As usual with this type of design, when the phone rang the vibration caused it to slide off my armchair and off papers on my desk. Indeed, it didn't need to vibrate to slide around: being sat at an angle was enough for it to slip. Like other handset-makers, Xiaomi provides a bumper case.
This protects the backplate and makes the phone easier to hold, but also hides the cleverly designed back. One day, hopefully, phone manufacturers will find a way to make the backs of their phones both aesthetic and ergonomic.
There is a 3. Volume from the single speaker goes loud enough, but bass tones are lacking. The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro is built around a near-bezel-free 6. Even the largest bezel, at the bottom of the phone, is just 3. The 2, by 1, pixel ppi resolution delivers bright, clear and sharp content. Ebook reading is enhanced thanks to a Reading Mode that reduces blue light. However, I'd prefer it if this mode could be set to kick in when specific apps are launched, rather than manually or on a timed schedule. The fingerprint sensor is an in-screen unit that's fast and effective. There is no camera notch on the screen.
When you want to take a selfie, a camera pops up from the top left edge, putting itself away when you're done. I'm not convinced about the concept of the pop-up camera: the motor is a point of failure, and if it does fail, your selfie days are over. That said, the front camera arrangement does allow for that much-desired all-screen frontage, and Xiaomi has covered three important bases as far as the mechanism is concerned.
It has been tested for , pop-ups -- probably more than even the most snap-happy selfie fans will require over the phone's lifetime. It will retract automatically when it detects pressure, although I found I had to apply a fair bit for this to work. And there's a clever anti-drop mechanism that will retract the camera if the handset falls through the air. I'm not sure we need the two blue side-lights that illuminate when the camera pops up and down, or its little tinkling trill of a musical flourish that ascends the scale when it rises from the chassis and descends when it packs away.
Both will be distracting in certain situations. You can disable sounds, but I couldn't see how to disable the lights.

The pop-up selfie camera is a 20MP unit with a clever panorama mode that allows you to take wide-format selfies just by tilting the phone. The default shooting mode is 12 megapixels, although there's a link to 48MP shooting on the main camera interface so it's easy to switch. AI helps the camera make default settings for a range of subjects, and I found its suggestions very satisfactory for the most part. The exception was night mode.
There is a dedicated night mode setting on the camera interface, and in well-lit situations images are passable.
But in general night photography is of average quality, and in low light situations you may struggle to get passable images. I've moved to Geekbench 5 for benchmarking and this reports rather differently to its predecessor. A three-pass average multi-core score of and single-core score of should not be compared with benchmarks made with Geekbench 4, but you can put these numbers into context by visiting the Geekbench results browser. I also ran single passes of the OpenCL and Vulkan GPU compute benchmarks for completeness, which returned scores of and respectively.

This kept going for 11 hours 26 minutes, and it's important to note that the PC Mark Work 2. The phone supports 27W fast charging, and comes with an 18W charger. That said, the phone did stumble a fair bit when I fired up the camera. The app itself takes a second to load, as it did when I switched between modes. As for games, most titles ran smoothly with no hiccups, including Asphalt 9 and Shadow Fight 3. Overall, the Mi 9 SE is no slouch, and it comfortably got me through a day of use, which included navigating with Google Maps, shooting photos, browsing, gaming, replying to email, and watching videos.
With three lenses and a ton of software imaging features, the Mi 9 SE is a versatile shooter.

The Mi 9 SE packs plenty of features and commendable performance into a small-ish package, and is a bargain at its asking price. Its software and imaging are solid — especially when compared to similarly priced phones — save for a few niggles. Credit: Abhimanyu Ghoshal.
