Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi A3

77.9% Xiaomi Mi A3 Smartphone Review – The price-performance king again! | Notebookcheck
The Xiaomi Mi A3 again aims to offer a lot of mid-range features for little money. However, actually we are not only seeing improvements compared to the predecessor. Find out in our test whether the 2019 model is still worth it.
Xiaomi Mi A3 Unboxing And Review: The Best Budget Mid-Range Android One Phone?
Source: Unbox English
With a Php 11,990 price tag, the Mi A3 is more affordable than the Mi A2 at launch and offers more features as well. Aside from a processor bump, you get an AMOLED display, triple rear cameras, a decent (albeit slightly slow) in-display fingerprint scanner, a bigger battery, a microSD card slot, and a headphone jack. While people may criticize the display resolution downgrade on the Mi A3, it is a small compromise to pay for all the features it has to offer at a sub-Php 12k price. The only other phone that can compete against the Mi A3’s is Xiaomi’s own Redmi Note 7: at Php 11,290 for the 4GB/128GB variant, you get a dual rear camera setup, a conventional fingerprint scanner, and an older Snapdragon 660 processor in exchange for a bigger 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS display.

70% Xiaomi Mi A3 review: The Xiaomi phone with a 'difference'
Source: Gadget Show English
When compared to its predecessor, Xiaomi Mi A3 comes with a lot of amendments. It has brought back the 3.5 mm headphone and expandable storage support — the things Mi A2 was criticised for. Over that, it has also upscaled the design and camera performance by a vast margin, which plays in favour of the Mi A3 as the majority of buyers do consider these two factors paramount.

70% Xiaomi Mi A3 review: How does this stock Android phone fare?
Source: The Indian Express English
Should you buy the Mi A3? If you want a Xiaomi phone with the stock Android and one that will get upgraded to Android 10 quickly, Mi A3 is that device. The performance is not bad, the battery life has improved drastically and there are useful design changes like the re-addition of the headphone jack and splash-resistance coating. The selfie camera is impressive.

Xiaomi Mi A3 Review
Source: Mobygyaan English
The Xiaomi Mi A3 is quite good when it comes to performance and camera but falls short in the display department. It offers just HD+ display whereas the competition offers Full HD+ display. Further, the A3 offers amazing battery life and the stock Android experience is quite smooth. If you want a stock Android experience instead of the custom user interface and can tolerate the low-resolution display, you can opt for this one. But if you are okay with a custom UI and can spend a little more, you can go for the Redmi Note 7 Pro which would also be good buy.

Xiaomi Mi A3 Hands-on, Quick Review: Is Pure Android Still Worth It?
Source: Unbox English
Xiaomi’s Mi CC9e has finally arrived in the Philippines, clothed in Android One and sold as the Mi A3. Xiaomi has followed roughly the same formula in 2019 as they did two years previously: pluck a fairly good bang-for-the-buck phone from their lineup, strip out MIUI and replace it with pure Android.

75% Xiaomi Mi A3 review: Good but not great
Source: India Today English
The competition under Rs 15,000 price bracket is tough in India. There are phones like the Realme 5 Pro, the Redmi Note 7 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy M30, among others. Despite tough competitors, I believe at Rs 12,999 the Mi A3 is a good deal if not great. Why not great? It's because of the screen and the overall performance of the smartphone.

Source: Tech PP English
See from the point of Android One, the Mi A3 is a great proposition. You get a terrific display and overall smooth performance with very good cameras and a compact form factor – very Nexus! But bring it into the mainstream and it suddenly starts looking vulnerable. The Mi A3 is a very good device for Android One fans, but if you do not value stock Android, you will consider alternatives. This is one for Android purists, really.

