Best choice in budget world

Tahir215 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

So far so good. Waiting for Android 8 Oreo update. Quite a solid cell in this price. Portrait mode is fun to use. It would have been great if it had optical image stabilisation or even Electronic stabilisation.

The first Xiaomi Android One device

toma_ichuaidze has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

It's very affordable phonefor everyone,but price is Directly proportionate to quality.

Phone has metal body which is very pleasant in hand but it scratches and slides easily so you should be careful with it.Screen is 2.5D glass and you should consider this before buying tempered glass.It has one colour led notification which is also disappointing.
Display is awful with it's faint colours,it also lacks saturation.
System is fast overall, gets updates quickly,but lacks customization because of stock Android and for me it's very sad(personal opinion).
Camera is good at daylight photos,has very good portrait mode, captures 4k ,but at night quality of both photos and videos doesn't have EIS or OIS .
Battery is very good but didn't lasts as other Xiaomi's 4100mah phones logically.I am heavy user and scored 6h average of screen on usage on Android 8.0 (browser,some gaming,internet, brightness 30%).it charged in about 2 hours before they add quick charging in 8.0 Android,but it's fun because overall time decreased for 10-15m .

Finally i say that for stock Android lovers this phone is dream and it's the best in price category.

Good budget phone with Stock Android

XIaomi Mi A1 is very good phone with 4/64 Config and Stock Android. The build quality is good and is has a good price.

The only bad things that I experience is when I open several apps and want to switch, it's sometimes lag/freeze when I swipe in the opened apps list
