Xiaomi has made its way into the world of smartphones thanks to well-made devices, excellent specs, and low prices. If you are looking for a new Xiaomi smartphone, take a look at the list of the best devices divided into categories and prices.
If you are looking for an elegant smartphone with excellent specifications and a high price-to-performance ratio, Xiaomi Mi 9 SE is the one for you. For less than €400 you will take home a compact version of Mi 9, but should you give up on the top model?
The display is still an AMOLED but shrinks to 5.97 inches (maintaining the same resolution), the SoC is the Snapdragon 712 (sufficient to complete any task without batting an eyelid, gaming aside) and the triple camera remains even if with a different configuration (48MP + 8MP + 16MP). For selfies, the 20-megapixel lens remains. Another small waiver is linked to the battery, that switches to a 3,070mAh.

the Xiaomi Mi 9 was released at the beginning of 2019 at the MWC in Barcelona. This smartphone has nothing to envy to the big names thanks to snappy hardware consisting of the Snapdragon 855 SoC, 6GB/8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. The large 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a FullHD + resolution is pleasant in terms of brightness and color reproduction. To protect it is present the Gorilla Glass 6.
Its strong point is the camera, consisting of three sensors on the back:
- 48MP main lens, 27mm focal length, f/1.8 aperture
- Wide-angle 16MP, focal length 13mm, aperture f/2.2
- 12MP telephoto lens, 54 mm focal length, f/2.2 aperture
To complete the package we find a 20-megapixel f/2.0 front camera dedicated to selfies and a 3,300 mAh battery that can quickly recharge even without wires to 20W.

How not to include this smartphone in the ranking? Xiaomi's MIX series has always had a keen eye for design and new technologies. We remember that Xiaomi Mi MIX was the first smartphone in the world to show off a borderless design on three sides, as has been so fashionable for two years now, and one of the first to adopt a ceramic construction.
The latest addition to the series, the Mi MIX 3, features an innovative design with a slider that hides a 24-megapixel front camera dedicated to selfies and the speaker for calls. On the back, there is a dual 12-megapixel camera (normal and telephoto) and the Snapdragon 845 takes care of everything. And if you want the latest version you should focus on Mi Mix 3 5G , presented in Barcelona at the beginning of the year.

Redmi is the new brand launched by Xiaomi. As happened last year with Pocophone (and as shown by Huawei with Honor) the launch of a new brand allows the company to deviate slightly from its classic devices. However, this Redmi Note 7 still shows a strong presence of Xiaomi DNA and this is good!
For less than €180, the Redmi Note 7 is able to offer the same 48-megapixel camera its the big brothers, a 6.3-inch IPS screen with a FullHD+ resolution and a more than enough SoC for this price range, the Snapdragon 660 from Qualcomm. The strong point of this smartphone, however, is the excellent battery life thanks to a 4,000mAh lithium-ion cell which coupled with the low-power processor guarantees incredible battery life.
