Both luminance and chromatic noise are low in all flash pictures, again due to the good noise reduction, which nonetheless also retains good levels of fine detail. This is a good score for zoom, which is especially capable at 2x magnification in both outdoor and indoor lighting conditions lux. Indeed, the Xiaomi Mi 8 captures quite high levels of detail at lux. Troublesome color noise is very low, but some luminance noise is visible.

A very fine score for the bokeh simulation mode, which renders a quite effective and mostly realistic-looking background blur, with smooth transitions in front of and behind the subject.

Nevertheless, dynamic range in videos is good, with the Mi 8 capturing good levels of detail in the brightest and darkest regions of high-contrast scenes.
Color is also good in low light, capturing slightly more vivid color compared to premium rivals, though the result is pleasant and not too overpowering. Xiaomi might not be the first name to think of when looking for a high-end smartphone, but the Mi 8 offers camera performance that is up there with the best. It has good dynamic range and a genuinely usable telephoto option with good quality 2x magnification, as well as an effective simulated bokeh mode.

If you want the very best phone Xiaomi has right now, the Mi Note 10 is what you need to look for. Looking at the specs list and images, you'd be forgiven for thinking this phone was a top-end flagship phone, with a curved screen, MP main camera and huge battery pack.

Release date: March Weight: g Dimensions: The Xiaomi Mi 9 is the best Xiaomi phone you can buy right now, offering some impressive features at a low price.

If you want a phone that's close to the Xiaomi Mi 9 but want to spend a bit less money, then the Mi 9 SE is for you — it's got many of the features of the top-rated Xiaomi phone, but in a scaled-down format.
It's smaller, with a few weaker specs in a few areas, like slightly lower-resolution cameras and a mid-tier chipset, but there's still a lot to like, especially in terms of its design and display.

Release date: November Weight: g Dimensions: The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a sliding camera array, so if you want to take a selfie you pull up the rear section — it means the screen isn't broken up by a notch or punch-hole, giving you a glorious full-screen experience. Other than that, the Mi Mix 3 is a competent mid-range device, with a decent battery life, top-end for late processor and two rear cameras.
We found the slider a little stiff, and as a whole the phone is on the large side. But if you want a mid-range phone with a fun party trick, this is a great option. There's a 5G variant too, which will cost you a little more. Read our full Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 review.

There are a few issues here — among other things there's only one speaker and it's easy to cover with your hands , and it's not waterproof. But you may decide that you can live with such shortcomings given the low price tag. Read our full Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro review.
The Pocophone F1 is currently the only handset from Pocophone, although more could be on the horizon. It's a pretty good budget device, with some specs you wouldn't expect at the price, including a Snapdragon processor and big 4,mAh power pack.
Sure, not all the specs here compare favorably with phones at a similar price released in — the camera specs especially are a little on the weak side — but once again it's the low price that's the big selling point here. Release date: September Weight: g Dimensions: Before the Mi 9 introduced the West to Xiaomi in a big way the company arrived in several markets, including the UK, with the Mi 8 Pro.
It's certainly an interesting device, and it was an impressive debut.
