Android One smartphone performs and dual rear camera also lives up to its claims Related News Xiaomi’s Mi A1 is unlike any other phone they’ve launched in India in the last couple of months For one this has no MIUI and the reason for that is the Android One branding Also this is one of their first phones in the Indian market to sport dual cameras on the back When Xiaomi has announced it was launching this phone the expectation was this would be the Mi 5X but the Mi A1 is supposed to be a completely different device Xiaomi and Google insist this is a global launch and the phone will be making an appearance in other markets like Russia Indonesia etc Of course India is getting the Mi A1 smartphone first given how well Xiaomi has done here and is now the number two smartphone brand On other side Google will be hoping to cash in on Xiaomi’s popularity and hope the Android One project finally takes off in a market which is one of the most important for the company We’ve used the Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One smartphone for sometime now and here’s our review Xiaomi Mi A1 Specifications: 55-inch display | Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor | 4GB RAM and 64GB storage (expandable) | 12MP+ 12MP rear camera and 5MP front camera | 3080 mAh battery | Android Nougat 71 Xiaomi Mi A1 price in India: Rs 14999 Xiaomi Mi A1 Design Display review Mi A1 will remind users of many other Xiaomi smartphones they would have used in the past In fact from the front it reminds me a lot of the Google Pixel design given the glass on the front Mi A1 is launching in three colours: Gold with a white panel on the front the Black version and a Rose gold version which will be made available for sale The metal unibody design is something that we’ve seen Xiaomi use in many of its others devices and Mi A1 doesn’t feel any different It is solid to hold and has the look and feel of a premium device even though it is priced at Rs 14999 On the back the dual rear cameras are placed horizontally and the lens set does tend to jut out The round fingerprint scanner is at the back of the device The antenna bands at the back of the device are placed quite prominently The back has the Mi logo and well below that is the ‘Android One’ logo Xiaomi Mi A1 has a 55-inch full HD display and stock Android Additionally Mi A1 uses a Type-C USB charger with the port situated at the bottom There is single speaker grille and headphone jack at the bottom From a design perspective this is similar to the Mi 5X In fact remove the Android One branding and you won’t be able to tell the phones apart But Xiaomi insists this phone has subtle differences Also these are ‘Made in India’ and not imported from China Coming to the Mi A1’s display this one sports a 55-inch full HD (1080p) resolution This has become standard on Xiaomi phones like Redmi Note series and this is one area where the player continues to deliver The viewing angles are quite good perhaps better than what some other players offer in the price range and the big display size is ideal for video consumption No this is not a bezel-less display but Xiaomi is not compromising on the resolution either Xiaomi Mi A1 has a Type-C USB port for charging Xiaomi Mi A1 Performance review With the Mi A1 Xiaomi sticks with just one SKU: 4GB RAM on board with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and 64GB storage The processor is the same as the one on the Redmi Note 4 which is an equally capable phone Could Xiaomi has used a newer series Perhaps but clearly the company loves the 625 series Even Mi Max 2 has the same processor Xiaomi Mi A1 battery test and Antutu test score On the performance front Mi A1 is as capable as any other mid-range smartphone from the company Be it multi-tasking for apps browsing through social media video consumption or even gaming Mi A1 does not face any problems The phone didn’t heat up too noticeably even during charging or playing games like Asphalt 8 etc The fingerprint scanner is accurate and unlocks the device quickly In benchmark tests Mi A1 scores 62651 for us on Antutu which similar to what something like Redmi Note 4 etc have score for me in the past One thing that I didn’t enjoy on the Xiaomi Mi A1 so much was the sound Yes the sound is loud in fact the speakers on this smartphone are much louder compared to other Xiaomi phones I’ve used in the past But if you put the volume at full it does tend to jar a bit and can be a disconcerting experience Xiaomi Mi A1 Software review Xiaomi Mi A1 doesn’t come with any of the features you might be used to in the regular MIUI There’s no option for dual apps no segregation of all those annoying service messages in your SMS app into notifications Instead what you get is stock Android out This Android One phone might seem plain and rather boring but the advantage here is that Android Oreo update is promised by end of 2017 Also this phone is supposed to get Android P as well Again we’ll have to wait and see if both Xiaomi and Google actually deliver on this Overall though I don’t mind stock Android I am not a fan of confusing skins UI and while MIUI is certainly better compared to what other players tend to offer the lesser the bloatware the better For those who are fond of themes tinkering with launchers etc this might not be the Xiaomi phone for you Android One means this phone has stock Android The one thing that is Xiaomi on this phone is the Mi camera app given the dual rear cameras There’s also a Mi feedback app The Mi remote app was also supposed to be pre-loaded on the Mi A1 but I didn’t see when I setup this phone Xiaomi Mi A1 Camera review Xiaomi Mi A1 