By your thinking Xiaomi could have released it with Android 1, updated to Nougat next day and called it 9 years of support.

Finally I had it with MiA1 let it retired gracefully, the gps really useless, constantly losing signals & slow, many times it can't even log into position, got myself a Samsung & the GPS worked perfectly, no more Xiaomi for me.

Anyway is 3 years budget phone & it's time to move on.

You should be thankful since the phone still gets monthly security patch, no other phone will give such long term updates.

We were cheated on and given only one year of android version upgrades instead of two. Imagine what would happen if I stopped paying for my phone after paying only half the price. Why are big companies allowed this without consequences? Why nobody run an article about it?
Don't buy Xiaomi and spread word about what they did.

Android 10 came within 2 years. So where is the update? Instead of 2 years of promised updates we got only one. How about next time Xiaomi release phone with two versions old Android, then update it next day to current and call it a day because 'you got your two major updates'.
