Another interesting smart phone from Xiaomi’s workshop was to our newsroom. You may not be able to test it, but we’ve got you, our many faithful portal visitors, social network viewers, and Youtube channel viewers, a lot of questions about how to test it. And here’s the new Xiaomi Mi 8 SE we’ve got, we just try it out and here’s our first quick impressions. I will only mention that we have obtained our test copy at the popular Honorbuy webshop in neighboring Italy.
The first impression – beautiful and slim. The theory says it is even thinner than Mi 8, and it is lighter. And smaller. The glass case is elegant and beautiful, the frame is of course metal. I’m not personally a personal fan of glassware, I prefer “metal” because this type of smartphone loves without reason to slide from the table. The solution is in a silicone case that is happily in the box and which I believe many will take advantage of.
First I was interested in how the new Qualcomm processor works. Namely, the Mi 8 SE is one of the first smartphones, if not the first one, and it was made with the new Snapdragon 710 at 2.2 GHz, and I was interested in how to play video games on the Adreno 616 graphics and in such a short time I managed to make a smile on our face, the games are expected to be great. The screen is great, even better than I expected, almost dared say better than the Mi 8 model, because it’s a Super AMOLED that has a lively color and better lighting. Even when I measured the brighter than the declared 600 Lux, our device measured up to 729 Lux, which is a pleasant surprise.smile on our face, the games are expected to work great.

Another pleasant surprise is the excellent sound. It is strong and has quality, I feel the depth of the tones, which I of course noticed on video games, but also on music and movies. Xiaomi Mi 8 SE proved to be a true multimedia machine that will display its content on a 5.88 inch FHD + resolution screen … of course with the “tooth” 🙂 And the sound we measured, the over-the-counter power.
Many will be interested in what kind of cameras are. When I realized by the way that the sound was even better than I expected, I was hoping that the camera situation would be at the same rate – above expectations. The front is as large as 20 MP and can be expected to shoot great selfie photos, of course it supports Face ID, while the rear doubles of 12 MP + 5 MP – the main camera is the same as the Mi 8 or the Sony IMX 363 sensor, some differences so that the expected advantage of having a camera on his stronger brother who also has optical stabilization, this is not. But it can record in RAW mode, which is great for later image processing, and there is a “slim” effect of 1080p @ 120fps.
We’ve captured a few quick photos, here they are, so you can evaluate them yourself. Of course, much more detail about the cameras awaits you in a detailed review we will soon release.
