Xiaomi Mi 9 Review

 

The 3-Minute Xiaomi MI 9 Review

Xiaomi’s Flagship Device

By Graeme Messina | May 20, 2019

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 4/5 ● Value: 4/5 ● Sound Quality 3/5

The Best:

Xiaomi’s deep system optimizations guarantee that the phone will maintain ideal status for a year and half of use, and Game Turbo enables even more speed for extraordinary gaming experiences. The super-fast Snapdragon 855 runs a lot faster and smoother than the Kirin 970 from Huawei. The deep system optimization allows for prolonged use with faster performance for game optimization. The highest resolution and light sensitivity on the market to date. Fitted with a 6.39" Samsung AMOLED Dot drop Full Screen Display giving you 90.7% screen-to-body ratio, 3.6mm narrow chin and center pin hole front camera this device will satisfy all your screen needs.

The Bugs:

The SIM tray does not have a seal around it leaving it susceptible to water damage as we already know the Mi9 does not have an IP rating. The sound is not as good as we would have liked, with it only having a single speaker it gives a very tinny sound. The inability to add extra storage by adding a SD card leaves you having to make do with on board storage.

Is it for you?

The Xiaomi brand is growing in popularity and the era of expensive smartphones only having good cameras and premium features is finally coming to an end. Companies are focusing on producing premium quality mid-range phones that deliver on all fronts while remaining affordable. The Mi9 shows you what is possible from a phone manufacturer. The Mi9 is available in a stunning array of colors, all while giving you high intensity image quality of a 4k device this is something you don’t want to pass up.

The Specs

·         Camera         48MP + 12MP + 16MP

·         Battery           3300 mAh

·         Ram   6 GB

·         157.5 x 74.67 x 7.61mm, 173g

·         Glass back with holographic finishes

What we like

The Xiaomi Mi 9 is the most compelling phone we've seen from Xiaomi so far. Although the design isn't a revolution from the Mi 8, it does feel like it's a lot more advanced. The camera offers more fun with that wide-angle lens, the in-display fingerprint scanner keeps up with the latest trends and the display notch and handling is better. We've also enjoyed it more than the Mi 8 Pro too - the software just seems better on this newer model.

Xiaomi undercuts the big names significantly when it comes to price. What you lose here in refinement and experience from the Samsung Galaxy S10+, you gain in cash. Still it does not mean that the Xiaomi is a lesser phone by any means.

What we don’t like

The ultra-smooth design of this phone makes it somewhat slippery to handle so to counter that I would suggest using a cover to protect your device. With this phone not having an IP rating makes you even more skeptical about water damage.

Should you buy it?

If are looking for a phone with an affordable price tag,Samsung AMOLED display with the latest processor, respectable camera, strong user interface and long-lasting fast charging battery this is the perfect device for you.

  • The Good :
    Versatile Camera Experience, Superb Value for Money, Fantastic Performance, Excellent Screen
  • The Bad :
    Slightly Temperamental Fingerprint Sensor, No IP Certification
Our score:
4 / 5
