I'm a xiaomi neophyte, I've just got a redme3 rom xiaomi.eu stable It happens to me that during the call the interlocutor suddenly does not hear me, as if the mute was activated. I have the impression that it only happens if I'm outside. How can I fix it? Thank you

Fantastic! I just ask for something that until now I found it unpleasant: I own a Xiaomi Redmi 4X for only 2 days and I noticed that often when I pull down the drop down menu of some applications, there is a yellow solo on top , as if it were a defect in the display. Then just the curtain goes back clean as before. Will it be a bug? for now I find myself very well and the infrared is a slut!
