will use the phone  mostly for gps, heavy browsing and youtube. Also will be using 2 apps at once. If i buy this phone i am hoping it can be smooth for at least 3 years, possible???

With OS and app getting more and more demanding, don't expect much on a mid range phone.

I will group this as light usage.. 2 years confirm no problem.. 3 years, depend on battery degrade rate/hardware failure rate/future software development.. cant guarantee but most likely can fulfill your needs..

my current usage almost like yours.. youtube, browsing (a lot), WhatsApp, messenger, phone call 1~2 hours daily.. battery life can lasts me very well.. performance is smooth and less heat.. which is I like it.. I'm from flagship to this phone, I don't feel big changes and feel quite surprise with this chipset Snapdragon 625..

but don't expect good photos in lowlight which is not really possible.. but if in good condition, it is good enough as others.. I did downloaded some game like GTA, NFS, Worms & others.. but I do not have time to test it out so I cant confirm with you this yet.. maybe I can try to play GTA for 15minutes and report back to u again

Too bad my gamepad is not functioning for left and right. Else I can enjoy the game. So u will know how long time that I didn't play game with my phone already. But so far I play GTA in short duration with default settings by game itself as attached, it is smooth enough to play it. Great..

I did have many experience with g Store. It's reliable seller.. it's fine to go with it.

To be honest my old mi note LTE, can feel laggy due to 3gb ram only, but processor is Snapdragon 801.
Even worst than Snapdragon 625 series.
So far just let go and instead of mi A1 so far so good..

Hardware cannot guaranties  and even now you own a flagship.

Yup just buy now and enjoy now.. biggrin.gif

Nahh... 4 years phone with original battery still can last 8 hours for heavy usage.

SD 801 is power hunger proc. I owned a flagship phone with SD 801 proc. Now the phone become so laggy even just for light usage. I suspect this is due to new software update make it less optimize with the old proc architecture. Hopefully Mi A1 can last me at least 2 years.

2 years should be no problem, but if still perform well after that consider as a bonus.

Now my wife Mi5 SD820 also feeling laggy.. just installed few kid games only.
I think all those flagship come with 3gb ram confirm laggy after fully usage.
Including Mi5s 64gb also 3gb ram only.

In my experience for after the passed.
Mi6 , mi max 2, mi A1/Mi5X all comes with 4~6GB had never laggy before.. almost smoothen.

I finally got the update Oreo notification (I didn't clean the Google Service app).

But I'll hold it, since so many bugs :scared:

Anyone got PIP to work? Every other tutorial on YouTube is either in Hindi or Tamil language...

Yes... but only certain apps work. I tried VLC, it works. YouTube require YouTube Red subscription, so can't test it.

As for YouTube, can use Chrome as workaround. Open YouTube in Chrome and play at full screen then hit home button. Tested, it works.
