Anonymous, 15 Jul 2018tried Gcam, not much different, low light photos still very noisy, light years behind Samsung,... moreWhat kind of a gcam are you using? I've been using Arnova8G2 ones for months now, noise is barely noticable; especially compared to the stock cam which is a blurry mess

Anonymous, 15 Jul 2018tried Gcam, not much different, low light photos still very noisy, light years behind Samsung,... moreThe advantage of F2.2 or F2.6 Lens is that the Depth of Field in the Images is better than that of F1.9 or F1.7 .
For the images of a group of persons /subjects having differing distance from the Lens , the one with F2.2 or F2.4 is always better. It is the quality of sensor or the quality of the material of Lens that is more important.
Still didn't get June update. And it's middle of July. What is going on ???
secret admire, 14 Jul 2018use gcam for the camera :)tried Gcam, not much different, low light photos still very noisy, light years behind Samsung, even low end phone like J series take better photo than MiA1, one of the worst camera i ever use, even my 3 years old A5 take better photo.
Xiaomi should stop using low end lense, there need to equip future phone with F1.7 & F1.9 ience & not F2.2, F2.6 lense.
Yes after 8.1 update strange happens.....internet 4g becomes automatically on...even if I off 4g data ...it's internet connection always on....it's not good update from xiaomi ... hopefully they will fix these issued in July update n get a stable 8.1 update
roy, 13 Jul 2018hey guys. i am quite a heavy user playin games like pubg. and also a photography enthusiasti... morenot good for those who serious about taking photos, the F2.2 & F 2.6 give rather dark photo especially indoor & under artificial lighting, even during daytime when sky is dark, I tried taking photos under shade & the results lack of details & very noisy.
For heavy & graphics intense gaming is a bit choppy & some minor lag, probably the GPU is on the lower end type, you can test it with Antutu 3D the graphics are choppy.
Hey guys am from India and I still didnÂ’t get any Oreo 8.1 update. Did u all get it officially oh downloaded the beta version? Please let me know...
adeel, 14 Jul 2018same is the case with me, i am unable to make outgoing calls while my mobile data is running e... moreI would always advice those MiA1 still running on Nougat 7.1 .2 not to update to Oreo 8.0 or 8.1
My nightmares began once o update to Oreo 8.0, the GPS & Network start giving lot's of issue.
Latest Oreo 8.1 cause my mobile data cut off frequently, I took out the Sim & put it into another phone & the data instantly connect & no cut off, then I swap it back into MiA1 again the data keep cut off. (this is in the middle of the capital city where Signal is very strong).
Narasimha, 30 Jun 2018Useless and worst update. Got my all sms and Jio network is not working. Only Airtel is workin... moresame is the case with me, i am unable to make outgoing calls while my mobile data is running esp 4g. This is really very disappointing for me because i had heard plenty of good words for this model. my phone was already updated on Oreo and it began problems while using 4g.
hey guys. i am quite a heavy user playin games like pubg. and also a photography enthusiastic .. like to take photos of scenery and portrait mode.. my question is is this phone is the best for my usage. or there are other phones priced almost the same as this like redmi 5 plus.. or else?
Vaitila, 12 Jul 2018If you need to take a picture, buy it on your J7 Pro, if you need it for a simple use, , do no... morein my country the difference between J7 pro & MiA1 is 20 euro, We have a better model J7 plus selling 40 euro more than MiA1, so the price differences are marginal.

O... moreIf you need to take a picture, buy it on your J7 Pro, if you need it for a simple use, , do not take a lot of pictures, buy xiaomi mi a1 (Samsung cost more because it's samsung,
difference of 80 euros )
Bought this phone 2 days ago. For its price the phone runs very fast. But dont expect the gps to be as good as that on samsung devices because its not. Battery life isn't great either. The fingerprint sensor is pretty good though.

Often i need to take photo under low light & artificial light conditions.
The price is quite close.

I've picked xiaomi mi a1 among these phones.
