I ... moreit took me more than 30 seconds to lock to GPS, this is in City Centre where I get 4G all the time, sometimes the GPS simply doesn't lock even driving for more than 10 minutes, I tried all methods, reboot, go under open sky, change Telco some catd, I ask the SC, there told me all lot of people is complaining the same issue, is the software problem,ask me patiently wait for new update, this issue happened since November 2017 & still can't be solved despite few security patch update.
Stock Android in Xiaomi are totally rubbish, only suitable for kids who like to brag that there have the latest software without realizing is full of bugs.
Pixel phone are no better by looking at the amount of complain from user.
Touch Wizz is 1000X better than Rubbish Stock Android.
After Oreo update the phone has been battery draining phone. Gets hot for no rhyme and reason. Need fixes.
I bought this phone 2 February 2018 and i think Mi A1 is a great product and value for money

I miss fm software too, despite having hardware support.
And dont complain about other things if you dont know what Stock Android is all about.
This is my 1st stock android device and im having quality time operating it.
m-p-3, 22 Feb 2018Because of the price, size, and I do not like TouchWiz.New Touch Wizz UI are very close to Stock Android & you can customize it to look like the older version of Touch Wizz UI as well, marvelous job from Samsung UI team.

You better buy a Nokia 6 2018 or even a Redmi Note 5 pro, even a Oppo 5 youth, or Samsung J7pro than this MiA1.
