    I’ll believe it when I see it that all these phones get updates without issue

    Nothing but respect for updating almost all of their phones. However, newer Android version(some are still on Kit Kat I believe)and faster updates would be nice

      Xiaomi still MIUI i think. Android update won’t give much impact to them
