78.8% realme 9i Smartphone review - Affordable mid-range model with stereo speakers | Notebookcheck
Thanks to the modern SoC and fast charging technology, the realme 9i is an interesting, affordable mid-range phone. The battery lasts for a long time and stereo sound is also provided. So is this a real bargain?

The Realme 9i is a fantastic value for money Android phone which does the basics in style, offers great battery performance, and the cameras are pretty good too. It’s priced very nicely, looks good, is lightweight and is easy to use. It’s ideal for buyers on a budget, or people who want a reliable back-up phone. That said, the Redmi Note 11 is priced the same, offers a lot of the same features, and if you were to split hairs, you might be tempted by the fact that it has an AMOLED screen, whereas the Realme 9i has an LCD. The older Realme 8 also has AMOLED on offer. It’s also not a 5G phone, and while you shouldn’t necessarily expect 5G support for £200, the Poco M4 Pro 5G does include this, and it’s only about £40 more, so that might sway you. These are relatively small issues, though. The Realme 9i is an excellent budget phone that will more than satisfy most buyers after a cheap ‘n cheerful device.

realme 9i Review Philippines: Budget Battery Warrior
Source: Unbox English
The realme 9i feels more of an iterative upgrade to last year’s 8i. The 9i sacrifices gaming performance for vastly better battery life and small upgrades like stereo speakers and faster charging speeds. Its pricing does put it in a tight spot, especially since there are 5G phones that are available locally for roughly the same SRP.

Okay, so finally let’s talk about the price. The realme 9i is available for PHP 11,990. And on its own, we can say that it’s a good device for casual use, it has a better and updated chipset, namely the Snapdragon 680 in place of the Helio G96 in the 8i. However, the phone becomes harder to justify as a good update given how little it changes things from its predecessor. The realme 8i might still offer a little more value at the same price for many users.

Realme 9i Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Realme 9i smartphone specs look a lot like the Realme 8i smartphone. Even the 8i has much better offerings than this one at almost the same pricing. In fact, Realme’s 9 & 9 Pro+ were much more price-effective. Although the prism design is alluring, Except for a strong build, battery & appealing layout, everything else is just average or below. So, if you are okay buying a 4G phone with a primary display and camera under the mid-range, you may look for it. Or if you get discount offers, it can be a fair deal. But there are considerably more promising alternatives in the market including a favorable set of specifications such as the Oppo K9x. So choose wisely according to requirements and needs to pick the best option.

Realme 9i hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
So that's it. We've had our brief little hands-on with the Realme 9i, and it felt a lot like a Realme 8i with a slower screen, worse-performing chipset, but nicer build and feel in the hand. What's more important is that if you're in the market for a phone at this price, you have some good alternatives, even from Realme's itself. The 8i is still on sale and it's the same price as the 9i, which might push many towards that phone - 120Hz over 90Hz alone might make the difference. It's not all bad, of course. The Prism design really is nice to look at and lovely to touch. And with a discount or two, the Realme 9i could easily become a great deal.

82% Test realme 9i. Tani smartfon do wszystkiego z zaskakującą słabością
Source: GSM Arena English
Mam pewne wątpliwości, czy realme 9i to opłacalny smartfon. Kosztuje tysiaka, a wydaje się gorszy od poprzednika – nie ma wyświetlacza 120 Hz, jego procesor przegrywa w benchmarkach, wciąż brakuje mu aparatu szerokokątnego, a cena poszybowała w górę. Nie wiem, dlaczego realme 9i odbył swoją premierę w takim stanie technicznym – odpowiedź na to pytanie może być następująca: szybkie tempo wydawania telefonów dało się producentowi we znaki i nie zdołał on zawiesić poprzeczki wyżej. Z drugiej strony realme 9i to dobry średniak, który odpłaca się świetnym czasem pracy, pełnym wyposażeniem oraz wysoką kulturą pracy. Nie obyło się bez wpadek, jednak żadna z nich nie okazała się dla niego dyskwalifikująca podczas moich testów. Osobom chcącym zakupić realme 9i zaleciłbym cierpliwość, albowiem cena telefonu musi spaść – jeśli kwota w promocjach poszybuje w dół o 200 złotych, jego oferta będzie dużo atrakcyjniejsza. A do tego momentu możecie zdecydować się na mocnego poprzednika.

Review – realme 9i
Source: NLT English
All in all, for the price of RM869, I think the realme 9i is a rather decent phone overall. Some might say that it’s a bit more expensive than its competitors but I’d argue that the realme 9i is actually a well-balanced phone in all of the 6 aspects that we’ve talked about in this video. The software experience is important and the realme UI 2.0 is actually decent.

