That's becouse samsung kind of copied xiaomi's mi note designe and Mi5 is following this design language. But the home button clearly resemble samsung. I personally like the design but I understand some people would like their phone to distinguish and not have this samsung like button. It's weird that xiaomi went for this shape.

Mi note itself is a copy of the note series, hence the name. Also, mi note looks no where like the note 5 or s6 edge. Mi note looks like a note 4 to me more than any other samsung phones

Only with naming and screen size.
How you can't see that curved glass and shape of metal frame of the Note 5 has been same with Mi Note?
You can't see how Note 5 looks like Mi Note, but Mi Note looks like Note 4 to you. What are you smokin?

maybe they just want to avoid patent troll's at US o.O
btw cant they use bigger battery? since they can put 4000mAh inside their low-end phone :-/

they should've put the fingerprint scanner on the back, otherwise it's stunning.

It looks exactly like an s6 edge. Why do these chinese companies have to copy everyone?

Go get some glasses, it has some features that look like it but that's it. It looks even slightly better

Really looks like a sammy phone, maybe they should put finger print scanner on the back just like they did on redmi note 3

It's beautiful. It's gonna be packed with a good hardware.
Most of people wouldn't care if it reminds either a Samsung or Apple phone as long as its price has been half of those phones' price. BTW Mi Note predates Note 5.
Xiaomi's game isn't about being absolute best or being unique. It's about being only/best choice at undeniably lower cost.

It's not a real world prototype, it's photoshopped Mi Note.

Wow, what a disappointment. A straight up copy of the Galaxy Note and expensive. Was looking forward to this phone, but will wait for ZTE NUBIA Z11.

Note 5 resembles Mi Note Pro which was announced a long time before the N5.
