If you are not the type of a demanding user and would not be nitpicking then, this phone might be just about right for you..
Do not agree with the article regarding competition.
Mi9 has no headphone jack, mi9t is ugly as hell. it is not a pretty phone at all. also no micro sd slot. ( at 128gb not super needed, but still nice).
redmi phones don't have NFC. the note8 pro has it in some markets. But it's even bigger than mi9 lite. also camera on mi9 lite is better than note8 pro. actually generaly i find the mi phones have better cameras than the redmis. they just have nicer warmer colors.
Mi9 lite is a uniquie proposition in my opinion. I have one and love it. only thing i would like is for it to a bit smaller, maybe like the p30. which is it's only other real competitor in my opinion. At least based on my criteria.
hello i have 4 questions about the device mi 9 lite:
1) Does it support micro sd cards in ex-FAT format?
2) Does it support USB OTG?
3) If you have the global version can you tell me if the software MIUI on that device show ads?
4) Is the device able to play YouTube/Netflix/Amazon prime video content on full HD 1080p?
Thank you great review

Anonymous, 20 Dec 2019Xiaomi Mi 9 lite or Samsung a50 ? Thanks in advanceMi 9 Lite.
My phone's SOT is not very good(about 6-6.5 hours) as in youtube "battery drain" videos. I don't play heavy games. I haven't updated my phone to Miui 11 yet. Do you recommend a hard reset?
Xiaomi Mi 9 lite or Samsung a50 ?
Thanks in advance
very high SAR!
5¢ input. All manufactures should work towards battery optimisation outside of Google framework. That's not external applications such as CCleaner etc. I'm talking making our phones last the day using the mAh that's included. I want my phone manufacturer to say this phone will play a 1080p YouTube video for 8 hours at a brightness that is viewable in a shaded but sunlit area. That's what's required. A standard on viewable content in a set set situation. STANDARDS manufactures. STANDARDS for the people. This is 2020!
Houssem-mkachikh, 20 Dec 2019Not true, the g90t from mediatek is more powerful than snapdragon 710 712 730.The G90T is a 2.05Ghz octacore chipset that utilised a 12nm manufacturing technology.
The Snapdragon S710 chipset is a 2.2Ghz octacore chipset that utilises a 10nm manufacturing technology.
While the Snapdragon is older it is based on a quality chip made by a manufacturer that has continued to be more reliable. Mediatek continue to achieve better thresholds but don't ever think for one second it's main chip better because it's newer. I don't hate on Mediatek and Xiaomi have embrased them of late with the Mi Note 8, but Mediatek have a way to go before proving themselves.
Don't all let that stop you from buying what you want or need. The Mi 9 Lite has issues I know of already. The screen at brightness drains the battery before the day and that happens when set to adaptive brightness, 3/4 or full brightness. AMOLED, it's great but when it's lit it's a bitch :)
Houssem-mkachikh, 20 Dec 2019Not true, the g90t from mediatek is more powerful than snapdragon 710 712 730.More powerful? Who cares? It will lose its power after few months. And no system updates.

Anonymous, 16 Dec 2019Mi 9 Lite or Redmi Note 8? I'm not a gamer or heavy user. Will there be huge speed difference?... moreWell if you want a fast phone which would never lag you need to buy:
1. Flagship (they have everything great and make no compromises)
2. Gamer phone (they're not lagging but make compromises such as screen, camera, etc)
That's generally speaking.
As for these two you ask about, they're good. Mi 9 Lite is a bit more expensive than Note 8, but it's also a bit better. Price tells you. Surely better screen, little bit better camera, but even better performance etc.
Deciede with your wallet. Also ask for more advices from users who had both.
is true that ni9 lite has some issues with gps?actually there is the only weakliness the gps ,at least so impotant serious matter !!!So has somebody who have thiss devise notised that ..please answer ,i intent to buy mi9 lite and gps is deal breaker for me..(i hope not this mobile is first in my list with huge distance from second choise...:);)
Michelle, 15 Dec 2019Does the Mi 9 Lite camera protrude outside TPU silicon case? I'm afraid of that. No, with TPU case it's completely flat.

mi trillema, 16 Dec 2019What is best buy between these 3 phones?
Mi 9 lite
Mi 9T for 50 euros extra
Mi 9T Pro for ... moreThose 3 phone are not the same.
The pure money dilemma should exist only between Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro. They're the same, in general specs and in build, e.g. same dimensions, both have pop-up camera, etc.
Mi 9T Pro is more advanced ie better. If you like what these two offer buy one. And if you have 100€ extra, then buy Mi 9T Pro.
Mi 9 Lite is cheapest ie the weakest but it it offers IR and a notch instead of pop-up camera, and an audio jack at the top. For some that could be highly desirable.
