    This phone came with Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) and is upgradable to Android 9.0 (Pie), Android One

    Last security patch was August 2020 from what I've read online. I don't own the phone so I'm not certain.

    Therefore to keep the item secure you could look at a Custom ROM >

    Of course it's so cheap you probably just want it as a backup phone and won't care about security of the system and apps. (edited)

    Xiaomi Mi A1 has 4k @30fps and has been a cracking budget handset for me for the last 5 years..

    Only just upgraded to a Poco X4 pro a couple of months back, which is great but still using the Mi A1 almost everyday for surfing and Spotify use
    Yeah, completely agree...
    Bought for a friend in 2018 & it served him brilliantly until he finally upgraded to a Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro recently, when it was on offer for £119.

    Grrr, Could have done with this a week ago. I've only just replaced the screen on my Mi A1 after smashing it.
    Also I've noticed the battery drains more now after doing so...likely I've screwed something up during install (edited)

    Still use mine as a second wake up alarm. Battery lasts for months with wifi off.

    Did you know that these mi A1s have some of the highest levels of radiation of all phones?

    Not sure id recommend one in 2022... Especially how cheap phones are now.

    It was decent at the time, no doubt, but the screen was awful. Not due to the specs, but the touch polling rate must have been 30hz or something low. Any form of scrolling with your finger held on the screen, as opposed to flicking, would cause massive amounts of stutter as the screen slowly updated your finger position.

    Confirmed on multiple units with a screen tester, which was a massive shame as otherwise the device was outstanding.

    This also seriously affected Swype typing and even normal typing if your thumbs can move quick enough.
    For £40, what do you expect? I had an A1 and it more than did the job at the time.

    We had 4 of these in our household.

    One left in use now, one is a backup phone, one is smashed and one the battery swelled in. The one in use was actually smashed as well but I salvaged the screen from the one with the swollen battery to use on the smashed one.

    Cracking phones, I had mine pretty much at release. Never really had an issue with it at all - mine is still running as the backup phone. I upgraded to the Poco X3 pro.

    My youngest is the only one still using one and it is used daily, the battery still lasts well, but he can drain it fast with Pokémon go. His only complaint is that it doesn't support AR+ mode in Pokémon go due to the lack of a specific sensor.

    I will be honest and say I wouldn't bother buying one now but I also think they would do the job if you are on a tight budget.
