Xiaomi Mi A1 VS Moto G5S Plus Comparison which one is the best?



So, Let's start...




Design and Build :

The Moto G5S Plus carries the same trademark Moto design which we have seen on G5 and G5 Plus before. On the other hand, the Mi A1 sports a totally new design when compared to existing Xiaomi phones, but lies on the same iPhonesque design language which all of us have seen on other Chinese counterparts like OnePlus 5, Oppo R11 and more. 

So Moto undoubtedly beats Xiaomi in terms of originality here, but we cannot ignore the fact that the Mi A1 has a great in-hand feel from every angle. It’s not that the Moto feels worse but the thinness and roundness of the Mi A1 feels much better. 


Display :

  • Xiaomi A1: 13.5cm (5.5-inch) Full HD Display with 2.5D curved glass with Corning Gorilla Glass.
  • Moto G5S Plus: 13.97cm (5.5-inch) Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 + Splash proof Protection.

Winner ?

  • Moto G5S Plus


Camera :
  • Xiaomi A1 : 12MP+12MP (Wide angle + telephoto), 2x Optical Zoom with 1.25m large pixels. 5MP front camera
  • The dual camera system on the Mi A1 allows you to capture images with depth of field effects. It also offers 2X optical zoom just like the iPhone 7 Plus.

  • Moto G5S Plus : 13MP + 13MP with depth editor, 8x Digital Zoom and ƒ/2.0 aperture. 8MP front camera with Wide-angle lens
  • The G5S Plus has two 13MP sensors at the back with an aperture of f/2.0 that work together to offer features such as selective focus, background replacement and selective black and white colouring.
