Just got my hands on the new mi a1 and all i can say about this phone is 'gorgeous'. No lags, everything goes smooth and camera works like real DSLR especially in good lighting and not any bad in low light also. I can even say the phone is cheap for its specs, should have been more than just $250. Good job xiaomi you've got me #mifan
Hey guys, need some help comparing the lenovo P2 to the MI A1. first things first, the camera how does the lenovo P2 hold up against The MI A1 in lowlight conditions and in good light?, how's the front camera in the same conditions?. How's the battery on the MI A1 let's say i'm playing RR3 for 30Mins and everything in the background is closed how much battery life will decrease?. now since the MI A1 is running stock android the performance will only be small between the Lenovo P2 am i right?. should i consider the Redmi note 4X?. and the display i'm a media junkie so how bad is the display between them?, is it that bad on the MI A1 can you please tell me?. and design which phone has the better design i need you're opinion on this. please don't be biased i really need to pick the right phone and this is a huge decision, thank's in advance peace. :))
After the 75.7 mb update, Android system is consuming more power than the screen
anybody got any creaking issue when pressing the back or the sides.
MT, 04 Nov 2017Image seen like dslr focus or normal???dslr like shots have no problems. Potrait shots are working great in daylight. There is problem with 2X optical zoom. Earlier when we used to click on 2X button, then telephoto lens was working. But after some updates, now when we click on 2X, wide angle lens digitally zooms . Also in potrait shots in low lighting conditions we are unable to increase White balance to+2.0
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2017You cover the wrong lense, Zoom only work with the Telephoto lense...lolI know which lens to cover. Try it yourself. in manual mode the telephoto lens is working. Just try to click an image with 2X and see the info, it shows aperture value 2.2 while telephoto lens is 2.6 . 2X worked in previous updates . Currently it is simply digitally zooming wide angle lens.

Anonymous, 04 Nov 2017This is not a selfie centric phone like Huawei Honor 9i, Vivo V7+, Oppo F5, so don't expect it... moreSorry...i mean they should make a balanced phone like 13 in rear and 8 in front both with flash because im not a fan of dual cam set up but i really like Android One with this price point so im Asking how is the 5 mp camera does it work in low light because it have f 2.0(some youtuber says don't even ask about the front cam in low light) so i'm in trouble because i do a lot of selfies also i do alot of Video calls..so is it worth it..sorry again
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2017I wish MiA1 come with Snapdragon 835 & 8GB of RAM 128GB ROM, dual 21MP real camera front d... moreNo it does'nt mean that way yes mi a1 is a great phone..my opinion that they should make a balanced phone like 13mp rear and 8 mp front,3000mah and all the thins in my last comment that's all i'm really not a fan of dual cam thing but i really like Android One (at these price)...By the way Is the 5 megapixel is worth it for the price planning to buy one even there's no Nfc(not going to buy g5s plus because of some people like you say mi a1 is better..And i hate Lenovo)
JayVeee, 04 Nov 2017Hello Mi A1 user..Does the 5 megapixel Worth the price...Like it's 2017 almost all midrage pho... moreThis is not a selfie centric phone like Huawei Honor 9i, Vivo V7+, Oppo F5, so don't expect it to have high MP front camera, Android One aim at developing countries mid low range market, so absence of NFC is acceptable (mobile phone pay is not popular in these counties).
MiA1 main attraction is Pure Android with timely updates, Dual camera with Bokeh effect, Zoom telephoto lense, long battery life, good quality audio.
So if this is not what you after, then there are other choice like the Moto GS5+ you mentioned, but prepared to pay more.
