The I tried to fix the problem by installing custom ROM, long story short, it didn't work.
Then I had a thought about the firmware (my phone became problematic since the newest firmware 12.5.0 update), maybe the firmware is the culprit. I flashed the EU latest firmware AND EU ROM (you will need both) to replace the latest GLOBAL firmware and ROM.

And now the problem is gone.


after update of android 11 google play service is not working , great problem facing

My phone has several faults. If the other party doesn’t pick up within 8 seconds, it hangs up. It also hangs up automatically after exactly 15 mins. I also get no sound from any Bluetooth earphones/headphones even though it says they are fully connected. As well, most calls are garbled as the other party can’t hear what I’m saying. The phone also can’t seem to handle Android 11. It’s laggy and the screen stutters when scrolling. I finally gave up with it and bought an iPhone 12 mini.

Sad story here.
After the last update to Android 11 (I think?) the phone became heating up like a kettle. It had passed after a while. Yesterday I was watching a show in my bed on All 4 app (it was Malcom In The Middle, if interested) before going to sleep when my phone suddenly froze and none of the system buttons would work, so I pushed the switch button to shut it down and then back up, but it never awoke. Since then it's been a brick. I took the back lid off (took me good 20 minutes with my wife's hairdryer) just to discover that the battery and all seemed ok. The screen was ok as well because after the update the booting process was concluded by the sound so I would hear it if the phone booted up with no display working.
So now it's dead and I think this time I will order something else but Xiaomi.

The bottom line - I think the update was killing my phone for a couple of months until it breathed its last byte on my hands.

This is such a great phone because of the compact size and near flagship specs. If only Xiaomi didn't kill this line ;(

A good phone indeed, small and light. Using this for almost two years but only recently the phone reboot by itself, and sometimes turned off on its own. Even after factory reset, still having the same issue. Anyone encountered this before, or know how to solve this?

  • Ex-flagship Lover

what a shame, this is not flagship phone... Do not discard memory card slot and earphone jack or people won't buy it!!!

Does anyone here install gcam for mi 9 se (miui 12.5)?

  • Phoneboi

Such a great device. I love the amoled, the camera is very good, miui 12.5 has improved night photos a lot but most of all I love the compact size and light weight.

I also have Mi10T which I use for gaming only. And tbh I prefer much prefer the amoled vs the hrr LCD. GSM arena will tell you how great the Mi 10T hrr LCD screen is, but I must disagree. I will only buy amoled now.

Truedroid, 06 Jul 2021How about the last update? Is it cost to update? 12.5 runs flawlessly for me (global).

I've had this phone for over 2 years now and love it: the pictures, the quality, the size... Unfortunately I broke the screen and had to replace it. Since then, the battery has been lasting less and less. It dies on me every time I have video calls. Any suggestions on how to fix this? I wouldn't like to change phones as I can't find one at this size as good as Mi9 SE :(
Thanks for any help.

It's not a big deal to casual user. Battery life is the same and I haven't noticed any decrease/increase with time or Android update. Display overclock mod works only on Android 9 as I'm aware that doesn't have newer MIUI.
