Meet Mi A1 - The Best Android One Device in the Market

Yesterday Xiaomi announced Mi A1 in India. This was the global launch of the re-branded Mi 5x which will be shipped with Pure stock android directly from google. Yes, they partnered with Google to bring back the glory of the android one project. They call it - Created by Mi and Powered by Google.

Like the near-identical Mi 5X announced for China recently, the Mi A1 has Qualcomm’s increasingly ubiquitous Snapdragon 625 processor — which we’ve found to strike a great balance between performance and battery life — and a fairly standard 3080mAh battery. The phone charges over USB-C, unlike Xiaomi’s more budget-orientated offerings, and the company is even including a custom 380V charger that it says is designed to handle India’s frequent power spikes.

The handset has a dual rear camera setup 12MP rear cameras and a 5MP front-facing shooter. One of the rear cameras is a wide-angle lens while the other is a telephoto lens. The smartphone's bokeh effect is called the 'Stereo Mode' and the images captured in this mode left a lot to be desired.

But the Mi A1’s most distinctive feature is its software: it runs stock Android, not Xiaomi’s own MIUI layer, and is part of Google’s Android One program. Android One launched three years ago with a focus on India as Google aimed to codify the Android experience for low-end smartphones. It hasn’t been a huge success, but Google undoubtedly wants to expand the program to a wider range of products to ensure that people continue to have access to the latest versions of its software and services.
