The mid-range of mobile phones is increasingly at odds, and it is easier than ever to find phones with more than enough features and above our expectations even with the most content price. Today we compare the Motorola One Vision against the Xiaomi Mi A3 , two of the most popular mid-range.
What was once a rarity, having pure Android on a Chinese mobile phone, today is more common than ever, something that these two Chinese terminals, which have Android One as an operating system, show us in the best possible way.

Screen and dimensions
This is undoubtedly one of the determining aspects of both phones, because there is a capital difference when choosing one of these panels. In the case of Motorola One Vision we have a 6.3-inch screen with Full HD + resolution , which also has no edges thanks to a perforated camera in the upper corner. Another of its highlights is that the screen has an aspect ratio of 21: 9, the most panoramic you’ll find on the market, similar to the one used by movie screens.
In the case of the Xiaomi Mi A3 the screen has been one of the big disappointments, because in addition to being smaller, with 6.09 inches, it only has HD + resolution , at the level of cheaper phones in the input range. Of course, in your favor, this is OLED in front of the Motorola LCD, its notch is in the form of a drop of water. As for the dimensions, the Motorola measures 160.1 x 71.2 x 8.7 mm and weighs 180 grams. For its part, the Xiaomi has dimensions of 153.5 x 71.9 x 8.5 mm and weighs somewhat less, almost 174 grams. The Moto is bigger in every way, but its elongated screen makes a difference.
Performance and memory
Here there is some equality, although we lean in favor of the Xiaomi. Because it mounts a very solvent processor, the Snapdragon 665 , which we have also seen in many Motorola midrange. In the case of the One Vision we have a Samsung processor , the Exynos 9609 , which far from what it may seem is slightly more powerful than the Qualcomm. But as you know, normally the public is inclined to Snapdragons, in the long run, when adding custom ROMs there is always more support for Snapdragons.
Regarding RAM, the Motorola comes with 4GB while the cheaper Xiaomi model integrates the same RAM. Regarding storage, there are important differences, with 128GB for the One Vision and 64GB for the Mi A3, in both cases expandable by microSD cards.
In this aspect the Motorola One Vision has an important advantage, its night mode which is what gives the terminal its name. This has a dual camera that boasts a 48-megapixel sensor with Quad Pixel technology that is capable of capturing four times more light accompanied by another 5-megapixel sensor. In addition, artificial intelligence does the rest in its night mode to make spectacular photos at night with maximum light. In front of him, his selfie camera is 25 megapixels.
For its part, the Xiaomi has a triple camera, also with the 48 megapixel sensor also with characteristics almost identical to those of the One Vision, although without presuming that night. It has two other 8 and 2 megapixel sensors. In front of the camera has more resolution, 32 megapixels.
Battery, connectivity and software
In this aspect the Xiaomi wins by a win with 4030mAh and fast charging of 18W , while the One Vision stays at 3500mAh with fast charging of 15W. In terms of connectivity, both have Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C connector and everything we expect from a mobile in terms of wireless connectivity.
In favor of Motorola we find NFC connectivity to make mobile payments. As for the software, we can expect the same from both, because they have Android One, the operating system that offers a pure Android experience. In the two cases currently based on Android 9, although soon they will receive Android 10.
Price and conclusion
Currently we can find the Xiaomi Mi A3 for about 179 euros, while the Motorola One Vision has a cost of about 205 euros. 25 euros difference for those who think it is better mobile and better buy the Motorola One Vision right now . Simply because its screen is much better, more panoramic, ideal for enjoying movie-like content, as well as having more resolution than the Xiaomi. In addition its night mode is a differential feature that offers a spectacular result in low light and has twice the internal storage.
The Xiaomi Mi A3 stands out for its Snapdragon 665 processor, well proven and solvent, while its battery offers greater autonomy. Also your selfie camera is better, at least it has more resolution than Motorola. In short, both phones are good purchases, but the Motorola One Vision screen and its camera are enough reasons to get it.
