Good hardware but flaky software. Falls over and system apps randomly stop working or hang requiring reboot. Also full of ads and pesters for email, phone number etcetera, as well as non-standard Android apps which are hard to replace with Google's.
As Xiaomi have not (contrary to the Linux GPL) released the source code for their version of the kernel, developers can't port alternative and better versions of Android than Xiaomi's MIUI.
For that reason the Xiaomi Mi 5 or a OnePlus phone would have been a better choice for me.
RJ, 03 Apr 2017there is an option that you can disable soft button while using app or playing games. where can we find this setting? info pls
Impressive except the glass protection and LCD display where the OnePlus3T is superior but more expensive. I would love to have a camera spec like here on my next phone.
There is no a spare display provided by Xiaomi. If you broke the display you would throw the phone away.

Love it! Best phone I've had. No regrets, best value for money. Only wish it was water-resistant.

Is it available in india??
As the model is not available in any of the site... i want to know the pirice of this model... as i want to take it.
I have been using this phone for 3 months and I have only one complaint. When you hold it with two hands, you will occasionally accidentally press the home button, which is super annoying. There needs to be at least a very thin bezel below the buttons. I hope they fix it in the next version.
Other than that, I think this phone is perfect. Battery life is amazing compared to other flagships + it is 2x cheaper. I strongly recommend getting this over an iphone or a samsung.
