  1. I was purchased redmi 4a mobile last month, from last month the mobile performance was awesome, but there is a problem occurred, it was just restarting itself for several times while using the phone, i was restored it once, but the problem is same? Can u please told me the solution.. thank you

  2. I hear lot of touch panel not working issue in MI 4A. Even my wife phone has the same issue. Is it a real failure or a false failure. In the service center they mention water in side the phone. I really don’t understand this point. And they show me a contaminated point near the display connector. If water has gone inside then the complete board should have a water marks. Why only on one area there is a watermark. I suspect some kind of contamination on the display connector on the PCB.
    Can any one suggest on the situation.

  3. An error in application popup is coming in my mobile…And I have did factory data reset…And flashed my mobile…
    Again the popup error is coming in my mobile

  4. I installed the 8.5.7 miui and tried checking out the new feature of the update and it tells me to log in with a xiaomi id, but I already made a mi account… What should I do?
