A few days ago, Xiaomi announced it had completed the Mi A1 Android Oreo roll-out. The update which had been suspended twice due to bugs was finally getting a third roll-out.
Not only was it bringing Android Oreo, it also included January’s security patch, and fixes for the bugs from the last two versions. Sadly, this update also comes with its own bugs including a battery drain that affects a lot of folks.
In our post covering the update, a number of people complained about a battery drain that began after the update. There is also a poll on c.mi.com where nearly 83% of those who took the poll complained of the battery drain.
It is sad to see that Xiaomi can’t seem to get things right with its Mi A1 Oreo update. After three attempts, one would think things would be properly done but unfortunately, that isn’t the case.
Some other users have also reported that the device hangs, restarts while calling, and has heating issues.
Xiaomi has not yet released an official statement regarding the new bugs. We advise you suspend updating your device if you haven’t done so yet until a fix is available.
