Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite (Redmi 6 Pro) review: a budget Android one smartphone with good performance

ByGoraud Mazanec 2019-07-12 1849

You have many options if you are looking for a budget Android smartphone. But finding a perfect combination of speed and performance is not easy, if you want things economical, too. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is the budget version of Xiaomi Mi A2, and it comes in the same design. Like Xiaomi Mi A2, this lite version also comes with an ultra-stylish design. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is a comparatively thicker phone, but still, its look doesn’t please the user. Although the phone is not high at all, still, you should notice the thickness of the phone.

The small size of Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite makes it a perfect choice for many users who don't like to carry a tablet-sized smartphone with them. The screen comes with a small notch, and the screen is surrounded by a black border. Although the notch is small, the front screen is still big enough.

First, let’s take a look at the main specs of the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite.

Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite looks just like the Xiaomi Mi A2. There was no notch in Xiaomi Mi A2, but this lite version comes with a small notch that provides a larger screen size for games and videos. Even in this price tag, this phone comes with a metal body and some other models still come with a plastic body. There are two different materials used in the metal frame and plastic bezel. The metal back gives a premium feel to the smartphone, but the lower and upper ends are made of plastic.

Camera Quality

If you are a big fan of photography and camera phones, Xiaomi Mi A2 is a better choice for you as it comes with very impressive cameras. However, Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite also comes with good cameras. There are two cameras at the back under the layer of glass. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite comes with 12MP and 5MP camera. The selfie camera is a 5MP camera. There are many AI features to enhance picture quality. Some built-in filters are great for photography and portrait.

Screen Display

This smartphone comes with 5.84-inch IPS LCD that is perfect for gaming and videos. 1080 x 2280 resolution offers a clear and brighter screen display. The display of Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is great, but I have noticed one issue with Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite screen. The auto brightness features in the classic A2 are great, but this function is not at its best in Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. As soon as you tilt the phone to take photos, the front sensor turns the screen display a little bit darker. The sensitivity could be better, but still, this issue is minor, and you can easily avoid this disturbance.

The auto brightness features also create some issues while you are playing games. If you want a smoother experience, I will suggest using manual brightness adjustment. Its screen brightness is better than the classic A1, and you can easily use this phone in daylight, too.


This smartphone comes with a 2GHz Snapdragon 625 14nm octa-core processor that is powerful enough for you to play games and multi-task at the same time. Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM.

If we consider the camera performance, this phone does not offer the same picture quality as of Xiaomi Mi A2, but the overall features and the AI system support the better and clear pictures. The camera focus can be hard to adjust depending upon the situations, so be careful with focusing the object while capturing with Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite.

Final Verdict

The smartphone is not the best phone in terms of camera and performance, but if you consider the price tag of 200 euros. At this price, you are getting above average performance. If budget is the main goal, these little issues will not matter because the price tag of Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite is amazing.
