Realme 9 Pro Plus Review | When 'Pro' isn't enough…
Theyve just launched their fresh new real meat 9 pro budget friendly blower, but if youve got a bit more cash to spunk on your new smartphone well, you can always opt for this bad boy. Here the real me 9 pro plus in case that pro wasnt quite pro enough already, the 6.4 inch super shiny slab is taken on the redmi note 11 pro and the oneplus nord ce2s of the world with its budget defined specs, including a super sharp amoled screen. Dimensionally 920 smarts, an impressive 50 meg camera and 60 watt fast charging sounds lovely and all, but the main question is: does the real me, 9 pro plus still not suck when you actually slap your sim in the thing and use it as your full time? Smartphone? Well, ive had my sim in there for about a week now and heres my in depth review and for more on the latest and greatest tech. Please do poke subscribe and ding that notifications bell cheers now. My first impressions with the pro plus were strong and one week on, i still really like the hand, feel like the nord ce2, the 6.4 inch blower sits comfortably in your palm and yeah. One handed use is still a bit bloody tricky, but you do at least have some easy ui help chucked in there. Of course, the real highlight of the real me 9 pro pluss design, is that arse end, which is incredibly sparkly and shiny.
It kind of looks like tinkerbell and the gang have been really going to town on it seriously just point this thing at someone and theyll probably be dazzled into a stupor for a good hour or two, the only problem being that because of course it is a Glossy rear end, it does pick up scuffy marks rather easily, so you have to give a bit of a buff and occasionally to keep it all sparkly and shiny. This is the sunrise blue model, which can actually change color over the course of a few seconds to a lovely ruby reds whenever sunlight strikes it so here in the uk, youll maybe see that happen a couple times a year because im an organ, it actually kind Of reminds me of those old 90s tie dye t shirts that used to change color when they heated up, i really loved how, when you played footy and got all sweaty, the pits turned a really nice, dank blue wonderfully gross, and the good news is the real Me9 pro plus seems pretty hardy too, despite that plaquey back no scratching to speak of so far, while the pre installed screen protector keeps the front end tidy too and its great to see the latest android 12 os slapped on here when some rivals, like the redmi Note 11 pro have emerged with the previous generation os still on board, and the good news is real. Me is offering a couple of years of android os updates with the 9 pro plus, as well as the usual security updates.
All of those great os 12 features are packed in here, including the excellent privacy controls plus matching up the ui colors, with your chosen wallpaper realmes launcher allows you to tweak everything from the always on display to the fingerprint animation, while also adding helpful features. Like a notifications, light which strikes on both sides of the screen, its a veritable buffer of personalization and quite frankly, i love get my face stuck into it, and yet the settings menu here on real me ui3 can still be quite daunting if youre not used to It but at least it packs in quite a lot of features that are worth having real me. Thankfully, doesnt stuff, its smartphones, with as much crap wear as rivals like xiaomi, just a couple of bits like booking.com, which can be booted right. The hell off no worries, and after a full week of using the real me 9 pro plus as my personal handset, i havent noticed any dodgy behavior in there. No apps acting up no random crashes, no buggering about at all security, wise youve, got a perfectly decent optical fingerprint sensor that works, even if your hands are a bit sweaty and face recognition. If you need a fallback now, it seems like most mid ranges. These days. Come packing an amoled screen which is great to see literally because the realme 9 pro plus 6.4 inch display is once again pleasing to the peepers its powerfully bright, with sharp contrast, wide viewing angles and vibrant color reproduction.
