Description

Xiaomi presents this new phone, basically a global version of the Xiaomi Mi5X with which it shares specifications. The main difference is that this is the first Xiaomi device with a "clean" and official version of Android instead of the MIUI rom. This terminal is presented as part of the Android One program, created by Google to produce low-cost smartphones with a clean version of Android and regular quick updates. This will probably be a new success for Xiaomi to approach all those users who are not "so happy" with their MIUI layer. The terminal is highly valued off by users thanks to its cost-quality relationship, except in terms of photography, where the Omnivision OV12A10 sensors that the Xiaomi Mi A1 uses are mid-range.

Finding the best price for the Xiaomi Mi A1 is no easy task. Here you will find where to buy the Xiaomi Mi A1 at the best price. Prices are continuously tracked in over 140 stores so that you can find a reputable dealer with the best price

  • Pas résistant mais satisfaisant

    3 semaines après l'avoir acheté, il a glissé de ma poche (même pas 1m du sol) et tomber sur de la terre et c'est fissuré, pas du tout résistant, super fragile. Sans compter ce défaut c'est un très bon portable pour son prix (je l'ai eu pour 175€). 2 ans après utilisation le téléphone est quasi inutilisable, le GPS marché une fois sur cinq, impossible de se connecter à certains réseau wifi, mon port USB peut charger mais ne peut transférer de fichiers ou détecter un port externe. Bon téléphone sur la courte durée.

What is a Ki score?
Ki is an automatic score based on the specifications and prices of devices. It is calculated using over 200 variables to rank smartphones, tablets and other devices from best to worst.
How do we calculate the Ki?

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:

  • Design and screen
  • Hardware and performance
  • Camera
  • Connectivity
  • Battery

Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.

Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.

Does the Ki score change?

The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
