Thank you Xiaomi. Mine got 12.5 yesterday. It looks fresh. Not so much change but it nice to get an update.

Got mine weeks ago.
Battery drain (as expected on every major update)
Planning to factory reset, to start fresh with android 11. Although everyone else is already waiting for 12. Hahahaha

I went back to 12 right away on my Mi 9 SE. I've been tracking the issue on Xiaomi.EU, but it doesn't appear to be resolved yet.

dbjungle, 05 Jun 2021That's not true. 3 other phones I have running Androi... moreWell, damn. Let's hope they fix it. The stock launcher isn't that bad but I sure miss Nova.

pufanu, 05 Jun 2021Unfortunately, that's and an Android 11 limitation, no... moreThat's not true. 3 other phones I have running Android 11 do not have this limitation: Google Pixel 4a, Realme Q3 Pro and Xiaomi Mi 8 SE (running Pixel Experience custom ROM). It's MIUI 12.5 on Android 11 specifically.

One week late. I tiped GSM arena but they didnt Care. They like headphones more

Hopefully you can use full screen gestures with custom launchers now. Last time I tried you couldn't on MIUI 12.5.
