Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has re-released the Android 10 upgrade for its budget smartphone, the Xiaomi Mi A3. This re-release comes weeks after the company pulled back the update on account of multiple bugs. These bugs ranged from random crashes to device reboots, dead fingerprint scanner, lag, microSD card troubles and more. Some users also complained of decreased image quality on the front camera, and worse battery backup. This laundry list of issues pushed the company to stop the rollout. The company confirmed that it will address and fix all the issues quickly. Almost three weeks later, it looks like the company is back with the fixed version of the update.
