Mi A2/Lite

[Other] Why I will never again buy Xiaomi phone after Mi A2

1. Battery life issues dont get fixed
2. When comes new android version, the update gets pulled down at least 7 times becouse of bootloops or bricks
3. Development team fixes mostly only critical issues like no working bands after an update or download manager not working and crashing
4. Android One by Xiaomi is like hot potato, they want get rid of it from their hands as soon as possible. At least it looks like that.
5. System settings app got still unremovable add another email account and customize your device cards since first release for A2 of android 10!
6. Wi-Fi chip that they used in this phone is literally a meme, it disconnects and connects whenever it wants and not only on stock rom but also on custom roms!
7. Phone is hot on basic apps like facebook lite, facebook messenger and google chrome!
8. Updates are like a wheel of fortune. Owning A2 I am always scared hit reboot button becouse I dont want to end in bootloop or brick.
9. When going on home screen, there is chance that it will launch some application instead of returning to home screen on Q gestures
10. Cant use android 10 gestures on 3rd party launchers when google approved it with latest android 10 release and we still have first public release.
11. I hate factory resetting every single month becouse new updates comes out and new bug appears and disappears after factory reset!
12. Camera does not have support for cam2api and RAW images shooting! Every single phone which is not by Xiaomi with android 10 already got this!
13. System UI looks like somebody took android lolipop and put android 10 api into it. Corners of quick settings and notifications are sharp and not rounded.

If I would want I could continue but if this reads the Device team or Developer team.... Fix your issues! Android One by Xiaomi is literally a meme. If you cant fix these issues, dont make android one phones. Stick to the MIUI which mystically does not have that much issues like we on Android One. I am moving to OnePlus or Google later this year becouse you sell good hardware for cheap but software is bad and makes bad name to android one project.

I am Xiaomi user since release of Redmi Note 4 and MIUI looked good but today it looks horrible how they want to copy iOS and new quick settings? It looks horrible. And Samsung ships to EU only exynos memes which are extremely bad at battery life. That's why I wrote I am moving to OnePlus or Google Pixel phones because of good hardware and much better software.

Both are very nice choices too, Xiaomi was good but today things are more complicated..
I really love MIUI, but I really don't like iOS so maybe I do the same thing in future..

I am a real android one fan. will be switching to Nokia soon because Xiaomi dropped the Android one project. Have a Mi A2 now but it still has usb issues. Stull not sure if it are harware or software issues. After seeing most people with simmilar issues having the mainboard replaced I believe it to be a hardware problem. No more Xiaomi for me...
