Shanti Dope, 03 Aug 2018Well it's a base standard for low budget devices now. Flagships definitely do need to upgrade ... morewhy upgrade to 128Gb min in flagships? so we can pay more than we need? i really hate the trend phones are taking. 6Gb RAM min is retarded, never had more than 2Gb occupied in my phone, 4Gb is more than enough. My phone have 64Gb and have more than half free. If you own a flagship, probably you will have Spotify or any other music account. so music takes 0 space. Photos I take as many i want and still don't see the end of the space in the device. Apps I install whatever I want still more space than I need. Ive 100Gb google drive account that takes care the rest. If I was retard to have 2000 apps on my phone or 50Gb of music and take 10000 photos a day, yes probably 128Gb min is needed. 99% of people will not needed, that's why there is 64Gb versions and 128Gb/256Gb version..to people that don't have a clue what is a cloud and how to use it. the worst, is people that defend it..don't own a flagship..and never will...they just like to talk about it...
acemang, 03 Aug 2018yes it's true there are better value in hardware in some old 2016/2017 flagships. the only pr... moreYou have a point, but for most users it wont matter. Xiaomi has gotten a lot of bashing online for their slow and then faulty updates for the Mi A1.. so there is no guarantee that this will be better. And many change their devices so frequently, at least in the western part of the world, that it doesnt really matter if you dont get the next Android version, because your next device will probably have anyway..
How they compare Xiaomi mi A2 to nokia 7 plus? Here in my country, i guess all Europe is about the same, Xiaomi mi A2 is 249/279 euros. Nokia 7 plus is 399/450 euros.
That 60% more, at least. with the money that costs nokia 7 plus you can have a much better Xiaomi, Asus or One plus, even older flagship model from last year is a better deal than nokia 7 plus. Nokia 8 is 310 euros here and is a much better phone than nokia 7 plus.
Please be objective and compare apples to apples. they have the same chipset, yes, but 60% more money is in another league of prices...next time compare it to One plus 6 or Samsung 9, if you don't bother to compare in the same price range.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 201864G is not quite enough.Well it's a base standard for low budget devices now. Flagships definitely do need to upgrade to 128GB at minimum instead, unless there's an option for SD Card slot, be it hybrid or dedicated.
On a side note, this is a vanilla Android phone, so it should have more storage available due to less cr*pwares from OEM's skin.
Anonymous, 03 Aug 2018Even 2016 and early 2017 are way better than this
. And cheaper in some cases alsoyes it's true there are better value in hardware in some old 2016/2017 flagships.
the only problem is software not hardware. mi a2 is going to have updates for a long time and with smooth navigation since it's vanilla android. the 2016/2018 almost all not even have android 8.0 or android 8.1, never will and android p even worst. if you don't care about software, yes it's true there are better phones out there for the same amount of money. if you care about updates, there a fewer options than you think.
Was waiting for this phone but now no thanks, will have to consider another brand now.
Disappointing, Xiaomi had a win er with the Mi A1, all they had to do was improve the specs, mainly processor, camera and screen size, instead the produced a dud. No thanks.
Actually I'm truly disappointed from the performance thanks to let us know and to look elsewhere

The difference is that it supports qc 4.0 only in India while it supports qc 3.0 everywhere else in the world. But in no part of the world it comes with a quick charger in the box

I have phone (p9 plus) with great visibility under sunlight. Maybe that sound nice. What you didn't expect is the phone become so hot and unusable because the LCD crank the brightness to the max. It is so hot even I can feel the heat when I put it in my pocket. Thats why I will set the brightness to half under the sunlight. Maybe it's hard to see the screen. But hey, at least it don't burn my hand. Sunlight visibility is not always a pros
Jamesschwarz987, 03 Aug 2018That's it. But actually SD card slot existence would never affect users like you, so why not? ... moreWhat I don't get is so many people seems to focus on lack of SD card. It cannot store app anyway unless you root your phone. I take a lot of picture and video with my phone. I have a lot of games and app too. In the end of the day, I still have 19gb free out of 64gb. So why people just focus on there. I mean, it still nice to have SD card reader if you need one. But I surely don't miss it. I have change my phone to mi A2, and I think it's still a great value for what it's offer
For 200 bucks you can get the Meizu Pro 6 Plus with amoled screen, super camera, same battery life as this, and a built in audio DAC that sounds amazing .
I am done with phones that has a screen that cant be seen outside in the sun.. no thanks no matter what price .

So when I look at price way way better devices come into play.. just bought a HTC U Ultra for my girlfriend.. 227 Euros thats about 263 bucks !!! Great audio, amazing display, front placed fingerprint sensor/home button, simply beautiful design, better than expected batterylife, and even cheaper than the Mi A2 in the EU (with 4 gb/64gb)..
