Finally, Xiaomi has decided to design for its Note series of mobiles. This mobile phone is definitely going to be and head Turner when you pull the mobile out of the pocket. It has an almost 1mm protruding camera module on the rear of the mobile. I have bought aqua-green color which has these light gradient shade. The colors are up to your personal preferences.
The phone has a matte finish at the back so it is definitely not a fingerprint magnet. It also doesn’t feel very heavy and is very easy to hold firmly.
🎯DESIGN and DISPLAY:
This 6.43-inch display with the Full HD Plus resolution is really good along with a punch-hole selfie camera that offers a seamless user experience.
The brightness can go up 1100 nits peak so it is definitely not a difficult thing to use it under sunlight. Xiaomi provided this model with the Widevine L1 DRM certification support for this mobile. So, playing HD videos on an ott platform won’t be an issue.
Z-axis haptic motor used in this mobile throws more realistic vibrations while playing games. I tried it extensively with a couple of games, the experience was really satisfying. Kudos to Xiaomi for throwing in all the sensors on this mobile especially for not giving up on the remote control sensor.
This mobile comes with a lot of preloaded apps like Facebook, LinkedIn, MI remote, MI credit, MI Store, MI pay, share m, etc. Out of these, you can uninstall a couple of apps and you have to live with the remaining apps for the rest of the life.
The fingerprint sensor is very sensitive and highly responsive that even if you touch the sensor unintentionally you will end up unlocking the phone. It is that fast. Games like Asphalt 9 and Call of Duty worked excellently without any lag or freezing. This mobile would definitely outscore any mobile under this budget easily.
It took 25 to 35 minutes to charge the mobile from 0 to 75% using the 33 Watts charger which came along with the mobile.
It comes with the 48-megapixel F/1.79 main camera with Sony Sensor and an 8mp ultrawide camera and the remaining two are the macro and the depth sensor.
The main camera will let you shoot 4K 30fps video and 960fps 720 p video. When provided with good lighting conditions the main camera gives you a decent output and the Portrait mode also did a good job by blurring out the background gently.
The low light images were average and it was decent enough for mobile phones with a budget of 15k.
Coming to the selfie camera The Portrait mode worked excellently and the pictures were on a little warm tone than a natural skin tone. If you don’t like the warm tone on your selfie pictures then you can fix it through editing apps from Play Store.
This mobile offers Rock-solid performance for everyday tasks along with very good battery life. This mobile phone comes with MIUI 12.5 so you don’t have to worry about future updates for at least the next two years. With AMOLED display and the stereo speakers along with IP53 rating, this has to be the most competent mobile phone under 15000 and a good value for money.
