Xiaomi Mi 9 Review: The Best Cheap Smartphone in 2019

Buying a phone is not a big deal but buying a mobile of your desire is the main thing. 

The mobile industry is getting better and better nowadays. If we talk about the latest mobiles, then Xiaomi Mi 9 should be listed in them.

What is it?

Xiaomi Mi 9 approves itself as the biggest smartphone bargain of 2019. 

Xiaomi is a product which has all the latest technology features such as Snapdragon 855, 48MP main camera, fast 20W wireless charging of 3300mAh battery, AMOLED screen, multi-function NFC, fifth generation In-Display Fingerprint Sensor, Android 9.0 (Pie), 12GB of RAM and great storage.

Naturally, the Mi 9 is by no means irreproachable compared to the Samsung Galaxy S10 just as fresh, and it has Android skin rather atypical for the MIUI 10 Android will not suit everyone. 

However, this does not reduce from the fact that you are getting a huge amount of technology for your money.


- the latest operating system of Android 9.0 (Pie)
- A fast CPU: Qualcomm SDM855 Snapdragon 855 (7 nm), Octa-core (1×2.84 GHz Kryo 485 & 3×2.42 GHz Kryo 485 & 4×1.8 GHz Kryo 485)
- Adreno 640, without any lags, offers a superb performance

- 6/8 GB RAM (that is very useful in multitasking performance)
- Graphics processor & high-end processor


- No expandable memory via card slot

The engine of the Xiaomi Mi 9 was not cornered. This is one of the first phones which are powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 system-on-chip. 

It is also very efficient, which should allow you to make gains in areas such as battery life. 

I am using this phone which has a glass back with holographic finishes. The under-glass fingerprint scanner is very easy and fast and I love the teardrop display.

I did not experience any performance issues during general usage. There is a dedicated performance booster that triggers when the phone detects that you are playing a game. 

It releases up memory and managing resources and guarantees that notifications and other distractions do not interfere with your game session.

1. Game Performance:

I have used this mobile for mobile games like Fortnite and PUBG Mobile. The support of 60fps gameplay is also received by Mi 9 in Fortnite Mobile. 

This is the feature which is in some selected devices. Its performance is much better because of the 8GB of RAM. 

The game display is amazing when you have 157.5 x 74.67 x 7.61mm screen, 600 nit brightness, 6.39" Super AMOLED, 2340x1080px resolution, 18.7:9 aspect ratio, 402ppi, HDR 10 and DCI-P3 compliant.

2. Antutu Performance Chart:

Xiaomi is leading the chart with a score of 371,849. The Mi is far ahead of the top smartphones.

3. Camera Performance:

I have really enjoyed the camera feature of Mi 9. The triple lens 48MP camera with a pleasingly wide 7/1.75 aperture. It has the zoom capacity of 12MP, f/2.2, 2x zoom. Wide camera range of 16MP f/2.2, including the front 20MP, f/2.0.

4. Battery Performance:

I have tested this smartphone for different purposes but I didn’t run out of battery on any day of testing. 

Its battery performance is tremendous which is 3,300mAh Li-Po (sealed). It supports fast battery charging of 27W and also contains 20W fast wireless charging.

5. Carrier  Performance:

I have used the dual SIM facility. It has LTE-A, 4-Band carrier aggregation. I also love Cat.16/13 (1Gbps/150Mbps). 

USB Type-C is also very easy to use, I can easily attach and detach the phone from the charger. Good range of Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac. 

At the same time, dual-band GPS is what I needed. It includes the best range of Bluetooth 5.0.

Android Features:

Mi 9 comes with Android 9 (Pie). There are some extra features as Mi Remote App, a small notes app, smart file manager, music player, and Opera browser. It also includes a dark mode display.

Review Rate:

Review rate (4.5/5) is something by which we can have an idea to purchase the product or not. Higher the review rate increases the number of buyers.

How did I test Xiaomi?

The Mi 9 is a little dissimilar. It doesn’t leave from the basic Mi formula of offering high-end specs in an ordinary design at a sensible price. 

But more so than any other Mi series phone in the past, the $500 Mi 9 reduces the space with the elegant lead opponent even further. 

If you live in a country where the Mi 9 is accessible, there’s a very small reason not to notice it.

Figure 7 - high-end specs in an ordinary design

The Mi series has confirmed its own design language at this point, and this continues with the Mi 9. 

There’s the same stainless steel that’s narrow on the sides than the top and bottom border, leaving a bend glass panel to fill in space. 

The left side of the phone has a devoted Google Assistant button, which I could take or leave. I would preferably have it than a Bixby button.

Overall, it’s a smooth, pretty device and it’s one of the slippier, more fingerprint-liable phones I’ve seen in a while. I’d doubtlessly like the glittering purple and blue option better. 

Why do you purchase it?

The smartphone has all the modern technology we need as a part of the current era. A smartphone with such low price and great specification is far better than those at a high and unaffordable price.

Figure 6 - impressive capabilities at prices

Xiaomi continues to offer smartphones with impressive capabilities at prices that reverse the status quo. 

In a market where most of the flagship companies are currently dancing around the £ 1,000 mark, the Mi 9 operates at a similar level of quality and performance, although it costs about half as much as the iPhone XS, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10, and more.

In markets such as the UK, where high-priced contracts are common, such a low price for handsets should appeal to those looking for a high-end experience without sufficient revenue. 

The only question mark is the long-term support of the phone, with an unconfirmed path for OS updates and security.

Elsewhere, the hardware and software experience is as rigorous as any high-end phone you currently find in stores - which makes you think that the higher price of a phone like the iPhone XS.

I have purchased this phone to fulfill my requirements of using the latest digital technology which includes many exciting features. 

This is the reason I recommend others to buy this phone. This phone has all the things which we need in this era.
