After ... moreFor me the LED notification light not blink is an issue, often i can't tell when there is a message come in while charging the phone, i need to wake the phone to check from time to time (some company whatapps & email need to be attend immediately), my office rule is that message should be in silent mode since is quite annoying if many phone keep beeping, some people may have hundreds if not thousand of message a day from various message & social media apps.
Yes this a consider deal breaker.

It is not a matter of old phone vs new phone, in my opinion it is the fact that cheaper phone now offering MORE value for the bucks compared to the flagships. I am not saying they are better, but for the value I am very happy with Mi A1.
I am sorry if you seem to be having a lot of bugs, if I have my sms records wiped out I would not be happy as well :) I have not heard any of my friends got their text records deleted though, and they are using Mi A1 as well. Maybe you got a defective phone?
BTW I also have Samsung S8, bought that phone only for the camera, since I need to take photos for my work sometimes. I cannot argue the build quality on S8 is excellent, but still, for the value Mi A1 still wins (S8 is three times more expensive).

After the update my mobile is working fine with good battery backup and performance except the Notification LED BUG and thats not even a deal breaker bug.
Tom, 05 Aug 2018It will be better if you describe the problem you are facing that came along with the update. ... moreI am Ok with phone still running on Android 6 or 7 as long as is stable & problem free, compare to phone getting latest Android but keep having bugs.
BTW LG G4 is a 2015 product & you expect it to get Android Oreo ?? LG not even among top 5 brand, In my country LG don't even bother to bring in latest model as the sale are so pathetic, compare with Samsung which we will be among the first batch country to get it during each global launching.
I noticed the similarities among those who think MiA1 is a great phone, there all using a very old phone previously, eg. LG G4, Samsung Note 2 or Note 3, ... lol

Mi A1 is ok with each update, maybe a bug once in a while, but considering the price and how quick the update was, it is definitely worth it. I have another phone which is LG G4 (flagship phonand still got the same Android Marshmallow since it was released, the interface looked old compared to the new Oreo.

There developer team is like having otak udang, simply release the update without proper testing
Battery drain issue after July update. Just click 3 to 4 photos battery drain 1 to 2 percent .very very annoying.
I am from Indonesia and have been using Mi A1 for almost 1 year.
The phone is really great for its price, with Android One platform you will get an update as soon as possible, not like the flagship brands.
Camera is decent, not great but enough for daytime. Fingerprint sensor is quick, battery life is excellent, no heating problem whatsoever (charging, watching film, social media browsing, etc).
The only cons are sometimes the GPS is not accurate and the screed dim sensor when you pick up the phone is not working (so that I will accidentally press a button with my ear).
Very satisfied with the value. I can say that Mi A2 is worst because of the lack in expandable storage, no 3,5 mm jack. It feels like it is providing less features than Mi A1. I would prefer those two features than better camera and bigger screen.
Hope this review helps.

Anyway this is already a obsolete model, replaced by MiA2, updating the specifications here doesn't carry any weight to improve the sales.

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.
