This phone is designed for those who, although they like the standard Mi 9, are looking for a cheaper alternative in a compact size. Its performance is impeccable (keep in mind that this is not a Lite version of the Mi 9, which will probably come later, but a Special Edition) and its camera meets almost everything expectation. Leaving aside a battery that is not out of this world, I find few defects with this smartphone.
