I have Mi 8 (Global Version) with just updated to MIUI 11.0.6, but STILL with Android 9.
So the article title is quite wrong, or mention it that is valid only for China region.

I dont care about what Sony may or may not do but only what they actually end up doing..
I am not a big Xiaomi or Huawei fan, but at least they give most of their higher end phones 2 Android updates and security updates for 2 years.

Hilmawan, 28 Oct 2019As a former Sony user from the K750i to the Xperia Z5 i can... moreWorst in updates in what particular way?
If Sony's update system is really the worst, then how can I classify Samsung or Xiaomi's update system? WORST OF THE WORST?!

They do provide the options to turn off the ads, but they're not really doing their jobs. All I get is a toggle to turn off the personalization of ads, not completely disabling them.
I open the Music app and every single f***in time that there's an internet connection, a random ad would pop up.
It's as if it's already part of its nature to do it.

I may not have enough knowledge about turning off the ads on my phone, but in the first place, why should I do it?
Isn't it supposed to be Xiaomi software developers' team's duty to get rid of them completely before releasing the product to the public?
And if you're going to tell me that it'll be a good source of income for them, then what's the f***in point of having the ability to disable them completely and get absolutely no profit at all from those random ads?
You may not know the answer, but that's a question for you to think about.

I know you're simply talking sh*t right here. The fact that you're saying that Sony has a poor software support, when they have been excelling here for years is already a big loss of credibility to what you are saying.
I know many Xperia users who never, not even once, have ever complained about the software support from Sony.
They always get the promised 2-year support for flagships and 1-year OS upgrade for mid range and budget devices.
High price point of their products ensure that there's absolute NO ADS, fast and stable updates, and a very long-lasting high quality product.
I'm impressed by Xiaomi's ability to offer such hardware for reasonable price, but quality wise, you should NEVER, and I mean EVER, compare them to Japan's "world-class" quality products from Sony.
Perhaps they're not doing well right now, but once they get things right, it's already a game-over for everyone else.

Don't care for MIUI updates. I always look forward to them, but I end up getting disappointed either way.
Minor changes in the appearance here and there, but functionality remains the same.
And problems related to software are often left out.
Android Oreo is supposed to bring an unlocked camera 2 api for any Android phone running it, but Xiaomi's greediness didn't even provide any proper manual controls for my phone.
I know it's just a cheap phone, but it's still a big bummer to many. It's as if having an unlocked API costed Xiaomi that much money.
And I don't really care anymore. I'm gonna throw my phone into the trash bin where it belongs by next year, and I'm going to get a non-Chinese brand smartphone that could offer the quality product that I'm looking for.
The only reason I bought a Xiaomi phone is because I trusted people's voices, saying that their phones are excellent quality despite the low price. Perhaps this will be the last mistake that I'd ever commit in my technology life.

Okay, I get it.

Vulnerability found in Xiaomi phones' pre-installed security app

Shanti Dope, 28 Oct 20191 - Sony is ready to update their XZ2/XZ3 lineup to Android... moreAs a former Sony user from the K750i to the Xperia Z5 i can tell that Sony is one of the worst in terms of updates.

Xiaomi phones in the default state do have ads, but they provide the option to turn them off in settings.

Most people who keep talk $#it about ads on Xiaomi phones usually not smart enough to turn it off or people who have never used a Xiaomi phones.

Phones with good specifications, low prices and ads that can be turned off + great support are far better than Sony phones that provide poor support.

And did you know that Xiaomi has just announced they will provide MIUI 11 updates for their entry level and miid range phones that are almost 3 years old (Redmi 5a and Redmi Note 4) It might not be the same as Apple but the price of Xiaomi phones is much cheaper and they are able to provide better support than most other well-known brands.