The starting price of the Realme 9i in India is Rs. 13,999 and this could make it appealing to those on a budget. However, the more expensive variant competes with other smartphones that offer better performance along with 5G connectivity, which the 9i lacks. This new model offers stereo speakers and faster 33W charging, which are upgrades over its predecessor. However, the 90Hz refresh rate is a downgrade compared to the 120Hz display on the Realme 8i (Review). The Realme 9i's camera performance is also sub-par which makes it all the more difficult to recommend the higher priced variant to those looking for an all-rounder. Surprisingly, the Realme 8i offers better features and camera quality for the same kind of money. If you are looking for a future-proof smartphone with 5G connectivity, you could consider the Moto G51 (Review) or the Redmi Note 11T 5G (Review) instead.

Realme 9i Review: High on Style, low on price
Source: The Times of India English
The Realme 9i is a considerable option for people who want to buy a big smartphone with a good feature set and great looks at an affordable price. The large display and dual speaker makes for great multimedia experiences, and the long battery life with fast charging is a boon. If you are looking for these things in your next smartphone, there's nothing better than the Realme 9i at this price. That said, the camera output is sub-par and the lack of an ultra-wide camera is missed. The rest of the lackluster appeal makes it difficult for us to recommend it over other "comparatively exciting" 4G and 5G phones available at this price, especially when value for money is concerned. Those looking for a faster refresh rate of 120Hz, 5G networks and better cameras at a similar price range can go for the Moto G51 5G, Redmi Note 11S, and its predecessor -- the Realme 8i, among others.

Realme 9i First Impressions: A Worthy Successor?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Realme 9i ships with Android 11 and the Realme UI 2.0 skin on top. My unit had the December 2021 Android security patch. This phone has a number of preinstalled apps and most of them can be uninstalled. In the brief time I have spent using the 9i so far, I have not faced any issues while navigating the UI, and everything has worked smoothly. The price of the Realme 9i starts in the sub-Rs. 15,000 segment, and here it faces some stiff competition from the Redmi Note 10S (Review), its own predecessor the Realme 8i, and its siblings from the Narzo series. The higher variant of the Realme 9i is in the same price range as the base variant of the Redmi Note 11T 5G which boasts of 5G connectivity as well. So should you put your money on the Realme 9i? Or would you be better off with the alternatives? Stay tuned for the full review, coming soon.

The price of the Realme 9i starts in the sub-Rs. 15,000 segment, and here it faces some stiff competition from the Redmi Note 10S (Review), its own predecessor the Realme 8i, and its siblings from the Narzo series. The higher variant of the Realme 9i is in the same price range as the base variant of the Redmi Note 11T 5G which boasts of 5G connectivity as well. So should you put your money on the Realme 9i? Or would you be better off with the alternatives? Stay tuned for the full review, coming soon.

realme 9 Pro Plus

The latest to join the Realme family is none other than the Realme 9 Pro Plus. As far as its design is concerned, the case is made of plastic but the glossy back is very susceptible to fingerprints. However, the stability is rather convincing as even stronger finger pressure does not get through to the screen. It is worth noting that the workmanship is also clean and without noticeable edges. There is also a 3.5 mm jack for sound output with Hi-Res certification, as is NFC, and the user can even measure their heart rate via the fingerprint sensor as a small extra. The phone is available in three colours namely Aurora Green, a dark green, Midnight Black, a velvety blue shimmering black, and Sunrise Blue, a bright blue that is the most unusual colour with a coating which fades under sunlight. In terms of its display, it is worth mentioning that the AMOLED displays are now something completely normal even in the mid-range. Having said that, the Realme 9 Pro Plus offers the typical Full HD resolution, but the brightness is more even than in the predecessor. However, those who are looking for high peak brightness will have to look at Xiaomi or Samsung as the screen in the Realme phone cannot keep up to it. In return, the display accuracy of the colours is rather good and the response times are also convincing.
As for its performance, this smartphone has been equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 920. This processor is a SoC from 2020, but with quite high performance. In terms of its camera, the Sony IMX776 with optical image stabilization serves as the main sensor of the mid-range phone. It has a resolution of 50 megapixels but the effective resolution is reduced to 12 megapixels via pixel binning, which creates larger and thus more light-sensitive pixels on the sensor. While the overall image sharpness is in the average range, the brightening and colour reproduction are good. With low light and high contrasts, the smartphone manages to produce warm, sometimes quite detailed pictures. Apart from that, the wide-angle camera with 8 megapixels is on the usual level. While a lot is lost when it gets a bit more into detail, the pictures are good for overview shots. In addition, Realme has also installed its own macro lens with a meager 2 megapixels, which takes decent close-ups. As for the front, there is also a selfie camera with 16 megapixels. However, it is worth noting that the pictures could be a bit brighter and show more details in dark areas. Overall, it is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

83.8% realme 9 Pro Plus Smartphone Review- Lots of performance and decent low-light photography | Notebookcheck
The realme 9 Pro+ is the fastest and best-equipped model in the mid-range series. Thanks to 60-watt charging, fast storage and a fast processor, it does not have to hide, but it also has strong competition. We take a closer look at the smartphone in the test.

