Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus user takes company to court in China over lack of MIUI 8 stable update for NFCReuters
A user of the Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus has apparently sued the Chinese technology giant allegedly citing the company's lack of taking initiatives as far as seeding updates to unlock the complete NFC functionality is concerned. This owner, who goes by the name Zhang, is said to have purchased the Mi 5S Plus during October 2016.

Now, as per a GizmoChina report that quotes Zhang, he reportedly purchased Xiaomi's Mi 5S Plus after going through the official Xiaomi website and reading about the fact that a stable MIUI software update would be seeded to enable users to harness the complete functionality set of NFC. The feature set in question is the ability to use the Mi 5S Plus to make bank payments and for other cashless services such as paying for metro, bus rides using the MiPay functionality.

The above features, even though officially announced by Xiaomi, were not available to all Xiaomi Mi 5S Plus buyers, as these were slated to be made available for everyone through a stable MIUI 8 software update, which should have been seeded by now. However, users have not reported to have received this MIUI 8 firmware enhancement.

As per GizmoChina, Zhang highlighted these aspects in an official letter sent to Xiaomi. He also reportedly sought full refunds from the company for having not yet released the MIUI 8 update. At this point in time, the concerned court is yet to come out with a verdict.
