​Any idea if there will be a larger 5.5" inch variant of this?

I had the 128GB model of this phone and changed to a OnePlus 3T and in all honesty I prefer the Mi5, it was more usable the 5.5" screen is just beyond comfortable use for me. I'm going to be looking at the Mi6 once it becomes more readily available.

Great price and also a great phone.

There is supposed to be a plus model to come rumoured to be 5.7' and 8gb of ram and 2k screen

Do these things do 4g on Three ?
looked at the links, but non the wiser ;-(

All phones are generic now, massive leaps in phones have come and gone, from now on it is incremental or luxury. I don't get how people can moan at this spec for less than a Moto G5 Plus?

They all use band 20:

O2 - band 20
Three - band 20 and band 3
Vodafone - band 20 and band 7
EE - band 20 and band 7

All the mobile operators use Band 20 for rural coverage, as its lower frequency (800mhz) means the signal travels further.

I have been using this Mi5 for the last year with no issues at all, tethered it to my laptop today on the train from york to london and had internet the whole way apart from the long tunnels

I bought the Mi5s in Silver just before Christmas from Ali Express; at the time I paid around £240. I couldn't be more pleased with it, for the bang-to-buck it just makes a mockery of the Apple and Samsung premium price point. The quality of the phone, screen, audio etc is all premium and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend, nor to consider another Mi in the future. For £190, it's hard to beat.

The Mi5 is an amazing phone. Really quality feel, very fast, awesome camera and has a good battery life. Xiaomi is the biggest phone manufacturer in China. I bought a few cheaper Chinese phones, but there was always something a bit fiddly with them that drove me crazy. There is none of that with the Mi5, I bought another one for my wife last month and she loves it. Can't recommend it enough.

Voted hot great phone

I like the sound of this phone, having considered a few around the £200-£250 (MotoG5+, MotoG4+ etc). the reviews seems really good, so I'm very tempted. Anyone any idea how much import duty would be for this ?

So, if I am with o2, will I switch to another network provider that has coverage?


Turns out my iPhone 5 also doesn't have band 20.

I own one of these and am very happy with it. It's super fast, screen is great (excellent In bright sunlight), build quality top notch, never run out of battery before the end of the day(+phone charges very quickly) , camera way better then my previous Redmi note 2 and my wife's moto g3. Haven't tried android pay so can't comment on that.

Likely hood of getting a charge is minimal with the standard included post though possibly £35ish after the courier adds their collection fee if you are unlucky.

​You don't need to change for the phone to work, but if you are on O2, you definitely won't get 4G.

I am looking to get away from Samsung bloatware, and ideally wanted to give stock Android a go. How does this phone compare?

does google pay work on Mi5 in UK ?

The reviews say so yes.

​Yes, I used it last night.

​I wouldn't be going with this if you want stock android. This has a heavily skinned mi ui. Unless you are wanting to go down the path or rooting the phone and custom roms I would look elsewhere

£190.86 on a phone ?
madness you can just use a callbox
