Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi A1

82.4% Xiaomi Mi A1 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Pure Android at a fair price. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is the European version of the Mi 5X. Equipped with LTE band 20 and Android One, for a low price, it offers not only regular and timely security updates but also a two-year update warranty on the security patches.
Xioami Mi A1 Hands-On Review: World’s Real Dual Camera Cheapest Smartphone
Source: Igeekphone English
The Xiaomi Mi A1 is not just a smartphone that turns the market upside down. It is also a pest. Do you pay $220 for a phone that does almost everything well, or do you pay more than 2.5 times as much for a smartphone that also has a great camera? In any case, the budget-conscious buyer cannot ignore the Xiaomi Mi A1.

80% Xiaomi Mi A1 review: a premium Android One phone without a premium price tag
Source: T3 English
We’re fascinated by Xiaomi, which has quickly carved out a niche as the Apple of Android: it takes a similarly stripped-back approach to Cupertino’s finest, offering phones that don’t faff around. The Mi A1 is a great example of that. It’s a revamped Mi 5X and looks and feels fantastic. There are a couple of wrong notes – no NFC means no mobile payments, and the screen is disappointing – but it’s still an awful lot of phone for not a lot of money. The A1 is great value for money, delivering an uncluttered Android in a phone that punches way above its price tag.

Xiaomi Mi A1 review - Xiaomi's best value for money stock Android smartphone yet
Source: Tech Nave English
There's no denying that the Mi A1 is a really affordable smartphone at RM1099, by that factor alone it can easily beat out several mid-range smartphones that are priced higher, so it's definitely a value for money device considering that it has pure stock Android, good battery life and surprisingly good gaming performance. However, the camera's overall performance is a bit underwhelming, but the bokeh effect is still good.

Étant particulièrement attiré par les interfaces Android pures, il faut reconnaître que l’appareil m’a particulièrement séduit. En l’absence d’alternatives crédibles, dans cette gamme de prix, c’est un smartphone à considérer pour tous les nostalgiques des appareils Nexus. Les Pixel 2 ne sont pas commercialisés chez nous et ils sont plus onéreux.

Source: Hardware Zone English
While Xiaomi continues to face stiff competition in the competitive S$500-800 price bracket, it is still the king of the sub-S$500 tier. Right now nothing even comes close to what you're getting with the Mi A1 thanks to its combination of premium design, good display and audio, wide-angle and telephoto dual camera setup and pure Android OS. While there are other pure Android smartphones on the market, none offer this level of hardware and design sophistication at this low of a price.

We're big fans of Xiaomi phones, but have been frustrated by MIUI on many an occasion. The Mi A1 and Mi 5X are to all intents and purposes the same phone, except one runs Android One and the other MIUI 8.5. That's huge news: at last we have a Xiaomi phone we can really get onboard with in the UK and Europe.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Review: This Android One device is a killer budget phone
Source: Techno Buffalo English
To sum it all up, Xiaomi’s Mi A1 is a great phone. It doesn’t push the boundaries with design and it doesn’t have top of the line specs, but all of that is cancelled out with its price. It costs a paltry $234, or 15,000 Rupees. A myriad of sins can be forgiven at that price, and so the Mi A1’s shortcomings turn into ignorable bumps on the road. Not that there were many.

The Xiaomi Mi A1 is a pretty solid and well-rounded package. The capable innards are housed in a premium metallic chassis that looks great. In the daylight the dual cameras shine, and its portraits alone merit a much higher price.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Review: The Android One Handset We Have Been Waiting for
Source: Androidbeat English
There is heavy competition in the budget mid-range segment in the Indian smartphone market. However, Xiaomi has managed to hit a home run with the Mi A1. This is particularly impressive since the company’s previous mid-range in the same price band, the Redmi Note 4, was also a winner and has been selling like hot cakes in the country.

Xiaomi's bang for the buck has always been hard to match, but the Europe-bound Mi A1 units appear to have lost some of their price edge compared to the bargains you can find at online vendors. Fair enough, it's a new playground and new rules. If that means sensible after-market support - compared to very limied one - Xiaomi might actually have a case there. We guess we'll know soon. You don't really think the Mi A1 is an accidental arrival, do you?

With that in mind, we still consider the Mi A1 to be a great value buy as it's basically a budget Pixel phone, or to compare it to another phone, it offers almost everything you get from the OnePlus 5, for under half the price - in fact, you also get the benefit of expandable storage, which I know the lack of can be a deal-breaker for many people.

