About 2 1/2 years with me, and very happy about it, my wife and daughter have the same phone and all the 3 works just fine, and yes Xiaomi upgraded to MIUI Global 10.2, thanks Xiaomi!

Then, there is also no guarantee or warranty after flashing custom ROM. Yes, the device itself by the time of writing almost 3 years old, already long out of warranty, but people still need to have caution on custom ROM.

All smartphone manufacturers just want to earn more by expecting buyer to ditch their outdated smartphone and buy the latest model they release each years.
Of course Google is the bigger part to blame where they can't support every hardware platform properly.
Then, providing longer support also means need to spend more money for software engineers to maintain the devices, which doesn't add to manufacturer earning.

Then, pricing actually comes as the more realistic factor. In fact the proper stock Android experience phone such as Google Pixel series, Android One series, some might say Oneplus and Motorola UI are close to stock Android, are actually more expensive today than others almost equivalent speced smartphone.
Good or bad? At least Xiaomi is a proper brand that got maintain their smartphone software for years, despite not every updates give positive fixes, but their price to performance ratio are among the highest.

Battery indicator in battery management is showing steep degrade of power. How to resolve this problem. I think the last one was perfect and regretting to update into this.
I feel that since the latest Miui update (MIUI global 10.2.1.0) now the phone battery consumption is damn high... Feel regret to update my phone..
Miui 10.2.1.0 last stable miui update now available. Fixes lots of bugs. Headphone detection bug is finally fixed. So are issues with volte and sim detection. Good ram management. New boost speed ui in security app. "Follow us" in settings - about phone .All elements of miui 9 have been removed and updated to miui 10. Recents panel has the new ui found on other miui 10 devices. Notifications have been fixed. Excellent last stable update. Goodbye kenzo.(atleast officially). I guess the XDA community will keep this device alive for another 2 years or so.
After 3 year of using, this phone still powerful and has changed at least 5 Android version that I installed in this device. From Lollipop to Pie. I'm using stock android ROM--Pixel Experience--due uninspiring bloatware and bad RAM management. This device currently priced about 70-80 bucks. Redmi Note 3 now becomes entry level smartphone and I wouldn't recommended to buy this phone in 2019 due aging on hardware chips that may affect your phone lifespan and heating issue when running some intense 3D games--Pokemon GO, PUBG.
Camera still OK but bit better with Pixel GCam Port. Screen is OK too. Battery is also getting bit downgrade performance due aging and cycle count more than 1000. Antutu 7.1.3 managed to get 101k--which way higher than A2 Lite and nearly caps SnD636--in terms overclocking it and run Antutu in freezer to prevent Thermal Throttling.
