The Mi 9 SE succeeds the Mi 8 SE and is the Mi 9’s midrange sibling. The SE is leaner and more compact than its flagship namesake, but it still managed to positively surprise us. Read on to find out what impressed us and if the Mi 9 SE has any shortcomings.
90% Xiaomi Mi 9 SE UK Review
Source: PC Advisor English
At £349 there's very little out there to compete with Mi 9 SE. It looks and feels like a flagship, only with a mid-range processor and without wireless charging and waterproofing. A gorgeous smartphone with a fantastic camera, you won't go far wrong with Mi 9 SE.

Overall, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is quite impressive, just like its older sibling, the standard Mi 9. It delivers a pretty good performance, has a good battery life, and despite having a single down-firing speaker, the audio quality is decent. It’s priced a little higher than its peers in the mid-range market but, as the baby Mi 9, you pretty much get a smartphone that has flagship features and won’t turn the insides of your wallet to dust.

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE Review: Just Right
Source: Unbox English
The Mi 9 SE offers a great mix of size, performance and camera chops in a small and handy package. And since this is Xiaomi, the price for the Mi 9 SE is just right – at Php 15,990 for the 64GB variant, it’s one of the best value mid-range phones you can buy today. If you’ve been scouring for a mid-range device that takes great photos, has excellent overall performance in a beautiful glass body, you might want to try out Xiaomi’s Mi 9 SE.

72% Обзор Xiaomi Mi 9 SE: мощная начинка и низкая цена
Source: Hexus English
Впрочем, некоторых функций все равно не хватает. Например, хочется видеть влагозащиту стандарта IP68 и оптическую стабилизацию хотя бы в одной из камер. Плюс отдельный слот для microSD-карт для многих явно не станет лишним. Увы, этих возможностей нет даже во флагманской модели, так что требовать их от урезанной версии нелогично. Зато последняя стоит намного дешевле: версию с 64 ГБ памяти можно купить всего за 24 990 рублей — на «десятку» дешевле, чем обычный Mi 9 с таким же объемом памяти.

In fact, for the Xiaomi Mi9 SE this product, I personally quite favor. After all, after getting used to the big screen mobile phone, the weight of this 155g and the small size are really pleasing, especially the small classmates, how easy it is to hold one hand with ease!

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Xiaomi:
