Xiaomi Mi A2

 

Xiaomi Mi A2 review: This affordable device looks great, runs a stock version of Android and boasts some impressive specs.

Strong performance for the price ; Classy build quality ; Pure Android

Screen brightness low and adaptive setting way off ; No NFC or headphone jack ; Limited availability

The Xiaomi Mi A2 is a phone that punches way above its weight. A few hardware shortfalls and limited availability drop it just short of an automatic recommendation, but this is deeply impressive stuff from Xiaomi.

Xiaomi Mi A2 review: Pricing out the competition?

 

To look at you wouldn't necessarily think the Mi A2 is an, affordable phone. Its build quality, feel in the hand and general operation – especially

Android One software is easy to use and accessible for all with no gimmicky software nonsense ; Great build quality for the price ; Solid camera setup ; Hardware that's beyond its competition

Camera bump protrudes to excess (annoying on a flat surface) ; Gold colour doesn't look quite right ; Could do with more camera options/details ; No microSD slot ; Autobrightness is over the top

Hands on: Xiaomi Mi A2 review

 

The second shot at Android One

Decent camera ; Large, balanced display ; Faster processor

Increased price ; Old school design

While you shouldn’t drop your Mi A1 for this phone, the Xiaomi Mi A2 gives non-MiUI fans another shot at entering Xiaomi’s ecosystem.

Xiaomi Mi A2 review: Gorgeous design, but Redmi Note 5 Pro & Honor Play better

 

A good sequel to the first Xiaomi Android One smartphone, but recommending the Mi A2 is not so easy.

Stock Android OS ; Camera ; IR Blaster ; Performance

Display ; No expandable storage ; No headphone jack ; No IP rating

At Rs 16,999, the Xiaomi Mi A2 definitely makes its mark in the Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 bracket, but it has clearly left enough leeway for its other family member, the Redmi Note 5 Pro, which retails for around Rs 14,999. Barring the Honor Play which...

Xiaomi Mi A2 Review

 

The fresh new Xiaomi Mi A2 is an affordable smartphone that seemingly embodies the perfect marriage between capable hardware and the intuitiveness of Google's clean Android software. Almost sounds too good to be true, but is there a catch?

Good design ; Excellent mid-range performance ; Adequate battery life ; Pretty good cameras, both rear and front ; Fast fingerprint scanner ; Smooth and intuitive stock Android interface ; USB Type-C port

The display could use better color and contrast adjustments ; No microSD card slot & 3.5mm audio jack ; The LED notification light is annoying

Xiaomi Mi A2 leaked by TENAA

 

The smartphone is for offering a stock Android experience, decent performance and design, and a relatively affordable price tag. The $220 phone is the first Android One device from Chinese company Xiaomi, and it packs a full HD display, a Snapdragon...

Other specs aren’t available yet, but the phone is expected to be sold in two versions. A Xiaomi MI 6X model will come with Xiaomi’s custom user interface for Android, and the Xiaomi Mi A2 model will be an Android One edition phone with near-stock...
