Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite review

15 August 2018
Xiaomi wanted to expand its reach beyond its few official markets and it had to do just one thing - give up on MIUI. It all started with the Mi A1 - Xiaomi's first Android One smartphone, and now not one but two sequels are coming to replace it - Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite. Our Mi A2 review is done, so today we will be taking the Mi A2 Lite for a spin.

I love this phone. At first I felt guilty about using it in public since the price was so low and the quality is incredible! I got the 4mb and added the 64mbmemory. Not just any SD memory but the much faster Sandisk UDMA memory cards which are 5 times as fast as a SD Class 10 memory card which the manual says to get and use. This less than $200 smart phone might be the greatest deal anywhere as it is a workhorse and it is so cheap, that if/ when it breaks, just recycle it or sell it on ebay as "Slightly used" :) Seriously there are many sellers and buyers on ebay that will want to buy it but I thought in 2 years of hard work, it would have died by now, not so, it is going strong and I already bought it's replacement which is again a Xiaomi but a better model with a better camera and larger built in memory and 6 GB RAM instead of the 4 GB I have been using. I am just waiting for the Mi A2 to die which It will not do! You got to try Xiaomi. Just get a cheap cell phone and play with it. You will be amazed at what less than $250 will get you! The 4G is fast, so fast that I have to so they can believe it. Instant directions and any thing else. Who needs 5G when this 4G set up correctly, is lightening fast. I am using Red Pocket Cellular that I bought a prepaid 1 year subscription for cheap per month like less than $30/mo paid 1 year in advance but you have to buy it through ebay.com. It runs on the same identical network as AT&T and has excellent call abilities and clarity...like the person is sitting right next to you when a friend that has a Xioami phone talks to me on my Xioami phone. Samsung has got a big rival in front of them.

I am using Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite for almost 4 months already. So far, i've never facing any issues or problem while using it. I also never facing any lagging while playing games (I do not play PUBG, but I play Clash Of Clans). The camera is good, the internet connection is fast, battery is long-lasting and overall it's so good. I also typed this comment using Mi A2 Lite. Lmao.

I updated my redmi 6 pro to 11.0.7.0, through OTA, likewise I updated my A2 lite to android 10, without any issues, working fine, accept for my redmi 6 pro since updated to miui 11, is slow, the miui 10 is faster. But on my redmi note 4x on miui 11 is still very ok and preferable.

Mi A2 Lite or Nokia 5.1 plus ?

I really don't mean to be nasty, but do these reviewers realize that some people still buy smart phones for the purpose of making and receiving phone calls, amongst other things? It's all about cameras and audio and practically nothing is said about core functions such as dual sim management, wi-fi capabilities etc.

There are issues with Sim 2. When it is enabled for data only and text and calls is left for Sim 1, incoming calls don't get through on Sim 2 and texts cannot be sent from Sim 2

Folks,

Needed your advice here:

I'm planning to buy a phone for my wife under Rs 10,000. My wife's usage is basic and no gaming. I have shortlisted the following two options:

1. Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro (4GB/64GB) Rs 9,999
2. Xiaomi Redmi 7S (3GB/32GB) Rs 9,999

Both are currently priced the same on Xiaomi website here in India. Xiaomi Redmi 7S has a better processor, but lower RAM (3GB) and lower memory (32GB). The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro has a slower processor but higher RAM (4GB) and higher memory (64GB).

Which of the two phones would perform better for basic/simple usage?

Thanks
