Does this phone has USB OTG, i tried USB to USB type C adapter (didn't work) then i try USB type C to Micro USB adapter (still doesn't work), try install 3rd party File Manager still it doesn't work.
Only way for me to export the video is thru PC, which is quite hassle since i don't have a PC at home & company PC doesn't allow flash drive.
Can anyone here share your experience ?

Bwoah, 11 Aug 2018Stop it they did promise this phone will get android P on launch Livestream just watch on YouTube.Promise are made to be broke, What can you do if Xiaomi didn't update the phone to Android Pie ? Sue them ? The priority now goes to MiA2.
The cam in this phone is not so good in low light conditions, video mode is not so good, recording sound quality is bad. Dropping frame rates usually, and it cant export the 120fps slomo video
Manab, 11 Aug 2018Hello, NO promise to give P, Only 2 yr updates, 8.X.X. We now got 8.1.0 (ver 2) Jul 01 patch. ... moreStop it they did promise this phone will get android P on launch Livestream just watch on YouTube.

Lack of proper push mail apps, the gmail sharing is not user friendly.
Lack of sound recording for call which is important to me.
The low light & artificial light photo is a disaster, 90% of the photo i am taking are in these lighting conditions.
The antennas is kind of weak, same goes the GPS.
A purchase yesterday, coming from Samsung phone. No bloatware, no double apps, some most Xiaomi apps can be deleted and I did. So only one Xiaomi app is Feedback. No other bloatware, new Android update right away from the box.
Amazing, no more double-apps for mail, music, browserand gallery... my last Samsung it was. Cahrge time super fast, it's like having no charge time at all. Google Duo preinstalled app is bad selection, would Hangouts be better? Disabled and replaced with Hangouts. It took 6MB disabled, so no problems and just one app - it's amazing.
I only installed Fit and Hangouts, all else was what I needed. Play Music, Play Movies, Chrome, Photos... Preinstalled Google apps only 21. Gorgeously simple app list - no bloatware, no ads, nothing - just apps you need. The best phone.
Camera is good, but it could be more detailed in colours.

Can't wait to upgrade my mi a1 to p9 version. Well done Thank you... Thank you Xiaomi. Keep up the good work.
Is anyone here having any network issues after 8.1 user.? I tried changing my sim card, I even tried porting thinking may be Airtel sucks! But damn the problem remains the same. Factory reset did not change anything as well. Can anyone help me here.?
Screen colour look pale or washed out, also easily crack when drop, fragile screen.

I have GPS issue during Oreo 8.0 update during late 2017, i sent my phone to the Service Centre only to be told to wait for next update, eventually it took 5 more update for a periods of 4.5 months to solve the issue.

If you didn't update the 1st Oreo 8.1 then you be getting the "fix" 2nd Oreo update.
But most probably you get the LED light doesn't blink when there is Incoming message problem.
GPS problem was during Oreo 8.0 update, it last a few months from December 2017 until April 2018
