Bought it a month after release. Still using it (30.11.2021). Sad about not getting MIUI 11. I've dropped it several times, which caused NFC malfunction. Other than that, great phone camera is better than some new models. As an addition, even tho it has two "speaker spaces" only one work (at full capacity = not stereo. But stereo works on headphones/earphones) later I found out that it is common defect in Xiaomi. Why? No idea)

it is actually degradable to android 8, great phone, still have it and it's flying, battery lasts for around 2-3 days depending on load. I use 2 SIMs, one for work and the other private. When I use it for android auto navigation, playing music and using Bluetooth plus data connections at the same time while driving, then it gets hot and the system is getting slow, otherwise very good.

I wanted to record a longer video -- first, I have to say I upgraded to LineAgeOS, latest version.
When I recorded the video, I found out that only 27 minutes were recorded, which was a 4 GB file. I wish I could have recorded longer.
I am still searching for any option anywhere, where I can say "record video for very long time". Otherwise after 27 minutes the video recording stops.

[deleted post]If you use MIUI on Mi 5s, the fingerprint sensor is bad.

Pixel Experience rom for this Mi 5s now available in Android 10.

Well, i still use mi5s now 😂, i use pe rom pact 5 july 2019 and I think this best rom for me. I just changed my battery few week ago with vizz battery and sot in pe 5-6 hours

Well, I had changed my phone to iPhone 6, so no longer use Xiaomi Mi 5s, this group also become silent. People are prefer new phone or better welknown phones.

Said that, in the news, Xiaomi Mi 5s will receive MIUI 11 update in somewhere November. Let's wait and see for who still uses Mi 5s.

Several days ago I updated my phone to Pixel Experience rom patch September security. Nothing change in icon, menu apps and option. All work fine.

Nine months of use now. Till now the phone is still works great.

Well, updated apps I guess need more RAM. So, I think, my next Android smartphone should has 6 GB RAM minimal.

New update of Pixel Experience rom is available on pixelexperience.org. It is based on August 2019 security patch. My phone had updated several hours ago. No problem so far and no new option I found.

I did update using OTA. Using custom rom in Xiaomi so far is better choice for me when you use less than 4 GB of RAM Xiaomi phone. This Pixel Experience rom is better in frequently update compared to MIUI stock rom.

Still using it, with Pixel Experience rom patch July 2019, Android Pie software, works very well so far, unlock fingerprint also works quite fast. I will say, unlock fingerprint using Pixel Experience rom is faster that stock rom MIUI.

MIUI keep updated by them I think doesn't solve problems. So, using custom rom usually is better option than MIUI. If users would like to keep using MIUI, I guess better keep stay in MIUI (Marshmallow).
