This one has great specifications, it has nice design, quite a compelling quad camera setup and a lot more other features that i wanted to talk about in detail in my full review. So stay tuned design wise. We are looking at the classic Xiaomi device, but there are some changes compared to the redmi note. Series phones here is how it looks like next to the redmi note 80, that i reviewed about a month ago. The fingerprint scanner that i found to be pretty fast and accurate has moved to the side of the phone if you don't, like the placement of it. Just use the face unlock feature that is usually fast and reliable. Also xiaomi did a great job imitating metal. By making a matte plastic frame with slightly chamfered edges. Matte surfaces attract less fingerprints, they are usually less prone to scratches and the redmi note 9. As is a great example. The overall build quality is great, but the phone is quite slippery, so don't leave it on the edge of the couch. I love the fact that the phone is splash proof, even though it does not have any official certification. The redmi note series has always been famous for its superior battery life, but the note 9s takes it to another level, even though the phone is relatively thin. Enlight Xiaomi managed to cram in a massive five thousand and twenty million hours battery inside of it, the real life performance up to 20 hours of screen on time, which is pretty crazy, to say the least.
This SOT time was achieved using the phone, mostly for video and social media. If you used your redmi note 9 as more intensively, you can still expect to get one of the best results. The phone supports. 18 was fast charging. Surprisingly, it just would an even faster 22.5 was fast charger that fully charges the phone in just about one hour and 45 minutes. If you need to top up the battery very quickly, we can charge it from zero to 37. In just 30 minutes. A massive LCD display is very good for its class. I liked the colors good brightness and contrast same as the back plate is covered with the Gorilla Glass protection. There is no always on display feature, but we do have LED notification light if 16 megapixel selfie shooter sits in the sponge hole. The bottom firing speaker is really good for its class and it can also get quite loud. The hardware configuration is one of the most attractive points of this device. A Snapdragon 720 G turns out to be a very capable chipset when it comes to handling even the latest 3d games. For instance, pop G runs spying on HD, graphics and high frame rate without any issues which is really impressive for a budget device. Well, I've noticed just a few skipped frames and other 3d titles, but that's just nitpicking. The overall gaming performance is superb for its class. The day to day performance of the phone has been pretty good too.
We have the meanwhile Evan that is based on Android 10 and if you are familiar with Xiaomi phones, you'll see that pretty much everything has remained the same. We have all the usual features and tweaks to play with and all of the customization options are here: classic Xiaomi lots of freedom for the consumer to customise the phone. If what camera system can produce a regular wide angle, macro and portrait pictures in good lighting, the camera takes nice pictures with quite accurate colors with dynamic range and good level of detail. The 48 megapixels mode can be useful for cropping. If you need that extra resolution, a wide angle, shooter also takes nice looking pictures but as usual to budget phones, there could be a little bit more detail. Dedicated depth sensor allows you to take nice. Looking portraits and part of focus macro lens did surprisingly well. In my test, even though I'm not a big macro photography pan at night, the wide angle camera collapses and it does not support night mode, but the main lens is really impressive. These are one of the best night shots I've, seen on a budget phone. The front facing camera on the redmi note 9, as is really good. I, like the quality of selfies, salty poor trees and even in low light. The camera performs quite well when it comes to video it's, a similar story to the previous budget charm phones. That means that 4k video offers more detail than 1080p at the expense of shakiness further.
It can only record the videos in 1080p if you want to use a wide angle lens and you cannot switch between different lenses. While you are recording the video, my recommendation would be simply use a classic 1080p 30fps mode that produces nice and smooth video with great autofocus a 1080p selfie video looks really nice, even though it could be less shaky. There is also a slow motion up to 960 FPS video more than the pro mode that allows you to adjust quite a few image settings. I do like some changes brought by Xiaomi, for example, there is focus peaking that is really useful if you are focusing manually in the connectivity department. The redmi note 9 is quite solid. We have a dual SIM card and he dedicated micro, SD card slot and USB type c port for charging. Also, we have a headphone, jack and FM radio which works without earphones plugged in, but you need to be in the good FM reception area, otherwise plug in your earphones. An integrated IR blaster allows you to control some of your devices call quality signal, reception and GPS. Have been working great, but there is no NFC on this phone, which might be a deal breaker for some users just Before we jump into conclusions.
