Indeed, they do not respond at all once the update is installed, a problem that seems to persist from the beginning. deployment at the end of last December. There is no solution to the bug at this time, but in the meantime Xiaomi has stopped the release of the update in question.
At the end of last December, Xiaomi launched the deployment ofAndroid 11 on its Mi A3 and, like the switch to Android 10, it is a fiasco. Several unlucky users have indeed reported that their smartphone no longer responds since the update.

My phone is completely dead for the New Year ”.
