Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro: Cheap mid-range smartphone with a 5020-mAh battery

The mid-range smartphone Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro offers an exciting price-performance ratio. For 250 Euros (~$282), buyers receive a phone with a 6.67-inch IPS display, 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of internal storage, the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC and a 5020-mAh battery.

With a capacity of 5020 mAh, the battery of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro is decidedly large and unmatched in size by most current smartphones. However, Redmi's own Note 9S contains the same battery, making it a competitor in this aspect.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro shows a seemingly unlimited amount of stamina in our reivew. With almost 20 hours, the smartphone reaches an excellent runtime in our Wi-Fi test (display brightness set to 150 nits, loading a web page every 30 seconds). When playing a H.264 video, it lasts fairly long as well. Even under maximum load, it still achieves almost 5 hours of battery life. This should translate to real-world runtimes of at least one day or even multiple days.

This may fill those who have already purchased its sibling Redmi Note 9S with regret. While the Redmi Note 9 Pro is physically almost identical, it offers a few higher-end features for a rather small premium. The main differences: 6 GB of RAM regardless of the storage configuration, a 64-MP instead of a 48-MP camera, a more powerful quick charger (33 watts vs. 22.5 watts) and, perhaps the most important difference, an NFC module.

In 1986, when I had annoyed my parents long enough, they finally bought me a C64 that I had seen at a friend's place - and immediately knew that this was what I wanted. Since then, the fascination for computers has never left me and basically I tinker with everything I can get my hands on. From the C64 to the Amiga 500 and a hugely uncool IBM computer with 8088 CPU (and green IBM monochrome monitor!) in the early 90s, the list grew longer and longer. The current projects are called PC, Tablet and Smartphone.
