Reviews for the realme 9 Pro

80.5% realme 9 Pro Smartphone review - Finally mid-range with 5G | Notebookcheck
The realme 9 Pro had to relinquish its claim to leadership in realme's mid-range series. It is now a mid-range phone for around 320 Euros with a large battery and a fast processor. But is that enough to stand up to the strong competition from OnePlus or Xiaomi?
Realme 9 Pro Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Realme 9 Pro smartphone is a good deal for those looking for a smartphone with 5G support and performance but costs seem to be a little high as per the specs. Also, the absence of IP rating, gorilla glass protection, and AMOLED maybe let you down, but the battery life, up-to-date OS software & speedy chipset are definitely the plus point. If you are looking for an alternative option to the Realme 9 Pro, you can check out the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11E Pro, but the final decision is up to you as per your need.

Realme 9 Pro Review – Great Performance At Great Price
Source: Cashify English
Realme 9 Pro is definitely one of the most feature-rich Android phones available at this price point. The Realme 9 Pro 5G is a solid option for its pricing, with features like a fast Snapdragon 695 CPU, 120 Hz display, 33W fast charging, RAM expansion feature, and Android 12 out-of-the-box. The camera performs admirably, supports 5G, and outperforms its predecessor. Plus, you can't take your eyes away from its dazzling Light Shift colour-changing design. This phone lacks stereo speakers, an AMOLED screen, and 50W fast charging, yet despite these flaws, it is a good alternative for users looking for a smartphone around Rs. 20,000. Overall, if you're on a limited budget, this is a wonderful option, as it offers everything you might want from a smartphone without costing a fortune. It's an excellent mid-range smartphone.

realme 9 Pro 5G Review
Source: Yugatech English
To wrap things up, the realme 9 Pro is priced at PHP 16,990 (8GB+128GB) and it’s a nice smartphone with an attractive design, a large display, great cameras, excellent performance, good battery life, and fast charging. It provides a huge leap in performance compared to the realme 8 Pro thanks to the newer CPU and the inclusion of 5G. It faces a lot of competition, though, considering there are other devices in the market that also has 5G, has an AMOLED screen and bigger storage in the same price range. But if you like the realme vibe, this one is a performer.

Overall it is good that realme decided to up the ante for a better vanilla version of their device. With this, we have the option to choose between an AMOLED panel or a 120Hz refresh rate display. We will announce its price along with its full review so stay tuned with our full review.

realme 9 Pro Review

For features like 120 Hz display, fast Snapdragon 695 CPU, 33W fast charging, dynamic RAM expansion, and the latest Android 12 out-of-the-box, the realme 9 Pro 5G is a good choice for its price. The camera performs well, it supports 5G, offers improved performance over its predecessor, and you can’t get your eyes off its shimmering Light Shift color-changing design. You don’t get stereo speakers on this phone, an AMOLED screen, and 50W fast charging, but despite having a few degrades, is still a good option for users who want a smartphone under the ₹20,000 price range.

80% Realme 9 Pro review: an affordable smartphone with style
Source: T3 English
The Realme 9 Pro is a striking phone, the new design and colourways are modern and make it look like a much more premium device than it actually is. That's not all it has going for it though, you'll also get a clear, bright screen as well as reliable performance. It's a shame that the camera tech has been changed because the 108MP camera on the Realme 8 Pro was its crowning glory, but you'll still get good enough shots on this handset, even though they could be more detailed. All in all, if you're on a budget this will be a good choice, giving you everything you could need from a phone without an eye-watering price tag. It's a solid mid-ranger.

68% Realme 9 Pro review
Source: GSM Arena English
However, the €320 pricing in Europe is just way too much. The current price tag puts the Realme 9 Pro into an awkward position and it's really hard to recommend over the majority of the mid-€300 handsets. It's hard to beat brighter OLED panels and upper mid-range chipsets with an LCD and typical mid-range SoC. It even faces competition from one of its own siblings. It would have been an easier recommendation if the device's screen was OLED even if that would have cost it a few hertzes. After all, the advertised granular control over the HRR doesn't seem to work, and the Auto refresh rate mode likes sitting at 90Hz most of the time anyway. But perhaps the hardware shortage is beginning to take its tow and Realme's uptick in prices for Europe this year is temporary. As time goes by, the 9 Pro may become a more lucrative option but for the time being, we see it performing well only in India.

Comment

Qualcomm Adreno 619: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 750G) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance is a lot better than the old Adreno 612.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 695 5G: Fast mid-range ARM SoC with 8 CPU Kryo 660 cores (two fast 2.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A77 based cores in a cluster and six power saving ARM Cortex-A55 based cores at 1.7 GHz) and a lower mid range Adreno 619 GPU. Supports only Wi-Fi 5 and is manufactured in the 6 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.60":

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.195 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


78.29%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
