The Xiaomi Mi A3 is a phone designed for Android purists. It has some modern features attached to it, like the in-display scanner. Hence, it is recommended for people who wants a pure Android experience at a low price.
Xiaomi Mi A3 is another fascinating handset by Mi with stock Android. Priced at Rs. 15,999, this phone is a delight for Android enthusiasts since it comes with all the essentials desired by a midrange user.
With excellent performance and battery, the Xiaomi Mi A3 couples camera and stock Android experience in one model. If you are an Android purist, this phone has everything to keep you satisfied.
Xiaomi Mi A3 does not have a striking design to it. However, it is quite lightweight and can be held comfortably in your hand. The back panel is very reflective and looks glossy, but because of that, the phone tends to attract a lot of fingerprint smudges. At the bottom, the has a USB Type-C port which is quite modern, however, not a stand-out feature. The phone is quite sturdy in general, but design-wise, it does not have any surprise attached to it. While the phone does not come with a fingerprint scanner on its back panel, it does have an in-display fingerprint scanner which makes it modern. The in-display scanner is quite snappy.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 arrives with a 6.3-inch screen with an IPS LCD and a Full HD+ resolution. It has a tear-drop notch which can be distracting for some people, though overall, the display remains quite immersive due to the presence of the thin bezels. The colour of the screen is quite good and bright. The viewing angles do not pose any problems either. However, in the age of AMOLED screens, the phone does not provide a deep colour pattern which limits the immersive ability of the phone. It has a Gorilla 5 Glass protection, which is excellent too.
The Mi A3 arrives with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset. On top of that, it has an Adreno 616 GPU. It has a 4GB RAM along with Stock Android, which makes the phone quite fast. The 700-series Snapdragon processors are a mid-range processor which acts as a bridge between the top end 800 series and the mid-range 600 series. It keeps the multitasking breezy, and even gaming turns out to be a smooth affair. You can also run high-end games like PUBG efficiently on this handset, even at high settings.
The Mi A3 arrives with a 48MP primary camera along with a 5MP supporting camera. It is similar to what the Redmi Note 7 Pro offers. Plus, the primary camera tends to combine four pixels into one to get an extra edge in low-light shots. In daylight, the camera functions well and can provide a clear image. The colours pop out well and are kept sharp and natural. Low-light shots are good, but there is a bit of grain present in it. In case of the front camera, the phone has a 16MP selfie camera which works well and can click decent social-media worthy shots.
The previous Xiaomi Mi phones invited a lot of criticism due to its weak battery. Now, Mi A3 arrives with a 4000 mAh battery. It can keep the phone chugging on for a whole day, and with light use, it can even go for more than a day. Plus, the phone supports fast charging and can get to full charge within 2 hours.
The Mi A3 is a well-rounded phone which keeps the performance high and has a capable battery. However, the phone will not attract you with its design. Plus, it does not have the modern AMOLED display too. However, if you are a fan of stock Android, then the Mi A3 can be a great phone to go for.
