This phone is definitely a buyer considering the battery life and better specifications. For people still stuck on Redmi 7, Redmi 8 this is good upgrade considering the specifications.

Now, let us dive deep into the specifications and what this can offer us. So, lets first talk about the camera and its upgrades.
Redmi Note 9 pro: Upgraded Camera
This phone responds well and pleasing in daylight pics. The color reproduction is accurate with a macro lens.
The camera arrangement of this phone includes a 48 MP Quad rear camera with a combination of 8 MP ultra – wide camera, 5MP macro camera, and a 2MP depth sensor.
The camera performance of this phone is quite pleasing and there are no issues with the shutter and lag as such in the regular mode. This phone has improved night mode in the camera. But when switching to the night mode sometimes
The front camera is 16 MP selfie camera. The ultra-wide camera is still not the noticeable feature but still you can get the wider perspective. You can observe the drop in the quality of the camera. The selfie camera of the phone is not that bad as if you turn off the beauty mode you can still get some natural Colors. The other problem that it has is the drop in the color quality of the pictures in the macro mode which can easily be noticed in the first impressions.
The key features in the camera handset are the portrait mode, slow motion.
All together I would the camera needs a few tweaks and improvements for better user experience.
Redmi Note 9 pro: Battery and performance
There has never been a problem with performance in the Xiaomi phones cause they have improved their processor with advancing years.
This phone has a smooth performance on daily basis because of the Snapdragon 720 G chip. It constitutes a 6 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage. This phone doesn’t show lad or clutter on daily basis.
High graphic intensive games like PUBG MOBILE and Call of duty can be run easily on it. Games like Badland, Odyssey run without any problem in the Smartphone. XIOMI 11 has been optimized well to keep the processor smooth.
The phone handles very well the regular usage work like WhatsApp, Facebook, YouTube and other apps.
This phone supports NAVCC India’s own navigation satellite system. You can download the GPS test app from the Google Play Store app and see which satellites the phone is using to access data. The NAVIC ones from India will show at the bottom of the list. The Redmi Note 9 pro runs on a MIUI 11 on Android 10.
I would suggest you to turn off the notifications from the XIOMI pre-installed apps like the Mi browser and the Mi Video cause the content push is constant which is really annoying. We may end up on missing something important cause these pre-installed app notifications cutter the Notification tray very easily.
Redmi Note 9 pro: Battery
Now talking of the battery capacity of the phone. So, let me tell you my friends that this phone comes with a Whooping 5020 mAh battery.
The phone can last for days on moderate usage. But if you really push the limit through gaming and browsing you can use it for one day without charging. It comes with 18 W fast -charging. The battery is always a strong point in the Redmi phones.
Redmi Note 9 pro: Display and Design
The Redmi Note 9 pro has a bigger screen which is 6.67inch screen and has a high HD resolution which is quite amazing. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass. The bigger screen means more real-estate while watching videos but it gets harder to use while lying down. One thing I will say to the phone makers is pleases stop making heavy phones. We don’t like them as users.
The display quality is impressive and the screen is more to reflective side. In bright sunlight even after pushing the brightness to the maximum could not always help but for sure I could read texts without any hasel .
This phone has a punch- whole display where camera is in the middle top part of the screen. The finger-print sensor is now placed at the top left of the phone like the power button this makes it quite feasible cause you are not required to lift the phone every time you wish to unlock it
The Aura design of the phone is my favorite and has a slightly different look. The aura blue color we have is a mix of dark green and blue green. It is quite different from the jade green of the Redmi note 8.
The Xiaomi has retained the splash proof P2i coating to protect the phone against the occasional spills making it more durable.
At the back of the phone camera module is neatly arranged. But the camera module juts out prominently which doesn’t look appealing.
