the battery is so poor, i replaced it after one year of usage, and the replaced battery also got swelled, in addition the phone gets heated every time when charging. i don't think any replaced battery would last which is a total waste of money.

I can't charge my phone since the latest update, it charge so slow and now it can't even turned on. Is there any bug or something?

Has anyone's device been charging very slow lately? Mine is on the August Patch, complete stock and the time to charge from 30% to 100% has increased a lot. i mean it took 90mins to go from 30% to 90%

As good as this phone was and still is, after using a newer 6mon old phone of a different brand I can easily say the reception of the MiA1 is one of it's only poor points.

Even I am looking for above two options. iPhone is also on mind.

However, Mi A1 have never disappointed me. It would be 3 years that I am using this phone. And probably August patch is the last one in the line with no other update in future.

However, I will continue to use Mi A1 as an experiment phone and would flash it with custom ROMs for latest Android iterations.

I replaced my battery on 2nd year & I use on screen lock button & volume button (so I hardly use the physical button) experience from Xiaomi phone I used previously where the physical button tense to wear off within 2-3 years.

My Mi A1 is going to complete three years in about 30 days time.
Battery, power and volume switches are troubling now.
Waited for an Android One from Xiaomi but they have disappointed by discontinuing Android One program. So bye to Xiaomi as I have decided to look for pure Android experience elsewhere .. from other manufacturers.
Any suggestions.

I have a spare Moto G3 phone where I use custom ROMs. I change its ROM every week.

Once a buy a new phone, even MiA1 of mine will be up for custom ROMs.

However, for regular usage I still prefer Pure Android. No nonsense and I get my stuff done without the need for any additional features in terms of software.

This is a huge problem when coupled with delayed software updates. More than half of the time you are spending on updating the Samsung apps which you cannot delete, which are occupying the space and are actually duplicating the functions already available on Google apps.

That's why I prefer Pure Android OS phones.
