The last two years have been a shock to the mobile phone market. They have been in two ways: on the one hand the landing of Xiaomi has forced virtually all brands to adjust their price-quality ratio to the maximum. Also the arrival of new brands from China, such as Realme and Vivo. On the other hand, new online stores have appeared that have pushed prices down like never before.
The result is that there are dozens of mobiles of less than 200 euros that can serve virtually anyone , some of them with benefits for which you had to buy expensive phone.
In the section of good and cheap mobiles there is an unquestionable queen: Xiaomi, although some of its smartphones are high-end, in the case of the Xiaomi Mi 9 or the Mi MIX 3 .

There is where to choose, so you should not worry if you do not know which mobile of less than € 200 is better in 2020. Depending on your needs, one or the other will be better for you .

Xiaomi Mi A3
Presented just a few weeks ago, the Xiaomi Mi A3 is one of the most anticipated mobiles of 2019, although perhaps this expectation has played against it. Some say it is not up to the previous versions, although it probably is not right.
It maintains Android One as an operating system, the hallmark of the Xiaomi Mi A line . In addition, it solves one of the problems of its predecessor: the battery, which rises 4,030 mAh capacity and gives some slack that the Mi A2 did not have.
It also improves the processor, which is now a Snapdragon 665 , something more powerful than the 660, but not too much not to negatively affect autonomy.
What does decrease with respect to last year is the screen resolution, which “only” is HD +, although thanks to the AMOLED panel it looks pretty good , hence we can say that the Mi A3 is a good evolution of the previous model, Although not a complete revolution.
