Lumina, 06 Dec 2017This is why i stopped buying Xiaomis and instead go for other brands (Mainly still Samsung tho... moreXiaomi is a crap chinese company selling spyware phones at a cheap price by luring people. Oppo, Vivo, Oneplus etc are all suspects.
As promised Xiaomi released Orea update within this year. Off-course they called to signup for Beta Testers(till not released). i bought the device thought of getting update very fast as it is google pet project. Other brands already pushed the orea update. And only couple of week left for this year. Now they called for beta testing program also no kernal source till now. Wasted my money on this phone.

If you go on MIUI forum you can there are so many... moreThis is why i stopped buying Xiaomis and instead go for other brands (Mainly still Samsung tho) because they have tons of features even without rooting and their ROM just works.

GSMarena why you are posting only good news. If you go on MIUI forum you can there are so many users stuck with buggy roms. and Most selling devices are ignored by this ignorant company i.e. redmi 3s and note 3 in case of android upgrades. This company never make list of android upgrade plans. This company more and more is getting like other companies, moneater.
Lol, just be grateful it gets updated quite fast and is promised to get updated until Android P.
You want day 1 timely update? Pay more, get a Pixel. Android One is not Pixel or Nexus. Where else you can get promise like this for cheap and almost stock android phone?
I would rather MiA1 not to update Oreo 8.0 until is fully bugs free, the November Patch update recently actually cause more problems,
GPS signal issue (Can't log in position & GPS signal fluctuate)
3G & 4G phone signal issues (keep switching between 3G & 4G)
Lower battery life (SOT 5hr to 4hr)
I guess Xiaomi received many complaints which is why there delay the update & have Beta testers to rectify issue before the stable update.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2017Why Android One phones dont run 8 already? Sony and Htc have flagships with 8.0 You gave the answer youself, the phone currently receiving android oreo are all flagship devices and xiaomi mi A1 is a budget oriented device and at the launch event, Xiaomi and google said that this device will surely receive oreo update within 2017, and i don't think that 2017 has ended, so keep patience and wait for it. If it is not delivered before 31st dec 2017, only then complain about it
More secure, less buggy, less bloated, less laggy, less use of ram - overall smother, safer, better in every way shape and form possible.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2017Why Android One phones dont run 8 already? Sony and Htc have flagships with 8.0 Because android one is not a flagship device.. It's a budget device. Pixel is a flagship device.
Ajax Francis, 05 Dec 2017Exactly my thought. What's the point of Android One if it receives Oreo this late.The whole concept of Android One was to get software support directly from Google but time and again, it is seen that the devices eventually get those updates not as quick as expected like Nexus or Pixel. So yeah, wait and it should be there soon.

It's a joke that this phone doesn't even have oreo yet
So much going for android one and fast updates
They complain slot about skins, and when they launch it with stock Android, updates take even longer
