Xiaomi Mi A3

 1: Volume isn’t High

Who doesn’t need a loud sound? Perhaps, no one! As compared to the volume on those devices partnered with Bluetooth, you no need to do anything extra with a wired alternative to get a higher volume. 

What to Do?

The highest volume is prearranged and you can only ask Xiaomi to tackle it in the future update if you need to do this better. Instead, the smartphone must be rooted, if you tweak the sound in detail with modifications. Be noted that we don’t recommend this without being well educated and without risking your warranty.

2: Mobile Data and Wi-Fi Issue

A plethora of users worldwide have reported that they are facing Mobile Data and Wi-Fi issues on their Xiaomi Mi A3. It appears that users aren’t able to get connected to any wireless device whereas many are facing slow Internet speed. Aside from Wi-Fi, Mobile Data issues are quite common among users as users had a hard time using 4G. If that happens on your Mi A3, make sure you go through these steps!


  • Reset networks setting and try reconnecting
  • Restart your wireless device
  • Set AP band to 2.4 GHz
  • Ask for new configuration from mobile carrier

3: Battery Problem – Draining Fast
