The most common problems with Xiaomi smartphones; How to fix

Have you ever wondered what is hidden behind the expression “top for your money”? Personally, I always see some irony here. They say the Chinese have cut half of the cool features, added advertising to the branded shell, and here you go. My experience and that of my colleagues who have used Xiaomi smartphones have almost always been positive, but there were some nuances. Today I would like to talk about the most popular problems of one of the most famous Chinese brands of mobile technology and discuss ways to solve them.

Why Xiaomi lags

I think everyone understands: there can be a lot of reasons why a smartphone slows down . Of the most popular, we highlight the following:

  • Lack of free memory on your smartphone.
  • An old version of the operating system.
  • The software is too heavy.
  • Power saving mode.
  • Failure of telephone components.

The first thing to start with is to check the free space in the device’s memory. Manufacturers usually advise keeping at least 20% free memory. If you suddenly do not have enough space on your phone , I recommend first of all to clear the cache . In most cases, this is sufficient.

The second reason is the old version of the operating system. Usually, how it happens: as soon as some global problem appears on some smartphone models, the manufacturer, as soon as possible (or not), releases a firmware update so that everything flies better than before. Therefore, the answer to the question Is it worth updating to MIUI N is almost always in the affirmative.

If your smartphone starts to lag after installing a program or game, check the software for compliance with your specifications. Replace Office with Google Doc or ditch animated wallpapers. For games, you can lower the graphics settings here . This is usually done inside the game itself.

Xiaomi does not turn on. What to do

If your smartphone won’t turn on , don’t panic. First, you should try to charge the device using a different cable (it is advisable to change the cube too). It is possible that the charging cord has broken .

Plus, check to see if dust has gotten into the charging connector . Or the wire may not be inserted due to the sheath. Try to change the outlet, perhaps the reason is in it.

In the event that these tips do not work, the only reasonable solution would be to take the phone to a service. Experts will carry out a complete diagnosis of the device and tell you how you can get rid of the problem.

Why Xiaomi reboots itself

First, check to see if you forgot to charge your smartphone. Often times, the device simply doesn’t have enough power to turn on. If you left the phone and left the phone for a long time in a discharged state, wait at least 15 minutes before turning it on.

Secondly, exclude any mechanical damage to the smartphone . It is possible that the power button is just stuck or the phone got into the water .

Thirdly, an error is likely during the firmware of the device. Always remember: any intervention in the operating system (except for official updates) you do at your own peril and risk.

Plus, don’t forget to check the battery status and the presence of viruses. For the first, I propose to check the behavior of the smartphone on charging, and for the second, the official Security utility, where the antivirus is located.

Xiaomi is not updated

Most often, a Xiaomi smartphone is not updated for the following reasons:

  • The current version of MIUI is installed.
  • The firmware itself contains errors.
  • Slow internet connection speed.
  • The battery has less than 60% charge.
  • Problems in Phone Settings.

The solution to the main problems comes down to a banal check of the Internet speed through SpeedTest and the battery level in the top line. If the problem persists, try checking your smartphone settings .

How to check for an Android update

To check your smartphone update settings , you need to:

  • Unlock your smartphone.
  • Go to Settings, About phone.
  • Then tap on System Update.
  • Then click Check for Updates.

If you tap on the three dots in the upper right corner and go to Update Settings , you can set the auto-update parameters so that in the future updates are always downloaded and updated automatically. This will help you avoid unnecessary problems in the future.

Xiaomi does not connect to Wi-Fi

To begin with, it is worth dividing all the problems should be divided into the nuances of the smartphone itself and the router itself. If the reason lies in the phone, then first of all check if the toggle switch is turned on in the Wi-Fi Settings .

If that doesn’t work, try tapping the network you want to connect to and click Forget this network , and then reconnect. Plus, check if you have VPN enabled and don’t forget to restart your device.

Reboot your router. If that doesn’t work, check if the LAN cable is connected to it. Then you can safely contact your provider. It will guide you through the next steps.
