Another victim with this generation is the 3.5mm
headphone jack – and we thought midrangers were
immune from this spreading fad. At least there’s
an adapter in the bundle.

The Xiaomi Mi 6X has finally gone global and we have a play date with the international Mi A2. Some big shoes it has to fill – the Mi A1 was such a well-rounded yet affordable smartphone that it would regularly feature in our review conclusions as the main alternative for a wide range of competitors. Can the Mi A2 top that?

For one, this year’s chipset is a notch (or several) up – the Snapdragon 625 in the Mi A1 was all about endurance, while the Snapdragon 660 in the Mi A2 is similarly frugal, only vastly more powerful.

Speaking of notches, there isn’t one to spoil the top of the Mi A2’s display. It’s a contemporary 18:9 unit, the almost-6-inches in diagonal FullHD+ LCD that Xiaomi’s already used on a bunch of smartphones. So, that’s another one where A2>A1.

More of side step than a definitive improvement is the camera. Gone is the 12MP telephoto module that offered 2x zoom, substituted by a 20MP secondary camera for improved low-light performance (OnePlus-style). The main cam on the back is still 12MP, but now gets a 2/3 of a stop brighter lens (f/1.8 vs. f/2.2). Over on the front, a 20MP selfie cam (same sensor as the one on the rear) replaces the basic 5MP shooter of the Mi A1, and comes with an added flash too.
