How would you like iPhone 7 in half the price?
No this is not a joke.
Apple has been ruling over the high-end smartphone area for a while now.
Everyone is fascinated by every new release, and everyone drools over the new features.
However, not everyone can afford to have one.
One size doesn’t fit all, and one phone is not for everyone.
Especially not iPhone.
People on a budget can only dream about having such a phone and use the new features like the portrait mode only if a friend has it.
But maybe, just maybe, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Word has it that Apple just released a very affordable iPhone 7.
And by Apple, I mean “Apple by China” and by affordable iPhone 7 I mean “iPhone 7 clone”
Recently Xiaomi finally unveiled its newest smartphone, namely Mi A1.
Powered by Android One, this phone costs around $235 with a dual camera.
When unveiled, it struck the consumer as a lot familiar than they were expecting.
And it wasn’t until Xiaomi described it as “similar to iPhone 7 Plus” that it sunk in.
It is a cheaper alternative for people who can’t afford to buy the real deal and yet want to experience.
Here are the similarities that are too much to be just a coincidence:
Mi A1 comes in 3 colors.
Do these color sound familiar?
Of course, they do because iPhone 7 comes in exact same colors with the addition of jet black and silver.
Display & Body
Mi A1 has a 5.5-inch display.
Very much same as the iPhone 7 Plus.
Granted that is no point that should stand out, not on its own at least.
But when coupled with the entire metal finished body, it does seem to be a pattern.
Sitting on a table it almost looks like iPhone except the logo is changed with the fingerprint sensor and it actually has a headphone jack.
A dual camera has become a new trend among the smartphones.
Samsung has it, and so does iPhone.
But it seems that Xiaomi seems to follow the exact specifics of iPhone 7 when deciding the power lens for Mi A1.
It has 12 MP dual wide-angle lens and a 12 MP telephoto lens.
Moreover, it also has a “DSLR mode” that blurs the background so nicely that it gives a digital camera effect.
This feature is known as the portrait mode in the iPhone 7 Plus.
The camera also gives a great result in low light, which is something most phones fail to provide.
While they are almost identical, this “almost” suggests the differences.
While we are at it, let’s take a look:
- Xiaomi uses USB-C charging.
- Mi A1 has a headphone jack
- It runs on Android software
- It is half the price of iPhone 7.
So if you decide you want to get the experience of having a high-end phone at half the price, this is your best choice.
