Mi A2 Specifications:

 

It’s the much expected Android one smartphone. The specs sheet proves that the device is worth the wait. Mi A2 will be a powerful Pure Android smart phone at an affordable price.

The smartphone comes with  5.99-inch FHD+  display with 18:9 aspect ratio and  has the strongest Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

The device powered with Snapdragon 660 chipset which may be not be the latest. But still it is a powerful midrange processor and an upgrade over Mi A1’s Snapdragon 625. GPU Adreno 512 is also an upgrade over Mi A1.

It has very good dual rear camera combination with 12MP sony IMX486 sensor (f/1.75 aperture, 1.25um) + 20MP (f/1.75 aperture, 2.0um). The primary rear camera with 12MP and IMX 376 sensor provides better low light pictures. Whereas the secondary camera supports AI assissted portrait mode. Similar to Redmi note 5 pro, Mi A2 has 20 MP primary camera with f/1.75 apesrture ratio. The front camera aslo has AI portrait mode and has Front flash as well. The primary camera supports 4k video recording and supports EIS(Electronic video stabilisation).

The top variant comes with 6 GB RAM with 128 GB inbuilt memory. Supports Fast charging 3.0 with type C connectivity and has a decent 3010 mAh battery supporting quick charge 4.0.Its ships out with 10W  charger in the box.

Looks like Mi A2 doesn’t have a head phone jack and we are wondered why Xiaomi need to cut it down. Fingerprint sensor is at the back of the device.

Verdict:

What’s Good:

  • Better camera
  • Faster Android Updates
  • Infra red sensor a added advantage.
  • No flash sale. Flash sale is really painful for users as they have to wait long tine2to book it.

What could have been better:

With Xiaomi focusing the Mid range segment, Mi A2 should be priced around 15k. As there are lot of competitions at this price range with better specs or same level of specs out in Market.  But Xiaomi is stressing much on camera. Lets wait and see whether it justifies the price tag.

Head phone jack miss is pure disappointment

Lesser Battery compared to other Xiaomi phones but Android one should conserve less battery considerably.

Xiaomi clearly failed this time at pricing segmemt. We have to see what users are feeling abt this pricing.
