mi5s new user, 17 Jul 2017Hi everybody
I've just received my new mi5s (128 GB) today, I tested every thing quickly, it'... moreOk, Issue solved!
Today I received the new OTA update (miui 22.214.171.124), no overhrating issues any more :D, it's cool now!
In Addition to some very good enhancements to the UI, in terms of speed, ram management and featchers (toggles space now can be expanded in the pull down shade),
Also fingerprint sensor got a noticeable boost in terms of accuracy and speed, still not perfect though.
The Doc, 25 May 2017I have the Mi5s and the S7. The Mi5s is nowhere near as good as the S7I'm a former user of S7 flat and S7 Edge.... im now using this. Those three smartphones including this are great both in performance and built. No device is perfect. Even S7 edge has the best appearance for last year's but it has a fragile body. Mi 5s has good balance but Xiaomi doesnt have its service center everywhere. So it depends on people to choose based on common opinion and facts not listen to such a bias opinion like yours. Tell specific whats the reason you could say that? Not just your tale.
I've just received my new mi5s (128 GB) today, I tested every thing quickly, it's a good phone overall,
my only concern is that it gets too hot while in charging! even if I'm not using it! it really becomes too hot and unpleasant to hold! is this normal?
mi5s users, please answer me, do u have the same issue?.. thank you in advance

Xiaomi Mi series phone only comes with internal memory, no slot for Micro SD card add on, so no need bother on Micro SD card support.
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2017Why does it say the Mi 5S can do 1080p video at 120fps?its slow motion
If anyone of you has the 64GB or 128GB version, can confirm for me if this phone's internal storage can store single video file that is larger than 4GB? I just found out this limitation on my Micro SD card where in FAT32, I cannot store file over 4GB. Advises are formatting to exFAT or NTFS, but neither of the format can be supported by my phone.

So, in reality Xiaomi Mi5s is far more better than Samsung S6.
Plz suggest mi5s VS galaxy s6 ? which one should i prefer in terms of value for money and user experience ? In terms of cost, do these have same cost? i.e using phone for certain period and then selling it after you are done. Plz suggest?

I have two mi 5s 64 and 128 both gray .
You are nail it . I don't think will ever see thi... moreThank you for your reply
Actually, after watching more videos I noticed the color shift (you mentioned) while in different lighting conditions, sometimes it looks silver and shiny, other times gray and matte! but in both cases the finish is matte and NOT BRUSHED METAL!
I still think that there is a version (maybe exclusive to china market) had a brushed metal finish (similar to the Redmi Pro and MI 5s plus).
if you want to check it yourself you can type the following in Youtube search bar:
"chinese 5s-5s plus" or "Buy or not to buy Mi5S Mi5S Plus review"
and check the first result for each search, you'll see what I mean (the brushed metal version of MI 5s).
Anyway, I'm gonna order the global version (the only option I have) which has matte finish, I think it looks fine and maybe better than the brushed metal version (in certain lighting conditions!)
