. 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 .

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)..

Anonymous, 03 Aug 2018yes Sony Sensor same as MI6X, superb camera if only you're using GcamExcept that it's so small 1/2.9" that their Redmi Note 5 AI could be better than this.

Because there's a lot of people still need that, it saves your budget a lot, also you could saves your files there (most people are still got a bad connectivity on their home so cloud wouldn't help), while nowadays OSes and Apps are so big.
is sd card really a big bummer? it's slower than phone storage and unreliable anyway. 2 of my SanDisk sd card died suddenly and lose all of my data inside. never used sd card after that. 64gb is enough for casual use or some gaming anyway
