Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S Review

Score: 79 / 100

Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S is a brilliantly designed Android phone released some years ago, which counts with an exceptional Octa-Core processor ticking at 2.3 gigahertz, a big size 6.7-inches display, a 48 megapixels back facing camera and a 16 MP front camera.

Xiaomi equipped this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SM7125 system chip, holding a very powerful 2.3 gigahertz Octa-Core processing unit and a big 4 GB RAM. A great feature of this cellphone is its huge 64 GB internal storage memory and an external memory slot, enough to store lots of apps, games, photos and videos without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S just has 6.53" long, but it's able to fit a a 6.7" screen. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S is slim and comfortable, being just 0.35" thick. This cellphone feels a bit heavy for a phone this size, weighting 7.37 ounces. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S is available in 3 different colors, aurora blue, glacier white and interstellar grey. Regarding its design materials, this phone is mainly made with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) .

Xiaomi equipped this cellphone with a great 6.7" screen, and a 1080 x 2400 resolution, providing this device with a delightful image quality.

This device features two cameras, a 48 megapixels back-facing camera and a 16 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Its back-facing camera has a F1.8 aperture so it can take impressive photographs even in poor lighting conditions. It can also capture videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 960 fps.

This cellphone comes with an incredible 5020 mAh Li - Polymer non-removable battery that can keep this device running for several hours without having to charge it. An issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins losing capacity, although having 5020 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before that becomes a real problem.

This phone includes wi-fi capability (and it can share it with other devices acting as a router), 4G LTE-A , a really fast internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (a bit slower 4G type) and fast 3G connectivity, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone uses 2 Nano SIM cards so it can to use 2 different phone numbers.

This device also features many great characteristics such as Fingerprint ID, Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This device costs around 249 dollars, similar to other same level phones. This cellphone is probably a good choice for you no matter whether you want it mostly for social networks, need a phone to play games, need a device for work or are a photography fan. This cellphone is packed with Simple protective cover, USB Type-C cable, 22.5W Wire charger, User guide, SIM eject tool and Warranty card .
