Xiaomi Mi A1 review

12 October 2017
With the Xiaomi Mi 5X confined to the domestic Chinese market soon after launch, its double, the Mi A1, is called upon to boost the brand's global presence. Steered by Google, Android One is full of potential and Xiaomi's looking keen on getting its message across a wider audience and, of course, making some profit in the process with the Mi A1.

Don't laugh at me, but seriously, I like to buy used smartphone :)

Now, which one do you choose (both are used) between Mi A1 (Red edition) vs Redmi Note 3 Pro (Kate) ?

In my country the Redmi Note 3 Pro is about US$40 cheaper.

Thanks for the input

If the display is important to you I'd advise you to look elsewhere. It's passable but there's a distinct "washed out" feeling to it, almost like a filter put on it. Unfortunately as it is stock android you can't adjust color temperature either (like on MIUI, tho that has its limitations too in this regard) as it has no such option, maybe fixable by using a custom ROM, I'm not aware of it. Out of the box tho - NOPE! I liked the speakers it has though, compared to the OnePlus 5T it sounds clearer though it doesn't go as loud.

  • AnonD-753227

The audio quality is poor. The speaker sound is cracked and distorted. The sound from the headphone jack is awful: bass and mids are distorted which makes it unusable for music. I have not tried bluetooth yet. Quite disappointing so far. Even my old Vernee Thor comes across like an audiophile's dream compared to this.
