Xiaomi Mi A1 Apperance:
The Xiaomi Mi A1 definitely seems like an upgrade in terms of design compared to any Redmi device launched in India. While it has design cues from already-launched Xiaomi devices, it manages to stand out. It is essentially a variant of the Mi 5X that was launched in China in July. This phone comes in Black, Gold, and Rose Gold colours,Rose Gold units arriving after a few weeks.
The front surface is of 2.5D curved-edge Gorilla Glass.The rounded edges and corners mean that it fits easily in a palm, and the 7.3mm side profile gives it sleek appearance. Xiaomi has said repeatedly that the Mi A1 feels great in the hand. The all-metal body looks solid.Mi A1 to the iPhone 7 Plus, and we can clearly see some similarities. The Mi A1’s dual rear cameras are placed similarly, and the antenna lines also look like the ones on the iPhone 7 series. Being extra cautious about overheating, Xiaomi has claimed that all Mi A1 units in India will ship with dual pyrolytic graphite sheets which should radiate heat quickly and decrease temperatures by 2 degrees.
There are capacitive Android navigation buttons below the screen. The power and volume buttons have a good tactile feel, and are placed on the right . The hybrid dual-SIM tray is on the left, while an Infrared emitter is placed on top. The bottom has a USB Type-C port, a speaker grille, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The fingerprint reader is located at the back, and it works well. The dual cameras protrude slightly from the rear, and are accompanied by a two-tone flash. There’s no branding at the front but you will find a familiar Mi logo on the lower back, along with an Android One logo.
Xiaomi Mi A1 specifications and software
The Xiaomi Mi A1 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor At this phone’s launch, Xiaomi indicated that this allows it to keep the price of the Mi A1 in check. The SoC is clocked at 2GHz and 4GB of RAM. There’s 64GB of storage, and expansion is possible using a microSD card (up to 128GB).
the Mi A1 has a hybrid dual-SIM design which means you have to choose between using two Nano-SIMs or one Nano-SIM and a microSD card.
The phone features a 5.5-inch LTPS display with a full-HD (1080×1920-pixel) resolution and a pixel density of 403ppi. It measures 155.4×75.8×7.3mm and weighs 165 grams and packs a non-removable 3080mAh battery. There’s an Infrared emitter on the Mi A1 as well.
One of the most marketed features of this phone is its dual cameras at the back. There are two 12-megapixel cameras, one with a wide-angle lens and f/2.2 aperture, and the other with a telephoto lens and f/2.6 aperture. There’s also a 5-megapixel front camera with an f/2.0 aperture and beautification mode.
It runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat which is one of the most recent versions of Nougat available for any Android device. While some will see stock Android as a welcome change from the MIUI software that comes preloaded on all other Xiaomi devices, there will be many who are fans of MIUI. Google has said that Mi A1 buyers will get unlimited high-quality storage for photos and videos, which is a common feature available across all Android smartphones and is not the same as the offer of unlimited photo and video backups at their original quality which the buyers of Pixel devices get.
One of the best things about stock Android is that there’s supposed to be no bloatware, which is a big improvement for budget phones. Despite the promise of a stock UI, the Xiaomi Mi A1 will ship with three Mi apps: Feedback, Mi Remote, and Mi Store. The device also ships with a custom camera app because Google hasn’t added dual camera support to its stock Android Camera app.
Xiaomi Mi A1 cameras
The dual cameras on the Xiaomi Mi A1 make up one of its biggest features. Thanks to the two different lenses, the company claims you can get 2x optical zoom and blurred backgrounds, the Mi A1 is still few software updates away from reaching that standard.
Autofocusing on the Mi A1 is quick, and is mostly accurate even in different light conditions. Phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and face detection help the camera lock focus in no time.
We noticed extensive noise in evening and nighttime shots, even with light sources around. In completely dark spots, the Mi A1 struggled a lot and most photos were indistinct despite the autofocus working well.
The 5-megapixel front camera took some good selfies in good light, and details were fairly good. Selfies taken at night were almost completely dark without some kind of light source around.
Overall, the Mi A1’s dual cameras are a great feature to have at this price point, and results won’t usually disappoint you. Low-light performance, however, needs a lot of work.
Xiaomi Mi A1 performance
We found the Mi A1’s screen bright enough, and both text and images look sharp. Viewing angles is good as well.
Like the Redmi Note 4 and Mi Max 2, the Mi A1 is a capable performer. It’s snappy and efficient for most tasks, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. 4GB of RAM is good enough for multitasking, and allows you to run multiple apps without any trouble. Touch response was good,We also found the 5.5-inch display great for watching videos.
Xiaomi says it has used dual pyrolytic graphite sheets to dissipate heat effectively,
The Mi A1 supports 4G with VoLTE (voice over LTE), and call clarity was good. The phone was able to latch on to networks even in weak spots, which is great. The IR emitter worked flawlessly with the Mi Remote app; the same as with other Xiaomi devices.
The speaker is loud enough to fill a small room, and sound is fairly clear. Xiaomi says that this phone has a 10V smart power amplifier for enhancing audio through earphones, and it has audio calibration algorithms as well. Our only issue is that this phone doesn’t ship with earphones.
Xiaomi Mi A1 battery life
The 3080mAh battery in the Mi A1 lasted for roughly 15 hours with heavy usage. We had Outlook, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Telegram, Gmail, and WhatsApp running in the background at all times. One of the problems that the Mi A1 will face is that other Xiaomi devices have better battery performance.
