Must read

The Redmi Note 9 and Note 9 Pro come with quad-camera frameworks, almost bezel-less displays and, in contrast to Huawei, access to Google applications and the Google Play Store. They even have 3.5mm headphone jacks.
As promised, the Redmi Note 9 and Note 9 Pro convey long-enduring power, solid performance, and awesome camera performance for their value category. Overall, on the off chance that you need a huge, well-performing Android phone that does not cost a ton of cash, do look at these.
Design and Display
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 and Note 9 Pro both look excellent and modern. The Note 9 sports a 6.5-inch LCD display with a little punch-hole for the selfie camera at the display’s top left hand side. The bezels are moderately slender; the jawline is also very unnoticeable. In spite of being LCD and not AMOLED, the display offers brilliant colours and a good review understanding. The rear of the Redmi Note 9 is caused of plastic and it does to feel slightly less premium. However, the colour of our unit, Polar White, compensates for the plastic feel with a fashionable touch, transitioning from white to light blue to light pink towards the bottom.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro feels and looks premium from all sides. Its glossy glass back does pull in fingerprints, yet it looks gorgeous and feels like you’re holding a lead. The selfie camera is arranged in a minuscule focused punch hole. The Redmi Note 9 Pro’s LCD display is 6.7 inches diagonally; however, the phone itself is similarly as wide as the Note 9, making it about as comfortable for one-hand use. Weight distribution is extraordinary on the Note 9 Pro, causing it to feel solid in the hand.
The principle cameras on both the Redmi Note 9 and the Redmi Note 9 Pro convey good photos with moderately exact colours for this value extend. The Note 9’s colours will in general be more on the hotter side, slightly unrealistic. We also noticed that the Note 9 Pro produces better detail in its photos.
Both phones have good ultra-wide shots and the macro shots on both the Redmi Note 9 and the Redmi Note 9 Pro end up being okay too. The Note 9 slightly changes the colours, making them more soaked than they are in reality, while the Note 9 Pro keeps them more realistic. The computerized zoom on both phones is comparative; however, the Note 9 Pro figures out how to convey slightly more subtleties and a keener image overall.
Portrait mode on both phones is satisfactory. The background is pleasantly obscured while the subject is focused. Here once more, the Redmi Note 9 Pro conveys more realistic-looking colours, while the Redmi Note 9 again slightly oversaturated the colours.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro made a superior showing with Night Mode, although the Note 9 didn’t disappoint either. There is noise in the Note 9’s night shots, while the Note 9 Pro figured out how to keep the photos cleaner and smoother looking.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro can shoot video at 4K 30fps, and the footage does look good. The Redmi Note 9 can only shoot 1080p video at 30fps, which doesn’t catch as much detail, however it is as yet satisfactory.
Audio and call quality
The Redmi Note 9 conveys good audio quality from its bottom speaker and it’s loud enough to comfortably watch YouTube videos or tune in to podcasts. However, it’s not as loud as we would have liked and, unfortunately, the smartphone does not utilize the earpiece for stereo sound like numerous other phones, so the audio comes from one side of the screen.
The equivalent applies to the Redmi Note 9 Pro. The bottom speaker on the Note 9 Pro is, shockingly, slightly less powerful than the one on the Note 9, yet the thing that matters is scarcely noticeable. Both phones’ speakers are satisfactory for tuning in to music in your home in case you’re alone, yet not loud enough if it’s noisy around you.
Both phones convey good call quality, both from the earpiece or on speakerphone through the bottom speaker.
Software and Performance
Both the Redmi Note 9 and the Note 9 Pro come with Android 10 and Xiaomi’s custom Android skin, MIUI 11, out of the box. The software runs smoothly on both phones, and we enjoy the touches Xiaomi added to the Android experience to a great extent. MIUI 11 offers an instinctive interface and we like the way the ongoing applications are organized in two columns.
One perspective that could be slightly confusing with MIUI 11 on the Redmi Note 9 and the Note 9 Pro is lock screen notifications. Both phones would sometimes show notifications on the lock screen, and other occasions won’t.
The Redmi Note 9 features a MediaTek Helio G85 processor, which, in spite of being a mid-go processor, is very equipped for running match-ups smoothly and causing the phone to feel smart. The Note 9 and the Note 9 Pro do not come with 90 or 120Hz display revive rates, yet at the same time convey a serious wonderful encounter when browsing social media or gaming.
The Redmi Note 9 Pro features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor, a quick mid-run processor that loads applications rapidly and runs games well, particularly for this value category.
Fingerprint sensors and face unlock
The Redmi Note 9 and the Redmi Note 9 Pro support both face unlock and fingerprint unlock features. The Face Unlock in both smartphones is done by means of a 2D image taken with the selfie camera, so it isn’t the most secure option. However, it works without major unsettling influences in both phones, both in daylight and in low-light situations. The fingerprint sensor of the Note 9 is arranged on the back, while the Note 9 Pro rocks a fingerprint sensor incorporated with the power button. Both are exceptionally viable and brisk, with extraordinary, if not great, exactness and speed.
Battery life
Xiaomi has stayed faithful to its commitment on a long-enduring battery life for the Note 9 and the Note 9 Pro. Both smartphones come with goliath, 5,020mAh battery cells, which intrigued us with more than 14 hours of browsing in our meticulous battery test. With moderate to substantial use, the enormous battery should last you daily – and unquestionably more in case you are a light smartphone client. The Redmi Note 9 Pro scored 10 hours and 56 minutes in our 3D gaming test, which implies that on the off chance that you choose to play the whole day, you should in any case have some battery left at night.
The Redmi Note 9 kept going 7 hours and 34 minutes in our 3D gaming test – considerably less, yet at the same time a very good outcome.
Additionally, both phones support quick charging. The Redmi Note 9 Pro supports up to 30W wired charging speeds, while the Redmi Note 9 ‒ up to 18W.
