No Band 20 and no Micro-SD card slot, other than that, it looks like a great phone.

Good value is it not for this level of equipment.

No, it's combed.

I need a solid answer, do u know why this one is brushed/not brushed and do u know which versions are brushed

I thought all mi5s were brushed

Only the 128GB version is brushed.

That's not true. The white version has a plain texture on the back (64 or 128), and only the grey version (on any storage option) has the brushed metal back.

Not 100% certain but I don't think there are brushed versions anymore. When it was first announced, the Mi5s product images showed brushed versions of all colours. However Xiaomi later updated the Mi.com Mi5s product page. If you scroll to the bottom, there's the different storage options and colour select. No configuration of storage/colour shows a brushed back, nor do any of the product images. The only videos on youtube to show a brushed version are grey/black and were from soon after the Mi5s was announced (before it became available to buy). All unboxing videos or hands on reviews seem to be matte even 128gb models. I think retailers which have images showing a brushed back could just using old Xiaomi product images.

Ordered, cheers! Had TCB + code work from BangGood before so I went through TCB as well, potentially another 7.8% but even without it this is still a good deal for basically a new flagship.

There are none, but there are for the 128gb white showing a matte back, so the storage size isn't a factor. There's also posts like this one which suggest brushed option was removed. If you compare the Mi5s Plus product page they have a paragraph detailing the matte and brushed versions (above the image of the rose gold version). However, the standard Mi5s product page doesn't mention brushed version and all the product images are now matte. The only unboxing videos of a grey with brushed back like this one, are from before it became available to buy and don't mention it being a 128gb model. The most recent Mi5s grey unboxing shows a matte finish. It is the 64gb but there are no hands on videos of any Mi5s with a brushed back that specify 128gb, nor are there any that were made after it became available to buy hence why I assume there is no brushed version anymore.
