Probably each of us at least once faced with certain problems when upgrading their smartphones. Often, as practice shows, a lackadaisical approach to the design updates are reflected on the iPhone, but from time to time about the shortcomings of the fresh versions of the OS, and misleading Android users. But usually if bugs are distributed among the smartphones of different brands are more or less evenly, then lately got the impression that someone jinxed Xiaomi because the owners of branded devices Chinese brand began one by one to complain about kirpichnye.
This week, Xiaomi has released a budget Android 10 for Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. This smartphone belongs to the special lineup of devices coming under the Android One. Right out of the box they run on stock Android versions and will not require adaptations of MIUI, unlike all other devices, so, logically, problems with their update should not be. But here’s the paradox, this is not the first case, because a week earlier it became known that Xiaomi released and immediately withdrawn Android 10 for Xiaomi Mi A3 because of the abundance of flaws that are incompatible with a stable job.
Why you should not upgrade Xiaomi
Apparently, the problem is quite common as complaints about the failure appeared in many online venues, including the official forum technical support Xiaomi, the portal Reddit, on the XDA forum and social networks like Twitter and Weibo. According to the users of Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite, faced with the problem, their smartphones are stuck in a loop rebooting. Others say that the machines just shut down and not allow them to do any manipulation, including to enter into recovery mode to roll back to stable build of the operating system.
DO NOT UPDATE!!! ANDROID 10 will TURN YOUR Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite IN a BRICK!!! I read this warning before upgrading, but have decided that I will not touch it and installed it. The result – Xiaomi, damn it – my phone just stopped after the final reboot, applying changes updates. I have found a lot of reviews that Android 10 breaks Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. So do not expect that you will carry, but better to just wait for the stable build, wrote one Reddit user.
What smartphones Xiaomi
But the funny thing about this situation is that problems pursue not only the owners of the Xiaomi Mi Mi Lite A2 and A3 smartphones but also other product lines. To date, there are at least 6 sets Chinese brand, faced with various problems resulting from the updates. Some of them work on the basis of the firmware MIUI. Here they are:
- Xiaomi Mi A3
- Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite
- Xiaomi Mi 9
- Xiaomi Mi 9T
- Xiaomi Mi 10
- Pocophone F1
Not all devices on this list turn into bricks. For example, Xiaomi Mi 9T suffers from premature battery drain, which after the update started to work 30-40% less than before. The owners of Xiaomi Mi 9 faced with unexpected reboots due to installation of a black background on the desktop Wallpaper. And Xiaomi Mi 10, oddly enough, just up and died, refusing to react to user after you install update MIUI No. 20.3.4. However, neither in that, nor in another, or in the third case, Xiaomi no corrections have not yet proposed.
The smart phone endlessly reboots. What to do
What to do now? If you have not yet updated, it is best to try to avoid this, and further, regardless of the model of smartphone you are using. Practice shows that problems may face the owners of any devices, even the flagships, even state employees. Well, if you have already updated your smartphone turned into a brick, you have no choice but to contact the Russian office of Xiaomi phone 8-800-775-66-15 or contact the nearest service center. Let’s hope there will not give assistance.
