Purple ?? Don't u mean pink or rose gold ?
Great phone, great price. Not sure about the colour, though.
+£20 for delivery or risk being held by customs + paying a bunch of import/customs fees. Seems to be about 50/50 chance of being held by customs for things like this.

Even with customs it's a really good price. Shame about the colour.

Purple is the colour the seller has it listed as not the best of colours but you can always put a case on it in fact i would recommend doing it as the glass backed phones are very slippery i have the Mi6 and it slides of the arm of the sofa so i use a case now

If you pay the £19.22 for the no customs charge dhl delivery (£160.84) it is still a excellent price for this spec phone personally i would risk the free shipping

Yeah I clicked on your link. Was after the purple as that's the colour my wife is after.
The white 3gb/64gb is £141.62 from the same seller and with DHL it comes to £160.84.
The DHL method will be no customs. They play the system, the device gets shipped to one location in the EU with one tracking number then moved to a couple of others with a different tracking number. They are pretending they are warranty repairs being returned or something like that.

Having ordered multiple devices from GearBest and BangGood I can assure the chances are much lower than it "seems" to you. I have never had an issue or any charges applied. Paying for delivery is actually riskier in these cases.

The BL5000 has 4gb ram not 6gb and mtk soc and a antutu score of 44000 whereas this has a antutu score of 140000 so no comparison

Yeah I've ordered countless things from them and other chinese sites, maybe like 50 things by now. If the product is something below £50 chances are it's fine you wont get charged like you say, and most of the time stuff from Gearbest is cheap things worth like £1-10. But when you start ordering phones and tablets and on the package it lists them and shows a price of £100 or more then the chances seem to be closer to 50/50. I've ordered 2 phones and a tablet from China, ranging from £100-220, the most expensive one got held and i think on the package it was listed as being worth £110. Ended up paying about £18 for tax and handling fees.

Can't comment on Mi6, but I've just sold one of these and had no complaints of the camera.

If I'm not wrong, the Mi5 has the same camera sensor as the Pixel and with the Google Camera port, the picture quality is excellent.
Seems to be holding its value quite well, bought mine over a year ago for £180 from BG and it's been overall excellent. Further improved after ditching MIUI for LineageOS and the Google Camera port is superb.

Looks like the Mi5s has the IMX378 which is the sensor as the Pixel.

Mi5 has the IMX298, same as the OnePlus 3T and others.

That being said, still very happy with image quality since using the Google Camera port even in low light.
I got a chinese version of the phone and put the international ROM on it. NFC for google pay etc... works perfectly.

The camera is good, not Samsung S8 or iPhone 8 good but still very capable.

I really can't fault the phone and this is a silly price for it.
Tempted to go for this, I've got the Xiaomi Mi A1 but this is a stupidly good deal for this phone.
was eyeing this up earlier but is this going to be a better bet than either the MiA1 or the Redmi 5 plus for similar money? I was thinking this is maybe a bit long in the tooth now.....

does this have led notifications, and whats the andriod miu please, i guess its not stock andriod then. also is band 20 needed for uk?
My girlfriend lost her gold Mi 5, had it for a year, can anyone recommend a max £200 phone (probably a Xiaomi) instead of this? I have found the gold version for £134 here but am open to other budget devices that can hold their ground against this very good, but slightly dated phone?

Thanks.

It has a notification Led, but no stock android. Whether you need band 20 depends on your network.
For people worried about the colour or the glass, it is possible to change the glass back of a Mi5 to a plastic coloured one. I changed one from gold glass to green plastic.

HDR+ on the google camera port is amazing but requires root. Standard camera is very good for a phone in this price bracket.
Hey. To anyone who has this phone... Is the camera any good?
I have this phone in white and absolutely love it. It replaced a Samsung Galaxy S6 which I lost and this is much smoother to use with a better battery life. MIUI takes some getting used to, particularly the power management which stops app running in the background and results in a tremendous battery life for the size of the battery but can stop notifications or music, audio apps running while you're listening - it just takes a few tweaks in the settings for the apps that you don't want to be killed.

Worth noting that some users were complaining of GPS issues but I've never had a problem and it may have been solved in the most recent update.

Yeah camera is actually very good for this kind of money. Not as good as the latest flagships but subjectively I'd say it's around the same level as a Galaxy S6 i had before. It's nice and responsive too.
anyone know what the size of the phone is, my current one is 5.6" and i dont want anything bigger? also is this getting latest andriod update? also whats the brighness like of the screen.

There is a Mi5s plus which has a 5.7" screen slightly better snapdragon 821 soc 4gb ram 64 gb rom and it has dual camera on back on Banggood for £195 sory cant post link HUKD have banned banggood for some reason but if you go to banggood and search for Xiaomi MI5s plus i'm sure you'll find it and use code 3BGM5SP64G at checkout to fetch price down to £195 its gold colour one
Edited by: "BUCKUM2" 8th Mar
Good deal, great phone. Used it on three network when I had it, no problems with 4g on that.
Had mine for a year. Very impressed although I'm not really a phone person. Got some great pictures, no problem with Google Maps, good reception. Does exactly what I need
I've had this phone for about 18 months, it is fantastic, I have the 32 gig one. My only regret is not getting the 64 gig. Battery lasts at least 1.5 days without turning anything off, camera is great. Will definitely get a new Mi, although I'm not sure about not having a 3.5mm slot on the mi6
