to this overheat problem. I love its battery performance, it really can hold up 1 day even game play.
Not good, has SD 821 but lag a lot, finger print is not too responsive too
.-Alex-., 29 Apr 2018I love Compact size phones. the only downside of mi5s is batteryThe mi5s as the mi5 should have a very good battery life.thr only complain was at that time the fingerprint sensor and camera which now should have been solved..
Sandy, 28 Apr 2018Largan lens click far more better picture quality than sony lens. For comparison you can chec... moreYou could have P20 Pro then ;). I actually hate the tri-cam idea, but it has 1/1.7" primary camera sensor, which it makes the P20 Pro is the 4th biggest smartphone camera sensor, after Lumia 1050 (1/1.5"), Pureview 808 (1/1.2"), and Lumix CM1 (1")
.-Alex-., 29 Apr 2018I love Compact size phones. the only downside of mi5s is batteryWell, at that body size, 3200 mAh is normal.
Moreover, you could add some spices at your ROM to make it last better. I have lenovo a7000, it has 2900 mAh, 5.5" device, and it lasts up to 1.5 days ;).
Largan lens click far more better picture quality than sony lens.
For comparison you can check photo of Micromax Canvas A111 by zooming which is only 8 megapixels and feel the real picture quality and compare with any other 8 mp camera phones.
I hope Xiaomi will jump towards Largan lens.
In reality , picture quality of Micromax A111 was better than this phone.
So, I hope Xiaomi will choose better and higher quality camera lens in Xiaomi mi7.
Actually I want to have world's best camera on upcoming flagship phones.
The best Mi-series release. Ever. From Xiaomi.
Not even Mi5c, Mi6, Mi6X, or even the next Mi7 because it will adopt 1/3" dual camera, same glass body, and notchy 18:9 screen.
