    I have the A1, mainly because of the 4G frequencies. LTE band 20 is the most common in my country (and most Europe, I believe) and the X5 doesn't support it.

    Apart from that and the user interface (MIUI vs stock android) I don't think there is much differences between them.

    I think for the european market, the A1 will be the right choice, considering the LTE frequencies and also the OTA updates.

    At the end of the day, these are nice looking smartphones, well balanced and fairly priced.

    You must be proud of your phone
    Mi A1 is absolutely awesome
    You have the b20 that does not have Mi 5X
    Who Has Mi 5X Installs Android Stock!
    Who Mi A1 wants MIUI, like me
    I left it at home without using it for MIUI's absence
    I've tried Launcher, app, and so on
    I decided to leave so original, only File Manager MIUI, and photo gallery
    The phone arrives at 7.30 - 8 hours of SOT used for 3 days
    I think MIUI will be released and then you will have a perfect phone with little money


    Sbagliato
    Devi essere fiero del tuo telefono
    Mi A1 e' assolutamente strepitoso
    Hai la b20 che non ha Mi 5X
    Chi ha Mi 5X installa Android Stock!
    Chi ha Mi A1 vuole MIUI, come me
    Io l'ho lasciato giorni a casa senza utilizzarlo per l'assenza di MIUI
    Ho provato Launcher, app, ecc
    Ho deciso di lasciare cosi originale, solo File manager MIUI, e galleria per foto
    Il telefono arriva a 7.30 - 8 ore di SOT utilizzato 3 giorni
    Penso MIUI verra' rilasciata e poi avrai un telefono perfetto con pochi soldi

    I honestly don't understand all the hype around MIUI (or any other brand's android flavour).

    I just must assume everybody else is using a smartphone in a very different way that I am, or use it for very different purposes...

    If you used MIUI and go to Android Stock, you realize how much MIUI is complete

    I can honestly say that I have always loved Miui UI..compared to other phones its simple and precise...However I cant wait to get my hands on a 100 % (almost) Android device....

    I must admit I'm not qualified to discuss wether or not MIUI is better than "stock" android, just becasue I have never used MIUI.

    I can only say that the version of android present on the A1 does work for me. Is simple, yes, but clean, functional, solid and stable.

    I surely would like to see MIUI for this phone and be able to try it, since so many people really relate to MIUI in a positive way...

    Better to have two options to choose from than regret the lack of a choice. ;)

    Well spoken ..hopefully in the future the developers will come up with a Miui ROM for this device...overcoming the A/B partitons might be a big hurdle...time will tell.... :)

    I agree
    When you have tried MIUI, I would be curious to have your opinion

    I use a call recording app that works just fine and there are also apps that add the app lock functionality.
