Updates are a phenomenon that for most smartphone users running Android is practically inaccessible. Despite the fact that Google regularly releases new versions of its operating system on time, manufacturers often ignore them and either adapt with a long delay when the next update is on the way, or pretend that they do not exist in principle. However, there are also responsible vendors who genuinely care about their customers and try to provide them with support. The only pity is not always successful.
Xiaomi has obvious problems adapting updates. Android 10 is an example
The company Xiaomi this year became a living example of the saying 'we wanted the best, but it turned out as always'. Oddly enough, Android turned out to be litmus paper here. 10. Having decided to provide users with as many branded smartphones as possible with the update, for some reason she did not take into account that the rush in this matter had not brought anyone to good. After all, as it turned out, several devices at once Xiaomi suffered from mediocre optimization Android 10. They turned out to be Xiaomi Mi 9T, Mi 9T Pro, Pocophone F1 and Mi 9, owners who faced the widest range of bugs.
Why Xiaomi Mi 9T discharges quickly
Mi 9T lost its autonomy after updating to Android 10
Most of all went to the owners of Xiaomi Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro, also known as Redmi K20 and K20 Pro respectively. Immediately after updating to Android 10, users noticed that smartphones became unnaturally short on charging. In most cases, devices were discharged 30-50% faster than before, invariably citing the operating system as the reason for the discharge Android. Neither the display, nor the applications, nor the wireless interfaces that usually become the main source of energy consumption, namely the operating system.
Owners of Xiaomi Mi 9 were disappointed with a serious bug that caused the installation of certain desktop images to cause endless reboots. The smartphone seemed to go crazy, starting to spontaneously turn on and off the screen at intervals of one second. After that, the device vibrated three times and displayed a menu with three possible actions: reboot, reset to factory settings and contact support. But only a hard reset helped to fix the situation, to which most users were forced to resort.
Why Pocophone F1 won't update
With the Pocophone F1, everything went relatively smoothly. For a long time, the users themselves did not have the slightest idea that something was wrong with the update, but over time they found out that Xiaomi silently recalled Android 10 for this smartphone model. Representatives of the company explained this by a large number of system bugs that prevented the stable operation of the device, and therefore decided to recall it for revision. As a result, Android 10 for Pocophone F1 who did not install the update the first time is still not available.
Well, there is still Xiaomi Mi A3. It would seem that what problems can arise with him? After all, this is one of the few brand smartphones operating on the basis of pure Android. For him, nothing could be adapted at all, but simply redirected the update to users directly from Google servers. But it was not there. Despite the fact that Google has already released the first beta Android 11, Mi A3 still has not received even Android 10. Even Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite received, and Mi A3 – no. What is the problem, Xiaomi does not explain, but regularly – for the fifth month already – promises to release an update in the very near future.
