    Post Mi 10 Lite overnight battery drain on MIUI 12

    MIUI 12 was released within a few days of me getting the handset - I don't remember doing a hard reset, but it is possible. Definitely didn't after the newest update to 12.0.3 though.

    Post Mi 10 Lite overnight battery drain on MIUI 12

    Mine has lost 30% in 36 hours, everything turned on except 5G as I'm nowhere near a 5G signal. Which seems about right for my normal usage.

    Post Mi 10 Lite overnight battery drain on MIUI 12

    Mine has lost 9% since it turned on at 7am this morning - so 8 1/2 hours. I'll leave it on overnight tonight, but your loss does seem excessive. I'm also on 12.0.3 Global.

    Post Is Mi 8 still worth buying at the end of 2020?

    Maybe I'm not typical - but at the moment, I can get three days between charges. Even when I'm away to the office, I could get 2 days.

    Post Will there be anymore security updates now?

    I'm no lover of Samsung tablets - but the current S range are significantly more expensive than the M5 was. Though I believe Samsung have promised more updates for certain parts of their range than they did in the past.

    Post EMUI 10 for our beloved M5 might be coming soon?

    I wouldn't say they've disappeared - but they are now using an AOSP build and have no access to Google Services out of the box. Which in turn reduces the practicality for many people, depending on the apps available in the App Gallery.

    Post EMUI 10 for our beloved M5 might be coming soon?

    It's also not what Huawei promised - in theory, it was one major OS update, 2 years feature updates, and 3 years security patches. However, given the Huawei/China vs Trump thing I can understand that going out the window. However, as I keep asking, who else does supported, decent Android...

    Post EMUI 10 for our beloved M5 might be coming soon?

    It's now dropped off the support list completely - so don't expect any more updates. Still, at least in the UK/EU it's had more support than most Android providing manufacturers. https://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/bulletin/ Now what other reasonably priced, higher spec android tablets are...

    Post Will there be anymore security updates now?

    I agree - and it's nigh on impossible to get a branded tablet of the similar modern spec at a sensible price. Or one that gets updates.

    Post Will there be anymore security updates now?

    According to https://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/bulletin/ it is no more on the list. Has only just been removed, as it was there last month. So there might be one last patch left (optimistic me...)

    Post EMUI 10 Roadmap - M5 not present

    If anything, I've found Huawei better than most for updates. We've had a lot of discussion about the situation with Google and the US, at which point I changed to a Xiaomi phone, but still pleasantly surprised to get updates on my M5. A colleague on the other hand, had hardly had any updates...
