The Realme 9i 5G is by no means a bad device, but it has tough competition from Motorola, Xiaomi, and especially Realme itself. For the starting price of Rs. 14,999 for the 4GB + 64GB variant and Rs. 16,999 for the 6GB + 128GB variant, Realme has cut some corners to offer a 5G device at this price. The biggest disappointments of the Realme 9i 5G are the cameras and charging speed. Realme could squeeze in an AMOLED display, perhaps stereo speakers, or faster charging to make the package more compelling, but there’s not much that sets it apart from the other offerings in a similar price range other than 5G. If you just want a device that offers decent performance and battery life while everything else is just average. Then you can go ahead with the Realme 9i 5G. The Dimensity 810 chipset will not disappoint you in terms of performance.

The Realme 9i 5G is virtually similar to the Realme 9i 4G but gets 5G and a big performance boost at the cost of features such as stereo speakers, fast charging and a better selfie camera. So, if 5G tops the feature list for you, the Realme 9i 5G makes sense in every way. It’s affordable, looks unique enough to grab attention, has a powerful processor that you can game on and has a good primary camera for your daily needs. Though if features like fast charging, stereo speakers and a better display make your cut, you should definitely look at phones such as the Poco M4 Pro 5G, Samsung Galaxy F23 and Infinix Note 12, to name a few.

Let me get this straight, the Realme 9i 5G does not bring a lot of improvements or upgrades over the non-5G version. Realme is just putting its bet on the design factor, which is not the preference of everyone. The performance is decent paired with the 90Hz display. The battery backup is good which adds to the overall user experience. However, Realme has cut many corners just to make an affordable 5G phone. I cannot overlook the slow charging speeds, the lack of AMOLED display and underwhelming camera performance. Honestly, I wouldn’t say that the Realme 9i 5G is the best deal under 15K. There are many more options that you can consider in this price range like the POCO M4 Pro 5G.

For the asking price of Rs 14,999, the Realme 9i 5G is not the most feature-rich smartphone out there. Some of the similarly priced phones such as the Samsung Galaxy F23 5G are available with a 120Hz refresh rate screen and 25W fast charging solution, while the Infinix Note 12 5G sports an AMOLED panel and 33W fast charging tech. That said, the Realme 9i 5G looks the part of a stylish product and the device offers good performance, impressive battery life as well as a decent set of cameras. All said and done, while not the best in its segment, the Realme 9i 5G warrants a second look.

The number of 5G smartphones in the midrange category is rising, the realme 9i 5G is among the latest affordable 5G smartphones with attractive design aesthetics, faster 6nm Dimensity 810 CPU, realme UI 3.0 that offers a bunch of features, smooth 90 Hz screen, and 18W fast charging. Things which we miss on this phone are the stereo speakers, and faster 33W charging both of which are available on its 4G variant (realme 9i). As for our initial impressions, we think, at the price of ₹14,999, the realme 9i 5G is recommended if you are looking for a 5G smartphone in this range with reasonable performance and looks, it has all the boxes checked.

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.
Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
69%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
