Xiaomi Mi A2 and Mi A2 Lite Release Date, Price and Specifications

Xiaomi continues to impress with the launch of the Mi A2, a well-priced mid-range phone with similar specs and price to phones like the Moto G6 Plus and Honor 9 Lite. 

The phone runs Android One, addressing the issues we’ve had with past excellent Xiaomi phones that didn’t run Google apps as they were Chinese imports. Not this time!

Here’s everything you need to know about the Xiaomi Mi A2 and A2 Lite.

When is the Xiaomi Mi A2 release date?
The Mi A2 and A2 Lite launched in Spain on 24 July and Xiaomi says “the devices will be rolled out gradually in 40 markets around the world, with availability starting late July.”

Maddeningly, there is still no official UK launch, although many European countries are getting the device.

How much does the Xiaomi Mi A2 cost?
Pricing was given in Euros for the Spanish market.

The Mi A2 pricing is 4GB+32GB for €249, 4GB+64GB for €279 and 6GB+128GB for €349.
The Mi A2 Lite pricing is 3GB+32GB for €179 and 4GB+64GB for €229.

This puts both phones at the top end of the budget phone market and with the regular Mi A2 into the mid-range. 

What are the Xiaomi Mi A2 specs?
While the two phones look very similar on the outside, there are some important differences on the inside.

The main differences include the notch and curved corner display on the 19:9 A2 Lite compared to the 18:9 rectangular screen on the A2. The regular A2 also has a better processor, better camera set up and the option of 6GB RAM.

The camera set up in the A2 is particularly impressive sounding, and the Snapdragon 660 should hopefully see decent performance and excellent battery life.

Here are those specs in full:

Both phones run Android One. This is a version of Android that promises a clean, close-to-stock operating system and timely security and software updates through Google's Project Treble.

This means the Mi A2 and A2 Lite run Android Oreo 8.1 out the box, have smarter longer lasting batteries and have Google Assistant and Lens integration. A pure Google Xiaomi phone could be what boosts the company in Europe, as previously Chinese imports could not run Google services.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
