4. Xiomi Mi A3

There’s no way you’re active in the Xiaomi smartphone community or atleast are familiar with Xiaomi devices and have not heard of its A series and the insane camera qualities it packed.

I first laid my hands on the A1 when it got out and the camera quality was very impressive. So was the Mi A2 and A3 which happens to be the most recently launched devices on this list, July 2019, promises to be exciting as well.

It spots 3 back cameras. One main, one depth camera and one ultra wide. That alongside the attention to picture quality details on the A3 puts it in an instant front runner spot.

Another special thing about the Mi A series too is that it comes with stock Android.

No MIUI, no bloatware, just the raw, unedited Android straight from Google and the benefits of this option are quite handy:

  • Frequent updates directly from Google.
  • Super fast device with no bloatware.
  • Enjoy the original android experience with the default gestures.
  • And many other exciting functions.

The A3 also spots Xiaomi’s latest 48MP camera hardware added to its latest devices with 2160p resolution. Here are the full camera specs.

Main CameraTriple48 MP, f/1.8, (wide), 1/2″, 0.8µm, PDAF

The A3 should be priced a little bit higher than the Redmi note 7 but not up to what the asking price for K20. You can buy this device from Amazon and other online stores.
