My Thoughts on the Xiaomi 12 Lite: Is it worth your money?

Do you remember the last time you bought your first smartphone? Well, I’m sure it was quite some time back. In fact, most people who have used smartphones for a long time might not even be able to recollect exactly when they bought their first device. Times change and so do our choices.  No one wants to compromise on features or performance, but at the same time, we want something that won’t cost us an arm and a leg. And that is where devices like the Xiaomi 12 Lite come in handy. It is affordable, yet packs a great punch with its features and performance. This device offers everything that most people need from their smartphones – from light gaming to taking selfies and sharing them on social media. But is it worth your money? Read on to know more about this new device from Xiaomi…

What’s in the box?

There are a few things that come in the box along with the Xiaomi 12 Lite smartphone. You get a user manual, a standard charger, a Micro-USB cable, and a silicon case that can protect the device in case of a slight drop or accident. While the case will definitely protect the device from minor damages, it is best that you don’t drop the phone with the case on it, or it might get ripped apart. 

The box itself is pretty basic, but what’s inside it is what really matters. Xiaomi 12 Lite looks like any other smartphone, but it is definitely lighter than most smartphones out there. The back of the device is made up of plastic, but it doesn’t feel cheap at all. It has a nice grip to it and feels comfortable in the hand. The front of the device has the customary Xiaomi branding and the back has a single camera at the top, along with a small fingerprint sensor and the Xiaomi Logo.

Build and Design

Xiaomi 12 Lite is pretty slim and weighs just 173 grams, so is easy to carry around in your hands or in your pocket. It is 159.3 x 73.7 x 7.3 mm in thickness, so won’t add too much bulk to your pockets either. The device has a 6.55 -inch HD+ display, which is quite decent given the price of the device.  The display is made up of plastic but is scratch resistant, so you need not worry about your keys or coins scratching it. The device has a speaker at the bottom and a charging port at the top. It comes in three variants – Black, lite green, and lite pink. Xiaomi 12 Lite is not water or dust-resistant, so it is best that you keep it away from water as it may get damaged.

Display and UI

The device has a 6.55-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. Xiaomi 12 Lite is not really for watching videos, but for social media, messaging, and communication.  Xiaomi 12 Lite does have a notch at the top, so you need not worry about the device’s UI getting affected. It comes with the company’s own Android 12, and MIUI 12 software. The device is a bit basic, but you can customize it according to your liking.  It comes with an app drawer, so you won’t see all your apps on the home screen. You can also add widgets on the home screen if you want. The device is also a bit customizable. You can choose from a variety of themes and wallpapers to spruce up the device.

Hardware and Performance

The device has a Snapdragon 778G 5G chipset, which is a bit old but does its job pretty well for normal use. It has 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, along with expandable storage of up to 256 GB. It performs well in normal use, but don’t expect it to run heavy games or apps like a pro. The device has a 5000 mAh battery, which is good enough for an entire day’s use. Xiaomi 12 Lite supports fast charging, so it won’t take too long to get fully charged. Xiaomi 12 Lite has a gyroscope, an accelerometer, a proximity sensor, and an ambient light sensor. It also has support for 4G VoLTE, so you can get a good internet connection on your device.


The device has a 108 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP rear camera and a 32 MP front camera. The rear camera is incredibly great, as it is able to capture decent shots. It has dual LED flash, but it is not really helpful in low light.  The front camera, on the other hand, is pretty decent and can be used for video calls and taking selfies. You can also add filters when taking a selfie or a picture. The device has AI support, but you need to download the app from the Play Store in order to use it. The device is a bit basic, but it gets the job done. The device retails for around Ksh. 53,000, which is pretty decent for a device in this price bracket. The device is a great fit for people who want a smartphone, but don’t wish to spend too much money on it. 


Xiaomi 12 Lite performs well in day-to-day use and is pretty decent when it comes to the camera too. If you are looking for a device that won’t burn a hole in your pocket, then this is the device for you.