That makes vivid photos and video really shine factor in the actually pretty decent stereo speakers, along with a headphone, jack and reliable bluetooth support, and maybe your fans should definitely be more than happy enough and also like many rivals. The real me 9 pro pluses panel boasts a 90 hertz refresh rate for super silky, smooth finish as for the mediatek dimensionally 920 chipset, which runs the show here. Well that adds 5g support across both of the available sim slots, and it also means smooth everyday performance. No matter what youre up to even if youre, a gamer youll be able to play. Most titles no worries. Although the most demanding fares, such as gentian impactors struggle a bit even on the default low graphical settings, stick to the standard stuff like call of duty, mobile, pubg, etc and youll enjoy a perfect frame rate with responsive touchscreen controls, and you can keep on playing as Long as the battery lasts, with some built in vapor chamber, coolant, which keeps the roomy 9 pro plus from getting toasty even with endless. Oh, my god, some freaking kid just shot me in the back of the bloody head again action. You get a 4 500 milliamp battery crammed into this thing, and that meant i could keep on going on the realme 9 pro plus all day long. Until finally, i collapsed in a heap from exhaustion. There was just one day where i came really close to killing this thing in a single 24 hour period, but then, basically, that involved about four or five hours of video streaming about an hour of skyping lots of other camera player.
Just non stop use pretty much and that almost did for it, but even then its still just about clung onto life until i was tucked up with teddy and you dont even need to worry about plugging this phone in overnight either, because youve got 60 watt. Super dart charge packed in there, so you just top it up in the mornings job done. So if youve stuck with me thus far, youll know that the real me 9 pro plus, is a pretty solid all around smartphone, but we havent even touched on the best bit yet and that is the camera tech thats slapped on the shiny, spangly color changing arse. The primary camera sensor is a 50 megapixel sony imx 766, with built in optical image stabilization, and this really does capture impressive photos for this price point. Its a step up from many rivals in strong light, youll, occasionally get a bit of saturation, but the real me, 9 pro plus, can cope admirably with sharp contrast. These test shots serve up more detail than the competition, especially in the darker areas, even indoors. The detail levels dont noticeably drop while color reproduction is still close to natural in ambient light. Moving subjects do occasionally look fuzzy if they are in motion, thats, no real, surprise, oh and just a minor randomer size never ever get a chocolate orange beer, even if its just a quid its kind of like an umpa lumper just threw up in a can.
The real me 9, pro plus, is 8 megapixel. Ultra wide lens also does in shock struggling to produce as natural looking results as the primary sensor, but its handy for fitting more into the frame, and yes, real me like xiaomi and many others feels obligated, seemingly to slap a macro lens on the back end of Its smartphones as well so uh yeah youve, got one of those here too yippee hooray celebrations. Youve also got a big old bag of bonus modes, including a night mode which can brighten up your subject effectively as long as theyre, completely still, of course – and there is a full on pro modes on here as well. If you want to tinker with all of the settings and get a very precise kind of shot for your home movies, you can record 4k video at 30 frames per second and thats, the setting that i stuck with, and even if color reproduction isnt exactly entirely natural. You will get sharp visuals as well as clear audio from all directions. Images do get a little softer indoors and in the evenings, pretty typical from mid range mobiles, but nothing too shocking and even the stabilization isnt actually dreadful at that 4k resolution, when youre bopping, along and shooting simultaneously and last up, if youre an instagram a fan that 16 meg selfie, shooter isnt anything special, but itll do the job as long as again you arent testing it with any particularly troublesome conditions.
However, if you do want to shoot a bit of video using that front facing camera, it does max out at full hd resolution, and you know the quality is absolutely fine again. The audio pickup is all right. Nothing particularly stunning on the visuals side of thing, but its fine for a bit of basic vlogging. So there you have it. You lovely buggers. That, in a nutshell, is the real me 9 pro plus, as you can see its a satisfying all around budget friendly, smartphone. Of course, its right up there as far as the budget friendly phones go away, is a pro plus model after all, but if youre a slightly more demanding user whos still on too tight of a budget to really stretch up to the upper mid ranges and the Flagships well, itll do the job that camera is definitely one of the highlights been able to cope with pretty much anything youre chucking it within reason, of course, but if you are a gamer, however, i would say there are alternatives that can cope better with the more Intensive titles that likes the gentian impacts such as the redmi note, 11 pro so thats.
