NEW DELHI: Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi launched its first ever Android One smartphone – Mi A1 in India last year. At the time of the launch the smartphone came with Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box and the company announced that it will roll out Android 8.0 Oreo update for the device by the end of December 2017.
As promised last month, the company started rolling out beta testing for Oreo based ROM and then finally rolled out Android Oreo update for its Mi A1. However, soon after users started updating their devices the complaints about its performance started coming in.
Xiaomi Mi A1 users reported unresponsive camera app, unresponsive dialer app, battery drain issue, fingerprint sensor issue, unresponsive app button, unresponsive ambient light sensor and others.
The company has now acknowledged the issues are has also started a workaround for the problems. The company also posted about the same on its forum Mi community. The post read, “We just dropped an Android Oreo update for Mi A1 a few days back. We stumbled upon an issue where users are not able to call and dialer app is getting hanged or there’s an unusual delay in making the call. Upon researching we found that MyJio application is causing ANR when a call is being made or received and hence the issue. The issue is seen when MyJio app is being present with all app permissions granted.”
Along with this, the company has also suspended the update temporarily and will be rolling out a new update in coming days.
