With a price starting at 230 Euros ($279), the Redmi Note 9T is currently one of the cheapest 5G smartphones on the market. Xiaomi's 5G smartphone scores points with good build quality; it has a stable chassis, relatively thin display bezels, and fits well in the hand thanks to its rounded sides. The 13 MP selfie camera also deserves praise since it takes decent pictures in good lighting conditions.

Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The Redmi Note 9T is part of Xiaomi's Redmi line of affordable phones. It competes more with other handsets from the brand, like the Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite and Poco X3 NFC. The Redmi phone's advantage over the former is its 5G connectivity and slightly lower price, and over the latter a battery that's a sliver bigger… and not much else. If you need a great camera phone at this price point, there are better devices.

  • Plastic back
  • Not as good as Mi 10T Lite