On the other hand, the battery is nice, both in terms of capacity and charging. The performance is fine, the screen is also very nice, and the most enjoyable is the quality of the photos, which in my opinion stands out beyond the price range of this model. Taking all this into account, this phone, despite its shortcomings, remains recommendable.

80% Realme 9 Pro Plus Review: Camera clout on a budget
Source: Stuff TV English
We loved the OnePlus Nord 2, and our only real gripe with it was that mediocre battery life. With the 9 Pro+, Realme gives us a very similar phone, but improves upon the battery life thanks to a more efficient chipset. You still get a glass back and front, flagship imaging and reliably good performance, not to mention very fast charging. The Realme 9 Pro+ also edges ahead of the Nord 2 by packing double the storage. In the UK, it’s available in a 256GB version, and costs £50 less than the Nord 2. This makes the phone excellent value. As for other competition, much of it comes from the Realme camp – the cheaper Realme GT2 Master Edition packs a much more powerful processor but a worse camera. Finally, Xiaomi’s budget brands, Poco and Redmi offer viable alternatives, with the Poco F3 out-classing the 9 Pro’s power and screen quality, and the Redmi Note 11 Pro costing less. Despite all these alternatives though, we’d pick the Realme 9 Pro+ over most of the competition given its excellent camera and ample storage

The Realme 9 Pro Plus – Flagship Camera Killer
Source: Manila Shaker English
For the specs and camera technology, it is priced at 23,990 which is a bang for the buck kind of thing. Realme’s mid-range offering with that price point is a go-to in terms of specs with the Dimensity 920 and Mali G68 really stands out in the market today. There is a lot of smartphone industry that now opted for MediaTek’s Dimensity since it is a stronger chipset than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon. However, Snapdragon chipsets have better optimizations on most of the games in the market today. The Realme 9 Pro Plus has a flagship design and build but with a mid-range price point which is a win-win situation if you’re a gaming or camera type of person. The Realme 9 Pro Plus camera is something we should consider for its price. It gives an amazing output of images and videos plus if you are a hardcore gamer, it could suit you best if you have a budget playing around with that amount. For the extra feature and aesthetic, you should definitely get the Sunrise Blue colorway for the Light Shift design.

Realme 9 Pro+ Review: Jack Of All, Master Of Many
Source: Gadgetbyte Nepal English
Summing up this review, after having used the Realme 9 Pro+ for over a month now, it’s certainly grown on me. This is not your typical value-for-money phone that prioritizes sheer performance over everything else. And gamers will be better off with Snapdragon 870-powered phones from last year like the iQOO 7, Mi 11X, POCO F3, and such for a little extra money. Still and all, the Realme 9 Pro+ would’ve been an absolute slam dunk if the company had somehow managed to go with Dimensity 1200 or even Snapdragon 870 chip. Also, Realme’s got to sort out all those major and minor concerns I talked about earlier like HDR playback on OTT platforms, future updates, and everything else.

85% Realme 9 Pro+ Review: Realme does it again
Source: Phandroid English
We don’t know what kind of magic Realme is pulling over there. Obviously, the company is just a sub-brand of Oppo, but what Realme is doing with its budget and mid-range phones feels a lot like the early days of OnePlus. But instead of trying to launch in new markets with an archaic invite system, Realme has just exploded onto the scene with competitive pricing and even more impressive results. I thoroughly enjoy using the Realme 9 Pro+, and while I don’t know if I would use it as my daily driver, it’s definitely a contender. Considering that I’m someone who primarily uses flagship phones, it means a lot to me that a phone stood out to this extent. One can only hope that Realme continues to impact the market in different ways, and hopefully, we’ll see the company enter the U.S. market.

To wrap things up, let’s talk about the price. Locally, the realme 9 Pro+ now has an SRP of PHP 23,990 (8GB + 256GB). It got some minor upgrades from the regular 9 Pro version that can cater to specific users’ wants such as better cameras, fast charging, and a more vibrant AMOLED display. Unless these aren’t a big deal for you, then the lower 9 Pro might be a better choice, or yet, you can still even consider last year’s realme 8 Pro if 5G connectivity isn’t your priority.

The fluid Super AMOLED display, attractive look, up-to-date Android OS are surely a plus point of this smartphone. However, the cons like no IP rating, SD card slot, others make it a bit over-priced. We have covered the disadvantages of this phone in a separate section. But you can consider this phone for its plus points and it might be a great deal for Realme fans. However, if you want to grab the best value-packed option, there are tons of choices offered in the market. Therefore, one must check out the competitive alternatives like the Realme GT Master or Vivo iQOO U5 before making the final call as per your need.

