Xiaomi Mi A3 Design
The new Xiaomi Mi A3 is committed to glass as the main element. There are three colors available; gray, white and bright blue. In the three options, depending on how you give the light, reflections are generated on the glass.
The body of the phone is protected by Gorilla Glass 5, which is splash resistant P2i, has aluminum edges and the corners are rounded. In addition, a 3D rear curved design is added to this model. This means that the back has a slight curvature. Thanks to this, the mobile seems much smaller than it really is, it is much more manageable and also more compact. The Mi A3 has a 6.1-inch screen with a drop-shaped notch. And despite its small size, Xiaomi has stated that the mobile has a battery of about 4000 mAh.
As for the placement of the elements, at the top is the 3.5 mm jack that the previous model did not have, the noise-canceling microphone and the infrared sensor. In the upper frame, in addition, is the notification LED. On the side are the volume and power controls and on the bottom the USB Type-C port and speakers. And finally, at the top of the left side is the hybrid slot for the SIM card and the microSD. The rear camera sensors are placed vertically on a module that protrudes slightly from the body. Just below isThe LED flash. In this model, the fingerprint reader is integrated into the screen.
Xiaomi Mi A3 Screen
The screen of the Xiaomi Mi A3 lags a bit behind its predecessors. Both the Mi A1 and the Mi A2, including the Lite version, exceeded 400 pixels per inch, instead, this new model, with its 6.088-inch panel, stays at a resolution of 1560 x 720 pixels, which is equivalent to HD + 282 pixels per inch. Therefore, we have a screen that looks good, with very bright colors but somewhat blurred letters. That is, it lacks sharpness.
The AMOLED screen has excellent contrast, with deep blacks and very striking colors. The maximum brightness is somewhat fair and the automatic is somewhat slow. And finally, touch sensitivity is good.
Xiaomi Mi A3 Cameras
The rear cameras of the Mi A3 take good pictures, especially when there is good lighting. It is here that the main sensor manages to take quality photos, both in terms of colors and details. Of course, the best photos are achieved with HDR mode activated. As for night photography, the Mi A3 achieves quite acceptable results taking into account its price range.
As for the front camera sensor, with 32 megapixels and a f / 2.2 aperture lens, it achieves quite good selfies, with a good level of detail although with sometimes burnt bottoms or a slight blur.
Taking into account the price range, the versatility of the triple camera and its front camera has more than acceptable results. Even the videos manage to have a fairly consistent level of quality.
Xiaomi Mi A3 Performance
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor arrives to improve that gaming part that perhaps limped a bit on the previous model. Despite this, there are two very popular games that are not compatible, the Asphalt 9 and the Fortnite.
The performance of this processor is very good, it works in a very fluid way and allows you to move through menus, applications, and others in a very fast way.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 has a compact, lightweight and quite manageable design, it reaches the level of photographic quality that can be demanded from a phone of this price and its performance is very good. However, the screen lags a bit behind.
There are also other aspects, such as the absence of NFC or that the fingerprint reader or facial unlocking is a bit slow that makes it a model to improve in some aspects
