What a letdown, for me at least..
All I ever wanted from the A2 upgrade is, the SD710 along with GPU. Im fine with 1080p IPS screen, no headphone jack, and expandable SD card.
That is it. Not much isnt it? XiaoMi.

That's because they make money from custom ui. And also android one means that they need regular updates which costs even more

If they start charging or earing more money from MIUI phones (on which Xiaomi claims only 5% profit) just to favor Android One devices which many people prefer, every start using Android One over MIUI phones which leads to loss for Xiaomi as it cannot make money from Stock Android post sale.. eventually it starts charging more on both MIUI & stock ROM phones. In my honest opinion, it's not at all a bad device for that price. Not many stock Android or Android One phones whith such good specs are sold. And 720p screen is not a big deal for casual phone users, moreover, paired with that battery - it should give a decent backup and cameras are great & given the clean rom & low res. display on the device, the processor is capable handling tasks & run games smoothly. So, it's a personal preference, whether you want better display & high performance or good battery life and Android One device with constant updates and stock ROM.

I was waiting for this phone, hoping it'd be good. But 720p resolution on a 6 inch display for that price is ridiculous. Also the SoC is underwhelming. Idk what they're thinking!

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2019Those aren't Android One phones (yeah, yeah, custom roms and bs)Android one sucks. Less features+bugs

With Android One they dont get any money back so they have higher price. It's like game console that are sold in loss and get more money back from the subscription for online play and from the content.

Even 5inch screen versus 6 inch isnt anything on so small screens. I can understand if you talk about something 32 inch screen TV to have 720p then we can say it's really bad over 1080p and even 1080p seems to be not enough for most for TV resolution so they need 4K where they have 5% content that is on 4K
This game isnt made for gaming so it does not matter the 720p. It has good enough for daily driver that has good battery that last long plus it has android one

While this phone isnt made for gaming and all the other things can do very well and have big enough battery to last you a week without charge. I think it has good specs for the price. 720p oled screen isnt something to whine about. Up to Iphone 8 all the apple phones were max 720p anyways with the most premium price ever and nobody complained about there resolution like you kids now.
I dont see on what part this phone will lack in performance for making videos and pictures that have nothing to to with the screen resolution. Browsing a web and so on wont matter to anyone. My last phone Lumia 830 on 5 inch screen had 720x1280 screen and i didnt have any issues on reading from it or anything annoying.

I dont get it, for those prices one can buy a Xiaomi mi 9 SE in Asia. Which seems much superior. Seriously, One week ago i was in normal electronic store here in middle europe and they sell Xiaomi Mi Mix2s 6/128GB for 299e. How ridiculous is that, not even mentioning Pocophone etc...?
