The Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is Tested
The Chinese giant spares no battery in this new terminal that convinces for its good performance at a price that very few competitors are able to offer.
If you are looking for a basic “smartphone”, that makes decent photos, allows you to have installed the basic applications you need in your day and, above all, with a good battery, the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is your mobile.
The Chinese giant does not skimp. It has phones for all tastes and needs. And best of all are the prices at which it moves. So, once again, Xiaomi sneaks into our favorites with the Mi A2 Lite, the little brother of the Mi A2.
To start with its price: we can buy it from 179 euros in the official shop of Xiaomi.
My A2 Lite is a very handy terminal. It is small, despite the growing trend. But its screen, equipped with facial recognition technology, with “notch” FHD of 5.84 “, fullscreen of 19: 9, is more than enough in a terminal so compact with this one, in fact, it is not necessary anymore. hand is handled to perfection despite its dimensions: 8.75 mm thick and a weight of 178 gr.
There are three colors available : blue, black and gold. And that the “notch” on the screen, unlike the Mi A2 that does not carry the popular notch, gives it an aspect of the high-end. All this in a metal body on which the glass of the 2.5D screen curves, which sins of a certain lack of brightness, warmth or vividness of the colors.
The best: the battery
The fingerprint reader works perfectly in the back housing. And here is also the double rear camera, 12 and 5 Mpx. We are not going to fool anyone by saying that it is a terminal with powerful photographic features. Let’s be realistic. We are facing a mid-range “smartphone” that offers a decent camera equipped with AI. While it is true that Xiaomi boasts of the dual camera, it fails in nighttime photography. However, the portrait mode is very decent, as well as the images you make during the day. The “selfie” mode, with 5 Mpx camera, is also quite successful.
As for its performance, I have not found any problem. Ride an eight-core Snapdragon 625, like the Xiaomi MiA1. And we have two options: 3GB + 32GB or 4GB + 64GB. Best of all, it is expandable with microSD cards of up to 256 GB of storage. It also has a slot for two SIM cards, the best option to carry two phones in a single device.
Its best feature, without a doubt, is the 4,000 mAh battery, despite not having a fast charging system. Up to two days I have been using the mobile without having to charge it. You already know that this is relative because it depends on the use you give it, but, even among the most demanding users, a whole day is safe.
It has Android One, «jack» for headphones and the sound it offers is decent.
