This phone comes with a 5.99 inches capacitive touchscreen display with the resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and a 403 PPI pixel density. It has a full HD+ resolution, which is very good, but the display does not get too bright.

Verdict: Xiaomi Mi A2 mobile phone Review
Xiaomi Mi A2 is a good phone in a budget, with the 64GB version available in INR 11,499 and the 128GB version in INR 16,499. It has one of the best camera performances in this price range, and has the Snapdragon 660 processor, which is seen in the more expensive phone models. However, the battery life and capacity is poor, and the phone comes without a Micro SD slot and a 3.5mm earphone jack. But overlooking these minor glitches, this phone overall packs a great performance on an affordable budget.
A good alternative at a slightly lesser price would be the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, and the Huawei Honor Play.
