Last year the Xiaomi Mi A1 was a star in our reviews, the conclusion page in particular. We could recommend the Mi A1 as an alternative to literally every smartphone - from the cheapest droids, to the most expensive top dogs. But its reign is over as the maker is launching not one but two sequels - brace yourselves for the invasion of the Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite.
Today was the global launch of the Mi A2 series - the wraps were pulled off in Madrid, Spain. The two Mi phones are integral part of the Android One lineup, and Xiaomi gets to sell them worldwide. That's yet another boost to Xiaomi's global expansion.
The Xiaomi Mi A2 is a significant upgrade over the Mi A1 - it has a larger display, more powerful processor and graphics, a better camera setup focused on low-light photography, a 20MP selfie shooter, faster charging, newer Android OS, and promised fast upgrades for at least a year.
Here, check those specs:
Unlike some other brands' Lite models, the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite isn't just an affordable model stripped down of the premium feats. The Mi A2 Lite, while indeed cheaper, has its own spirit and cool kicks to show off and you can tell it right away.
The Lite has a trendy notched screen with minimum of bezels, mostly aluminum body, still relevant Snapdragon 625 chip, there are microSD slot and audio jack available, a notable 4,000 mAh battery, and there is still a dual-camera setup on the back, though of a different kind. Let's check it out.
Xiaomi gave the notched screen - a feature often considered as premium - to the Lite, while the Mi A2 is getting a larger and perfectly rectangular one. That's a very smart choice - make the Lite feel cooler with that controversial notch, while keep the regular A2 out of that debate.
You bet we have spent some quality time with the Mi A2 phones and our impressions come right after the jump.
I cannot install update version .tell me why
How can you consider a file manager and a TV controlling App bloatware. Those are the first 2 apps I would download. And they would probably have Ads. For them to include those is a BONUS. The crud that AT&T and Samsung put on their phones......
Um, I think you just said that the Mi A2 Lite would kick booty
