Was buying a mi A2 also, then cancelled for poco. Don't like Miui just use Nova launched problem solved?

Now I got double tap to wake and tap to sleep also. Don't need to ever use physical lock button
You are just replacing launcher. MIUI customisations go way beyond just the launcher. I admit it is definitely not for everyone.

Got my Mi A2 last night, haven't put in my SIM yet but already did the initial setup, as expected, June patch installed and checked with no new updates.

I got my set this morning. Have not open yet, but do we really need foreign SIM to pull updates? I got from Mi Store Lazada

Probably so. Still not getting new updates with my M1 SIM in.

Some things... launcher can address. Some things are beyond the launcher, especially if they go missing or hidden elsewhere. I think in general, most settings are there. Most of the time, the settings got shuffled and hidden elsewhere.

The only brand I tried and know got missing settings is Nokia. Reported by many, but refused to be fixed by Nokia. Overall, it doesn't affect the phone, only very OCD users like me.

August. Need to use foreign sim card to get the update. SG sim card cannot get the update
if the A2 lite is a local xiaomi set, would the OTA update be working fine?

Yes.

The problem is SG is slow in pushing the updates. If you want to receive the updates fast, have to use foreign sim card to initiate the update. Otherwise just wait for it to be released locally
