Redmi Note / 1s Compass calibration issues

Hi,
recently I discovered that Redmi note and Redmi 1s are having a very strange problem – its compass gets interfered by surrounding magnetic field/metallic objects far too easily! Hence you need to re-calibrate compass far too often.
I tried calibrating compass but as soon as I bring it in contact with another phone it again requires re calibration.

This is a big big bug in xiaomi phones that need to be addressed! Without proper compass calibration you cant use any GPS apps properly.

Can anyone else also confirm the issue that I am facing here?

no one here with this problem? Can someone please confirm if they facing this issue or not? If not then I will get my handset replaced from Flipkart!
