Xiaomi 12 Lite review

 

The Xiaomi 12 Lite arrives a bit later than the rest of the 12 series. Aside from the completely revamped, boxy and trendy design, it brings an updated...

Fresh and lightweight design, thin bezels.

Battery life could be a bit better.

Sadly, battery life keeps us from giving the handset an excellent score, the proper ingress protection is gone, so is the microSD card slot and we are getting a bit tired of the overused 8MP ultrawide sensor. Not enough to be a deal-breaker, though. In...

Xiaomi 12 Lite Review: A Mid-Tier Workhorse

 

The Xiaomi 12 Lite has a few bullet points on its spec sheet that suggest there's more to it than meets the eye, but how does it hold up during everyday use?

Solid hardware performance ; Excellent battery life and charging ; Good camera output ; Clean, minimalist design

No standout feature ; Fixed refresh rates at 60Hz or 120Hz ; Only two major Android updates ; No IP rating or wireless charging

Xiaomi 12 Lite review: iPhone who? Check out this value…

 

For its price of $449 (or even cheaper if you wish to go with 6GB of RAM instead of 8), the Xiaomi 12 Lite is undoubtedly among the most "bang for the buck" phones we can expect to be getting in 2022.

Big, AMOLED, high-refresh rate display ; Pretty, light and modern flat-edge design ; Fast in-screen fingerprint scanner ; Fast 67W charging (and the charger is included) ; Included case and screen protector

No wireless charging ; Display scratched easily

Xiaomi 12 Lite Review: A great Samsung Galaxy S21 FE alternative

 

Without much fanfare, the Xiaomi 12 Lite is arriving as the more affordable complement to the flagship Xiaomi 12 Pro. It's hard to keep track with how many phones Xiaomi has right now, but think Better than a flagship? The Xiaomi 12 Lite delivers...

Premium look and feel ; IP53 rating ; Quick charging ; Terrific battery life ; Excellent display ; Great camera for the price

Can feel a little slow compared to flagships ; No wireless charging ; Point-and-shoot pictures can be a little overprocessed

The Xiaomi 12 Lite delivers premium value and more durability at a lower price, but not without a small hit to performance.

Xiaomi 12 Lite review: Too 'lite' or just right?

 

Fancy styling, selfie lights and fast charging meet pared-back power in Xiaomi's latest diet flagship

Good-looking design ; Fast-charging battery ; Respectable performance ; Great screen for movies ; Excellent daytime camera

No wireless charging ; Camera lacks OIS or telephoto lens ; Poor macro camera ; Battery life could be better

Xiaomi's gunning for the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G with its 12 Lite. This slim phone successfully marries classical styling with fun colour options, a cracking screen and some fancy features like an under-display fingerprint scanner. While its battery life...

Xiaomi 12 Lite review

 

Xiaomi delivers a great mid-ranger that's light on the pocket and the hands

Lightweight construction ; Impressive cameras ; Great performance ; Long battery life and quick recharging

Palm rejection could be better ; MIUI is a mixed bag

Xiaomi has come up trumps with the 12 Lite. A comfortable lightweight design is accompanied by great performance, battery life and surprisingly good cameras. It’s a great all-rounder and makes you wonder why you’d need to spend more on a phone?

Xiaomi 12 Lite review: Apple-esque, but affordable

 

iPhone-esque looks and a capable camera make for a desirable mid-ranger

Slick styling and pleasing colour options ; Beautiful OLED display ; Capable main camera

Secondary cameras pretty weak ; Overall performance merely OK at this price ; Battery on the small side

It feels oddly disconnected from the rest of the Xiaomi 12 line-up, but that doesn’t stop the 12 Lite from being a competent mid-ranger. We like the design a lot, even if it gives major Apple vibes – but the hardware puts amongst tough competition at...

Xiaomi 12 Lite Review Philippines: Gone Premium

 

After using it for a few weeks for this review, we determine of the Xiaomi 12 Lite is a strong mid-range offering in the Philippines.

Excellent camera performance ; Well-optimized software ; One of the best displays in the mid-range segment

A processor upgrade could be nice ; Only LPDDR4X RAM and UFS 2.2 storage ; More expensive than its predecessor
