I have been using this phone since 2017 and still using it as a daily driver. Just installed custom ROM Android 10 since the official support only at Android 9. I think this is a model with a lot of custom ROMs available out there.

For those who wish to have custom ROM installed on this device, I would recommend to go for Pixel Experience ROM.

I have not installed on MiA1, but am using it for my old Moto G3 since 2018. It's a great experience for those used to vanilla Android.

Other ones can be CrDroid and Lineage OS.

Once I buy a new device, I am going to install custom ROM on this MiA1 of mine.

mcdavid, 27 Oct 2020Thanks. Do you recommend it? Any major issues?I have it since 2018 and it hasn't given me any issues it couldn't have for using it too much xD. Maybe, that the battery is too low for these specs. I recommend 4000mAh or higher.

mohan, 06 Oct 2020is a good phone Not a good phone anymore, no more security updates so it becomes an unsafe phone. Users should henceforth be wary of using it for banking and secure websites.

Anyhow, been complaining about the poor camera on this phone which was its only fault.

Will now give this phone away.

Have already bought a samsung a51 and has already been updated to security update sept 2020. My wifes samsung a8 from before the mi a1 is also still receiving security updates sept 2020.

Enjoyed this phone for 3 years. Android one is great for monthly security updates. As with any phone, there have been minor bugs and fixed. Very unfortunate that Xiaomi is discontinuing Android one. The security updates have stopped for mi a1 I'm afraid.. The Nokia with Android one does not meet my requirements. It hurts me to distance myself. A costum rom can extend the usability but it is not an android one. I already have enough phones with costum rom. By bootloader unlock you already sacrifice security. Too bad Xiaomi I will miss android one on your phones.

Peter, 24 Sep 2020Has Xiaomi stopped security updates now for the mi a1?Probably yes.
It's 3 years of release of this phone. As a part of Android One program, it is done with 3 years of support.

And no more Android One phones from Xiaomi.

I am soon switching to Pixel 4a or Nokia or iPhone SE.
