The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite

The Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite is not a very recent model, having been launched at the end of 2019.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good; since it is also quite affordable, it is definitely a good choice.

Main results

The Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite arrived on the market with Android 9, so there are no problems for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices.
The 6.4″ screen is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
The Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite battery is standard: in our usage scenario, its 4030 mAh allow it to reach 30 hours, which is on average.
The 52 GB of actual available internal memory (64 GB declared) may be enough to store our data, if not, we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
It suffered some minor damages in our drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered quite robust.
Models in this price range are usually powerful, and this phone is among the best: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.


Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite has three rear cameras (the main one is 48 Mp) which allow you to get good quality photos, except in situations with little light where they only reach sufficiency.
This mobile phone has a 32 Mp front camera, which allows you to take pictures of just enough quality, so selfies are not exciting.
