Reviewer score 44% (normalized by Neofiliac)
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found:
The MediaTek Helio G80 is made using the 12-nm manufacturing process and offers eight CPU cores in two clusters. The Mali-G52 is a Bifrost-based GPU from ARM. It supports such APIs as OpenGL ES 3.2 and Vulkan 1.0. The surface temperatures of the Redmi 9 reach 45 °C (113 °F) under continuous load. However, the temperatures should be much more reasonable in day-to-day use.
Pros
  • High-quality case
  • Good battery life
  • Good cameras
  • Fast charging
Cons
  • Mediocre camera performance
  • Slow eMMC internal memory

Reviewers from techadvisor have found:
In daylight the camera works well as a point and shoot, with particular credit given to the AI mode. We found Redmi 9 inconsistent, with saturated yellows, reds and purples, but elsewhere it could produce rather bleak images with flat colours. For the money we were mostly impressed by the level of detail in photos, although the ultra-wide lens has a fixed focus.
Pros
  • Great value for money
  • Decent battery life
  • Good cameras
Cons
  • No Always-on Display
  • No NFC
