Guys, Don't compare Nokia Updates with Xiaomi Updates,
Nokia has just 4 phones, so releasing updates won't be tough.
But Xiaomi has promised updates to over a 100 different models, they have to tailor the same update to suit each model. Plus providing update is not easy as we think. Before public release, they will test the update on a device, to see how it works, how it behaves, It is not that simple as we think. A single miscalculation in updates could brick the phones and also at the same time they work on the MIUI too.
So, Don't judge Xiaomi as slow in terms of updates. Nokia has just 4 phones to update,But Xiaomi has more. The process is very complicated and unpredictable.

But mysteriously they're not getting updates, they may be updated in Oreo. I think.
AnonD-709190, 19 Oct 2017Still no EIS so far here on the Hong Kong model, even after the latest 100M October patch.Let me spoon feed you.
Then watch the video
Tap the edit function (aka the one with few line that looks like those amplifier adjust)
Then save the stabalized version.
You can also do the post video stabalizing edit in Google Photo Apps.

MiA1 is pure Android except the camera UI (as Google has no camera UI for dual camera just yet).
There are 2 contact apps, for me i prefer the more simple one which is the light blue version, some people might like the newer dark blue version, that's the beauty of Pure Android, you get to choose what you want in your phone, rather than those crap MiUi, Touch Wizz, Sense UI, which forced you to use whatever there give.
AnonD-702898, 19 Oct 2017is it EIS implemented in this phone after update guys? i ever heard thisYes ! EIS already include in previous update, all you need to do is to go to edit mode & stabilize the video.
Unlike OIS which is actually a stabalizer while taking the video, EIS is more of a post video stabalizing software.
Hope this help.

Click on the three dots (on the top right side) and select "Show internal storage". After that open the menu under storage and select your phone's internal storage.
AnonD-702898, 19 Oct 2017is it EIS implemented in this phone after update guys? i ever heard thisNo. I went through every single update, even after the 1 October patch still no EIS and camera app is just a piece of crap. Hate it so much right now.

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.

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.
