Xiaomi Mi A2 will be company's first Android One phone to get Pie

17 December 2018
The Mi A2 saw limited rollout for Android 9 in mid-November, but the rollout begins in earnest tomorrow. No official word on Mi A2 Lite or Mi A1.

Sort by:

The Pocophone got it faster.

It's as if Xiaomi is deliberately SABOTAGING its Android One phones to make the MIUI phones - the ones they can put in ads and preinstalled app bundles for extra $$$ - more attractive.

Damn.

At first I thought that there's a mistake in the title but as I went through the article it was right! I've using this phone for about 2 months now and I literally regret buying it! This phone is not recommended at all to anyone. I'll tell you all the problems existing even after December 05 security update on Android Pie.
Problems:
1) Auto-brightness sensor is terrible, it stays dim all the time (this is the first phone in my life on which I have turned off the auto brightness)
2) Proximity sensor is also bad, screen keeps on turning on and off while calling (sometimes flash turns on accidentally by the ears touching the screen)
3) Haptic Feedback has a very high intensity, there's no to control its intensity, just pressing any of the navigation button will vibrate the entire phone.
4) There's no customization option in the default launcher, so I had to switch to Nova Prime Launcher as I had to hide apps.
5) I don't have any idea why this phone hangs sometimes (for 1-2 minutes complete freezing) atleast once in every 2 or 3 days even after having SD660!
6) Photos do come out to be great but video quality is definitely below average, it tries to stabilise the video but then the details are completely lost while EIS is under operation!
7) Camera bump is too much, bezels are also too thick on top and bottom!
