Xiaomi Mi A1 in review, Xiaomi's incredible first “Pure Android”

Xiaomi has always been characterized by the incredible value for money of its terminals. Thanks to low production costs and advertising spending that is light years ahead of other competitors such as Samsung or Manzana, is capable of planting its top of the range for just over 300 euros.

In the case of the mid-range, where the fight is even more fierce, let's say that it has not been so easy. On the one hand, due to the Android customization layer that all the terminals in the house include as standard, the MIUI. A system more similar to what Apple offers on iOS, and that many users have not finished convincing - others simply adore it.

But that seems that it is no longer going to be an excuse, since in its new star terminal for the international mid-range, the Xiaomi Mi A1, the system will have a version of Android Stock, that is, pure Android.

Analysis of the Xiaomi Mi A1, pure Android and a camera that raises passions

The Xiaomi Mi A1 is Xiaomi's first serious attempt to make itself known worldwide, and for this it has partnered with Google to offer your first terminal with Android One. As far as specifications are concerned, we are basically facing a Xiaomi Mi 5X, a phone that measures up in all aspects, which is not bad at all!

Design and display

The Mi A1 has a screen of 5.5 inches with Full HD resolution, a pixel density of 403 PPI and shine of 450 nits. A good screen for a terminal that also has rounded edges, 3 touch buttons on the front and a fingerprint reader conveniently located on the back. It has been presented in 3 colors: black, gold and rose gold.

Power and performance

As far as hardware is concerned, the Xiaomi Mi A1 presents a Snapdragon 625 Octa Core 2.0 GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space expandable in 128GB by card.

If you already have good wickers, the fact of using an operating system that fits like a glove makes the set well above other phones with similar characteristics.
