2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 22+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Very well built, and well designed
  • The fingerprint reader on the back is in a natural position to comfortably unlock with either index finger

Display

  • Contemporary, tall 18:9 display, brings the Mi Android One series up to modern standards
  • Brightness levels for the display could have been better - it's not the easiest phone to use under sunlight

Software

  • One of the best parts about the phone is of course the fact that it is part of the Android One series, which should mean guaranteed Android updates for at least 2 years + a stock, simple version of Android, with no unnecessary bloat

Performance

  • Butter smooth performance backed by a powerful Snapdragon 660 chipset, hardly seen at this low a price bracket

Camera

  • Stellar set of dual cameras on the rear - arguably the joint best at this price point, at par with the excellent Redmi Note 5 Pro - take nice photos in good and low light alike, and the bokeh shots too come out well
  • Very good selfie camera, with good bokeh shots - overall one of the best selfie cameras in this price bracket

Audio

  • Very loud loudspeaker, one of the best in this price bracket
  • No 3.5mm jack, so if you want to use your existing standard-jack headphones, you will need to use an adapter (included in the box)

Battery

  • Fast charging support
  • The battery life is decent but could have been a bit better - it will last you the day with moderate use, but it's not as good as the best of the competition

More

  • On the whole, the Mi A2 is a good, solid phone in this price bracket and you won't go wrong with it - it will compete strongly against the likes of Redmi Note 5 Pro (a bit cheaper, but doesn't have stock Android), and Honor Play (faster, better for gaming, but loses on the software)