90% Realme 9 Pro Plus Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Realme 9 Pro Plus offers a genuine top grade option for anyone willing to pay up to £350 for their next smartphone – especially if photography is a priority. It might not be as powerful as the Poco F3, and its display isn’t quite as fluid, but its 50MP main camera punches way above its weight. For sheer image quality and low light poise, it fills the mid-range spot vacated by the Pixel 4a. It’s also simply a very well balanced phone, with perfectly adequate performance and an appealing 6.4-inch OLED display. Fast charging completes a remarkably well judged mid-range package.

realme 9 Pro+ 5G Review: A Real Beauty
Source: Lowyat.net English
The realme 9 Pro+ is an eccentric device with its own personality, but that comes at a slightly higher price for a phone with these specs. The under-display fingerprint scanner’s placement is a daily annoyance and the camera’s quality is hit-and-miss in most situations. If you’re on a tight budget and specifically want the phone for the colour-shifting design, the regular 9 Pro that starts at RM949 might be a better option, if you don’t mind the lack of AMOLED or the rapid 60W charging. To be clear, I actually like this phone and think that anyone who purchases it for its aesthetics won’t regret it. The only reason I am not personally recommending it is because I’m a stickler for value, and there are a few options out there that can objectively outperform the phone for the same price.

60% Realme 9 Pro Plus review: Compromises galore
Source: Android Authority English
The Realme 9 Pro is a classic case of a company making too many compromises to undercut the competition. Unfortunately for Realme, those compromises are significant enough to degrade the user experience, be it the sheer amount of pre-loaded apps and ads, the iffy performance, or even the lackluster HDR performance from an otherwise stellar sensor. The secondary cameras don’t really shine either, and the lack of a long-term update guarantee raises eyebrows. Overall, the Realme 9 Pro Plus comes across as a strictly average phone without any standout qualities that put it ahead of the competition. In fact, Realme’s own hardware like the Realme GT Master Edition (£329/Rs. 25,999) offers a more consistent experience for just a little more money, while the Samsung Galaxy A52s (£409) is a more well-rounded phone with a long-term software support guarantee. Meanwhile, the India-only Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge (Rs. 26,999) handily outpaces the Realme 9 Pro Plus with a brighter display, faster charging, and, arguably, a better design.

90% Realme 9 Pro+ Review: Excellent Value for Money
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
While the Realme 9 Pro+ and the 9 Pro might seem as though they have overlapping specifications, they clearly belong in different categories, given the brand's hardware choices for both these smartphones. The Realme 9 Pro is priced starting from Rs. 17,999 offers a 120Hz refresh rate display, a 5,000mAh battery, and a 64-megapixel primary camera, which actually make it seem better than the 9 Pro+ on paper. However, the Realme 9 Pro+ has an AMOLED display that can reproduce deeper blacks, 60W charging support, and a more advanced primary camera sensor plus OIS. So, despite their similar pricing, the audiences for these two phones should be quite different. The Realme 9 Pro will appeal to gamers who want a higher screen refresh rate, while the 9 Pro+ is clearly aimed at those looking to shoot better photos. As for the competition, the Xiaomi 11i seems to offer the best value at this price point with similar or slightly better hardware. There's also the Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge (Review) which is capable of 120W charging.

So, at the end of this review, we can safely conclude the Realme 9 Pro+ is an excellent smartphone despite a couple of setbacks - but hey, no phone is perfect. Its price is not what we expected. We'd recommend this Realme 9 Pro+ immediately after its first price cut/promo deals go live, and we all know those are coming sooner rather than later - Realme does these all the time. Until then, we suggest keeping this phone on your shortlists and exploring all available offers that fit your budget before deciding on your next smartphone.

80% Realme 9 Pro Plus review: This one is for shutterbugs
Source: India Today English
I think the Realme 9 Pro Plus is an out-and-out phone meant for photography enthusiasts. Although I do not mean to say this phone will not suit other needs, such as gaming, this phone has everything the shutterbug in you needs from a high-end phone without paying that price. The 50-megapixel camera can click amazing photos, while extra frills such as street mode give you features to experiment with. The optical image stabilisation is what creators will love, while the fast processor will make sure editing is a smooth sail. Those who are not into photography much but want a phone that is fairly good in all aspects will also like the 9 Pro Plus. Its crisp and rich display and stereo speakers will make binge-watchers happy, while games run well enough on the phone if you do not mind graphics settings a notch below the best. In my opinion, gamers can look for a better option, such as the Xiaomi 11i Hypercharge, but for everyone else, the Realme 9 Pro does bring a lot to the table. And the fact that it brings all that for Rs 24,999 makes it an appealing choice.

