The remaining three cameras are the 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is a 13-megapixel front camera for selfie.
Overall, according to all the camera specifications, this phone is good in camera performance but how much power is there in its camera or how much will its picture quality be, it will be known only by using the phone.
In this, we get a 5000MAh battery which will run for at least 2 days with normal use. With this, we are getting the option of reverse charging in it, which can charge any other mobile from this mobile as well. We have 9 watts support in reverse charging, the rest of us get an Inbox 22.5 W charger and this phone has a USB TYPE-C connector port.
Build Quality: –
In the backside, we get a poly carbonate body which is fine according to the build. But in the front, we have been given Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection that is very good.
Along with this, p2i nano-coating technology has been used in this phone so that there is no way to get water in it but it is not waterproof, it is splash-proof.
Gaming and performance: –
Talking about performance, in this we get MIUI 11 which is already well optimized, we will not have any problem in multitasking as it has a MediaTek Helio G85 chipset 2.00 GHz Octacore processor.
GPU for gaming: Arm Mali-G52 GPU is installed so that we will be able to play all high-end games on the medium setting. PUBG Mobile’s performance will be smooth but LAG will be a problem in games like fortinite.
Price in India: –
In India, we are getting the price of all three variants of Redmi Note 9 in this way. Redmi Note 9 India price for variant with 4GB + 64GB storage is available for ₹ 11999. The variant with 4GB + 128GB storage is at Rs 13499 and the top-of-the-line variant with 6GB + 128GB storage is Rs 14999.
Buy it or not: –
If we talk about performance and camera, then its price is right, although its 6GB variant is slightly higher price still it is ok.
But in this phone,those chinese apps are also installed which have been banned by the government, such as Clean Master , Mi Community and Security. Accordingly, unless these apps are removed from this phone or there is no option to remove them, then we should not buy it from the security point of view.
You can go for Poco M2 Pro which comes with similar specifications but yes that also have same apps come pre installed.
