Xiaomi Mi A1

 

Android One coming of age?. Xiaomi Mi A1.

Stock Android ; Dual cameras ; Fast fingerprint scanner ; Good performance

No water- or dust-resistance ; Missing NFC ; Lack of OIS on the cameras

The Xiaomi Mi A1 offers stock Android and a dual-camera setup for under £200, making its minor omissions easier to stomach. This is the phone with which the Android One initiative should have launched.

Xiaomi Mi A1 review

 

Xiaomi and Google team up to conquer the budget sector

Excellent dual-camera setup ; Stock Android with timely updates promised ; Powerful hardware for the price

No NFC ; No water or dust resistance ; Screen is a bit washed out

The Mi A1’s clutter-free, Android One-certified experience combines elegantly with tried and tested hardware, while the dual-camera capability gives you a premium feel on a budget. Xiaomi ticks all the right boxes with this affordable but feature-rich...

Xiaomi Mi A1 review

 

Xiaomi and Android One. Two great things that together are so much more. Check out our review of Xiaomi's first Android One phone - the Mi A1 is the mid-range smartphone Europe has been waiting for.

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...

Xiaomi Mi 5X review: Popularity contest

 

The Xiaomi Mi 5X was unveiled as the first smartphone to carry the new MIUI 9 out of the box. But its key feature lies elsewhere - the Mi 5X has a similar dual-camera setup to the flagship Mi 6 model. Add Redmi Note 4's chipset and pricing, plus the...

Xiaomi is here to remind you about the Android One initiative

 

Did you forget about the Android One initiative? Xiaomi's inexpensive new phone, with its rear cameras and surprisingly powerful CPU, is here to remind you.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Smartphone Review

 

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...

excellent camera for photos ; very good workmanship ; bright display ; good color reproduction ; very good voice quality

high power consumption ; headsets do not always work as they should ; no image stabilizer ; only mediocre battery life

The Mi A1 is the first smartphone from Xiaomi that is not delivered with the in-house MIUI operating system; it comes with stock Android instead. Since the Mi A1 is part of the Android One project, you are ensured of quick security updates and an...

Xiaomi Mi A1 Review : Android One just got familiar

 

Xiaomi Mi A1 is the first in a wave of Android One smartphones to take advantage of Google's new price point target. That might not sound exciting to the average citizen, but to the future of low-cost, high-end smartphone enthusiasts like myself,...

Overall value far exceeds price ; Camera quality exceeds price ; Build quality exceeds price ; Pure Android with Android One ; Comes in three colors

Camera software doesn't rotate properly (pending fix) ; Design replicates iPhone 7 Plus (might also be a pro) ; Not available in the USA (yet)
