I was also considering this phone but the older sd 625 cpu, which also about 30 other xiaomi phones has, new and old made me pass, since the newer sd 636 which is a lot more powerful can be found on phones for about the same price. You might want to consider the redmi note 5 ai/pro or note 6 pro, if you don't mind miui, want faster cpu, and don't want a notch. But if you really want stock android, which is the a2 lite's main selling point and don't mind less performance which you may or may not notice depending on how you use it anyway.
Other phones you might consider that has sd 636 which is the cpu I recommend for within the price range of the a2 lite:
Nokia X6 - android one, usb type c port, looks a lot better than other phones in its price range imo, has a smaller 3060 mah battery
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 - not android one but very stock-ish and promised to have updates, has a bigger 5000mah battery
