Ortenca, 14 May 2019And i have the OS MIUI7. When i press check for updates, it says... moreIf you are not getting any update, chances are you are using a tampered rom. tampered roms are roms modified unofficially by unofficial distributors (not vendors or sellers). no worries dude, there is a definitive sollution, you just need to invest some time in flashing(installing) an official or unofficial rom.
you can try this tool and see for yourself:

Very good size and spec phone. only problem is MIUI, keep that on marshmallow MIUI 8.1.4, anything above for MIUI for mi5 is slow. otherwise just use lineage OS officially supported OS and that will be like new phone.

  • Ortenca

Problems with RAM. i am writing on messenger and i want to open the calculator. while i had opened a page on google browser before. in some cases randomly the messenger will just vanish while im writing. apps close automatically or work very very slow. sometimes i press something and i wait some seconds for it to open. if i press to open an app by mistake i start swearing. because i have to wait for it to open and then i press the close button and then have to wait for it to close again. its very annoying. i had these problems since i bought it new in july 2017. im going to get another phone. but i want to give this to my dad, thats why i was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to make it slightly better. my dad uses phones only for youtube and calls. anyone had this issue? any solutions? thanks

  • Ar9

Great phone for the money. I have been using it for 2 years and no major issues. It is becoming a bit old and may need to change, but overall is great.

  • ilkin

overheating too much and battery bad..

  • gabs

Amazing phone. Served me well for 3 years but now that the updates have stopped it has started randomly turning off and doing old-phone-stuff... Might have to switch soon.

  • Kishore

Worst customer service in india.
Authorised service centres don't know to find root cause of the issue.
For new mobiles they say fluid issue hence not covered in warranty
For mobiles out of warranty ( after 1 YEAR) , they tell its a mother board issue and need to replace mother board

Best phone ever i ever owned , its been like 3 years since using it , 2019 and still found Front camera is much better than Samsung s9 and one plus 6T , which are todays flagship phones , this phone is so good that i don't wanna switch to another phone, but well, played Xiomi , you gave update just to make the drainage of the battery , gonna switch to one plus 7 soon , i wish Xiomi has released Mi 9 in India.

anonymous, 06 Feb 2019hows the battery life & is it worth getting in 2019?I hardly get 4 hours of screen time. The battery drainage is very fast after miui 10 update. And also miui 10.2.2.0 was the last update for this beauty. Feeling sad for this. All things working good accept the battery performance.
