Pabliell, 31 Dec 2017Shouldn't the Android One Project be like the good old Nexus series? Getting newest Android re... moreAndroid One is just a project. Nexus is Google's main product.
On Android One, the manufacturer of that kind of phone can release updates much faster (much more like the Google Play Edition in the past). Nexus, on the other hand, is made by Google, so every single updates are really quick to it because it is handled by Google and they're the one releasing updates to the phone.
On the Mi A1, Xiaomi is the one in charge of updating the phone. Google only sends it to Xiaomi for them to release it to the Android One phone.
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2017Too late. So much for Android One. My footAt least this update wasn't intended to slow the phone down *ehem*
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2017So why NOT Sony??Because basically, their phones are near stock already.
And they're the only Android OEM with a somewhat heavy skin on top of Android yet still releases updates quickly.
My main reason for wanting Android One version of every Android flagship smartphones other than Sony is for faster updates. Just look at how much Samsung is struggling to release Oreo on their main flagship.
At CES 2018, Sony will announce the Xperia XA2 series with Android 8.0 Oreo while the Note 8 will just start receiving the update (with not really too much changes or improvements).

Anonymous, 31 Dec 2017Only selected unit, my still no Prep update, so Xiaomi broke there promise as far as I concerned.As Xiaomi is pushing the update, they are processing it by batch by batch. even i didn't received the update, wait it will come to every device within a couple of days.
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2017The update is from Google, not Xiaomi.As of my knowledge, Google build the update and Xiaomi pushes OTA's

Update are in batches, some user will get in next few hours while some in next few days.
It's been almost a day since I got the Oreo update. Too early to tell, but the experience is a mixed bag. Though there are subtle welcome changes, I am yet to enjoy the features, such as Picture-in-Picture. It simply doesn't work for me. I verified that YouTube is in the list for this feature, but can't get it work. The Recent Apps list didn't get populated. Had to restart the phone two times. It's working now. And, finally, apps take a wee bit more time to load.
in new update there is some calling issue.
i have a jio sim..but with that i can't call..i have 2 restart phone after some time.
AnonD-843, 31 Dec 2017Dont teach me and im not high. I previously owned a mi4i and my sister owns redmi 3s prime. Yo... moreWhat can I say... Their entire mi line since mi4c is running nougat. You pulled the short stick with that Indian only model and the Redmi 3s is a 100$ device. Getting miui updates is already overkill for this price.
lots of issues-
1- sound output reduced drastically
2- pip does not work properly
3- no icone shape change option in launcher settings
4- lots of ui bugs here and there
and all that after a month long beta testing
Good job google and xiaomi

Anonymous, 31 Dec 2017So why NOT Sony??They already had oreo even before pixel . And the skin is light and almost stock like with some useful added feature.
With oreo it charges little faster but can't be called fast charging.
Wrong report.as I am from Kolkata having mi A1,I did not receive any update.then how the update is available all over INDIA.

I previously owned a mi4i and my sister owns redmi 3s prime. You might be talking abt miui updates. Its just cosmetic changes and also made my mi4i hell. Check miui forums to see the bugs camera focus issue, heating issue, folder animation lags, and not even a single android update
I have stopped updating after miui7. Everything gets worse after that. Then whats the use of so called updates.

Are you drunk or have been smoking something? They offer the best updates out of all manufacturers. Even their 5 year old phones are still getting latest updates and their updates are weekly.
