Hmmmm. My Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite has perfectly decent headphone volume output. I can't recall them marketing it or the Redmi 6 Pro as having a specific amplifier or audio components. The Mi A3 is just a camera centric budget device (CC9e) that skimps on the quality of audio over the headphone output is all.

In Mi A-series, it's the A1 having the best Audio via the headphone jack. Not all earphones/headphones are the same, you might just have a lower impedance headphones for your A2 lite.

It means Mi A3 has weaker amplifier. I never recommend headphones on Xiaomi devices not advertised or does not specify additional/specialized hardware audio enhancement. This is not new. Review tests would show (GSMArena for example) that most Xiaomi smartphones have good to excellent audio (using external amp) but is let-down by the phone's amp for 3.5mm jack, as shown when a higher impedance headphones were used. Earphones, IEMs and headphone impedance were not the same. A 16 ohm earphone or IEM would have excellent volume on all xiaomi smartphones but a headphone with the same impedance would sound lower due to the fact that headphones have significantly bigger diaphragms than the aforementioned audio equipment. You have a specification mismatch.

but the case is same when using type c handsfree .. the volume is significantly low ... you can't feel the bass etc which is quite clearly audible through other devices.

Type-C is not totally the same with 3.5mm jack audio output. Type-c earphones can have their own circuitry may that be for additional circuit for ANC, additional DAC or AMP which draws their own power from the port. With type-C earphones, all of my previous statements here in this thread could be deemed irrelevant.

what I think is that it's a software side thing, because normally when using handsfree, when you increase volume, a message appear that exceeding this point may harm your ears, but in the case of Mi A3, this message don't appear, neither in 3.5mm jack, nor using type c

IF you're certain that that's the case, please file a feedback using the Feedback app. Your phone's logs should give devs a pretty good sample for software-related audio issue.
