The Mi A1 (Review) was the first smartphone from Xiaomi to be a part of Google's Android One programme. It had powerful hardware for the price like most other Xiaomi smartphones, but ran stock Android instead of Xiaomi's own MIUI. While the device did not generate the same amount of buzz as its Redmi siblings, it did find some takers. Xiaomi launched a successor a year later in the form of the Mi A2 (Review). While Xiaomi Mi A2 was arguably one of the best camera smartphones in the sub-Rs. 20,000 segment at the time, it had a few shortcomings. It lacked a 3.5mm headphone jack, and storage wasn't expandable. Xiaomi has now launched a successor to the Mi A2, aptly called the Mi A3. This new model makes up for the shortcomings of the Mi A2, but has Xiaomi skimped on anything else? We review the Mi A3 to find out.

Xiaomi Mi A3 Summary

The Mi A3 is the third smartphone in the series of Android One smartphones from Xiaomi. It sports a 6.08-inch display with HD+ resolution. We found this to be low considering that the predecessors of this device, the Mi A1 and the Mi A2 had full HD+ panels.

The display puts out less than 300 pixels per inch and the device does not let you tweak the colour settings of the display. We found the panel to be slightly boosted for our liking. The Mi A3 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC and comes in two variants, 4GB RAM with 64GB of storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB of storage. You do have the option to expand storage further as the phone has a hybrid dual-SIM slot. 

We found the Snapdragon 665 to be powerful enough to handle day-to-day tasks and also games like PUBG Mobile without any lag or stutter. The Mi A3 packs in a 4,030mAh battery and has a USB Type-C port. It delivered good battery life and we could go on for close to a day and a half without needing to be charged. Xiaomi claims that the Mi A3 has support for 18W fast charging but it only gets a 10W charger in the box.

Xiaomi offers a triple camera setup on the Mi A3 consisting of a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor with a 118-degree field-of-view, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, it has a 32-megapixel selfie shooter. We found the camera performance to be quite good in different lighting conditions.

    MoulikD (Jul 21, 2019) on Gadgets 360
    Processor must be in Snapdragon 7 series and Display of 1080p. These two are the major drawbacks. Disappointed :(

    S Shriprasad (Sep 12, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    THE MI A3 CAN HAVE A DEDICATED SIM SLOT IN WHICH WE CAN USE 2 SIMS AND A MEMORY CARD ALL AT A TIME. OTHER FEATURES ARE ALL PERFECT. CAN INCLUDE 3.5mm JACK WIRE IN THE BOX. OVERALL I WOULD GIVE 5 STAR RATING. YO REDMI MI A3. A MUST BUY PHONE FOR ALL FEATURES AND SO CHEAP PRICE

  • Overpriced for the display and processor
    Manikantan Ananya (Aug 21, 2019) on Gadgets 360
    Hi MI all the fans are disappointed as the mobile is overpriced for the hd resolution and processor offered. Realme is now launching good phones are compared to your phones now. If you continue like this you will lose lot of dedicated MI fans in the long run.
