Xiaomi released the Mi A2 in India last week, with the device being, for the most part, an Android One rebrand of the Mi 6X. It also fails at being a worthy successor to the popular last-gen Mi A1.

Xiaomi released the Mi A2 and A2 Lite a while ago in China and Europe. Like with most Xiaomi release, the Indian smartphone has had to wait a short while for the device to be launched there. 

The Mi A2 sports a 5.99-inch FHD+ display, thankfully notchless. There's also Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection. It's powered by a Snapdragon 660 and features a dual rear camera setup (12MP Sony IMX486, f/1.75 aperture + 20MP Sony IMX376, f/1.75 aperture) and a 20 MP selfie camera with an LED flash for low-light conditions.

Being an Android One device, the A2 runs on Android Oreo but will receive Android Pie soon. It's equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, and an accompanying price tag of INR 16,999, which translates to about US$250.

While the A2 isn't a bad device, most may find it lacking, at least compared to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. It has no headphone jack, no fast-charging, and also features a slim 3010 mAh battery. Camera performance aside, most would consider it to be a poor upgrade to the immensely popular A1.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
