Xiaomi Mi A1 Android One Smartphone Sold for $159.99 (Promo)

Xiaomi Mi A1 was the first Android One smartphone by Xiaomi. It’s been my main phone for nearly a year, and with a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a decent 5.5″ full HD display, I’m pretty satisfied with it, especially  I’m getting firmware updates nearly monthly, including security updates and new version of Android.

But an updated model, Xiaomi Mi A2 (Lite) has just been launched, so it should come as no surprise that Mi A1 is getting some discount, and that’s exactly what Banggood has done by offering Xiaomi Mi A1 phone for $159.99 shipped with coupon BGA164BMY.

Did you have network instability as many other A1 users?
Are you on the stock ROM?
