Talking about the latest issues first is the gaming related and users claim that the phone detects an automatic controller and disables the on-screen one. “In my Redmi Note 5 (3gb) I can’t play games like modern combat 5 because it mistakenly detects that I am using a gamepad and I am not! Help me pls do something,” writes a user on Mi forum.

Another user posted, “I have tried modern combat 5 myself and the game automatically detects a controller and hence disables the on-screen controller and the game is not playable. Kindly look into this bug and fix it asap. Many other games aren’t playable.”
