Xiaomi Mi A1 vs Honor 7X: Full specs, budget price comparison


What is the best smartphone for a PHP 10k budget?

Xiaomi’s Mi A1 was the apple of the eye of those looking for a PHP 10,000 budget smartphone. Yet, as the Honor 7X launched globally, some people are asking which is a better device among the two? So, let’s get it on in order to find out the better smartphone for you.

If you’re into gaming, the Mi A1 is the smartphone to go since the 7X also sports the same specs as the Nova 2i which isn’t for heavy gaming. While if you’re into just watching movies or selfies, the Honor 7X is a premium choice already. Bottomline, it’s still up to the consumer to decide. However, the Honor 7X isn’t still available in the PH as of now. But its 4GB RAM variant was spotted on sale at Lazada.
