Xiaomi Mi 8 SE is a nice-to-use affordable smartphone with a notch. The company had its 8th anniversary, which it used to show Mi 8, MI 8 Explorer Edition, and as well as Mi 8 se. However, due to the fact that Xiaomi Mi 8 SE turned out to be wildly cheap and wildly powerful with excellent cameras, people might like it a lot , but at the same with comparison with competitors both from Xiaomi, and from third-party companies. It is a combination of low price and advanced iron can generally kill the interest of many to the flagships Mi 8 and Mi 8 EE, because they even work out every penny, yet not everyone needs the flagship chips and cameras that are photographed in the daytime almost the same as Mi 8 SE. If Xiaomi Mi 8 can be called "killer flagship" than previously boasted OnePlus, the Xiaomi mi 8 SE is exactly "killer Sub-flagship".
It is worth saying that the device turned out more angular and with a smaller size copy Xiaomi Mi 8. It also has a Notch and wide frame at the bottom of the front panel, a fingerprint scanner and a vertical double camera. The body of the device is still the same ceramic with metal frame of aluminum 7000 series, the truth to the colors of the case added another: In addition to the blue, black and gold color is red, and the white version is absent. This is how the device looks.
It is very surprising that the simplified flagship, which can be even sub-flagship, got the same top screen as the standard Mi 8. The only difference lies only in the diagonal. That is, users will be available all the advantages of Samsung-made AMOLED-matrix, namely: Brightness to 600 nit, contrast 60000:1, technology Always On Display and HDR. In addition Xiaomi Mi 8 SE offers an extended color palette of DCI-P3, like that of the same iPhone X. For all this is a very big thanks to Xiaomi, since, for example, there are so many flagships from different companies have IPS panel and so many are not happy with this, they make use of OLED panels.Naturally, there are many opponents and supporters of each of the types of matrices, but at the expense of AMOLED or the same OLED has the ability to hide notchi, but on IPS it will still be visible. However, it is worth remembering that the framework in the case of artificial concealment of notchi will be uneven and the upper is more. Keep in mind that we do not guarantee that details we are giving here are totally accurate but we love to avoid mistakes.
In terms of performance Xiaomi phones generally pleased, as Mi 8 SE received a powerful, literally from the shop Octa-Core chip. It is based on eight cores Kryo 360, which are divided into clusters of 4 pieces. The upper is accelerated to a frequency of 2.2 GHz, and the lower to 1.7 GHz. The graphics performance is met by a fresh Adreno 616 with a frequency of up to 500 MHz. In addition, the chip is built on a fresh and honed to perfection technological process in 10 nm, which offers low heating and small energy consumption. The only thing that didn't really like it is the lack of different memory configurations. The operational one can still choose either 4GB or 6 GB, but the constant is only 64 GB, and even not much fast-EMMC 5.1. The problem is that it can be expanded and it is impossible, because of what some users will be cramped and have to go to all sorts of tricks. Anyway, and in Antutu all this allows you to recruit almost 185-190 thousand points, which is a lot. It's probably even silly to say that all the toys and the system fly-it's so clear.
Cameras in the device are, so to say, powerful. The manufacturer decided to leave intact one of the main photo-module (well almost), as well as the front camera. What do we have? And in accessibility There are: the main camera on 12 MP Sony IMX363 with aperture f/1.9, optical stabilization in pair with electronic on 4 axes, big pixels in 1.4 microns and technology phase in pair with Dual Pixel autofocus. The additional basic module offers already Samsung matrix on 5 MP with Aperture lens f/2.0, pixel size 1.12 microns and lack of stabilization, and other buns. That is, Xiaomi Mi 8 SE can shoot high-quality photos and videos, plus good portraits, but at the same time inaccessible is a double optical approximation without loss of quality. Frankly, the loss is not so big, as on Mi 8 additional photo-module on 12 MP not enough that has size of pixels 1 micron, so also dark aperture f/2.4. The same increase without loss of quality there is possible only at excellent illumination, more precisely in the afternoon at presence of a sun or a small cloudiness.
The front camera at Mi 8 Chic is a 20 MP Sony IMX376 sensor with a pixel size of up to 2 microns. With such parameters is unlikely to make a bad selfie! In addition, the front camera is also a face recognition, but it is a purely marketing chip. The capacity of the battery this time Xiaomi does not indulge, although especially complaining about 3120 mah is not worth it. Such a small capacity partly compensates for the energy-efficient processor, AMOLED-matrix, as well as support fast charging quick (power supply for 18 Watts will have to buy separately).
