User opinions and reviews

Sort by:

4 years and 11 (almost) months. Going like great gun. Excellent Call Quality.
If a phone goes that long on performance, Definitely company manufacturing it going to loss.
So Xiaomi droped the ANDROID ONE series like a Hot potato .... to remain in relevance.
Alas ! No more A1 series wonders from Xiaomi with clean fast interface + an SD-Card slot.

    It's a decent phone. It first I hated it so much, and even reverted to Android Oreo 8.0 to get rid of some bugs in newer updates. After a while, it held on pretty good. Comparing it to a similar phone Huawei GR5 2017, the huawei lost its luster quickly and became really slow, the A1 slowed down but not as bad as the GR5. The A1 however is not a spectacular phone and the marketing around the camera is deceiving. It's a budget phone and the camera will take nice photos only in very well lit preferably sun-lit situations. At night or indoors, the camera is not good at all.

      I've been using it for 4 years too (2018-2022) and it still works fine. At first, the battery was an issue for me but I got accustomed to recharge it every day now and then. I haven't installed yet Lineage OS but for me Android One is still a very good one without major issues. Some apps are starting to show some buggy issues since some months ago so I think I'll have to upgrade from next year at least. Android 9 was the last version it has and its support upgrading stopped in June 2020 so I don't recommend it to buy it as second-hand now unless it was a gift and only use it for phone calls and menial tasks.

        Very good phone. I've had it for 4 years and I use it constantly. It fell on some stones and the screen cracked, but I didn't replace it and it worked with a broken screen for 4 years. Now its starting to lag and will slowly stop working. I am buying a new phone now, but this one was amazing!

          Worked like a charm although the battery started draining in a couple of days, so they changed my battery with a new original (supposed), after 6 months the battery lasted like a day and i noticed the screen got pushed up the frame so the battery must have been inflated and i had to turn it off so it wouldnt explode. Guarantee was for only 3 months so they didnt cover it up.

            The best phone i have , and still using it today . Battery is still decent even though its 4 years old. I love the stock android experience, very smooth and no lag. I hope Xiaomi will bring back Android One in the future phone, the best software on android ever. MIUI is very unstable and buggy.

                        N abbas khan, 13 Aug 2021Nice battery back up ya,keep this mobile ,nice model am usi... moreBro! I would say to keep this one only as present all mobiles are just same with different branding unlike before Android 9 models,as all present are with 8,12 gb of Ram still laging and throttling issue as well overrated screen which breaks by a slight slip from hand. Also after purchasing service is difficult as well ain't economical so all Android 9 below version mobile are dedicated and ain't AI so far better and smooth experience

                              I'm still using my Mi A1 here in 2022 (4yrs) which still works fine, Xiaomi never released another great android one after this device.

                              But it's look time to change for another mid range set, probably Sam A52s. I'll be missing android one experience -_-

                                    For all the people asking to release Mi a4 or something similar... You always have the option for Havoc OS, /e/ or Lineage OS and its pretty much the same smooth experience. Xiaomi just couldn't give 2 cents about android one anymore