sports a dual-rear camera with 12MP+ 12MP setup with a telephoto and a wide angle lens setup At the launch Xiaomi went all out comparing this to the iPhone 7 Plus dual rear camera which is a tall claim to make and follow up Is the iPhone 7 Plus dual camera the best Perhaps not but that camera does offer something that mid-range phones can’t match Xiaomi Mi A1 sample in portrait mode Image resized for web Xiaomi Mi A1 samples in portrait mode Image resized for web Xiaomi Mi A1 samples in portrait mode Image resized for web With the Mi A1 Xiaomi actually delivers on the camera front I was quite surprised by some of the portrait mode shots I got from this phone provided the lighting was fine The overall composition of the pictures in the Mi A1 is impressive though lighting plays a major role in determining the quality of the image Yes like all other dual rear cameras this one requires patience Make sure the subject is standing in a place where you can create some depth and this is not ideal for low-lighting Also the smaller the object the easier it is to confuse the camera But if the setting is right you will get pictures which are exceptional For Rs 14999 this is not bad Does it mean you should throw out your DSLR No please don’t Xiaomi Mi A1 sample image (Image resized for web) Xiaomi Mi A1 sample image (Image resized for web) Overall the Mi A1 has a pretty good camera even in the regular mode Perhaps not the best in low-light at times but then this is a mid-range camera Also I wish Xiaomi had switched it up with the front camera a little There’s no marked improvement in what I’ve tried with other Redmi phones On the plus side though you can deploy someone to take portraits rather than just relying on selfies Xiaomi Mi A1 Battery review Xiaomi Mi A1 battery is 3080 mAh and it easily lasts a day even with with moderate to heavy usage The smartphone scored around 7 hours on the PC Mark battery test The fast charging is an impressive feature on the Mi A1 Xiaomi Mi A1’s dual-rear cameras Xiaomi Mi A1 Verdict Mi A1 is not just a Xiaomi device This is the revival of the Android One project in India and the world we are told Of course for many people the buying point might be the Xiaomi brand name and not because stock Android is available on this phone The rear camera though is on point and delivers quite well The performance of the phone is also up to the mark and the promise of updates is always a good lure If you’re looking for a dual camera option in the under Rs 15000 price mark my pick would be the Xiaomi Mi A1 For those who don’t really care for the stock Android and want to spend less Redmi Note 4 Moto G5 Plus etc are all options to consider For all the latest Technology News

government took office civil society organisations can be said to be feeling the heat An Intelligence Bureau report to the prime minister’s office has warned against a range of NGOs suggesting they pose a threat to the economy and that they have collectively cost India 2-3 per cent of its GDP The IB’s list includes not just international organisations like Greenpeace that have drawn attention to the environmental damage of coal-based and nuclear energy or those with extensive foreign funding but also many Gujarat-based NGOs that have campaigned for the victims of the 2002 riots among other issues including the People’s Union for Civil Liberties This is not the first time a government has had occasion to complain about motivated civil society organisations — the UPA often deployed the FCRA to delay or revoke licences and former PM Manmohan Singh has complained about the “foreign hand” instigating campaigns against nuclear energy This charge is not entirely baseless Many NGOs do have agendas that further the interests of their funders while others are driven by the particular causes they speak for They are not meant to take the large view and harmonise interests By their very nature advocacy groups take the narrow intense position The logic of the voluntary sector and private capital often work in concert and try to supplant the legitimate functions of the state They are often irritants to the government but they also often aid governments in informal ways fill gaps on the ground bring a useful view to policy and legislation In other words there is no single theory of civil society organisations or one ideal approach to them NGOs cannot be red-flagged and harassed — the government’s test is in how it reacts to their interventions The UPA erred on the other side too on occasion treating NGO orthodoxy on GM crops as equivalent to the scientific consensus for instance or inviting civil society to take on an outsized role in drafting policy through the NAC But the Modi government must be wary of taking a repressive attitude to NGOs merely because they articulate alternative priorities It will be challenged like all governments are and its task is to accommodate diverse perspectives where possible to shoulder past the ones that it judges irrelevant and know that some criticism is inevitable given the tradeoffs of any decision-making It must realise that scapegoating NGOs is not going to strengthen the government For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Published: July 31 2017 12:48 am Quinton

that left the batsmen with no response on the fourth day of the third Test involving England and South Africa Stokes sent in a stunning delivery in the 17th over of the South Africa chase at The Oval on Sunday to give the left handed Quinton de Kock absolutely no chance of blocking it out Coming in from round the wicket Stokes’ delivery looked touch-and-go for a no ball but he was saved by an inch
