The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Redmi 9 64GB

The Xiaomi Redmi 9 64GB is a new model, having been launched in mid-2020.
The overall quality of this smartphone is on average; as it is very affordable, it can be a good choice just to save a little.

Main test results

The Xiaomi Redmi 9 64GB arrived on the market with Android 10, so there are no problems for safety and compatibility with apps and other devices.
The 6.5″ screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels looks better than that of other models and is also very quick to react to commands.
One of the strengths of Xiaomi Redmi 9 64GB is its good battery life: in our usage scenario, its 5020 mAh allow it to reach 39 hours, which is above average.
The 47.6 GB of actual available internal memory (64 GB declared) may be enough to store our data, if not, we can use an SD memory card to expand the phone memory.
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 not very powerful: this phone is an exception, so you can also use it 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.
