UMIDIGI X vs Xiaomi Mi A3: design

The UMIDIGI X comes with a 6.35-inch water drop screen, which is a little larger than Xiaomi Mi A3. And both of the two smartphones offer in-screen fingerprint unlock. On the back, there are vertical arranged triple rear cameras, which looks similar to the Xiaomi Mi A3. The only difference is that there are red circles around the camera lens on the UMIDIGI X. The UMIDIGI X offers two color options: twilight and black, while the Xiaomi Mi A3 offers three color options: white, gray and blue.

UMIDIGI X vs Xiaomi Mi A3: performance

When it comes to the performance, we will think about the phone’s processor first. The UMIDIGI X is equipped with a Helio P60 processor, while it’s Snapdragon 665 on the Xiaomi Mi A3. Although they are two different processors, they have a similar Antutu benchmark score which is about 140,000 points.

UMIDIGI X Helio P60 processor

In terms of battery, the UMIDIGI X offers a little larger battery with the capacity of 4150mAh and both the smartphones support 18W fast charging. However, the Xiaomi Mi A3 just offer a 10W charger in the package box, so if you want to use the fast charging feature, you have to buy an 18W fast charger separately.

Besides, the UMIDIGI X only offers one memory option - 4+128GB, while the Xiaomi Mi A3 offers two memory combinations including 4+64GB and 4+128GB.

Another welcome feature of the UMIDIGI X is that it supports NFC function, which will bring much convenience for users. However, the Xiaomi Mi A3 doesn’t support NFC function.

UMIDIGI X vs Xiaomi Mi A3: camera

Both the two smartphones come with triple rear cameras, while there is a little difference in the specs. The triple rear cameras of the UMIDIGI X consists of a 48MP primary lens, an 8MP ultra wide angle lens and a 5MP depth lens, while it’s 48MP primary lens + 8MP ultra wide angle lens + 2MP depth lens on the Xiaomi Mi A3. The small difference in the depth lens will not make much difference to the photography performance.

UMIDIGI X triple rear cameras

However, there is a big difference on the front camera. The UMIDIGI X only offers a 16MP front camera, while the Xiaomi Mi A3 offers a 32MP camera. So the front camera performance of the UMIDIGI X is inferior to the Xiaomi Mi A3.

UMIDIGI X vs Xiaomi Mi A3: operating system

The another factor that may lead people to choose one or the other is in the operating system. The UMIDIGI X runs on the Android 9.0 OS, while the Xiaomi Mi A3 runs on the Google’s Pure Android One system. The advantages of the Android One system are that the limited memory of your smartphones will not be occupied by bloatware applications, so you will have a good using experience on speed and fluidity. Meanwhile, you can get the privileges of some native Android applications like Google Assistant, Google camera, etc.

While with the Android 9.0 OS on the UMIDIGI X, you will experience some software customizations and get more software updates.

UMIDIGI X vs Xiaomi Mi A3: price and which one should you choose

The UMIDIGI X is priced at $179.99 (4+128GB), while the Xiaomi Mi A3 requires a higher price: $279 (4+64GB). The $100 higher price on the Xiaomi Mi A3 may be mainly attributed to 3 factors: the better selfie camera, the clean Android One system and more famous Xiaomi brand.

So if you ask me which smartphone offer higher price-performance ratio, I will tell you it’s UMIDIGI X. However, if you really care about the selfie camera and like the Android One system, you can choose the Xiaomi Mi A3. Now, both the UMIDIGI X and Xiaomi Mi A3 have been on sale on Gearbest, you can check more details on the product page.
