30 FPS in PUBG Mobile are nice, especially in a smartphone for just $210. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 9S promises just that, thanks to its powerful Qualcomm gaming SoC.

In our review, we found that the fairly large device’s gaming qualities are actually present as promised as its performance was fast enough for smooth gaming in high details, and controls were adequately fast. The only downside: the display’s response times were slightly too slow.

If you are not particularly interested in mobile gaming but rather a mobile photography aficionado, you might find the Redmi’s quad-camera array very tempting. It might not offer high-end photo quality, but it does take decent photos and offers aspiring photographers an additional wide-angle as well as a macro lens.

Whatever you choose to do with Xiaomi’s smartphone, you will be able to do it for a very long period of time before you have to recharge the device. Thanks to its ginormous battery the Redmi Note 9S ran for almost 20 hours in our Wi-Fi test despite a comparatively high overall power consumption. And charging takes less than 2 hours thanks to the included fast charger.

So, what are the downsides you may wonder. An affordable phone like this surely must have a number of shortcomings as well. The lack of NFC, for example, will disappoint users of mobile payment systems, such as Google Pay. The Redmi Note 9S can thus not be used for contactless payment systems.

In return, it offers spacious and fast internal storage, remains cool without having to resort to thermal throttling, and features an infrared port at the top turning it into a potential TV remote.

More details, extensive test results, and sample photos taken with the Redmi Note 9S’s cameras can be found in our extensive Redmi Note 9S review.

Virtual Reality has captured my imagination and interest in particular, and I cannot wait to see what the (near) future will bring.
