Xiaomi Mi5 specs listed on a third-party e-Store

The price tag is a bit steep for Xiaomi. I guess you can't complain about the price tag when they jam all that goodies in a phone. It should be a pretty good phone nonetheless.

The price tag is almost definitely a placeholder for Oppomart. Unless, of course, Xiaomi is taking the same course as Nexus.

The price tag is usually higher on third party websites.. If it does turn out to be true, we can expect the actual price (sold directly by Xiaomi) to be at least $50 lower!

yeah if u compare to other devices of the same spec the price tag is not steep, but xiaomi will be very competitive in pricing

It didn't show its true face. It's just starting to push out high-end spec phone.

Most (if not all) Chinese phones have s**t batterlife. Even with large batteries, they give less endurance. They don't have the expertise to properly optimize the devices.

I thought Xiaomi would make their phone a more cheaper ..
bit 550$ is a way much more higher price :/ ..
And also i thought it would be 20 megapixel camera only 16 and SD 805 it has been old .. better buy huwaei ph .. or lg g3 in that price here ..

I think it will cost 2499 yuan for 16gb (402usd).

Look at that price tho.
Isn't Xiaomi known for cheap phones = quality phones? This is a step backwards.
Xiaomi should not be taking the Nexus 6 route.

If you go to the website of coolicool.com and search for Xiaomi mi5, you get to see the phone and what it is about incl. a movie clip of the phone and you can pre-order it even there for $499 I believe. Now which one is more correct about the phone and price, this page here or the seller coolicool

Is there no way to get this phone to work in the US? I saw this article on Android Headlines where the author is using the Mi4 on T-Mobile, but I don't quite understand what WDCMA variety on the Mi4 means.
