I bought one of these about a month ago. At first it looked ok but as I went further deep into its apps and configuration menus I found some serious problems.
The major flaw that I found is its inability to record sounds, either with its video or audio recording app's. The recorded sound level is so low that its completely unintelligible.
I looked for help in XIAOMI forums and google just to find out that this is a long standing problem in many XIAOMI phones, not just this one. In spite of several firmware updates I received during this last month, the problem still persists. It seems the manufacturer is unable or unwilling to solve it, so if you're planning to video record social events or your children birthday party go and buy a different brand .... unless you're a fan of silent movies.
In 4G / LTE a fully charged battery goes flat in less than 6 hours, but in 3G it can last 5 days or more under light use.
