In today’s modern world, people are either asleep or connected! This line is quite appropriate to this era’s people. With the advancement of technology, mobile phones have become a part of our daily life. Our life is nothing without mobile phones. From a needle to home automation, mobile phones have controlled our lives from last few years.
A leading mobile production company of China, which has set its legs in India, has again hit the market with a beast. Under the 20,000/- segment, the Xiaomi Mi A1 has landed well with this product as well. Xiaomi, a privately owned company that develops, designs and sells smartphones is based on the Android OS.
Xiaomi Mi A1
Xiaomi Mi A1, launched in September 2017 is having a display of 5.5 inches touch-screen display and above that a resolution of 1080X1920 pixels!
Size and SIM
With 4GB of RAM and 64 GB internal memory, the external memory of A1 is 128GB. Now, this time also the SIM slots are hybrid. (Hybrid Slot: where Hybrid Slot can also be used as Memory card slot or as SIM Card Slot. Eg: Xiaomi Mi A1 (SIM Slot + Hybrid Slot) So here either you can use dual SIM cards OR (single SIM with memory card) 2.While some phones comes with Dual SIM Slots and Plus a Separate Memory Card Slot.) It has Dual SIM slots with GSM support and Nano-SIM support.
Fingerprint Scanner and Strength
The Xiaomi Mi A1 has a powerful fingerprint scanner that can also be used for scrolling now apart from locking and unlocking the phone and apps. It comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to improve its durability and strength.
It comes with 3 exciting colors. Dashing Black, Beautiful Gold and Sexy Rose-Gold!
In India, it would cost you 14,999/- and then the price will vary according to the RAM and ROM.
Well, the camera is the USP of this phone. A dual back camera with 12 Megapixel and a front with 5 Megapixel. The dual camera has the portrait mode and perks of having a portrait mode is that you can actually make your photo look like a DSLR shot photo!
The Xiaomi Mi A1 is powered by 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.
With the stock UI of Google – Android 7.1.2, it is a good news for them who were not that much satisfied with the UI of Xiaomi.
As always, the battery life of Xiaomi seems to be never ending with a 3080mAh which is not removable. It weighs 168 grams.
When we talk about the connectivity, it supports Infrared, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, OTG, USB, 3G and $g. The 4G support is Band 40 used by LTE networks in India. A 3.5mm Audio Jack but, but, but there is no FM available. So, all those radio fans will have to sacrifice with the traditional FM. And, it does not come with the earphones/headphones. That means you will have to spend some extra to enjoy the 3D sound experience.
The sensors that are present in the phone are, Proximity sensor, Compass Magnetometer, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Ambient light sensor. To my surprise, the temperature sensor is absent!
