no, 17 Jul 2019 Many of you are really disappointed for having HD+ display and SD665 for that price and sayin... moreTrue, it is an upgrade for existing Mi A1 owners in terms of performance, chipset, bigger battery while keeping the essentials of the Mi A1 such as 3.5mm jack, microsd slot & IR Blaster, Android One experience.
Price tag and screen killed this phone honestly. New design, camera, and bigger battery are nice. Processor is decent I guess but that screen? Nope, 250 euro is far to expensive for that.
I mean, it's got a decent Camera, Microphone, and a decent SoC for the everyday, but....
Great Selfie Cam
Has only USB 2.0-C
Low Drop Durability
No front-firing stereo loudspeakers
...there's definitely worse options out there.
And who knows, we might get a Xiaomi Mi A3 Pro model, which might add OIS, QSD 730, and +1080p amOLED display. We'll just have to put up with the Low Durability and Poor Speaker performance though :(
Compare this to Mi 9t for roughly the same price, lol... This is one of the (if not the) worst phones for the money Xiaomi ever made. Hopefully thats not the sign for things to come in the future.
It should be called Mi A3 K. K because Mi has killed the A series with these specs
I might consider this phone if it has no ads like every other Xiaomi phones...
Yikes... Why Xiaomi neglecting european market?? This is ridiculous, i can get mi 9t fot 250 euros now imported with global rom. Would have bought it earlier just didnt like how it looks, but looks like nothing better is coming out anytime soon. Mi A3 is retarded, you can by cc9 with global rom for same price...
Dreamrunner, 17 Jul 2019Err... Xiaomi, why? You already have a brilliant mid-ranger in the form of the Redmi Note 7 wi... moreMan, you don't understand anything. A large group of people will look at Xiaomi only with android one name, to hell with their OS even for $5.
Love the Community, 17 Jul 2019Android One and HEADPHONE JACK!? YES! What now jack haters who thought that the phones after M... moreJust f-ing remove that jack, tired of it already. You people pussying about it too much. This phone is a disappointment, 100%.
Definitely for the moment I will miss this model.
I'll either wait for a pro version or look for some other brand with Android One
250 euro for this SD665 HD+notch fail means "real" Mi A3 aka Mi A3 Pro will be even more expensive.
Don't you guys glad you can finally stop waiting for A2 successor? RIP
Xiaomi A1 had 1080p screen, 3.5mm jack and USB-C.
With A2 you were forced to choose 3.5 or USB-C (Lite or not)
With A3 you get again 3.5 and USB-C together, but you lose the screen.
Why, Xiaomi? The best Android One from Xiaomi is the A1 from 2017, only thing you gain 2 years later and 100 euro more is a little bit better chipset, but same RAM, worse screen?
Android One and HEADPHONE JACK!? YES! What now jack haters who thought that the phones after Mi A2 won't have jack?
Many of you are really disappointed for having HD+ display and SD665 for that price and saying that this phone is really underwhelming , not worth the money and not an upgrade over the Mi A2.
This Mi A3 has many more upgrades over the Mi A2.
It has much better design and build quality , Mi A3 just looks gorgeous and elegant compared to iPhone-clone Mi A2.
A3 has Super AMOLED display with much smaller bezels and slightly bigger than A2 making it a perfect sized phone for 90% of people.
It has SD665 which is a minor upgrade in terms of speed and gaming ( 5-10% better overall performance than 2.0GHz SD660 ) but quite major upgrade in AI integration ( 2x better than SD660 ) and power efficency ( 25-35% better efficency than SD660 ).
It also has better , more versatile cameras ( main+ultra-wide ) that can take better photos and videos than A2 with Camera2api compitability for Gcam use.
A3 also has much better selfie camera with larger sensor , more MP , has better pixel pinning making it a selfie champion for its price.
It has much bigger battery with faster charging support ( this is a massive upgrade over A2 ) and has USB-C 2.0 vs 1.0 found in A2.
It has 3.5mm jack , SDcard slot that were missing from the A2 and still retains the same great software experience and IR sensor.
Yes, it has HD+ display which is quite disappointing and SD665 isn't that big upgrade and we can blame Xiaomi for going with these decisions but this can't prent you from buying this device and enjoy it.
If there is no upgrade from cc9e then why this device is launched for more 100 euros !!!
