Built and design
The premium feel of this particular smartphone Redmi note 9 arises from its glass build but still the plastic frame deducts a bit of chase to love design. It’s a heavy device with the screen size of 6.6 inches with the left side camera at the upper corner of the screen. The camera bump this time is in square shape with the fingerprint sensor below the camera section. Looking into the down side it has 3.5mm of audio jack with the type c port and at the upper side it has IR blaster which is really a cool stuff and at the right side it has power button and volume rocker which are slightly at the top. The phone claims themselves to be splash resistant due to strong internals so we can expect the fingerprint sensor even to open with the sweaty hand.
Towards the battery section it shows an outstanding result on paper showing the capacity of 5020 MAH. This giant battery pack is easily supposed to last for more than the day while light usage and even in heavy usage it can give you a backup of a day. If you are a person who expect for the quick charging, then this phone may disappoint you as it comes with the fast charging of only 18W which only charges about 31% in about o to 30 minutes.
If you know MIUI well then you can recall how irritating are its ads but wait this time it’s not the case with this device. Xiaomi with the MIUI 11 based on android 10 has promised to bring out lesser ads in this device. Else you know how simple and handy is the Xiaomi software is.

Following the previous trend this device also has a quad camera setup where the main camera is of 48 mega pixels along with the wide angle lens of 8 mega pixels. The depth sensor in Redmi note 9 is of 2 mega pixels with 2 mega pixels of macro sensor. Though macro lens and depth sensor are not used that often but its existence makes a bit of difference. When it comes to selfie the front facing camera is of 13 mega pixels which can give you a proper selfie as per your expectation at this price range.
At the period of time when the smartphones are upgrading themselves with the higher refresh rate this smartphone lacks this feature. Even if you look at its close competitor REALME 6, it offers the refresh rate of 90 hertz while the Redmi note 9 is limited at 60 hertz. But still this phone can be preferable towards budget spectrum. If the battery is the major feature you are seeking for that this smartphone would be great for you. Beside these feature rich MIUI 11 is something you have always admired a lot. You are also getting IR blaster in this device which is a sort of impossible stuff to offer by other companies. The premium design and the amazing shots make it more value for money. As per our recommendation, of course you should go for this highly feature packed phone as it is only price for RS. 22,999 for the 4 GB of ram and 128 GB of storage.
