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.
AnonD-587428, 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?

AnonD-590740, 28 Sep 2016Millions do. Unless of course you own something that doesn't have ir. LOLSo true. Lol!
Excited to see how MI UI will take advantage of the 3D Touch tech.
Will the camera be better than OnePlus 3?
Is there any OIS in Mi5s and plus camera?
What will be the usage of 3D touch in Android?
If not useful maybe better off to Mi5 plus, what do you think?
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2016Qualcomm dropped radios long time ago, wake up..Not true. LG G5 with Snapdragon 820 has FM radio and also the Xiaomi mobiles with Snapdragon 430, 650 and 652 has it.
A good luck using your streamed radio when there is a power outage, you need information and mobile data is no longer available. But at least you can use your mobile to tell the current time, cause you can't use it for much else.
Or using it where there is no coverage, or abroad when roaming etc. Can't believe that so many people are so shortsighted...

Have you ever know that OIS is even harmful to Image Quality in good light condition? Mobile camera lens is very slow and hence it is almost useless in shooting moving objects in night. Bigger pixel and faster lens are more efficient than OIS.
