    1) Too early to say really, I doubt it will be up to the standard of the Redmi 3 though, as that is epic.

    2) So far I'm finding it good!

    3) Flawless on my unit

    4) Very very good, no complaints.

    5) Podcast is on hiatus for now, but never say never!

    6) I use this VPN and it's very good

    How is the speaker quality? 

    Well it's a single speaker on the bottom, so it isn't BOOMSOUND quality but it's pretty loud and decent!

    Hi Paul, 

    Hope you have spent some time with the new MI5 now. Few things I would like to find out - 

    1. Can you share how the camera is esp low light performance? I am using the LG G4 currently and its spectacular when it comes to camera so was wondering how do you rate this phone's camera? 

    2. If you import it from China, how easy is it to install the global ROM and install play store etc? Would OTA be a problem if you import?

    3. If its a Chinese import and requires root to install google services/English ROM? 

    4. Does good for enterprise work on this phone ? 

     

    Thanks
