That last comparison of back cover case shows how much Xiomi is trying to justify for the increased price of MI A2 with cons of not having 3.5 jack and sd card support. They do fear that their Note 5 pro is still a better over all option in India.
Xiaomi is LYING.
The Mi A2 is NOT better than the Mi A1:
Mi A1 -----------------------> Mi A2
with headphone jack --------> NO headphone jack
with FM radio capability ------> without headphone jack; therefore FM radio NOT likely
3080mAh battery ------------> 3000mAh battery
USD $190 ---------------------------> USD $300
Narrow width 18:9 aspect ratio ---> wider width 16:9 aspect ratio (better photo/video viewing)
No case + USD $119 savings -----> free cheap $2 case + $0 savings
max 64GB internal storage + up to 400GB micro sd card expansion --------> max 128 GB internal storage: NO EXPANSION

Lol, yesterday before announcing the price they felt the need to justify and justify, then, bang, absurd prices. At the end of the day Xiaomi is just another greedy company. Little by little their prices will match all the other overpriced brands.
Mi A1 --> Mi A2
Headphone Jack --> NO Headphone Jack
Microsd card slot (Hybrid) --> NO microsd card slot
There Xiaomi, fixed it for you. Look at how retar*e* Mi A2 is.
To whom it may concern:
These are the suggestions below I can give right now.
Suggestion 1: Stick with / Buy Mi A1 as it already comes with BOTH a headphone jack and a microsd card slot (albeit a hybrid one) though the specs are slightly dated if you are willing to live with that.
Suggestion 2: Consider Zenfone Max Pro M1 for the same stock android experience with a HEADPHONE JACK & a MICRO-SD CARD SLOT & a HUGE 5000mAh battery if you don't play heavy games and can forgive the camera quality though it is better than many budget phones out there. And the PRICE is LOWER than Mi A2.
Jamesschwarz987, 25 Jul 2018Wait, since when Xiaomi phone has an optical zoom? Do you mean that so-called Lossless zoom or... moreSince Mi 6, higher-end Xiaomi phones have had 2x lossless optical zoom, including Mi A1. Apparently Mi A2 has lost that status.

How narcistic are some of these commenter... moreCareful, that argument can be flipped.
"How narcissistic are some of these commenters? Because THEY use wired headphones, everybody else needs them and the definitely can't understand that that jack can be used for some other stuff they may not have."
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2018That jack is not just used for headphones alone! How narcistic are some of these commenter... moreMy answer was related to wired vs wireless headphones, and the loss of quality or not. But whatever
cheapsk8, 24 Jul 2018Optical zoom --> no optical zoom failWait, since when Xiaomi phone has an optical zoom? Do you mean that so-called Lossless zoom or an ordinary DIGITAL ZOOM (to be exact)?
Riz78, 24 Jul 2018They missed out one! Design: iPhone 7 → iPhone XDude.. I think you need spectacles.. IPhone 7 still keeping IPhone trademark "Big Bezels" & IPhone X with Notch.. where can you saw this at A2?
Barricade, 24 Jul 2018If you own an expensive pair of headphones, you probably don't need to buy a mid-range phone.Unfortunately the only high-end phones on the European market "with" a headphone jack are Samsungs. Which I personally hate. 😣
Yamite, 24 Jul 2018plus headphone jack, nfc and zeiss opticsYeah but sadly no IR-blaster.
That IR-blaster helped me out several times when at friends and family.
If those idiots ay HMD would just implement that too in their phones I'd buy a nokia phone in a heartbeat. But now they're just run of the mil phones just like anyone elses.

How narcistic are some of these commenters? Because THEY use no wired headphones, nobody else needs them and they definitely can't understand that that jack is also used as aux-output to a car stereo or home hifi-system. Djeez!
