One of the more frustrating aspects of owning a smartphone is if and when it will be updated to the latest software. It is not unusual for some cheaper brands to launch devices with an old version of Android and then never update it. Even large companies such as Samsung can be slow to roll out their updates due to the time it takes to apply their changes to their own modified version of the software.
Things are getting better though and Xiaomi are one of the companies that have been quite pro-active.
