I have this phone almost 1 years. In 2021, I think it is not the best gaming phone. I have heating issues. This phone's performance would be the best if it doesn't have the heating issue. Camera and battery are good enough. It only has heat
I bought in 2016 and use it until 2019 and give it now to my kids
Excellent phone, have mate 20x for now and it is solid
like the wide screen of it which we miss after 2018
i suggest asus 7 pro to be my next phone wide
Bought mine in 2017 and it still works perfectly. Too bad the dual camera is not for bokeh mode. Screen is good, battery life good...but no MIUI 11 update...tp bad.

I don't understand what people could be doing on their phones that causes such a drain to charge more than 1 time every 24hrs (me its 1 time every 48hrs). :)
I've filled the memory within 14months of having it, had to dump it to a computer, but its still performing as the day I got it. :)

Despite its normal thing that battery would degrade after 2.5 yrs or so, the unlucky thing is that we can't find genuine battery replacement anywhere (if anybody hv info please let me know). Btw I'm using official Lineage OS (v15.1) which fairly stable and significantly lighter than the original.
Bobby, 30 Dec 2018Guys, is this a good phone for heavy gaming? And can I expect it to last more than 2 years? I have the Mi 5 & Mi 5s Plus. Very problematic. Xiaomi is strictly not recommended in my humble opinion.
This phone is suck since updated to miui 9 and 10. They need deleting thermals to be powerfull smartphone.

And can I expect it to last more than 2 years? Well, I have the phone. There is some throttling when charging but otherwise, it fine. I can split screen a demanding game (Dissidis Final Fantasy Opera Omnia) and YouTube and the phone can handle it just fine.
I'd recommend a newer model like the Mi 8 though
Bobby, 30 Dec 2018Guys, is this a good phone for heavy gaming? And can I expect it to last more than 2 years? No it's not. On upcoming year(s) gaming will be more demanding. This phone do handling better than mediocre specs but it's not the best choice to handle heavy gaming usages. You need to find phone with better chipset & better batt capacity.

Global stable Oreo update was coming to my phone on Yest. Around 1.6GiB. At first it lags like crazy however after clearing the caches everything looks normal.
milkinc, 14 Sep 2018Just got Oreo thoughOfficial Global ROM with MIUI9 is still Android 7.0.
But the MIUI10 on the beta version already is Android 8.0, so just need to wait for the update.
At least it will officially updated to Android 8.0.
Hey guys wdyt, Mi5, Mi5S, or Mi5S Plus? Which one is better on performance?
