The best of them all! Excellent battery life, super fast and dual sim puts the cherry on top. Awesome camera will built in effects! Never been happier with a smart phone

Ian, South Africa. 6 June 2016

Love love love the device!

Currently using the dual SIM functionality, and have had no issues. The lack of an app drawer is overcome quickly enough (Folders for me), and the fingerprint sensor is snappy and relatively accurate. The camera is also pretty good with sufficient lighting.

Overall, an excellent performer in the price bracket

Fantastic phone huge issue with GPS not working. It seems to be a common problem... Hope they will fix it. Will be returning phone

Mladen, South Africa. 11 July 2017

What could I possibly say other that I'll never ever buy another phone than Xiaomi. In less than 1.5 years, I've managed to get my whole family and a lot of my friends move over to either Mi4 or Redmi 4A. Couldn't wait to collect enough miles to buy a Mi5.

Good Value for money. My unit shipped with a cover. Takealot also sells tempered glass screen protectors now, check em out.

TIP; if you on Momentums rewards program (Multiply) , you can buy Takealot vouchers less 20%. Thats how I purchased my Mi5

Donglei Max, South Africa. 20 October 2017

Bang for your buck compared to the R10k+ phones which I think is a little extreme. Comes with a transparent cover. Camera is quite good. Having owned the phone for about 8 months, battery lasts about a day and a half. Records your phone calls which is nice (no need for 3rd party apps). Dual SIM is the best, prepaid-Vodacom for voice and Axxess for mobile-data. Fingerprint sensor is quite quick. Screen could do a bit better in terms of brightness in sunlight. Quick-charge really is quick charge...under and hour from 30% battery.

Message to Takealot - please bring in more Xiaomi phone-variants ! :)

Great phone. Works fast, great interface.

Excellent value for money, South Africa. 3 September 2016

Fast, fluid, fantastic camera, 32gb standard, dual sim, miui 8, nfc, ultra fast fingerprint sensor, excellent display, what's not to love? And for the price, this product is extremely competitive.

Kyle, South Africa. 13 October 2016

I must say I have be pleasantly surprised at how good this handset is. Dual sim is fantastic in South Africa and the battery life does not suffer for it. Build quality is excellent and the performance is excellent making my old S6 feel very slow. The only reason I have not given this handset 5/5 is due to the music player and lack of app draw however this is easily rectified by a third party player and utilizing folders. Would recommend it to anyone and I have also purchased another one for a family member.

gareth, South Africa. 29 June 2017

Brilliant phone for the price you pay. Fast, long-lasting and discreet quality feel. I have the google launcher applied and that fixes the awkward MiUI. Very surprised by this phone.

Johan, South Africa. 5 July 2016

We careful - Returning my second Mi5 as it does not work on MTN LTE. All calls go to voicemail

Ridhwaan, South Africa. 17 January 2017

Great phone. only 2 cons. the lack of an SD card and the placement of the power button.

Jeandre, South Africa. 15 May 2017

Great phone but is cheaper at Afrihost.

Richard, South Africa. 4 August 2016

No SD card is only downside. Great phone otherwise. Battery life better than most dual-SIM. It is a fast phone, so switching between apps is seamless. A good, well made, phone

Muhammad, South Africa. 4 August 2016

Works very well. You can set one sim as a data sim. I am using an MTN LTE Sim Card and I am getting very good (LTE) speeds. These phones now come with a transparent cover but still no screen protector. The battery lasts the whole day. I am very happy with the phone.

Dave, South Africa. 10 June 2016

Great phones but no covers available and no screen protectors....
If in the meantime, they have become available...please advise...

Brilliant., South Africa. 17 June 2016

Fantastic. Just needs some covers on the site.

Matthew, South Africa. 28 May 2016

the mi5 is one of the best smartphones in the world at the moment, making use of the snapdragon 820 it is immensely powerful and can be compared to the s7 and s7 edge in the performance category

Ferdinand, South Africa. 23 April 2017

A quick little summary.

I purchased the xiaomi mi5 about 4 months ago and I found the build quality and performance to be extremely good, given the price point. It has an excellent screen, very snappy, the camera is quite good in good light but falls short in low-light. Xiaomi isn't the quickest with software but it's running android 7.0 whereas the galaxy s7 range is still on 6.0 in South Africa.

The only negatives I found with the device is the 32GB of internal storage (about 26GB available) which isn't that much for power users, the lack of a black variant (only available in white) and that the device can be quite slippery and fragile (consider investing in a cover).

This is still a great device in 2017 especially with the drop in price. Sorry for any grammatical errors I may have made. Hopefully we will be able to get our hands on the xiaomi mi6 soon.