Mi A1 is not just a Xiaomi device. This is the revival of the Android One project in India. and the world we are told. Of course for many people, the buying point might be the Xiaomi brand name, and not because stock Android is available on this phone. The rear camera though is on point and delivers quite well. The performance of the phone is also up to the mark and the promise of updates is always a good lure.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Review: Hope it is not an experiment!

Xiaomi has given a boost to the Android One programme of Google which was dying a slow death. Mi A1 is the best smartphone of Android One program till date. At Rs 14,999 it has a value for money price tag and performance will not disappoint you. Those people who didn’t like the MIUI interface of Xiaomi will most probably love the implementation of Stock Android. The areas that will disappoint are poor battery life and below par low-light photography.

Xiaomi Mi A1 looks bold, the build is fantastic, plus it guarantees Android software updates. While MIUI has built up its name, Xiaomi users have to play with a new user interface. The camera is impressive in terms of taking portraits, performs well especially in the daylight, not the best in the low-light. For a price of ₹14,999, this is the best phone you can get, Xiaomi Mi A1 highly recommended.

Xiaomi offers a well rounded phone at Rs 14,999 with stock Android to boot. If you are in the market for a Rs 15,000 phone, you will not go wrong with the Xiaomi Mi A1. Of course, you will have to factor in one of its major drawbacks - poor low light photography. But that apart, there is fairly little to complain with the Mi A1. And thankfully, it will not just be available on flash sales which gets over in seconds. Xiaomi has also partnered with a lot of offline retail partners for the Mi A1.

Xiaomi may go to great lengths to claim how good the Mi A1 looks and feels and does in the camera department, but, the real star of the show here is the software.

82% Xiaomi Mi A1 Review: Stock Android – Achilles or his heel?
Source: Tech PP English
By opting for stock Android, Xiaomi has actually taken away a point that distinguished it from the competition – MIUI. The lines that divide the Mi A1 from other stock Android devices is a thin one indeed. We think the A1 is one of the better options in the sub-Rs 15,000 category but it is by no means an overwhelming favorite like some of its predecessors were. Go for it if you want some serious camera magic without busting your bank account.

When the Android One programme was first launched, it promised a lot but eventually faded away. With Xiaomi, Google has managed to put a fresh face for Android One, but how well the new plan goes is yet to be seen. When it comes to price, the Xiaomi Mi A1 is a firecracker of a package. The metal body and overall finish are superb, while the display and overall performance are good. Users will also get to experience stock Android on a Xiaomi phone for the first time, so those who never liked MIUI, this one's for you. The dual cameras work well.

Model: The Xiaomi Mi A1 features a 12 MP + 12 MP dual camera solution with 2x optical zoom, phase detection autofocus, and a  dual-LED dual-tone flash. Its secondary camera works on a 5 MP, 1080p. At just 7.3 mm slim, the Mi A1 is designed to practically fit a user’s hand. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is a available in four colors; black, gold, rose gold, and red. Moreover, it is also fingerprint resistant, has discreet separation lines and is cloaked with a full metal body. Its non-removable lithium-ion battery with 3,080 mAh provides a battery life of 87 hours. It is built on a front glass, lined with an aluminum frame. The Xiaomi Mi A1 has a 2.5D curved glass display, that is perfect for reading, gaming, and watching videos. The glass is completely long-lasting thanks to Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The firmware has been updated to MIUI 9. The capacitive LTPS IPS LCD touchscreen features 16M colors, a size of 5.5 inch, a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 16:9 and supports multi-touch input. The phone comes with a Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 with 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53, and an Adreno 506 GPU, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The storage capacity can be expanded by up t0 128 GB with a  microSD (which uses the second SIM slot).

10V smart power strength and Dirac HD Sound algorithm ensure powerful speaker audio output and better sound quality for both music and phone calls. Clearer calls are also enhanced with the top and bottom placed microphone. Combined with a noise-reduction complexity by Fortemedia, communication is even possible in loud scenarios. The Xiaomi Mi A1 weighs at 165 g and measures at 155.4 x 75.8 x 7.3 mm. It was released in September 2017. The phone comes with hybrid dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by). The Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) system can be upgraded to Android 8.0 (Oreo). Its connectivity includes WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, and a reversible USB-2.0-Type-C-1.0 connector. The Xiaomi Mi A1 sets the benchmark for the Android One program. With a close to pure Android experience, it can offer much more than other Android phones, for example a very snappy UI and quick software updates. However, the pure Android feel might not be for everyone. It suites power users more than regular users who prefer a more feature-packed UI.
