Xiaomi Mi 9 SE: The Best Cost-effective Mi Phone I've Ever Owned!

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE: The Best Cost-effective Mi Phone I've Ever Owned!

I plan to change my mobile phone in the middle of this year. Then Xiaomi’s press conference came a bit early and I was entangled in whether or not to buy a Xiaomi Mi 9 SE. 

Then I thought of the supply situation, as Xiaomi smartphones are always in short of supply. Finally, I decided to buy it.

After using Xiaomi Mi 9 SE for a month, I just want to say that hardcore players, severe mainstream users, photography fanatic, and consumers can all consider buying Xiaomi Mi 9 SE! This is the best way to use several hundred dollars. Xiaomi's cost-performance is also reflected in this price.

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, top smartphones for 2019, has only 156g weight and the optimized waterdrop notch display. 

I am not demanding for the fascinating color, but it always feels a little bit dull with a black shell, so I bought a blue one this time. To my surprise, it impressed me at the very first sight with the aesthetic glossy holographic pattern.


The overall workmanship of the mobile phone is very solid. The back of the phone made of glass offers a great tactile experience, both sides are blue stainless steel, the screen is protected by the fifth generation Corning glass. It feels great in the hand, a bit like holding an iPhone XS, but the former is much lighter, so I like grabbing it!

In terms of performance, Snapdragon 712 is compared as an ultra-frequency version of the 710, about 10% faster than the Snapdragon 710. The performance of the main core has been improved by 0.1 GHz, playing games on a daily basis will never be a problem. Moreover, the games can be set at high frame rates.

Considering the boot time of applications, when you open some commonly used applications, its fluency should be praised and basically meet the needs of most people. This means that an App can be opened immediately, in other words, you don’t need to wait at all.

As far as the imaging system is concerned, the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE has won the championship in this field with absolute superiority, so the camera performance is definitely a highlight.

First of all, whether it is the amazing resolution of its 48MP primary camera, or the ultra-wide angle lens, 8MP telephoto lens, coupled with the 20MP selfie camera, Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is worthy of the name of "flagship of camera phone".

As I am fond of taking photos, recording the beautiful or happy moments in my life, one of the reasons why I chose Mi 9 SE is that its small camera not only looks beautiful but also upscale. The photo quality is wonderful!

Is it hard for you to believe that these photos were taken by a small mobile phone?

Yes. However, the 1/2 inch photosensitive area of the image sensor is really impressive, and the good performance in night mode is also due to the support of IMX586.

Nevertheless, the only drawback is that when the camera directly outputs 48MP photos in professional mode, the camera will be a bit tardy in some cases. In fact, it is not a big problem, whereas, this affects the performance slightly.


In terms of battery capacity, 3070mAh is really a little inadequate for most users nowadays. Whether you can accept this or not depends on your choice between one-hand operation and battery life.

But what can supplement the lack of battery life is that it supports 18W fast charging, and the charging speed ranks on top of the smartphones.


I believe Xiaomi Mi 9 SE will be your best choice at this price range, if: 

A.you are eager to hold and operate your phone with one hand;

B.you would like to play games while having a thin and good-looking phone;

C.you are a photo socialist with higher requirements for your mobile phone camera;

D.you are not particularly concerned about battery life.

After using Xiaomi Mi 9 SE for a month, I recalled the old saying that Steve Jobs said, “users don't know what they want until you put something in front of them.”
