The Mi A2 follow the trend of 2018 which is supporting dual cameras. The Mi A2 sports a primary camera of 12 megapixels with Sony’s IMX486 sensor with f/1.75 aperture. The secondary camera is a 20 Megapixel of f/1.75 aperture (Sony’s IMX 376sensor). The secondary camera is not a telephoto lens anymore instead it creates a binning effect. That is, under low light, it combines 4 pixels into 1 to allow more light and a better picture henceforth. The front camera is also a 20 Megapixel sensor with a 1.75 aperture with the same lens as the secondary camera (Sony IMX 376).

Mi A2 Camera Review

We had high expectations with the MI A2 as the MI A1 had an excellent camera so it has big shoes to fill. and indeed it. Under good lighting conditions, the images turned out to be crossed with an ample amount of detail and good dynamic range. These pictures are pleasing to the eye as most of us want in the social media era. Under low lighting, thanks to the pixel binning, the pictures retained a lot of detail and the noise levels for point-load to and the credit also must go to the relatively narrow f/1.75 aperture. The rear camera also has a pro mode and all of our favorite the Portrait mode.

In the case of the front camera, Thanks to the pixel binning technology again the results came out to be great. The front camera also houses an LED flash which is quite helpful when you take selfies in extreme low light conditions. So the camera just like the Mi A1 with the MI A2 is a major positive.


Concluding, Mi A2 has one of the best cameras under the price bracket of Rs 25000 and stand ahead in the competition. This is because of the so well optimization by Xiaomi of its hardware and software, especially for the camera. Picture quality is great but it lacks some details when you look closely. Even the focus issues can be seen with video recording but turn out to be a great camera phone.
