Its my pleasure GSMArena to give you information for Android 10 update on Xiaomi A3 (India). Thanks a lot for reading my email and mention in that post. And by the way after updating to Android 10 my phone is working good.

    Well that's weird, updated my MI A3 to android 10 last few days ago and it's been working fine so far. Tho i am using it as a secondary phone but still it is very responsive just like before.

        Typical Xiaomi - no quality control at all.

          Meanwhile all Nokia 2019 phones already got their Android 10 updates, and then there is Xiaomi.

Oneplus' has no say on what Xiaomi's Android version should be nor Xiaomi is obliged to follow what Oneplus does. They did not violate any Google laws/agreement by releasing Mi Note 10 with Android 9 on the 4th quarter of 2019. IF you think that Xiaomi is violating the OS agreement, report them to Google if you have concrete basis on your concern, in which you don't have. Thinking that Xiaomi should operate like OP is already a wrong premise, they're different company after all. IF you want Oneplus support, then buy a Oneplus phone, easy.

                Xiaomi update for Android One phone has always been try & error, it has been since 2017 when there launch MiA1, many would have remember the Oreo update on 31st Dec 2017, a total disaster & it took them 6 months to have it rectify.

                I doubt that there would be a MiA4

                  DroidBoye, 03 Mar 2020Google only enforced the Android 10 as starter OS on 2020. ... moreFor context, Mi Note 10 was announced (and released) in November '19, OOTB it had Android 9.

                  OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro were announced and sold two months BEFORE the Mi Note 10 (September '19), and they *still* both came with Android 10 out of the box.

                  What's Xiaomi's excuse, then?

                    The way Xiaomi has handled updates for its One series phones has been a disaster. Looks like they've allocated an absolute minimum number of developers to handle updates and everything.

                              Xiaomi is REALLY working hard to make Stock Android LOOK BAD and prop up their ad-ridden MIUI phones.

                              Notice how practically NONE of their MIUI-based Android 10 updates have been pulled back, how many more MIUI phones got Android 10 before Mi A3, and how other OEM updates to Android 10 such as from Nokia, OnePlus, and even Samsung didn't result in such widespread issues.

                                People buying cheap smartphones and expecting high quality stuff. Now here's your freaking high-quality update you donkey.

                                  Xiaomi just gives a sample update for those update zombies that asks and even threatens the company in the forums because of not releasing the update early. Goodluck rolling that back.

                                      This is a frequent occurrence with Android One devices, because phone-makers are very much constrained by AndriodOne requirements and don't have the full control of the update process. There is no need for Xiaomi to participate in AndroidOne, and a simple solution for Xiaomi is to exit AndriodOne project completely.

                                        Anonymous, 02 Mar 2020Based on my experience with the Mi Note 10, Xiaomi is not u... moreI also want to get that phone. I realised that is not complete device and cost more than 400 euros. Soc is very important for every segment,also for camera support. Its not normal to put 108 mp new sensor coupled with 730g,which is only good for usual tasks.
