My phone so far reboot twice, hang few times, it also heat up easily.
Now my MiA1 turn into a garbage phone.
8.1 update messed this device up completely. The fingerprint sensor is slower than ever, device hiccups every once in a while and the headphone volume has been lowered in a tremendous way. Xiaomi screwed it!

Regarding software-related problems, there aren't major ones. The phone is stable, fluid and I am yet to experience a sudden restart. There are some minor issues, e.g. LED notification not blinking after 8.1 update, instead it is constantly on once you have a notification, but this doesn't bother me. Additionally, sometimes (rarely) google app freezes for a few seconds, but I have experienced this on other phone brands, so it is not Xiaomy-related and will likely get fixed with google app update.

Mi A1 doesn't have any problems apart from notification light from recent update, which is a very small issue. It will be fixed in August patch for sure.

I qas thinking of getting this phone. Am I right in thinking that this has too many problems with software/hardware? I find it strange that an android one phone has so many software issues.

Found another issue after the 2nd Oreo 8.1 update, now my phone randomly reboot, despite i didn't touch any button, battery at 90%, not running any apps, no new apps been install, ROM still has 42GB of free space.
Xiaomi is amazing each update bring more issue than benefit.
For battery drain, check your APN settings. If you can set it to default again. Especially for 3G networks.

Anonymous, 27 Jul 2018anyone having the battery drain issue after 8.1 update?Me too, after the update battery drain faster, usually i will use my MiA1 as GPS navigator (using waze) when i reach my office atter 1 hour of travelling the battery usually lost 7% power, now when i reach my office the battery lost 12%, juice.
Previously i need not to charge the phone in office as it can last me whole day & still has around 20% by end of the day, now i need to charge the phone in the office, if don't charge it i worry it will be out of power when i need to use it as GPS when going home.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2018anyone having the battery drain issue after 8.1 update?I did, the battery drain much faster after Oreo 8.1 update, lost about 1 hour SOT, Now my phone only has 1 day battery life instead of 1.5 day, that's base on average usage, in I would to use it heavily, it only lasted 12 hours.
Vaitila, 27 Jul 2018This is not a software problem. It was created by the developer himself.You mean previously the LED notification light will blink when there is a incoming message, In the latest update the developer deliberately make the LED doesn't blink when there is incoming message, what the purpose ? to confuse the user during charging so that there won't know there is message or to confuse them when the phone is in low power & there is message ? So the purpose of developer doing that is to confuse the user ? what a brilliant developer... lol
