    I am thinking of buying this phone. But I am confused between, Mi A1. Which one would you recommend?

      Honor 7X offers a slightly bigger screen in almost the same size as Mi A1, whereas Mi A1 has stock Android and a slightly better camera performance in its favour. Both are quite evenly matched in rest of the features So, if you want stock Android and a slightly better camera, go for Mi A1, or if a bigger screen is something you desire, Honor 7X is the right choice.