70% Realme 9 Pro+ Review: Mid-Range Shutterbug With Party Tricks
Source: Slashgear English
The Realme 9 Pro+ is an example of a phone that needs a second and harder look to really appreciate its value. At first glance, this model seems like a bland handset that relies on a visual gimmick to get noticed, and some people might, unfortunately, stop at that. It would be a shame, though, since the phone really does have more to offer. It might not be the fastest kid on the block, but its camera chops will definitely leave a lot of owners satisfied. It delivers a solid set of features, especially when it comes to the display and sounds, and packs battery life that won't leave you too worried. Sure, Realme could have slapped on a microSD card for good measure or pushed the refresh rate up to 120Hz. But with a starting price of around $240, it's actually not that bad overall.

80% Realme 9 Pro+ Review: Night photography champ!
Source: The Times of India English
The Realme 9 Pro+ has left us vastly surprised! After years of sub-par cameras, Realme finally has a sub-Rs. 30,000 phone that absolutely dominates as far as camera performance is concerned. The night photography performance is splendid and even in daylight, it is going to make a lot of you happy. Obviously, Realme can still tune it better to get the colour science livelier, and maybe make the ultra-wide photos as well as selfies look more natural. Nonetheless, this is easily the best camera phone we have seen at this price in a long time! Move beyond the cameras and the Realme 9 Pro+ is a capable mid range phone. It runs fast and smooth, has a good battery life, a decent display, and fast enough charging. However, Realme UI 3.0 is full of bloatware and adware, which is something it needs to pay attention to. Xiaomi’s older MIUI 12.5 and MIUI 13 are a lot cleaner, and better organised in comparison. And, when compared to the competition, the Realme 9 Pro+ isn’t an easy pick. The Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge has its blisteringly fast 120W charging tech that alters the way you use a phone.

Compared to its previous generation, the Realme 9 Pro+ is leap and bounds ahead thanks to much-needed upgrades. With a 90Hz AMOLED display offering fantastic handheld entertainment, a speedy MediaTek processor offering 5G capabilities, and a battery capacity that’s made to last, you’d be hard pressed to find an Android smartphone that can deliver this much for a more affordable price. While I wouldn’t call it a flagship killer smartphone on the same level as the OnePlus 9 or Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, it still delivers everything many general smartphone users would want — especially since the 50MP Sony IMX766 camera can take some brilliant shots. The Realme 9 Pro+ makes its way onto our best budget smartphones list, but if you have the extra cash to splash, then you’ll find you may not have to pay much more for some of the contenders on our list of best smartphones.

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.

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.

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.

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.

80.2% realme 9 5G review - Fast and affordable smartphone with 5G | Notebookcheck
The realme 9 5G is a very interesting smartphone because it comes pretty close to the much more expensive Pro-model. So does it offer a better price-performance ratio? And what has changed compared to the predecessor? We will clarify that in the review.

Realme 9 5G Review – 5G Gaming Phone in Budget
Source: Cashify English
The Realme 9 5G is a great budget phone. A good choice in terms of both design and performance. If I were to list the elements of the Realme 9 5G that I enjoyed, I would say that the phone’s display, performance, and battery life were all great. Although the camera’s quality is mediocre, it’s not bad for the price. Some users will be disappointed by the slow charging for that big battery. The lack of Android 12 on the phone is frustrating, but this is a problem with many budget devices. Realme 9 5G, on the other hand, can play most titles at high to medium settings, making it a good choice for gamers. Despite the fact that the Realme 9 5G is not the cheapest 5G smartphone in the Indian market, it offers the optimal balance of performance and networking capability.

70% Realme 9 5G review: Budget ‘5G-ready’ phone, but worth considering?
Source: The Indian Express English
The Realme 9 5G has some positives. The performance is not bad for the price—the display and battery life should keep most users happy. And yes, this is a 5G ready if that matters right now to you. The selfie camera is not bad either. But the rear camera delivers an average performance in my view. The slow charging will also be a disappointment for some users. Consider the Realme 9 5G if you are looking for a 5G phone for under Rs 18,000. I would say it is better to get one with extra RAM and storage, though the 4GB RAM option costs Rs 14,999 and does make it appealing. The 6GB RAM+128GB storage option costs Rs 17,499. Other options to consider are the Redmi Note 11T, which has the same MediaTek chipset, and there’s the Poco X4 Pro 5G and Vivo T1 5G.

80% Realme 9 5G Speed Edition Review: The Need for Speed
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Realme 9 5G Speed Edition is definitely more appealing than the standard Realme 9 5G (Review) but there's a considerable price difference. This model packs in a powerful SoC, very high refresh rate display, and big 5,000mAh battery. It also supports 30W fast charging, which is convenient. In my opinion, the base variant of the Realme 9 5G SE, which is priced at Rs. 19,999, is the one to get. This variant does not have many direct competitors and offers the maximum bang for your buck if you're looking for good performance. If you are considering the higher variant for the additional RAM, the iQoo Z5 (Review) would be a better option. It uses the same Snapdragon 778G SoC, but also has stereo speakers and faster 44W charging, for only a small bump in cost. On the other hand, if camera performance is a priority you could consider spending a little extra for the Realme 9 Pro+ 5G (Review).

