On newer devices I see to make it simple it needs to be unlocked or a cable is needed. Qualcomm drivers now need to be side loaded via ADB, otherwise the method remains the same:
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://onhax.me/flashify), 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.

In reviews i found Z2 Plus is good but in amazon customer reviews they said the phone doesn't have QC 3.0. If is it incorrect I'll buy Z2 plus definitely.

1) 3500mah with 5 inch 1080p display (lemax2 & mi5 have smaller battery and bigger screens that are hard to handle in your hands, also Lemax2 has QHD Display & it will deplete a lot of power a lot faster)
2) 3.5mm jack (lemax2 doesnt have that)
3) 4gb ram & 64gb storage (xiaomi only has 3gb & 32gb plus there cpu is underclocked)
4) after sale service maybe better cuz lenovo is well established brand in india while xiaomis after sale service is crap (dont know about leecos service)
5) stock android experience and not zui
Some Cons too
1) storage is not fast ufc 2.0 but old slower mmc (sorry dont know exactly what both r called)
2) camera quality not so good for the price or so i have heard from users of z2 (though cpu gpu are too good for the price)
3) thicker size than the other 2 phones
4) may or may not have HW support to play HEVC 10bit 1080p videos which other 2 can play with mxplayer (still waiting for users to confirm about this)
For now i could only remember about all this. Also i will recommend u to extendyour budget and get oneplus 3. its better than all other 820 soc phones also has fast android updates and patch plus a lot more support for root & custom rom etc from xda community. But if u cant do that than go for z2.
I hope it helps. :)
I'm planning to but a new smartphone..my budget is below 23k. So i concider to buy Mi5 oru Lenovo Z2 Plus but after seeing Mi5s in internet i think this is the best from in the three phones.Unfortunately it's not released in India. Does anyone know when will launch this killer phone in India? And pls suggest which phone is best in under 23000 indian rupees
I hope they bring the duo to Nord America and with warranty support here.
Mohd Usman, 01 Oct 2016which camera is better mi5 or mi5sThe one with dual camera, Mi5s Plus.

Fastboot firmware you just plug it into the usb in fastboot mode(hold volume down and power button) and flash it via MiFlash under windows, make sure you tick to do a full wipe. This ensures nothing from the previous firmware interferes. http://en.miui.com/a-234.html for the MiFlash app and latest firmware.
Edit: I see you may need to unlock(I didn't have to). this is actually easy, you can apply now while signed into your Xiaomi account at the the link above, it takes 2 days usually. Once your account has the ability to unlock you can instantly unlock any Xiaomi phone.

where can i buy one here in the Philippines? if there are online stores, need suggestions..
Good device without too much inches of display. It should be better with baterry 3800-4000mah.
here in Philippines mi 5s & mi 5s plus is OUT, imported from CHN i think... the image of mi 5s here is wrong, the rear camera is in the middle of the phone.. not on the right side.
BoardDWorld, 28 Sep 2016Just go to en.miui.com to get official global firmware with Google apps and no Chinese apps etc. Its easy to get global stable rom from miui.com, but now you need to apply for pin password in order to flash your phone, isnt it correct?
WeezyLEF, 28 Sep 2016How can I buy one if I am outside China?https://www.ibuygou.com/categories/xiaomi-mi5s-1.html
