We checked out the device ourselves. Here's what we think:

First thing's first, the 32MP selfie camera is just... *chef's kiss*

Designed with a 32MP front camera supported by autofocus capabilities, this featherlight selfie camera is sure to enhance your selfie game with sharper focus and refined colours.

The selfie portrait mode is also accompanied by an auto HDR mode that, like the main camera, can stimulate true-to-life bokeh effects that are powered by Xiaomi's algorithm.

If that isn't enough, the front camera is additionally complemented by Xiaomi Selfie Glow, which are two soft LEDs that provides extra lighting. This allows you to capture your beauty in exceptional detail, no matter the scenario.

We were also captivated by the studio-quality triple main camera that can capture the world in three distinct ways

The Xiaomi 12 Lite comes with a 108MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP macro lens. The inclusion of three variants of cameras makes the phone versatile in the photography front, and our first-look at this device confirms this.

Like the front 32MP front camera, the Xiaomi 12 Lite's 108MP main camera is able to produce clear and smooth bokeh effects and high-definition images from any angle in high quality and better clarity.

The phone software also comes with imaging features, filters, and Magic Cutout — a professional editor that automatically identifies and outlines people, cats, and dogs for image editing. You can utilise these features to enrich and elevate your social media posts.

When it comes to performance, the Xiaomi 12 Lite offers flagship speed with no interruptions

Packed with the all-powerful Snapdragon 778G chipset, the Xiaomi 12 Lite delivers near flagship-level performance at a mid-range price. It also helps that it's equipped with a multi-tier cooling system, which regulates heat dissipation when operating the device to ensure a smooth all-around experience.

The 4,300mAh battery that comes together with the Xiaomi 12 Lite is more than enough to last you through the whole day. And even if that isn't the case, the 67W turbo charging can power the device up to 50% in just 13 minutes. 

Furthermore, you can swipe through applications and photos on your smartphone seamlessly with a screen refresh rate of up to 120Hz.

The device is slim, sleek, and aesthetic — all the ingredients needed for a no-frills smartphone

While using the Xiaomi 12 Lite, one of the first things you'll notice is the AMOLED screen. Its spacious and wide 6.55' AMOLED display features both HDR10+ and Dolby Vision for a delightful viewing experience of your favourite TV shows and movies.

It has a TrueColour display capable of showcasing over 68 billion colours, which are rich and accurate, in any photo or visual material that you lay eyes on.

The novel smartphone also presents a back cover that's fitted with a matte colour gradient, elegantly complemented by three metal-ringed rear cameras that exude a heightened sense of class.

Since we spend almost 100% of our time with our smartphones, it should be an extension of ourselves. This means, it's essential that you get one that feels the most 'you' in personality and in colour.