80% Xiaomi Mi A3 Review: Stock Android, Triple Camera, Amoled Display At The Right Price
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Yes, the Mi A3’s pricing and placement is a bit confusing. Its focus is supposed to be the camera but the ultra-wide angle lens feels a bit gimmicky. Android One is not exactly special anymore, thanks to Nokia’s entire 2019 lineup and the Xiaomi’s own Redmi Note 7 Pro offers a better chipset and a higher resolution display at a lower price. Which begs the question, should Xiaomi just kill the A series?

Android One is attractive for its timely system and security updates, and less bloated interface. The Mi A3 from Xiaomi has a few tricks up its sleeve to help it impress in this increasingly crowded market, including some of the most advanced cameras we’ve seen on an Android One phone. Performance is also capable for daily use, and the design is much more appealing than you should expect at this price. Mi A3 offers incredible value, but if your budget stretches a little higher and you're not fussed about Android One we'd plump for the Mi 9T instead.

70% Xiaomi Mi A3 review: More than the sum of its parts
Source: Android Central English
The Mi A3 combines a striking gradient design with decent internals and a clean software interface with the promise of quick updates. The 4030mAh battery easily lasts a day, the Snapdragon 665 chipset ensures there's no lag, and the 3.5mm jack is back. However, the 720p display is lackluster, and the in-display fingerprint reader leaves a lot to be desired.

68% Review – Xiaomi Mi A3: Trade-offs galore
Source: NLT English
Xiaomi bravely brought back the headphone jack, microSD card slot, together with a large battery. These are commendable feats - but the screen and performance are two major downsides that turned the Mi A3 into a dealbreaker. In a game of trade-offs, I think the Xiaomi Mi A3 is a downgrade compared to the Mi A2 from last year.

The Xiaomi Mi A3 has gotten so many things right that we are beyond conflicted at the end of this review. The screen is one of the most important features on a smartphone and the Mi A3 has the right panel but the wrong resolution. And then it goes to ace every test we've put it through. We can't call it a winner, that is certain, but it is truly unique in both good and bad ways.

Mi A3 Review: Hands-on
Source: PC Advisor English
Overall, we think of Mi A3 as a rival to the Google Pixel 3A in photography and performance, but at a significantly lower price. If your budget will stretch just a little higher the €329 Mi 9T is an excellent choice with a slightly faster chip and NFC.

Comment

Model: The Xiaomi Mi A3 is a rather familiar-looking smartphone so to say in terms of design but it is certainly rather unique in its very own way. With Xiaomi as an expanding brand forging its way to the top of the world amidst intense competition, it is very refreshing to see that yet another release from the China-based electronics company does not go unappreciated by loyal fans and differing audiences alike. This time, however, Xiaomi as a brand has stepped up on its game on the concerns of catering a better model of budget-friendly smartphone without cutting back on overall quality.

The Xiaomi Mi A3 prides itself with its triple MP camera setup. This triple-lens camera setup consists of a combination of a 48 MP lens, a 8 MP lens, and a 2 MP lens, which respectively serves a unique purpose in the aspect of photography. To further elaborate and detailing on this matter, it is worth pointing out that the primary camera of choice originates from the trustworthy Sony brand, which entails to the very fact that it is capable of capturing fantastic details on camera. The Sony 48 MP sensor incorporated within the primary camera consists of a solid combination of 6 pieces of lens and an f/1.79 aperture. The triple MP camera setup of the Xiaomi Mi A3 also comes with a 118 degree ultra-wide angle lens for depth control, which works in perfect tandem with a depth sensor, which further assists in the task.

The Xiaomi Mi A3’s camera setup also comes with a stunning 32 MP AI front camera, which is meticulously programmed to identify the sharpness and the vibrancy of the user’s facial visage in order to produce the most visually appealing selfie with every single snap. To top that off, the 32 MP AI front camera in question comes with a multiple of features such as AI Beautify and AI Portrait Mode, which are guaranteed to enhance the quality and performance of the user’s personal photography experience with the Xiaomi Mi A3. In addition, the performance of the Xiaomi Mi A3 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 AIE processor.
