​No Mi5 supports band 20.

Some of their international models have B20. No shortage of phones with B20. But models without B20 are much cheaper. So you make up for poor or incomplete reception in UK with cheaper price​

​Hey, Sam. How you doing? I know some models have B20, but as I said, there is no version of the Mi5 with B20. Also, it has nothing to do with price, more the intended market. Further, my Mi5 has never not had good 4G coverage. Now, do you fancy that pint?

SIMPLE QUICK SEARCH ON ALIEXPRESS GIVES ME PRICE £204, POSSIBLY SUB £200 AFTER 8% QUIDCO:

Therefore cold for me as you get it for £188-£189.

For all who do not know xiaomi: I came from Sony experia Z (cracked) to Mi max 6.44" with SD652 and it was a beast regarding performance. Delivery took only 2 weeks and seller included free glass protector and gel cover.
But it was too big for me so after 3 months I bought S7 edge. I'm not happy with 1 day battery life as mi max gave me at least 3 days ( after rooting and some tweaks). Will go back to xiaomi as soon as I sell s7. Thinking of redmi note 4 with b20 band and SD 625 which is OK for me as I'm not gamer (about £120). Good quality metal build phones, smooth os experience, but miui takes few days to get use to...

What are people's thoughts on whether the Mi6 is worth the extra?
Review suggest Mi5 64GB is better option and cheaper too. it's less than £186 at Geekbuying with official global ROM and OTA updates.
Review suggest that Mi5 64GB is better option than Mi5s and cheaper as well. You can Mi5 64GB with official global ROM and OTA updates for only about £186 at Geekbuying.

Can you compare the two for those who have no idea how they differ?
How come it's better and cheaper?
Does anyone know when the mi6 will be at a decent price or shall I wait to get the one plus 4/5

Also the Mi5 has a camera with OIS, while the Mi5s has a very similar camera set-up to the Google Pixel. Both have their advantages.
I've heard the ceramic Mi5 body is more prone to breaking / snapping than the Mi5s.
I have the Mi5s 128GB / 4GB model - amazing phone for the price (I paid £310 shortly after launch, including 7 day delivery).

i would also like to point out Mi5s has better processor.

what's the point in telling us about the grey version when it returns in stock after the premotion ends. can you pre-prepped it in some way or something?
Will these work with android pay?
Google gives me conflicting results

My mistake
NO MICRO SD! Damn it what is it with the phone manufacturers these days.
I've this phone and Bluetooth is really a big problem with car audio system.
Turn off screen auto rotate - swipe gestures are really weird.
UK isn't available as the regional setting.

I have a mi5s using on EE with no issues, 4G connectivity is fine, works well with my 2015 VW Golf infotainment system.
No issues with swiping either.
Camera is roughly on a par with my iphone 6 which I was happy with anyway.
Only issue I have had is I can't get lock screen notifications for certain apps.
You can now pre-order the grey version for a decent price
Good phone, cold deal - cheaper on aliexpress

I'm just using the latest ROM which I got through OTA. Bluetooth connection drops & reconnects very very frequently so I stopped using it.
Good luck trying to get the black/grey version from Banggood.
I pre ordered one last Nov was supposed to come in stock in 3 weeks.
Never arrived and the stock date changed to the end of the next month.
True they are bad, but I ordered one from them and it arrived ok. in fact I'm using it now