Okay, time to wrap up this review of the Realme 9 Speed Edition. As I said in the intro, is this the gaming phone to get in this price range? Non-arguably the answer is Yes! We are thrilled by the level of optimization Realme has done on their end to deliver such an incredible performance. Having said that, this is by no means an all-arounder device. For a more standard workload—think music streaming, taking photographs, or texting—a more well-rounded option like the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus would be a better bet for most.

70% Realme 9 5G Speed Edition review: Affordable powerhouse with 5G, but is there a catch?
Source: The Indian Express English
The Realme 9 5G Speed Edition is not a bad device, but it really fails to stand out in the plethora of mid-range phones we already have. Sacrifices like an ultrawide camera and stereo speakers, which would have been much more useful than the 144Hz refresh rate and the 2MP sensors on the back, leave this phone in a space where it’s hard to recommend to people looking for a complete package. The phone, however, is still one of the cheapest Snapdragon 778G devices you can buy and that is a win. If you seek Snapdragon 700-series performance with 5G under 20,000, you can go for the Realme 9 5G Speed Edition, only if you’re okay with the compromises that it comes with.

70% Realme 9 5G Review: Rare combo of 5G, performance, value!
Source: The Times of India English
Realme 9 5G does a lot of things well, and most things above average considering the price range. And with its more optimized Dimensity 810 SoC, performance has never remained the question. The smartphone has gone under the radar for many, but we believe it truly is a hidden gem which could be just perfect for your everyday smartphone usage. And even if you go for an occasional BGMI game or download some heavy apps temporarily, the smartphone can handle it, although at the cost of heating up. So, if you are looking for a sub-Rs. 15,000 smartphones which can do it all and with consistency, you will be hard pressed to find a better smartphone. It is definitely not a specialist smartphone with an AMOLED display like Poco M4 Pro, great camera like Realme 8i or a gaming focus like Vivo U20, but that is a good thing as people rarely want a one trick pony in the budget segment, and such amazing features cannot be availed without some significant cost-cutting in other areas. Our verdict, this smartphone is truly the underrated budget king.

The 6GB RAM variant of the Realme 9 5G is priced at Rs. 17,499, while an equally spec'd variant of the Realme 8s 5G would cost just Rs. 500 more. The latter would offer better value as it has a higher-resolution 64-megapixel camera and 33W fast charging. The base variant of the Realme 9 5G is priced at Rs. 14,999 and is better value for money than the one I tested. If you are a casual user, you could consider this, but I would recommend you take a look at the Redmi Note 11 instead as it has an AMOLED display, stereo speakers, and 33W charging. It lacks 5G, but none of the network providers in India even offer this right now, so it might not be a massive loss.

realme 9 5G Hands-On and First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English
The realme 9 5G comes with Android 11 out-of-the-box with older realme UI 2.0 based. You will find a handful of realme smartphones running the newer realme UI version 3.0, including its Pro variant, the realme 9 Pro 5G. Moving to its battery, the phone packs a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging support. The price for the 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage variant starts at ₹14,999 and ₹17,499 for its 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant. What’s interesting is its Ripple Holographic Design, it gives stunning light reflections (Stargaze White) while the Dimensity 810 processor is an upgrade from its predecessor, the rest seems to be identical to the realme 8 5G. You can, however, grab the same 6 GB + 128 GB variant of its sibling realme 9 Pro 5G by adding ₹500 to get better overall specs.

70% Realme 9 5G First Impressions: A Budget Phone for 2022
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Realme 9 5G is made of plastic, and while the build quality is fine, it isn't especially impressive at first touch. Unlike previous models, there's no attention-grabbing design flair here. The phone is available in Stargaze White and Meteor Black. The former finish, which is what I have with me, catches the light at certain angles and refracts pinkish-yellowish tones, while the latter is plain and simple. This phone is 8.5mm thick and weighs a reasonable 188g. The rear panel curves on the sides to meet the plastic frame, making this phone relatively comfortable to hold and use. The fingerprint sensor is integrated into a recessed power button which is within reach. You'll find volume buttons and the SIM tray on the left (with two Nano-SIM slots and a microSD card slot). The bottom has a USB Type-C port, 3.5mm audio socket, and speaker. The Realme 9 5G isn't going to turn any heads in terms of design. It also doesn't have the sort of specifications that will immediately draw people in.

Realme has made a safe bet with its latest contender, the Realme 9 5G. In fact, the handset’s specs are nothing to write home about but despite that, the handset is still a viable contender in the budget segment. While I would’ve liked to see a more capable camera array as well as a fancier design, users opting for the phone will find the Realme 9 5G’s performance, display quality, and software experience up to the required standard. It remains to be seen how well Xiaomi and POCO respond to Realme’s continuous bombardment of products below the Rs 15,000 mark.

