Xiaomi is a big name in the Asian mobile industry and its been taking over the major part of the industry for few years. The company has launched many smartphones in the recent years that has changed the definition of powerful smartphones. Prior to the Xiaomi smartphones, it was quite hard to believe that the phones with high-end specification can be folded under budget-friendly prices. The company has offered the phones with all the functionalities almost at the one-third price of the iPhones.
However, the Xiaomi smartphone has always been covered up with its MIUI. This makes the Android phone to move away from the Android basic features and the needed functionalities. But, in the smartphone Mi 5X that company launched in India as Mi A1 the operating is system works purely on the Android One. The new partnership of Google and Xiaomi offers a budget-friendly premium smartphone to the users looking for a Xiaomi device with better software support. Xiaomi Mi A1 comes with an alluring design and packed with the powerful speciation to become one of the demanding smartphones in the Indian market.
The phone don't have the quick charging support
Xiaomi Mi A1 comes with the metal unibody design that seems familiar to the Redmi users. The phone looks like a perfect blend of the Redmi Note 4 and OnePlus 5, where the front screen covers the traditional Xiaomi design and back looks a lot like OnePlus 5. Mi A1 is made up of the aluminum frame and the front is covered with the glass. The edges of the phone are curved at the back and antenna is placed at same placed like OnePlus 5. There is no much enhancement in the phone’s design compare to the Mi 5X, however, the phone is lighter and with 7.3mm it feels thin in the hand. The most amazing thing about the design is how the phone is tapered from front to the back side. In front, it looks flat, but its starts getting curved from the sides and corners as you look at the back. That makes the Mi A1 provide a very comfortable grip in the hand without any inconvenience. The rear camera is placed at the left top corner with the LED flash and fingerprint sensor is positioned at the best place which is very easy to reach. At the bottom of the phone, you will find a USB-C type port for the charging with the mono speakers and 3.5mm jack.
Xiaomi Mi A1 sports a 5.5 inch IPS LCD display that comes with the 1080X1920 pixel resolution. The screen of the phone offers a 16:9 aspect ration and the phone comprises a 70.1 percent screen to body ratio. The LCD display is quite good with the full HD support and delivers a full range color experience to the users. The screen is protected by the Corning Gorilla glass 3 that saves the screen from scratches. The screen looks bright as compared to the other Xiaomi devices available at the same range which makes it look little dull.
As we have already told you the Xiaomi tries to make the smartphone powerful enough to perform almost every task thrown at it. Xiaomi Mi A1 comprises a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset which is backed up by the Octa Core 2.0 GHz processor. In order to make the smartphone faster, the company has coupled the processing unit with the 4GB RAM that comes with the 64GB internal storage. The memory of the phone is expandable up to 128GB via the microSD card slot. However, it comes with the Nano-hybrid slot that means the users need to choose between the microSD card or the second SIM. Xiaomi Mi A1 comes with the Android Nougat and the device is upgradable up to Android Oreo (8.0). In addition, the phone has been intentionally given the Android One that means it runs on the pure Android operating system without and Xiaomi’s MIUI interference.
Mi A1 is equipped with the dual 12MP rear camera that comes with the tentpole feature for amazing shots. The 12MP lens of the rear camera has f/2.0 aperture for high-quality images while the second 12MP lens offers the 2X optical zoom just like the iPhone X. The camera comprises the features like phase detection autofocus and has the dual LED dual-tone flash. During our review, we have captured many images using the Mi A1 camera and we have experienced that it takes good low-light images too.
The Xiaomi smartphone comes with a 3080 mAh Li-ion non-removable battery. The battery provides enough power to the Mi A1 that lasts almost for 14-18 hours if used as an average smartphones users. However, the battery has disappointed us a little as the Redmi Note 4 comprises a blasting 41,00 mAh battery. The company should have given more battery power to the phone. In Spite of having the USB-C type port and the Qualcomm chipset, Mi A1 lacks the support for the quick charging.
Xiaomi Mi A1 is among the most suitable budget-friendly smartphones that come with the premium looks and latest hardware support. The phone performed well during the review, there was no issue with the fingerprint sensor and the camera quality is amazing. The rear camera captures flawless low-light images and the front camera works well during the video calls and offers good quality selfies. Mi A1 comes with Android one, that is what makes it superior to other smartphones in this price range. The device did not lack in terms of performance and offers an hassle-free experience while switching between the apps.
Where to buy: MSRP $208.00
