Very bad experience

Very bad experience so far after a week.
Bought Mi5 from NIS-store. Slow delivery for this price, too slow. The vendor permitted to DHL "drop on door" option. Nice ah? You can't claim damage during shipping after. I'm lucky to have the phone not damaged.
On the second day of using the device turned crazy. Every time the virtual keyboard was called the attack of dozens spontaneous touching hit the phone. I have a video.
Wrought vendor support, replied with: do the factory reset. Common guys! The device is 24 hours after first booting!
OK, factory reset, same crazy attacks.
So vendor asked me to send the device back, for my money, absolutely with the most expensive service. Cost me about 20% of phone price to send back something that was broken from the box.
After one month and dozen emails finally got the phone back, paid custom taxes again. The phone accumulated about 25% more price and not yet used normally for a day.
There is no more "self-touching attacks" so far, but the device is very difficult to use.
I'm personally like Google launcher, but Xiaomi doesn't. Freezings and malfunctioning all the way. OK, back to Miui launcher.
The touchscreen is so difficult to use. Moving icon to the next screen became an Everest mission, not less than 10 attempts before it's done.
It takes about 7 seconds to screen to start response after waking up. Imaging answer the phone calls. I have to keep Bluetooth garniture on all the time to not miss calls. Because Mister Phone has to take 7 seconds of waking up.
Sometimes one wake up is not enough. I have to turn the screen off and on few times to finally get the touchscreen response.
I'm not enjoying to have this device. I'm just waiting to change it to the real phone.
I don't understand so high ratings on reviews. It's not more than really beautiful and very stupid and annoying piece of plastic.
This is my tenth phone, fifth smart and the worst ever.
Not recommend to anyone.
