Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite: serious mid-range competition

Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite: Rundes Gesamtpaket mit nur kleinen Schwächen
Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite: Rundes Gesamtpaket mit nur kleinen Schwächen
Xiaomi’s Mi Lite 9 is yet another solid device in the sub $300 range. The idea to cram plenty of performance and upper-class features into a mid-range device works very well.

For a long time, Xiaomi’s smartphones have been offering a great price-performance ratio. Connectivity is almost always remarkable and since Xiaomi’s in-house MIUI Android user interface has been released as reliable Global edition localization is no longer an issue.

The Mi 9 Lite impressed us with its hardware, including the in-screen fingerprint reader and good camera, and raised the bar for its competitors quite a bit. Granted, the camera did not perform particularly great in low-light situations but was otherwise more than just usable. Xiaomi is also a manufacturer trying to balance the PWM flickering so typical for OLED panels via DC dimming. While this does not result in a flicker-free display it raises the frequency significantly for higher levels of brightness, which can be a relief for many PWM-sore eyes.

We would also like to mention one last thing. MIUI Global 10.3.6 turned out to be a easily and readily usable user interface. However, certain system settings require an internet connection as well as a Mi account. Sharing usage data for an app is one such example. Other Android smartphones do not require a Google account or internet connection in order to modify these.

I carried out my first IT experiments with a 386-based system and a whole 4 MB RAM. This was followed by work on various PCs and laptops that I maintained and repaired for friends and acquaintances. After training to become a Telecommunications Systems Technician and gaining a few years of experience, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. Currently, I pursue my fascination for IT, technology, and mobile devices by writing reviews and articles for Notebookcheck. I have also worked for Gamestar, Netzwelt, and Golem, among others.

Born in the United States and raised in Germany I became acquainted with both languages from an early age and turned this into my profession later in life. Computers have always played an important role in my life, and my love for all things digital is a huge part of my daily routine. Virtual Reality has captured my imagination and interest in particular, and I cannot wait to see what the (near) future will bring.
