Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite Highlights
Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is the kind of phone that one doesn’t see very often. It is among those phones which we own and then after using many phones, we remember about it like the good old Nokia 1100. Mi A2 Lite is a sole product of its time, released to meet the consumer demand in all possible way. But it is still called a “Mi” phone which sounds small. Some say it is the way of Xiaomi, “humbleness” which bought them this far.
Mi A2 Lite comes with a metal back and a Full-View smaller notch display. One may turn the notch off in Mi A2 Lite while watching videos, browsing or using apps. The display is a Full HD+ one with 432 ppi which is an excellent deal for the price. There is no display protection in this device.
The battery is a 4000 mAh Li-polymer one which is capable of providing up to 19.5 hours of talk time according to Xiaomi (depending on settings of course). The battery is supposed to perform even better with Android One and let an average modern-day user go through two days with one single charge. The 5V/2A charging is the first generation Quick Charge technology from Qualcomm. It charges the battery 40% faster than conventional phones.
The best thing about Mi A2 Lite is its performance. The combination of 14 nm Snapdragon 625 chipset, Adreno 506 GPU combined with 3 or 4 GB RAM, octa-core CPU and Android One is made to provide superior performance in this price range. Android One also ensures the next 3 Android updates. It means one can use it for a much longer period without security or outdated issue. It came with Android Oreo 8 and has already got the Pie 9 update. The Android Q update should be available in 2019 and in 2020 it should get the Android R update.
We have seen great results from both 5 MP front and dual 12+ 5 MP back camera. Daylight shots are much better than we expected. We were delighted after seeing the samples of 5 MP front camera and it can even record Full HD videos. Primary video recording is stable with Gyro EIS. Night shots are satisfactory and a fair deal for the price.
Mi A2 Lite has a dual SIM option of which only one SIM will support 4G at a time. There is a dedicated MicroSD slot. There is a fingerprint, face unlock, OTG, FM Radio etc. features as well in this phone.
