Options classic: smartphone, silicone cover, With the cable adapter, instructions and the clip to extract SIM-cards.
The device is sold in three color versions: gray, blue and white. We got in a gray model, which in fact looks more like a black.
Glossy back panel with vertical modulations flaunts word Xiaomi, accompanying labels and markings, as well as triple classic camera module with flash below.
On the left is a slot for a SIM card and the microSD, top - mini-jack-in, right - the volume button and power, from the bottom - hole dynamics and input USB Type-C.
Included is a black silicone case. On the experience of using it affects not much. In the cover there is a plug for socket USB Type-C.
In general, the smartphone looks pretty and even expensive. For example, slightly more than the budget Redmi Note 7 It gives the impression of a compromise vehicle, Mi A3 same in appearance like a subflagman least.
The Mi A3 AMOLED-mounted display with a resolution of 720 × 1560 pixels, wherein no special clarity, pleasing colors and brightness. Of course, you can use it, but in 2019, it would seem, everything is already accustomed to the fact that the screens do not cause complaints. At least in smartphones from famous brands and with the price of more than 15 thousand rubles.
With frameless failed too: a teardrop-shaped cut-optimal, but the edge here is quite thick. Especially at the bottom. A little bit more, and can be easily placed under the control panel screen and a set of sensors and cameras on top.
The only speaker gives a fairly clear and loud, but the sound verhasty. Xiaomi does not indulge in stereo and in more serious models, so there's special expectations and was not. But the on-site support for Bluetooth 5.0 and is still loved by many 3.5-millimeter headphone jack.
But for a smartphone camera at this price point it is nothing. Day shots excellent evening - a little worse. Sometimes, in the dark, not only difficult to see objects, but also completely astray sharpness - you have to take a photo in the "Night." The third eye - not a very serious objective with ultrashirokougolnym review. Portrait of a cute, but with an unnatural bokeh.
For the front camera is also no complaints.
Staffing app looks about the same as other Android-shells, but slightly shorter and closer to iOS. Unpopular modes and settings are hidden in the menu in the upper right corner of the screen.
The Mi A3 Snapdragon set 665 with the frequency of the nuclei to 2 GHz and graphics processor 610 Adreno. Random access memory - 4 GB. That's what they both issued in synthetic Geekbench test:
But AnTuTu test results:
According to them, the power of this gadget is worth somewhere on a par with the Redmi Note 7. When testing the Mi A3 worked without lags and freezes, as well as pulling heavy games at medium graphics settings.
Mi A3 comes with clean version of Android - the one that Google gives developers, without any add-ons from the Chinese brand. There are no extra bells and whistles, but this default option works faster and more accurate than any bunch of "system + shell."
On the left, where we used to see the widget toolbar are personalized recommendations from Google. Swipe from the top caused the notification and quick access toolbar.
The system is not overloaded preset services. Here, only Google and quite a bit Xiaomi.
Unlock Mi A3 can be face, fingerprint and a PIN. Basic authentication method - via a built-in screen fingerprinting. He can not occur instantly, but quite quickly.
Authorization face fast and not very safe. Combined release is not present - if the mark does not work, look for a person on their own system owner will not start.
The Mi A3 installed battery with a solid capacity of 4030 mA · hr. In conjunction with economical AMOLED-display with a lower resolution, light-optimized OSes and processor it provides an excellent autonomy. Even with a very active use of a smartphone should live to see the night tables and a moderate - to hold out without sockets and a half to two days.
Among the advantages of Mi A3 - autonomy, good camera, fast and easy system, nice view. And all this beating two major disadvantages: screen-level Chinese noname smartphones and the lack of NFC.
Perhaps, this gadget is suitable for those who simply do not need to pay phone, and those who have not yet used the device with good modern screen. Mi A3 can be present, for example, older parents: smartphone easily cope with messengers replace a simple camera without zamuchaet shell nuances and will rarely request recharging.
At the same time there is reason to assume that no successor Mi A3 Mi A2, but rather an updated version of the Mi A2 Lite. We already wrote about the probability of escape Mi A3 Pro, Which will become the uncompromising continuation of the series Mi with pure Android. Probably, there will nestydno screen and NFC-chip processor and powerful. If you visited the review Mi A3 occasionally loses in comparison with the conventional Redmi Note 7, the Mi A3 Pro, may become a rival popular Pocophone F1.
Price Xiaomi Mi A3 - 16 990 rubles for the version with 64 GB of memory and 18 990 rubles for the version with 128 GB of ROM.
The author expresses his gratitude to the company Xiaomi for providing the test device.
