Reception[edit]

Xiaomi Mi A1 received mostly positive reviews. Sam Byford of The Verge described Mi A1's most distinct feature is its software that runs on stock Android and not on Xiaomi's MIUI layer.[12] Sahil Gupta of TechRadar wrote that Mi A1’s Android One certified experience along with tried and tested hardware, and dual camera capability gives you the premium feel under a budget.[13]

Issues[edit]

The Android Oreo update rolled out at the end of 2017 produces a drastic battery drain on some devices. Xiaomi is already aware of this issue and working on a fix.[14] [15]
