After 3 weeks of usage, I came up with 2 big problems with this phone:
1. The camera lacks stabilization, which is still missing after the latest October update. Both cameras perform badly in dim environments, even in the lavatory or my own bedroom, the framerates are poor with videos and often come with blurry images. Be aware if you take a lot of photos at night or indoors.
2. The microphone has horrible audio quality. Even when I place it 5cm to my mouth, the audio is still not clear due to poor noise cancelling system. Audio lacks clearness and feels cheap too, but most likely to be able to get solved with software updates. Just do it, Xiaomi.
Anonymous, 14 Oct 2017Latest update gives MiA1 the EIS everyone asking for, just go to the video editor to stabilize... moreStill no EIS so far here on the Hong Kong model, even after the latest 100M October patch.
is it EIS implemented in this phone after update guys? i ever heard this
Let me make it clear to everyone, This phone has confirmed upgrades till September 5, 2019 and also to be extended as it is Android One and Regardless of size and name each and every Mi A1 device will get the same updates without any deviation.
Also everyone update the in-built apps too. Except the below 5 apps(Download another Contacts App by Google) All will receive updates on Mi A1.
Note : The in-built Contact App has no updates, but you can download Contacts App by Google from Play Store which will be regularly updated.

MYK0007, 19 Oct 2017But I am already on sep security patch why did I got 1060.5mb update?Try write a inquiry to Google ask them to give you a full 50 pages report on why there are 1059MB of update, are there trying to spy on you ... lol
Jokes aside, there are user claim there have 2 update when there bought the phone, so the 1059MB could be just one of the September update, anyway i just update it, if i would to waste my time on such petty issue i would have no time for more important things in life.

KGNTSTNY, 19 Oct 2017Anybody has this problem with Do Not Disturb function?
I set a Time rule, thou it activate... moreI think it is the problem of a certain app that has permissions to change do not disturb mode. Like the third party app silent mode.
If that's not the case, try recreate automatic rules.
