Reviews for the Xiaomi Redmi 9T

78.9% Xiaomi Redmi 9T review: Entry-level smartphone with huge battery, NFC, and stereo sound | Notebookcheck
Since the price of the Redmi 9T has already dropped considerably compared to its MSRP of 170 Euros (~$204), the smaller sibling of the Redmi Note 9T offers a lot of smartphone for users on a tight budget according to its spec sheet.

70% Xiaomi Redmi 9T review
Source: GSM Arena English
Despite the relatively higher price of the Redmi 9T compared to the Poco M3, it still holds well against the competition due to several key features that are hard to come across in a single package. We are talking adequate SoC performance, 4GB/64GB base memory, an excellent set of stereo speakers, a high-resolution display, humongous 6,000 mAh battery, IR port, FM radio and dedicated microSD card slot.

The smartphone overall has all good features except a few ones. If the charging speed and front camera resolution do not bother you then go for it. The phone has an impressive battery, camera and CPU performance. It is a good option for those who want flagship-like features in an affordable phone.

We’re seeing a lot of budget-friendly phones running around with pretty much the same hardware recently and it’ll be interesting to see how these devices stack up against each other. However, we do know that Xiaomi has a very voracious fan base that will be eager to show the brand’s latest offering some love.

73% Redmi 9T Review — The Perfect Entry For 2021 Budget Smartphones
Source: Pokde English
Starting from the price of RM499, the Redmi 9T presents itself as a decent device that offer some nifty specs for its segment. The review unit that we’ve got is the 4GB RAM variant and while we can’t complain much given its price tag, we would highly recommend you to get the 6GB RAM option instead. We just feel that the device would benefit much better and offer a smoother overall experience should you plan on getting the Redmi 9T. For what it offers, we give the Redmi 9T our Bronze Pokdeward.
