Xiaomi Mi 9 Review

Score: 83.2 / 100

Xiaomi Mi 9 is a top-level device launched some years ago, in 2019, which counts with a really big 6.4" display, a high speed Octa-Core CPU running at 2840 MHz, a 48 mega-pixels back camera and a 20 MP front-facing camera.

This cellphone is for sale in 3 different color options, black, blue and purple. This cellphone is much lighter than what one would expect from a phone this size. Being just 0.3 inches thick,the Xiaomi Mi 9 is slim and good-looking. This phone is just 6.2 inches long, but it still manages to hold a 6.4" display. Regarding its body materials, this phone is created with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Metal .

This phone includes a incredible 6.4 inches screen with a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels in the screen.

This phone is equipped with an extremely powerful 2840 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 system chip with a huge 6 GB of RAM. A great feature of this device is its huge 128 GB internal storage memory and although it doesn't include a slot for external memory cards, it it is more than enough to install tons of applications, games, photos and videos without even thinking about how much storage is left.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 has two cameras, a 48 megapixels back camera and a 20 megapixels front camera. this cellphone's back camera lens has an aperture of F1.8 so it can shoot clear pictures even in low light situations. The Xiaomi Mi 9 can also shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 60 fps, and slow motion videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 960 frames per second (32 times slower ). To complete the camera, it also features auto-focus.

This device features a 3300 mAh huge non-removable battery, enough to provide the Xiaomi Mi 9 with an impressive battery life. An issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't change it when it begins to lose capacity, whereas with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new device before it happens.

This cellphone provides WiFi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) ultra fast connection type and fast 3G data connection, over HSPA and HSUPA technologies. The Xiaomi Mi 9 has dual sim cards so it's able to work with two different phone lines and even different carriers in the same phone.

This phone also includes a wide range of great characteristics like Fingerprint Scanner, Wireless charging, Near Field Communication (NFC), Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Navigation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone is probably the correct choice for you it doesn't matter whether you you love taking photos, will use it as a social cellphone, want a phone to play lots of games or need a cellphone for work. Xiaomi packs this cellphone with USB Type-C cable, Type-c to 3.5 mm adapter, Documentation , Case, SIM removal tool and 18W Charger.
