How camera perform in this phone?
I have the MiA1 (2 years), MiA2 (1 year) and now the MiA3 (1 month).
IMHO, i find the pro/cons of the MiA3 are as follows:
>Smallest dimension of all 3. I like how easy it is to operate with one hand compared with the other 2 and able to fit into jacket/shirt pockets easily.
>Best battery life of all 3. Lasted me 3 whole days on several occasions and easily a 2 whole day based on my usage. The other 2 lasted me 1 whole day and rarely 2 whole days.
> finger print scanner is poor. It failed to recognise 90% of the time. I have tried resetting my fingerprint so many times, yet it fail to recognise 90% of the time.
>Screen resolution: The only time the poor screen resolution is noticeable is when viewing low resolution photos. The pixels roughness are noticeable (especially the waves in the default beach scene used as wallpaper in AndroidOne). Viewing the same low resolution photos in the MiA1 or MiA2 didn't reveal those rough pixels as with MiA3. But the rough pixels is not apparent at all with better resolution photos or videos. The same lower resolution screen is also allowing a much better battery life.

At the very least they should have named it something else.
For those saying the iPhone 11 is 720p you are wrong, it's 828p, besides that, apple customers are the most abused smartphone users of all, just you all read around, they aim to shamelessly keep taking money from their customers at every stage of "ownership", hopefully the android world will never see anything like that.

AvoneJ, 11 Oct 2019Efficiency SD665, performance SD660. But keep in mind all SD 660 phones are built on 1080p pho... moreno if you look for speed comparisons the MI A3 with SDM665 loads heavy apps faster than the Note 7 with SDM660. Could be because of Android One though
Answer man, 11 Oct 2019To your comment, the hybrid slot will take both a sim and sd with a little modification. Look... more720p screen in 2019 is totally unacceptable, even old phone like Samsung J7 Prime get 1080p super amoled, screen is the No.1 important criteria for phone as we interface with our phone thru the screen.
If Xiaomi short change it customer, we have every rights to give them hell time, only that there will learned there lesson & give customer what there want.
mi A3 Lite
Ichigo, 09 Oct 2019Please which one is better for efficiency and performance sd660 or sd665?Efficiency SD665, performance SD660. But keep in mind all SD 660 phones are built on 1080p phones. In gaming, the mi a3 should handle the fluidity of graphics better since it has a lower resolution.
Farid.x47, 04 Oct 2019And again unfortunately another phone with hybrid sim slot from xiaomi. what should i do if i ... moreTo your comment, the hybrid slot will take both a sim and sd with a little modification. Look on Youtube how to do it. I did it in one of my samsung phones. Just FYI. BTW to all the haters of 720, loook at apples screens that eveyone loves. Take all the goodies that this phone offers for a great price and you won't cry when it gets dropped of the pavment. Good luck to you.
Display is very bad. It is bad not because resolution, but because implementation. At the moment I have Samsung J5 2017 (720p Amoled, same PPI), and compared to it Mi A3 display looks very bad, almost unusable for text reading (PDF, WEB). Glad I checked it in person before placing order.
Abhishek, 09 Oct 2019Not very slow. Using it since 2 days. Display is really bad I must sayY,?Display is nt gud,plz advice me
HYPR, 10 Oct 2019I just got one for a friend and the screen is fine. I had to stop and remember about the 720p ... moreYes but it is still noticeable and annoying. Compare with Mi A2 and you will see the difference.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2019I agree with your points but I've seen Mi A3 in a shop and it's screen quality is very bad.I just got one for a friend and the screen is fine. I had to stop and remember about the 720p to then check it out. You can see it if you stop and look. Otherwise goes unnoticed. People making a big deal out of it, but is fine for the money. The other features make up for it. On the whole a good snappy phone.
Patrick Star, 02 Oct 2019is this phone fingerprint sensor slow?Not very slow. Using it since 2 days.
Display is really bad I must say

Please which one is better for efficiency and performance sd660 or sd665?
For those saying SD660 is more powerful in terms of gaming, Yes it is very slightly better than the SD665 but what you guys are forgetting is that this phone has a smaller screen resolution and thus makes gaming on this phone more fluid. Battery consumption will also be better on this phone 11nm vs 14nm, not to mention less heating as well.