75% Realme 9 review: Good enough doesn’t make the cut
Source: Android Police English
Maybe. Compared to its 5G sibling, the Realme 9 4G adds a nice OLED panel, an in-display fingerprint reader, Android 12, and a faster 33W charger. These are some solid reasons to get the 4G model, especially considering it costs just ₹500 (~$7) more and 5G connectivity is nowhere near fruition in India. However, all the other aspects of the phone are holding it back. The lack of a stereo speaker pair already puts it behind the competition, and Realme’s decision to use a middling processor (when its own 9 Pro uses a beefier chip for the same price) doesn’t seem right. While giving buyers a lot of options makes sense, Realme has to draw the line somewhere. In the current state, there are multiple phones from the company in the sub-₹20,000 segment, and the Realme 9 4G is probably the most confused of them all. It’s neither fully meant for entertainment (without stereo speakers) nor is it good for gaming (thanks to the processor), and above all, the low-light camera performance is among the weakest on any phone of this price.

The realme 9 gives awesome bang-for-your-buck for less than RM1000, here's why
Source: Tech Nave English
Other than the above, the realme 9 comes with other useful features. This includes the under-display fingerprint sensor, 33W fast charging, microSD card support (up to 256GB), and more. Overall, it's a pretty good deal at RM899 for the 6GB variant or RM999 for the 8GB variant. If you need an affordable mid-ranger that looks good and has a high pixel count camera, you might want to check this one out. If you want to know more, do visit the official realme website.

Realme 9 Review: Good "All-in-One" recipe but lacks excitement
Source: The Times of India English
Verizon has come up with an exciting offer for iPhone 13. At present, the iPhone 13 costs $699. Verizon is offering a flat discount of $439 on the smartphone to bring the price down to $260. That in itself is a great offer but Verizon takes it to the next level by including a zero down payment EMI (easy monthly installment) where the user only needs to pay $10 per month for the 128GB variant. There are only two rules to avail the Green iPhone 13 price cut offer. The interested shopper will have to buy a new line of Verizon and get an unlimited plan on it. Under this offer, users will have to stay with the Verizon plan starting $10 for 36 months straight. If you want a higher storage variant, they are also available in the iPhone 13 price cut offer. You can get the 256GB variant at a cost of $12.77 per month and the 512GB variant is available at $18.33 per month. If the green color does not fascinate you, all the other colorways are also available in this limited time deal.

70% Realme 9 4G review: a reasonably good choice in the affordable segment
Source: 91mobiles English
I really think that the Realme 9 would have made more sense if the 5G version’s Dimensity 810 SoC could have made its way to the former and removed the need for the latter entirely. Everything that the Realme 9 5G lacks is fulfilled by the regular Realme 9’s specs. There is a much better camera involved, an AMOLED panel that has a jittery 90Hz refresh rate but much better colour reproduction. The charging speeds are faster and authentication is done with a trusty in-display fingerprint sensor. Even on the software side, the Realme 9 comes with Android 12 out of the box while the 5G model is still on the previous version. If only the Realme 9’s performance was better, the device would have been surely a top recommendation in my book. Users looking for a good gaming experience on a budget can certainly do with better devices in the same price range like the Samsung Galaxy F23 (review) or the iQOO Z6 (review). That said, the new Realme 9 does come across as a compelling option that gets a lot of things right.

Surprisingly, it runs on the Android 12 operating system with realme’s latest UI, the realme UI 3.0. The realme UI 3.0 was released a few months ago and a handful of realme smartphones have already received the update, thankfully realme has put the latest UI on the realme 9 whilst the realme 9 5G variants are still on the older 2.0 version. Moving to its battery, the smartphone packs a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging support. The price for the 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant starts at ₹17,999 and the price for its 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant is ₹18,999. What we like about the phone is its 90 Hz Super AMOLED, its light-weight and slim form factor, 108 MP camera, and a decent performing Snapdragon chip. You can grab the realme 9 using an ongoing discount of a flat ₹2,000, the sale starts on 12th April 2022 on Flipkart and realme.com.

Realme 9 5G Speed (SE) Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Realme mainstream series are known for the overall great experience, and from our first-hand experience, we can say that the Realme 9 5G Speed Edition smartphone does live up to the legacy. Besides this, it’s can be considered one of the best phones under the 20k Indian INR budget. The phone is a great combo of 5G connectivity, impressive processing power, a long-lasting battery, suitable camera result, and a smooth interface layout. Moreover, the single speaker audio output is better than some company’s dual stereo speakers. Overall, if you are looking for a worthy deal, the Realme 9 5G Speed is highly recommended. However, if you are looking for something with similar specs in a bit less budget, the Realme 9 can be considered a great deal.

