Buggy Realme UI 1.0 (Android 10) update given a thumbs down by many users
The stable Realme UI 1.0 update based on the latest and greatest from Google, Android 10, first rolled out about two weeks ago to the Realme 3 Pro and Realme XT sets in India.
The initial Android 10 firmware for Realme 3 Pro was dimmed unfit for use as a daily driver and as a result, the company re-released a patched-up version not long after, but this was never the case with respect to the Realme XT.
Even though this implied that the initial Realme XT Realme UI 1.0 update was more stable and bug-free than what Realme 3 Pro users got, it doesn’t make the former firmware perfect.
Matter of fact, plenty of bugs have been reported by Realme XT owners since switching to the new OS. Talk of the device bricking after the update, Google Assistant not working properly at times, incorrect corner padding, buggy Edge Lighting, app lock problem, battery drain issue, and so forth.
More reports are coming in from Realme community forums and even other platforms like Twitter, where a quick search of “Realme UI bug” phrase brings back tens of results with complaints about various bugs in the new firmware.
@realmemobiles Recently i have update my Realme xt mobile to UI version it was fantastic .but one bug i noticed while charging my phone i don’t notice the charging animations either old one or updated new one.
Extremely terrible battery draining problem after updating my realme xt to realme UI and aftr telling this prblm to @realmecareIN through DM they are not responding.
By the look of things, it’s obvious that some of those who have updated their Realme 3 Pro or Realme XT handsets to the latest Realme UI 1.0 update based on Android 10 are not enjoying the new software at all.
Perhaps a way out could be rolling back to the tried and tested Android Pie, at least until a more stable and bug-free Realme UI update is ready for either device.
We saw this with the beta update to Android 10 for both ZenFone Max Pro M1 and Max Pro M2, but unlike Asus, Realme hasn’t provided the official firmware required to roll back to Android Pie.
What this means is you’ll have to deal with the buggy software until current issues are addressed via another software update. The unfortunate bit about this is that we cannot guarantee all issues will be addressed in the next one or even two Realme UI updates.
Of course, not everyone is having multiple issues after updating to Realme UI 1.0. Some say the experience has been smooth so far, so feel free to chime in with your own experience via the comments section below.
