The terminal is made to please
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite is what I love in terms of design and price. Physically, this is not surprising because it is somewhat continuous with the lines seen in other models of the brand and the combination of materials and finishes already prevalent. However, in general it meets the minimum requirement that anyone would ask for a phone at a certain price.
So, along with the shiny finish on the back, this is a product that attractive as soon as taken out of the box and what you like after first holding it in your hand It’s good, not on the level of the Mi 10 or other models of the higher range and price, but in general I don’t think whoever bets on it will be unhappy.
Going into details Mi 10 Lite retains 3.5mm headphone jack and at the bottom you will find the USB C connector, SIM tray, microphone and speaker. And already on the right side there are two buttons for turning on and off, as well as a volume control. Done, the rest of the leading role is taken by the front.
Therefore, before moving on to discussing the screen, I must conclude by reaffirming that while the device does not break mold, it has little to envy other suggestions. It is possible that trasería could have had other brighter colors or designs similar to those seen in different models, but if you are not looking for something very special, you will love it.
AMOLED technology, albeit with insufficient brightness
On the front you will find 6.57-inch AMOLED panel A screen that, yes, the edges don’t have a more rounded finish than higher-end offerings. It’s not a problem, but when you get used to the continuity that it offers, it’s true that it’s very amazing to find something like this. Either way, it’s a matter of adaptation, and it’s done quickly.
As for image quality, here is a panel with good performance in all types of content The color presentation convinces, so does the contrast, viewing angles and tactile response. But it’s true that it lacks a little more brightness. Not for indoor use, no problem, but for the street.
That being said, I’m not saying you can’t use it or that it looks bad when you’re in full sunlight, but it costs a little more than with other models. Plus or extra in terms of maximum brightness levels would have been great, but that still meant a price increase. This is something that only Xiaomi will know.
In general, the screen during these days of use, I admit that it did not give me any problems. Indoors the experience was satisfactory, and outdoors, due to the type of use I gave or needed, it was also good even when I wanted to take pictures and demanded to see well if everything was framed and exposed correctly.
Sound, autonomy and safety
With these three sections, I will go quickly because today it is really hard to find a device that doesn’t match each one. And those who excel in some or all of themselves get the attention they deserve so you know they are offering something different from the rest.
This time, as I said, Mi 10 Lite performs well in terms of sound quality I like the sound in a wide variety of situations, although when listening to music, watching a TV series and even a movie, I always resort to good headphones that we already have on the market and which we taught you as the type of True Wireless.
As an additional fact, MIUI settings have different options to be able to customize the sound via equalizer options or sound booster when you are using wired headphones or speakers with which you can choose what type they are and take advantage of the preset settings. So, to get a little more performance, you just have to spend a few minutes trying different options.
Autonomy, s 4,160mAh battery and 20W fast charging, just say it lasts well for a day and a half of use. The charging system won’t be the fastest on the market, but it is also more than enough for that necessary nudge on days of heavy use. So there is no need to worry about autonomy, because it more than matches what any average user requests from the terminal today.
Finally, security is ensured by a classic pin or pattern, built-in fingerprint scanner and a face recognition system. You don’t need to say anything about the first, about the second, which quickly and accurately at least I didn’t have any noticeable problems using it; and the third is the same, it may not be the safest, but it is fast and convenient.
Do you really need that much energy?
If you ask how the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite behaves, the answer is, do you really need that much energy? Today we are still determined to have the fastest chips on the market, but we forget that 90% of everyday tasks do not require as much processing power.
Mi 10 Lite brings together Qualcomm Snpadragon 765G chip with 5G connectivity. The latter may be the case today, despite the real bet that operators are already making, but if we focus on the processor’s capabilities at the level of calculation and GPU / GRAPHIC PROCESSOR power, we have a wonderful terminal.
Yes, in everyday use of the operating system, common applications, playing multimedia content and even playing games, the terminal is great. I may not need to play the most demanding games on the Play Store, but the ones I’ve tried have always worked flawlessly.
Logically, here I should also give MIUI credit. Xiaomi’s customization level takes years at a very good level and its maturity is noted with every new release. It remains and will be very personal, many can be overwhelmed by the number of customization options and settings, but it also has its positive side for adapting the phone to your needs, rather than the other way around.
So with that all clear and above, let’s move on to the section that I liked the most: his cameras.
A very paying set of cameras
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite has five cameras One on the front that serves as the theme of easy unlocking and everything to do with selfies, story recording, etc.
With a 16MP sensor, the quality is good, in videos it’s true that I notice too much detail and stabilization is noticeable due to its lack, but these are things that don’t surprise me at all. All in all, this can give quite a lot of play in the usual situations in which we use this camera. Here are a couple of examples.
As for the main camera, this one has four sensors, of which I would say that only two are really important : main 48 megapixels and wide-angle 8 megapixels. A 2MP macro sensor and a depth-of-field sensor will be useful, but the user will not appreciate them the way they would with other types of suggestions.
However, the two hardest sensors are the ones that will give you the best experience and the ones you’ll use the most. Moreover, they both justify the good performance of the terminal in photography.
Together with modes and options offered The points, aspects such as exposure, white balance and accuracy when shooting colors and the level of detail, pleasantly surprised me. You don’t always get the perfect catch, but in global computing it convinces me.
Without going into more “creative” modes, one of the things that works pretty well is being able to expose yourself without burning out the glare. Something where HDR is also very responsible for a very good job. Even in the following images, where there are dark and light areas, as you can see below.
I also like the way the color is interpreted. Maybe something satiating in certain cases, but nothing artificial in my tests. This is one example where, without any editing, you get pretty realistic flower colors in full sunlight at noon.
At the same time, in good light, the Mi 10 Lite cameras work without problems, like the rest of almost all cameras on the market of a certain level and even high-end ones.
When the light falls or gets a little more complex, this decrease in quality is noticeable, but it does not fall as much as other proposals. Moreover, it supports the type better than some options, which are two or three times more expensive than the Mi 10 Lite.
In video themes, Mi 10 Lite also responds well … The main sensor offers very good stabilization and you can achieve amazing results. My only problem is that I still think the iPhones record the best video, perhaps because they don’t apply that kind of harshness to the end result, but with a little knowledge, this Xiaomi phone can also be quite competent.
A simple phone to recommend
Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite has set itself the task of convincing those who, for one reason or another, could not or wanted to choose more expensive models: Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. After these days of testing, I became aware of the limitations regarding the fact that it is not for nothing that they are cheaper than these, but if you take into account both the price and what it offers in terms of performance, Mi 10 Lite seems to me to be very easy to recommend a phone.
To receive you need to 329 euros, this is what the 64 GB model or 399 euros for 128 GB is worth, I think I can now say that this is one of the best in this price range that you can buy. It is superior in terms of benefits, and the camera, one of the benefits most of us then value most, is quite capable.
Adding the whole subject of 5G connectivity, NFC, fast charging, AMOLED screen, etc. I think little or nothing more could be asked. Lower price? Always, but considering how much the other current models on the market cost, if you are looking for a solvent offer of between three hundred and four hundred euros, a few better ones will now come to my mind to recommend you.
Moreover, I We can say that this is the best of the Mi 10 family. It is true that this title will always be for the Mi 10 Pro by a simple technical sheet, but I admit that I missed little with this cheaper version of one of the important series of the manufacturer this 2020.
