The redmi note 9s is a budget smartphone with a flagship look. It has glass at the rear and it looks amazing when light hits it. The glass is conning gorilla. Glass. 5, which helps to keep scratches away, but it attracts fingerprints like no man’s business with the glass red. This is not the most durable smartphone. Luckily, replacing the glass is not expensive. The redmi note 9s has a plastic frame and the display is protected with corning gorilla glass, 5 as well. Over the months i have used this device, the smartphone held up really well and that’s, because i used the tpu case that came in the box. So for the build quality it costs 10 out of 10, but for durability. Maybe i’ll give it a 7 of a 10 because of the glass rare. What about the weight? Well, it isn’t the most comfortable smartphone to hold at 210 grams on the right side of this device. You will find the volume on the power buttons. The power button doubles as the fingerprint scanner and unlocking this smartphone. It is fast it isn’t the fastest. I have used that will go to the infinix zero eight and the techno camera 16 premiere, but the redmi note 9s is still fast. Nonetheless, the face unlock feature is fast as well, and it works in poor lighting conditions. Moving to the bottom of this smartphone, it comes with a single speaker, a mic, a usb type c port and a 3.
5 mm audio jack. The single speaker sounds okay, putting it next to a dual stereo speaker smartphone, like the poco x3 nfc. It holds its ground. The audio isn’t as loud as the others, but it sounds okay, now listening to the audio using the 3.5 mm audio jack, sounds loud and rich for the display. The redmi note 9s comes with a 6.67 inch ips lcd display with a resolution of 1080 by 2400 pixels, and it has a maximum brightness of 400 nits, which makes the display visible on the direct sunlight it’s a 60 hertz panel, which is in the rave at The moment it’s clash sharp, but unfortunately, scrolling is not as smooth as i would like it to be in the settings. You can change the display from light to dark mode. I prefer light mode as the dark mode seems to be buggy. You can also change the color scheme and temperature for the wedders out there. You can change the notch style now. Viewing content on this display is enjoyable. The notch doesn’t get in your way, but with the arrival of the redmi note 10 pro and the redmi note 10 with amoled displays. This display might look outdated because of the ips lcd panel that is using. But apart from that it’s a very good display, and over the month, i’ve owned this device. I really enjoyed watching content on it for the cameras i don’t know if you can see it, but around the camera cut out there’s a bit of screen bleeding it isn’t a deal breaker.
It won’t, distract you but it’s there. The front camera comes with a 16 megapixel f 2.5 camera, and it takes very good pictures. It isn’t as sharp as the poco xg nfc, but it’s really really close. Now the camera software has the pump shutter mode that allows you to use your palm to take a picture night mode on this smartphone isn’t good, the front camera doesn’t have a dedicated, led flashlight, but it uses the display as its flash and it takes decent pictures At night for video, the front camera can shoot in 1080p at 30 frames per second doesn’t have image stabilization, but the quality of the video looks good hello guys. Now. This is a front facing camera of the redmi note 9s right now: i’m shooting in 1080p 30 frames per second, and this is the highest resolution for the front facing camera. It doesn’t have image stabilization, so yeah. If you run your image is just going to be all over the place. So what do you guys think about the video quality and audio quality coming out from the redmi note? 9S from the front camera? Let me know in the comment section below: it can also record in slow motion at 120 frames per second, but the resolution is 720p moving to the rear cameras. The redmi note 9s comes with a 48 megapixel main camera, an 8 megapixel ultra wide camera, a 5 megapixel micro camera and a 2 megapixel depth camera.
The main camera is a 12 megapixel sensor and using the 48m mode through pixel binning. It captures the image four times match them into one, to give you a 48 megapixel image and with the improved image quality. The file size is larger, 2x zoom is all right and it also has panorama mode to take ultra wide shots and that’s, not the end of the features. You can also create time lapse with this smartphone for video. The redmi note 9s can shoot in 4k 30 frames per second, with no image stabilization image. Stabilization is available when you drop the resolution to 1080p 30 frames per second and it’s stable. It also has the pro mode where you can change the focal length. The iso and white balance this is very useful for those that, like manual settings, to have more controls in creating a video overall, the red camera of this smartphone does a very good job. Considering the price of the device and it’s been very reliable whenever i want to use it to take a picture now. My redmi note 9s is still running android 10 with miui 12.0.3. It hasn’t gotten the android 11 updates yet, but any moment from now it should get it for the special features it has. The game topple mode allows you to take a screenshot record, your gameplay open and use other apps, while you’re still playing a game. It has a video toolbox that allows you to turn up the display and listen to a song on apps like youtube.
You can also record your screen with it share what you’re watching to another display and launch another application. It has the floating window feature second, space, which is very popular and the light mode which gives you bigger icons and text. Now the redmi note 9s comes with a snapdragon 720 g processor it’s, an 8 nanometer processor and it’s a fast mid range processor. I made a video comparing it with a poco x3 nfc with a snapdragon 732g processor, the 720g processor isn’t as fast as a 732g processor, but it held its ground and i’m extremely happy with the performance with six gigabytes of ram. Multitasking has been fantastic, although miui is very aggressive in closing down apps that run in the background to save a bit of battery and improve performance, but that hasn’t bothered me in my day to day usage. Now. Yes, there are two benchmark score of this device and for the geekbench score, this is the result. As you can see, this smartphone hasn’t slowed down over the months, i’ve been using it. The redmi note 9s also comes with an andreyno 618 gpu, and that has helped games like pubg call of duty to run well, but not at the highest graphics settings game chain impact is playable at the lower settings and it will hang if you try to run It on high settings and high frame rates, while re racing is playable. Now the battery in the redmi note 9s is a 5020 milliamps battery and it held up very well.
I must say i usually get a full day usage out of it. It takes about one hour 57 minutes to charge this device from zero to 100, which isn’t great now right. Now the price of the redmi note 9s is 96, 000 naira or 200 dollars for the 4 gigabytes ram, 64 gigabytes, internal storage and 106 thousand naira or 220 for the 6 gigabytes ram 128 gigabytes internal storage option bear in mind it might be cheaper or more Expensive, depending on your region, but after using the redmi note 9s for a while it’s been a very lovely smartphone. For me, it offers good value for money and it still looks modern. It has a very good build quality. The 1080p display isn’t an amoled panel, but it’s still a good display to consume media on the battery life is right up there and will last the entire day the cameras capture, good pictures and videos. The performance is good for a budget smartphone and mine hasn’t slowed down a bit so guys. This is my long term review of the redmi note 9s. If you own this device, let me know what you think about it in the comment section below and if you’re thinking of buying it right now, i would suggest you consider the redmi note 10 pro so we’ve come to the end of this video.
