The Mi A3's journey to Android 10 has been one for the ages. The Android One phone went through several Android 10 bug-riddled builds before settling on a more tolerable one back in April. That build doesn't seem to be perfect either, though, as there have now been multiple reports of random reboots.
Ricci Rox,

Tumultuous. That's the word best used to describe the Mi A3's recent update history. The phone went through several Android updates that introduced a slew of bugs and issues, before settling on a recent build that seems to have mostly sorted out the problems. Just mostly, though, as there still seems to be a pretty major bug.

Going by multiple reports, the Mi A3 currently suffers from a random reboot problem. That bug seems to have been introduced by the April update—the same update that fixed most of the other issues from earlier bug-riddled Android 10 builds. 

Supposedly, the bug causes the phone to reboot without warning and get stuck on the Mi logo, prompting the user to reboot again manually. It also seems to happen pretty regularly—weekly at least. This report was corroborated by others on the Xiaomi forums, and we've seen similar complaints on our forums.

Thankfully, it would appear that Xiaomi devs are cognizant of the situation, and it shouldn't take long for a fix to be released. Perhaps alongside the June security patch.
