"Audio output through the jack is one of the loudest around with excellent clarity. The speaker loudness is excellent, as is its sound quality."
really? GSMArena team decided to conveniently skip mentioning the whole white noise hissing part? I'm a mostly satisfied A1 user but A1, just like its xiaomi snapdragon 625 siblings, is down to earth not recommended for portable hifi experience unless you specifically use high-impedance receivers. It plays the melody and yes it can drive the loud volumes but you cannot escape the white noise hissing whenever nothing is playing or the volume is quiet. I get around it by just ignoring it during noisy work commute or using bluetooth.
again, I'm not saying A1 is bad. Its just that this review seems to skip rather noticeable parts of the phone experience. If you are a prospective buyer, camera and audio should be two things you will have to compare A1 with bigger-name brand smartphones before you put your money into.

This is the second XIAOMI phone I've tried (first one was a Mi4 on which the screen gave way after 1 year and after replacement of the screen all sorts of other issues started appearing). So my (albeit relatively small sample size) experience with XIAOMI is not great. These folks have serious quality control issues. Save your money and look elsewhere.
Any takers could say how is the build quality compares with Moto G5S plus?
On par or one is significantly better than other?
Disadvantage for mi a1
1.fornt just 5 mp camera only 8mp only correct
2.Not head phone other head phone not set
3.contact manually only link option
4. Network coverage small problem
5.no file manager & gallery
6.battery back power 3080only
1.Rear camera perfect
2.display good quality
3.very fast touch
4.very fast process

This has ought to be one of the most interesting phones ever made by Xiaomi! It certainly makes one of my top recomendations if good and decent mid range phone with stock and Google Android support is what you´re after!

bought MI A1.
happy with it except
in selfie mode i found it was worse than G3 i had.
wideangle in selfie is very very poor.barely u can fit 3 people.
2.its auto lock is bad.i have set 20secs,but every time i put in pocket,its dialling.
3.I set autocorrection off.but its just not off.
4.in G3 i could take selfie touching the screen anywhere.
this doesnt have that.
5.In G3,i could crop photo and it would save both.this deletes the original and saves only cropped .
