Xiaomi is one of those manufacturers with a powerful polarizing effect on the market. The Chinese constructor does not leave indifferent, neither to its legions of fans nor to the long line of detractors that pursues each of its releases. We could say that it has giant wood, although its exits to the outside, for now, are the dropper, or it was to this Xiaomi Mi A1, a version of the Mi 5X but with pure Android inside.
Its coat is largely responsible for this effect, a sheet to cover Android that looks a lot like iOS, maybe too much, something that has won it little criticism. And this is precisely what disappears with this Xiaomi Mi A1 that we have in hand. A phone born of the marriage between Google and Xiaomi and that carries Android One in its bowels.
The “noble” materials no longer understand categories or classes. Metallic and glass-coated telephones now appear in almost all price ranges, and we no longer miss metal bodies within reach of all pockets. In this case, covering a body with 155.4 millimetres high and 75.8 millimetres wide. It is not a compact phone, far from it, but it is comfortable and balanced with its 165 grams of weight.
The Mi A1 has not yet joined the increasingly pronounced trend away from the frames of the phones. We are dealing with a classic Xiaomi, with the characteristics of its relatives of previous generations, and whose only notable changes are those related to loading and data transfer. The USB C port, reversible, appears in this terminal and warns us that it is time to change the cables we have at home. The disappearance of the micro USB is closer than we think.
In the midst of the transition to OLED by the giants of the industry, the LCD continues to have a lot of life ahead of it. We have the test in a growing Xiaomi that opts for IPS panels, such as the one that mounts this Xiaomi Mi A1, 5.5 inches with FullHD resolution, 400 pixels per inch. A figure is well known in the mid-range and some high.
Something has because there is already a substitute in circulation but it is still riding. An eight-core processor clocked at 2GHz that do not stop dating, and that in the case of this Xiaomi Mi A1 is accompanied by 4GB of RAM and a storage of 64GB plus the microSD. Because it’s pure Android, but we’re not talking about a Nexus. You can put a microSD and also format it to fatten the internal memory instead of operating in parallel, and it is a great news.
