The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Mi 9T

The Xiaomi Mi 9T is an older model, having been launched at the end of 2019.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good; since it is very affordable, it is certainly a good choice.

Main results

The Xiaomi Mi 9T arrived on the market with Android 9, so there are no problems for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices.
This mobile phone is the new version of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite, already tested. In comparison, the screen size is larger, the screen resolution is higher, the camera resolution is higher, the processor is faster.
The 6.4″ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels is much more pleasant than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the weak points of Xiaomi Mi 9T is the low battery life: in our usage scenario, its 4000 mAh allow it to reach just 22 hours, which is below average.
The 107 GB of internal memory measured (128 GB declared) are many, certainly enough to store our data.
It suffered some minor damages in the drop test, but passed it well and can therefore be considered quite robust.
Models in this price range are usually powerful, and this phone is among the best: therefore, it can be used without problems even for tasks that require high performance, such as some video games.
Among the most interesting functions are: being dual SIM (two SIM, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.


Xiaomi Mi 9T has three rear cameras (the main one is 48 Mp) which allow you to get good quality photos, except in situations with little light where they only reach sufficiency.
This mobile phone has a 20 MP front camera, which allows you to take pictures of just enough quality, so selfies are not exciting.
