Mi A3 is once again receiving Android 10 update, but you probably shouldn’t download it

Xiaomi has released the Android 10 update for the Mi A3 again, but users complain bugs have not been removed

  • The Mi A3 has started receiving Android 10 update again
  • The update weighs 1.33GB and comes with April 2020 security patch as well
  • Mi A3 users are complaining that the new update still has bugs

Xiaomi has resumed Android 10 update for Mi A3, which was previously halted a couple of times due to bugs and issues. However, it seems the new update isn’t any better from the previous ones. Some Mi A3 users who have installed the latest Android 10 V11.0.11.0.QFQMIXM firmware are complaining that the update does not address any of the bugs that were found previously. While many Mi A3 users have been eagerly waiting to update their phones to Android 10, you should probably hold off from downloading the latest versio if it has arrived on your device via OTA. Xiaomi, in its Mi Community forum, stressed that while the Android 10 update for Mi 10 is out now, it will be rolling the update in batches.

This is the third Android 10 build Xiaomi has rolled out for Mi A3 smartphones. The first update was rolled out back in February, but Xiaomi stopped after users discovered bugs such as battery drain and fingerprint issues. The company re-released the Android 10 update in March with the latest security patch, but the same issues surfaced again. The third Android 10 update, which has started rolling out now, is again giving users trouble, but we hope Xiaomi will address them soon. The new update weighs 1.33GB, April security patch, and Android 10 features such as dark mode, privacy controls, and gesture navigations.
