Android 11 is rolling out to the Xiaomi Mi A3 and left and right brick phones

As a general rule, whenever we talk about new software updates, especially the most important ones, we advise you to install them as soon as possible, in order to get all the new features and security fixes. Sometimes, however, deployments are sloppy and updates do bad things to phones. This is exactly what seems to be happening to the Xiaomi Mi A3.

Android 11 update has started rolling out for this Android One device, but there have been a lot of user reports that the update basically makes their handsets completely useless after installation – that’s what ‘we also call the brick.

So this time around if you have a Mi A3 and you get the update notification we would say you should probably wait for the installation. You may be lucky or your new year may be ruined. Not a fun choice, that.

Hopefully Xiaomi will quickly get wind of the situation and proceed with the offending update, fix any issues that made it the A3 brick, and then release it again. While given the company’s appalling track record of updating Android One devices, we wouldn’t hold our breath thinking this would happen anytime soon.
