Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi 9

Xiaomi Mi 9 camera review
Source: DxOMark English
Xiaomi has impressed us in the past with devices such as the Mi MIX 3 and Mi 8, but the Mi 9 takes things to a whole new level, placing the Chinese company’s latest flagship model firmly into the big league of smartphone cameras—right up there with the heavy-hitters from Apple, Samsung, and Huawei. With convincing results across the board and no major flaws, the Mi 9 is the third-best device so far for still imaging, edged out only by Huawei juggernauts Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro. In video mode it does even better, finding itself at the very top of our ranking, making it the top choice for mobile video shooters. This is partly due to the Mi 9 being the first test device recording 4K video by default and therefore scoring very high for texture and detail, but it also puts in a very good performance in all other test categories.

Xiaomi Mi 9 hands-on: Flashy, not fussy
Source: Android Authority English
What the Xiaomi Mi 9 lacks in superfluous “gimmicks” it makes up for in functional features we can all appreciate. Adding a third camera and introducing faster charging tech is a great addition to the Mi family. While it may not be the most attention-seeking choice among some aggressive competition, the Mi 9’s unassuming list of attributes is sure to still win over plenty of fans.
