Father has the 6X variant. Flashed the xiaomi.eu weekly rom updates and is very good value. Everything is good apart from the screen, it's LCD and barely visible in the sun. Comparing to modern LED displays, I got him an A70 and is stunned by how bright it is compared to this dim thing. Just something for people to consider but then again is it sunny most of the time here? Probably not. (y) Also about the headphone jack, you get an Type C dongle on the 6x so can only assume the same for this...
It does have a headphone socket according to this page. It's the non-Lite version that doesn't: https://www.androidcentral.com/xiaomi-mi-a2-mi-a2-lite Meanwhile the price has gone up to £108.24, making the Clove 64Mb version look better value: https://www.clove.co.uk/products/xiaomi-mi-a2-lite
Nice phone but no headphone socket that is just bad
Thanks, ordered. Gutted to have missed out on that Pocophone deal but this phone will do for a bit. Now £108.24 btw
