Bought it over two years ago. Managed to crush back glass three times, as well as fingerprint sensor once. Despite that, I still think, that this is a superb phone. Not only in RAM coverage, but also with overall experience - 128 GB is enough, expandable SD card slot is neat stuff (on all phones have it these days, shame), good battery life (although battery is weared after 2+ years and last for less, than 24h now), OK mid-end CPU (nothing too powerful, but more than enough for everyday use), good pack of speakers, 3.5 mm jack (I do not use it, but it is nice to have it).
Camera could be better, if you know how, you might want to enhance it, using some modded ROMs, kernels and other stuff. After some trials with installing stuff via TWRP I've managed to unlock 4K recording as well as 960FPS recording in 720p (phone does not support it by default) - that's a nice add-on, but you gotta be lucky to capture the moment, that you really want, because 960fps recording is only for few lasts seconds of clip (most likely it is due to CPU limitation)
MIUI is buggy in some places (mostly minor bugs), it also cames with some bloatware, than can be removed via adb (and I strongly recommend that). Been using only MIUI 12.5 with Android 11 the entire time, so I do not know about never versions (but I've stumbled across many voices, that it ain't as good, as they say).
For that price, I'm more than happy with this phone and I'll continue to use it for hopefully many more years.Pros
- beautiful colours of body
- general design of phone
- 8 GB of RAM
- 120Hz screen + good speakers
- lack of lagging and/or freezing
- some extra hidden options
- poor photo quality at night
- weak flash
- glassy back is fragile, even, when it's protected
- some bloatware to disable
- Good Hardware but bad software.
On paper it is incredible but in actual use its pretty bad. It freezes randomly and the only way to unfreeze is by restarting it. Many games just dont open or load in. Cameras are only good when the sun is bright enough to make you go blind. No need to try selfies, it will make you vomit. It doesnt feel like a high quality phone either. its not good for the prize even though its so cheap.
- It is a very good phone, it has good specifications at a good price
I've had it recently, but it has given me excellent performance, good photos, it runs smoothly in games, it doesn't get too hot, the battery lasts, in short, an excellent phone and nice designPros
- Battery and fast charging
- Excelent screen
- Nice design
- Without 5G
- It is not waterproof
- Awesome budget phone with MIUI as a con
Xiaomi is best when giving value for money phones and it nails on this one, this is the best all rounder and value for money phone. the only con I can say is MIUI which is buggy and can be frustating but if you know enough technical stuff you can install custom ROMs.
I have 64 MP Camera Setup and I had buyed it from Amazon in India.
Overall quite happy with the design, display, performance, audio an all rounder phone at such an good price of 17,500 Rs
- Pretty nice phone with reasonable price and capabilities
Bought it almost 18 months ago (back in July 2021). Good first impresions with size, colours, screen and general responsible time. MIUI is meh in general, but could be easily made to your own, desirable shape, since unlocking and rooting is generally simple here and there are LOTS of possibilities from that point.
First main feature of this phone, which is screen, should be protected with some sort of foil, despite having gorilla glass. Just for the sake of it. After year and a half in dirty, dusty and sometimes wet environment of my building site work, it still looks really sharp and colorful with no visible signs of wear. 120Hz still works well, maximum brightness gives visibility even in summer sun.
Second most known feature is pack of cameras. 108MP mode works well and produce nice photos, although it cannot be matched with more expensive phones like iPhone, Huawei, Pixel. Night photos are only OK (there are lots of room for improvment), camera can record only in 1080p 60 FPS without mods, but if you dig deeper, you could unlock 4K 60 FPS that looks really good and gives zero graphical/decoding bugs. Timelapse mode are nice addition, but 720p is a downsize these days.
General usage gave me no lags from system itself for the whole time. I've got some low response time from launcher apps as well as few downloaded apps freezes, but nothing too serious. Gotta be careful though, because some 3rd party apps somehow triggers MIUI to restart in random moments. Also got camera errors few times, but restarting device manages to get rid of it. 8 GB of ram is really plenty and I did not managed to slow phone because of application usage. CPU itself also works nice, however, I play games really rarely and spend most of my time with phone surfing on internet, so top grade CPU ain't for me.
Be careful though with falling - without proper case it breaks easily, as well as got loose NFC paths inside phone. Battery still holds 30% after whole day with BT on.Pros
- screen with it's refresh rate, colours and visibility
- beautiful colours of back plates
- Good camera (only decent in poor light)
- good battery (over 30% left after entire day)
- lack of lagging
- really fast face/finger unlock
- easily destroyable nfc lines inside phone
- minor MIUI-related bugs
- fragile glass on the back and on camera

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:
- Design and screen
- Hardware and performance
Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.
Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.
The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
