The smartphone has an all-glass design with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Overall, the Xiaomi Mi A3 flaunts a premium-looking design with a 6.08-inch AMOLED display with dot drop notch. In fact, the Xiaomi Mi A3 looks a lot similar to the company's flagship, the Mi 9.

Xiaomi Mi A3: Hardware Performance

The Xiaomi Mi A3 is one of the first smartphones in the world to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. Unlike the Mi A2, the Xiaomi Mi A3 has a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is a good add-on, especially for those, who listen to music via wired headsets. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 is a capable octa-core chipset, and the smartphone can play games like PUBG without any issue, as the smartphone has a 720p display, the smartphone can perform well even while running graphics-intensive apps, as the chipset has to drive less number of pixels.

At the front, the smartphone houses a single 32 MP selfie camera, capable of supporting Face Unlock. The primary camera setup on the Xiaomi Mi A3 can record 1080p videos, and also supports a boast of camera-centric features like panorama mode, portrait mode, and night mode for improved low-light camera performance.

Xiaomi Mi A3: Price To Specs Ratio

The Xiaomi Mi A3 retails in Europe for 249 Euros or Rs. 20,000, which makes it an expensive smartphone, especially because the smartphone features a 720p display. There is no doubt in the fact that the Xiaomi Mi A3 has a capable chipset with AMOLED display. However, having a low-resolution screen, especially on a phone that costs around Rs. 20,000 is a bummer. The smartphone runs on Android 9 Pie OS with stock Android skin, which makes it an attractive offering. If you are looking for a stock Android smartphones with features like triple camera, in-display fingerprint sensor, AMOLED display, and all under Rs. 20,000, then the Mi A3 might make the cut.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
