I ordered my yesterday from banggood for 172 euros, 4 gb ram and 64 gb memory, hope it's gonna be good choice. I do my research around 2-3 weeks and i choose this one.
Guys i'm struggling right now, i want to buy a new phone and after narrowing my choices i come to 2 options: redmi 5 plus and mi a1. i lived in indonesia and redmi note 5 pro hasn't released here and probably will not be released until at least for 6-12 months and waiting that long might not be a wise decision. so what should it be for me? thanks.
I bought the Mi A1 phone in December 2017. The phone updated to 8.0 Oreo on January 27, 2018. No other updates since then. The phone is great with the exception of NO LTE.... I live in Alabama and thought maybe T-Mobile wasn't up to speed. But I have traveled to Toronto, Buffalo NY, and Boston Mass.. NO LTE ....would not of bought the phone if I had known.
Gigatron, 12 Mar 2018So A1? :)Well Redmi 5 plus has 18:9 display better than mi A1 and miui 9 with android 7 bigger battery 4000 mAh and micro USB on the other hand mi A1 runs stock Android 8(Oreo) is part of android one program and this year will receive the next version of Android but has an older 16:9 display smaller battery 3080 has USB type c and both have same cpu-gpu so really read some reviews on the net and make your choice on what phone will suits your needs.Personally I prefer stock android with regular security patches so I own mi a1
Bwoah, 12 Mar 2018My bad the redmi note 5 pro has better CPU and GPU the redmi 5 plus has same CPU and GPU as MI A1 So A1? :)
Bwoah, 12 Mar 2018I love my MI A1 but right now if I had to buy again I'd take Redmi 5 Plus for better CPU and G... moreMy bad the redmi note 5 pro has better CPU and GPU the redmi 5 plus has same CPU and GPU as MI A1
Gigatron, 12 Mar 2018This or Redmi 5 plus? Thank youI love my MI A1 but right now if I had to buy again I'd take Redmi 5 Plus for better CPU and GPU but also I will miss the stock android of mi a1.
I have been using MI A1 for about 3 months now and after a healthy usage of the device I an posting this review. First positive thing is that MI A1 is a value for money phone and you would hardly find any other phone with these much specs in this price range. Now lets move towards the pros and cons of it in detail
1.Being an Android one phone it has a lot of Google phone features and that is a real gem
2. The dual rear camera is a quality one with bokeh mode as well as potrait mode.
3 The performance is very impressive because the phone doesn't seem to work slowly even with heavy gaming and multiple tasks
4.Fingerprint is real quick .
1.The 3080/3000 mah battery seems to be below par in this range with 4000 mah being the trend these days
2. Low light performance of the camera isn't that great
3.Screen resolution of 1080*1920 is bit let down and also the ratio 18:9 isn't fun
4.Device tends to heat up at times
Further the power button and volume keys being too close also create a problem more often than not, hangs up sometimes, and battery is a big let down but overall performance and the day light camera performance as well as the video capture and play are very good plus the striking looks as well.This phone is a go to phone un this range and the being an Android one phone it is a boon to have.
Hope you like the review. Thanks!!!

the specs are good.... but i doubt about the battery capacity... as an online driver... i need a larger battery capacity...
Redmi 5 plus has a larger battery capacity... but.... i doubt about the specs a little bit... and redmi 5 plus is so hard to get
Proximity sensor issue still exists with oreo rom. Xiaomi please please fix it otherwise this phone is not useful at all
This is the worst product mi has made as compared to mi note 4. A genuine advise to all of u not buy this phone as even after Oreo update it lags most of the basic features. It hangs and most of it's inbuilt app like contacts, call log etc behave peculiar.
