Xiaomi Mi A1 review

12 October 2017
With the Xiaomi Mi 5X confined to the domestic Chinese market soon after launch, its double, the Mi A1, is called upon to boost the brand's global presence. Steered by Google, Android One is full of potential and Xiaomi's looking keen on getting its message across a wider audience and, of course, making some profit in the process with the Mi A1.

What is problem

  • Manab

I'm using Andr8.1.0 Nov18, REFUSED Andr9 till date (Aug19 upd). The latter has AWFUL UI

Using the supplied 20W Charger of Xiaomi, the Charging current is 1950 mA till Battery at 4.375V, ~82%.
GSMArena review (old) is WRONG. I get 71% charged (Actually) in 1 hour, not 30% as reviewed.

Does Mi A1 gonna have an update of Android 10?

If that's the case than what you see is glue. Xiaomi is using low quality glue (adhesive) for their screens and sometimes if your phone gets warm (and it will in summer when playing games) heat will affect glue. I don't know if that permanently damages display but according to people from the Internet easiest solution is to replace display. Unfortunately I had that issue on my 2 Xiaomi phones: Redmi 2 Prime/Pro and Mi A1.
