Not up to the mark.. Phone is getting heat for normal use & UI lag
By Prasad Durga | 4 May 2016
I bought It in the last week. I could see few problems major : Phone is getting heat like hell. even if you open light weight App like watsapp (or even if you open single app) its getting heat. Minor : There is a UI lag in the phone & My new phone is also getting stuck sometimes even if you don't open many apps. this phone is slipper, we need to have case cover for sure or else It slips very easily in the hand. +ve : Rich & stylish look.

Highly disappointing Battery performance of Mi5
By Rafiq Beigh | 22 Apr 2016
I was using Mi Note LTE before I got my hands on Mi 5 Indian version. The performance of the phone is very poor as compared to Mi Note particularly in terms of Battery consumption and Touch sensitivity. The Android system installed in Indian version of Mi 5 MIUI V7.2.2.0 (MAAMIDC) consumes more than 50% of the battery (which is 5-10% in case of Mi Note even with the same 3000mAh battery and bigger 5.7" display) and same is the case with the display which consumes approximately 20-30%. I failed to understand how the same phone ran for about 14 hours in battery loop test in the review posted by NDTV Gadgets. Even in standby mode during night battery gets drained by at least 20%. I was highly disappointed by the battery performance of the phone and will never suggest anyone to buy this phone. I think the Chinese giant Xiaomi has dumped their garbage in the Indian market in the form of Mi 5.
