    Update version makes the phone very very slow, it is not useful. How one cane get the original situation back?

    • Kannan

      Aug 27, 2017 at 8:27 am

      You can revert back to older version by flashing Fastboot ROM for your device, but it requires some expertise.

      • Kriti Gupta

        Sep 7, 2017 at 6:26 am

        By flashing fastboot ROM, will the device go to older version or the default version? If version 8.5.4 is not stable in the phone, will the coming updates be stable? Please reply.

        • Kannan

          Sep 7, 2017 at 7:41 am

          Installing fastboot ROM requires unlocked bootloader, which is not recommended. If you are facing any issue with the mentioned build we recommend waiting for the next update.

      First use comma when commenting. 2nd, maybe your note 4 is mtk helio version, which is not a good processor for maintain battery life compared to snapdragon. 3rd, you use it until evening or 7 hours, and you still got 30% battery? That’s still alot dude, some phones wont even get to 5 hours on time screen.

    In the Upgrade release note it was written
    Lockscreen- NEW – Hide notification content on lock screen. I can not see any such option after the upgrade.

    Moreover Fingerprint sensor is not working properly as earlier.
    Whatsapp notification is being displayed 2 times. kindly give the hotfix for these issues.

      Usually, firmware update enhances device performance. We have updated to 8.5, but no major issues found.
      To downgrade to Marshmallow, you will need to unlock the bootloader (it will void your device’s warranty) and flash the fastboot ROM (MIUI 8.2) using Mi flash tool. Check our previous guides.

      If you received the OTA update, just let it download and update. It will not affect the warranty.
