Xiaomi Mi A2
If you didn’t know about the phone called Xiaomi Mi A2, it is a sequel to the megahit of 2016, Xiaomi Mi A1 which gave consumers unparalleled performance at an unparalleled price. Same is true with the Mi A2 here. It has a Snapdragon 660 inside, the most powerful mid-range chip in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series. This processor is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
And what’s more, this device follows the Android One Program. That means you’ll get a clean Android experience and a wicked snappy performance for your money.

Both these phones have good camera setup on the back and the front. We do have our doubts over the Mi A2 Lite’s front camera and the Mi A2’s smaller battery but other than these quibbles, we have no complaints about the phones we are getting at the price.
Xiaomi has thwarted the competition in terms of price to performance ratio once again. But, these phones are made up of metal and they don’t have the same “premium” yet fragile build of the phones like the Huawei Nova 3i. For some, having a metal phone might be a plus point for the Xiaomi phones. Also, Snapdragon 660 has a better performance than the Kirin 710 of the Nova 3i.
Once again, these phones are exceptional value for money. If you are looking to buy a phone for around 30K, the Mi A2 and Mi A2 lite must definitely be on your RADAR. The first sale of these phones starts on September 30 and they will be available for purchase in all Mi stores across the nation.
