For those who have issue with multiple duplication of contacts in their dailer as this phone add in gmail, sim, whatsaaps, phone contact.
What you can do is goes to the apps drawer & brings contact apps (the light blue circle with half human body logo) then drag it next to dialer apps, just tap the icon then tap top right for setting, merged the contact, after that all the contacts will show only 1 name instead of multiple same name.
This is will also look similar to Touch Wizz & MiUI which most of us familiar with.
sethu, 12 Oct 2017While charging phone is getting too much of heat,is it normal ?Yes it's normal if you've installed many apps as these apps runs on background and occupy ram
mr.z, 13 Oct 2017mi a1 good or not??Very good. It's display is very bright and go very dim as well. And it's design is a reminiscent of iPhone 5s.
Nekib, 14 Oct 2017Front camera is good or bad.Front camera is good for facebook and stuff but that's what phone cameras are used for anyways. For professional photos you need dslr.
Haseri, 14 Oct 2017Moto g5s plus or Mi A1If you like unfiltered android then mia1 should be a better pick but if you like moto's customized skin ans camera centric phone then moto g5s. Personally i like mia1 better because of the gauranteed android updates and it's bigger display.
Despite the battery percentage can be activated thru system UI tuner by long press setting icon in notification panel, but the percentage is in the battery lcon & a bit difficult to see especially under sunlight, just go to Google play & i install a battery widget (choose those without ads or in apps purchase) this will make it much easier to read the battery percentage.
Same goes if you install a Torchlight widget, easier than having to look for it inside notification panel.
Hope this helps, enjoy your MIA1 over the weekend.. cheers
Ellimist05, 14 Oct 2017I sell my mi 5 and change to mi a1... No regrets 😊Is the front camera worse than Mi5 ?
Latest update gives MiA1 the EIS everyone asking for, just go to the video editor to stabilize it after you have taking a video & noticed it's shaking, the software will automatically reduce the shaking effect, though not as convenient as OIS, but it's good enough for phone with such a price, hopefully Google@Xiaomi will add FM Radio Widget in their next update since the phone already have FM Radio module in the hardware, all we need is a widget to activate it rather than need to activate it thru hardware test module.
MiA1 just getting better & better.
Safwan-m, 13 Oct 2017Would it be a good decision to switch from Mi5 to Mi A1?I sell my mi 5 and change to mi a1... No regrets 😊
there is one problem I have, the microphone is sometime VERY weak, other side cannot hear me. this is big problem for me.
Nick01, 14 Oct 2017Best phone i ever had with xiaomi phone, no heating issue, signal is good, camera is fine but ... morePhone hardly heat up, highest recorded temperature is 33 degree celcius, seem like Xiaomi phone heat issue may result from MiUi, battery life is excellent, leaving it overnight 8 hours merely a drop of 5%, 4G signals very good (this proves that it's India Jio problems, as other telco doesn't have connections issue).
Gaming very smooth, GPS locking very fast.
Only complain is Screen not bright enough if auto brightness been set, photo taken in low light condition is a let down, Video a bit shaky since no OIS.
Lack of some basic apps like FM Radio despite the phone has FM Radio hardware, No voice recorder apps.
Best phone i ever had with xiaomi phone, no heating issue, signal is good, camera is fine but in portrait mode is awesome, front camera worst i think (i dont really need it btw), charging is fast, Android One more faster than MIUI (My Opinion).
Very good phone just got it from AliExpress, and it's stock Android! R.I.P. my Nexus 6P
