Very slow MIUI file manager on Redmi Note 10 series; escalated problem
The Mi File Manager is the default application on all Xiaomi devices to access files. It is quite a feature rich software that also supports things like compression and even offline file sharing.
But unlike some of the other system apps, this handy little tool is available for download from the Google Play Store for everyone to enjoy where it is joined by other Xiaomi proprietary apps like the Mi Calculator.
Nevertheless, Mi File Manager app turns out to be the cause of annoyance for some users lately. This emerges quite clearly from several complaints:
I have been using Redmi Note 10 since March but am facing slow loading on MIUI file manager. No suggestion?
MDR. File Manager is Xiaomi’s worst app. Recently downloaded items would not be displayed until refreshing. The update took more than 2 minutes.
As stated above, the application takes enough time to display the files. And the type / format doesn’t seem to matter because none of the files seem to load, at least for several seconds or minutes.
Additionally, although the complaints seem to come mainly from the Redmi Note 10 series, there are also a few from other devices like the Mi Note 10 Pro.
Still, it doesn’t seem to affect all devices. I downloaded the app to my Xiaomi just to be sure and it seems to work perfectly fine.
Anyway, if you are one of the users facing the slow loading speed issue on MIUI File Manager app, you will be happy to know that the bug has already been forwarded to Xiaomi R&D.
Therefore, if all goes well, a fix should be rolled out in the form of an app update. If not, it will hopefully be available with the next system update for your device.
