Astonishing Design

The Mi A2 comes with 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen that provides a great experience with a high-resolution touch screen that is resistant to falls as well. It is equipped with 5.99 "FHD + 18:9 full-screen screen with PPI 403 and contrast ratio of 1500: 1. Mi A2's 2.5D curved glass display is very attractive and is the best companion for reading, gaming, and watching videos. Not only this, the glass is durable as well since it comes with the topmost durable Gorilla Glass 5.

The Front

On the rear side of the phone, the camera is placed in a vertical side followed by a fingerprint sensor in the middle same as the previous Mi A1 that makes the phone looks gorgeous as well as classy.

The Rear

On the right side of the phone, there is a volume button followed by the power button to lock/unlock as well as power on/off the phone. The sleek design of 7.3 mm makes the phone stand out among other competitive smartphones.

The Right

On the left, there's nothing much but a sim tray slot that supports double slot for the nano-SIM card. The lesser the components, the more elegant the device looks!

The Left

The top side of the Mi A2 comes with a Mic and IR Blaster. The pleasant look of A2 from the top is breathtaking, isn't it?

The Top

Talking about the bottom, from the left first comes the speaker followed by a USB Type C port and then the microphones. No headphone jack this time. But don't worry you will get a connector from USB Type C to Audio jack 3.5 so you can listen to songs without having any hiccups!

The Bottom

Remarkable Android One OS

Just like the Mi A1, Mi A2 also comes with the Android One OS that makes the phone from Xiaomi and powered by Google. The Android One is a heart of the A2 that come equipped with the latest innovations in Google AI. This means that it can adjust itself according to your needs and help you to do things more easily in your day to day life.

App Drawer!

Mi A2 accompanies the Android 8.1 out of the box and Google guarantees to give Android P soon! Also, much the same as the Android One Smartphones Mi A2 will get updates for next 2 years with the goal that you can remain up and get an opportunity to early access new and creative highlights ideal from Google's production line! Like Mi A1 you get Google Photos lets you securely store a boundless number of photographs and recordings and access them from any gadget for nothing. It's great to store photographs with boundless distributed storage, on account of Android One for the same.


Magnificient Camera

So here comes the best part of the story. The Camera! Mi A2 also is equipped with the dual camera setup with 12 MP + 20 MP with AI based on the Sony light sensors and the large aperture of ƒ / 1.75 which will allow you to choose the best one according to your configuration. It also comes with cool features like a defocused background in Flash portrait mode with a single color temperature, light-enhancing technology, HDR image technology, Panorama mode, Burst mode, Facial recognition and Beauty mode 4.0 with AI Group selfie.

Take clearer photos during the day, thanks to the 12 MP lens and its 1.25 μm pixels. Also, get brighter photos in low light situations with the help of the 20 MP lens and the 4-in-1 super pixel, based on pixel binning technology. That's not all, the ultra-large 2 μm pixels are 4 times more sensitive to light. Exciting isn't it? Then let's take a look at some great shots through Mi A2.

The Adreno ™ 512 high-performance GPU generates virtually real images with the speed up to 2.2 GHz for consistent and robust performance.

How can I stop myself from trying the all-new Asphalt 9 on the Mi A2? And trust me, you won't believe the Mi A2 handled the game so well that even if you don't like to play games, it will insist you try at least once. Mark my words!!!

We tried the Antutu Benchmark scores and the results are something that will make you love the phone more. Check out below the Antutu Score of the Mi A2.

Mi A2 comes with 3010 mAh non-removable battery which supports QC 4+ fast charging and USB Type-C double-sided charging interface that can last more than a day and a half while in moderate usage and trust me, you can rely me on that! Check out t he battery stats in the moderate usage with a bit of gaming, video playback, and music! The results are seriously MIND BLOWING!

While in moderate usage, the Mi A2 gave me battery like of 1 day 23 hours and 19 mins with SOT of 6 hours and 10 mins, isn't it extraordinary?
