I'm trying this version since few days and it works smooth without any problem. I updated from android 9 without a reset; maybe I'll do a clean install for miui 12 when will be released.

I quote myself :
After few days the battery is not good : there is a lot of battery drain and i can do 2 hours of SOT .
Battery after 21 months maybe lost a bit of capacity but before was better.

I'm performing a factory reset and i'll reinstall everything (i prefer to don't do a backup for app, just for the settings).

I would like to wait MIUI 12 but i need at least 3,5 - 4 hours SOT for my use.

Worst update ever

Good afternoon .

I performed a factory reset and reinstalled a backup .

The battery on this update it's really the worst .  I can perform 2.30 h of SOT with the same use of before (3.5-4h with android 9 and miui 11, previous rom) and the factory reset didn't solve the situation . I'm using dark mode , 2 sim (one forced on 2G ) and the mi band 4 connected . The main usage is on Wifi in this days.

I performed also a battery calibration charging from off with procedures that worked with others android.

I hope that with miui12 i can reach again the 4 hours , because right now looks like that this update is "planned obsolescence" inviting us with the MI8 to buy a new battery phone . I don't want to change it for now because it's perfect , no scratchs and it works smooth. I will carry a powerbank with me.

Hello #happybuddhist. Is it possible to get android 11 with miui 12?  That's why, they don't have even beta rom for mi 8? Thank you in advance.

I wouldn't have much anticipation for Android 11. It might come, but that will take some time because this is already a two year old device.
Cheers! :-)

At this point I'm assuming that the developers forgot to release MIUI 12 for Mi 8 😂
Can someone remind them😐

the waiting game for the global miui12 for mi8 is quite frustrating. I mean mi8 is a flagship device after all. Nevermind that it's two years old. It should still be at the forefront of those devices to first enjoy the new rom update. What impression would future mi flagship owners think from owning a mi flagship device? That it's not worth it to go for the mi flagship ones? Because it's not going to guarantee a swift rom update when a new version is out. Just go for the cheaper ones. They have a better chance of getting updates first! Just saying though!
