Good update solving the problem of flash blinking....1August update...
Now that we are nearing the end of August, last mi A1 security update was 1st July, I guess there are no security problems with Android one since July or the mi A1 had now been abandoned by Xiaomi in favour of their new mi A2.
asking, 20 Aug 2018does this phone has face id? Just basic face recognition, pretty much useless actually.
Don't expect IPhone X style face ID.

Anyway listening to radio is more than just music or song, we also listen to news & some informative channel, many of us also need to use public commuter to works & study, this can take up to 1-2 hours or more on each trip, listen to radio is a good pass time.

Great phone, fast 4 G 1 Mbps, cheap plan I use. Streaming all works. Good connection where my old Samsung phone was about to die ion coverage, this has 4G connections.
Amazing phone, no need for a radio. Camera inside could be better, outside is fine.

You can't install FM Radio widget in MiA1.
If you like listening to FM Radio all day, is better that you get Redmi Note 5 or other brand & model that come with FM Radio.

The demo phone has few apps but I cant find any radio app inside. Is it the 'radio app' come with new phone or is it possible the 'radio app' has been deleted from the demo unit? I like to listen to radio in the morning and evening.
Disappoints with MiA1, very bad network connection & inaccurate GPS, photo taken indoor not clear, FM Radio no widget need to go to test mode to listen & very troublesome, screen colour very pale, i thought Pure Android should not lag, but apparently this phone quite lag, phone update often have bugs & need to wait for update to solve, problem is each update solve a few bugs & bring in new bugs, is like endless problems.
Bought it today second hand for 100 euros. Great phone after shiter phones. Camera good at sunny weather. Night photos not very clear

Can someone who has this phone please confirm that it has the IR Blaster remote control feature? (I find this incredibly useful wen traveling. Hotels/apartments often provide only a basic remote; some have a Smart TV with far more features or services than you can access. Using a full-function remote on a phone or tablet gets you all of these features back.)
Anonymous, 16 Aug 2018If you look at Xiaomi previous update sequence, there update newer model before the older one.
Why do you want timely update? when u want to stay on old firmware, and mock the new update for no reason. That doesnt make any sense.
Respect the hardworking people behind it. Mi A1 Rocks.
