What are the best Xiaomi smartphones in 2022?

Born eleven years ago, Xiaomi has come a long way since its beginnings as a small unknown manufacturer very inspired by Apple. The brand has managed to build a separate identity and has since diversified considerably, with smartphones as the focal point of its catalog.

You can now find Xiaomi products everywhere, from scooters around the corner to the smart bulb in the ceiling light.

The brand’s DNA has not changed, however, a Xiaomi smartphone focuses above all on finding the right value for money, with special attention paid to the software. The MIUI interface is in its thirteenth version and offers one of the strongest biases in the Android universe. It won’t please everyone, but the care that goes into it is undeniable.

With 12 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer affirms its status as a market juggernaut with a design worthy of its prestige.

The Xiaomi 12 Pro incorporates a 6.73-inch OLED screen offering a definition in WQHD + or 3200×1440. The refresh is able to climb up to 120 Hz but above all to adapt to your consumption. In terms of performance, the interface offers superb brightness. It’s a great screen.

The internal power is provided by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip and 12 GB of RAM memory. Qualcomm’s latest processor provides good performance in game even if some settings are to be taken into account. The general experience is completed by MIUI 13 which is of good quality even if the software is not impeccable.

The smartphone has a 4600 mAh battery and the capacity to last a full day. Above all, it has a 120 W fast charge, capable of putting it to 100% in half an hour. On the rear side, there are three 50-megapixel sensors that offer good shots.

In short, Xiaomi’s new flagship ticks all the boxes to succeed an already excellent Mi 11


After a Mi 11 that broke the record, Xiaomi is trying to decline its winning recipe by making it more accessible with this Mi 11i. First major change: the Mi 11i is content with a simple, flat screen. If the latter remains of very good quality (it is even brighter), it goes to a Full HD + definition. Fortunately, OLED and adaptive 120 Hz remain on the menu.

Under the hood, however, things do not change since we find the Snapdragon 888 , still as muscular. Whether in game or in the system, we are faced with a model of fluidity. If the screen consumes a little less, the autonomy does not increase on the other hand, Xiaomi having slightly reduced the capacity of the battery. So we always have a good day. The fast charge, on the other hand, goes from 55 to 30 W, which results in a full tank in 45 min. Another victim of the savings plan: wireless charging.

The photo module is unchanged and therefore generally very effective. We particularly appreciate that Xiaomi does not try to overly saturate the shots.

While it’s generally a very good phone, the Mi 11i suffers from awkward positioning. It is indeed hardly less expensive than its big brother and if the modifications remain marginal, they are worth in our opinion the few tens of additional euros. Worse, at the time of writing both smartphones are available at the same price.


The latest addition to the very large Xiaomi family, the 11T Pro arrives with a simple promise: high-end performance at a contained price. The design of the device could not be more classic and the machine is rather comfortable to use. However, it will be criticized for a photo module which makes it particularly wobbly when laid flat.

The screen is of quality since we are in the presence of an OLED FHD + panel at 120 Hz adaptive. We noted a good luminosity which makes the screen easily readable even in direct sunlight. Surprisingly, however, the fingerprint sensor is not under the screen, but installed under a button on the edge. A bit of a shame considering its price.

The processor is the now classic Snapdragon 888, which, coupled with 8 GB of RAM, ensures solid performance in all situations. But it is especially on the battery side that the 11T Pro stands out. If its autonomy of a good day is very classic, it benefits from a ridiculously fast 120 W charger. It fills up in just 15 minutes!

For the photo the results are mixed. If the main sensor is very correct, the ultra wide-angle is struggling, with a clear lack of brightness and contrast. Above all, low-light performance is poor. However, we must salute the quality of the macro mode.
