The ultimate 2021 Review of Xiaomi Redmi Note 9

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 is a fairly new model, having been launched in the middle of 2020.
The overall quality of this smartphone is good; since it is very affordable, it is certainly a good choice.

Main results

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 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 Note 9 is the good battery life: in our usage scenario, its 5020 mAh allow it to reach 37 hours, which is above average.
The 49.6 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.
Like most models in this price range, this phone is very powerful, so 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 SIMs, two numbers, can work simultaneously) and the presence of the fingerprint reader.
This model is compatible with 4G connection.
