Xiaomi a few years ago was pretty much the new kid on the block in the world of smartphones, but the things have changed and in 2018 it is one of the brands competing at the top of the food chain. In those years numerous Xiaomi phone releases amassed great reviews not just in Asia but the whole world. Budget smartphones are becoming better and more popular every year and Xiaomi is without a doubt the best smartphone on a budget. Xiaomi did not only conquer the budget phone market but also they are competing in the high range of phones, putting fear into hearts of the biggest brands with their amazing quality, features, and such low price.
One of their newest releases Xiaomi Mi 6X, maybe better known as Xiaomi A2 is the new version of its extremely popular predecessor Xiaomi A1. Once again Xiaomi delivered on all the aspects of a great phone and distinguished itself even more from those cheap Chinese brands. The low price of any Xiaomi phone doesn’t tell the full story. All of the phones in the Xiaomi lineup are well built and offer so much at the price to performance ratio and Xiaomi A2 and Xiaomi A2 Mi Lite aren’t an exception.
Xiaomi A2 sports a 6-inch full HD+ display with 1080 by 2160 pixels resolution, 18:9 ratio. It is a great looking screen by any standards. The xiaomi A2 phone is run by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 which is a good step up from last years A1’s Snapdragon 625. There are two options for RAM: 4GB version and a 6GB RAM version, although we would recommend the 6GB one as the improvement is well worth it.
Xiaomi A2’s camera didn’t fail to deliver too. It houses a dual camera system using a 20-megapixel sensor and a 12-megapixel sensor used for depth perception. Great camera AI is one of the features worth talking about. There are multiple camera modes that can help you improve your pictures and all of them work pretty much flawlessly, Front camera is no joke too, the 20-megapixel front camera brings joy to those that love taking selfies.
A2 isn’t the only phone Xiaomi released. Xiaomi released another great budget phone called Xiaomi A2 Mi Lite, A2’s little brother. The lite version is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 coupled with Adreno 502 GPU giving it plenty of power, enough for most users. It has 3GB of RAM which is enough for the phone to run smoothly. Xiaomi A2 Mi Lite is a budget-friendly option that will give you a great phone Xiaomi is known to make for such a small amount of money.
Xiaomi gave us two new budget phones that can contest some of the high-end phones that are popular, at the fraction of the price of those phones. It is another good year all-around for Xiaomi as they slowly climb to the top of the market. This year brought great phones from Xiaomi at such a small price that we could call them a steal.
