AnonD-908380, 11 Mar 2020Xiaomi still hasn't updated the Redmi Note 7 and 8 to Android 10... moreRedmi note 7 and 8 is not Android One. They are Miui 11 on android 9. The fact that they get any update at all is already a bonus. Even my Redmi note 5 AI dual cam have android 9 Miui 11 on it. For the money it have got more updates i have ever got from branded phones like Samsung, LG or Nokia. Actually on Nokia i had more updates but that was windows phone. On low end all these brands like samsung, Sony, LG and so on be lucky if they even get only 1 update for even security.

Ijas, 11 Mar 2020LOL.. Got a new reason right.. @HMD.. due to covid-19, don't you... moreI feel you, I have Nokia 8. The first flagship and the one that's left behind, because it's not in the Android One program, unlike 8 Sirocco, which has same specs.

Regardless of the Android version, their software is full of issues dating over three years back. Some things never change, and a virus is not the reason of terrible software support when it comes to Xiaomi...

Love the Community, 11 Mar 2020Wow. So much disrespect here and it's a stark difference compari... morePlease, get a hold of yourself there. You seem to be imagining things, because HMD has in fact the worst track in regards of stable updates, even tho they are using Android One lol.

I"m developing part of my work at home. Some friends do it full time due to the restrictions so they now are allowed to do it at home and sync it with the project software. Other works need you to stay at the office but the software don't require it you can also attend the meetings by video call. So this smells more like an excuse due to previous delays.

Sad news, I was waiting for Android 10 on the Nokia 5.1 Plus. It should have arrived this month.

Wow. So much disrespect here and it's a stark difference comparing to the universal love they got in 2017. HMD Nokia has gotten the best software programmers money can buy. They're dedicated to create stable updates for all of their phones that has a lifespan of 2 major updates. These guys deserve a break and safety. You guys don't know talent when you see one.

All Android phones from Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Huawei etc get updates. Just you can't. HMD-Nokia epic fail.

So the Android One program is just a marketing gimmick. Many Xiaomi phones were updated already and they're at the heart of this situation. I do not buy that HMD, they ruined Nokia again.

If anyone is believing this rubbish then more fool you, it's HMD using this as an excuse.

It has nothing to do with it though.

Good decision HMD. Prevention is always better regarding safety.

LOL.. Got a new reason right.. @HMD.. due to covid-19, don't you guys feel ashamed.. You haven't released the update for Nokia 9 (your PREMIUM category phone with a bunch of useless camera), which was promised to be given by Q4 2019.. Now you are blaming covid-19 for this one.. Great.. Can you guys just do one thing change, please use some other brand names, just because of the brand name Nokia I have purchased Nokia 9 Pureview.. It really feels like we are cheated with the brand name..
