I very much agree with your opinion, it's running on Andriod Naugat 7.1.1 since we've purchased this device but since now there are no Android Updates provided to us till date. Android Updates play a major role in the performance of the device on the software point of view and I am very disappointed with MI team regarding to the same. It's users have been posting several posts about the same but still no steps are taken towards it. Hope they provide the Andriod Updates regularly ASAP....
