Xiaomi Mi A2 review: A great sequel with a fantastic camera, but it isn’t for everyone

Xiaomi once again shows that it understands the value market better than anyone else.

The Mi A1 was one of the best phones of 2017. It combined Xiaomi’s hardware chops with the simplicity of Android One, resulting in a device that was a delight to use.
