Conclusion: Motorola One Power vs Xiaomi Mi A2 (4 GB)

Well both the Motorola One Power and the Xiaomi Mi A2 are excellent budget smartphones that offer pure stock Android experience but they have some significant differences. Although the Xiaomi Mi A2 excels in performance & rear camera quality, the Motorola One Power is not far behind in those two departments and along with a huge battery, it also comes with a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a dedicated microSD card slot which are the two biggest turn offs for the Mi A2. The choice is very clear among the two phones, while both provide stock Android and guaranteed software updates, the Xiaomi Mi A2 is for those who look forward to more performance with the SD 660 or one of the best rear cameras for the price, the Motorola One Power is a more balanced & feature rich phone which is very good for all types of users and doesn’t force you to make any serious compromise.
