The performance still good in 2 years operation. Still good to playing modern game like Call of Duty and PUbg. But the multitasking isn't good.

But you claim to be using it from 2.5 years. How is it possible?
Anyway it's a great phone and can go on for at least a year more without any issues. Till then it will be time for 5G compliant phones. I would suggest to buy any new Android One phone ( Nokia would be reliable) in 2020.
Till then have great time with mi A1.
Till this day I have had no problems with it.

Everybody who has problem with gps try this.
Kick your phone upper backside where is gps antena. I ve found this advice on some forum and it really works. It seams it's a hardware problem. I was long time looking for solution.Tried everything. Even install custom rom and nothing helped.For info I'm on pixel rom. And what really matters my phone was never dropped. It could be a bad contact on housing.
Please somebody confirm or I m wrong.

Rajinders, 06 Oct 2019GPS connection has been a consistent issue with Mi A1 for the ... moreMy friends who own a MiA3 & a Mi9T complain the same

MiA1 has very snappy GPS back in 2017 when i first bought it, the issue begin after November 2017 update & get worsening after Oreo update on 31st December 2017, since then the issue never able to resolve till date, certain month update improves it slightly & then it get totally useless, that's why i suspect it's due to the firmware update.

GPS connection has been a consistent issue with
Mi A1 for the last 1½ years. And most of us were blaming the updates that were received during the course of two years period, but to me it looks like a hardware issue on this device.
Will someone enlighten us about GPS situation on subsequent Xiaomi devices.....

M10, 04 Oct 2019What would be a great replacement for this device? Im already us... moreNokia 7.2 will be a good choice if you want Android One phone, MiA3 is a lousy choice as it come with 720p screen & very slow screen finger print sensor, no sd card slot.

What would be a great replacement for this device? Im already using it for 2.5years and im looking for a replacement or using the Mi A1 for another 2 years.
