Why is the 6gb version only in India?
Sam, 21 Aug 2019Ok, can someone explain me, why the hell they put 720p display? Battery is enough huge to deli... moreIt's because they are using in-display fingerprint scanner, which apparently can't be used with ips lcd. As for using a low resolution display, I think because they wanted to cut cost.
I will pass on this phone.. better luck next time MI A series .. anything less than 324 ppi is not acceptable for me..
Ok, can someone explain me, why the hell they put 720p display? Battery is enough huge to deliver decent battery life even on fhd+ resolution. If the reason is price, imo ips lcd fhd+ will ne better than 720p oled. Can't understand, really...
I have got this phone last week, and I am really satisfied with it. I have read a lot of reviews about it before buying, and there was a lot of criticism regarding the display. So I went to the mi store and tested it myself. Yes you can easily notice the lower resolution if you put it next to a FHD screen. However, the colors are very punchy and nice, and you can only see the tiny pixels if you put it too close to your face. I also didn't have any trouble reading text, and it wasn't blurry as some reviews claimed. I highly recommend that you test it yourself before making a decision.
The performance is really good and snappy with android one, and so is the battery life. I am able to get one day and a half on a single charge. I usually do a lot of texting, phone calls and some social media browsing throughout the day. However, I am a light user, and I don't play games. So battery life highly depends on personal usage.
The in-display fingerprint scanner is good, and it works most of the time. You will need some practice to learn where to put your finger/thumb exactly (finger print icon turned off), and for how long to unlock. Also I noticed that if you press the power button first and then put your thumb/finger, it will unlock faster. It is not the fastest compared to other in-display fingerprints, but at this price point it is great.
I am still experimenting with the cameras, but overall photos are very nice. This is my first triple camera setup, so I am having a lot of fun with the wide angel camera and the depth sensor. I am still learning about the 48MP camera, and the other modes of photography on this phone. The front camera is good as well, and it also has that depth feature. However, when I take a photo, the shutter takes like a second. I found that very slow. I hope that this could be fixed in a software update.
The build quality is super good, but it is a little bit heavy. It is also much thicker than its predecessor Mi A2. It has an led light on the top left corner, but it only works when charging. I thought it would also function as a notification led, bummer. The speakers are mono, but they are very loud and clear.
All three colors are beautiful. Personally I went for the white variant, because it comes with a different color silver sides. It's a new phone, so finding a tempered glass screen protector is difficult at the moment, unless you order one online. If you can't order online, use Huawei P30 screen protector temporarily, which is almost identical.
Again, if you are considering this phone, go to the store and take a look. The display is not as bad as it reads on the spec sheet, but a lot of consumers might not like it.

Can i record screen when i am playing game 1080p (FULL HD) in this phone that have 720p screen resolution????
I used mi a1 and mi a2, but I bought a mi 9 SE for myself before the mi a3 was even announced. I bought recently a mi a3 for my husband and it arrived last night and honestly we couldn't tell the difference in the display at a glance. sure, it is different, but you have to get really close to the screen to notice and that's not how one uses a phone anyway. The phone is snappy and the display is punchy, haven't had time to test the camera or battery yet.
Karthik, 20 Aug 2019This phone now faces premature death due to launch of Realme 5. RIP MI A3 :(This phone's specs is better than the realme 5 but not the pro version. check it yourself. the only deal breaker is the price
Should I go with A3 or 9 SE? What's better in terms of cameras, battery life and more user friendly?

I bought Mi A3 after twice went to the store and have a try on it. Been considering between this and Mi 9T, but lack of memory slot, IR blaster and the price difference made me choose the A3. Battery is superb, camera is great and the performance is good.
I personally think that the screen is not bad. Sure it is noticeably difference compared to the FHD screen but it is sharp enough for reading, browsing, videos, gaming, etc. Agree with GSMArena that you should go the store and try it yourself.
The only complaint from me is that the camera took a while to snap a photo, like around 1 sec after press. Hopefully it is only a software issue.
Dee, 19 Aug 2019Its good because screen is only 6.0". 720p at 6.0" screen is like 1080p at 6.5" or bigger sc... moreHell no man. You cant compare it like that. 6 inch HD+ is about 280 ppi while 6.5 inch FHD+ is about 400 ppi. The higher the ppi, the sharper the image quality.

720p at 6.0" screen is like 1080p at 6.5" or bigger screen.
You will see difference if you use microscope but if you use eyes only you cannot tell.

720p at 6.0" screen is equal to 1080p at 6.5" screen.
They made the screen smaller to make 1080p experience on Mi A3.
This display is only about Snapdragon 215
I got this phone today, and to be honest the display was a bit irritating at start, but now I got used to it and it is still totally worth it for that price.
My four months wait for a New Xiaomi Android One phone to replace my Mi A1, has ended with a decision to not to go for a 720p display.
No body gives a damn to, whether it is Amoled or LCD .
Seems Xiaomi is intentionally giving space to other brands/manufacturers
