Equipped with the latest MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, the Redmi 9 performs well. Redmi 9 has two variants with the same 4 GB RAM. The users can choose either of the variants with storage of 64 GB and 128 GB for Rs. 8,999 and Rs. 9,999 respectively. Redmi 9 is a smartphone that offers some useful features at a pocket-friendly price. It has Bluetooth 5, Wi-Fi n, and FM radio.
A well-performing in-built battery of 5,000 mAh that lasts for long (More than a day) with only a single charge up to 100% gives a satisfactory experience. As per the HD video loop survey, the battery of the Redmi 9 lasts for about 19 hours, which is a commendable performance. The low-resolution Redmi 9 screen and processor use a lesser battery.
However, charging up to 100 per cent takes a longer time, and it takes more than an hour to charge it up to half of the battery, which is a long time as nowadays, the users want a quick and fast charging facility.
With 2 MP depth sensor lenses, a 13 MP primary rear, and a 5 MP selfie camera, Redmi 9 is the phone worth buying. It mainly features a special Pro shooting mode and the basic modes for clicking pictures that improve the picture quality. These different modes include Close-ups, HDR, Exposure, Landscape, Daylight, and many other attractive modes to make the picture-quality decent. Also, the portrait mode works great, but in dim light, the Redmi 9 camera has to struggle a bit. The camera is average for taking pictures in the daylight, but details are not captured well during a dim light. The phone lacks a night mode. And, the same happens with video quality.

Only up to 1080p footage can be captured, with not-so-good focus hunting. The texture gets coarse while zooming in. However, the close-up pictures get better, but not so great. Auto-focus speed is average, and the portrait mode is decent. The selfies taken on this phone are good enough during the daylight, but it struggles a lot to provide a clear selfie during the dim light.
The Redmi 9 smartphone is a light-weight of 194g with 9mm thickness, making the phone light and slim. Redmi 9 Screen has a size of 6.53 inches and pixel resolutions of 720 x 1600. The colours and the angels given in this phone are impressive; however, the brightness could be a little higher. Thus, Redmi 9 design enables users to use the phone with a single hand. But it needs a bit of hand-shuffling to utilise the volume buttons as they are above the power button. The speakers, the micro USB port, and a headphone jack are present on the bottom. There is also a triple-slot SIM tray on the device. Made of top-quality plastic, Redmi 9 looks so sturdy.
Following the recent trends, the square-shaped back camera is there. The plastic-made body has a texture on the back, preventing fingerprints on the phone, and also makes the smartphone handy and grippy. A small circular indent is there for the fingerprint sensor, which adds extra security to the phone. The phone also consists of a face recognition sensor.
