MI A2 is one of the most popular mid range smartphones with good looks, build quality, better performance and camera and it is available in two variants. One is with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage and another one is with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. This smartphone is a complete package but you have to consider some things which you may not know about this smartphone before buying it. So, here we are giving you a complete review of this smartphone with both positive and negative things about it which will be key factors for you to decide buying of this smartphone.
This smartphone has an aluminium back and a 5.99 inch Full HD+ display which is more than enough for an average user. The thickness of this smartphone is only 7.3mm so that it is very easy to hold and operate. It is one of the slimmest smartphones in the market. But there is no headphone jack and memory card slot so you will have to carry a headphone jack adapter always.
MI A2 has got Android 8.1 Oreo which can be upgraded to Android 9.0 Pie and it has got Android one, so this smartphone has complete stock android and you will get updates quickly as google releases them.
This smartphone gives you Snapdragon 660 processor with 4 or 6 GB RAM options and hence, the performance of this smartphone is top notch. You can play heavy games on this smartphone easily or can perform multitasking easily without lag. So, if you want to buy a smartphone especially for gaming, this smartphone is for you.
It has 12+20MP camera at the rear and the image quality with this camera is just stunning. Mi has also improved the quality of camera and it can even take photos with better details even in low light. Its portrait mode is also very good and the subject stands out very well from background. You can record 4k videos from the rear camera.
The front camera is 20MP and it has got flash so that you can take clear photos in even low light. The portrait mode on front camera is so good just like rear dual camera on many smartphones.
So, if you are going to catch a lot of photos with your new smartphone and you want perfect photos, this smartphone is for you.
This smartphone has got a 3010 mAh battery with quick charge 4.0. But you will not get quick charger in the box. You have to buy it separately. Its snapdragon 660 processor requires a large amount of power and so, its battery drains quickly. You will hardly get battery backup for a full day and we wish Mi should have given a 4000 mAH battery to this smartphone.
As mentioned above, the battery backup of this smartphone is not good. Many customers have complaints about its battery backup. Secondly, there is no headphone jack and you can′t keep a headphone jack adapter with you always and this becomes a load on you in other way. Third thing, there is no micro SD card slot and FM Radio on this smartphone.
Advice before buying:
So, all things about this smartphone are OK. But if you are comfortable with above three things and are ready to keep charger and headphone jack adapter with you everywhere, you should buy it.
