    I'm afraid I've the same problem with my about two weeks old black Mi5 64GB.
    On Saturday morning got Ota update to dev miui ver 6.5.7 and in the evening phone screen got black, and just navigation buttons lights on. I tried to reboot my phone holding power button but phone didn't start up. Now I can't do anything.
    Win10 device manager discover mi5 as Qualcomm HS-USB QDLoader 9008 and MiFlash connect with it but I can't install any rom with MiFlash.
    Yesterday MiFlash hangs on with status "Missed hello packet, try to recover". Today something changed and MiFlash get status "Total error (0x8000ffff: Receiving hello packet)" and sometimes same error with more information: Przechwytywanie1.PNG
    I've described this problem on Polish Miui forum but as far I didn't get any working solution.
    Today another user get the same problem.
    I hope We'll find some working solution soon.

    probably they are slow to communicate. I already warned on official forum that we expect diagnostic on the affected devices. So far it is possible that all mi5 will suffer a very short life due to a defect. I was planning to upgrade my mi5 prime with a pro but I put that on hold for now. If my mi5 prime device fails the same I will ask for refund.
    Just wondering if affected devices used the QC 3.0 charger sold in the official package ...

    I didn't use original Mi5 charger and my Mi5 dead in about two weeks. So it's not because of QC 3.0 charge.

    OK. That s already a good info.
    In addition what rom did you used?

    I used latest china dev version 6.5.7 but I read posts other users who had same problem with stable version.
    I'm think it's rather caused by hardware then software.

    I used two sim before the black screen, anyone had the black screen with only one sim?
    Now with the new phone I can tell that the broken one at certain point had started to drain the battery much faster.

    I'm having an even weirder issue: when I power on the phone, MI logo shows up and boot run correctly. Once boot is complete, right before the home screen shows, the screen turns black and apparently there's no way to make it work again. The phone is still working, though: i can hear notification sounds and if I call my number it rings and vibrates.
    This happened with China stock stable ROM.
    I tried to factory reset wipe and flash a new rom (Global): nothing changed, same issue.
    Any ideas?

    You see logo means display is working, you heard sound means the hardware is working. Most likely a Rom related issue

    It actually was. I full wiped the phone and flashed The CyanogenMod 13. Phone is working like a beast, performances and battery life improved significantly. Tried to flash different version of Miui 7 but the problem was still there. Maybe I'll try Miui 8 or another Rom some day, but Cyano is working great

    Know that rom tailored to specific hardware. You need Rom that is specific to the phone

    Maybe using the engineering cable that can be used for flashing locked bootloaders could help.

    By the way, are the issues coming from unlocked BL only?

    Hello everyone, just used my Mi5 for 13 days and the phone turned off and cannot be turned on anymore.

    Tried to charge it, plugged into computer, pressed the power button and volume up button but no response whatsoever.

    The battery was hot while charging but no response.

    Any solutions?

    Thanks.

    Yesterday when I first tried it on my laptop, it detected something, it was unstable/on and off, did not end up getting access to the phone at all. Today, there's just nothing happening when plugged into PC.

    This is software related due to boot.img. Reflash your phone using the flash tool with proper rom .
