What the Critics Are Saying...

Xiaomi MI A3 comes with a triple camera array, an S-AMOLED screen, and Android One experience. But that's not certainly enough these days for any midrange phones, especially considering its price. I would've made some sense if the phone was priced just a couple of thousand bucks less.

Xiaomi's Mi A3 delivers a flagship style that's not without either flaws or substance, with a bare-minimal impact on the wallet.

A capable device

Overall, if you consider the design, the Stock Android experience and therefore the lack of bloatware, the excellent battery life offered, the overall performance and quality of camera shots, the Mi A3 is a good device, and considering that you can find it for under 200 pounds, I can only recommend it.

The stock Android phone from Xiaomi is back and this time it has three cameras

from The Indian Express

If you want a Xiaomi phone with the stock Android and one that will get upgraded to Android 10 quickly, Mi A3 is that device. The performance is not bad, the battery life has improved drastically and there are useful design changes like the re-addition of the headphone jack and splash-resistance coating. The selfie camera is impressive.

The Mi A3 corrects a lot of the perceptive wrongs of the Mi A2. For instance, the 3.5mm headphone jack is back in action. There is a memory card slot as well. And finally, a much larger battery. Those corrections, along with an OLED display, a very new chipset that delivers slick performance, the advantages of the clean Android installation as well as the glass and aluminum sandwich build make the Mi A3 a phone that has style without missing out on the critical substance.

The Mi A3 is a pretty solid offering that offers a lot for its price. Right from the stellar hardware to the simplistic vanilla Android, the phone easily stands out amongst the crowd. It’s got a good set of cameras, stupendous battery life, great software and stunning build quality. The return of the 3.5mm jack is also highly appreciated. But on the other end of the spectrum lies its average gaming performance, poor fingerprint scanner and a lower-resolution display.

If you don't like the MIUI and the system ads but love Xiaomi, the Mi A3 makes a lot of sense. There are no Ads here. It also makes sense if you're looking for an under Rs 15,000 smartphone that offers amazing design, excellent battery, stock Android experience and decent cameras. However, if performance and good screen matter to you then there are other better options available in the market.

This phone gets almost everything right for the price

from TrustedReviews

The Xiaomi Mi A3 is a good choice for an affordable phone, especially if the camera is your priority and you want regular software updates. But if you like watching videos, you could look elsewhere because the screen isn’t up to the highest standards.
