A step up from the previous iterations, the Xiaomi Mi A3 looks and premium for its price, adorning an elegant look, thanks to the glass back.

Mi A3's screen has a resolution of 720 x 1560 pixels, a pixel density of 286 ppi and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The 720 display comes with a number of benefits with one being decreased battery drainage and another, a blazing fast screen since there isn't much display to power. One of the downsides of the 720 display is that the images and videos don't appear as good as they do in higher resolutions. The Xiaomi Mi A3 has an optical under-display fingerprint reader that is so accurate that you don't have to turn on the screen in order for it to work. There is also a face unlock option but most users find it less secure than the fingerprint unlock.
