    I got the mi A2 and its amazing! Performance and response time is just out of this world. Camera is hands down amazing, continuous slow mo in 1080p! Portrait function works great the only downside i experienced is batterylife wich is average.

    Android one isn't a compromise at all. The mi a1 was popular because of it. The problem with the a2 is that they compete directly with Nokia's all Android one lineup. In my opinion the a2 lite is great, but the a2 is just a lesser phone compared to the Nokia 7+. And the price difference isn't that big in europe right now.

    The downside of this device is a poor software optimization. Being a pure android, the operating system should occupy something close to 6gb of available memory. However in mi A2 the system occupies more than 15gb.
