Xiaomi Mi 9 SE Review

Score: 81.4 / 100

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is a brilliantly made cellphone launched in 2019, with a very fast 2.3 gigahertz Octa-Core processor, a really big 6-inches screen, a 48 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 20 MP front side camera.

This device feels much lighter than what you would expect from a device like this. The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is only for sale in color 16 777 216. This cellphone is just 0.29" thick, making it one of the thinnest cellphones out there. Whereas this cellphone is only 5.81 inches long, it still manages to pack a 6 inches display.

This phone includes an astonishing 6" screen with a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels that compose the screen.

This phone ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SDM712 chip, which holds a high-tech Octa-Core CPU ticking at 2.3 GHz and a great 6 GB of RAM memory. A great advantage of the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is its 128 GB astonishing internal storage and though it doesn't come with an external SD slot, it it is more than enough to install tons of applications, games, pictures and videos without having to worry about running out of space at all.

This cellphone counts with wi-fi connection (which it can provide to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G ultra fast internet connection and the fastest 3G connectivity, supported by HSPA and HSUPA technologies. The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE uses 2 Nano SIM cards so it can to work with two different phone numbers and even different carriers at the same time.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE has two cameras, a 48 MP back-facing camera and a 20 megapixels front-facing camera. the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE's back-facing camera has a maximum f/1.8 aperture so it can take sharp pictures even in low lighting situations. This phone can also film 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 frames per second, and slow motion videos in (HD) (1280x720) at 960 frames per second (32 times slower than regular videos).

The Xiaomi Mi 9 SE also comes with a wide variety of cool features as Fingerprint Sensor, Biometric facial recognition, NFC, Infrared Port, Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth phones, computers and accessories) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone uses a 3070 mAh inmense non-replaceable battery that provides this cellphone an amazing battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to get older, even though with this big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before that happens.

This phone is definitely a good choice for you no matter if you want this phone to take tons of photographs, are looking for a cellphone for playing games, will use this cellphone for work or will use it as a social cellphone.
