AnonD-276592, 21 Oct 2016Too generic.What is generic?
It uses mostly same materials as other flagship phone- metal, gorilla glass, antenna lines, Sony camera sensors, fingerprint scanner etc.
It is not trying to be like iPhone in looks either.
This just honest curiosity only.
aatif khan, 21 Oct 2016My honest question- how is it downgraded?Too generic.
AnonD-276592, 21 Oct 2016I think it is a downgrade in terms of design, just my honest opinion.My honest question- how is it downgraded?
I think it is a downgrade in terms of design, just my honest opinion.
aatif khan, 21 Oct 2016Good. But the fellow whom I replied knows Mi costs 40% less than G5. And paying that additi... moreI don't know where you live, but here LG 5 costs max 20% more than mi 5s. with the addicional waranty and support, from local stores (2 years waranty), since the mi 5s i need to buy it from internet usually with only 1 year). still mi 5s is a great device.
Bluerain, 20 Oct 2016My LG G5 has universal remote (IR Blaster) and an FM. :)Good.
But the fellow whom I replied knows Mi costs 40% less than G5. And paying that additional 40% just for FM tuner and remote control doesn't go down well in his head. But that anger is vented on poor Xiaomi, coz he can't do that on any other flagship I mentioned.
Gadgets ( like dressing sense) one carries reflects the personality of the owner. Flagship owners belong to a league who are more interested in productivity features and top notch performance rather than worrying about FM tuner and remote control. If it's included it's good, but need not be mandatory.
Blackberry were pure business gadgets. It never really needed FM or IR. It may be on decline, but it is still a preferred device for most of professionals. Only those who don't know it's productivity, criticises.
Nickhawk, 20 Oct 2016No infrared port, nor radio FM? Even the camera is also not very comprehensive. The next please! Do you have this device ? Or you are just commenting based on what your friends told you?
No high end / flagship phones have FM radio - Pixel, iphone7,Galaxy S7,Galaxy S7 edge,LG V20,One+3,HTC 10.
Check all the above mentioned flagships.
Are you buying a FM radio and universal remote control OR you want to buy a flagship device?
Mi5s is flagship offering of Xiaomi. They want to sell flagship devices and not FM tuner and universal remote control.
Nickhawk, 20 Oct 2016No infrared port, nor radio FM? Even the camera is also not very comprehensive. The next please! ah come on... get real... did you try it at all or you are just complaining for the sake of complaining?!?