Realme 9 5G SE Review – Best Performer Under 20,000
Source: Cashify English
You can see right away that the Realme 9 5G SE is all about speed and performance. The Realme 9 5G SE is a serious contender with the fastest display within its price range. Those of you who enjoy mobile gaming will find the Realme 9 5G SE to be an excellent choice for them. It boasts a display with a high refresh rate, an impressively fast and reliable chipset, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a battery that lasts for a long time. It has a 5G connectivity, which makes it future-proof also. However, the phone puts too much attention on performance and not enough on the role of the cameras. Sadly, the cameras on this phone aren’t up to the mark. Stereo speakers as well as an IP certification are also missing from the phone. Overall, we’d only suggest it to avid gamers or performance buffs who don’t plan on using the camera much. For people who care about the cameras, there are many other options on the market that can be better than this one.

76% Realme 9 SE Review: The Need for Speed
Source: Tech PP English
The Realme 9 SE is officially sold in two RAM and memory configurations; the 6+12GB variant is sold for Rs.19,999, and the 8+128GB is sold for Rs.22,999. The device ticks many boxes for this price and lives up to its SE day with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G chipset. In addition to great performance, you get a smooth 144Hz display, excellent battery life, good build quality, and more. So if you are looking for a device for heavy tasks or gaming, you should buy the Realme 9 SE because it will not disappoint you. However, if you are looking for a device for media consumption, you are better off with the Redmi Note 11 Pro/Pro+ as you get an AMOLED display and dual stereo speaker support.

70% Realme 9 5G SE Review: Gaming monster on a budget
Source: The Times of India English
It is clear to see that Realme 9 5G SE emphatically focuses on its speed and performance (it’s in the name, after all). And if it is the pure powerful smartphone experience you seek, then this smartphone is a no-brainer, honestly. However, it does feel that while focusing on the performance, Realme did cut corners with some other features. From a just above-average camera performance to lack of AMOLED display, the overall experience of the smartphone i somewhat reduced. If you are looking for a gaming smartphone or a smartphone which can run some very heavy apps, then this is a really good choice. However, if gaming is not your priority and you are an everyday smartphone user, Realme 9 5G SE is probably a little bit of an overkill and you could easily find other alternatives which focus on either the display or camera as per your requirements.

realme 9 5G Speed Edition Hands-On and First Impressions
Source: Mobygyaan English
The realme 9 5G Speed Edition boots with the older realme UI 2.0 based on the Android 11 operating system. Several realme smartphones offer the realme UI version 2.0, however, a newer version of the operating system already exists, a few realme smartphones have already received the realme UI 3.0 update – realme 9 Pro, and realme 9 Pro+ runs on the latest realme 3.0 UI. On the battery side, the smartphone offers a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 30W Dart fast charging that takes about 25 minutes to charge the battery up to 50%. Overall, the realme 9 5G Speed Edition offers a better CPU and a smooth 144 Hz refresh rate that seems beneficial for gamers. The price for the 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant starts at ₹19,999 and ₹22,999 for its 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant.

The Realme 9 5G SE is a power-packed contender with the smoothest display in its price bracket. Now, the handset’s design doesn’t feel as premium and the lack of stereo speakers stings a bit too. Furthermore, the unit’s low-light camera performance lacks behind competing products as well. On the bright side, the device offers mobile gamers a solid avenue to explore graphically-intensive titles without burning a hole in their wallet. My only concern is that the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ offers better camera hardware, an OLED panel, and faster charging for just Rs 1,000 more. Be that as it may, if you are looking for a performance-focussed phone with a clean UI, the Realme 9 5G SE will not disappoint you.

Realme 9 5G Speed Edition First Impressions: Balancing Performance and Price?
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The ‘speed' in Realme 9 5G Speed Edition comes from the powerful SoC, 5G support, 144Hz refresh rate, and fast charging capability. It looks as though this phone will appeal to gamers and anyone who prioritises performance over all else. However, the camera specifications are disappointing, and this isn't the best-looking phone in its segment. Gamers might also want stereo sound, which is missing here. There are plenty of options that offer different balances of specifications for under Rs. 20,000, and if you're considering the higher-end variant with more RAM, competition is even fiercer. It should be interesting to see whether the performance, battery life, and camera quality are compelling enough to attract buyers, so do stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for a full review, coming up soon.

realme:


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

Qualcomm Adreno 610: Integrated (in the Snapdragon 665) graphics card based on the Adreno 600 architecture. The performance of the GPU is between the Adreno 510 and 512/612 and therefore in the lower mid range. Supports DirectX11_1, Vulkan 1.0, OpenCL 2.0, OpenGL ES 3.2.

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ARM Mali-G68 MP4: Integrated mid range graphics card with 4 clusters based on the Valhall architecture. 

Qualcomm Adreno 642L: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 40% faster than the Adreno 620.
