The eternal "bad luck" continues, accompanying the 31 December 2017 update to Android Oreo for the Xiaomi Mi A1, which we can define a disaster. It is already twice that the same has been stopped due to software bugs probably arising from a beta duration too little. And when everything seemed to be solved with the latest release, two annoying bugs affecting the device resurface, namely a dizzying drop in battery life and a slowing down of unlocking with a fingerprint sensor.
The official support forums on the Reddit, XDA and Xiaomi platforms have been stormed in recent weeks from users who complain about the aforementioned problems that they declare to having to recharge your A1 Mi at least twice a day even with minimal smartphone usage. The problem with the fingerprint sensor seems to cause a brief, but annoying, delay in trying to unlock the phone, which someone measured as a duration of about one second. By itself this problem does not seem to be so relevant but if added to a rollout that proceeds with sobs and to battery problems, then the level of user frustration is understandable.
In any case Xiaomi is analyzing the problems and it seems that a fix about the problem of the battery drain is already ready while the fingerprint sensor is still under development. In short, this unfortunate update to Oreo is a real shame, overshadowing the extraordinary qualities offered by Xiaomi Mi A1. But we are confident and hope the developers of the Chinese company will solve the problems soon.
