Xiaomi Mi 5X review: Popularity contest


The Xiaomi Mi 5X was unveiled as the first smartphone to carry the new MIUI 9 out of the box. But its key feature lies elsewhere - the Mi 5X has a similar dual-camera setup to the flagship Mi 6 model. Add Redmi Note 4's chipset and pricing, plus the...

Xiaomi is here to remind you about the Android One initiative


Did you forget about the Android One initiative? Xiaomi's inexpensive new phone, with its rear cameras and surprisingly powerful CPU, is here to remind you.

Xiaomi Mi A1 Smartphone Review


Pure Android at a fair price. The Xiaomi Mi A1 is the European version of the Mi 5X. Equipped with LTE band 20 and Android One, for a low price, it offers not only regular and timely security updates but also a two-year update warranty on the security...

excellent camera for photos ; very good workmanship ; bright display ; good color reproduction ; very good voice quality

high power consumption ; headsets do not always work as they should ; no image stabilizer ; only mediocre battery life

The Mi A1 is the first smartphone from Xiaomi that is not delivered with the in-house MIUI operating system; it comes with stock Android instead. Since the Mi A1 is part of the Android One project, you are ensured of quick security updates and an...

Xiaomi Mi A1 Review : Android One just got familiar


Xiaomi Mi A1 is the first in a wave of Android One smartphones to take advantage of Google's new price point target. That might not sound exciting to the average citizen, but to the future of low-cost, high-end smartphone enthusiasts like myself,...

Overall value far exceeds price ; Camera quality exceeds price ; Build quality exceeds price ; Pure Android with Android One ; Comes in three colors

Camera software doesn't rotate properly (pending fix) ; Design replicates iPhone 7 Plus (might also be a pro) ; Not available in the USA (yet)

Xiaomi Mi A1 review: the mid-range device to beat?


The Xiaomi Mi A1 delivers plenty of goodness for a mid-range smartphone, with the disappointing dual-camera setup being the only major negative.

Between stock Android, premium looks and a solid battery life, the Xiaomi Mi A1 certainly makes a case for being a mid-range champion. The photography arena is the main casualty though, but few brands have dual-camera phones for R5000 in the first...

Xiaomi Mi A1 review: the perfect budget phone?


The Android One pitch is passable, but the Xiaomi Mi A1 is a very capable device on its own and comes very close to being the perfect smartphone for those on a budget.

Great build quality and premium design ; Stock Android experience ; Very good performance ; Excellent price

Limited availability outside of India ; Camera falls apart in low-light ; Unoriginal design

Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One ROM ported to the Mi 5X smartphone

Xiaomi Mi A1 is an Android One phone with stock software, dual cameras


As , Chinese phone maker is launching its first phone to ship with nearly stock Android software rather than the company's own MIUI user interface. The is a smartphone with a 5.5 inch, full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM,...

But I wouldn’t be surprised to find stores that are willing to sell you the international model in the States… just don’t expect it to support all US network bands.

Xiaomi Mi A1 may be the company’s first phone with stock Android


Chinese phone maker Xiaomi has earned a reputation for offering affordable phones with strong specs and attractive (and sometimes ) design. But while Xiaomi's phones run Android, they ship with one of the most complete skins you'll find on any...

Xiaomi Mi A1


Android One coming of age?. Xiaomi Mi A1.

Stock Android ; Dual cameras ; Fast fingerprint scanner ; Good performance

No water- or dust-resistance ; Missing NFC ; Lack of OIS on the cameras

The Xiaomi Mi A1 offers stock Android and a dual-camera setup for under £200, making its minor omissions easier to stomach. This is the phone with which the Android One initiative should have launched.
