This is easily the best budget phone of 2017. The closest competitor is the Meizu M6 Note. However, I prefer the A1 due to its stock Android UI. I wish Xiaomi made a flagship running vanilla Android. GET it here (Banggood): http://geni.us/Wzei ALSO GET it here (Gearbest): http://geni.us/g5ydis

Linus , Amazfit Pace is now available on GB for 89$. is that a good deal , how is the low light screen performance compare to android smartwatches ?

Bash786 Ali says:

Hi Linus really enjoy your reviews. Question would you go for the mi a1 , Lenovo p2 or the zte axon 7 …thankyou

Ramya Sree says:


Juan Canelon Liscano says:

Could you do a versus between the Xiaomi Mi A1 and the Meizu M6 Note?

Ryan Castello says:

This vs red I note 4x
Note x for me is $80 cheaper in aus

ahmd5 says:

Great phone and great review

Nurullah Shaibal says:

Considering the price and performance which one will be better xiaomi A1 or huwei nova 2i?

Jitendra Sakariya says:

Really disappointed from front camera & rear camera low light weak performance, lack of OIS, Multicoloured LED notification light, etc.

Danish Firhan says:

Xiaomi Mi A1 or Meizu M6 Note? Please respond 🙂

a7m3d nai3f says:

great review

Dragan Jovanovic says:

Do a review on Doogee Mix 2

Gtx TwoKEight says:

The cameras of this phone are garbage. We don’t need shitty dual cameras just give us a single camera with freakin’ OIS.

Dragan Jovanovic says:

Meizu M6 note is better

Daniel Duarte says:

great video again

Grewtion says:

Lol watching this on my Mi A1, hoping to watch this review on your channel. Stock android have been great so far, and camera during daylight is great enough as well hahaha


Good review bro ……like always
honor 7x vs mate 10 lite vs MI A1 vs meizu m6 note… witch better one

sarcasmic guy says:

Very awesome review
You can easily convince anybody to buy..lol
Perhaps that according to me its the best budget smartphone in market to offer a setup like iphone 7plus.Isn’t it amazing because this camera setup is best for potrait mode photography and no other company dare to offer this setup in such a price range as it is said in mi a1 launch event this camera setup is most expensive dual camera setup till now.
So love you xiaomi.

Ad Krishna says:

Great review bro. Fast charging feature is the one I really missed here

Sunil Singla says:

Please review honor 7x

Kareem Aboukhadiga says:

Great review . Mi a1 vs meizu m6 note Which one is the best in screen quality and sound quality . Which one more louder ? Thanks

usman abdulkadir says:

Nice phone Great review linus

Muzamil Gul says:

Which one is better Mate 10 lite or Xiaomi A1 ?

Subsistence says:

Dude, you’re seriously one of the best reviewer I know on youtube. Simple, objective, humble, and your voice is smooth af
I actually bought this phone last week, and by watching this video right now, i’m realizing I did a good purchase lol. Thanks again for your awesome work, cheers from Paris.

Rubo Stars says:

I had this phone for a few weeks in September and I can say the weakest point is the camera. Not accurate colours, focusing issues when using the zoom lens, and you can’t take long exposures, not even 5secs.
However the user experience is great, the system runs smoothly and the screen has very natural colours. Battery life is quite good as well

niraj karwa says:

where do you live brother?

Riich Alcalá says:

Witch Is better, Mi A1 vs Mate 10 Lite? Camera, display, and battery
Great video

Mark_S says:

Considering that most of the good deals on this phone are from China vendors, potential buyers have to consider what lies ahead if the phone has problems. Here in the US, an Honor 6x is cheaper, and would probably be one of my top picks. There are also some good deals out there on the Moto G5 Plus and Moto G5s Plus, both of which carry better known branding. If Xiaomi wants to penetrate the US market, they’re going to have to lower their prices considerably, and get into the inventory of more big name sellers.

Maruf Hasan says:

Hi bro Samsung galaxy j7 pro review….plz

Navian Rudi says:

by your reviews.. i still conclude that Meizu M6 note was the best budget smarpthone…..especially by display, battery life and the front camera..

Andrew Marc David says:

Love stock Android…good budget option. Great video Linus

Pip Hacker says:

Wow this phone is looking amazing & far better then Oppo F5 & H. Mate, 10 lite
Superb quality device in budget

Immanuel Kant says:

Just bought it, should arrive tomorrow

Roldan dela Guardia says:

This calls for a Redmi Note 4X vs Mi A1 vs M6 Note battle of the budgets three-way comparison!
